I just finished viewing a great horror comedy that was just released this week on dvd for everyone’s Halloween viewing pleasure. ‘Doghouse’ is little a British film that certainly delivers the laughs and gore a’plenty-ala Shaun of the Dead and Severance. The plot is simple, nine middle aged men set off for a weekend of drunken mayhem to a little village in the middle of the woods called ‘Moodley’ where apparently the females outnumber the males four to one. What they arrive to however is a bit more mayhem than they bargained for as it seems this little resting place turns out to be filled with psychotic mutated she-beasts!
That’s pretty much it folks, if you have short attention span and feel like drinkin’ a few beers this halloween with your fellow fiends you best put this little gem high up on your list of movies to see. Continue reading
Tomorrow evening I’m heading off to Seattle to ultimately end up friday evening to see one of my all-time fav punk rock bands Screeching Weasel! I’m pretty pumped as when I first heard them in 1990 they quickly went into heavy rotation as a soundtrack to my highschool years. Their album “My Brain Hurts” is one of the best punk albums of all time hands down. Now they’re back again in 2010 and it turns out a buddy of mine is actually in the band playing bass leading to me being on the guest list at the show(whoa-o-o-a-oh)!
Formed in 1986 these guys have been crankin’ out some of the snottiest anthems of the 80’s and 90’s and hey their from Chicago-near my old stompin’ ground, Wisconsin. Besides Illinois is really just the little brother state to the dairyland anyway. So in honor if this dork rockin’ this friday check out a couple tracks from the midwests best, Screeching Weasel…
Wow-well I just heard the news today that one of my all time favorite bands The Descendents are back playing shows again! As you probably already know they’re the pioneers of pop punk. They have been a major influence on so many bands yet never themselves have ever really gotten the recognition they deserve. Not only are they completely from the old school, as they formed in 1978 but they are also probably the dorkiest punk band on the planet.
Lead by punk icon and undeniable nerd Milo Aukerman these guys have made some of the most aggressive and sappy punk rock songs of all time Continue reading
Ok last night was totally fucking epic! I finally saw Iron Maiden live in Auburn Washington and must say it was one of the greatest, if not the BEST live show I have ever seen! We were in the pit and managed to get about 15 feet away from them. It has been a long damn time since I have seen a band with as much energy as Maiden. These guys are in their Fifties and have 10 times the energy than most bands out there half their age. I was truely blown away to see a band have so much fun on stage performing every song with a smile and sounding damn near perfect.
So a few highlights of the show were Continue reading
Well my time HAS come! There’s not too much for me tosay today as I am preparing myself for the Iron Maiden concert tonight! In a few minutes I will be hitting the road and headed to metal heaven to see the best metal band of all time perhaps on their last tour ever!!
It’s gonna be an epic night of fucking rock and hopefully Maiden gives it their all. It seems from most of the footage I’ve seen that these guys have actually gotten better with age-anyway I will leave you with The Wicker Man one of their best songs and from what I hear the track they open with!!
Well the vampire craze has definately gotten out of control again! It seems as if everyone is makin’ a vampire movie these days since the success of the highly over rated crap fest “Twilight”. It really is too bad when a trend which is otherwise pretty dang cool is started by a shitty ass movie! At the least the zombie revival was kicked off by the amazing 28 Days Later. But still I’m a fan of the vampire, even though this year was supposed to be the year of the werewolf it seems to have been derailed by the Wolfman. So vampires are everywhere still and I’m not opposed to that, hell I even got into True Blood.
Hey if you check out this link here at BloodyDisgusting.com you can see the new trailer (it’s not on youtube yet) for the Upcoming Clash of the Titans remake. Better yet you can finally see exactly what the legendary Kraken looks like! This movie is looking pretty amazing and this new footage keeps the hype level pretty high! Oh yeah and speaking of the Kraken and Clash of the Titans let’s not forget the awesome toy line that came out in 1980! This is on ebay right now too and if I had an extra $300 laying around I’d bid ! Amazing!!!
Historically, and most notably in the last couple years, Vampires have been ruling the roost of the classic horror style monsters. From Nosferatu, through the Anne Rice years, and now with True Blood and Twinkle…or Tinkle…or Twilight…(whatever that lame ass 16 year old girl popular vamp series is!!) these blood suckers are just about as popular as Zombies. Don’t get me wrong, there are uber vamp movies out there that I consider bright spots (Blade, Near Dark, and Fright Night). But let’s loose these sad Goth night lovers and I hope I see a new revival of the classic Werewolf! Early 2010 looks to be bringing these furry cursed friends to the big screen in a new and classic way.
