My cervix hurts.

We left at 11 and got lost minorly on the way because there were no signs for the stupid clinic (ok, there was a sign, but it was so small even elves couldn't have read it) but we made it with 45 minutes until my appointment, so I filled out all the paperwork and then read the scary ass descriptions of what was going to happen (THEY'REGOINGTOGOINANDUSECUTTERSOMGWAT?) and then they let me in the office and explained everything and tried to calm me down by telling me how much it hurt when they had this procedure done. Um...thanks? Then they had me strip, put my feet up in stirrups, crammed a speculum in my vagina (OWOWOW) and swabbed all the vinegar in three counties on the skin to see the abnormal cells. Apparently, vinegar makes the cells turn white so they're easier to see. You know what else vinegar does? It burns like the flames of eternal hellfire. Lovely. So I'm siting there with my legs shaking almost uncontrollably because of the muscle strain of having them crammed into stirrups and spread apart like that and my crotch burning from the speculum and the vinegar, and she's sending in a pack of hunters and several hounds cramming a microscope up there to see the offending cells, and there are a lot of them, so she says she's going to biopsy them all and try to cut them all off as she goes. Wonderful. So she numbs the area with another burny swab and uses this tiny clipper/cutter thingy to clip the offending cells off (OWOWOWITHOUGHTYOUSAIDITWASNUMBOWOWOW) and then she's done, and she uses yet ANOTHER swab to apply some mustard looking shit to my cervix which apparently is some kind of liquid band aid crap. Then she's done and I get up and promptly almost fall over because my legs are so shaky which freaks them out. I tell them I had a migraine and when they hear how much acetaminophen and ibuprofen I've taken, they think that's why I'm so shaky (no, dumbass, I HAVE to take that much or it will do nothing to take away the head pain, my legs are shaky because you crammed my legs into stirrups for 20 minutes and shoved a bunch of crap up my vagina) so they ordered me to go eat something. Heidi and I stopped at Wendy's on the way back and it tasted wonderful. Now we're killing time until Saw 5 starts and she has a headache (maybe she caught mine from earlier) ad I'm updating to let you all know I'm not dead. Honestly, the speculum and the vinegar hurt more than the biopsy thing (tell me again why cutting me open hurt less than vinegar and cold metal? Is it still because I'm uptight about sex?) and the procedure wasn't THAT bad, it was better than I feared it would be, but it still hurts. My poor cervix.

So the upshot is we'll find out if she got all the weird cells and what exactly they are (she said it didn't LOOK cancerous to her, but so much of it was growing down there she wasn't sure what it was...a forest, perhaps) and we'll see what we need to do in about three weeks. Now I'm bleeding and my cervix hurts and I have cramps and feel nauseated and want my mommy.

I hate to spam you, but if you remember when I read Edward Lee's "Brides of the Impaler" I promised you I'd write a review of it, and my bossman was kind enough to put the review up at http://www.cinema-crazed.com as an exclusive, so I'd like you to read it if you get a chance. I love ranting about books and I don't get to do it enough now that I've graduated. Who knows, maybe this will turn into a discussion post. The book touches on a lot of...um...feminist issues (I tried to find a better term for 20 minutes and couldn't, trufax) so it's something to hope for.

Teh Review Iz Heer

I also have a review for the movie "28 Days Later" which I'm really proud of and that can be found here:

28 Days Later Review

Also, here is a review for "Amityville 4: The Evil Escapes." It's a terrible movie, but I think my review is funny (IMHOWISHAAAO).

Here there be bad movies!

So I just got this email in response to my reviews, and it was batshit insane enough for me to want to share with you here. SRSLY.

This guy is crazy...crazy like a FOX (A psychotic fox that is) )

So what do you guys think? Should I ignore the prophet? I hear god frowns on that kind of stuff (I think he also frowns on people using him like leverage to make a buck, but I've been told I'm wrong about that, who knows). I didn't go to church yesterday because I was so sick, you think God is pissed at me? :-p

While hilarious, this is also weird, because I have been thinking a lot lately about how I don't have 10% of my income to give to the church anymore like I used to (now that I squander that sum on food every month) so I can't give a tithe and I don't know how weird the Episcopalians are about giving tithes. I don't think I HAVE to give money like I used to, but it IS nice to support the church, since it takes money to run those places and pay the reverend and all, and I don't believe God curses me like people used to say when I was a rabid fundamentalist (though you know I struggle with the idea of God cursing me anyway because of everything I've been through and all people say to me and have said in the past and what I think about myself in my worst moments) so it's just weird that right when I'm thinking seriously about things like this, crazies are always able to tap into these things and fling God at me like an insult. Eeps.

