So I forgot to sing "There's a Party in my Tummy" this morning at breakfast but I did sing it last night at dinner and this afternoon at lunch. I can't wait to sing it at Thanksgiving dinner!! I might have to sing it as a silent little prayer to myself since I don't want people thinking I am totally crazy. I could pretend I am saying grace, but I will be really whispering "There's a Party in my Tummy, so Yummy, so Yummy" and everyone will think I found God.
Anyway, here is the movie trailer to Coraline, one of my favorite books. It looks like they are emphasizing the more whimsical aspects of the story, which is OK, but the book is really, really scary and I hope that translates to the film.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

This video made me so happy I actually started crying. Many thanks to Displaydude for this one. I am going to sing this every time I eat, and don't think I won't. In other news I am not quite ready to talk about "Twilight" yet because if I think about it or see it one more time I might just puke. I liked it, but now I need to watch something like "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" just to clear my palatte.

Here are some movies I can't wait to see. WARNING: Those with sensitive stomachs should not watch these (especially the third one). If you are offended by nudity, decapitation, and making fun of national holidays: DO NOT WATCH! NOT safe for work. NOT safe for home. Please do not let any children or pets be in the room while watching these. In fact, really, only Dwido should watch them. These are for you Dwido: the best bits from Grindhouse. The Thanksgiving one is really my favorite.

Last night I watched 10 minutes of a film called "Gangs of the Dead", also known as "Last Rites," also known as "48 Weeks Later." When a film has 3 titles you know it is bad. Do I even need to describe the plot? It's a remake of "Dawn of the Dead" with gang members. Instead of being trapped in a mall they are trapped in a warehouse. Here is a sample piece of dialogue:
"Yo man, the bums are eating the cops!"
"They must be hungry."
After this I turned it off and took a shower. I just can't watch every piece of shit horror film out there. I am just not there yet.

The next film, "Murders in the Rue Morgue" resembles Poe's story the most, but that is not saying much. The focus moves away from the detectives (Poe's story is said to be the first "detective" story) and to a new character, played by Lugosi. Lugosi's character is, of course, a mad doctor who dreams of creating some kind of human/ape hybrid. Of course he needs whores to inject with ape blood, and they all die, hence the murders. That is not, of course, in Poe's short story.
Finally, the most disturbing is "The Black Cat," which is an art deco nightmare. This movie is so twisted it features kitty-cats getting shot (they had to tie it into the title somehow: Lugosi's character is deathly afraid of cats and kills them. He is the good guy.) Satan worship, war criminals, dead women being preserved in tanks and being put on display, and a "skinning" scene are other highlights of this film. The "skinning" is left to the imagination of course, but it still freaked me out. I am amazed that they got away with all of this in 1934! This was the best film of the bunch, and it too, in no way, resembles Poe's short story. Poe's "Black Cat" is actually one of his creepiest, in my humble opinion. They could have filmed the complete story and it would still be as freaky as hell.
