Keanu Gets Cool

When did this happen? It slipped right past me. Keanu Reeves was the worst successful actor in Hollywood. I amend that with the word “successful” because there are plenty who are worse, but none of those feebs has achieved anything close to his level of success. And it’s not like mine is a singular opinion.…Continue readingKeanu Gets Cool

The Macabre Dime Museum – Worth So Much More

As I was going to be on the road, passing through Augusta, Georgia, on my way to visit with the Lizardman of Bishopsville, South Carolina, and as I learned about the existence of the Pexcho’s American Dime Museum, I knew I had to make it a point to drop by. The proprietors are, during this…Continue readingThe Macabre Dime Museum – Worth So Much More

Resurrection Springs

Back during the Revolutionary War, some British soldiers were badly wounded in a battle with those lousy American traitors. Unable to travel and soon to die, they were left behind by their commanding officer, along with some other men ordered to stay with them until they died and then to bury them. Before the soldiers…Continue readingResurrection Springs

Movie Review: THE VANISHING ON SEVENTH STREET

Poor Hayden Christensen. It really is a shame that those prequels (you know the ones of which I speak; in the years since the franchise has been resurrected by the new trilogy, I refuse to even list the prequels as part of the continuity) were so lousy that they derailed his career. The guy actually…Continue readingMovie Review: THE VANISHING ON SEVENTH STREET

Revisiting the Classics: FIRESTARTER

Stephen King considers this one of the worst movies ever based on his work. I wonder if he’s seen them all, as there are some that are far worse. Um, SLEEPWALKERS, Steve? At least that one was fun, though. Same with MAXIMUM OVERDRIVE. But then we have movies like GRAVEYARD SHIFT, DREAMCATCHER, and (gods help…Continue readingRevisiting the Classics: FIRESTARTER

Movie Review: YOU SHOULD HAVE LEFT

This one has parallels to another Horror flick from earlier this summer, RELIC, in that it features a house that tends to “change” when its residents aren’t looking. There are hints of the real-life Winchester Mansion in there, too. And if Kevin Bacon does end up playing Freddy Krueger, as those persistent rumors claim is…Continue readingMovie Review: YOU SHOULD HAVE LEFT

THE CHOSEN Part Three: A STUDY GUIDE TO THE RIDDLE OF THE SPHINX Chapter Two

Brian awoke to the earliest hint of sunrise, a faint milky light that seemed to pursue the car as they had earlier chased the setting sun, driving due west. He and Dave had driven nonstop, swapping out and stopping only long enough to fuel up and buy junk food. They’d kept to the Interstate, gambling…Continue readingTHE CHOSEN Part Three: A STUDY GUIDE TO THE RIDDLE OF THE SPHINX Chapter Two

Candyman Yanked

You suck, Universal! Boo! Hiss! And again I say, you suck! Things were just starting to, slowly, painfully, with baby steps, return to some semblance of normalcy. Theaters are back open. TENET, THE NEW MUTANTS, and UNHINGED all released as they were supposed to, and did well, relatively speaking. Why, why would you *now* choose…Continue readingCandyman Yanked

A Visit to Goblin Country: the Pennyroyal Museum

It’s something of a crapshoot, finding a place of interest open during this time of pandemic. I got lucky during my recent visit to Hopkinsville, Kentucky. I got in touch with a cool lady at the Pennyroyal Museum and made an appointment to visit. I had to, considering they have an exhibit dedicated to the…Continue readingA Visit to Goblin Country: the Pennyroyal Museum

The Giant’s Coffin and the Spirits of Mammoth Cave

I highly recommend a visit to Mammoth Cave to anyone, as it is a true natural wonder, the largest cave of its type in the world. Once an underground river, there are places where the ceiling, remarkably smooth for a cave system, reaches seventy or more feet overhead. It is so big that church services…Continue readingThe Giant’s Coffin and the Spirits of Mammoth Cave

The Little Green Men of Kelly, Kentucky

Because the little town was originally settled by folks of predominantly Irish stock, it was decided by the powers-that-be that the “Goblins” would be called “little green men” despite the fact that they were really silverish-blue in coloration, Glenda Sutton Morris, daughter of eyewitness Lucky Sutton, told me. (Get it? Irish? Green?) That’s part of…Continue readingThe Little Green Men of Kelly, Kentucky

A Visit to Hobgoblin Country: The Site of the Kelly-Hopkinsville Incident

As it just so happened, I was in the area at the same time the annual “Little Green Men Festival” was supposed to be taking place in Kelly, Kentucky. I say “supposed to be” because it, like so much else this year, got derailed by the ‘Rona. I also visited the site of the encounter…Continue readingA Visit to Hobgoblin Country: The Site of the Kelly-Hopkinsville Incident
