Reminder: Fuck Spirit Halloween

It’s the 9th of October and it’s my annual reminder that Spirit Halloween is a peddler of cheap shit and horribly racist and sexist costumes (and just some downright idiotic ones).  And that’s even before you factor in the allegations of their parent company stocking goods which are claimed to use stolen designs. I mean, …

Welcome to SJTV: Tales From The Crypt, as we start to recap the second season of the HBO series Tales From The Crypt. In the initial installment, the future George Bluth Sr. decides to woo the future ex-Mrs. Bruce Willis in an episode that shows that money is thicker than water. Or something. DEAD RIGHT …

Stop the Countdown!

Over the past weekend, I walked into a Party City to kill some time and see if there was any creepy-Birthday related supplies as a last minute celebration of a particular bat-winged DJ I know. And, despite it not even being August, there was a section that had been cleared out, plastered with orange wallpaper …

13 Days: Christmas Trees

[audio:http://gdl16.com/audio/Carol.mp3] It wasn’t my choice, but I grew up in the Northeast corner of the Empire State, far beyond the cities that jump to mind when someone says they’re from New York. Whenever I talk to someone about the North Country versus New York City, I champion the city’s iron grip on keeping trees in …

On Halloween

Halloween is the one day of the year where the creeps of the world get to celebrate our creepiness and the rest of the world can just step back and kiss our wart laden asses.- Blag Dahlia     While the origins of Halloween emanate from Celtic pagan celebrations of Samhain mixed with a little bit …

I Got The Spirit But Lose The Feeling

(aka Fuck You Spirit Halloween 2013) Happy Halloween Season, ladies and gentlemen and all those in between. There’s a lot of swearing in this one. A month ago, I received a comment on a past article I wrote, which in itself is an odd phenomenon. In a sea full of horror blogs, we’re good but …

At My End

Go see The World’s End this summer. Don’t go see This Is The End. The World’s End is made by people who actually give a fuck. This is The End is made by people who are fucking around. There is a much more eloquent way to put these sentiments but do you really need it? …

Dear Greg (Don’t Be A Dick)

Hi Greg. How’s it going? You don’t know me. I think we might have a mutual friend. Maybe. I’m not sure. So take this disclaimer under the a miniscule chance that we somehow meet in the future. I don’t have any issue with you as a person, Greg. In fact, even after reading most of …

Halloween R.I.P.

For the second year in a row, Halloween has been slain (or postponed) due to bad weather in the Northeast. Sure, it’s only the 29th here, but where I am, we’ve got about seventy-two hours of doing absolutely NOTHING until this Hurricane passes by. With trick-or-treating being likely rescheduled for this Saturday, it might be …

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. …

Operation Spirit (aka Fuck You, Spirit Halloween)

Sometime last week, I wrote a diatribe about Spirit Halloween. There are many reasons for me to hate Spirit Halloween, the second of the most grievous offenses being the overpriced line of stupid, racist, and sexist costumes. The hate-fueled rant included a lot of obscenities, since the title ‘Fuck You, Spirit Halloween’ set the tone. …

Thinking about Halloween 2012

It’s two days before October when I write this. Tonight, I’m headed out to Otto’s Shrunken Head to see the Tombstone Brawlers and hang with the monsters in an event that waves good-bye to September. (The Vibrators are also playing elsewhere but free show+drinks > show w/ticket + drinks in my cash-strapped state.) Come Monday, when …

Blurry Pictures and Hazy Thoughts on the Second day of the 2012 Psychobilly Luau

The second of the three nights of the 2012 Psychobilly Luau took place at the Bell House, a hall tucked off in an warehouse cranny in Brooklyn; plenty of parking for the drivers and close enough to the 4th-Ave stop on the F/G for straphangers. For the eastern psycho, July 2012 held such promise with …

Grudgingly

It really doesn’t make sense for me to hate on him. I still do and I still won’t watch his work but damn. Damn.  Joss Whedon’s Cabin In The Woods had Norman “Baron Shivers of the The Ghastly Ones” Cabrera as the lead artist is something that…. Well. It’s one of those “Goddamnit, you’re not making …

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 …

SOPA 2012

Today (January 18th, 2012) is when a coordinated effort by most of the major web sites and services (Google, Wikipedia, The Oatmeal) have ‘gone black’ in protest of  H.R. 3261 or ‘Stop Online Piracy Act.’ We’re not going black because, honestly, it requires more CSS scripting than what I currently know. I personally oppose SOPA and …
