Halloween Propaganda

Look Below for the Largest Piece of Halloween Propaganda at my local video stores.



Yesterday, while I was pretending to be interested in renting movies from my nearest video store, I happened to notice they have set up their display for this Season of Halloween Horror-filled films.

This event is entitled "Spooky Cinema Series."

Indeed, the largest pieces of their display are the poster and cases of "Anacondas: The Hunt for the Blood Orchid."

For the Halloween Season, the spookiest choice they could muster up was a movie about a big scary snake....giggle giggle giggle.

They chose the Anaconda Franchise over Michael Myers in "Halloween" and even over "Earnest Scared Stupid!" WTF You Denigrating Bastards?

Strange Tastes in the Spooky.

In case you are wondering, I live in Alaska, and movie rentals are not a dying breed at all. There are as many video stores here as there are fast food hubs. In all seriousness, there is a rather charming "Video City" across from the Muldoon Trailer Park, and they are presently hiring. They only pay minimum wage, but free rentals are included......and yes, they sell porn......unless those X X Xs on top of their sign are lies three times over.
My question to you: if that is across from a trailer park, how has that position not yet been filled?

Serious
QATFYG:
Have you seen Anacondas: Hunt for the Blood Orchid?
Have you seen Anaconda 1?
And what movie will you use to kick off the Fall Halloween season?

I saw "Anaconda 1" about 13 times over the course of one weekend. I rented it, and I just kept watching it on repeat. No matter how many times I saw that one, Ice Cube just wouldn't die. It made no sense.

  2. "Anaconda" is such a guilty pleasure--J.Lo and Ice Cube (in the same movie!) battling a big, rubbery snake! Jon Voight regurgitated...yum!

  3. I love both these comments.

    Hey, if you can...possibly review Anaconda III for October. According to Alaskan standards this is as scary as things get.

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawson, send it

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

No Time to Fuck: The Goldfrapp Essay

Konnichiwa! This is Irina Cummings and I'm here to discuss one of the most brilliant, innovative, and creative artists in the entire history of mankind: Goldfrapp – or as I like to call them , GODfrapp – the fantastique, highly inspirational, and sometimes criminally overlooked electronic music duo from London consisting of Alison Goldfrapp and Will Gregory, whose godly music has certainly influenced the vast majority of today's synthpop ladies, including Lady Gaga, Little Boots, La Roux, Annie and Florence + the Machine (not electro but still worth your while). They're primarily known for their mind-blowing music (which have spanned pretty much every style of electronic music – and some non-electronic as well), their abstract, sexually ambiguous – at times forthright – lyrics which are often not gender- specific , and their elaborate shows, not to mention the amazing visual aesthetics of their work, conjuring images that masterly complement
