I haven’t been writing very much lately. There is an editor looking at a draft of my latest project, The League. I am hoping to get it back soon and start some rewrites. I have been feeling a bit nervous about it, but more hopeful as I research publishers and whatnot. Still, I go into a weird hibernation during these times. I should be doing some short stories or something.

Instead,  I am up at 7:30 in the morning watching Slumber Party Massacre in a small window in the corner of the screen because it is about to go off the Netflix instant cue.


Slumber Party Massacre (1982)
The DVD seems hard to get a hold of, at least, I don’t feel any need to own it. I have been interested to see it since I read Rubyfruit Jungle. Rita Mae Brown evidently wrote this as a spoof, but the studios shot it as a straight slasher film. I’d like to know more about that. I feel an academic paper coming on. So far, the main character, Trish, seems to be regularly frightened by people who are not the killer. I hope she is later scared by a cat.

Yes!!! It just happened. Cat scare. Not kidding. Right as I am writing this. It doesn’t get any better than that. Catacting- Slumber Party Massacre.

Here’s a great dialogue exchange:

Character 1- “Let’s go by and scare the girls.”
Character 2- “But we’re not invited.”

Needless to say, Rubyfruit Jungle has a little depth to it. My dream as a writer would include having a serious novel published and a grossly misinterpreted screenplay turned into a movie. I’m almost sure it wasn’t Ms. Brown’s intention, but I think it’s sorta cool.

Mr. Frost (1990)
Jeff Goldblum as the devil? Yes, it’s a stretch, but interesting. This is one of those movies that asks a lot of vague philosophical questions and never answers them.  But you can’t look too hard for answers in a pseudo-horror film where the devil gets arrested and goes in for a psychological evaluation. Goldblum has a few good moments in this. This movie never made it to DVD, but it’s worth a look unless you find Goldblum irritating. I don’t.

Starcrash (1979)
How bad does this Corman flick want to be Star Wars? Pretty badly. The special effects fail miserably in this film, but create some interesting visuals. I watched this with Joao with the sound off. It’s a good one to listen to records to.

And if you are listening to records, here are some new slabs I’ve been into:


The Barreracudas- Nocturnal Missions
Really great power pop album.


The Dicks- Kill from the Heart
Long awaited re-ish of a long out of print Dicks record out on Alternative Tentacles. The download includes the essential Hate the Police 7″.

Lightnin’ Sam Hopkins- s/t
If you think you’ve heard Lightnin’ Sam before, then here he is again. I never come across a dull album. Arhoolie have released some reasonably priced blues re-issues on record with downloads. I also got the recent Earl Hooker re release. I’ve come across a record review website I am planning to submit reviews to. I am working on a review of this one to submit.

Midnite Snaxxx
The Bobbyteens are a favorite of mine. I’m working on a review of this for Razorcake.

 

Bobbyteens- Back in the Saddle
The BT’s discography on cassette is a no brainer. Burger Records has this on sale for $6. No-brainer.