Edit: Aaand the boss put the crazy old coot's quote up on the front page...check it out before he takes it down!

Tuesday was fun. I had an appointment for a girly exam at Planned PArenthood at 10 AM, and when I got there, I let them know I was sick, and they didn't want me coming in if I was sick, so we went 'round and 'round. Seriously, it was a big fight, we nearly came to blows. I said I could come back later, but I didn't have insurance, so there was no guarantee I wouldn't still be sick, they told me to go to the doctor anyway, I told them I went to the free clinic and all they gave me was amoxicillin which does what it always does, covered my symptoms for ten days and then they came back. My voice kept raising, and it wasn't a pretty sight. Finally they called the nurse in charge (this was just the two secretaries) and she told them to let me in, and she examined me and gave me a throat culture (which the doctor who said I had bronchitis, the one who gave me the amoxicillin, never did). After a few hours and checking me out (which technically she's not supposed to do, since she's just supposed to give pap smears, but it was a nice gesture) she said what I had suspected. I have something that's viral (like a really really bad cold) and since it's viral, antibiotics won't do anything but possibly mask the symptoms. Like they did last time. So then we proceeded with the regular pap smear and everything went alright (except I hate it when they suggest that I'm not "relaxed" because I'm uptight about sex. No, I'm uptight about you shoving cold metal shit up my cooch, I'm actually ok with sex and my naked form, I walk around the house naked all the time, and if one more person says "once you have sex more, you won't mind the exam" I'm going to scream. Again, don't mind you seeing my cooch, mind you shoving cold metal shit up it. Understand?)

Anyway shmanyway. Went home and got ready for work that night, and had a fun time. I got in the door, went straight to the cold medicine aisle, grabbed a package and opened it, ready to take some pills, then scanned it at the checkout to pay for it, and all hell broke loose. Apparently, opening something before you buy it, even though it's something I've done thousands of times as a customer, is STEALING OMG when you work there. Would have been nice to know that. I'm paying for it right now, how am I stealing it again? To make matters worse, it was flagged as an at-risk item so I couldn't buy it without my ID (which I never bring to work with me) so it took me ten minutes to work through the ensuing clusterfuck before finally clocking in. they write people up for being a few minutes late now. If I get written up, they're going to catch hell form me, because it's their fault I was late in the first place. So I didn't have cold medicine and was late. It was a great night. I felt like shit.

Even better, when I got home, I tried to sleep and my nose and throat closed up three times which left me waking up unable to breathe. IT happened all the time when I was a kid, but I haven't been this sick since I was about 20, so I forgot how bad it is. My throat panics when I can't breathe and closes up, which makes me even less able to breathe. IT took a menthol cough drop, a double dose of both benedryl AND claritin, and a double dose of cold medicine (which my coworker was so nice to buy me with her ID) before I could sleep for even five hours. I hate being sick. Things continue to be touch and go and I keep hocking up lovely phlegm and my head feels swollen and my glands are swollen and my chest hurts. Ugh. Icky poo. But now that I'm not taking amoxicillin I will admit that I feel different, and I probably should have insisted on a throat culture or something before I let them give me that crap, or argued that I should get a prescription for the generic of Bactrin because that stuff worked with my sinus infections. I dunno. I hope this passes quickly. We're all a bunch of sickies at work, so we keep giving each other shit back and forth and it's not pretty. If I just have one of my infamous colds and I can get a handle on it without antibiotics masking the symptoms and allowing whatever it is to grow worse under the surface, then maybe I'll feel better in two weeks. If not, I'm going back to the free clinic and having a talk with them, not just letting them give me a "you probably have this, here's some amoxicillin" which they did all the time even in the "real" hospital when I was a kid.

*hocks up phlegm*


50 Book Challenge Update

#34: "Water Witch" by Deborah LeBlanc

This was another worthwhile Leisure horror novel. She actually took the time to create a good mystery instead of half-assing it like most horror writers I've seen. I'm impressed. Well worth the read.

