The unholiest of kings

That's an Alice Cooper lyric, don't you know? He's scary. He was scary and then he seemed to change and grow scarier, really. But I digress.

I'm offering you (like a sacrifice) the delight of the most frightening half-minute film clip you're likely to see during the year's most haunted of times. Guaranteed to shake you to your very core and leave you shivering, curled up and seeking any form of stable comfort at all as your shrieks echo off to disturbed silence. It is...

And speaking of wicked, check this out.

What I'm trying to wish you, here, now and in video form, is the most rockin', wickedly-awesome and frightening Hallowe'en ever, man. Have fun!

Gerard Damiano 1928-2008

I could never afford (or would never pay those prices!) an original Deep Throat poster but, thankfully, Gerry Damiano made other films with wonderfully alluring advertising! His role in the world of adult film is certainly cemented around the magnificent foundation of that one film's often remarkable legacy. His talents are questionable, to some, and nobody knows who really made all that money but it makes one hell of a good story if you care to read about it or watch a documentary. And then there's Linda Lovelace and her versions of events as well. The mob, the court cases, the controversy, the indeterminate coercion, the smash celebrity and the birth of 'porno chic' all from one woman's talented mouth!

He seemed like a decent and fun-loving guy with a great hairpiece and a totally groovy fashion sense. And he had sex with a young and eager Annie Sprinkle.

Go with gentle care, Gerry Damiano!

I can just barely ever get enough Gould.

And here's a good snippet about Toronto that is unwilling to be embedded.

That Same Belgian Excellence

I think I figured out why Belgian beer is so strong. Horror, surrealism, Sylvie Vartan AND Orson Welles! What the hell is Malpertuis?

the honeymoon is over

A search for some possible choices for a 16mm screening yielded this amazing trailer and captivating pop art credit sequence. And of course, I just had to share. Hatchet for the Honeymoon.
