when I read the name in your review, my mind also went, "Wait, is this referring to Harlan Ellison?" Wonder if the name might also be a reference to his story "'Repent, Harlequin!' Said the Ticktockman"?
There's going to be a documentary of Harlan Ellison called "Dreams with Sharp Teeth" with Robin Williams and Neil Gaiman. I can't wait.
sounds odd, but its just like that one old twilight zone with the reality bender, except this time he's not being a lil bitch and bending reality for fun , he's just hankering fro some hot black canary, hey, id hit it.
