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.
