"Go away I havn't got time for the living."

Thoughts on Cemetery Man.

Flaming blue marshmallow fairies. Seriously.
Rupert Everett is sexy, this of course is nothing new.
Film is very pretty. Even the deaths, which are creative, are almost graceful.
Gorgeous woman with a real body is a nice change. Yay for foreign films.
Creepy bald uncle fester/igor type dude.
Glass coffin ala Snow White even though she looks more like bride of Frankenstein.
Zombie riding a motorcycle.
Walking head without legs?!
Pro-active zombie killings.
Camera guy with amazing chops.
Eunuch shots. Still better than his original plan. ahhh true love.
I must talk to you = Let's make out while the camera revolves around us.
Previously mentioned gorgeous woman not so gorgeous now.
How the fuck do people talk with cigarettes in their mouths?
Nun head-shot.
Not nearly enough VW bugs in movies, especially ones with coffins strapped to the top.
Sort of a romantic horror with a bit of comedy in it.

2009 Scream Awards/Fall TV Season

Voting for the 2009 Scream Awards started recently. For those of you not familiar with the Scream Awards they're kind of like the Oscars for Horror, Sci-Fi, Fantasy and Comic Books. Of course they're not quite as important as the Oscars but at least Spike awards things I actually enjoy. I'm kind of surprised the Supernatural was completely ignored though. IMHO it should have been included in Best TV Show and Best Ensemble, hell Jim Beaver should have been included for Supporting Actor as well. Bobby is awesome. I also think they overlooked a ton of amazing comic artists but at least they didn't include Greg Land right? Anywho, one inclusion that did make me extremely happy was Eden Lake in the category for Best Foreign Film. I won't go into how much I love this movie again you can scroll down for that. ;-p

Just a quick bit on the upcoming Fall TV Season. I really wish I could smack the CW and Fox upside their heads for scheduling Supernatural and Fringe at the same freaking time!! Didn't it occur to them that maybe these shows share a lot of the same fan base? Not everyone can afford DVRs so someones ratings are going to take a hit cause of their poor planning. I adore both shows and have yet to decide which I'm going to watch on TV and which gets regulated to reruns. Probably Fringe but since I have no intention of watching Vampire Diaries it would certainly be easier to just keep it on Fox for the evening since Fringe follows Bones another of my favorite shows. Looks like Smallville has been demoted to Fridays which isn't that surprising really. I still laugh everytime I read about it getting a spin-off. Maybe they should focus on making Smallville consistently good before they do that. Like maybe bringing back Lex? Pretty pretty please.

More Maniacs...........

2001 Maniacs : Beverly Hellbillies just finished shooting. Some of the cast is back but Robert England has been replaced by Bill Moseley, which I'm sure will be great. They released a press release which you can read on their Facebook page. I havn't seen a release date yet but I'm so freaking excited for this movie!!!

2001 Maniacs

Mega short post cause beer and blogging is bad.
2001 Maniacs. I love this movie in all it's cheesy goodness. It's right up there with Slither for me. Anything involving Nathan Fillion and James Gunn makes me a very happy girl. Anyways, just found out there was a comic for it. It will be mine, oh yes, it will be mine.

Eden Lake - *jaw dropping*-

Some time ago I won a copy of Eden Lake from Freddy in Space (my favorite horror blog) and having two months off after my recent surgeries I had some time to watch it finally. As much as I love horror movies I am also a complete chicken and can't watch really good ones alone at night since I live in an old noisy apartment building and have an overactive imagination. Normal people hear a noise and realize it's the pipes or neighbors using the bathroom. I hear that noise and become convinced that there's someone in the ceiling about to do horrible things to me and my corpse. Yeah, I'm weird.

Anyways, back on topic.... Eden Lake is about a couple who stay out in the wilderness for a weekend and the everything that happens to these poor people while they are there. It's vaguely in the vein of Last House on the Left but not really, that's just the best comparison I could come up with. I love this movie!!! It's the first movie where I have done absolutely nothing but watch, I have a very hard time sitting still and only doing one thing so this is saying alot. (At the moment I'm blogging, on facebook and watching Burn Notice.) I think what I loved the most about Eden Lake is that it is so utterly realistic. The teens in the movie actually look and act like the ones you see hanging out in the mall not like the belong on Gossip Girl. And everyone in this movie can act!! I want to say more but I don't want to give anything away about it but I think that if I wasn't shocked by the actions of some of the characters I probably would have cried. It's one of those movies that leaves you sitting staring at the screen in a state of disbelief. Amazing.

