About My Private Diaries ...

So I've been working on something.

See, when I'm not glued to the internets I spend a lot of my time writing. And I've written a LOTTTT! I have been writing in these private journals of mine for over a decade now. And in those books I think I have a rather interesting tale of love, heartbreak, violence, and one young man's journey from drunken, suicidal party guy to father of three.

I have decided to make these books public.

I'm doing that on my OTHER blog.

You should see it. I think it's worth a read.

Steve's Church-less Movie Of The (Halloween) Week: Part Two ...

I just finished seeing the original 1933 Universal horror film "The Invisible Man." I had never seen it before and it was absolutely amazing!

I was especially happy to see Una O'Connor in the film. I knew her as the crazy screeching old woman in Bride of Frankenstein. And now here she was as the crazy screeching old woman in Invisible Man. Nerd yay!

So here is Bride of Frankenstein for free for your All Hallow's Eve!

Enjoy ...

Yoinked from wikipedia and my own movie knowledge as well as a previous post of my own ...

"Bride of Frankenstein is a 1935 American horror film, the first sequel to Frankenstein (1931). Bride of Frankenstein was directed by James Whale and stars Boris Karloff as The Monster, Elsa Lanchester in the dual role of his mate and Mary Shelley, Colin Clive as Henry Frankenstein and Ernest Thesiger as Doctor Pretorius.

The film follows on immediately from the events of the earlier film, and is rooted in a subplot of the original Mary Shelley novel, Frankenstein (1818). In the film, a chastened Henry Frankenstein abandons his plans to create life, only to be tempted and finally coerced by the Monster, encouraged by Henry's old mentor Dr. Pretorius, into constructing a mate for him. As originally filmed, Henry and Elizabeth died fleeing the exploding castle. Whale re-shot the ending to allow for their survival, although Clive and Hobson are still visible on-screen in the collapsing laboratory. Whale completed his final cut, shortening the running time from about 90 minutes to 75 and re-shooting and re-editing the ending, only days before the film's scheduled premiere date.

Preparation began shortly after the first film premiered, but script problems delayed the project. Principal photography started in January 1935, with creative personnel from the original returning in front of and behind the camera. Bride of Frankenstein was released to critical and popular acclaim, although it encountered difficulties with some state and national censorship boards. Since its release the film's reputation has grown, and it is hailed as Whale's masterpiece.

Modern film scholars, noting Whale's homosexuality and that of others involved in the production, have found a gay sensibility in the film, although a number of Whale's associates have dismissed the idea. Gay film historian Vito Russo, in considering Pretorius, stops short of identifying the character as gay, instead referring to him as 'sissified' (sissy itself being Hollywood code for homosexual). Pretorius serves as a 'gay Mephistopheles', a figure of seduction and temptation, going so far as to pull Frankenstein away from his bride on their wedding night to engage in the unnatural act of creating non-procreative life. A novelization of the film published in England made the implication clear, having Pretorius say to Frankenstein 'Be fruitful and multiply.' Let us obey the Biblical injunction: you of course, have the choice of natural means; but as for me, I am afraid that there is no course open to me but the scientific way.'

A scene stealer in the film, Una O'Connor (October 23, 1880 – February 4, 1959) was an Irish actress who worked extensively in theater before becoming a notable character actress in film. A favorite of the director James Whale, among O'Connor's most successful and best remembered roles are her comic performances in Whale's The Invisible Man (1933) as the publican's wife and in Bride of Frankenstein (1935) as the Baron's housekeeper. She's awesome. But she played 'straight' roles too, such as the grieving mother of a captured IRA member in The Informer (1935) and appearing in Alfred Hitchcock's Murder! (1930)."

Steve's Church-less Movie Of The (Halloween) Week ...

Yoinked from the wikipedia monster ...

"The Invisible Man is a 1933 science fiction film based on H. G. Wells' science fiction novel The Invisible Man, published in 1897, as adapted by R. C. Sherriff, Philip Wylie and Preston Sturges, whose work was considered unsatisfactory and who was taken off the project. The film was directed by James Whale and stars Claude Rains, in his first American screen appearance, and Gloria Stuart. It is considered one of the great Universal Horror films of the 1930s, and spawned a number of sequels, plus many spinoffs using the idea of an invisible man that were largely unrelated to Wells' original story.

