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."
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"
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"
In all honesty there is enough good stuff by The Merkins (yes, I know) out there that I could have featured a video a day all month. The musical parodies are dead on with the originals, which takes a lot more talent and work than folks credit. Here we have a whole collection of Monsters. […]Read more "Monster, Monster II – I’ll Kill You That Way"
More 80s movie goodness, although oddly, not a horror movie. But there is a devil in the video, so I’ll allow it. Introduction to the Monster, Monster II series here.Read more "Monster, Monster – Burn In Hell"
Happy weekend! Have some Cab Calloway. Introduction to the Monster, Monster II series here.Read more "Monster, Monster II – Saturday Morning Cartoon Edition"
[I know, 80s movie tie-ins two days in a row, but somehow I missed this one last time around and ended up featuring it out of season. I really had fun with this and wanted to feature it properly. -2020 Jane] Remember my Halloween Monster Music Video Countdown from a few years back? Well, I […]Read more "Monster, Monster II – Flashback Friday Edition"
Nanowar of Steel is probably one of the funniest yet epicly rocking acts in the euro-metal scene today. Seriously, you need to check out their stuff. This isn’t the best introduction to their oeuvre (that is probably Valhallelujah) but it ain’t a terrible place to start. Also this is basically the plot of the Rae […]Read more "Monster, Monster II -And Then I Noticed That She Was a Gargoyle"
Yes, it’s Vincent Price again, this time with more literal monsters in the shape of the Muppets. But it seems fitting, having watched Madhouse for the first time over the weekend, to give him a day all his own. Madhouse is currently on Amazon Prime and certainly worth a watch for either Price or Cushing […]Read more "Monster, Monster II – You’ve Got a Friend"