Needless to say, if you like horror or suspense movies you NEED to watch Eden Lake. Watch it, rent it, borrow it, etc.

Fright Night, Dexter, bleh.........

So on my almost 2 month doctor ordered vacation from work I rediscovered my local library. Since I havn't had a paycheck in a while it's a nice free (or very cheap) place to waste time. Started reading the Dresden Files & Anita Blake series & got totally addicted. The Anita Blake comics suck ass but at least the Dresden ones are decent. Speaking of comics, since I need to eat & have a place to live I have been unable to pick up my books for the past 2 months. Fucking sucks. I've got an extra 30$ so I'm going to & pick up Uncanny, Fables & GL sometime this weekend. Everyhing else will have to wait. Speaking of Green Lantern, I really like Ryan Reynolds as Hal Jordan, I think Bradley Cooper could have been better but I'm not complaining.
Also thanks to my awesome library I finally got to watch Dexter. OMG I finally understand how people can be so into it. It;s fucking amazing!!! I'm 2 episodes into to season 2 at the moment, will probably watch episode 3 after Fright Night is over. Still have to watch the Strangers & Eden Lake. The latter which I won from my favorite horror site Freddy in Space.

I'm a big nerd!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Been playing a ton of games lately cause my life if just sooo full of excitement lately. :-p Restarted City of Heroes/Villains again which is fun as usual but I spend more time creating characters than I do playing them. I always seems to have a problem with alts in any game I play. Also started playing Free Realms, which for being a game geared to kids is pretty damn entertaining. Mini games and pirates puppies are fun! Can't remember how exactly I came across Champions Online but I remember reading about it ages & ages ago. It looks pretty damn cool, as similar to CoX as it may be. Applied to the beta so cross your fingers for me please!!

You are pure evil, and hate personified. You don't care anything about your fellow man, and are guided only by your desire to rule over your inferiors, i.e. everybody but you. 'Mercy,' you ask, prior to grinding an enemy beneath your mighty heel, 'What is mercy?'

Take the quiz!

WTF DC?!?!

Just like tons of other people the currently fucked up economy has had a negative effect on my financial situation. I don't have the excess money to spend on non-essentials like I used to so it pisses me off even more when that money gets wasted. I've seriously cut back on my pull list & I'm irritated enough to start cutting back even more now.
I don't like being forced to pay for comics I don't want. With DC putting that stupid Power Girl story into every comic I picked up is really freaking annoying! Why not use the space to extend the story of the comic I actually wanted to read? If I cared about Power Girl & her mammoth chesticles I'd read JSA but I don't. Nothing annoys me more than to be excited about the length of a comic I spent my dwindling funds on only to find out that half the book is an Advertisement!?!?!?! Is this DCs version of not rasing their prices?
Oh yeah, picked up the new Flash book & thought it was great (other than the infomercial). Only thing that is still bugging me is Barry Allen's magic shirt. While he is in the Flash mueseum with Hal Jordan his shirt changes from white to red. Honestly, if the pages hadn't been facing each other I probably wouldn't have noticed. I'm just being irritable I guess.

For the first time in a long time I loved an X-Men comic. Uncanny X-Men #508 made me a very very happy girl. Next issue has Psylocke on the cover & I am so looking forward to it that it's a little sad.

3) Write six random things about yourself.
4) Tag six people at the end of yer post and link to them
5) Let each of the six persons know they've been tagged and leave a comment on their blog.

Here it goes, try to contain your excitement. ;-)
1. I hoard pop rocks. It's a sick, strange addiction that netted me 64 packs on my birthday alone.

2. I spent one horrible weekend as a model at a Comic Book Convention before being fired cause I wouldn't sleep with the married piece of shit artist. I will not say who he or the company was because they both crashed & burned a long long time ago.

3. The music on my laptop consists of only country & black metal.

4. Vampires are cool but Zombies are a billion times better & they don't fucking sparkle.

5. Avocados are gross & so is guacamole.

6. I would totally be a Sith Lord if I could.

Since I'm lame & don't really comment on any blogs other then the one mentioned above I'm just going to list some blogs/sites that I regularly lurk at.

not dead

I havn't fallen off the face of the earth just broke as hell & don't have anyone to borrow internet from. Be back soon!

p.s. WTF is with Huntress's outfit? She looks like all those "bad girls" that were so popular in comics like 10 years ago. Horrible.

