Pax Romano from Billy Loves Stu has created this meme, which has been all around the horror-themed blogs. I copied it from All Things Horror. Here are my answers:
1: In Ten Words or Less, Describe Your Blog
What I read, write, watch, listen to or do.
2: During What Cinematic Era Where you Born?
A: The Classic Horror Era (late 30's to 40's)
B: The Atomic Monster/Nuclear Angst Era (the late 40's through 50's)
C: The Psycho Era (Early 60's)
D: The Rosemary's Baby Era (Mid to Late 60's)
E: The Exorcism Era (Early to mid 70's)
F: The Halloween Era (Late 70's to Early 80's)
G: The Slasher Era (Mid to late 80's)
H: The Self Referential/Post Modern Era (1990 to 1999)
E... and I watched some stuff that warped my wee brain at an early age.
3: The Carrie Compatibility Question:
Er... no one?
4: You have been given an ungodly amount of money and total control of a major motion picture studio - what would your dream Horror project be?
Giving horror filmakers a place to make things without tons of interference. And also try and get a reunion movie made for my all time favorite show, Friday the 13th: The Series.
5: What horror film "franchise" that others have embraced, left you cold?
Saw alternately intrigues me and pushes me away. But another is Zombie flicks. I love Night of the Living Dead, but my love for that genre drops the further away it gets from that movie. That said, I have Zombieland set to record tomorrow on DVR. Always hopeful!
6: Is Michael Bay the Antichrist?
Not a fan of Transformers or his other stuff, but I have to admit I was okay with his Texas Chainsaw Massacre redo, as I was with the Friday the 13th remake. Haven't seen the Nightmare on Elm Street redo yet.
7: Dracula, The Wolf Man, The Frankenstein Monster - which one of these classic villains scares you, and why?
Dracula. Frankenstein is just like a big, confused child and the Wolfman is tormented and trapped, but pretty much a wild animal. Drac knows who and what he is, and wants to keep on doing the evil he does.
8: Tell me about a scene from a NON HORROR Film that scares the crap out of you:
The flying monkeys tearing the beejeesus out of the Scarecrow in the Wizard of Oz.
9: Baby Jane Hudson invites you over to her house for lunch. What do you bring?
First I would leave a note somewhere so people know where I am. And I would bring a weapon, something easily concealed.
10: So, between you and me, do you have any ulterior motives for blogging? Come, on you
can tell me, it will be our little secret, and I won't tell a soul.
To share what I like and hopefully find people who like it as well. Nothing "secret" about it.
11: What would you have brought to Rosemary Woodhouse's baby shower?
12: Godzilla vs. The Cloverfield Monster, who wins?
Godzilla, and then he would make sure to be caught on camera, so he could brag.
13: If you found out that Rob Zombie was reading your blog, what would you post in hopes that he read it?
A plea for him to go back to music and leave movies alone?
14: What is your favorite NON HORROR FILM, and why?
Depends, I guess, on my mood. Love Rear Window. Love Overboard. Guess I will go with The Princess Bride as my favorite Non-Horror Film.
15: If blogging technology did not exist, what would you be doing?
Guess just watching movies and reading books.
