Throwing down

I am going to directly challenge Colin and attempt to stir up some malice during this ceaselessly colourless time of the year. We need spice!

I received this book and it didn't cost me a penny. A friend went to an auction and grabbed a box of these tawdry pocketbooks for $20 and due to my status as a local pervert, he presented this to me on Tuesday night as a gift with much fanfare. It pays to have the locals aware of your proclivities and peculiarities, man.

Take that!

The reverse text is as follows...


Sociologist Wilma Cleevander asked herself that very question one day. The only difference between you and her is that she was in a position to get some answers. Those answers are neither attractive nor conventional, but they shed considerable light on a serious and rapidly-spreading problem.

Catching up quick

It's been so long and I've been so often dull and sometimes cold and I continue along that same path but I will give you a small dose of poster art for some questionable type films with nary a softly ringing note of socially redeeming goodness in any form. And that's all we can ask of them.

the master of disguise returns

Meant to post this in May when I read in Variety of the new version of Fantomas being prepped to be be directed by Christophe Gans (Brotherhood of the Wolf), written by my pal David Martinez (who has done some amazing supplementary material for French DVD releases of HK films) and by the producer of Asterix at the Olympic Games and Public Enemy Number One. It marks the 14th time the French pulp fiction super villain has attacked the screen since his debuted in some silent serials in 1913. You can learn more about his history over at the International Catalogue of Superheroes. Recently got a decent subtitled copy of the 1965 version and plan to check it tonight. In the meantime, a trailer and some images from the criminal's previous exploits.