Rains portrayed the Invisible Man (Dr. Jack Griffin) mostly only as a disembodied voice. Rains is only shown clearly for a brief time at the end of the film, spending most of his on-screen time covered by bandages. In 2008 The Invisible Man was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being 'culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.' Rains' portrayal of The Invisible Man is considered to be one of the main Universal Monsters and is often listed with the likes of Dracula, Frankenstein, The Wolfman, The Mummy and Gill-man.

The film is known for its clever and groundbreaking visual effects by John P. Fulton, John J. Mescall and Frank D. Williams, whose work is often credited for the success of the film. When the Invisible Man had no clothes on, the effect was achieved through the use of wires, but when he had some of his clothes on or was taking his clothes off, the effect was achieved by shooting Claude Rains in a completely black velvet suit against a black velvet background and then combining this shot with another shot of the location the scene took place in using a matte process. Claude Rains was claustrophobic and it was hard to breathe through the suit. Consequently, the work was especially difficult for him, and a double, who was somewhat shorter than Rains, was sometimes used. The effect of Rains seeming to disappear was created by making a head and body cast of the actor, from which a mask was made. The mask was then photographed against a specially prepared background, and the film was treated in the laboratory to complete the effect."

... AND NOW, Reverend Steve and this blog are both PROUD to once again present today's Church-less Movie of the (Halloween) Week absolutely FREE! Because I'm awesome. But first, kids, lets all go over a few theater rules first.

Absolutely no talking is allowed during the feature presentation. Any and all talkers will be shot at with extreme prejudice and deadly precision.

Also, no cell phones or African-American berries going off in the theater. And NO TEXTING!

And be sure to dim your headlights (where applicable).



Random Work Thoughts, Family Pictures, And Some Free Music ...

-Ok. Seriously. Let's talk about this. Really. Give it to me straight: Did Jenny give Forrest Gump AIDS? That's what she died of, right? I asked a few people and one person said she died of cancer. That doesn't make sense because she says they don't know what it is and they can't cure it. They knew what cancer was in the eighties. So I am pretty sure it was AIDS that she got from her slut drug partying phase. And she probably gave it to Forrest. So the sequel should be "Forrest Gump 2: Forrest VS. Aids!" Just sayin'.

-I think I would be more successful as a woman. I don't think that's something you would EVER hear a man say. It's just that I have a rather strange personality. I am strange and funny and I crack jokes and I have a hyper, manic energy. It gets me in trouble. Now, if I was a long haired brunette with big tits then my crazy personality would be a plus. It would be attractive. It would make me hot, quite frankly. Hell, I'd bang me.

-Now, don't get me wrong. My storytimes here in Oklahoma have been going on since May and they have become a HUUUUUUGE hit! I'm getting twenty to thirty-five kids every week now watching my crazy ass storytimes and during my review I was credited with "revitalizing the store's storytime program!" It's great. The big difference between Sacramento storytimes and my Oklahoma storytimes is that I started off as a normal storyteller but I slowly built UP to the craziness. Here I actually STARTED OFF CRAZY! I jumped right into the crazy characters and the trying to fall asleep during stories and the loud wild crazy business. And kids loved it! I didn't go slow and work my way up. I didn't slowly work my way into crazy. I was crazy from the get go. And the kids are going nuts over it. THANK GAWD! I was worried that these repressed Okies would be afraid of me but no. I started off quick, running headfirst into the madness and the damn kids are going crazy trying to catch up to me. I'm a success again. I was worried that these rednecks were gonna hate me. But they love me. And that's awesome.

-At the Sorghum Festival (and it deeeeeeeply depresses me that I just typed that) my kids got me an amazing bottle of homemade Oklahoma root beer. Homemade! I cannot wait to taste it. SOOOOOO, because of this we may be posting a SEVENTH episode of The Root Beer Show ...

