2019: July 24th Telekinetic Yeti - Colossus

Just discovered Telekinetic Yeti via photographer FlowerfromStatic's IG page, which you can link to and check out from her website HERE. Telekinetic Yeti's album Abominable is available on their Bandcamp HERE. I've been listening to it for several days straight - it's fantastic!


NCBD - yet another title on my already trimmed-down pull list ends this week with A Walk Through Hell #12. And the return of the now-quarterly Lazarus, a book that packs so much extra material in this format I would NEVER even think of giving it up:


Watchlist continued over the last few days as K and I continue to plow through Veronica Mars Season One; it's been so long since I've seen this, I forgot how good it is. I mean, I knew it was good, but really, the writing on this show is kind of ridiculous. Can't wait to get through to the new season on Hulu.

Other than that, I've been taking spare time here and there over the last month or so to re-watch/watch all of the Friday the 13th flicks in order. I've seen a bunch, not seen a few, and can never remember which is which, other than part one (for obvious reasons) and Jason Goes to Hell, which I stand by as my favorite of the series.

RE: the rest of the series, there are highs and lows. I'm a bit stuck at the moment on number IV, The Final Chapter. This one's rough, and I'm really only picking at it in ten minute chunks. That said, Part IV does contain the single greatest scene in motion picture history:

Hmmm.. I don't have time to decipher this at the moment, but interesting that it keeps coming up lately.

Here's my horror nerd ranking of the Friday the 13th films:
1. VI: Jason Lives
2. II
3. IV: The Final Chapter (in total agreement about the best cinematic scene of all time)
4. I
5. V: A New Beginning (this one is sleazy)
6. Jason X (much like your love of Jason Goes to Hell, i have to defend this one)
7. Freddy Vs Jason
8. III
9. VII: The New Blood
10. Remake
11. Jason Goes to Hell (this one just never did it for me)
12. VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan (this one could have been so superbly stupid and fun and it just ends up a drag)

Maybe one day we'll get a 13th entry. It'd be fitting.

So first, I have to thank you for all your engagement and apologize for seeing none of it until now. Blogger's comments sections have apparently changed or, I don't know. All I do know is I stumbled across a bunch and wanted to respond, regardless of the length of time it's been.

LOVE your list! I can totally see VI being your number one; honestly, I think my problem was watching so many in so short a period of time. I'm liable to pick back up where I left off at some point during the remainder of my time on Earth - I bowed out of VII after halfway. It's so bad - but I'll probably never revisit any of them again aside from maybe one, six, and Goes to Hell, which admittedly has its share of problems but really swings for the fences.
