Hard 4 F13
"I never saw it coming!", is such a bullshit statement. As a true cynic I can tell you, it's always fucking coming. So if you didn't know before, now you know.
First the good news:
"Friday the 13th" came out in full force today with the release of four DVDs I have been eagerly awaiting. The closest Best Buy had them in stock, I had a gift card from Xmas that covered the tab, and man-o-man did I need the fucking boost!
Next-first, the bad news:
Today was a real peach of a day. I rather like peaches though, so that is not a good description.
Today was beets. I fucking hate beets. Start to finish I do not like anything about beets. The smell. The texture. Bad! Except the shape is kind of cool, and the color's not bad...
Today was worse than beets. As I was about to arrive at work I remembered that my gym bag was not in the SUV since I had taken it in last night to pack it for the week. Sounds dumb, I know, but this was one of those inconveniences that was more than just the sum of it's parts. Funny thing, it turned out NOT to be the worst part of the day. In the context of the rest of my day, I could have used the workout. Wish I could say the same about my computer. Using it that is. Or the construction project I took on while waiting on my computer system restore. That was an exercise in "what the fuck?!" to say the least. Or the printer at work - you know that scene in "Office Space"...
OK, now more good news:
That shit is over and Daddy has his meds now. Besides, I am now the 'proud' (more like placated) owner of the, 'uncut', widescreen, deluxe, cock-n-balls edition of, "Friday the 13th", "Friday the 13th Part 2", and "Friday the 13th Part 3 3-D". From what I hear though, the movies are more cock than balls; get us some double disc releases for fuck sake! Fucking suits...
The fourth DVD I got is, "His Name was Jason" and I am pumped about that one for sure. Not to mention the 5.1 surround mix and the HD mastering which, as reviews go, is worth the wait. Definitely have a hard-on for that. Still, it would be nice to see more extra material, not to mention the fact that I am not 100% certain these cuts contain ALL of the 'extra' footage/detail/gore/nuts! Minus of course the 'lost' stuff from part 2. Fucking suits...
Ooooh, packaging the flix in a box set with a REAL machete would have been pretty ball-sy. And good for cutting stuff.
So here is how this will play out. Whatever you had planned for this coming weekend, forget all about it if you plan to come to my house 'cause we will be watching some serious fucking horror. Now that football is over (cough-BULLSHIT-cough), chances are good that one of these DVDs will be playing at any given time throughout the weekend. Gotta get that good 'tussin out into the air.
Raging Har Dawn.
