Lisa’s Week In Review: 5/21/18 — 5/27/18

This week started out poorly but it got better on Tuesday.  That’s when I came across an interesting statistic. Only 21% of American adult have a twitter account.  Why is this important?  Because we tend to assume that the worst people online represent all of humanity when, in all reality, most people aren’t even online.  Once I realized that, this week got a lot better!

Anyway, it’s the holiday weekend!  Erin and I spent it at our uncle’s!  I got to work on my tan.  I got to hang out with family.  It was the perfect way to end a week.

4 Shots From 4 Vincent Price Films: The Last Man on Earth, The Masque of the Red Death, Dr. Goldfoot and the Girl Bombs, The Witchfinder General

4 Shots from 4 Films is just what it says it is, 4 shots from 4 of our favorite films. As opposed to the reviews and recaps that we usually post, 4 Shots from 4 Films lets the visuals do the talking!

Today is Vincent Price’s birthday!  This edition of 4 Shots From 4 Films is dedicated to him, his memory, and his career!

4 Shots From 4 Vincent Price Films

The Last Man on Earth (1964, dir by Ubaldo Ragona)

The Masque of the Red Death (1964, dir by Roger Corman)

Dr. Goldfoot and the Girl Bombs (1966, dir by Mario Bava)

The Witchfinder General (1968, dir by Matthew Reeves)

Music Video of The Day: The Bloody Verdict of Verden by Christopher Lee (2012, dir by ????)

Today is Christopher Lee’s birthday so it only seems appropriate that today’s music video of the day should be for a song that appeared on Lee’s first full-length album of original music, Charlemagne: By the Sword and the Cross.  This was a “concept album” about the life of the first Holy Roman Emperor, Charlemagne.

To be absolutely honest, this really isn’t my type of music but Christopher Lee was one of the greatest actors ever and if anyone earned the right to a vanity project or two, it was him.
