-Well, last night's Raw was a mixed bag for me. The Vince vs. God bits are just another part of the worst feud of the year (so far) in Shawn vs. Vince, narrowly beating out Kane going crazy over May 19th. Come on Kane, you were in a movie that will most likely suck, there's no reason to take it out on other people. I'm sure that people will suffer watching it. That out of the way, we did get the return of Charlie Haas, Edge actually walking off at the end of Raw unhumiliated and winning, and more awesomeness from the Trish vs. Mickie.
-I bought the Unrated version of "Hostel", as well as the 2-disc special editon of "From Dusk Till Dawn".
-To close today's blog, here's a list of Horror movie Sequals that I always thought were underrated, and why.
Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2-the movie that introduced Bill Mosely to an unexpecting world. The funniest performance though, goes to Jim Sidow as Drayton Sawyer, who has one of the funniest lines in horror history when he tries to spell sex, or as he spells it, "S-C-E-X!"
House 2-I actually like this one better than the original. It's got a caterpuppy (just see the movie, you'll know what I'm talking about), a swordfight, a 170 year old cowboy zombie (who says "Ronnie Reagan wouldn't last 5 minutes in the old west) and more.
Beyond Re-Animator-Better than "Bride of Re-Animator", this movie has less lame puns, is funnier, has a re-animated penis duking it out with a re-animated rat, a jawless zombie trying to drink milk, and more. Also has one of the best double entendres in movie history
Howard Philips: That's the way to the hole!
Herbert West: It certainly is.
Creepshow II-The first two segments of this one aren't too much to write home about. The third one however, titled "The Hitch-Hiker", is fucking creepy. Here, a woman runs over a homeless man. However, he comes back...repeatedly.
Return of The Living Dead III-Not as good as the first, but better than the second, this Brian Yuzna directed sequal answers the age old question: what would happen if Romeo and Juliet were a zombie movie? Well, the answer is here. While it does have a few amusing moments (it's hard to hate lines like "Julie, You should quit eating that mans brains!"), this movie plays it all more straight. Also, Mindy Clarke plays Julie. Here, you get to see her tits, and after she becomes a zombie, she turns herself into a human pincushion/weapon. Again, you need to see it to know what I'm talking about.
Well, that's all for now.
-Birthday was alright. Nothing big happened, but nothing bad happened either.
-Tomorrow night, Adult Swim starts showing "Saved By The Bell". The reason this makes me happy is because it pisses people off. These guys love tofuck with their fans, and that's all kinds of awesome. The more pissed off Inuyasha fans there are, the better.
-It seems like Bush will never get rid of Rumsfeld. I know that this isn't a political blog, and I tend not to talk about politics, but I'm starting to wonder what it would take to get to get Rumsfeld fired. Come on, six retired generals want the guy out, yet Bush continues to say he's doing a great job. I swear, Rumsfeld could rape infants on live television, and Bush would continue to talk about how he's "doing a great job". It just amazes me.
-Thanks to everyone who wished me a happy birthday. For some reason, i wished that Leenawould have, but oh well.
that's all for now folks.
Well, today's my birthday. I'm 23 years old. If you didn't wish me a happy birthday here,, then feel free to wish me a happy birthday on my blog.
Anyways, here's a birthday present from me to you.
Things you can learned from TSM poster's
-Not all Insane Clown Posse fans are idiots (Carnival)

-Some people frown upon everything (Czech Republic)
-Hippies suck (kkktookmybabyaway)
-Dancing Corgi Approves (Yours Truly)
-Some theatres pick up awesome movies (niskie)
-Gimmick posters: some rule (Eddie Winslow, Gay Lincoln) but most suck

That's all. Happy Birthday to me!
Well, it looks like RVD will face whoever's champ on ONS. So far, it look's like we have 3 choices. Let's take a look at them, and how well they fit on ONS.
1.) HHH-Let's it folks, this one has a good chance of happening. Right now, I'm actually digging Trips as a cocky, arrogant heel, and he hasn't done any overdone mic time lately. He'll go over fine with the fans as a heel, though I don't see him losing to RVD unfortunately. That out of the way, RVD has kind of soured out on me since his return.
