  1. The weekend movie club I'm a part of is coming up, so I asked for any suggestions. One of the pals asked for "Maniac." I know he meant 1980's film, but, damn dude, you've watched it countless times and have your own copy. So, I'm making a "Maniac" theme. "Maniac" (1934), "Neon Maniacs," and either "Maniac Cop" 1 or 2. Probably 2.

    Don't worry though, I imagine "work out" will skew those numbers pretty low.

    I went with the laugh react, but I also want to give a big "THANK YOU!" Same boat.

    I think what sells it - at least for me - is the point where Miz says, "... because I need to talk to you REAL QUICK." It's that emotional stammering, and I've been there before in heated conversations, where you're on the point of losing your grip on the English language because you're so pissed off. Scripted promos are zingers, flippant jokes, cool one-liners. Pure emotion is never so linear; pure, unfiltered emotion always leans against the line of physical action. It draws you in because you know, instead of hitting the title, throwing the mic, throttling the belt, you just know that Miz wants to hit and throw and throttle somebody.

    Interesting postscript to this: I've worked in outpatient mental health since 2002. In the hodunky, podunky wild of rural SC, it's frequent that I get to do a triage screening of someone who basically tries to feign mental illness for the sake of getting a (often undeserved) disability benefit. When the IED promo came out, I turned to my friends and said, "I bet you we'll have people come to the clinic this week saying, 'I have Intermittent Explosive Disorder, I wanna get a check started.'" And yes. They did. For a month. After a hearty eye roll, I would usually stop them and say, "Well, Randy Orton has that too, and he's turned that into a successful wrestling career. So, get back on the job hunt! There's still hope for you, soldier!"

    Aw, my mom was "ya ya" to my daughter. Not because we're Greek, mind you; my mom was just big on cultural appropriation.

    pecs, pecs, pecs, pecs ...
  11. I have a weird project I'm doing with my films. I got the idea watching one of those "How It's Made" type shows on bookbinding. I'm writing a movie review guide slash personal memoir/journal for my daughter's eyes only, as I watch my way through my movie collection. Sometimes it's part thesis, then it swerves into a wild recollection of some asinine adventure of my youth. She'll get the collection in my passing, plus, hopefully, a Videohound-type of movie guide biography of her daddy, bound like a library book. That she can later sell in a garage sale, if she tires of it.
  12. I imagine it's over now, but Diabolik DVD had an Arrow pre-order sale last week. Picked up Schlock (due out in October, ugh). I threw on another pre-order, the AFGA/Bleeding Skull release of "Ninja Zombie" (also out in October).
