Let’s Celebrate #GlobalJamesBondDay By Ranking All The Bond Songs! @007

Let’s Celebrate Global James Bond Day By Ranking All The Bond Songs! October 5th has been Global James Bond Day since 2012. In that time, it has been customary for the production team behind the 007 films to release the theme song for the next Bond flick, starting with Adele’s Skyfall. Being as the latest Bond film has not started filming yet and as such there will be no new theme song unveiled this year, I thought it might be a good bit of fun to rank the Bond songs in…

And Now For Something Completely Different… The Olympics! #rio2016

And Now For Something Completely Different… The Olympics! #rio2016 Some folks love Baseball, some prefer Basketball, and a healthy amount eagerly await the Football season like a pack of wild ravenous hyenas looking for freshly grilled meat to eat on their tailgating excursions. Me? I don’t watch any professional sports anymore. I was a huge supporter of baseball in my youth, and I even occasionally enjoyed some basketball, but much like the Star Wars films, as I get older I find that there is no valid reason to keep supporting…

Tougher Than It Is…

Some People Like To Make Life A Little Tougher Than It Is… Over the past few weeks I’ve hit a crossroads of sorts, especially in reference to this blog. I themed out a few months worth of content in May and June, and for the most part I stuck to my guns and really hammered out a lot of great posts about cheesy b-movies, independent musicians & filmmakers, video games, movies & recording artists you should check out, and a bunch of other stuff. Since then, I’ve kind of been at…

Open Letter to @SEGA – Here’s the Plan #Phoenix #VideoGames

Open Letter to SEGA – Here’s the Plan! From the Ashes of the Past 15 Years: A New SEGA Can Be Born! Full Disclosure: I love SEGA. As in from my first SEGA Genesis in 1990 all the way through to my Dreamcast console that saw it’s run end in the early 2000s, I hardly played any other gaming platforms. I never owned a SNES or an original Playstation while they were popular, I bought them used many years after the fact. SEGA was my home, and at the time they…

People Getting It Done: Singer/Songwriter & Horror Guru Rody Hillman #payitforward

I Love It When I See Friends of Mine Getting Creative Things Done! Today’s spotlight is on the living laser: Rody Hillman! Yesterday was all about the beacon of positivity: Craig Kotfas. So, it’s only right and fair that I bring balance to the force by highlighting the shenanigans of my favorite force of darkness, the sarcastic drummer/zombie/laser : Rody Hillman. Rody has been continuing to work on his various projects, even through wild adversity, and that’s part of why his and Craig’s story are so inspiring. These are not the…

People Getting It Done: Singer/Songwriter & Improv Meister Craig Kotfas #payitforward @CraigKotfas

I Love It When I See Friends of Mine Getting Creative Things Done! Today’s spotlight is on Craig Kotfas! Today, and for the next couple days, I’m going to hand pick somebody from my ever widening circle of friends and known associates and highlight some of their accomplishments. The goal is twofold: first to shine a light on some wonderfully talented individuals, and second; to tell them thank you for being a source of personal inspiration. These are the folks whose stories inspire me to try and find the time…

Plan For June: Weekly Themes! Tons of Fun! #payitforward

After a Long Month of Reviewing Cheesy Low-Budget Movies in May, I’m Going to Switch Gears in June and Pay It Forward! Taking on the personal challenge of reviewing movies, offering commentary, and finally writing an entire film script for my month long tribute to Full Moon Features was a fun, rewarding, and exhausting exercise (which you can read all about by clicking HERE). It was hard to find the time to squeeze the time in to watch all of those movies (I did 18 total film reviews), and write,…

Confessions of a VHS Rental Junkie @fullmoonhorror @RealCharlesBand

Hello, my name is Packy and I am a recovering VHS rental junkie, and also Head Llama on this blog. This is my story: If you were born after 1997, there’s a good chance that you probably haven’t ever watched a movie on VHS. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, it just means that you weren’t around for the home video revolution. You see, VHS tapes were the fast widely accepted form of video playback ever. You could buy just about anything on VHS, from your favorite big screen movies to…