2.) Cena-This would be interesting, though I don't see it happening. In spite of what rumors say, I don't see him turning heel. Kind of a shame though, as he hasn't really been over 100% as a face lately, and would probably make a decent heel, as a heel turn would most likely rejuvinate his career. Plus, imagine the heat he would get at ONS. He's basically everything representing the WWE like it or not, so imagine him in front of rabid ECW fans, especially against RVD. That would be awesome.
3.) Edge-This is the best choice, IMO. The guy's the best heel on Raw, is excellent on the mic, and even has hardcore cred thanks to his hardcore match with Foley. Plua, Lita used to work for ECW, so she could put down the ECE fans along with Edge, and bring up the old days (no, not her old lockeroom activities). Unfortunately, this porobably won't happen, as HHH keeps putting him down, and seems a bit threatened by him to me.
Well, that's it for now.
Well, things are alright I guess. Nothing much going on. Anyways, old Lovecraft was also trying to get into different kinds bands and artists. So far, let's see how this experiment has been so far
.Kinski-Here's a cool little band. They are an instrumental rock band, but not a post rock band. They're kind of an instrument psychedelic rock band, with a bit of an shoegazer influence.
.Pelican-This is pretty sweet. Instrumental metal, with a bit of a post rock thing going for them. I downloaded The Fire In Our Throats Will Beckon The Thaw,and it's great. Also worth checking out is Red Sparrowes, a post rock band with members of Isis and Neurosis.
.Ocean-Man, it's amazing I'm starting to listen to more metal, especially considering that I don't have the best relationship with the genre. Here's a cool doom metal band, with death metal, black metal, and post rock tendancies. To be honest, it was the doom and post rock things that dragged me in.
.Burzum-Really, really sucks. Why this band has a following is beyond me. The production is below sub par, it's really grating, and really boring. Plus, I've known about Varg's criminal history and views for a while, and that doesn't help matters. This is the second time I've given them a listen, and both the metal and the instrumental ambience is dreadful.
.7L and Esoteric-On the Hip Hop side of things, here's a cool little group. I dig the rhymes, as well as the production. Hell, they use xylophones in one of their albums. More albums need those.
.Sixtoo-I've always dug instrumental Hip-Hop, and this is pretty awesome. Plus, Damo Suzuki apppears on the song Storm Clouds & Silver Linings . Good to see he's still around.
Well, that's it for now. Next on my list: Solmania, Ulver, Fad Gadget, Trans Am, and Isotope 217.
-Shit, this has been a boring weekend. I've been stuck with homework, and the only time I get to go out is for dinner. Basically, I've been stuck in my dorm all weekend.
-I've been doing a lot of reading at night, mostly Richard Matheson. I love this guys work, and he's second to H.P. Lovecraft in my favorite horror authors of all time.
-Watched "Cabin Fever" last night. I still love that movie, so fuck the haters. For those of you who do love it, just some advice: You need to watch it more than once. The more you watch it, the more you'll recognize stuff and dialogue you didn't recognize before.
-I really don't have much else to say, so here's some YTMND links For Ya
Interpretation of the David Hasslehoff Song "Du" (I need to download this song some time)

Return of The Retun of The Mack

Return of The Jesus
-First things first: That "mutant baby" picture (it's Czech's new Avatar Picture) scares the fucking shit out of me. That may be one of the scariest things I've seen on the internet, and I've seen some terrifying shit on the internet.
-I can seem to quit listening to the new Ghostface Killah album. It's that damn good. Anyone who enjoys hip hop should give this one a listen. Plus, it doesn't cost very much, and it's got some awesome producers (the late J.Dilla, Pete Rock, MF Doom, Just Blaze). Also, I'm looking forward to the new Current 93 CD (should be out by May or June), the new Aphex Twin CD (out on the 18th. It has the best tracks from last years Analord vinyl series), the new Mono album (a great post-rock band from Japan. It's being produced by Steve Albini), and a re-issue of shoegazer band Chapterhouse's album Whirlpool (complete with bonus tracks from ep's). Also, I might get the new Goldfrapp CD, and the new one from The Sounds (they are a new guilty pleasure for me).
