Checking On The Mainstream

or Strange Jason Goes to NYComicCon 2012 I went to the 2012 New York Comic Con and came home with a third hand. ‘Half-way’ would be the way I would best describe how I threw myself into NYCC. Out of the three days available for me and my companion, The 13th Doctor, we visited twice. …

Strange Trip: FRANKENSTEIN (1931)

Frankenstein IMDB   Seeing Frankenstein is akin to seeing The Godfather, listening to The Beatles or seeing Hamlet on the stage. These are all the pieces of art that you’re TOLD are great that the priority to actually ENGAGE them is diminished. As a mental deviant, the ‘classics’ were always ‘uncool’ to me. The guy …

Strange Trip: Critters 2

When I started to do these ‘strange trip’ reports, they started off as a moment-by-moment commentary but I bit off more than I can chew. Plus, reading a bunch of time-coded comments? How fun could that be? Until I find a way to create a GDL16 series of subtitles you can drop in with your …

Strange Trip: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2

When I first saw The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, I thought it was perfect. It wasn’t perfect in the sense that it was flawless. It was a perfect assembly that worked in thanks to, if not in spire, of its flaws, in its film’s deterioration, the amateur acting and the effects. It didn’t scare me, but …

Strange Trip: Friday the 13th

Friday the 13th was released on May 9th, 1980 and with that, our boy Jason turned thirty this year. Three decades of Jason and a lot can be said about him, his mother and the whole franchise. But really, I’m not the one to say it. Truth be told, I haven’t seen every single movie. …

Welcome to New Jersey!

The one time I have to go to the West coast in hell, five years, the one time I fly out past Chicago and keep going is the one weekend that Deadbolt decides to return to EST after a five year break. John from the Crimson Ghosts was there at the show and said it …

Throw back the coffin lid – and RISE!

(or, “Straight out of Massachusetts”) Holy smokes, has it been a year since I last wrote something? Pretty much.