-At my last storytime, a biiiiig Halloween storytime costume party, I had about 33 kids and almost all of them were in costume. One kid was wearing a very creative Angry Bird costume. It was an all red outfit with an Angry Bird face on his sweater and an Angry Bird hat. I told him, and I think it was hilarious, I said "Seriously, if somebody comes here dressed as a PIG, I am going to pick you up and throw you into them!" #WIN

-Here is my Halloween costume. I spent roughly $0.00 on it. It was a very Ed Wood style costume. Also, the word "tattoo" is tattooed on my back. It's cheap creativity. I think it's just stupid enough to be funny ...

Pink Floyd: Goodbye Blue Sky
Phantom Of The Opera: Overture
The Mike Flowers Pops: Wonderwall
Rolling Stones: In Another Land
Sponge: Go Speed Racer Go
They Might Be Giants: Twisting
Richard Cheese: Bust A Move

-Here is my newest coloring page. It's my first freehand no tracing coloring page for storytime and I think it turned out nicely. I don't mean to toot my own horn but BEEP BEEP ...

That's about it.

Think I might post another free movie later.

So stay tuned ...

Steve's Church-less Movie Of The Week: Kick Ass Double Feature Time ...

I am posting a kick ass double feature today. It's been a while since we've had one of those.

The first feature is a bona fide classic. The second feature is one of my favorites and, no joke, literally features ME, Reverend Steve Galindo!

So enjoy ...

Yoinked from the almighty wikipedia goddess ...

"The Mummy is a 1932 horror film from Universal Studios directed by Karl Freund and starring Boris Karloff as a revived ancient Egyptian priest. The movie also features Zita Johann, David Manners and Edward Van Sloan. It was shot in Cantil, California, Universal City, and the Mojave Desert.

In the film, an Ancient Egyptian priest called Imhotep (Boris Karloff) is revived when an archaeological expedition led by Sir Joseph Whemple (Arthur Byron) finds Imhotep's mummy. Imhotep escapes from the archaeologists, taking the Scroll of Thoth, and prowls Cairo seeking the reincarnation of the soul of his ancient lover, Princess Ankh-es-en-amon.

Karl Freund, the cinematographer on Dracula, was hired to direct two days before filming. The film was retitled The Mummy. He cast Zita Johann, who believed in reincarnation. Filming was scheduled for three weeks. Karloff's first day was spent shooting the Mummy's awakening from his sarcophagus. Make-up artist Jack Pierce had studied photos of Seti I's mummy to design Imhotep, though perhaps notably, Karloff looked nothing like the mummy of Seti I in the film, instead bearing a resemblance to the mummy of Ramesses III. Pierce began transforming Karloff at 11:00 am, applying cotton, collodion and spirit gum to his face; clay to his hair; and wrapping him in linen bandages treated with acid and burnt in an oven, finishing the job at 7:00 pm. Karloff finished his scenes at 2:00 am, and another two hours were spent removing the make-up.

A lengthy and detailed flashback sequence was filmed but ultimately cut out of the film. This sequence showed the various forms Anck-es-en-Amon was reincarnated in over the centuries. Stills exist of the flashbacks, but complete footage has yet to be found. It was shot in Cantil, California, Universal City, and the Mojave Desert. The piece of classical music heard during the opening credits, taken from the Tchaikovsky ballet Swan Lake, was previously also used for the opening credits of Dracula."

And Now, Our Feature Presentation ...

I know I've shown this film here before.

Not only that but I (!!!) actually appear in this episode (!!!) as a coffee shop patron!

Enjoy ...

"A Bucket of Blood is a 1959 American comedy horror film directed by Roger Corman. It starred Dick Miller and was set in beatnik culture. The film, produced on a $50,000 budget, was shot in five days, and shares many of the low-budget filmmaking aesthetics commonly associated with Corman's work. Written by Charles B. Griffith, the film is a dark comic satire about a socially awkward young busboy at a Bohemian café who is acclaimed as a brilliant sculptor when he accidentally kills his landlady's cat and covers its body in clay to hide the evidence. When he is pressured to create similar work, he becomes murderous.