-All of my classes were cancled yesterday. I still got a ton of homework to do.
-A guy in a dorm a few rooms from me keeps playing the three songs over and over again, and it's driving me crazy: Lovers And Friends by Usher w/ Lil' Jon and Ludacris, The Crossroads by Bone Thugs N Harmony, and Love by Keisha Cole. I have to hear these songs for 50 minutes every fucking morning.
-Good God, there been quite a few bannings lately. So far, it seems like fanofcoils, Desperate Housewife, and
Dam(o)n Yankees have been kicked out. So, what does ol' lovecraft think of this? Well, here are my thoughts of the banned offenders, including some long delayed thoughts on someone banned a while back.
.Dam(o)n Yankees-While he did get in a few arguments, and say some stupid things, he really didn't do anything to annoy me. To be honest, I don't see why he was banned, though I would like to know why.
.Desperate Housewife-I can see why. The guy constantly chastized posters in the WWE forums (including yours truely) for complaining in a "fan forum" (which it is not) about the product. I've already said it several times, so I'll say it again: This is the fucking internet. People complain over dumb shit all of the time, and it's nothing new. If you can't take the heat, then step away from the fire.
.fanofcoils-This guy should have been banned the first time he made an idiotic comment. Everyone from Special K, Vitamin X, Slayer, and yours truely couldn't stand the guy. Plus, he was the ultimate troll (read the threads on V for Vendetta and The Hills Have Eyes in the movie forum), derailed threads (as Special K pointed out), and was most likely some past banned poster. Good fucking riddance.
.MikeSC-An oldie to be sure. Wow, were to start. Randomly insulting people. Failing to back up his "facts". Trolling the NWA TNA forums. Turning a "Farenheit 9/11" discussion into a shitstorm (and I didn't even like the damn movie). Calling Islam a "Radical Death Cult". The list just goes on. At least he has his own message board now.
Glad I got all of that off of my chest. Anyways, here's some cool videos from YouTube
-Can performing their song "Paperhouse"
-Video for Cabaret Voltaire's "Sensoria"
-YOU DUMBASS! (I'm one of the few people on Earth who liked this show. Oh Well.)
Today's entry is named after a song from the 60's Garage Rock band Chocolate Watch Band.
-Good news for horror fans. It looks like "Cemetary Man", which I think is the best Italian Zombie Movie ever made, will be released on DVD in June by Anchor Bay. It will come in a widescreen transfer with 5.1 Dolby Surround sound track. Special Features will include a special making of documentary, a directors bio, and trailer. More info can be found here.
-I'm taking a short story writing class right now, and it's all kinds of awesome. I'm currently working on a story for the class called "Jessica", which deals with a zombies that don't actually do anything to harm people(I thought it would be cool to try a story with zombies that don't eat flesh) , a troubled man named Ryasn, and his now zombified wife. I've got about six pages done so far.
-I don't care how many people complain about it, I love that the Spirit Squad are the tag champs. Sure, they have a shitty gimmick (which I will admit I liked at first), but they are pretty good workers. Plus, it's good to see the belts off of Kane and Big Show, though the tag titles are mostly useless at this point.
-Bought the new Ghostface Killah album today. So far, I'm really loving it. Plus, it has J.Dilla (RIP), Pete Rock, Just Blaze, and MF Doom on production, and the entire Wu Tang Clan on the track 9 Milli Bros. I also got Thunder, Lightning, Strike by The Go! Team.
-It seems like tomorrows episode of "South Park" takes a shot on "Family Guy". To be honest, I haven't watched FG in a while. Maybe it's just me, but refrencing 80's pulp culture constantly gets kind of old. Granted, it's not a bad show, I'm just tired of the show, since it's basically a less obnoxious "I Love The 80's"
-Mickie James is the new Women's Champ, and continues to bring on the awesome. Really, how could anyone hate her dressing up just like Trish on Raw last night? Also, great to see Carlito turn face. The guy's really improved lately. On the downside, do we really need Jamal back as the Samoan version of Kamala, only not any fun? Plus, the Shawn vs. Vince feud is still going on. I swear, Vince really hates the fans. What other explanation could there be for this bullshit?
