“My Autumn’s Done Come” by Lee Hazlewood

Someday I’ll finally be too tired to go out. I’ll be too tired to meet with friends or talk with strangers. I’ll be too tired to run, or dance, or explore. Instead, I’ll sit back in a comfy chair as my joints crack, resting my weary body, probably enjoying a cocktail, watching the leaves turn brown and fall from the trees, as my own hair gets whiter and sparser on the top of my head. For a little while, I’ll be content. And then I’ll eventually close my eyes. And go to sleep.

“Fade Into You” by Mazzy Star

I am a shy teenager caught in an eternal slow dance in a school’s gymnasium, hushed, embarrassed, and awkward, my arms forever enfolding my unrequited love. I am an admirer pining away from a distance, but never standing to meet, gazing and longing forever. I am the loving and lonely soul who gives away my whole heart only to have it given back to me. I love what can never love me back.

The Joup Friday Album: The Phantom of the Paradise OST

phantomofparadiseTwo years before he tackled Carrie in 1976 to open himself up to a much wider audience, Brian De Palma made the absolutely bonkers musical/rock opera/horror schlock film The Phantom of the Paradise. The movie is a take on The Phantom of the Opera and Faust, but taking place within the music industry. William Finley plays the wide-eyed Winslow Leach, an aspiring music composer and singer whose songs catch the eyes and ears of satanic record producer and club promoter Swan, played wonderfully and devilishly (pun absolutely intended) by Paul Williams. From there, we have love, betrayal, murder, mutilation, a deal with the devil, and a string of grand, rock and roll music numbers.

Thank God for VOD! – Late Phases

I don’t get to go to the movies as often as I’d like to, but that doesn’t mean I can’t watch awesome flicks at home. Thank God for VOD!

Werewolves are the redheaded stepchild of horror movies. While vampires and zombies get all the celluloid, accolades, and cold hard cash in our movie theaters and on our TV screens, werewolves are unjustly delegated to roles in crappy action franchises and ridiculous young adult garbage. It’s not fair. Where are the good werewolf movies? Where are the flicks I want to see? Where’s the meat? Sure, there are some great films out there like John Landis’s An American Werewolf in London, or Joe Dante’s The Howling, or Neil Marshall’s Dog Soldiers, but we need more of them. Werewolves need more. Werewolves deserve more.
