Mother Nature is a harsh mistress. Her storms can send houses flying through the air, her earthquakes cause the tallest of buildings to crumble into dust, and her bitter cold seasons have a way of sending more than just retired folk racing for the equator. Even if you’re a scientist trying to figure out a way to grow trees in the desert, like nature enthusiast/scientist Alec Holland was trying to do, that evil tree-bitch will totally ruin your day. In Holland’s case, she sent her minions to his swamp-lab to destroy stuff (mostly glass beakers with strange science liquids in them). Some of the liquids splashed onto him turning him into a massive pile of moss and leaves, hell-bent on protecting that which he became…a mighty Swamp Thing. Read the rest of this entry »
There are some who say that KFC is the McDonalds of chicken. I disagree. KFC is more like the Burger King of chicken; not good for you at all, yet still better than McDonalds. A new product joined the menu at KFC a few months back, hitting me right in the stomach. It’s called the “Double Down”, a sandwich that has pissed off health nuts across the globe. Smart people have been giving rave reviews of this wild concoction, but I wasn’t able to acquire one….until recently. Read the rest of this entry »
The closer we get to Halloween, the more it makes me think of all of the things that made Halloween great throughout my life. The parties and decorations, the Halloween sit-com specials on tv (I have a ritual to watch all of my favorites every year… especially the Roseanne specials) and, of course watching horror movies constantly! I have had an interest in terrible horror movies for about a decade, now, so I feel I’ve gathered enough useless knowledge to share with you a list of some of the absolute best worst movies I’ve come across over the years. Don’t take that the wrong way, though. When I say these movies are awful, they are, but in a good way. So I am still recommending that you see them regardless of how absolutely terrible they are. Nay, I demand you see them! I’m sure you’ll notice a listing or two on here that you’ll remember, but I also hope that you’ll find a couple of movies that you’ve never seen before that you will add to your Netflix queue immediately in honor of the upcoming “Month of Macabre”.
What possible reason could the folks at Sesame Street have for giving Katy Perry the boot? Boobs. Count ‘em. One, two, TWO BEAUTIFUL BOOBS!! AH AH AH!! It seems parents felt the singers tig-ole-bitties were too much of a focal point in her cleaned up version of Hot N’ Cold that she sings with Elmo for the show’s 41st season. TMZ has more info, however you should watch the video here. Check it out: Read the rest of this entry »
“We”re the Dream Warriors! We can be heroes inside of our dreams!“
Yes, I know those aren’t the correct lyrics to the song Dream Warriors by 80’s hair band Dokken. But did YOU know that that’s what they were going to be? Watch the Nightmare on Elm Street documentary Never Sleep Again. You just might learn a few things you never new before. Anyways, where was I? Oh yeah.
A rockin’ reunion took place at Monster Mania Con 16 last Saturday night, and I was in the very front row to witness it all. I actually hesitated to buy the VIP wristband, a thought that makes me want to jump in front of The Wizard Master’s green laser-beams. The Return of the Living Dead Q&A had just ended, and I was literally giddy like a school girl for the reunion I’d been waiting many months to see: the cast of Nightmare on Elm Street 3: The Dream Warriors.

Gorgeous fantasy women are hard to find. They need great legs, a killer rack, flat stomach, and hair that lightly tickles their butt-crack. Capturing such perfection on paper isn’t easy, I know cuz I’ve tried. But artist/illustrator David M. Bancroft has done just that, I shit you not. Read the rest of this entry »
One of the many amazing things that went down this weekend took place in Hunt Valley, Maryland. The 16th Monster Mania Con was full of horror icons, hula hooping babes, laughs, and lots of liquor. On top of all the chaos, Monster Mania President Dave Hagan arranged some kick ass events. Read the rest of this entry »
For those of you that like a little more narrative, here’s the conclusion to my trip to Helsinki for TUSKA 2010 in Kaisaniemi.
Almost 27 years later and the place still manages to draw in flocks of dudes. Perhaps it has something to do with the wonderful supply of fresh meat?
For your viewing pleasure, the Faroese Viking metal band TÝR. With themes ranging from the standard Viking Revival (above video) to Faroese Folklore songs like Tróndur í Gøtu and Turið Torkilsdóttir from their latest album, there’s something here even for the casual Viking metal listener.

After a mere 4 hours of sleep, I awoke to some rather upsetting news. Kevin McCarthy, one of the greatest character actors of all time, has died. These things happen and I’m growing more use to them thanks to the slew of celebrity deaths in the recent years. But when you’re a man who has uncovered an alien race of plant-people trying to take over the world, helped the government develop a breed of killer piranha that can live in cold water, and attempted to crush a punk kid’s UHF television station, fighting pneumonia in Cape Cod should be a minor inconvenience instead of a curtain call.

Why do aliens have a major beef with tall buildings? Did the biggest building in the universe fall over and crush their planet leaving them all pissed off? Do they simply loathe exercise and haven’t developed elevator technology causing them to be super jealous of us? I think they are sending us a clear message that one day we will make a building so tall that it will cause our ultimate destruction.
For 18 years Mortal Kombat has been delighting twisted youth everywhere. Even though most of that youth has now reached a twisted adulthood, most of those adults still love and enjoy a good fatality. Originally an arcade game created by Ed Boon and John Tobias (TOASTY!), the franchise was eventually picked up by Acclaim Entertainment, and Midway began releasing MK for the home console all the way up until the recent Mortal Kombat Vs DC Universe. In 2009, however, the franchise was sold to Warner Bros. who will be releasing the latest game in the series in early 2011.