I do not fear hell for I work in retail

As you can ascertain from the title above I work in retail but not in sales, my job is all behind the scenes. So lucky me I get to wear a uniform of sorts that identifies where I work. (I promise this is going somewhere.) I've been a little under the weather for the last couple weeks so I finally decided to go the doctor & left from work for the appointment. After a fairly brief wait I get into the room with the nurse & take off my coat so she can her thing. Upon seeing my work shirt she asks if I worked at the one down the street. I reply no, I don't work in just one store I travel but I was in that store today. The lovely nurse then proceeds to unload how much she hates that store, why she hates that store and what she thinks of it's employees. Um ok.... where did I say that I owned the store or had any type of power? I'm sick as hell can I please just see the doctor & be on my way? Why do people assume that if you work retail your only job is to kiss their ass? I hate the fact that I normally have to wait anywhere from 1 to 2 hours in the waiting room for my appointment but do I bitch & moan to you about it? I once had bad food from McDonald's but does that meant that I complain about to every single McDonald's about it?? No! ARGH!!!! Just because I work in retail doesn't mean that I'm less of a person than you.

Speaking of retail, my favorite comic guy at the comic shop moved away this week. It's weird how someone you think has such a small part of your life can make such an impact by not being there. I no longer have someone that gets as excited as I do by seeing minor characters resurface. No one to talk fables/jack of fables with. I switched to my current store after being helped by him one time. He is awesome & never recommended a comic I didn't like. Sadness. I will miss him. :-(

Havn't really been all that excited by the last couple weeks of comics. Random thoughts on them - I am really liking Guardians of the Galaxy. Couldn't they find a better person for Osbornes Avengers to fight? The Polaris cover is hot but let her kick more ass please. When is the next Old Man Logan coming out?!?!?! Getting impatient over here.

What color lantern are you?

You belong to Agent Orange now. He can use a corrupt, greedy creature such as you. You want power? You will have more than you have ever imagined with an orange ring. Survival is the only rule in the universe.

Found this quiz on This is what I hate you! Awesome site, go now.

Le Sigh (Heroes Rant)

The only character that i loathe more than Lana Lang is Tracey/Niki/Jessica on Heroes. When Niki/Jessica was killed last season I was a very happy girl only to find out that there's another one. Sigh. There are so many interesting female characters on this show to waste time with this loser. And what the hell happened to her kid by the way??!?! Charlie, sweet, funny, interesting & dead. Elle also wonderful & dead. Daphne was awesome, really liked her. Smart, funny, distinctive so of course they had to kill her off. Bastards. Whatever happened to Micah's cousin? She seemed to have a brain in her head. Heroes started off this season really nicely only to slowly decline ever since. I mean the "OMG there's a girl in the comic store" bullshit just pissed me off. As a female I've dealt with assholes like that & it just makes me angry. Having breasts doesn't make us stupid. It seems to work the opposite way in fact. But anyways, I'm not going to get into that can of worms I'll be here all night. In closing I'll say Sylar is the best thing on this show & he needs to dump the little buddy tagging along. He adds nothing.

p.s. Claire you have regenerative powers, try regrowing your backbone.

Jesus on a tortilla

aka Thursday night television

Finally the cape!!! My favorite things about this episode were Oliver Queen (yum) and no Lana!!! Yippee. It seems like they're trying to turn Ollie into Tony Stark, party boy alkie, is this how he is in comics? I'll be the first to admit that I'm new to DC and the little I know about Green Arrow is from the Canary/Arrow Wedding comics. Yes, I bought them, I'm a girl deal with it. :-p I really need to bone up on the past seasons of Smallville. Holy fuck Chloe just killed the mind reader guy!!!

Now a break for Supernatural. I love this show more than pop rocks. Speaking of candy it's the Halloween episode which I have not seen. Stupid job.
Die cheerleader!!! or not. (Guess who wasn't popular in high school??)
Who the hell trick or treats at a motel!??!!!!
How does Dean get better in every episode? Oh wait, probably cause he's not real. Sigh.
I miss the original Ruby.
Some people just need to die. Kind of like natural selection.
Fuck yes ZOMBIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have waited so long for this moment. Aw I can't tell if they're fast or slow ones. boo.
Am I the only one who yells at their tv? I can't be. I know people yell at the screen at some movies (part of what made My Bloody Valentine so great) so I can't be the only weirdo.

Shoat no more!!

Been spending too much time on PMOG lately. Nifty little game that runs in your browser but only if you have Firefox though, sorry IE users. It's lead to my discovery of a lot of cool new sites through the missions and portals. Mining and crates are fun!

No new comics this week I'm broke as joke. :-(

No more dead bodies for daddy tonight.

