Before there was Call of Duty or Medal of Honor there was Castle Wolfenstein. The 1981 game that I spent hours playing on the Commodore 64 bares little resemblance to any of today's first person shooters but it did pave the way for the 1992 hit Wolfenstein 3-D. This game changed my life. Probably not for the better, since I spent most of that summer sitting in front of a computer killing Nazi’s and eating microwave corn dogs.
I can’t imagine that five minutes before the curtain rises for "Toxic Avenger: The Musical" the actors walk around and give each other the standard “break a leg” routine. No, I assume there's a bunch of ass slapping and motorboating going on for this kind of show. I could be way off base though.
No matter what you think about the upcoming “H2: Halloween 2” film, you gotta love Bill Moseley. I’ve been a fan every since he played Chop Top in “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2”. Well Mr. Moseley was to play "Uncle Seymour Coffins" in the second installment Rob Zombies “Halloween” reboot, but unfortunately a few weeks back was replaced by the dude you see above. He's Haddonfield’s very own Creature Double Feature host who brings the best in horror to the masses every Friday night at 10:30 on channel 18.
Do you play with dolls? Sure we all do, but most of us try to only do it in the privacy of our own homes or in certain underground clubs where a password is required and you normally end up in a ball gag. But now you can put your sick pastime to work for a greater good. Or if you’re more into animation or painting, that will work too.
Apparently there is a group of people out there that are classified as mecaphiles. What’s a mecaphile you might ask? Well I’ll tell you and then good luck getting some z’s from now on! A mecaphile is someone who is so into a machine that he or she actually makes love to it. This means there are people out there getting busy with cars, planes, amusement park rides and even bridges. You think I’m shitting you but in the past week I’ve seen videos of different people who have discussed their intimate moments with each of those objects.
Who doesn’t love a good musical? Well, me for one, and I’ve always been a firm believer that any man who doesn’t hate their father shouldn’t either. But now I’m a little torn. Why you might ask? Well this week “The Toxic Avenger: The Musical” opened up for previews to the general public in New York City.
New Jersey has more diners then any other state, is second only to Maine in blueberry production and has the countries lowest depression rate. Oh and it's also the home to everyone’s favorite monster hero the Toxic Avenger. For that reason Nike has teamed up with NJ Skate Shop to create the SB Dunk Lows, the first shoe inspired by Troma's superhero.
To this day I still get excited when driving on the Long Island Expressway and I pass the sign for Amityville. The 1979 movie “The Amityville Horror” made the house at 112 Ocean Ave something like a local celebrity. When I was a kid those two front windows of the house frightened the crap out of me way more then Freddy or Jason could. From what I understand people still drive by the house and even stop to take a look and I don’t really blame them.
