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.

"Chang-E" - Emmy the Great (new album out 10/9)

Emmy the Great drops her new album tomorrow on Bella Union - the fastest album she says she's ever created.  "April /月音" was completed after a trip to to her birth city Hong Kong in 2017. In early 2018, Emmy the Great made "April /月音" in a two-week period in Brooklyn - which was delayed for release until now because of her maternity leave. After recording this album, Emmy moved (for good) back to Hong Kong.  Since her original trip to Hong Kong, things have become quite tumultuous there. Said Emmy. "I’ll never know why the city called me back, but I know what it gave me. In return, I want to give it this album. That Mid-Autumn, nobody could have predicted what was to come, neither the atomization that began with the anti-Extradition Law protests in June 2019, nor the struggle for democracy that continues now, through the Covid-19 pandemic. To witness your birth city in its greatest moment of need is a powerful, humbling event, and I know I watched Hong Kong

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-Lawso

movies you should see: hiroshima mon amour

Hiroshima, Mon Amour this movie has been on my mind a lot lately, due to the recent events in Japan. when I saw it about a year ago, it easily made an impression on me. easily. it was just so beautiful, in every way thinkable. it follows the story of a French actress and her Japanese architect lover, having a conversation together as they lie in bed. the majority of the film is told in flashbacks of their lives in WWII (the film was made in 1959, so there's a ten year gap there). he was directly affected by the dropping of the atom bomb in Hiroshima; she was ostracized due to her involvement with a German soldier. the reason I was propelled to see it was the song "Burning Hearts" by My Favorite- "I was an architect, she was an actress, I drew the Eiffel Tower upon her dress." (really good song too, by the way! RIP My Favorite). luckily, you can find the movie online. here's a portion of it: I HOPE YOU LIKE READING FILMS it's given credit (so I am