In which I rant about food )

So I've been doing a lot of writing for the Halloween horror month at http://www.cinema-crazed.com and I'd like to share my reviews and such with you all in case you want to read them (please do if you have time, and let me know what you think, it would boost my spirits even if you think they suck which I hope you don't).

Lakeview Terrace Review

My Review for the Samuel L. Jackson badass neighbor from hell movie, "Lakeview Terrace"

Silent Night, Deadly Night Review

My review for the campy slasher classic "Silent Night, Deadly Night"

My Review for Silent Night, Deadly Night 2"

Holy shit this movie was bad. I looked forward to it for so long I should have known better, but good LORD. My review is funny though IMHOWISHAAAO (in my humble opinion which is seldom humble and always an opinion)

My Review of "Friday the 13th"

I love this slasher classic. I think I articulated why pretty well. I don't think it gets the respect it deserves for being such a creepy, nasty movie.

My "Friday the 13th Part 2" Review

This movie kind of sucks, but it's fun to watch and mock with friends.

My "Friday the 13th Part 3" Review

This movie blows as well, but I offer reasons for why it blows less than part 2.

My Review for "Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter"

I really like this movie in spite of how horrendous it is at times, and I think it's a worthwhile creepy flick to watch ever Halloween season.

My Review for "Friday the 13th: The New Blood"

This movie mostly blows, but I have fun with it anyway.

My Review for "Friday the 13th: Jason Lives"

As a series, given that this is the sixth sequel, it's way better than it has any right to be.

My Review for "Fear of Clowns"

I love independent horror movies, and "Fear of Clowns" is one of my favorites.

My Review for "Haunted Highway"

This is a movie that gives all independent horror movies a bad name. I tried really hard to be funny with this review. Maybe you will like it.

My Review for Ulli Lommel's 1980 Horror Flick "The Boogeyman"

Everything Ulli Lommel touches turns to shit. Read this and find out how bad horror movies can be.

31 Halloween Horrors, my most recent Cinemusings Article

I'm proud of this more than anything else I've written this month. If you don't read anything else, read this. I had a lot of fun with it and I hope you will too.

In the next few weeks, more reviews are to come. It should be a fun time. Check for more updates flooding your Friends List with spooky fun!

Thanks for the birthday wishes everyone. Also thanks [livejournal.com profile] edtheripper for the two movies (Demons and Demons 2). I love my gory Italian horror flicks! I can't wait to watch them when I'm cramming in as many horror movies as I can for the month of October. Demons and Demons two have always been some of my favorites. They're gory and action packed but they also have enough of a plot that you can follow and figure out what the hell is going on. you rock Ed. Thanks also to [livejournal.com profile] boudiccaswrath for the Brian Keene book "Dark Hollow." I can't wait to read it (I'm starting today). I just finished my last Leisure horror book and I was excited about getting another one. Thank you so much! I forgot I even added that to my wish list. I've heard a lot about Keene and I'm stoked to check out his writing.

We've got a cool month coming up at http://www.cinema-crazed.com I'll link you guys more as the month approaches. Halloween is always much more fun for we horror freaks. I'm going to be writing a list of the 31 must see horrors of the Halloween season, we've got a guy writing drunken reviews for horror movies, and those are just some of the highlights. It's going to be great.

#34 "Brides of the Impaler" by Edward Lee

Speaking of Leisure horror, I finally finished "Brides of the Impaler" and I have a few things to say. I'm writing a review for the Cinema Crazed website, so I hope you'll all read it when it's up. Suffice it to say, it was a hard sell, but I liked this book a lot and I think I'll like Lee's other books (I'll want to strangle him while I'm reading them, but I'll be glad once I'm finished that I stuck it out).

Mmm, leftover chili on chips with melted cheese on top.

I had a shitty night at work. The girl who hit me in the stomach with the cart confronted me and said she never did that, but if she did, she was sorry (um, ok) and then I proceeded to suck all night while busting my ass trying to be as fast as I could and failing. We were crabby and grumpy by the end of the night and I was ready to kill someone when I got home.

