Scary Supernatural Villains
Without a doubt, there's a big appetite for scary supernatural monsters that are practically unkillable. Even over-exposed slice and dice bullies like Jason, Freddy and the Creeper have a large following. I call them bullies because they like to pick on beings that are much weaker than themselves.

In my screenplay, Hotel California, the antagonists are a powerful mysterious group in Area 53 called "the caretakers" who abduct humans and run strange experiments on them. The actual place of these experiments is hidden by fantasy worlds that "entertain" the guests at the hotel.

Can you play the ancient Katimavik game and discover its terrible secrets?

Number One At The Boxoffice: Jeepers Creepers 2
Mood:  spacey
The thrills may be cheap and the reviews bad, but "Jeepers Creepers Two" delivers the shocks that its audience wants.
The reviews are entertaining too.

Read the lyrics.

Top Ten Karaoke Favourites
Mood:  lyrical
Over the last ten years, I've enjoyed singing in karaoke bars very much. I've discovered that upbeat 50s and 60s music is still well-liked. While I enjoy the music of Al Jolson, Perry Como, Frank Sinatra and Nate King Cole, they're not that popular with karaoke audiences that prefer rock and roll.

Below are my top ten karaoke crowd-pleasing songs:
1.Burning Love 2.Hang On Sloppy 3.Devil With The Blue Dress 4.Little Devil 6.Cracklin' Rose 7.The Wonder Of You 8.The Wanderer 9.Roll Over Beethoven
10.All Shook Up
Al Jolson is my favourite singer of all time. Here is his website.

Movie Review 41: The Sum Of All Fears
Slow moving plot gradually picks up speed towards a spine tingling ending. Terrorists get hold of an A-bomb which they plant in Baltimore, USA. Story has interesting stuff to say about truthful information and disinformation, but the film runs in many confusing directions that reduces the tension until half way through. Movie should have been carefully edited to one and half hours instead of two. Two and half stars.

Review: The Canadian National Exhibition
Mood:  happy
The "Ex" is over a hundred and twenty-five years old. It always has something for everybody. My favourite is the air show this weekend.
See you there or see you square.
Three stars.

Joke Of The Week
Mood:  hug me
A dog limps into an old western town. He spies a saloon and and manages to drag himself through the swinging doors. The music and the commotion stop as all eyes are upon him. With considerable pain, he climbs onto a bar stool and orders a bottle of whiskey which he guzzles down. He looks into the bartender's eyes and says, "I just want to know who shot my paw."
The dog's day job.

We All Should Have A Dream
When we let freedom ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God's children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual, "Free at last! free at last! thank God Almighty, we are free at last!"

Voting On The Tentative Agreement Begins Today
There will be no rubber stamp on this tentative agreement negotiated by the CUPW negotiating committe.
Lots of controversy and emotions have been stirred up in many areas. The heart of the "no vote" has expressed itself on the Sudbury message board. Not exactly the media for intelligent communications. The "yes side" is represented by the National Executive Board.


Who's going to win? Here's my prediction:"60% yes", "40% no".

The Top Ten Ways To Annoy People
Mood:  irritated
1. While waiting for a streetcar with a large group of people, stand at the curb and stare in the opposite direction. It'll come just as fast whether you're watching for it or not. 2. Reply to tedious e-mail messages from acquaintances with the word "unsubscribe" in the subject box. 3. While driving on a hot day, roll up the windows and crank up the heat. Then repeatedly announce how "damned freezing it is in here." 4. Travel to Amsterdam and bring home a pound of grass. Not marijuana, but real Dutch turf. Do it just to be able to tell your friends you pulled it off. When flying home from Turkey, tape a pound of breakfast hash to your stomach. 5. Wear a "Guess Who T-shirt" to a "Who concert" and walk around to the concession area telling strangers that you've waited your entire life to see Burton Cummings do the "windmill." 6. Hail a subway car. As you stand on the platform, wait for the rumble of the train to approach and then make a move like you're going to jump. The driver's face is hard to see in that hyperspeed blur, but look closely, the grimace is there. 7. When being introduced to someone, find a way to apply their names to some kind of cliche or slogan. Brook becomes, "If it ain't Brook, don't fix it." Toby naturally begs the questions, "Toby or not Toby?" 8. When returning a Lotto ticket, ask the clerk to scan your ticket. When he or she tells you that you didn't win, say: "Well in that case, I'd like to return it." The clerk says no. You reply. "What do you mean I can't return it?" "It says $5 million right on the ticket" "I spent $2 on this and you're telling me I get nothing...?" "I'm going to take my Loto business elsewhere." 9. Leave union paraphernalia around your non-unionized workplace. Whisper things like "grievance procedures" and "worker rights" within earshot of the shift manager. This kind of pestering is especially effective at Starbucks and Gap franchises. 10. Answer your telephone by saying, "Line three, you're on the air."

My own particular favourite is teleporting people into unknown areas.

Jason And Freddy Still Number One
Mood:  mischievious
Even though the storyline and the villains of Nightmare On Elm Street and Friday The Thirteenth are as old as the hills, they still pack enough punch to make them number one for the second week in a row. Let's face it, there's a big demand for scary thrillers out there and this film doesn't have much competition.
If you feel like taking on powerful undead guys, why not try your luck in The Gehenna Funhouse. Have fun.
