Great footage of Tor Johnson with Groucho Marx on You Bet Your Life.Read more "Halloween Bonus: Tor Johnson on You Bet Your Life"
Note: This was written for a roundtable on another site that fell through due to lack of outside response, so I have graciously stolen it back for your Halloween reading pleasure. With all the great older genre stuff that is turning up on Amazon Prime, it was suggested that everyone pick something suitably weird and […]Read more "Prime Cuts: The Black Sleep (1956)"
I am seeing the writing on the wall for Facebook. Their continued efforts to make the site user unfriendly, only showing you what their algorithm decides you will like in the order they will allow you to see it, and their now near-constant censorship and censuring of anyone who thinks non-approved thoughts mean that it […]Read more "I’m Now on MeWe"
Why were the 80s all about the Post-Apocalypse anyway? Even the music videos all took place After The End.Read more "Music (videos) for the Post-Apocalypse"
As per my previous post, B-Fest 2020 dates have been announced early this year. Looks like it will be February 7th and 8th at Northwestern University. They have been poor about keeping the website updated the last few years, but when tickets go on sale, (which has been anywhere from Novemebr to the first week […]Read more "B-Fest 2020 Dates"
*NOTE* This has been sitting in my drafts folder 80% complete for 6 months. I got to a certain point, hit the wall and blanked on how to deal with the pain (the reason why will be obvious). Then I refused to post anything else because I hadn’t finished my annual B-Fest write up (as […]Read more "B-Fest 2019 – Crap and More Crap"
I know, I know, lame just linking to other stuff. Still knee deep in Polish, (which is worth a post or two itself at some point) but things should settle out later next month. Enjoy!Read more "Happy (Early) Halloween"
And yet the damned thing works. [Sorry folks, I’ve been knee deep in Polish studies since February, this is just me coming up for air for a second. I tend to overdo whatever has caught my interest at the moment and I am probably going to remain a bit buried until December or so.]Read more "Weirdest Thing I’ve Heard Today"
Saw this and thought it was just weird enough to share. Kiss’s 1970’s proto-metal ode to mild pedophilia (well, one of them, but at least Christine Sixteen is less disturbing than Domino, given that the age difference was a lot less in the mid 70s than the mid 90s) as an acoustic set by a […]Read more "Odd Choice for an Acoustic Set"
Maiden Cartoons. Which is exactly what it sounds like, at least if you, like me, prefer heavy riffs to Disney Princesses. Seriously though, these are clearly a labor of love and devotion for the animator. There are far too many to share, but here’s a little taste. If you have a whole afternoon (or two) […]Read more "One For the “Stuff I Didn’t Know About But Needed To” File"