But that's not what I came here to talk to you about...I wrote a story just a moment ago. It's not Faulkner or Shakespeare or hell, even Stephen King, and I don't pretend it is, so don't get your hopes up. But I like it.

Read more... )

I like this story because it just happened to me about a half hour ago (well, all but the comforting girlfriend part, that was the artistic license of the old maid, dont'cha know). Like I said, I don't pretend it's great literature or anything, but it made me smile, and so far, it's the only thing today that had. And that's something.

Salmonella saps all your energy and you feel like shit for days afterward. I recommend you never get it.

Oooh, I got a care package in the mail from [livejournal.com profile] charmcityhippie and [livejournal.com profile] bohemianeditor. Woot! Thanks you guys! Thia was awesome of you! Now my bed in a bag just needs to come (why is it still in Kentucky after a week?) I hope it comes tomorrow so I can do my laundry on Sunday morning and wash all my bedding. My plan is to pile all my old bedding on the mattress and then put the new sheets on to hold it on, and then it will act as a mattress pad. Ghetto, I know, but hey, I'm poor, I have to be creative. :-p

I have two new columns featured at http://www.cinema-crazed.com

What am I typing this entry on? Zombie fucking laptop, baby. I swear this thing has nine lives. After Brett snapped the old power cord and the thing died again a few weeks ago, I bought a power cord off eBay and it works again, like new. I love this thing. It will live forever, long after I'm gone.

Those of you who can handle a horribly disturbing and gory and creepy movie should seek out the movie "Inside." I mean it when I say it's DISTURBINGLY gory. It's a very pregnant woman (due to deliver the next day) trying to survive a coldly methodical psychotic woman who wants her baby and will kill anyone who stands in her way. It's grisly to the max. How grisly? I looked away from the screen a few times, and I NEVER do that, not even in the blowtorch eye removal scene from Hostel that made my friend cry (I thought that scene was kind of funny). So believe me, it will disturb you, but it's very good and it's such a solid, well-plotted, well-structured horror movie that I was damn impressed with it.

Third shift at Meijer is going well. My feet hurt like hell, but I bought some $30 work shoes thinking they would help. they hurt like hell and tore my feet to shreds. I returned them and bought some comfy $6 (on sale from $20) sneakers from Payless and bought some Dr. Scholl's gel arch supports for the shoes, and we'll see if they save my feet. I hope so. I'm trying to bust my ass to unload 200+ cases a night and stock them, the most I've done is 167, and some people are already on the chopping block for doing less than 200 so I'm a little stressed, but I'm going to keep working my ass off. You know how I used to have to walk 6 miles round trip to work and I thought that now that I worked only a mile away I wouldn't be ale to stay in shape as well? Yeah, forget that idea. I'm going to be fucking RIPPED from this job. My arms and legs already have more stamina from all the lifting I have to do. Plus I know how to work a pallet jack. Do YOU know how to work a pallet jack? I think NOT. :-p

#26: "The Zookeeper" by Alex MacLennan

This was a good book. A tad boring because I'm used to the plot twists and intrigue of Christopher Rice, but you know. It's got a likable main character who tries to figure his life out by angsting and talking to animals. I can relate to that.

I created a fun test at Hello Quizzy. It's for all the horror fanatics out there, but I worked really hard on it so you should all go there and take it.

Don't forget to read my new Long Winded column, either. :-p


I am so ready to be done with this sick shit. I tried walking to Walmart and had to run to the bathroom at Kmart, and even then still had to hide in the bushes on the way to Walmart and have explosive diarrhea too. FUN FUN FUN OMG.

With all the tragedy and drama, I've been a busy little bee. I wrote a lot of reviews lately. Here are the most recent.

My Review of The Mist

My Review of Cloverfield

My Review of Spliced

My Review of Stir of Echoes 2

My Review of White Noise 2

My Review of For the Bible Tells Me So

Also, I have real life feedback on my review! Most people ignore it when [livejournal.com profile] terminal83 tells them to go to the Answer Back Forums if they disagree or want to comment on an article, but most people are too lazy to sign up, so they don't bother to post. This time someone actually did! And they wanted to ask me about my "For the Bible Tells Me So" review! Indulge my ego by clicking and reading here. I mean, she calls it a "blog" and not a review (oops...it does sound kind of bloggy) but she asks some good questions and I tried to sound halfway intelligent in my reply. REAL LIFE FEEDBACK.

