stuff to do

It's been a super long time since I've done an event around these parts, so I say to myself and to you: why not now? And by "now", I mean "starting tomorrow"! That's right, brace yourselves for...

You know how I feel about VHS (I LOVE IT) and I've got a bunch sitting around here waiting to be, like, watched or whatever. More than a bunch! Damn you, Spudic's Movie Empire (RIP, you were the best), for your $1 VHS tapes. Damn you, Bull Moose, for your $0.30 VHS tapes. Damn you, me, for finding them all irresistible! Anyway, beginning tomorrow, I'll be watching and reviewing a movie on tape every day for a week. Isn't that the most incredible idea? I think we can all agree that it's probably the most incredible idea in the history of ever.

So you're not dying of suspense wondering what I'm fixin' to watch and talk about (or maybe you want to join in the fun! FROM YOUR OWN HOUSE, I don't mean you can come over here, pervert):

MONDAY: Kolobos (1999)
TUESDAY: Wishmaster (1997)
WEDNESDAY: Patrick (1978)
THURSDAY: Silent Night, Deadly Night III: Better Watch Out! (1989)
FRIDAY: Initiation: Silent Night, Deadly Night 4 (1990)

Obviously, I'll be spending the week in heaven.

Now then, don't you go forgetting about stuff you have to do! Have you submitted your list of scariest movies yet for the SHOCKtober celebrations? Have you watched The Omen yet in anticipation of the next Film Club meeting? Why are you just sitting around? WHAT DO I PAY YOU PEOPLE FOR?

I'd like to close with this 4-sketch card set I did, Horror High. Hooray!

Ooh, Silent Night Deadly Night III might be my favorite of the series. Bill Moseley, two Twin Peaks alumni, and a *psychic blind teenager*!

There needs to be a "VHS Rules" t-shirt that also pays homage to Sean's "Stephen King Rules" tee from THE MONSTER SQUAD. Someone make this happen. Do it now.

I'm in the same boat when it comes to stockpiling tapes and never getting around to watching them. Love that you're working towards rectifying that. I totally need to do the same.

I have wanted to watch Kolobos for the last five years! I hope it is delicious.

I've heard good things about Patrick but have never seen it or known anyone who has, so YAY for VHS!

With the exception of a special effect or two, YOU WILL REGRET WATCHING WISHMASTER. I'd tell you to "mark my words", but the internet just did that for you. So, how about, "Heed my already marked words..."?