-Finally, I saw the stupidest t-shirt yesterday: it basically said "Keep Arnold From Becoming President in '08". I wanted to tell the guy wearing it that he was an idiot, but I didn't, because I remembered that you can't reason with hippies.
Well, I'm not ordering "Wrestlemania" this year. Other than a few matches, I have little to no interest in the show. Cena vs. HHH is pointless, and you know HHH is going to win. The Triple Threat Match will be good, but the only good thing that could come out of it is Angle winning, which seems pretty unlikely at this point. Boogeyman vs. Booker: Poor Booker. I don't give a shit about the Pillow Fight, and neither do the fans. Then again, when was the last time the WWE did something that made the fans happy? Undertaker vs. Henry is pointless, other than to point out that Undertaker never jobs at Wrestlemania. The tag match doesn't interest me because lets face it, the titles are practically DOA. Edge vs. Mick is just sad. Edge should still be champ right now, is a great heel, and is the most over heel on Raw, yet he gets stuck with this bullshit.
Then there is Shawn vs. Vince. This is the worst feud of the year so far. There is no point to it other than to stroke Vince's ego, and there is no real hook to the match, other than "Vince is an Evil Asshole", which got tired a long time ago. Hopefully, after tomorrow night, the whole feud will be over, but at this point, I doubt it.
I was going to post a review for "Slither", but I changed my mind. I will say that it was awesome, and the most fun I've had in a theatre in ages.
-Well, my week of Spring Break is over. Some spent there spring break in Cancun. My Sister spent hers in South Carolina. Me? I spent it visiting my parents. Nothing special.
-Anyways, I've noticed that everywhere I go these days, there's a magazine with Ashlee Simpson on The cover. My question is, why? Really, why is she on so many magazine covers? Is she still popular?
-There's some neat little movies coming out tomorrow on DVD. The one I am most interested in for some reason, is "Shadow: Dead Riot". This does not look like a good movie per say, but it looks more like a movie that is so bad it will be great. Plus, it's a zombie movie, a martial arts movie, and a women in prison movie all in one.
-I hope everyone who has read it enjoyed the review of Tobe Hooper's "Mortuary" that I posted on my blog.
-Finally, I hope Carnival and Lushus have a good time at Raw tonight. Granted, Raw has sucked it hard for a while now, but I still hope they have fun.
It's hard to believe that the man who directed films such as Polergeist has had such a hit and miss career. For every Texas Chainsaw Massacre, there is a Mangler. For every Funhouse, there's a Crocodile. His latest movie, Mortuary (which just aired on Sci Fi, and hits DVD on April 18th.) isn't exactly a miss, but it's not a hit either.
The movie tells the tale of the Boyle family (which includes Denise Crosby from Pet Cemetary and Dan Byrd from the recent remake of The Hills Have Eyes), who move into an house in Arkham, Mass. Yes, this movie is heavily influenced by HP Lovecraft. That out of the way, the home is also a Mortuary, and of course, since it's a Mortuary in Arkham, only bad can come outt of it.
Anyways, the son get's a job at a diner, and makes some friends (including Alexandra Adi from Slap Her, She's French and Tequila Body Shots, and Rocky Marquette from Shallow Ground). They tell him about the legend of Bobby Fowler, a strange boy who murdered his parents at age eight and is rumored to live in the cemetary, which conveniently, is in the back yard of our Teenage hero's house.
Needless to say, it turns out that Bobby Fowler is real (and a bizzare, uneven mix of HP Lovecraft, the monster from Stuart Gordon's Castle Freak (which was inspired by a Lovecraft story) and Lucio Fulci's House By The Cemetary). Oh, and there's a strange fungus that possesses people, and brings the dead back to life. As well as a Lovecraftian creature who controls the fungus/slime. Oh, and the zombies can only be killed by salt. So, does it work?
