Dexter 3.09 "About Last Night"

Well, what d'ya know? Not only did Miguel go rogue and break the Code almost immediately after being introduced to the ways of bad guy killin', it now looks like he's been setting up Dexter from the start. I'm looking forward to an exceptionally pissed off Dexter in the last few episodes.

Horror Headlines: Monday, November 24th, 2008

Adrien Brody talks about starring in Dario Argento's next film, "Giallo". I sort of want to be excited about this film, except I've seen Argento's last few. They were, how you say, "not good".

Concept art for sexy fem-aliens in James Cameron's "Avatar". I can already tell this film is going to make me uncomfortable, in the best way possible.

The guys behind the "Halloween" comic series over the last few years, are prepping an issue called "Halloween: Mark of the Thorn", which will be a continuation of the Tommy Doyle/Thorn storyline that started in H5 and came to an incredibly confusing ending in H6: Curse of Michael Myers. I'm not a big comic book guy, but I might consider picking this up, just to see a take on it 10 years later.

In Real People News: 

Man suicides on live Argentinian TV. This one had nothing to do with the economy, but if you notice, they're getting closer and closer to the US. Should we start a pool to see how long it takes to happen here?

Ever hear someone on the bus argue with the driver about how much feces is on a seat? Ya, me neither. But based on the story I'm guessing the driver didn't realize that no amount of shit on a public transportation seat is acceptable.

Apparently you can split someone's skull open with a pickax. I just always wondered if that scene in "Return of the Living Dead" was accurate. I guess the answer is yes... besides the whole yellow reanimated corpse thing.

On this day in history: 

William Duell, murderer, hanged at Tyburn in London. He is not killed immediately, though this is not noticed by the executioner. Deull later awakes on the dissection table.

The New XBOX Experience: First Impressions

Anyone that has listened to the podcast in the last few months has likely heard me continuously mention the new Xbox Live Experience. This new update promised many things such as cutesey, Mii-like avatars (pictured) and the ability to install games to the hard drive, but I was truly excited about a slightly less-mentioned feature, a steaming Netflix app. As with any highly-anticipated tech event, there are about as many things that lived up to the hype as those that did not.

The Good

Where in the World is Louis Tripp?

Earlier this week I came across a sequel I had never seen, 1990's Gate II: Return to the Nightmare. Being a big fan of the original Gate flick, I had high hopes. Especially considering that the second movie starred none other than the ginger haired metal head Terrence 'Terry' Howard who's love of satanic death metal started the problem in the first place!

Comics Creepshow 16: The X-Files

Want an original adventure with Mulder and Scully but don’t feel like going near their recent so-so reviewed film? You can’t go wrong by checking out Wildstorm’s brand new X-FILES comic, written by Frank Spotnitz and drawn by Brian Denham. Though this first issue is very low key in regards to action and X-files mythology, it still delivers a compelling story, and captures the magic of the hit 1990’s tv show.
