Dracula Uses Wolverine’s Blood as Nitrous

You all get the reference from the headline, right? I’m not a gearhead, not even remotely, but even I know what nitrous is, and how it is used in car racing. You install a nitrous oxide kit to your car, and when you hit the gas—the nitrous oxide, not the gasoline—it’s like when Michael Knight…Continue readingDracula Uses Wolverine’s Blood as Nitrous

Killing THE WALKING DEAD?

“What finally killed THE WALKING DEAD?” asks this linked article. Silly, silly article writer. Nothing can kill THE WALKING DEAD. It will never go away. Even as the announcement has been made that the next season will be the last, there are reports of a spinoff series featuring Norman Reedus’s and Melissa McBride’s characters, plus…Continue readingKilling THE WALKING DEAD?

A Storm of Bats

Watch this cool video of a developing pattern on radar, a phenomenon in the skies over Phoenix, Arizona. It wasn’t a weather pattern that officials with the National Weather Service captured on their screens, though. It was a flock of bats. (Are they called “flocks” when it’s bats you’re dealing with? I think flocking is…Continue readingA Storm of Bats

More Mummies

It seems every day recently has brought news of a new discovery in Egypt of the mummy variety. This past week, Khaled al-Anani, the Egyptian Minister of Tourism and Antiquities, announced the discovery of 14 wooden sarcophaguses at the necropolis of Saqqara. These sarcophagi date to 2500 years ago. The week before that, archaeologists had…Continue readingMore Mummies

Credit Curtis’s Ego

It used to be standard practice for networks to reuse the tapes they used to record their programs. I don’t know how it’s done today; doubtless everything is different, what with it all being digital and such. Back in the earlier days of television, though, such taping over of programs was the norm, and this…Continue readingCredit Curtis’s Ego

Keanu Gets Cool

When did this happen? It slipped right past me. Keanu Reeves was the worst successful actor in Hollywood. I amend that with the word “successful” because there are plenty who are worse, but none of those feebs has achieved anything close to his level of success. And it’s not like mine is a singular opinion.…Continue readingKeanu Gets Cool

The Macabre Dime Museum – Worth So Much More

As I was going to be on the road, passing through Augusta, Georgia, on my way to visit with the Lizardman of Bishopsville, South Carolina, and as I learned about the existence of the Pexcho’s American Dime Museum, I knew I had to make it a point to drop by. The proprietors are, during this…Continue readingThe Macabre Dime Museum – Worth So Much More

Resurrection Springs

Back during the Revolutionary War, some British soldiers were badly wounded in a battle with those lousy American traitors. Unable to travel and soon to die, they were left behind by their commanding officer, along with some other men ordered to stay with them until they died and then to bury them. Before the soldiers…Continue readingResurrection Springs

Movie Review: THE VANISHING ON SEVENTH STREET

Poor Hayden Christensen. It really is a shame that those prequels (you know the ones of which I speak; in the years since the franchise has been resurrected by the new trilogy, I refuse to even list the prequels as part of the continuity) were so lousy that they derailed his career. The guy actually…Continue readingMovie Review: THE VANISHING ON SEVENTH STREET

Revisiting the Classics: FIRESTARTER

Stephen King considers this one of the worst movies ever based on his work. I wonder if he’s seen them all, as there are some that are far worse. Um, SLEEPWALKERS, Steve? At least that one was fun, though. Same with MAXIMUM OVERDRIVE. But then we have movies like GRAVEYARD SHIFT, DREAMCATCHER, and (gods help…Continue readingRevisiting the Classics: FIRESTARTER

Movie Review: YOU SHOULD HAVE LEFT

This one has parallels to another Horror flick from earlier this summer, RELIC, in that it features a house that tends to “change” when its residents aren’t looking. There are hints of the real-life Winchester Mansion in there, too. And if Kevin Bacon does end up playing Freddy Krueger, as those persistent rumors claim is…Continue readingMovie Review: YOU SHOULD HAVE LEFT

THE CHOSEN Part Three: A STUDY GUIDE TO THE RIDDLE OF THE SPHINX Chapter Two

Brian awoke to the earliest hint of sunrise, a faint milky light that seemed to pursue the car as they had earlier chased the setting sun, driving due west. He and Dave had driven nonstop, swapping out and stopping only long enough to fuel up and buy junk food. They’d kept to the Interstate, gambling…Continue readingTHE CHOSEN Part Three: A STUDY GUIDE TO THE RIDDLE OF THE SPHINX Chapter Two
