An Ashtray Full of Pennies

Junk food for thought.

To anyone still playing ACNL: does anyone out there still have the double-necked guitar and would be willing to part with it? My rock pit is empty without it.

Re: VISITING HOURS

Pretty straightforward by-the-numbers slasher that greatly benefits from a creepily intense performance by veteran heavy Michael Ironside. This movie is basically a Canadian riff on Halloween II, complete with hospital setting and seemingly omniscient/unkillable murderer, and like Halloween, its plot is rooted in trauma and circular abuse. What’s interesting here is that those circles loop, recur, and get passed along from victim to victim and from system to system. It’s not layered enough to be truly though provoking; in fact, most of the interesting bits regarding abuse, sexism, and the like are handled with the elegance of a haymaker. But it’s a cool bit of self-criticism that makes the film stick out. This isn’t a feminist film by any means, but it does at least attempt to grapple with its genres own themes in its own weird, inelegant way.

"Deep Space Homer" is a top 10 episode for me.


TV respects me.  It laughs with me, not at me!

If my Tumblr is too dormant for your tastes, maybe my slightly-less-dormant Twitter will be more up your alley. I’m mostly a text-poster anyways.

Shit, not only is he alive, he looks pretty much exactly the same as he did in 1991.

Wait wait wait wait, hold the phone; Matt “Samurai Cop” Hannon is alive?!

I mean really, how on God’s green earth can Plan 9 from Outer Space be the worst movie of all time when Movie 43 exists?
