|You Probably Shouldn't Have a Weak Heart . . .

. . . if you click links I sometimes share.
That link's pretty cute, at least.
Be sure to pass it 'round.
Halloween's around the corner, and JK Cinema still has their cache of urban legends videos up and available to watch. I enjoy them because they remind me of The Weekly World News.
When I was a kid, I used to read WWN whenever I went with my folks to some convenience store or pharmacy. They were pretty cheap, and I could never get enough weird stories. My life was filled with enough melodrama and actual drama to the point where I needed some escape, and that was part of it.
It's also time for the classics.
JKCinema has always been one of my favorites. I'm still playing around with the idea of turning the Urban Legend story about the paint thinner into a short film.
Also, isn't it weird to think that almost the entire Akkad family has been wiped the fuck out? Except the scumbag son who'd sell the rights to his own name if he thought he could make a buck?
Weren't they all like that though?
Isn't that kind of how Halloween 3 got into the mix?
I mean, the whole series doesn't make any sense, minus the third installment . . . that one can stand on its own just fine, but the later versions, it's like I really just want to combo 1-2 with H20 and that's about it because the rest . . . too all over the place.
I had this HUGE answer to your questions, but LJ ate it all. Here's the condensed version:
The only ones that ACTUALLY count are "H1", "H2", "H20" and "H: Resurrection".
"4", "5", and "6" are thrown out, much to my chagrin, as "Halloween 6" is my favorite of them all, after the original.
If you can, track down "Halloween 666: The Producer's Cut" and marvel at how much better the story is compared to what was released theatrically. Also note how it uses Carpenter's original music as "temp score", as opposed to the heavy metal vibe of the theatrical.
I have it on DVD, got it off ebay for about $22.00 or so. You can probably find it cheaper. I'd burn you a copy and send it if I knew how, as thanks for letting me see your friend's short film a while back.
I fucking hate it when that happens.
For some reason, is LJ freezing up at all for you when you're tooling around the pages?
I'll have to track that down, the 666 cut . . . I need a PO box where I can use for send/receives . . . I really fucking miss my apartment.
Yeah, LJ's been freezing quite a bit actually.
And yeah, like I said, ebay's good for it.
This is much more professional looking than MY DVD, but it's also more expensive:http://cgi.ebay.com/HALLOWEEN-6-THE-PRODUCERS-CUT-SPECIAL-LIMITED-EDITION_W0QQitemZ130037815233QQihZ003QQcategoryZ617QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem
Doesn't seem to be too many for sale, which sucks, but hey, it's October. If there's a horror convention around where you live, you can DEFINITELY pick it up there, but for a little more, as it's illegal, lol.
I wish I knew why it was slowing down . . . not sure if it has anything to do with all the new stuff they rolled out . . . hoping they aren't using space on their servers for it.
five more days til Halloween...Halloween...Halloween.
Five more days til Halloween...Sil-ver Shamrock!
Although I haven't had the chance to see that extended cut of a later film we talked about that is either bootlegged or only available overseas.
TIGERS! CARDINALS! IT'S THE WORLD SERIES, ONLY ON FOX!
People here are pumped.
MLB's lucky that Detroit got to the big dance in this sport. This metro area has always loved baseball the most (longest history to the 1800s).
From what I can tell from staring at stats . . . man does baseball suck for many more teams than it ever used to . . . just looking at the ERAs, ugh.
that website is the best.
Which one, the WWN home, or the baby?
