As Seen on TV :: Saturday’s Cure for a Dalek soul and 9’o Clock at the Train Station

As Seen On TV :: Saturday, August 30, 2014 In this installment of “As Seen On TV” I will give a three-sentence review of the second episode of the new season of Doctor Who, where Capaldi has his first meet-up with the Daleks (at least his first with this face), and episode two of Intruders, where we remain confused, and feel distrustful of the “FBI”, the number 9 and lawyers (well that last one may be an always). This feature will include SPOILERS, so read at your own risk and consider yourself warned. Please share your thoughts in the comments … Continue reading As Seen on TV :: Saturday’s Cure for a Dalek soul and 9’o Clock at the Train Station

So many different people to be :: Under the Covers

Season of the Witch :: Karen Elson Keep Art Alive :: Art by By ljzoelle on deviantART So many faces to put on every morning, so many girls to be each day, a new mask replaces an old one, as the hairs grey, as the skin crinkles, as the eyes darken from all she can’t yet un-see. Every lover takes a different view, a perspective crooked off to the side, like a raised eyebrow, or a case of vertigo. Some deem the girl an angel, the other a harbringer of a great evil, yet none of them leave ever knowing … Continue reading So many different people to be :: Under the Covers

The deafening silence of experiment experience and what looked a lot like an ending for Mike, Reggie and that persistent Tall Man :: Saturday Horror Movie Double-Featu

The Quiet Ones and Phantasm IV: Oblivion :: Saturday Horror Movie Double-Feature As we near the end of August and head into the spookiest season of all (just wait until October, we may overdose you readers on horror double-features), we ended our Phantasm franchise-a-thon (well, until the fifth and final installment is released) and took a visit a cinematic trip back to the 1970’s via Hammer pictures to bear witness to a “based on a true story” college experiment gone wrong for this installment of our Saturday Horror Movie Double-Feature. The Phantasm series quasi-ended (they thought it was the end when the … Continue reading The deafening silence of experiment experience and what looked a lot like an ending for Mike, Reggie and that persistent Tall Man :: Saturday Horror Movie Double-Featu

Keep Art Alive :: “Ghost” :: Art by Lauren O’Neill “And I’ve never seen blue, like the blues he drives.” His eyes were the bluest when we linked arms underwater, wide and true and beckoning me to unravel in his gaze I screamed into the stroke of midnight chlorine filling up my lungs and he just held me still breathing second chances through an open mouth kiss turning me from blue to a pale pink My eyes were the darkest when we turned at different corners far and false and fading into a goodbye without any words And now I … Continue reading Through me again :: SOTD

1984 :: The year in music :: Throwback Thursdays

The Best Songs of 1984 by willtopsmusictv 1984 :: The Year In Music Throwback Thursday I was 15 years old in 1984. My life was High School, MTV, music and pin-up magazines, school dances (the “casual” ones), slam books, trips to the movies and record stores, notes passed in class, sleepovers, and endless phone calls that would tie up the phone lines forever. Hours and hours were spent watching out for my favorite music videos and trying to tape that song I couldn’t get enough of off of the radio, carefully timing the finger push on the record button to cut out … Continue reading 1984 :: The year in music :: Throwback Thursdays