A Bucket of Blood was the first of three collaborations between Corman and Griffith in the comedy genre, followed by The Little Shop of Horrors, which was shot on the same sets as A Bucket of Blood, and Creature from the Haunted Sea. Corman had made no previous attempt at the genre, although past and future Corman productions in other genres incorporated comedic elements. The film is a satire not only of Corman's own films, but also of the art world and teen films of the 1950s. The film is noted as well in many circles as an honest, undiscriminating portrayal of the many facets of Beatnik culture, including art, dance and style of living."

About Last Sunday's Movie ...

So yesterday, on my day off, I finally got around to watching the "cult classic" film, and my last Church-less Movie of the Week, REPO: THE GENETIC OPERA.

And I'm still not sure.

I used quotation marks around the words "cult classic" because it seems as if the movie was trying WAY TOO HARD to be a cult classic. It seemed like it was trying too hard to be different.

And I'm just not sure if I liked it or not.

It's like the line in the first Pirates of the Caribbean movie: "This is either madness or brilliant."

I'm just not sure which one it is yet.

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

Ok, look, I've never seen this movie. Some say it's amazing and some say it's an unwatchable crapburger.

So let's see if we can get thru this.

Enjoy ...

Yoinked from the almighty wikipedia machine ...

"Repo! The Genetic Opera is a 2008 horror-rock opera musical film directed by Darren Lynn Bousman. The film is based on a play written and composed by Darren Smith and Terrance Zdunich. The film opened in a very limited release on November 7, 2008, on seven screens in Pasadena, Chicago, Mobile, Charlotte, Kansas City, Toronto and Ottawa.

The film took in an average of $3,250 per screen on its opening day. A 22-track soundtrack was released online on September 30, 2008, with an extended version containing 38 tracks released almost exclusively for download on February 20, 2009. The DVD and Blu-ray were released January 20, 2009.

To coincide with the film's release, Bousman, Smith and Zdunich, as well as various cast members, did a tour version of the film. Principal cast and crew also did extensive Q&A sessions following each screening. Because of strong ticket sales, a second and third touring session were added, in addition to a British tour across four locations. A Repo! Road Show was announced on January 28, 2012 in 10 cities. This show was similar to the Repo! Road Tour, except it was almost completely fan-run.

Repo! The Genetic Opera holds the record for the most songs ever composed into one film, with a total of 64. Some were cut from the final edit of the film. Joan Jett appears as a guitarist and Melora Creager of Rasputina plays cello on the soundtrack.

In 1996, Darren Smith had a friend who was going through bankruptcy and whose possessions were going into foreclosure. Inspired by this, Smith came up with the idea of a future where not only your property could be repossessed, but also your body parts. Smith and Terrance Zdunich collaborated ideas and plot lines to create The Necromerchant's Debt. The first version of Repo! was The Necromerchant's Debt, which told the story of a graverobber in debt to a Repo Organ Man. It was first performed at the John Raitt theater. After being such a success, creators Smith and Zdunich expanded on the universe to create all of the storylines that became Repo! The Genetic Opera.

Many changes were made, gradually, to the characters and music. For example, Rotti, in the earliest performances, was not the father to Luigi, Pavi, and Amber. Instead, he was a younger brother to Luigi and Pavi, while Amber was Luigi's daughter. Once Repo! was picked up by Lionsgate, shooting began on September 2007 in Canada. The film was scheduled to be released on April 25, 2008, but was pushed back to November 7. X Japan member Yoshiki Hayashi produced the soundtrack, along with composing one extra track for the film. He also serves as one of the film's producers. Due to Lionsgate's lack of promotion, director Bousman and creator Zdunich did much of their own promotion.

The film received generally negative reviews from critics; critics polled on the review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes gave the film a score of 32% 'Rotten' with the site's consensus saying, 'Bombastic and intentionally gross, Repo! The Genetic Opera has a unique style but lacks the wit and substance to be involving.' However, users gave the film a score of 72%. Kyle Smith of The New York Post concluded, 'There probably aren't enough futuristic Goth rock musicals, but Repo! The Genetic Opera is weak on a couple of things a musical needs: music and lyrics.'

Hilton's performance as Amber won her the Golden Raspberry Award for Worst Supporting Actress.

