Recommended Posts

Shit, no Netflix over here. Ah well. I've seen Ted Bundy (the movie) enough times as is, plus this is coming up

I think this article sums up the attraction to Bundy pretty well. Bundy was college educated, handsome, and a charmer. He didn't look like what people thought of when they thought of a serial killer. If I'm not mistaken, he even offered to help police track the murderer of Adam Walsh. I'm still not 100% that it was indeed Otis Toole. I feel that may have been just to give John Walsh an answer after years of not knowing.

Watched "Teddy Pendergrass: If You Don't Know Me" last night, very good and I think it would be a good watch even if you don't know his music or general story. Teddy does a live version of a song that was going to be his crossover attempt and his version of it is jaw dropping.

We had a two hour delay this morning so I checked out Porndemic on Showtime On Demand.  It's about the HIV outbreak in the adult film industry in 1998.

I was already familiar with how unsettlingly business-like most adult stars talk when they're discussing their trade. 

I am not sure whether to feel sorry for Mark Wallace and Sharon Mitchell or bash their heads in with a baseball bat. 

They have both had more than their fair share of tragedy in their lives, but most of their wounds are self inflicted and they both seem to be quite the self righteous assholes in their interviews.

Caught about half of the Pendergrass doc and it was damn good, and damn sad. The possibility that he was actually sabotaged is terrifying and utterly disgusting. The man should have left Philly long before it had a chance to happen, but he had too much pride. 

Also saw the end of Porndemic too and talk about terrifying and utterly disgusting..,

I checked here and the upcoming thread and didn't see it yet. If I missed it, forgive me.

Slightly longer trailer:

Are there really enough new developments to justify this?

Can't wait to watch this one. I felt like the TVOne Unsung episode on Teddy was somewhat unexceptional, but then again, that's TVOne for you. I'm going to try to knock this one out and then watch the ReMastered: Sam Cooke doc sometime in the next couple of days.

If you're a fan, that live song happjack mentioned is gonna knock you on your ass. I'm not even an R&B fan and it floored me. If he had gotten that out he would have blew up into the stratosphere.

I know I'm late as hell to the Fyre Doc conversation, but my god that is perhaps the craziest thing I've ever watched.  The thing that really kills me about the entire ordeal is that they could have done this right.  If they would have taken their time and planned it out instead of choosing a random date there is no reason they couldn't have pulled it off.  The entire thing went downhill because they tried to pull off something that would take over a year in about 6 weeks.  The video they created to announce the Fyre Festival may be the single most impressive pieces of marketing I've ever seen.  If they would have just took their time and planned this festival for a weekend where there were enough rental properties for everyone, I think they could have pulled it off.  If they would have taken the time to plan out how much time and money it would take to put something like this together, what they were trying was possible.  It just wasn't possible in that time frame, on that island, on that weekend.  They just started making promises on top of ridiculous promises, before they actually figured out whether or not they could even begin to keep up with their promises.  When they realized they couldn't keep the promises, instead of walking them back, they started making more absurd promises.  Then he gets arrested, makes bail, and immediately started scamming those people again.  It just shows that he had no interest in actually putting together an actual music festival, he's just trying to scam people.
