The Paddington Chainsaw Massacre

The Bear Necessities 
Paddington & Marilyn Burns

I thought we could all use a break from the chaos around us and join Paddington on a killing spree, say what?!?!

You read that correctly Minions, Paddington is wielding a mighty chainsaw and is now after Marilyn Burns in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre circa 1974!!! 

This comes courtesy of a brilliant photoshop artist I follow on Twitter Jaythechou, his renderings of Paddington inserted into various movies and TV shows is something that always entertains me on my Twitter feed (these days something has to.)

I do hope you enjoy homicidal Paddington as much as I, pleasant dreams...

C'mon Barbie Let's Go Party!

I Got A Brand New Pair Of Rollerskates
Margot Robbie & Ryan Gosling

Look skating down the Venice Beach Boardwalk it's the famous Barbie and her equally famous beau Ken!

This image was captured straight outta the set for the currently filming Barbie Movie. 

Now I know simply hearing that is a cringe moment for some of you out there, I too was skeptical at first. But seeing this photo makes me intrigued to say the least.

"Yes" Minions it peaks my interest. After all it is being directed by indie darling Greta Gerwig and was co-written by her an her equally well thought of indie filmmaker partner in life Noah Baumbach, so there!!!

Thus enjoy the fun of seeing Margot Robbie as Barbie and Ryan Gosling as Ken skating in some astoundingly loud neon outfits on skates, naturally. 

I know I did!!!

Make Better Friends


When Nomark released the debut Only Child Tyrant album Time to Run in 2019, Amon’s adventure into rock music at first seemed surprising, but long time followers of Tobin’s work were able to join the dots between the album’s pounding, explosive energy and earlier releases. District Geek described it thusly, “this album is a worthy successor to Chaos Theory, it is once again a sensational journey.”  A mix of alt-rock and surf rock electronica, the album was described as “an eye-opening piece of art.” (EDM.com) and the LA Times concluded Time to Run "rocks. Like, turn-it-up-to-11 rocks.”
Press for Only Child Tyrant
Time To Run is a refreshing clash of styles within electronic music, and everyone from fans of Tool to Trentemoller may find themselves with the record on repeat. It's an eye-opening piece of art.” – EDM.com
‘"Solid Gray Zebra" opens with what sounds like the hum of a shorted-out guitar cord, pushes forth a touch of distortion and rolls into a driving bass pattern that sounds ripped from an early Black Flag record. "Long Down" opens with a slow, twang-bar-accented guitar riff that echoes through Duane Eddy-style strums… “Time to Run” rocks. Like, turn-it-up-to-11 rocks.’ – LA TIMES
“It’s brilliantly bonkers… the wonderfully wonky riff of "Monkey Box" opens proceedings… "Eight Bit Psyche" sounds like Augustus Pablo and The Tornados jamming in some faraway corner of the stratosphere.”

Michael's Musings

That Was Just A Dream
Michael Shinafelt

For those of you ancient enough, remember that season of Dallas that turned out to be simply a dream. Let's click our heels together three times and wish the current Bullsh!t Court I mean "Supreme" Court into the corn field shall we? 100% we shall!!!

This is our country, not your church

Current Mood: Losing My Religion (honestly that happened a long time ago)

Don't bother me, I'm gonna can some salmon

Bring on the pentagrams!

Remakes should be made for bad movies, not classics

Marilyn Monroe arriving at a party, discuss...

I'm gonna name my band: Blindingly Obvious

Cameron Diaz is "Back In Action"

Woman Crush of the Week - Siouxsie Sioux, why? Because she exists. Perhaps Stranger Things will Kate Bush her.

At the end of the day I feel like a fried egg

I love the smell of ketchup in the morning

No one sported a wet T-Shirt like Jacqueline Bisset in The Deep. If you know, you know.

Looking forward to the inevitable mix and match outfit scene in the upcoming Barbie movie

Coming soon the grand reopening

Hump Day & Chill

"I Wish I Knew Hot To Quit You"
Jake Gyllenhaal & Heat Ledger

It's the last Hump Day & Chill of Pride Month Minions and we are gonna send it off with the iconic Brokeback Mountain starring the late Heath Ledger & Jake Gyllenhaal as gay cowboys, naturally.

Brokeback Mountain is regarded as a turning point for queer cinema and was critically acclaimed and was a huge box office success grossing $178 million worldwide on a $14 million dollar budget.

It was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Picture and lost to the far inferior and undeserving Crash.

The story goes like this:

"In 1963, rodeo cowboy Jack Twist (Jake Gyllenhaal) and ranch hand Ennis Del Mar (Heath Ledger) are hired by rancher Joe Aguirre (Randy Quaid) as sheep herders in Wyoming. One night on Brokeback Mountain, Jack makes a drunken pass at Ennis that is eventually reciprocated. Though Ennis marries his longtime sweetheart, Alma (Michelle Williams), and Jack marries a fellow rodeo rider (Anne Hathaway), the two men keep up their tortured and sporadic affair over the course of 20 years." 

So let's let out a big Hump Day & Chill ride em' cowboy for Brokeback Mountain shall we? Of course we shall!!!