So I'm all settled in for my romantic valentines evening with Planet Terror and the Dark Crystal. If that doesn't scream romance I don't know what does. Says an awful lot for my social life doesn't it? Anywhoo, still working on reading all my comic from the last two weeks. Came to about $75 so much for cutting back. Wasn't planning on picking up the Neil Gaiman Batman, against the comic guys reccomendation, but it ended up in my pile anyways. Thank goodness I did. Best of bunch so far, reminds me a lot of the end of the Sandman run. A-mazing!! Just discovered how much raspberry frozen yogurt looks like zombie blood/innards. Ick.

Shame on you

How dare you entice me with Hal Jordan & leave me with Guy Gardener?! It's just plain mean. This weeks Brave & the Bold was no were near as good as last weeks.
Aqua Man > Green Lanterns.
I can't believe I just typed that.

Surely Batman never cries.

I love this cartoon, it reminds me of Batman The Animated Series. The one that brought about the creation of Harley Quinn. (Love her.) This week Batman isn't really teaming up with anyone cause he got toxic puke in his face and as a result is ill and has purple bumps (pimples?) all over him. Aquaman and the Atom shrink and go on an adventure in Batman's internals. I'd just like to interject that this show has increased my desire to one day own the Batmobile. It's also a voice activated submarine! How awesome is that?!??! I'll go back on topic and end with the following.
Aqua Man is muscle bound asshole......and I love him.

p.s. Next week Batman teams up with Green Lantern. HELL YES!!!!!!!!!!!!

Smallville Thoughts

Lana Lang please go away. I heard that you had left the series which neutralized the fact that Lex was also leaving. Lex is awesome. You are a whiny self-centered annoying little twit. Stop ruining this season.

p.s. You're not Chun Li either. Much too skinny.

Millar + McNiven = Pure Awesomeness

I read too many comic books, waaayyyyy to many, I'm actually looking to weed a few out. Here's a brief list of my monthly books:
  • X-Factor
  • Green Lantern
  • Green Lantern Corps
  • Runaways
  • Avengers Initiative
  • New Avengers
  • Mighty Avengers
  • X-Men Legacy
  • Young X-Men
  • New Warriors
  • Deadpool
  • Teen Titans
  • JLA
  • Terror Titans
  • Ultimate X-Men
  • Astonishing X-Men
  • Fables
  • Jack of Fables
  • Titans
  • Uncanny X-Men
  • Star Wars Legacy
  • Supernatural (Whenever it's out.)
  • Dresden Files
  • Kick Ass
  • X-Men - Kingbreaker (Finally some acknowledgement of Polaris & Havok abandoned in space.)
  • Young Avengers
  • Spider-Woman
  • Dark Avengers
There's also several crossovers (for lack of a better word) that the wonderful guys at the comic store hold all related for me.

  • Final Crisis
  • War of Kings
  • Dark Reign
As you can see there is way too damn many books so I'm trying to cut them back to a more reasonable amount. I did away with New Exiles months ago, Umbrella Academy was just removed from the list this week but I'm still looking to remove a couple more. New Warriors I'm looking at you. Anywhoo my plans to remove more books was evilly foiled when I attended the last comic chat and Mark Millar the blame rests solely on your shoulders.

I kept hearing how great the Old Man Logan run was, even read the first issue and liked it but didn't want to add another comic to my pull. The owner of the store was reading the most recent issue and after seeing the expressions on his face I was sold. Picture a 5 yr old getting that pony that she's asking for, only this was a grown man who was just reading a comic. My normal steely resolve weakened I picked up that issue and the 2 issues before it. Read it first thing when I got home and OH MY FREAKING GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

*Spoilers Ahead*

Amazing comic!!!! I've been loving the the Green Lantern but Old Man blew it out of the water. The whole time I'm reading I'm trying to imagine what could be so horrible that it'd cause Wolverine to refuse to fight again. Damn Mark!! You totally topped all the horrible scenarios I had running though my head. Maybe I'm just being a girl but I teared up a little. Seriously. I still can't get the picture Wolverine holding the dead Jubilee and the horrorific corpses of the other X-Men out of my head. I can't think of a more horrible thing to do to a person, it's devastating. I know that it's going to one of the comic moments that stick in my mind forever. Kind of like when Colossus injected himself with the Legacy Virus when Illyana died. Amazing. Even more amazing is that they (Mark Millar & Steve McNiven) were able to top it.
Can you say Venom T-Rex? I knew you could.

I cannot wait til the next issue. Well done sir, well done.
