House of the Undying scene in GoT S01E10 - disappointing (Blog Post)

The House of the Undying chapter in the book, Clash of Kings is extremely creepy.  In the series? Not so much.  In defense of the producers, it probably would have required the budget of the entire second season to faithfully recreate the scene, but still, I was hoping to see this horrific chapter come to life- especially considering they saved it for the last episode. 

Anyway, here is summary of the chapter for anyone who cares:

ProcrastinationSift (Blog Post)

How am I supposed to get anything done, dag.  Seriously.  There is just way too much to do on this site.  Like right now for instance.  I need to copy some music at kinkos, pay some urgent bills, get my car registered and still leave time to drive/load into my gig at 6, yet here I am, writing this blog.  Damn you all to hell for making me procrastinate.   

Libertarian Reluctantly Calls Fire Department (Onion) (Blog Post)

CHEYENNE, WY—After attempting to contain a living-room blaze started by a cigarette, card-carrying Libertarian Trent Jacobs reluctantly called the Cheyenne Fire Department Monday. "Although the community would do better to rely on an efficient, free-market fire-fighting service, the fact is that expensive, unnecessary public fire departments do exist," Jacobs said. "Also, my house was burning down." Jacobs did not offer to pay firefighters for their service.

Your Top Ten Horror Films. (Blog Post)

Blankfist, Smibbo and I seem to share a love of horror films, and I was curious to see if there are other horror fans out there, so feel free to go ahead and list your top 10 (or so) horror films of all time.  Just for fun, why not list your 3 least favorite horror films too.  There are plenty of horror films I haven't seen, so hopefully you can turn me on to some good scares.


Top 11 

1. The Shining

2. Alien

3. Evil Dead II

4. Poltergeist

5. Lost Highway

6. Jacob's Ladder

7. Shaun of the Dead

8. Nightmare on Elm Street

9. Dawn of the Dead (2004)

10. Blair Witch

11. Psycho (obligatory classic)


Bottom 3

I'm going to limit my bottom 3 to films that had some artistic merit to begin with to liven the discussion, otherwise it would be impossible to narrow down between the infinite terrible sequels of all the various horror franchises. 

1. Wendigo - The trailer was great, the moster was cool looking, but the film just had nowhere to go.

2. Devil's Rejects - Rob Zombie's white trash horror opera did well with critics and fans, but I found it dull and meandering.

3.  Event Horizon - A nice build up, but oh what a dissapointing climax.