Well, yes and no. On the plus side, Crosby, Byrd, and Marquette do good jobs at their roles. The make up effects are well done, and the Lovecraftian overtones and references don't hurt a bit at all. However, there are problems. The first being the rather lame CGI effects. Another problem is that the other performances are uneven. The biggest problem however, is the general tone. At one minute, it seems like the movie wants to be a creepy gothic horror story and tribute to Lovecraft, then in the next minute, it wants to be a tongue in cheek romp. The two style generally don't work, and the attempts at humor are pretty lousy. Plus, don't expect a gorefest, Sure, there's a torn out heat, black fungus vomit, and some blood, but no major gore. Then again, several of Hooper's films aren't that gory (or even gory at all) to begin with.
All in all, the best way to describe Mortuary would have to be uneven. I'll give it 5/10, since it's definately different, and it's never boring. However, it's not really good either, though it's not Hooper's worst movie.
Last nights episode of "South Park" was excellent. I basically have a feeling that the creators are done ripping on Scientology (which for now on will be known as Super Adventure Club, starting...now), which is ok. Plus, you can tell that they really are going to miss Isaac, though I hear he still performs "Salty Chocolate Balls" live.
Randy Orton changed his theme song briefly I hear. I don't watch Smackdown, so I really wouldn't know. At least he doesn't have Nickleback as his theme music.
It's official, I love the Mickie vs. Trish feud. Mickie is a decent worker, pulls off the psycho stalker character well, and is a diva who actually gets heel heat. Plus, the feud makes sense, and isn't being forced down our throats like the other feuds on Raw. Of course, WWE will find a way to fuck it up, but for now, I'm happy.
I still don't get the point of the Shawns vs. Vince feud. So far, it seems like it's because Vince for some reason wants Shawn to go back to his hard partying days, and that Shawn wants Vince to get over the Montreal incident. I'm sorry, but that doesn't make a good feud. It's just Vince playing the Mr. McMahon character that got old years ago.
Last nights season finale of The Shield kicked my ass in all kinds of ways. I was silent for a long time, thinking to myself "Shane, you Mother Fucker". It took Bush messing up counting to three on Letterman to snap out of it.
Well, I finished off listening to the CD's I recently bought. Here's my Quick thoughts.
Massive Attack-Blue Lines-Great Stuff. It's not as good as Mezzanine (aka the greatest Trip-Hop album ever recorded) but it's still great. There's a bit of a hip hop feeling to it, which i really like.
Richie Hawtin-Decks, EFX, and 909-This is awesome. A continuous mix of minimal techno, with repetative beats and rhythms, all seemlessly put together for a great listening experience. One of the Best DJ Mix CD's I've ever heard, slightly beaten out by Coldcut's 70 Minutes of Madness.
Finally, it seems like I might be a member of Clique B in the Hardcore discussion. So, If I'm in Clique B, and Czech isn't, then what does that make Leena?
I listened to two of the four CD's I bought yesterday. My Thoughts:
Can-Ege Bamyasi I don't like it as much as Tago Mago (The weird chanting/yelling in the song Soup gets annoying) but it's still awesome. This is the second album from Can I've bought, so maybe I'll buy either Future Days or Soon over Bambaala next.
Butthole Surfers-Psychic...Powerless...Another Man's Sac- I said it in the music board earlier, and I'll say it again: This is probably the funniest album they did. It's also the most punk rock sounding of their albums that I've heard. It's not as good as Locus Abortuon Technician or Rembrandt Pussyhorse, but it's still awesome.
Up next in my listening list is Massive Attack's Blue Lines and Richie Hawtin's Decks, EFX, and 909.
Well, it seems like the "Snakes on a Plane" teaser might be a fake. I hope not.
In more important thoughts, my best guess is that either Czech or Carnival will win the TSM Poster's Tournament. I'm still suprised that I made it to round two. Plus, it's kind of an honor to lose to Niskie, as he's an awesome poster.
