(Victoria Winters and Angelique are out, as neither appeared in the film.)
So now I’m torn between what won the poll—Suspiria—and House of Dark Shadows. Whichever I choose, the other will be nominated next year. Either way, it’s a horror related fandom that gets the slot, so there’s that.
Vote yes or no
Which Should I Switch My Nomination To?
Murder By Death (1976)
With Suspiria, it would turn my nominations into a nice little horror trifecta, as the other two were Dark Shadows (1991) and Fright Night (1985). On the other hand, I also love Murder By Death (1976), too.
Given the fact that those on LJ can’t vote in this Dreamwidth poll, simply write in what you wish to vote for in the comments over there.
I didn’t have room for Murder By Death (1976), unfortunately. So if anyone out there has an extra slot available, please consider nominating it.
(Sadly, I don't have a Murder By Death icon, but I do have one for Clue.)
I’ve had a Word document filled with ideas since before authors were revealed last year, so I’m ready. I just have to narrow my choices down to three fandoms, because I really want to finally throw Bride of Boogedy (1987) out there, just to see what comes of it.
Does anyone know of a way to fix this? If you’re on the Dreamwidth side of things, just follow the cross-post link and go to my journal. You’ll see what I mean. SeanDC confirmed that he sees it, too, along with an extra blue bar.
As a result of this, since it’s on the friends page side of things, too—I just have to guess if the top comment is an rss feed that I follow over on Dreamwidth, or if it’s a post by someone somewhere. If I see it at all.
If it is an issue with S1 and I need to switch to S2, I would hope to get the style to something similar to what I have on Dreamwidth.
ETA: Oh, here’s how it should normally look (as you can see, using my long-abandoned Insanejournal as an example).
In honor of him, I’ll finally get around to watching one of these: The Hills Have Eyes (1977), Deadly Blessing (1981), or Red Eye (2005).
I’ll have to wait and see if Me-TV ends up airing a few of her better episodes from Batman and the one from Star Trek this Saturday—it’s what they did when Nimoy passed away.
So I’ll be tracking down those two films later, since I’ve been meaning to watch them for a while. He was also Sherlock Holmes in The Hound of London, and had a role in one of the 1989 versions of Masque of the Red Death (the one with Adrian Paul, which I've never watched).
...I may be one of the few to recall him from Lobster Man From Mars (1989) as Professor Plocostomos.
Dick Van Patten passed away at the age of 86, due to complications from diabetes. May he rest in peace. I never watched Eight Is Enough, so I believe I mostly recall him from Robin Hood: Men In Tights, Spaceballs, and The New Adventures of Pippi Longstocking (1988).
I just wanted to spread the word, in case anyone on my friends list happened to use them to keep track of their passwords.
When I didn’t know who he was when I was small, I loved his evil voice in The Last Unicorn. When I was 10 or 11, I fell in love with his Dracula movies, and progressed onward from there through as much of his horror and assorted work as I could find. He was great in almost everything he happened to appear in no matter how truly awful the material around him may have been, and he will be greatly missed.
Does anyone else remember his role in the 90's version of The Tomorrow People? At the time, I loved it.
(I don't have a Christopher Lee as Dracula icon--just one of Nosferatu, and a Bela Lugosi icon, so the former will have to do.)
Betsy Palmer passed away from natural causes at the age of 88. May she rest in peace. She was best known as Mrs. Pamela Voorhees, Jason’s mother, in the first Friday the 13th.
Alberto De Martino has passed away at the age of 85. May he rest in peace. MST3K fans may know two of his movies: Puma Man and Operation Double 007. While I loved the former, I haven’t yet seen the latter episode, so I’ll be tracking it down.
According to IMDB, the show started in 1984, so I would have been 3. I mostly remember Bram’s beard (perhaps it scared me, I don't know. I was 3)--the strange elephant, and a bit of the Skinnamarink song.
Since they couldn't put down anything due to the rain, beneath all the snow is a layer of at least an inch of ice.
They've shut down I-24 and the area has been declared a disaster area. According to the local news, the National Guard is here. So it's almost 2009's mess all over again, minus the trees falling (there aren't any now in the spot I'm in) and power outages (which hopefully stays that way).
The day before this hit, I went to Wal-Mart, and a couple other places, so we currently have enough food. Dad is trying to dig a small path to the van, in case of an emergency. (It hits -4 degrees tonight) We can't open the front door just yet, so it's required. A quick check shows the snow is too high to back the car out of the garage.
I rescheduled that dentist appointment (canceled due to closing for too much snow) to next Wednesday. I wonder if I have to cancel that one, too...then again, it's supposed to be 56 that day.
ETA: Okay, the depth of snow behind the van is 20 inches. Dad measured it. So it's all the snow that fell, plus more that blew back there besides.
ETA 2: A snow plow attempted to navigate this terrible road. He's now in the ditch, unable to get out, and waiting for a rescue. Usually they wait until we're thawing out before they get around to plowing around here.
