Let Some Of Your Time Be Spent On Alex Nall’s “Let Some Word That Is Heard Be Yours”


Ryan C.'s Four Color Apocalypse

The day that I write this review, March 20th, 2018, marks the 90th anniversary of the birth of one of the kindest, most sincere, most genuinely good people this country — perhaps even this world — has ever produced. A man for whom the words “legend” and “icon” are, somehow, too small — even though he would no doubt balk at being referred to as either. A man with more genuine compassion and love in his heart than perhaps anyone we’ll ever see in the public sphere again. A man who cared for every child on the planet as if they were his own and who makes me want to believe that there really is a heaven for his soul to have ascended to after his death. I’m speaking, of course, of the singularly brilliant, compassionate, kind, and frankly beautiful (in the truest sense of the word) Fred Rogers, creator…

Bats in the Belfry: MARK OF THE VAMPIRE (MGM 1935)


cracked rear viewer

Tod Browning’s 1931 DRACULA is a masterpiece of terror, the film that launched the Golden Age of Horror and made Bela Lugosi a star. Four years later, Bela and Browning teamed again for MARK OF THE VAMPIRE, loaded with horrific atmosphere but staked through the heart by two fatal blows – too much comic relief and an ending that’s a trick, rather than a treat, for horror buffs.

Lugosi and his “daughter”, Carroll Borland

The shadow of vampirism is terrorizing a small European village, as Sir Karel Borotyn is found murdered, drained of his blood! Inspector Neumann investigates, not believing in such supernatural hokum and suspecting everyone. Lovely young Irena Borotyn, engaged to handsome young Fedor, stands to inherit her father’s estate, with family friend Baron Otto serving as her guardian. When a peasant is found also drained of blood, the villagers suspect the evil Count Mora and his daughter…

Music Video of the Day: Speak To Me Of Abduction by William Control (2013, dir by ????)


Speak To Me Of Abduction is a song that played over the end credits of William Control’s first live DVD, Live in London Town and I absolutely love the song.  As for the video, it’s primarily clips of Wil Francis (a.k.a. William Control) walking around and performing in one of the greatest cities in the world, London!

The city of London was itself founded in 43 AD, by the Romans.  It was originally known as Londinium.  No one is quite sure why the Romans called the town Londinium, though there is speculation that the name was of Celtic origin and originally meant “place that floods.”

I also picked this song because today is … and this not a joke … Alien Abduction Day!  Seriously!  According to this website, Alien Abduction Day is always celebrated on March 20th.  Why, you may ask?  I have no idea.  Maybe someone famous got abducted by aliens on this day.  I’m not even sure how exactly we’re supposed to celebrate Alien Abduction Day.  Should I go out in the woods and stare up at the sky until a bright light appears?  Considering that today is also the first day of Spring, a road trip sounds like fun but I don’t necessarily want to end up getting grabbed by any of those little gray men.  Though, honestly, I don’t think they’re that tough.

I did, however, decide to see if I could find any footage from last year’s Alien Abduction Day.  Here’s the best that I could find:

Seriously, I wouldn’t want to get abducted by one of those things!

I guess my point is that everyone should be careful today.  Remember, alien abductions are always fun until this happens:

Enjoy and keep watching the skies!

Can you prove it didn’t happen?