I bought Can's Ege Bamyasi, Massive Attacks's Blue Lines, Butthole Surfers's Psychic...Powerless...Another Man's Sac, and Richie Hawtin's Decks, EFX, and 909. I'll get to listening to all of them by the end of the weekend. Also, I listened to Music To Make Love To Your Old Lady By from Lovage today. My second listening, and it's alot better than I remembered it was.
First of All, I saw the remake of "The Hills Have Eyes" last night. For the most part I enjoyed it, but I still like the original more. Also, as his second film, I'd have to say that Alexandre Aja's first film "High Tension" is better. Still, it's pretty good, and much better than most remakes.
Second of all, I would have to say this: Tina Fey is not funny.
Finally, to everyone who voted for me in round one of the TSM poster's tournoment, I say thank you. I don't expect to win round two, but I'm happy that I made as far as round two.
Anyways, I've been incredibly busy lately. Finals are this week.
Now, on with other things.
-Last Thursday, while I was leaving class, I saw something that plagues every college campus: Hippies. They were pretty much standing around, holding signs with big "I'm Pro-Life" and "Fuck Bush" written on them, one of them had a megaphone and was shouting all kinds of things like "Bush is a Shitty President" and basically being obnoxious hippies who refuse to make anything out of themselves or the opportunities given to them because they are too busy being jackasses and "Fighting The Man". I was tempted to come up to them and say something to piss them off-I mean come on, it's not lke they will gang up on me and beat me up-but I didn't. I wish I did though. Later on that day, I told one of my friends about this, and she pretty much defended them.
Anyways, here's my point: I'm very Anti-Bush. I'm not exactly a big fan of the war in Iraq. At the same time though, I really fucking hate hippies. I'm sorry hippies, but why do you continue to "Fight For The Cause"? I'm not happy with Bush either, but I don't go around annoying people because of it. Plus, hippies are utterly clueless. They don't seem to realize how the real world works. Sure, I have no problem with anyone who skips class, but if your going to do it so you can shout out lame slogans and such, then I'm sorry, but you suck. Get a steady job. Attend your classes. Hell, you are in college. You are being given the perfect opportunity to make something usefull out of yourselves. To actually contribute something to society and become something. Hell, right now, you have the fucking luxery of delaying entrance into the real world for a good four to five years. And how do you this: By conforming to every lame "Down With The Elite" stereotype imaginable.
Guess what hippies? You are a part of the "elite". You are a part of society. Sure, you don't contribute to anything like actually getting an education or going to work, but you are still a part of society. You are all conformists. Hell, everyone is a conformist, and you know what? It's great. Being a conformist is actually fucking awesome in reality. For now though, you don't realize that. You are to busy wearing your Che Guevara T-Shirts and smoking your joints to realize that you are utter failures.
Ok, I'm done ranting.
That out of the way, one more thing I've noticed: Though they preach racial equality, all hippies seem to be white. I'm a white guy myself, but It just further confirms my belief that the majority of idiots in America are white.
This post has nothing to do with the late Russell Jones. It would be much better if it was though.
To Czech: I'm disappointed that you haven't said anything insulting about me the the Hardcore Discussion, though seeing you sanity slowly melt away is amusing. I guess you haven't said much about me because I rarely post in Hardcore Discussion, and because I'm a non-confrontational pussy.
Anyways, got the original novel version of "Carnosaur" in the mail. The book's much better than the movie, though the movie remains a guilty pleasure of mine.
Man, only one response? I must have the most boring blog in this place.
Anyways, I'm mostly posting today out of boredom. So, here's a list I made up, out of boredom.
8 things in music, and things about music fans, that annoy me.
1.) Bands who do entire albums either without a title, or without a song title. Really, it's the most pretentious thing on Earth. Examples of artists who have done this include Sigur Ros, Merzbow, and Farmers Manual. While I like Merzbow and Sigur Ros, I still find this annoying.
2.) People who constantly go on about what Punk was about back in the day. You wanna know something? Nobody will ever really know what punk was about, because it was about a lot of things. It wasn't about just one single thing.
