The 1980s was a terrible decade for hair and a great decade for horror. Here are links to a couple of recent writings about movies that will throw some intentional scares and an occasional unintentional laugh your way.

The House by the Cemetery (1981)

The Return of the Living Dead (1985)

I break with thee, I break with thee, I break with thee, and then I throw dog poop on your shoes.

If anyone is looking in because I closed down my social network pages (myspace, facebook), understand that it’s not you, it’s me.

I have been extremely bummed out recently and, while I don’t really have anything against social websites per se, being on social networks makes me feel like a sell out. Besides that, I don’t think I have the capacity for the mental clutter that it brings on. These websites act as a constant reminder of a lifetime of people I have failed to connect with on a meaningful level. Not only that, but I am realizing that I just don’t have anything to say. When I do, it takes more than 400 words and I obsess over it.

This may be a bi-product of depression, but I am going to look at the clearing of my mental clutter as a sign of better things to come. Those of you I know, I like, but I’m too neurotic to know what you guys are thinking all the time.

If you are looking at this, you are probably not among those who post their breakfast menus on Facebook, and are therefore free to write for ‘updates.’

For anyone interested parties living in Pima County, the library is now carrying DVDs of my first short film, a documentary I did a couple of years ago called Vinyl Scrapyard. It won’t change your life, but I enjoyed putting it together.

Roman Polanski’s latest film The Ghost Writer is a nod to Hitchcock as well as old Polanski.

Here is a link to my review of a remake of Geroge Romero’s 1973 film The Crazies.

Shutter Island (2010)

The Wolfman (2010) 

Here are some links to recent reviews I put up at Off the Marquee. Not that it matters in the grand scheme of things, but my numbers at that site have been up significantly recently, so if you are looking at those reviews, thanks a lot and keep it up. You are making a difference for me there.

Neither of those movies were particularly good in my opinion. So far, it has been a slow year for movies. I am looking forward to The White Ribbon this week. My Almodovar article has not been going so well, so I have been feeling a bit discouraged about my effectiveness as a writer. There are just weeks like that, I guess. I have been working on some new fiction recently. Maybe I will put up a new story soon.

I had a good double feature at home over the weekend. Big Stan (2007), Rob Schneider’s direct to video directorial debut and the recently released film about a famous man who has lived most of his life in the British prison system named Bronson (2010). Both were better than I thought they would be. It has inspired me to consider doing double feature reviews. I am gonna have to suss that out a little.

Hope all is well with you all…
