March Movie Madness & Mayhem (Day 17!)

Zontar the thing from Venus

How ’bout a bit o’ the Irish with a look at Larry Buchanan? No bad movie blog can ignore the self-proclaimed Schlockmeister of Texas. With established stars like John “How did I get myself into this mess?” Agar and Tommy “Damn Disney–where was their LGBTQ love when I needed it?” Kirk.

No doubt about it—none of Buchanan’s films were any good. A few fell into the “so bad they’re good” category (Zontar—the Thing From Venus and Mars Needs Women), but the others (It’s Alive) comes to mind as being so bad that you end up hate watching them just for spite.

Take a gander at what The Uranium Café has to say about Der Schlockmeister and his movies!

 

 

March Madness & Movie Mayhem (Day 12!)

Double Agent 73

via Doris Wishman • Great Director profile • Senses of Cinema

I guess this is Day 12–did I post anything for yesterday (or Saturday? Better check that out…)

Anyhoo, here’s a look at the main reason why I’m even DOING this type of thing, one Doris Wishman. Her movies aren’t just movies…they’re experiences. Take a good look at Deadly Weapons or Double Agent 73, her double feature starring actress Chesty Morgan. They have to be seen to be believed, and you WILL NOT get the soundtracks out of your head. Seriously, I can run through the soundtracks of both films in my head, beat for beat!

How does this relate to Six Degrees of Stoogeration? Come on–there’s got to be a link somewhere! Anyhoo redux, take a look around the site, it’s got plenty of great info, not just about Ms. Wishman, but much, much more!

 

The Russians are Coming, The Russians Are Coming — Envisioning The American Dream

Is the Cold War being taken out of deep freeze? The accusations of Russia’s interference in our presidential election has sent a big chill down my spine, as childhood memories of the Cold War are quickly defrosted. As distrust and accusations run rampant, the terror of the Red Menace infiltrating our country, is bone chillingly […]

On The Internment of My Grandfather

I remember the exact moment that I connected internment with my family. I was in elementary school, and we had learned all about the New Deal and Franklin Delano Roosevelt in social studies. Later that week, I was at my grandparents’ house for a family dinner, and I was reciting all these things I had learned at school, talking mostly, as I had been taught, about how great FDR was. My grandfather’s sister, an ex-nun we called Auntie Auntie, said, “You know he interned the Japanese, right?”

There’s no WAY that this can ever happen again, right?

RIGHT?!

(aka: So, You’d Like to Make Money With a Blog You’ve Half-Assed Since Forever…)

Would YOU like to make money? Sure, who wouldn’t? I’ve got various domains and websites (I guess, I don’t know…) out there to “monetize” my “brand.” As of today, 18/10/16, I’ve made approximately bupkis with said sites.

Well, all that’s going to change! Taking my cue from the great Yinzerella, I’m going to begin the journey to monetizing my knowledge!

(Hold for laughter.)

Hey, don’t laugh! I live in a country where anyone, and I mean ANYONE, can run for President! Don’t count me out!

 

The Shame of Fat Shaming — Envisioning The American Dream

Some folks believe gaining weight is the worst thing a woman can do. One of them is running for president. Setting the gold standard for misogyny, ( “No one demeans women the way I do, believe me”) Donald Trump has been a fat shamer and critical of any woman who falls outside his definition of […]

Ah, yes! THIS is the man that tells me “I don’t have a choice” but to vote for him…even though I STILL think we’re being “Trump Trolled.” (It’s like being “Rick Rolled,” but you know, less entertaining, because Trumpy doesn’t have an actual talent.)

Remember! Trumpy’s ideal woman is his daughter! (No, not THAT one! The pretty one–Ivanka!)

Coloring The Truth About Ted Cruz — Envisioning The American Dream

The Ted Cruz To the Future Coloring Book was the 2013 “gotta have” present for the young tea party tyke in training. Nervous conservative parents concerned that the liberal media would turn their child into an Obama supporter, could relax! For hours of truth filled fun, this educational book promised to indoctrinate the kiddies in […]

Please note: Mr. Cruz has MORE personality in a coloring book than in real life.

Think about it.

(Also think about the fact that this man would–somehow–be worse than Trump. That’s right, I said WORSE.)