Shut up,quit looking at me like that. I'm excited. :-p

I don't know what to do about the GLWTFBBQ meetings. I really want to go to the Day Of Silence thing because they're going to be showing that movie "For the Bible Tells Me So" and there's going to be a pastor who's openly gay (I've talked about meeting him before at the Martin Luther King Jr. celebration) and I'm excited...but I don't want to run into those people ever again. Jenn came over last night and she said she was going to go to the meeting and yell at Erin and call her a bitch and everything, but I told her not to do that. I hope she doesn't. But it was really cool to have someone stick up for me. It made me feel better. Oddly enough, it was a horrible night, but it made me appreciate who my real friends are...I don't know.

New Column

edgarallenfrog: various pics of harvey milk (censoship)
Hey. I'm really proud of this new column, and so I'm asking you all to please take the time to read it. I know it's long, but it reads fast, I swear. It's about powerful movies like "Mysterious Skin" and Jack Ketchum's "The Girl Next Door" and how these movies often don't find an audience because they're difficult and disturbing, but how that's precisely what makes them so worthwhile. Family Video recently pulled Jack Ketchum's "The Girl Next Door" from their shelves, and that's what prompted this article.

Pleas read it and pass it on? Please?


Please also tell me what you think. I'm a comment whore like no other.

Look ma, I can watch WAY too many horror movies in one month. Here's my report (it's fun to read, I swear, it's not just a list...but it's fucking long, suffice it to say my original goal was 31 movies and I ended up with over seven times that number).

I have succeeded in making the best vegan chocolate chip cookies EVAR! No dairy, and they're made with these freakish chocolate chips from Meijer that have a bag that loudly proclaims "I am wheat, soy, dairy, and gluten free!!!!!!!!!!!!" Come ON, do regular chocolate chips even HAVE gluten in them? Or WHEAT? Stupid chocolate chips. But they are indistinguishable from regular chocolate chips, and they're awesome I tell you, AWESOME. Here is my recipe:

2 1/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup margarine
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoon vanilla (dump some in, you'll be close)
2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Mix margarine with sugars and vanilla, add salt and baking soda, slowly add flour (might be less than 2 1/4 cups when you're done, mine was closer to 2 cups). Mix, get hands messy, wash hands, try to stir with spoon, get impatient, mix with hands again. Add chips, become enraged when they won't all mix into the dough, end up sprinkling excess over last batch of cookies when done.

These bake at 375 degrees for about 15 minutes, and when done the edges are crispy and the centers are chewy, and they're delicious and they have no eggs so you can chow down on the dough. I'm amazed how well these hold together and how good they taste, especially since the other kinds I tried making were such a disaster (must be my oven, according to [livejournal.com profile] vegan_snark, can't have anything to do with the recipe). I am triumphant! I am a good cook! I celebrated by making some less than vegan burgers (mostly the same recipe I used before, but Iw as out of mozzarella cheese and the muenster cheese had a slight case of mold, so I used some sliced cheddar cheese and also threw a slice of bacon into the food chopper with the veggie mixture. It was divine).

I am full. I'm going to vomit. And "Don't Look Now" and "Carrie 2" are very good movies, much to my surprise (come ON, Carrie 2?!?!? WTF?)

edgarallenfrog: various pics of harvey milk (censoship)
Watching a movie for free = awesome. Even if the movie is Saw 4 and thus a piee of crap that isn't really worth seeing. Review is here. Essentially, Darren Lynn Bousman is back as director, and having made all the films except the first, his preference is still to shoot everything as if he were a film student making a Nine Inch Nails video. You get that metallic swooshing sound effect over everything, jittery jump cuts in the middle of people's sentences, and eerie, atonal music playing almost constantly. All of these devices are employed even in the non-suspenseful scenes in the hopes of creating a false sense of intensity. But it doesn't work, all that really happens is you sit there annoyed at the artifice, waiting for the 148 minutes to be up so you can see the reveal and find out what happens. And then that never happens, you see a bunch of crap thrown at you that doesn't really explain anything. Hello waste of time. Just watch all the death scenes on Youtube, because those are amazing and then you don't have to worry about the rest of the movie. Trust me, it never comes together like the rest of the series. It's like they stopped trying. But yeah, free movies + purpose in life due to reviewing movies = good.

