Got my new Jason Voorhees Part 4 Shower Scene hockey mask from by buddy Crash Cunningham at Crash Creations. Made a short unboxing video showing the nifty packaging and of course, the awesome hock. Fully suited Jason cameo follows the unboxing.
I called three stores (Office Depot, Staples, & Best Buy) looking for a printer recommendation and decided to share my experience with each of them. Best Buy definitely did not defy expectation. Talk about a store that has gone straight down the crapper. Take a listen and share your opinion below.
Surge is back!
It’s taken years, but the fans have finally convinced Coca-Cola to resurrect their famous citrus soda from the 90’s. Surge returned to the market, via Amazon, and is consistently the best seller in it’s category. Word on the street is it won’t be long before it returns to retail stores.
Mission 9 in Alien Isolation takes us through as a team of explorers on LV-426 in search of the derelict spaceship that is emitting the distress signal that the crew of the Nostromo honed in on in the original Alien film from 1979. It is a total throwback to the old film and I couldn’t resist making a playthrough vid w/commentary. Hope you all enjoy!

I was happily ignoring all the Ice Bucket rage until my nephew called me out. Time to man up.
The return of the original Freddy Krueger headlined Flashback Weekend 2014 in Chicago, IL. Horror fans came out in droves to pay respect to an icon of horror cinema which included a rare photo-op.
When I first heard this event was happening I knew I wanted to be there. I had recently ended my convention hiatus for Days of the Dead in Indianapolis back in June to meet Amelia Kinkade (I’m still glowing, btw). Only real question hovering above my decision was would I plop down nearly $400 and drive to the Windy City from Louisville, KY for a photo. After kicking it around for a couple weeks I bought the photo-op package and booked a room. I mean c’mon, this was more than just a picture. It was a chance to stand next to and interact with a legend. Robert Englund in full Freddy makeup? It would literally be like standing next to him on the set of A Nightmare On Elm Street. Nothing with that kind of novelty carries a cheap price tag, and I knew if I passed on it I’d end up regretting it. Not to mention Robert Englund isn’t getting any younger. Despite the clever marketing on Flashback’s behalf, the “for the last time” hook prompted some concern only because Robert is nearing his 70’s. Realistically, this probably isn’t going to happen too many more times. So, I was all-in.
Here it is! The real thing!
Recently I was showing my wife some of wrestling’s greatest moments and spent an inordinate amount of time trying to find the original Eric Bischoff debut segment that aired on WWE Raw back in July 2002 where he walked out to AC/DC’s Back In Black in one of the most shocking and memorable moments in wrestling history. Whew, talk about impossible. I never knew this clip was so rare.
I found a few uploads across YouTube and DailyMotion, but all were the post-prod version of the segment where AC/DC was replaced with the in-house “I’m Back” song. Was a funny theme and good for Eric’s character once he got rolling in his run at WWE, but the company piping it in over the original audio not only killed the special feeling Back In Black created for the moment, but most of the overdub versions also muted the commentary of Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler which totally drains away the emotion and the genuine novelty we all felt when we first saw it. WWE.com features a flashback video where the commentary can still be heard, but again, without Back In Black, it just isn’t the same.
I went into my VHS wrestling vault and found that I still had the recording of the original broadcast. Not sure why YouTube vehemently blocks the video just because of the AC/DC song, but as with the Ricky Harris situation, I have no such qualms about hosting a harmless segment from over 10 years ago. Anyone offended can kind of like, deal with it I guess.
