Last weekend Nonagon took a little mini-tour to play a gig at the Iron Post in Urbana, Illinois. The town was buried, ball-deep in snow and was completely dead. All the old haunts have been sterilized, commercialized and bland-o-fied. From what we hear, gone are the days of Cham-bana's vibrant music scene. Sure, there are still some good bands down there, Triple Whip for example, and I hear the Poster Children are still alive, but the spark is gone.
I'm beginning to slowly make my way through my old VHS tapes in search of interesting video to post and have found a couple. First we have a short clip from Ben Stiller's old MTV show. The MTV show was pretty funny, much better than the Fox incarnation that came along later. He really has the mannerism of Shatner down, but Stiller can't do the voice at all. That's basically the problem with most of Stiller's sketch comedy.
Ahhh... I finally realized that I can digitize VHS tape into my PC using my video camera as a bridge. This has allowed me to give bring back Sniggles to the world. I have many more goofy videos on file. Expect more soon! Fear comes from Satan!
Hey, we just moved to a new place and, in the process, I have begun to assess my junk collection. I have decided to start selling off some of my stuff on eBay. I will be posting items over the next few weeks. Please check out my auctions!
For the past year or so I have been keeping a log of all the movies, books and media I have consumed throughout the year and giving personal ratings for everything. I can now present you with my top ranked items for the year of our Lord, 2006!
After waiting for weeks, the planets aligned (I got access to my parents huge screen TV), I was able to watch For Your Height Only. This movie is the "A-side" of a DVD double feature including the previously reviewed Challenge of the Tiger that was released by Mondo Macabro ealier this year.
Lately, I have been stocking up on Ennio Morricone movie soundtracks from the late sixties and early seventies. This been a pretty easy task since Dagored records has released a trio of great 3-disc Morricone boxed sets. Each filled with wonderful packaging and liner notes, and is well worth the $25 price tag.
I watched a great piece of eighties cheese this week, Bruce Le's (that's not a typo) Challenge of the Tiger. This movie is part of a Mondo Macabro double feature DVD along with vertically challenged spy thriller, For Your Height Only.
A reader of this site was kind enough to point out that you can restart a DVD from where you left off by holding the play button the during power-up sequence. I guess I should'a read the manual a bit more closely. Thanks.
