The New Cialis Campaign

by on May.17, 2008, under Commercials

Thanks to Cialis, limp loined losers can now get laid in as little as 30 minutes! It lasts up to 36 hours! Erectile dysfunction, impotence, heartburn, acid, diarrhea. This’ll cure what ails ya thanks to the mysterious new miracle chemical tadalafil. The home grown bone toner was purposely named to sound like a falafel stand, because the main ingredient is chick please.

The Strangers in the Night

Nothing fills people with dread more than the words ‘based on a true story.’
It was this claim that instilled absolute terror at the mere mention of Amityville. Even the director of the live action Scooby Doo movie scored a huge horror hit with his remake of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, which was based on the original TCM movie instead of the story of Edward Gein. As far from the truth as that movie was, it still served to scare the hell out of a lot of people. I’ll admit the original still freaks me out. But that’s horror.

Want some fries with that terrorist?

I never felt the urge to see Super Size Me. That movie always seemed like a cheap shot at a faltering giant. ‘Wow, nothing negative has ever been said about McDonald’s before, what an original idea!’ What’s next, Smoking: It may or may not be good for you! I read Fast Food Nation, even before it became a movie starring Avril Lavigne. I read Slaughterhouse: The Shocking Story of Greed, Neglect, and Inhumane Treatment Inside the U.S. Meat Industry. Well, I read the book flap in the store. Needless to say, Super Size Me seemed like a waste of time for someone as knowledgeable and in tune with the world as me.

Requiem for a Stone Angel

by on May.08, 2008, under Film, I'm poor

A few nights ago I was watching TV with my girlfriend when a trailer for the new film The Stone Angel came on. My mind raced during that thirty second slot. I began to feel angry that somebody had remade this awful movie. Admittedly, I occasionally get stone and cement confused; this is why I lasted only one summer as a masonry apprentice. Somehow I had mistaken it for ‘The Cement Garden’ by smarmy englishman Ian Mcewan. This was a book that, to put it mildly, I didn’t love. After reading it I threw it from the window of a moving bus. Don’t worry, crap is biodegradable.

The Tokyo Rockabilly Club

by on May.07, 2008, under Around the World, Rockabilly

When I was visiting Japan a few years ago we went to Yoyogi Park on a Sunday afternoon. There were so many performers lining the walkway it was incredible. Every ten to fifteen feet or so you’d run into a new band, street performer, dancer, musician, comedian, or some other kind of performance or costume that I couldn’t quite describe.
My favorite was the first group was saw at the front gates of the park, The Tokyo Rockabilly Club. A circle of eight to ten massively pompadoured, tough looking leather clad rockers, all dancing to Japanese rockabilly played over a small boombox so loudly that it was distorted almost beyond intelligibility. And damn, these guys could really cut a rug. Usually in the middle of a song one of them would take a ‘dance solo’ while the others clapped and encouraged him to go harder, when he finally exhausted himself the group would all start dancing again.
It was very strange, and very cool. Unfortunately our camera had about 10 seconds of film when we got to the park, but these clips should give you an impression of what a performance is like. If you’re ever in Tokyo make sure to head to Yoyogi Park on a Sunday afternoon, you won’t be disappointed.

Mr. Clean commercial that didn’t make the cut.

by on May.04, 2008, under Commercials

What the hell is wrong with those morons, this video is brilliant. Not only is it catchy and entertaining, it also demonstrates why you shouldn’t eat cleaning products and features washroom sign sex and a talking toilet. Brilliant!

The Hillbilly Hellcats in Dead and Breakfast

by on May.03, 2008, under Horror, Original Artists, Rockabilly

I was honored to receive an email from Lance Bakemeyer of the Hillbilly Hellcats this morning regarding our clip of the zombie dance from Dead and Breakfast. In case there was any misunderstanding, that wasn’t the Hillbilly Hellcats music the zombies were dancing to, it was Zach Selwyn of the country rock band Zachariah and the Lobos Riders (quite an interesting cat).

Dead and Breakfast

by on May.02, 2008, under Commercials, Horror, Rockabilly

In keeping with our musical zombie theme, here’s a scene from the horror/musical/comedy Dead and Breakfast. This movie boasts a fantastic soundtrack by the Hillbilly Hellcats, as well as some great tunes that narrate the story, blood, guts, violence and everything else you look for in a family film. This particular clip shows and undead horde converging on our heroes who’ve barricaded themselves inside a bed and breakfast. Unlike the rest of the film, they suddenly stop their assault and begin…dancing?

Canadian Punk Rock circa 1977

by on May.01, 2008, under Original Bands

Here’s a cool video that originally aired on CBC Sept 27, 1977. Hana Gartner decides to find out what this punk thing was all about by interviewing Canadian punk legends Teenage Head, The Viletones and The Poles between sets at a five hour show.
Apparently she didn’t dig it too much. She asks Steve Leckie aka Nazi Dog why he cuts himself, and while speaking with Frankie Venom she told him, “I’ve been listening to you this evening, and the Viletones, and if I may be honest the only thing I got out of it was a headache.” Frankie responds, ‘Oh gee, yeah? Tough.” Also features interviews with punk girls who slash themselves because they’re bored and much more.