You know what else is good? Easy-as-fuck Rosemary potatoes. Cut redskin potatoes into chunks, toss them in a container with a lid, toss in salt and herbs de provance (rosemary, thyme, savory, etc. all in one little bottle) and olive oil, put a lid on the container and shake it until the potatoes are coated, microwave them for 10 minutes so they're starting to get soft, and then bake them at 400 or so for 15 minutes or until golden and devour them. MMMMM comfort food. I was ecstatic to learn that the dollar store sells hotdog buns, so I scraped up enough dimes on the way back from work to buy the buns, so I'm having polish sausage on buns with mustard today for linner (lunch/dinner) and I'll probably make more potatoes. At this rate, the $2 I spend on the bag of potatoes is really worth the money, I wonder if I can scrape up enough money to get more potatoes? At the rate I'm going I'm going to run out after today (MMMM CARBS). I hope and pray that I really will get my food stamps next month and I'll be able to buy food. MMMM FOOD. Weight gain what? But I might not have to worry too much about my weight. I DID walk to work yesterday, walk home, walk to the theater, learn the show was sold out so I bought a ticket for the later show, walked home, walked to John's to see my kitty and drop off his birthday present, walked to the theater...my legs are so tired. It's at least 7 miles of walking in one day. My body is not pleased. Perhaps I shall not gain too much weight. I dunno.

I'm angsting today. It's only mild angst and I think it's mostly brought on by my social anxiety. I thought someone was calling my name on the way to the theater last night but they were calling their dog/cat/small animal named Lily, so I looked like an idiot stopping and looking at her, plus there were other anxiety-ridden things throughout the night (large crowds of people in lines for movies are scary) and the GLWTFBBQ meeting causes some stress too, because I'm mad at myself that I'm too terrified to go to one of their movies nights but even the thought of one of those movie nights sends me into gales of terror.

I need to take my Airborne and my calcium and my vitamins and my fish oil and start my polish sausages (LMAO, start, like I do more than put them in the microwave). It's shaping up to be a good day.

So...how was your night?

Guess who just got back from the campus GLWTFBBQ meeting?

Yep, that's right, me.

It was...hard. Really hard. I wanted to throw up walking into the room and everyone looked at me, and then I had to sit at a big table with everyone and it was scary, and then we went around and said our names and I didn't figure out what was going on at first so I looked like a moron, and then people talked. I didn't say anything, but I laughed along with everyone at some of the jokes people told My favorite was when they were discussing ideas for a slogan for a button and the vice president suggested:

"Dumbledore was gay. Why not you?"

After the meeting they all retreated for a movie night at someone's house, which I did not go to (instead I went home and I'm currently watching "Hellbent," which is a totally gay slasher flick, in honor of my bravery).

It's sad that I'm so proud of myself for going to a meeting. But I am. I"m planning on going to more, too. It'll probably always be just as hard to go to the meetings every time (it usually is) but I'll do it.

So I've been lurking around the "To Write Love on Her Arms" website again. I shouldn't, I know, because it does bad things to me, but whatever I think or doubt about the way Christianity is portrayed, I know this guy can write, and he knows how to tell stories, and he knows how to turn a phrase. I know that doesn't necessarily make him sincere, but it's hard for me to stay away, so I read his posts and his stories. They mainly affect me the way they did when I first read the blog.

The Blog, In Case You Missed It )

This pisses me off for a lot of reasons.

Move Along, Nothing to See Here )

Can I not be torn so much? Is there a way to find healing and wholeness within me and with all these pieces of myself? Sometimes I wonder if there's a way to reconcile...and I want to find a way.

First, I got a phone call form my case worker today. Her exact words were "Oops, I totally forgot, I have your paperwork sitting in a pile on my desk and I forgot to turn it in. I would have done it eventually, so there's no reason for you to call me because you're worried, because you're worried about nothing."

Um, ok. I'm glad it's all worked out, totally, I was really afraid. But WTF does she mean I shouldn't call her? Obviously if I hadn't called her it wouldn't have gotten straightened out. Cheese and rice I hate government offices. but I'm glad it's all worked out and I won't have to eat my DVDs for sustenance. I like my DVDs.

