Netflix Instant Watch: "Supernatural" (TV Series)

One of my favorite things about Netflix is the growing number of television series that are available for instant streaming at my beck and call. "Supernatural" is one of those shows that I've recently started watching and so far, I think it's pretty great. Although I'm only just starting the second season its easy to see why the show has such a huge following. Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki star as Dean and Sam, two brothers on the hunt for their father, the man who taught them how to hunt supernatural entities.

Horror Headlines: Tuesday, March 13th, 2011

Some more details on what we can expect from season 2 of "American Horror Story" are flooding the tubes. It looks like Ryan Murphy, the shows creator, is on the hunt for a Angelina Jolie in "Girl Interrupted" to battle with Jessica Lange in the upcoming season. I've never seen that movie but I do own a copy of "Mr. and Mrs. Smith" and if it's anything like that I think we've got a winner.

Oh boy oh boy! Showtime has officially dropped the premier date for season 7 of "Dexter" and what a date it is! September 30th. Isn't that a good date. Just turning to Fall time. The leaves are beginning to turn. People are starting to think about Halloween. I hope to be down two pant sizes by then. It's really going to be magical.

I don't know why but I always assumed David Cronenberg didn't even own a TV. Maybe he doesn't actually but he's working on a new show called "Knifeman". The series is a medical drama that follows the happening of a radical self-educated surgeon. Cronenberg will direct the pilot and play the producer role for the series. No word on what station this one will be on but I can't imagine Fox Family is going to pick it up.

I have no idea how to pronounce Karel Roden's name but he's been cast as a mad scientist in the upcoming film "Frankenstein's Army". The movie takes place towards the end of the second World War and finds the Russian army uncovering a creepy breed of living dead monsters that fight for the Nazi's. Sounds adorable.

In Real People News: 

"Excuse me ma'am. Have you seen this penis?" I'm not positive but I assume that's what a cop in Connecticut said when he showed a series of women a picture of his privates after stopping them for traffic violations. I mean that's what I would have gone with.

It's always upsetting when you think you've found the perfect job and then it turns out someone has turned the bathrooms into a piss dungeon. Or if the coffee sucks. Either one of those things are awful.

Snapshots: "Dark Shadows" (2012)

When I was a kid and all the other neighborhood kids were outside playing kickball and ghost in the graveyard, I was inside watching "Dark Shadows" reruns. Yes, I was even nerdy back then. I absolutely loved the story of the Collins family and Collinwood Manor and I can't wait for the big screen version to hit theaters May 11, 2012.

Reckoning the Number of the Beast - The 30th Anniversary Part 2

"The Number of the Beast" is not an album, it's an experience. Not just for the music it contains, but for what it means to the heavy metal genre's past, present and future. The textbook example of heavy metal's evolution from a rough-around-the-edges marginal grouping of musicians to a hard-charging, mother-scaring, school-administrator-nervous-sweating phenomenon, "The Number of the Beast" not only changed the face of heavy metal, but helped change what was possible for it.
