Andy Dick Mugs For The Camera...

I'm not heavy into the movie star gossip or any of that shit. I don't care who is fat and who has an eating disorder. However.....Tell me that Andy Dick's latest mugshot doesn't scare the shit out of you. I'm thinking either the Joker without makeup and green hair or the villain from the next DIE HARD movie...

Screw MTV...

For years I have said that the best video ever made was Zodiac Mindwarp and the Love Reaction's PRIME MOVER...it has spaceships, good girls gone bad, scumbag rock stars, exploding heads and a aura of sleaziness that will make you run for the shower after your first ever viewing. The song is a blatant Judas Priest rip off, but the video is fucking fantastic...



However, this has just came into my life. The band is a Russian outfit called ANJ...and boy do they suck. The music is shite but check out the vid....



A singer who sets a girl's teddy bear on fire with lasers shot from his fucking eyes or the creeping Western influence on Russian culture as shown by raining Twinkies and American blue jeans. My God...I just don't know which one is better...

My Retro Weekend....



On Friday some colleagues and myself made the trip to New Hampshire to visit FUNSPOT at Weirs Beach. Just in case you don't know, the Guinness Book of World Records recently proclaimed FUNSPOT the largest arcade on earth. Yes, within FUNSPOT, lurked the machines that brought both so much joy and pain to me in my childhood. Upon entering the building, the four of us were slacked jawed and I think one of us wet his pants.
After 6 hours of gaming, and getting my ass handed to me by such brutal mistresses as TRON, BURGER TIME, VENTURE and TEMPEST, I tried to regain my vision during the ride home. Thank God I wasn't driving because while I was sitting in the passenger's seat, watching the road up ahead, everything looked like it came straight out of POLE POSITION.

The next day, Kelly and I decided to go to one of the few drive-ins in the state. My memories of drive-ins are limited...the last movie I saw at a drive-in was E.T. back in '82. I must say that it was a wonderful thing to revisit. The double feature of HELLBOY 2 and WANTED filled the hole of new cinematic entertainment...HELLBOY being a great flick and WANTED serving up some cool action sequences. The overall experience of the drive-in is something that is vanishing and I strongly suggest that you hit one up before they are all gone.
