How To Dance Goth

Filexd under: Misc.,Music,TV/Movies — Tags: , , , , , , , , , , — jane @

Many years ago, before I was married, I went to all of the local goth clubs and danced the night away while looking very cool. At least I thought I was cool. A reader sent this to me the other day just when I needed a good laugh. If only I had this video back in the day. I might have actually been as cool as I thought I was with these moves. Besides being an informative video it’s also hilarious. It’s set up to look and sound like one of those old educational hygiene films from the 50s. Check out my favorite which is lesson three on how to step over your dead friend.

Skull Clock

Filexd under: Art,Decor,Misc.,Office,TV/Movies — Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , — jane @

Usually when it’s time for me to write a post I go to my handy dandy Booky Book. What’s a Booky Book you ask? Well, it’s basically my idea list for posts. I spend a ridiculous amount of time surfing the web and when I see something or someone sends me a link it goes in the Booky Book. Usually I just open it randomly and find something to write about right away. Today I couldn’t find it and out of just plain laziness I googled the word skull and eventually came across this Skull Clock. I covet this clock and at $34.95 it’s a no-brainer. That rarely seems to happen to me. No matter how much I love it though, I find myself wishing it were a little different. Maybe instead of the mouth opening up to reveal the clock the mouth could just open by itself to tell me the time. Though that’s probably just my laziness again. It would be especially cool if it had the voice of the Cryptkeeper. Oh how I miss that little guy.

Alien Cookie Jar

Filexd under: Accessories,Bar,Collectibles,Food & Candy,kitchen,TV/Movies — Tags: , , , , , , , , , — jane @

I have a confession to make. Don’t laugh at me, but I did not see the movie Alien until a few years ago. Scary Hubby kept bugging me to see it, but for some reason it didn’t interest me. I’m not a big Sci-Fi fan and I thought this was just another run of the mill spaceship in peril movie. Finally we were visiting Scary Hubby’s parents in Philadelphia and he and his Dad decided it was time I sat and watched this movie with them. Since I was trying to be a good daughter-in-law I had to give in. An hour later I was convinced this was one of the scariest Sc-Fi movie I had ever seen and added it to my list of great scary movies. I have since seen the sequels which were all good, but nothing compared to the first. I wish I had given in sooner and seen Alien when I was younger, but it still scared the crap out of me. So, I was on vacation in Hawaii last month. I know what you’re thinking and no I am not a sun or heat worshiper. Wearing all black and going to Hawaii don’t really mix, but Scary Hubby and Scary Daughter wanted to go, so I gave in. Turns out I had a great time which I will save for a later post. Anyway, I was poking around in a store and found this Alien Cookie Jar. So cool. I had never seen one like this before. I secretly bought it for Scary Hubby since it’s one of his all time favorite movies and gave it to him when we got back. Needless to say, he was thrilled and it now sits proudly on our kitchen counter daring all to take a cookie. I especially like it because the Alien’s hand looks like a skeleton. Scary Daughter has not seen the movie, but insists that we have to make Alien baby shaped cookies to put inside. So, now I am off on another quest to find an Alien cookie cutter. How do I get myself into these things? Any ideas where I could find one?

Fright Before Christmas

Filexd under: Accessories,Art,Decor,Holidays,Misc. — Tags: , , , , , — jane @

Are you like me and have money to throw away? No? Well, I don’t actually either. I’d like to though. If I did I would probably buy this Christmas decoration. It’s called Ghost Bust Fright Before Christmas and is sold by for… drumroll please… $1,499.00! Basically it is a life-size bust that comes with a small projector and a DVD. The DVD is played on a DVD player (not provided) and projected onto the bust to make it look like it’s actually moving. You can also purchase something called a Control Freak Media Monster. This will allow it to be set off by a mat or motion sensor. It also includes the DVD player and costs another $259.77. Not sure why the 77 cents is necessary. If you still don’t feel that you’ve spent enough money you can buy a Blaster that blows a burst of air at you as you walk by for $140.00. It does look pretty cool, but I don’t see myself spending that much money on a Christmas prop. Check out the video, maybe you’ll find that it’s worth it.

Screaming Mask

Filexd under: Accessories,Art,Decor,TV/Movies — Tags: , , , , , — jane @

mask2Technically this piece is actually called Yawning Mask. When I saw it for the first time I didn’t think he was yawning at all. It looks more like a ghost or something screaming. It totally creeped me out and therefore earned a spot on my blog. I actually found this in a Signals catalog, which surprised me. Once in a while they have an odd piece in there, but this one was just too creepy to pass up. Maybe it’s the way it’s photographed that creeps me out. There’s just this emptiness behind it that makes it appear soulless. Is that a word? Anyway, I can’t imagine anyone but someone like me wanting this in their house and I’m not even sure about me. It’s beautifully hand carved in Indonesia from Hibiscus wood. It appears to be very smooth. It states in the description, “Don’t be surprised if you have the sudden urge to yawn.” Really?! So far, I have not yawned even once looking at it. They also describe it as being humorous and serene. I’m not sure about that. It actually reminds me of the mask from Scream to be honest and they aren’t exactly serene movies, though they are humorous. What do you think? Does it scare you or make you yawn?

Horror at the Oscars

Filexd under: News/Articles,TV/Movies — Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , — jane @

I finally got around to watching the rest of the Oscars. I was out that night and only caught the big awards at the end. I had heard that there was finally a tribute to horror movies and I was anxious to see it. Now that I have seen it I have some complaints. First off why were Taylor Lautner and Kristen Stewart presenting this? I mean, really, are they today’s only answer to modern horror movies? I liked the movies, but they are pretty tame in the horror department. Why not have the queen of scream, Jamie Leigh Curtis or Mr. Nightmare himself Robert Englund?  Heck, why not Bruce Campbell? I know they wanted to pull in the viewers by getting the Twilight kids, but use them for something else. There were much better choices for this presentation. My other big beef with this was the opening statement that the Oscars had not honored a horror movie since The Exorcist, 37 years ago. Really? What about the numerous awards that have been given out since to horror movies for visual effects, sound, makeup, costumes etc. Do these not count? Tell that to the winners. So, if these don’t count, what about all of the awards given to Silence of the Lambs? Best actor, actress, picture, director, screenplay were all awarded to that which is much more than what was awarded to The Exorcist. They only received awards for sound and screenplay. I guess you could argue that Silence of the Lambs was not a full on horror film, but the Academy included it in the montage, so that argument goes out the window. Putting all of that aside, I was thrilled to see the Academy giving horror movies their due. You can’t deny that the general public loves horror movies and it was about time that they paid homage to that.
