Various Random Whatnots ...

-My youngest does NOT have chicken pimples OR the mumps. she had an allergic reaction to some Walmart meds we gave her for a small fever. Lame ass.

-I have posted a new little blurb of a post on my other blog, Esteban Galindo's Stupid Blog. It's about my parents and an ex-girlfriend of mine.

-Woodmas is only a few days away and I'm very excited. But I'm not excited about the NINE DAYS I have to work, nine days IN A ROW, to get my Woodmas time off. It's a work marathon for my love of Wood and it is absolutely lame.

-It's almost October and finally it feels like fall. Dark, windy, cold, and above all the feeling that things are going to get moodier and bleaker all up in here. Is bleaker a word? I think it is. Well, I for one welcome the arrival of fall. I dress better in cold weather, I believe.

-I thought my fractured finger was supposed to get BETTER!

-My banner up there, the one with The Brain That Wouldn't Die poster artwork, HOW FUCKING AWESOME IS THAT? I just like to stare at it and marvel in my apparent photoshop awesomeness.

-I don't think I cut myself anymore, that is to say I'm fairly certain I'm done with all that. And i don't really think about killing myself ever. But a suicide ATTEMPT? Oh, man, that would be AWESOME! I dream, fantasize, about a big, major suicide attempt. I dream about coming to at the hospital and people standing around my bed crying, wondering why I did it, vowing to treat me better from now on. I dream about a big ass card from work signed by all these people I work with and hardly know, maybe something smart ass-ish written by Nick. My wife holding my hand. That's a DREAM to me, everyone coming together around me and feeling bad they neglected me. I don't think I'm getting too neglected right now, but the love and respect I would get from a suicide attempt just makes me want to slice my wrist right now in anticipation. I don't want to DIE. No, fuck that! No, I just want to fuckin' ATTEMPT it to that everyone I know gets all weepy eyed and shit. Is that bad? Yeah. I know it is.

Well, on that sad note I'm off now to start my pre-Woodmas work marathon.

School Days ...

Natasha is at urgent care with Isabela. Her red bumps and itches means either chicken pox or measles.

This means that I'm in charge of Emerald's schooling today. Professor Steve, the substitute teacher.

It's incredible. I'm hardly teaching her anything. In all reality it is SHE who is teaching ME how to teach HER!

She is just so damn smart! I love her to deaths.

F- My Life ...

First my kids had strep throat.

Then Emerald had an allergic reaction to the medication she was taking and she broke out into hives.

Then the steroids she was taking weakened her immune system, worsening her asthma, making her wake up every night with massive, serious asthma attacks.

Emerald also has a bad, nasty, hideous cough.

Then I fractured my finger badly.

Then my feet get so dry and flaky that a huge CHUNK of flesh peels off my right foot, causing every step to hurt like mad.

Now we're pretty sure Isabela has chicken pox.


Steve's Church-Less Movie Of The Week, Part 2 ...

Yoinked from the wiki and spiced with a number of other crap sites ...

"The Amazing Colossal Man is a 1957 black-and-white science fiction film, directed by Bert I. Gordon and starring Glenn Langan. The film revolves around a 60 foot mutant man produced as the result of an atomic accident. Distributed by American International Pictures (AIP) at the top of a program double-bill with The Cat Girl, the film was followed by a sequel, War of the Colossal Beast, which appeared in 1958.

A "Shock Theater" perennial since it was first released to television in the early 1960s (stretch-framed to pad out its running time), The Amazing Colossal Man is firmly in the 'So Bad It's Good' category. The special effects are adequate, but the dialogue is ridiculous-in fact, if we didn't know better, we'd say that the film was intended to be funny.

The film and its sequel have been referenced in a number of comedy productions, including the television series Mystery Science Theater 3000 and an episode of Robot Chicken when a large bald giant, wearing a sarong as a diaper, is struck in the crotch with a wrecking ball as he terrorizes a city, as part of the 'Ode To The Nut Shot' sketch.

This movie, like The Beast of Yucca Flats (1961), Frankenstein, and The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde inspired Stan Lee and Jack Kirby to create the Incredible Hulk character. Glen's line, 'Why don't you ask me what it feels like to be a freak?' is sampled in Rob Zombie's song 'Demon Speeding', off the 2001 album The Sinister Urge.

The ending of the film is a bit anticlimactic, and Glenn’s big rampage thru the streets of Las Vegas doesn’t last nearly long enough, but overall the movie does an pretty admirable job of keeping the stupidity coming, so as never to quite lose the audience's interest. It’s still far from being the best 50’s giant monster flick, or even the most fun, but it carries the Mystery Science Theater 3,000 stamp of approval nevertheless."

Steve's Church-Less Movie Of The Week ...

Yoinked from wikipedia ...

"The Brain That Wouldn't Die, also known as The Head That Wouldn't Die, is a 1959 science-fiction/horror film directed by Joseph Green and written by Green and Rex Carlton. The film was completed in 1959, but was not released until May 3, 1962. A scientist develops a means to keep human body parts alive. When he unexpectedly must use his discovery on someone close to him, events do not go as planned. This film was originally filmed under the title The Black Door, but the title was changed in 1962 for theatrical release.

