You're in terrible danger girl..

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!

My new favorite thing

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.

2 Headed Kittens are magic

I have never seen anything so cute yet so disgusting at the same time. I really can't look away. Apparently both heads can meow, but only one can eat. Poor other head!

RIP Pushing Daisies

My favorite show, Pushing Daisies, got cancelled. Of course it did, because I don't watch shows and once I decided too it gets cancelled. Thank goodness for DVD so I can enjoy its two short seasons forever..
Besides Lio, my favorite comic is Bliss. Check it out at Now I must go prepare myself for "Twilight" this weekend. I am seeing it on Sunday, by which time every other female in the world will have seen it at least twice. From what I hear so far it is a complete cheesefest, but that should not be surprising considering the source material. I am not ashamed to admit I'm dying to see it.

Vincent Price's Halloween Special

So SNL does not totally suck this season, and this is proof. Sorry about the little commercial though. It is the only drawback to

Thumbs Up!

Finally dragged myself out of the house to see "Quantum of Solace" last night. I enjoyed the film very much. It was not as good as "Casino Royale" but still better than the last few pre-Craig Bond flicks.
The real reason I was excited to see this flick was because I knew they were putting the new "Star Trek" trailer in front of it. The trailer looks awesome but I really need to watch it obsessively a few more times. It should be showing up online any minute now..


Still waiting for a good non-bootleg version of the new Star Trek trailer to show up online. In the meantime, enjoy the new Watchmen trailer. I like the Muse song way better than the Smashing Pumpkins one.

Les Baxter Part 2

Check out all the groovy album covers. Can you tell I am suppossed to be doing something else right now?

Les Baxter Part 1

Here is the man in action. This is pretty tame but wait till you see the tribute video.

Total Movie Awesomeness!!!

I am so loving AIP films and Roger Corman. The most recent one I saw was "House of Usher" starring Vincent Price (shocker: nothing like the story). This movie is really good. The set design is fantastic, the acting is great (well, Vincent Price's acting is great, as always), and the screenplay was written by Richard Matheson! He is one of my favorites, and I didn't realize when I started watching it that he wrote it.
Vincent Price plays one of his "tortured souls" here, not really a bad man but an incredibly doomed one. While watching the film I kept feeling that there was just something a little "funky" about it (being filmed in 1960 it is kinda early for really funky) and then, again at the credits, I realized what it was:

Les Baxter did the score! Although not quite the acid trip that the score for "Dunwich Horror" was, this was is still pretty groovy.

Coming Attractions..

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.

My new Favorite NBA Player

He sounds like Barry White. (not really)

Family Guy

Here is something I watched last night that I can feel good about!

Movie Shame

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.

For Pumpkin

Here is your favorite poem!

Dealing with RA

In trying to deal with RA (not Sun RA but the other kind) I have decided to name the various bumps and icky swollen parts of my body. My left hand bump is "Ozzie" (that one is not big) and my right hand bump is "Harriet" (very big). My knuckles are "the boys" and when they hurt they hurt bad, and my left foot is just now known as Frankenstein. But it is pronounced "Fwankenstein." Other body parts up for naming are my right foot, both hips, my left elbow, and my left shoulder. Other potential names include Satan, Crowley, Nosferatu, and Bob Talbot. I will keep everyone updated.

Warning: Commerical!

Sorry for the commercial break. This is the funniest commercial I have ever seen.

Thursday, November 6, 2008

Why the internet is AWESOME!

See more funny videos at Funny or Die

Because you can waste time watching shit like this. By the way, was anyone watching CNN's coverage of election night? The Holograms really freaked me out. I had to turn the channel.

Poe Triple Feature..

This was a "three in one" DVD I got from Netflix, all starring Bela Lugosi. Two of them also starred Boris Karloff, who was referred to as "Karloff" and got top billing which must of royally pissed off Lugosi. Although everyone says the two men were friends and got along very well, Lugosi knew he made a HUGE mistake when he turned down the role of Frankenstein and let that upstart Karloff nab it. Anyway, the first film, the Raven, resembles Poe's poem in that there is a raven in it, although it is just a statue. Released in 1936, many call it Lugosi's best performance outside of Dracula. And he is very creepy as a Poe obsessed surgeon who builds torture devices for fun. Karloff plays a criminal on the run who Lugosi "blackmails" into helping him off the family of the woman he loves. By blackmail I mean he disfigures his face a refuses to fix it until his diabolical plan is complete. Some dark shit for 1936. No wonder it was films like this, with the themes of torture, revenge, and disfigurement that led to a ban on horror films in England. Those Brits are so uptight.

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.
Anyway, I am taking a break from Lugosi and Karloff for a while. I am all about Vincent Price now. I taped about 20 films over Halloween week and the majority of them star Price. Do you know that he never got a dime for his "rap" on Thriller? MJ is a bastard. Also, when you spellcheck, it is going to insist that "Satan" be capitalized.

Post Election day reactions..

Yao's reaction to hearing that Prop 8 passed in California. We are really bummed out about this but we also know that the fight is far from over.

And we of course are super happy about this and thrilled to actually feel proud of our country again. I just couldn't find a picture of Yao happy. In most of them he just looks annoyed. I wonder why?

Cool Stuff

"The Birds" barbie doll available at Amazon. I want it SO bad!
The new poster for Coraline: the movie comes out in February and its in 3-D! Yeah!

The fact that it is election day and everything is very exciting! If Prop 8 passes I will really, really want to leave California. I already voted a few days ago (by mail) but I do have a "I Voted" sticker. Frankenstein is wearing it.
