Early morning nerdery

I decided that next year, when I'm visiting California, I want to make a point of driving up to Big Sur to see the giant Redwoods.

And I must do so dressed exactly like Kim Novak in Vertigo.

Or else what's the point?

The Pander House

If you have stumbled here randomly or if you are one of my three friends who still reads this, I would like to recommend a podcast. Anyone who knows me knows that I love bad movies. Hello, 'The Abominable Dr. Phibes' is one of my favorite movies of all time.

But what about movies that come out now? Well, yeah, most of them are crap. And none of them can capture the delight you feel when you see Vincent Price conducting a clockwork symphony, or putting on his Vincent Price mask or killing a lady with brussel sprouts and locusts. But I digress.

The Mask Wears The Man?

For a hilarious spin on the crap films of today, I can't recommend The Flop House highly enough. Though honestly, every episode contains minimal talk about movies. A lot of it is the guys digressing into discussions about Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Underwater Sex (anyone tried it?), The best way to kill Scrooge McDuck (drown him in his pool of money) and what would happen if Penny from Inspector Gadget met a Dinosaur. Start from the beginning and work your way up, because there are occasionally callbacks to previous episodes, not to mention some very undefined contests with no discernible prizes and a saga of a patchy, peg-legged cat.