3.) People who complain about Hip Hop. This usually comes from 1.) Classic Rock and Prog Rock fans, 2.) Jazz Snobs, and 3.) Racist Halfwits. Basically, the same kind of people who will debate Pink Floyd (who I love) or John Coltrane (not a diss on Coltrane, since I also love his work), but are either too boring, or too self important to recognize something different and innovative now and then. Just remember this rock snobs: You may badmouth someone like Acelyone, but remember that there was a time when the bands you loved were dismissed.
4.) Ridiculously long album titles. This is very common in the world of Post Rock (i.e. A Silver MT. Zion, GYBE!). While I do enjoy Post Rock, this really gets on my nerves.
5.) Tool fans. Most of the Tool fans I've encountered are incredibly boring pseudo-intellecualist pricks. Also, most ICP fans I've encountered are complete retards. Carnival is probably the only ICP fan I've discovered on the net who doesn't annoy me.
6.) Frank Zappa fans. Not really a complaint, but more of an observation: On every message board on the internet, there is someone who go on and on about Frank Zappas brilliance. Again, not a diss or complaint, just an observation.
7.) People who dismiss Pitchfork, but embrace other pretentious, scenester music websites. Sure, I think Pitchfork sucks, but people wh go on about why it sucks, but then embrace an equally pretentious webpage like Brainwashed are basically like the pot calling the kettle black.
8.) People who call you an idiot for liking a certain band. It seems like your not allowed to like bands like The Killers these days, because if you do, you'll have somebody call you an idiot, or go on a pointless rant (much like this one) about why they think that band sucks. Well, sorry that I haven't praised whatever new Sufjan Stevens album has come out, but there are bands that I can't bring myself to hate, so shove it hipsters.
Well, that's all I have to say.
Anyways, been a while.
So far, Wrestlemania looks like it will be shit. Normally, I order it evey year, so this looks like the first time I won't be ordering one. Here is a list of things that are most likely better than Wrestlemania will be:
Metallica's "St. Anger"
Date Movie (that's right, fucking Date Movie looks better than Wrestlemania.)
A movie from Uwe Boll
See No Evil (I've seen the poster for it online. It has a new shitty tagline: "Evil Gets Raw")
A porno from Rob Black
A post from Desperate Housewife
Goldberg vs. Lesner
Getting a tattoo that says something retarded
Feel free to add to the list.
Also, I really dig Venetian Snares. Nothing else to add, I just really dig the guys work.
Well, The Stealers won the Superbowl last night. I was sort of wishing Seattle would win, just because all of the Stealers love was getting on my nerves. Also, my sister called me last night, and told me that my dad hates them. Oh well.
Anyways, the pregame show (with Stevie Wonder) was alright. The halftime show sucked though. That was probably the most overblown performance of "Satisfaction" I've ever seen. As for comercials, the FedEx commercial with the Cavemen was the best, while the Diet Pepsi commercials were the worst.
Gotta go. Have some homework to fiinish.
Well first off, I take it back: I don't like the spirit squad anymore. Granted, I liked it at first, but the novelty has worn off pretty quick. I guess it's because it's now expected, and not so weird anymore.
Second, the season finale of Masters of Horror last Friday, called "Haeckle's Tale", was disappointing. It started out great, but as it progressed, it became just another zombie story, and really fell apart with it's "Tales from the Crypt" style ending. Oh well, at least there's next season. Anyways, here's my ratings for episodes, 1 being best, and 12 being worst.
1.) Cigarette Burns (directed by John Carpenter)
2.) Fair Haired Child (directed by William Malone)
3.) The Deer Woman (directed by John Landis)
4.) Homecoming (directed by Joe Dante)
5.) Incident on and off a Mountain Road (directed by Don Coscarelli)
6.) Jennifer (directed by Dario Argento)
7.) Dance of the Dead (directed by Tobe Hooper)
8.) Sick Girl (directed by Lucky McKee)
9.) Pick Me Up (directed by Larry Cohen)
10.) Chocolate (directed by Mick Garris)
11.) Haeckel's Tale (directed by John McNaughton)
12.) Dreams in the Witch House (directed by Stuart Gordon)
Anyone else but me watch the series, because I'm the only person here who seemed to talk about it.