Ok, so today I got a movie in the mail. Totally free movie FTW! The guy who made it read some of my reviews and liked them, so he wanted me to review his movie. Holy shit, I'm a writer! I don't care if it doesn't sound like a big deal (and I also don't care if you think I'm going to hell and opening a doorway for Satan to stick his foot into my heart and I need ot repent) I'm excited. Stuff like this makes me feel like a writer, and that's what I want to be. With the onset of NANoWriMo fast approaching (for those who don't know, it's a competition trying to get people writing in November, and the goal is to write a 50,000 word novel in a month, no editing allowed, just write and try to make the goal) it's inspired me to write. Now nothing against the people doing NaNo, I think it's cool and wish them the best, but instead it has inspired me to work on my novella I've been putting off since the beginning of time, plus I have a column to write that's due in two weeks (and you'd all better read it then, too, because I'm working really hard on it...it's about a movie I want to have sex and make beautiful babies with). Plus I have some reviews to write, plus I'm at 101 movies after tonight. Free time? It's for losers. I'm a writer! That's much more fun than having a life!

Well, I'm up o 83 movies in the challenge. I'm watching all the Halloweens I can pack in today, I own 1-5. It's fun watching all these movies, I haven't seen them in awhile.

Last night after I packed in 12 movies during the day I hung out with my friends randy and Allison and drank. Randy bought Everclear and Allison and I mixed it way diluted with different flavors of sour mix. IT was fun at first, but then things got tense. I mentioned something about how John said something, and randy went off on me about how I kept mentioning his name instead of letting things go and becoming a "better person" and moving on, and the thing is, for the first time in months I know I AM moving on, and I didn't say his name much, Randy was just being an asshole about t. Then some other people partying with us got into a fight and one of the guys told Jessica to leave and go home, and it was even more irritating as the night went on and people started fighting AGAIN and one guy started taking my decorations and punching them and then saying 'I"m not hurting them, that's not a big deal.' Dude, that shit is expensive. sure, punch them once, but if i ask you to stop, STOP, how hard is that to figure out? Assholes. At the end of the night, they'd burned a hole in Allison's tablecloth and carpet with their cigarettes, and it was...irritating. Sigh.

I didn't get too drunk and I managed to drink enough water so I don't have a headache today.

Because I want to be annoying and because I'm watching one of the worst movies ever, I decided to hold an impromptu fashion show and show off my Halloween Costume for this year. Stand and marvel at my hotness.

I think the captions are off. Oh wells. Too much work, not doing again!

Check out the main page of the website I write reviews for, I have some great reviews there (THe REaping, Halloween 6, Hate Crime, Broken (under "indies") and I also wrote reviews for "Dead Shit" and "Dream Reaper" which earned the "Indie Spotlight" to the left and down a little. The filmmaker liked my reviews so much he emailed me a personal thank-you note:

lol Damn! If I didn't make this bullshit, I'd have to check these flicks out to see what the fuck you're talking about.

You make Hack Movies sound exactly like I saw the company in my head when I set out to make it. A punk rock film company that doesn't give one fuck about the sacred art form of film making. Balls to the wall offensive comedy that no one in corporate controlled hollywood would dare to make because it wont appeal to every paying demographic available.

Thanks, yo! :D


Today is a good day, even if I starve. If I starve I shall eat reviews.

55 horror movies so far this month, yo. And three days off in a row in which to watch them.

New Layout, yo. Just for the season, methinks.

I watched a really creepy ass little horror movie called "Wind Chill" tonight that I reccommend to anyone looking to pee their pants, and I also watched a hilarious movie called "Dead Shit" that the vast majority of people in the known universe wouldn't find hilarious, but I liked it a lot. For anyone who wants to check it out, go to: http://www.myspace.com/hackmovies

Tomorrow I work at 10:45, Friday I work at 10:45, and then I get a respite. I have at least one day off in which to boost my total horror movies watched this month. I'm at 46 right now. Go me. But some of the people on the message board who are participating in a contest to see who watches the most horror movies are claiming to have 70 watched by yesterday, a number I greatly suspect. Whatever, I'm in it for fun and I'm having a lot of that, so who cares? Come on people, you know you want to come to the dark side. Watch horror movies with me. It's what Jesus would do.
