Chasing The Grail

Thanks to the power of XM Radio I first heard Fozzy a few years ago. During Chris Jericho's show, he would play a tune or two. But I never really looked into it until now. When Hair Nation started playing the radio friendly "Broken Soul" I was hooked. The power pop melody's made me sit up and take notice. So I picked up the album "Chasing The Grail". Every song on this CD is hard and heavy 80's glam metal sound that I grew up on and love to this day. From the Ozzy sounding "Under Blackened Skies" to the powerful ending song "wormwood" the pounding never stops. When you need an need a pick up this CD is for you. It has never left my CD player in over a month and is the new sound of my work out.
I'm surprised by Jericho's voice for an over the top WWE superstar he sure can sing! The riffs and melody really blend well with his razor sharp vocals. So if you are in the need for a powerful ass beating the CD really fills the void!

He was eating my pot roast.

Platoon of the Dead
2009 | color | 82 min | Horror | R | Tempe Video
Director: John Bowker

Genre: Horror


Plot: In the distant future, man's greatest enemy is one another as the flesh-eating undead wages war against the living!

A Marine platoon is ambushed during a mission, leaving only three soldiers alive to fend off the growing army of the living dead. En route to their pickup point, they come across an abandoned house with three mysterious women hiding out inside. If they can make it through the night, they're home free...or so they think because someone is hiding a dark secret that may alter the course of this gore-drenched war.

Let us See what we have here:
  1. Really Bad Zombie's I could have done better makeup on Halloween.
  2. Really Really bad acting,
  3. Toy skeleton made of plastic used as a prop.
  4. The lamest Laser Blasters on the planet
  5. how many Marines have long hair let alone the leader?
  6. You're in a dire situation why the hell did you make the pot roast?
  7. Mom lets you use her house to shot your movie so you have to put her in it?
  8. What's with all the puke
  9. Dude gets eye ripped out and all he can say is ah? like it was no big deal
There is some good to this let us see
  1. Getting Drunk with your Buddy's writing a movie and the next week you make that movie!
  2. The cinema photography was the bite spot of the movie
  3. Its only 80 minutes long
  4. The pot roast really looks good
  5. Proof anybody could make a movie with a Mac Book.
  6. Great soundtrack
  7. The Idea was good.
I wonder why J.R. Bookwalter helped produce this movie? This is so bad I can't stand it, Its a great idea for a story/movie but maybe they should have pushed for Full Moon to pick this up. Yet in the same token, I watched it all the way through never really wanting to turn it off. I need to see how the train wreck was going to end. By the time it ended I did not hate it as much as I thought I would. Some day this may be on Svengoolie if that tells you anything. What I did learn from this movie was you can make a good looking movie that sounds great from the comfort of your own home. But you need to find better make-up and actors to really pull it off.

A Cold Blooded Killer!

The Snowman
R.L. Stine

Pages 181

Published September 1,1991

(Young Adult)

Poor little rich girl . . . Coveting her money, Heather's uncle/guardian hates her and makes her life miserable. Heather sometimes cannot help wishing her uncle dead. But when Heather's uncle really does die, her new boyfriend tells Heather that he killed her uncle . .for her.

I found this at a book sale for 10 cents just to have a quick read. The book starts off with Heather and Ben sucking face just like most tween books read. But for some reason, this was able to take me away (way) back to high school. Really feel the hate Heather has for her Uncle and that really sets the tone for this book.

Of course, a young handsome man walks into Heathers life and calls himself the Snowman. And she like most girls looking for the rebel in their lives falls madly in love with two boys.

Snowman is really creeping in the book and you start to feel for Heather oddly enough. I was really surprised at the pace of this book. Once it gets going its a page turner. I wanted to get to the end of the book as soon as I could. They way the Killer kept showing up was great and the charters made you feel for them as the story went.

I was really surprised by this book only took me a night to read it. I picked up a few R.L. Stine books dirt cheap and so far I'm glad I did. I did not read his books in high school and now I wish I did. Even being older now "The Snowman" really holds up.

Burn Baby Burn!

Mister B. Gone

By Clive Barker

Release Date October 2007

Pages 256

Mister B. Gone marks the long-awaited return of Clive Barker, the great master of the macabre, to the classic horror story. This bone-chilling novel, in which a medieval devil speaks directly to his reader--his tone murderous one moment, seductive the next--is a never-before-published memoir allegedly penned in the year 1438. The demon has embedded himself in the very words of this tale of terror, turning the book itself into a dangerous object, laced with menace only too ready to break free and exert its power.

A brilliant and truly unsettling tour de force of the supernatural, Mister B. Gone escorts the reader on an intimate and revelatory journey to uncover the shocking truth of the battle between Good and Evil.

I did at times find myself-talking to Mister B out loud. The Book really draws you in once you get to the middle of the book. But did this new concept work. Well... I did enjoy the whole demons vs angels story, the crappy dad and the way he told the story of Hell. I really want to tell you I liked this book but I'm not sure I can.

It took me a long time to read this but I did not want to give up on it. With that said if you see in it in the dump bin for $3.00 buy it you may like it. As for me,
