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"
26 January 2018. The sun sets over Lake Michigan as a cool breeze ruffles the hair of the secretive creatures that scutter towards their lair for the next 24 hours. The time, 6:00 PM; the place, Norris Auditorium; and the event all these curiously masochistic examples of humanity have gathered for; B-Fest 2018 It Begins: […]Read more "B-Fest 2018 – Craptastic Voyage"
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"
This may be the most honest sentiment I have ever seen expressed by the Department of Veterans Affairs. “Sorry for any convinence(sic)” indeed.Read more "Spotted at My Local VA Hospital This Morning"
For those who have been paying attention, possible my very favorite craptastic 80’s B-Actioner is the absolutely bizarre Gene Simmons/John Stamos/Vanity vehicle Never Too Young to Die (no it’s not a vanity picture, it’s a Vanity picture). While I was off on my involuntary beach vacation (minus the ocean), the good folks at Shout Factory […]Read more "“Never Too Young To Die” Finally Gets Official DVD/Bluray Release"
Remember my Halloween Monster Music Video Countdown from a few years back? Well, I came across this beauty today and was 1) shocked I’d never come across it before given my predilection for metal and silly videos and 2) absolutely devastated that I hadn’t know about it to include it last go-round. Ghoulies and Blackie […]Read more "How Did I Miss This One?"
Now I just have to make sure I have properly allowed for the time difference between California and Undisclosed Desert Location™ and that the new episodes are actually all available on Netflix for your streaming pleasure… My initial thoughts on the overall aesthetic and the first movie choice still stand, so I won’t reiterate here, […]Read more "Hurrah! Now I’m Allowed a Real Chat! (Warning: Massive MST3K Spoilers Ahead)"
Got preview access to the rest of Season Eleven today and my initial impression remains positive. The movie choices include some infamously notorious stinkers that are well suited for Jonah and the bots to take apart as well as some more obscure choices that I suspect will be new to even the most hardened MSTies. […]Read more "More New MST3K Thoughts. Nope, No Spoilers, I Promised Joel. "
Fair warning: I can’t really talk about this without one minor spoiler, the title of the movie featured in the first episode, also revealed in the teaser trailer below. If you truly desire a blind first look on Friday, I’d skip this and go play outside. Get some fresh air and exercise, why don’t you? […]Read more "MST3K Returns!

Thought it was time to re-institute this as a fun feature and you can never go wrong with a little Billy Idol. That and I needed something I could get up in a hurry as the piece I’m working up about Emerald City is threatening to get completely out of control and turn into an […]Read more "Word Salad Wednesdays: Billy Idol-White Wedding"
