"Lost Boys 3"? It's official, someone has it out for me. While we wait with baited breath to see if this will get made, be sure to join in on the discussion of the most recent sequel.

Lloyd Kaufman says that "The Toxic Avenger" will be returning! The next project, currently being scripted, will follow Toxie as he deals with fatherhood, his wife's menopause and oh, a villain who wants to rename Tromaville to "Scheisseville". Production will move ahead once "Poultrygeist" has been rolled out, which will finally be hitting DVD on October 28th. Also of note, "Geist" will have a 3 disc, autographed, limited edition version including (as per usual with these guys) a 90 minute "making of" documentary. I can't wait!

Orlando father's lesson on "how to party" he was giving to his 15 year old son ends abruptly when the son overdoses from a combination of oxycontin and methodone. Methodone? Are we just skipping the actual heroine addiction these days and going straight to methodone?

Morgan Freeman may have fallen asleep at the wheel in Alabama this weekend, leading to the car accident that left him with a broken arm and shoulder. I can't say that I blame him, because I tried to watch "March of the Penguins" the other night and his voice put me to sleep in about 4 minutes. I can't even imagine what it's like to have those sweet, dulcid tones in your head 24 hours a day.

German police issue bullet proof bras to female officers. Now this is a move I can get behind.
