I fucking love Zombie movies…

I make no bones about it, I love movies with Zombies.

I’ll watch anything with Zombies and I’m about to start reading The Zombie Survival Guide by Max Brooks.

Imagine my surprise when I saw this poster today…

Fido

I did a quick search on the internets and found out that this movie is being released on June 15th and I WILL be there.

For now, you can check out the site…

Fido!

Tonight, I’m going to delve into my new DVD purchases, Children of Men (which I believe I have a write up in some of my previous posts) and David Cronenberg’s masterpiece A History Of Violence.

And remember, next week is GRINDHOUSE. If there are any theaters around me doing a midnight showing, you can bet your ass that I’m there!!

Trim Swinger…

Tim Singer Photo by Robby Redcheeks

Tim Singer is a great vocalist. Since the first time I heard Deadguy some 10 years ago, I definitely have followed his output.

Through Kiss It Goodbye and the overnight coming and going of Family Man, he’s remained fairly silent. There were rumors of a Kiss It Goodbye reunion fueled by the internet, but what comes of that has yet to remain seen.

Last night while cruising the internet, I came across two pieces of his output that are very hard to find, so I figured I’d share the goodness.

First up is the Kiss It Goodbye Demo, Be Afraid. It’s from a tape that was released in 1997 (if I’m not mistaken) so the sound quality is a little off, but it still sounds better than most stuff that’s coming out these days.

Next up is the Family Man two song demo that was released on the internet, but as far as I know, it never got any sort of a proper release. There wasn’t much information available, I’m just glad to have the songs again. I had them, but lost them with a computer crash.

Both of these are hosted on SendSpace, which is the best option that I have to store files like this. It’s easy to use.

Both of these are encoded using .m4a. It’s how I got them and I don’t feel like converting them. Use iTunes for maximum compatibility.

I also have to credit Robby Redcheeks with the photo of Tim Singer. Check out his site. He does some amazing work.

Rest In Peace, Larry “Bud” Melman…

Last night, I read on CNN that veteran Late Night With David Letterman regular, Larry “Bud” Melman passed away.

When I was younger, I’d stay up late whenever I could to catch the Late Show and it was always a great treat to see him on the show. He was just an average guy that Dave would make do hilarious stuff.

It’s a sad day. Here’s a little something I found on YouTube that I thought was indicative of things he’d do. Rest in peace, Larry.

Also, seeing the Flyers this season is comparable to having to give oral sex to a corpse. It’s gross. They’re in the cellar and every game seems to be a complete asskicking. The highlight of the season is definitely going to be this hit that Todd Fedoruk took last night. Colton Orr just walloped him.

The only thing that I can think of is Chris Tucker in Friday screaming DAMN, YOU GOT KNOCKED THE FUCK OUT!!!!!!

I watch too many movies…

The Prestige

I didn’t intend on this becoming a blog about movies I watch, but it seems like more and more it is. Considering I take in as many movies as I can, it only seems fitting.

I would say I’m late on this, but I did see it in the theater and yesterday while I was out running some errands, I picked up a copy of The Prestige on DVD. After watching it again, a lot of the little things that I missed the first time around really became apparent. It’s a well crafted movie featuring some of the best actors of our generation. Director Christopher Nolan crafted something that was expansive and just downright awe inspiring at the same time with a twist at the end that really makes you scratch your head.

I decided to take steps in battling the bout with insomnia that I’ve had recently and yesterday while running errands, I bought new bedclothes. Something that I’ve needed to do for a long, long time. I decided on getting jersey knit sheets. I’ve had them before and there’s something about sleeping in something that’s like a giant t-shirt that definitely makes sleep comfortable and welcome. Needless to say I slept like a rock for the first time in a while last night.

Of course, taking a Klonopin probably helped with that a great deal.

Oh well, that’s about it, but one last movie nugget. It seems like the poster for 28 Weeks Later has surfaced. I thought that 28 Days Later was a good movie, not as great as everyone else thought it was, but it was good. This poster kind of has me excited for the new one. Perhaps this weekend I’ll pick up a copy of 28 Days Later and give it another chance…

How did I miss this???

The Rise of Leslie Vernon

I don’t know how this one got past my radar, but this shit looks amazing.

I read about it for the first time today and I’m scrambling to get to a theater to see it ASAP.

Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon.

Check out the trailers, it looks really promising. I’ll post a review when I get to check it out.

Friday night movie night!!!

With the current shift in weather that I mentioned in my last post, there was the added bonus of sleet and now snow. Seeming that this was going to destroy any sort of plans that I may have had (which were none) I decided to hit up Suncoast at my local mall and scan the used section.

I was lucky enough to score two movies for the low price of $4 a piece.

I picked up…

Hellseeker

AND

Sky Captain and The World of Tomorrow

I ordered a pizza for my meal and now I’m hunkered down and enjoying these two fine flicks. Some might argue they’re horrible, but since I have no taste in movies anymore, they fucking rule.