The monster in the closet is played by Eddie Carmel in his first "cinematic role". Carmel was a well-known Palestine-born circus attraction who worked under the name 'The Jewish Giant'. He is the subject of a photograph by Diane Arbus entitled 'The Jewish Giant at Home with His Parents in the Bronx, NY, 1970'. The film was featured (and parodied) in the Steve Martin comedy The Man with Two Brains, along with Donovan's Brain.

The Brain that Woudn't Die was the first movie watched by Mike Nelson in Mystery Science Theater 3000 (episode 513). Jan in the Pan is the irreverent nickname given to the female lead post-accident by the characters on the show. Jan in the Pan appears in the out-of-theater segments of the episode.

In 2006, the movie was adapted into a live stage production by Last Rites Productions, a Portland, Oregon theatre company. The company had previously adapted Manos: The Hands of Fate, a subject of another Mystery Science Theater 3000 episode.

The fact that several closeup shots were clearly shot separately from the scenes they were placed in - the scene would shift from a living room, for example, to a blank, dark grey room when a closeup shot of a character is taken - elicited shouts of 'Help! I'm in another dimension!' from the MST3K cast."

And here, as a compare and contrast, is the original movie artwork and the picture that I modified and eventually used for this blogs most recent banner. I made it myself. It took a little over a half hour of work to make the original poster artwork look the way that I wanted it to. It's pretty sweet, I think ...

Me And Ed Wood ...

To quote Ed Wood, "My mind's in a muddle, like in a thick fog." That pretty much sums up my life.

Things are ok, I guess. Work has let up, my health is ok. My finger is healing and the chunk of skin that got ripped off of my right foot is healing nicely. My home life is heartwarming and cute. And regular tv is back on. Flashforward was pretty awesome. Things are good.

But I can't help but feel as if there's something wrong on the horizon, that something's behind me, that the wheels are turning behind the set and whoever's pulling the strings and talking behind my back has some seriously bad shit planned for me in the coming weeks.

Maybe it's just the bipolar pills I'm taking and the anti-anxiety pills I'm taking. Maybe they're just filling me with unnecessaryparanoia.

But, and this is SO me, even though everything is good MY mind is stuck on thinking about what fucked up stuff is coming up for me in the future.

I guess that's very Criswell of me.

Isabela's Random Birthday Party Pictures ...

Steve's Church-Less Movie Of The Week (But On A Monday Instead Of Sunday) ...

Yoinked from wikipedia ...

"Theatre of Blood is a 1973 horror film starring Vincent Price as vengeful actor Edward Lionheart and Diana Rigg from The Avengers as his daughter Edwina Lionheart. It was directed by Douglas Hickox.

This film is considered by some to be among Price's greatest work, and it was a personal favorite of his, as he always wanted the chance to act in Shakespeare, but found himself being typecast due to his work in horror films. Before or after each death in the film, Lionheart recites passages of Shakespeare, giving Price a chance to show his acting ability, delivering choice speeches such as Hamlet's famous fifth soliloquy ('To be, or not to be, that is the question...'); Marc Antony's self-serving eulogy for Caesar from Julius Caesar ('Friends, Romans, Countrymen, lend me your ears...'); 'Now is the winter of our discontent...' from the beginning of Richard III; and finally, the raving of the mad King Lear at the loss of his faithful daughter.

Some of these sequences take place in an abandoned theatre that Lionheart has used as his hideout, which is where the title of the film originates (it was originally to be called Much Ado About Murder). Some critics disliked the film—as you might expect—as Price made Lionheart such a sympathetic character, especially compared to his enemies, the critics.

The film was adapted for the stage by British company Improbable, with Jim Broadbent playing Edward Lionheart and Rachael Stirling, Diana Rigg's daughter, playing her mother's role of Edwina. The play differs from the film as the critics are from the major British newspapers (examples including The Guardian and The Times), and it is all set within an abandoned theatre. The play is also set in the seventies rather than contemporary times, and makes fun of the politics of theatre at that time. Another change is the reduction in the number of deaths, and the police characters are more or less entirely removed. The killings based on Othello and Cymbeline have been omitted, presumably because they would have to take place outside the theatre due to their impact on secondary characters. Also, the name of Lionheart's daughter is changed from 'Edwina' to 'Miranda' to enhance the Shakespearean influence. This adaptation ran in London at the National Theatre beween May and September 2005 and received mixed reviews."

Emergency Results ...

It was an allergic reaction to the medication she was taking for her strep throat. They took her in at midnight and shot her up with benadryl and by 1am she was checked out.

Thank god. Freaked the hell out of us there.

Emergency ...

It's 12:30 in the morning and my wife just took our daughter Emerald to the emergency room. She's breaking out in a rash that itches all over and parts of her (hands, feet, ect.) are starting to swell. We think it's a reaction to the flu shot she got on friday.

So I'm at home with a sleeping Isabela while my wife braves it out at the hospital with Em.

I'm very worried.
