Count Gore & Horror Hotel!

The Ghost Host with the Most is webcasting one of my fave horror movies, Horror Hotel. This was one of the first starring vehicles for the immortal Christopher Lee. It has the feel of a Hammer film but is made by a lesser studio, (I forget the name offhand). It's a very nice and creepy little affair.

So, let's see here: Sony Ericsson is selling a camera that's really only good for looking up ladies' dresses. I had no idea the perv market was so lucrative to those folks. I can hardly wait for the cell phone that can be programmed to find and call women's phones and then breathe heavily. Losers.

An acronym finder.

Clearly, we are being misled...

The media have obviously missed the real point of this story (or have chosen to cover it up!): that alien space craft are visiting our planet and are piloted by rubber dolls. The truth is out there!

perhaps if they taught them where they go to school

The above is an article about all the "smart" kids at Thomas Jefferson H. S. Presumably, all the information in the article came from those kids, their teachers, and the school's administrators. So it's amusing to see that it's supposedly located in Alexandria. No, I'm afraid not. It's located in Fairfax County. Only T.C. Williams is in Alexandria, perhaps we were not as "bright", but at least we knew where we were.

Happy Birthday Paul Kantner - musician, performer, revolutionary, first interstellar hijacker...

Happy Birthday John Sebastian!

One of my fave performers. I've managed to catch Sebastian about three times in concert, and they've all been wonderful shows. For those of you out of the loop, John started out in a variety of folk-type groups and then helped form the Lovin' Spoonful. They were one of the best folk rock groups ever. There was a sincerity and innocence to their songs that still brings a wistful smile to my face. As a kid, the light rock songs were joyful yelps and as a middle aged man they are nostalgia floggers of the first degree. You simply cannot listen to "Daydream" without imagining yourself out on a hammock or lawnchair in the middle of July watching the clouds roll on overhead. "You Didn't Have To Be So Nice" is still one of my favorite love songs. And "Do You Believe In Magic" is one of those tunes I've listened to so much that it's now part of my DNA.
John went on to a somewhat successful solo career that continues to this day. His songwriting in the late 60's and early 70's was still great. I recommend "Younger Generation" to any parent, I'm sure it'll ring true. "She's a Lady" is another wonderful love song. And "I Had A Dream" may be one of the best songs ever written about my generation. There are many more I could recommend.
I hope that those of you who are into pop culture will check out John and the Lovin Spoonful. And I hope the rest of you will get around to breaking out those old LP's and listen and remember a time when we didn't have to tell a stranger about rock'n'roll...

Happy St. Paddy's Day!

Ah, those days at Murphy's Pub; if only I could remember them...

Star Trek Lives!

I know this is incredibly geeky, but there's a site created by a bunch of Trekkies creating NEW episodes of the first "5 year mission" The plot of the episode I saw was not a great story line, but it is a very impressive amateur effort, with lots of little in-jokes and steals from the original series, and a very cute use of the original soundtrack music. In fact "cute" is how I'd describe the whole thing. And the fact of the matter is that at this point in my life I'd prefer some inspired amateurs to a bunch of corporate suits providing my entertainment anyway.

How To Destroy The Earth

The Space Burper!

Autism cause still a mystery

While reading this article I was suddenly reminded of a short story I'd once read. It was in a little anthology of sci fi tales all dealing with god and religion, (I'm afraid I don't remember the name of the anthology, the title of the story or this particular author's name). At any rate, the story dealt with over population and the fact that as the population increased there was also an increase of children born essentially brain dead. An Eastern mystic (Buddhist?), discovers/infers that there are a finite number of human souls to be reincarnated and when that number is reached anyone born afterward is "soulless". The solution the story offers is to cut back on births, allowing the death rate to catch up, thus increasing the pool of souls from which the newborn may draw. Now, it's just offered as a piece of fiction, and I certainly intend on treating it as such. But it is weird to be facing a similiar tragedy that admits to no easy explanations a decade or two after the story was written. Very sad and very odd.
