Kicking myself really hard for not posting more, that’s what I’ve been doing!
It seems like I’m making more coherent, thoughtful and introspective comments around the blogosphere than on my own blog! Sheesh!
Some topics I’ve been mouthing off on and the places I’ve been doing the mouthing off include:
Remembrance of Chainsaws Past @ Soiled Sinema
Books I’ve Been Reading @ Otto Mannix
CAMPATHON, CAMPATHON, we want CAMPATHON! @ She Blogged By Night
Nobody Likes Satan Jr.—except me! (Also @ She Blogged By Night)
Lovecraft's Unhappy Hollywood Adventure @ Dinner With Max Jenke
Ivanlandia joins the Nuclear War @ John Kenneth Muir’s Reflections on Film/TV
More Post-Atomic Vehicular Madness @ John Kenneth Muir’s Reflections on Film/TV
Roger Corman takes a trip to Las Vegas and Sees the Center of the Universe @ Eternal Sunshine of the Logical Mind
Here’s one of the best articles I’ve read in a while—all about the overblown hysteria around meth and the stigmatization of folks who like to have fun….
BTW, I finally caught up with Black Swan—what incredibly loony craziness: great stuff!
If you took Mommy Dearest, William Castle’s Straight-Jacket, De Palma’s Carrie, a dash of Suspiria, a teaspoon of Ken Russell and a pinch of John Waters’ Female Trouble—add a heaping dose of Tchaikovsky, and voilà! Black Swan.
And now for more pictures….ENJOY!

Do you notice how similar those Yip-Yip Martians (just above) are to the bloodsucking parasites from Mars (above the Yip-Yips; from H.G. Wells' classic novel)? Me, too. The "nice" facade they put on during their appearances on Sesame Street are a LIE! They want your blood! "Yip-yip-yip-yip-yip-BLLLLLLLLLOOOOOODDDDDDDDDD!"

This week's "zxy rplkntz" are all sad over the death of super-creative and productive filmmaker Sidney Lumet. While the National Film Board of Ivanlandia did not like all of Mr. Lumet's flicks, we loved enough of them...
