FINAL GIRL explores the slasher flicks of the '70s and '80s...and all the other horror movies I feel like talking about, too. This is life on the EDGE, so beware yon spoilers!

Is this thing on? No, not that thing...I mean this thing. This blog I have left out in the rain like one of Donna Summer's cakes! This blog I have neglected! Why oh why have I been gone so long?

The truth is, these things happen. I haven't been watching horror movies (effing weird, I know) and I didn't feel like doing one of those year-end lists that are all the rage. Holidays, blah blah blah, et cetera et cetera.

Well, I'd like to say I'm back and better than ever, but in fact I'm heading out to Ye Olde East Coaste tomorrow for some belated holiday festivities. I don't know if I'll be able to post whilst I'm there, for I do not know if The Internet is available out there. One thing that is available, however, is some fucking decent pizza and Dunkin' Donuts coffee. For these, I will be truly grateful. 23:45 will still be up daily during my absence, though, and my AMC column will continue to run on Wednesdays. As to any other content, well...I guess you'll just have to keep checking in! If I can post I will, for I'm beginning to feel once again as if I have something to say. Whether what I have to say is actually worth anything, however, is another story entirely (of course, has it ever been worth anything?). Still, feeling is half the battle, so there's that.

Should I find myself firmly ensconced in Ludditeville and we must be separated for a time, let me leave you with what is undoubtedly the greatest picture of all time.

So will you be traveling to our neck of the woods by rocket-propelled chair like the woman in the picture?

That would be fun!

Stacie Ponder said...

Ugh, I WISH I was traveling by rocket chair. I would travel EVERYWHERE by rocket chair if I had one. I would even go get my mail via rocket chair. This woman is my hero!

Oh, and I'm glad the MacArthur Park reference didn't fall on deaf...eyes. Or whatevs. :D

I totally stole that pic for FB. YOU CAN'T STOP ME!

I am jealous, because I know you are going to the palace of pizza, and I am not. JEALOUS!

Oh, "MacArthur Park." Ten years ago I had a job I disliked so much that I had to listen to the 18-minute "MacArthur Park Suite" every day while driving there. There are actually two different versions of the MP Suite, with the accompanying songs different lengths -- one from a promo 12" and one on the fourth side of the vinyl "Live and More," but not included on the CD. I guess I was kind of obsessed with it there for a while to notice such a thing. I never realized it until now but I passed within a mile of the real MacArthur Park every day on that commute.

That is by far the greatest picture of all time! Now a question...Is that happening to the lady in the chair because she passed gas? Just curious.
