The Nuclear Edge--Wish List

So, I spent the entire weekend without electricity, wandering around between friends and family seeking warm shelter like a wayward gypsy. Mental note: not a fan of ice storms anymore. The point is that while I really had nothing better to do, my ruminating turned toward the upcoming holiday. To that end, I have composed a wish list of things I'd like see to happen as a favor to me. Most, but not all, are music related. They appear in no order.

M. Drew's Holiday Wish List!

New Years Day/Steve Niles Contest!

In recent weeks, FearNET online has begun streaming episodes of NBC's "Fear Itself" series that aired last summer. Continuing with the rollout, starting December 18th, FearNET will start streaming the episode "New Years Day", which was written by Comic legend Steve Niles.

HEROES 3.12 "DUAL"

Last Night's episode was the end of Volume 3 : 'Villains". Though there was quite a few cringe inducing moments, caused by either bad acting or poor writing, this half of the season ended on a high note.

Let's start with what was good. Sylar seems to be back on his evil kick, though it looks like he has developed a conscience by this point, where in his very last scene he is begging Angela Petrelli to tell him there is good in the world, and that not everyone is a monster like he is.

Between a Rock and a Hardwicke

If you're like me, you've not only caught TWILIGHT fever, but also TWILIGHT chills, TWILIGHT throat polyps and TWILIGHT cholera. Yep, I'm dying of TWILIGHT-AIDS and thank God there's no cure! Being such a huge fan, when I'm not writing TWILIGHT hardcore gay slash fan-fic, I'm following every little bit of TWILIGHT news...wait...no, I can't do this. I tried, and I can't.

Horror Headlines: Tuesday December 16th, 2008

"Terminator 5" has been greenlit, with both McG and Christian Bale attached, despite the fact that we still don't know if T4 is going to suck or not. Sure the trailer was pretty decent, but you should never go for more than a day without thinking "that dude directed both Charlie's Angels films". It helps to remind yourself of that every once in a while.

"Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever" makes it's way onto DVD in April of 2009, only 5 years too late. I am actually interested in it though, because the director Ti West also directed a fantastic little indie film called "The Roost". Should be interesting to see what he can do with some actual money.

Buffy co-star Charisma Carpenter to headline a horror film titled "House of Bones". The story involves some reality show ghost hunters. I pretty much stopped reading at that point and went and google image search her name. Well played on my part.

Here are some pics from "My Bloody Valentine 3D", due in theaters January 16th... which I just realized is exactly a month away. they're worth checking out to see genre vet, and all around pimp Tom Atkins back in action.

Rob Zombie officially signed to direct "Halloween 2". In other news, my childhood prepares to be pooped on yet again.

In Real People News: 

Microsoft has found a flaw so big in Internet Explorer, they're urging you not to use it until they can patch it. Hey, at least they're being honest now.

Store refuses to sell kids lightsabers in the UK because they "resemble toy guns", which apparently were banned as children's toys there recently. I have so many issues with this story, the least of which is the fact that there are still Woolworths around.

Apparently left with no other option to pass his drug test, a Florida man broke into the refrigerator and stole all the piss. Predictably he got caught, and is now far more screwed than if he had just failed the test.

On this day in history: 

1920: In Kansu, China, an 8.6 earthquake kills 180,000 people, mostly from building collapses. But 20,000 froze later because they were unwilling to reoccupy housing during the winter.
