By | May 14th, 2018|

It was a nondescript thing just a box on the third floor where the “rooms” were defined by how you placed the furniture. But I had a TV and a stereo with large speakers and a really great collection of CDs and LPs. Also I [...]

Swim Until You Cant See Land (Saying Goodbye to Scott Hutchison)

By | May 12th, 2018|

It was late December 2007 and I was driving home from work listening to the radio. There is an indie station that plays Christmas music by alternative bands with alternative takes on the holiday and that is the only type of Christmas music I listen to because yeah, I’m that guy. And then a song came on. A song I had never heard before. [...]

Reckoning Upon God: Frankenstein (Monster Memories)

By | October 31st, 2017|

Frankenstein is one of the few classic monster movies that I did not see on a Saturday afternoon on a UHF channel.  No, this film was played in prime time. It was a special movie-of-the-week. A  re-showing of a classic film on “regular” TV. It was a big deal. I sat with my mother, my brother, a few aunts and uncles and my grandparents [...]

Your Draculas and your Frankensteins* and your Wolf-Mans (Wolf-Men?), your Mummys, etc. You know the safe, cuddly monsters that [...]

Creature Double Feature: My Saturday Monster Time

By | October 2nd, 2017|

Growing up my Saturday afternoons would be spent with creatures, monsters, ghosts, ghouls, murderers and mad scientists. Beginning around one o'clock I would settle down in front of our 17" Sony Trinatron (complete with simulated wood grain plastic sides) with a soda (typically Frank's grape or ginger ale) and a bowl of buttered macaroni noodles (couldn't get enough buttered macaroni for some reason) and I would [...]
