Movie Review: Halloween [2007]

Rob Zombie’s re-envisioning of the granddaddy of all slasher films will undoubtably polarize critics as you’ll either love it or hate it vehemently, but it is doubtful you’ll leave the theater somewhere in the middle.  Whereas John Carpenter’s 1978 original helped define the boundaries of a genre, Zombie’s reworking is one part homage, one part decidedly modern (read: violent) […]

Sad Days indeed!

Two legendary institutions have passed.   The Associated Press is reporting that Hilly Kristal, the founder of legendary nightclub CBGB, has passed away after a long battle with lung cancer.  He was 75.  For those who don’t know, CBGB was arguably the ‘garden of Eden’ for early punk rock; a small “hole in the wall’ establishment where […]

Jagermeister’s Truth in Advertising

Over the weekend, I learned something fascinating and thought I would share it.  Many of you may have heard this before, but it was new to me. On Saturday, I dropped off some old paint cans at the hazardous waste collection facility.  Since I was doing a lot of yard work, I was dressed in worn […]

David Hasselhoff – Emissary of Satan.

Was channel surfing last night and decided to subject myself to the last 30 minutes or so of the ‘America’s Got Talent’ season finale.  If you caught it, then you know that near the end, judge David Hasselhoff was featured singing the song “This is the Moment” from the Broadway production of ‘Jekyll & Hyde’, of […]

A “Match Made in Hell”

Last Friday, Great White played the Alrosa Villa here in Columbus.  This is the rock n’ roll equivalent of the ‘perfect storm’, as the Alrosa was the site of 5 shooting deaths in 2004 during the Damageplan show (including guitarist Dimebag Darrell, the shooter Nathan Gale and 3 others) and Great White had the horrible fire started […]

Goodbye Banners! Hello RSS Feeds!!

Ok, I just spent the better part of my evening trying to figure out why my RSS category feeds don’t work.  Long story short – it appears that my permalink structure was blowing everything up.  So I went with the ‘default’ (ugly) setting.  Seems to be working FINALLY.   And you may also notice that the […]

Ozzfest – Columbus, Germain Amphitheater 8/8/07

For the record, this is my 10th Ozzfest and with the state of outdoor amphitheater’s in Columbus, this may be the last I see at this venue – possibly even this city. That being said, I thought that this was perhaps one of the strongest line-ups for any Ozzfest and well worth attending. As is […]

Pre-Ozzfest prayer

The Prince of Darkness is visiting my little corner of the woods tomorrow. In honor of this occasion, I offer. . .the pre Ozzfest prayer; Oh God (of Thunder), Keep me from loosing my tickets so I don’t have to pay for this ‘free’ concert, especially since I waited online for 3 hours to get […]
