Geekfest Rants Episode 111: Battlestar Galactica.

Now Playing Podcast: The Living Daylights (1987)

The Forgotten Flix Podcast #84: Killer Klowns From Outer Space (1988)

Junk Food Dinner Podcast #132: The Howling (1981), An American Werewolf In Paris (1997), and Silver Bullet (1985).

For Yuletide, I just did a massive overhaul of my sign-up. I realized that it had been too long since I watched Pushing Daisies, and if I didn’t remember major character moments and/or little quirks I couldn’t possibly do them justice if that were my assignment. So I removed that, and replaced it with Fright Night (2011). I’m fine with writing any character for Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1992), so I moved that to the Bucket List section, and replaced that slot with Justice League Unlimited.

So as of now, my offers look like this: Fright Night (1985), Back to the Future, Fright Night (2011), Ghostbusters, Justice League & Justice League Unlimited (Cartoons), Addams Family (1991). Bucket List: Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992), Anno Dracula Series - Kim Newman, Beetle Juice (1988), Van Helsing (2004), Mannequin (1987), A Study in Emerald - Neil Gaiman, Lost Skeleton of Cadavra (2004), Soapdish (1991), The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: 1996.

If I watch Mockingbird Lane and enjoy it, I’ll throw that into the pile, too.

Posting this a bit early now, before I head out for a double bill showing of Frankenstein and Bride of Frankenstein at the local Cinemark. That’s about three hours, I do believe. Tomorrow night is Rifftrax Live.

Yuletide continues to take nominations until Wednesday, October 3rd. Just in case Ghostbusters and The Super Dictionary don’t end up being nominated, I’ve made a note to nominate them myself for next year’s Yuletide.

Meanwhile, for Yuletide research purposes, I have now watched Real Genius, The Green Hornet, and MirrorMask—in addition to Snow White And the Huntsman and The Cabin In The Woods a couple weeks back. The Monster Squad is up next.

He was a writer for Return of the Living Dead.

Tonight or tomorrow morning, we’re expected to get either an inch of snow--or a blizzard. Or nothing, since they've been wrong before. And so, since I’m prone to predicting this sort of thing by the intensity of migraines one to two days beforehand, everyone keeps asking if I’m in any pain yet. So they’ll know if they need to rush out to buy bread and milk, presumably. No, not yet. I’m the human barometer.

Dick Tufeld has passed away, at the age of 69, due to congestive heart failure. May he rest in peace. He was possibly most famous for being the voice of the robot who frequently said “Danger, Will Robinson!” on Lost In Space. According to IMDB, he was also the opening announcer for Spider-Man And His Amazing Friends, as well as The Time Tunnel and Voyage To The Bottom Of The Sea. I watched the last two on The Sci-Fi Channel, in its early days.
