My home Con was cancelled this weekend (not that I was going anyway because they were being mask-Nazis, but I was going to go hang out in town enjoying myself while the rest of the fam went) and then got some nasty don’t-go-outside weather, so a good weekend for movies here. Had some friends over […]Read more "Sitting in front of the fire watching crap."
So what did everyone watch this weekend? This was the first weekend in at least a month that I had nothing scheduled, so I declared a plan-free mental health weekend, where my only goal was to go nowhere and do as little as possible. It actually managed to knock a few things off my long […]Read more "My I Aten’t Ded Post-Weekend Post."
Just acquired the Blu-Ray of the new UCLA restoration of The Mystery of the Wax Museum. The old DVD was way over color corrected towards blue, which is about as wrong as you can get for two-strip Technicolor. The new version is likely as good as it’s ever gonna look, which ain’t half bad. That […]Read more "New Restoration of Mystery of The Wax Museum on Blu-Ray"
Whoops, real life got crazy the last two days. Here’s a brilliant one man (OK, Leo has a famous guest helping this go-round, but he’s still the most brilliant one-man-metal-band in the world) cover of the MJ classic that combines all my favorite stuff especially cruise ships) all in one place. Man, I wish I’d […]Read more "Monster, Monster II – Thriller"

More 80s stuff. Although in all honesty, I never knew Lemmy and crew did any tie-in music until I was digging stuff out for this year’s list.

You knew I’d never let you get away without more Alice Cooper, right? Although even Alice seems to have mixed up creator and created here, ‘these aren’t my arms, and these legs ain’t mine’. Eh, who cares, it’s great stuff and guitarist Kane Roberts is a real life monster in his own right. Introduction to […]Read more "Monster, Monster II – Teenage Frankensterin"
