Let's Gripe! (9271 new)

108 A guy I used to date thought Mellencamp's R.O.C.K. in the U.S.A. was I Love Seka in the U.S.A.

He didn't know much about pop music, but he sure knew his eighties porn stars.

108 My only memorable experience with an Ouija board was using it one night with my mother. She asked the question, "Will Mel go to bed now?"
I started pushing the planchette toward NO, while she was pushing it toward YES.
The spirits were on her side, and I ended up in bed.

108 My youngest son picked Friday night's movie and did a pretty darned good job - GRAVE ENCOUNTERS. The stars of a "Ghost Hunters"-type reality show find things are getting a bit too scary on their latest assignment.
Imagine Paranormal Activity, set in a creepy, abandoned mental institution...and there you have it.

Currently streaming on Netflix.
108 This must be the only group where a title garners over 140 comments before most members have even read the book!

I read this earlier in the year for the Pulp Fiction group. It was to be an example of neo-noir, but when I finished, I had NO idea what shelf to put it on. I finally settled on "thriller". Good writing, unforgettable characters - the religion-taken-to-extremes reminded me of Flannery O'Connor's Wise Blood.

If you're in the mood, Knockemstiff is even more disturbing than this book.

108 Can we add people we WISH would die? Like O.J. If I Did It: Confessions of the Killer Simpson...

108 Thanks, Greg. I read that book in 1988 and barely remember it, but it seems like a good guess. I passed on the info.

108 I would say your hubby's a keeper, Zombette.
Hope you had a great birthday.
How's the Weather? (3343 new)

108 My part of Pennsylvania missed the October snowstorm and got rain instead, but since then we have had the longest, loveliest stretch of beautiful weather that I can remember. Sun everyday, temps rockin' the 50s and 60s.
Mother Nature seems confused by the whole thing. My walk around the neighborhood today revealed that some trees are completely bare, others are just starting to change color and more than one forsythia bush is pushing out yellow blooms.

Tomorrow? Rain.

108 Insightful and well-researched article, Ryan. (Message 88)
The Pulitzer committee was sorely amiss in neglecting you. I will never take them seriously again.

108 Only 17 trick-or-treaters. Have tons of candy left over. Guess I'll have to eat it. Darn.

108 So, it wasn't the potato famine that did 'em in?

108 Wow! The Irish were way ahead of their time by realizing it would be hard for the newly reanimated dead to eat the flesh (and braaaains) of the living with big old rocks jammed in their mouths.

108 The question of just how the Byzantines dealt with Werewolves HAS been keeping me up nights.
Thanks for the links, Greg.

108 I'm normally not a fan of doin' stuff like this to your pet, but this zombie poodle is awesome:

108 My mother, who is so NOT a horror fan, was curious about all the hype and took my friend Linda and me to see "The Exorcist". I must have been about 12.
We got home very late and for some reason, Mom's front door key didn't work. We had to walk around the house to go in the back door.
That short walk, in total darkness, after seeing THAT movie, was probably the scariest experience of my life.
A few years later, I saw "Dawn of the Dead". I had trouble sleeping that night - it was like nothing I had ever seen before. Plus, one of the zombies was wearing a sweater just like the one I had on! That creeped me out!

108 Spent all morning in the kitchen making orange cake, pumpkin/white choc. chip bars, Texas Caviar bean dip, cinnamon/cranberry Chex mix and severed finger cookies for my book club tomorrow night. We will be discussing Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers.
Now all I need is a male stripper (to help us study anatomy, of course...) If anyone will be in the neighborhood and would like to volunteer, let me know. Some of the old broads in the group always bring lots of cash just in case something like this happens. Could be a nice chunk o' change... Any takers?

108 I've never cared for the suave, debonair vampire. What's scary about James Bond with fangs?
I like my bloodsuckers to be creepy-looking, like Nosferatu.

108 Well, technically this happened last night...stood in the back yard and watched the space station fly over. I still stand there slack-jawed and amazed, no matter how many times I've done this.

108 Lady Alice - are you for hire? I'm not overly fond of my mother-in-law...