Repo! made $53,684 in its opening weekend, a $6,711 average per theater. The film's full 11-theater release earned $146,750 in the United States, and an additional $41,376 internationally, for a total of only $188,126 worldwide."

Rory Gilmore's Naked Boobs ...

My wife originally had to force me to watch Gilmore Girls with her but eventually I watched with her with no coercion, mainly due to the great writing, the constant pop culture references, and the hot chicks, mainly Alexis Bledel who played young Rory Gilmore.

Now Rory is all grown up and has a reoccurring part in that insufferably hip show Mad Men. And apparently she's all sorts of half naked in it. And she looks hot as shit.

So here you go. Some pictures for you.

And, as always, you're welcome ...

By the way, this is post #1,999 on this blog.

I'm nearing two thousand posts.

Not sure whether to celebrate or cry.

Also, and I hope you are still reading this part here, I have been doing storytimes for kids every week for well over 11 years. And in celebration of this I've compiled a big photo album of over 50 pictures and hilarious stories from over a decade of entertaining children and it would be a personal favor to me if you could check it out and maybe share it ...


Seriously, if you could plllllleeeeease share the photo album on your Facebook page. It would only take a second and I reeeeeally want to get my name out there. So a quick share would really help me out. Plus, it's pretty cute and fairly hilarious.

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

Yoinked from the almighty wikipedia machine of knowledge ...

"The Midnight Meat Train is a 2008 horror film based on Clive Barker's 1984 short story of the same name, which can be found in Volume One of Barker's legendary collection Books of Blood. The film follows a photographer who attempts to track down a serial killer dubbed the 'Subway Butcher' and discovers more than he bargained for under the city streets.

The film was directed by Japanese director Ryuhei Kitamura and stars Bradley Cooper, Brooke Shields, Ted Raimi, and Vinnie Jones. Its script was adapted by Jeff Buhler, the producer was Tom Rosenberg of Lakeshore Entertainment, and it was released on August 1, 2008.

Producer Joe Daley, a long-time friend of Buhler's, brought the two writers together and helped develop the script, along with producers Anthony Diblasi and Jorge Saralegui, for their newly minted horror factory The Midnight Picture Company. Currently The Midnight Picture Company is busy shooting Book of Blood, the next film adaptation from the anthology of short stories that spawned The Midnight Meat Train.

The idea for the film was created by Clive Barker, the acclaimed horror writer who wrote and directed the now-classic horror flick Hellraiser, which like The Midnight Meat Train was also based on a short story in Books of Blood.

Initially, The Midnight Meat Train was set for a May 16, 2008 release but was delayed. Ultimately, the film's release on August 1 was limited to the secondary market - of which only 100 screens showed it - with plans for a quick release on DVD. The world premiere was on July 19, 2008 at the Fantasia Festival in Montreal, in the presence of director Ryuhei Kitamura. An internet campaign was started by several horror websites to draw attention to the scaled-down theatrical release.

Barker was angry with Lionsgate's treatment, believing that the studio's newest president Joe Drake was essentially shortchanging other people's films in order to focus more attention on films like The Strangers, where he received a producing credit: 'The politics that are being visited upon it have nothing to do with the movie at all. This is all about ego, and though I mourn the fact that The Midnight Meat Train was never given its chance in theaters, it’s a beautifully stylish, scary movie, and it isn’t going anywhere. People will find it, and whether they find it in midnight shows or they find it on DVD, they’ll find it, and in the end the Joe Drakes of the world will disappear.'

When Joe Drake came on board at Lionsgate the first thing he did, in time-honored Hollywood fashion, was throw his predecessor's remaining projects under the bus. First he moved around the release date for The Midnight Meat Train; then he announced that the film would only arrive on 100 screens before a quick video release.

Mr. Barker took subsequently to his Web site and wrote, 'There have been signs for a long while that Lionsgate, the company releasing the movie, was going to screw around with it,' before encouraging fans to contact Mr. Drake directly. Horror fans, who don't get much respect anyway, were feeling particularly persecuted as R-rated horror films regularly bomb at the box office and lightweight, PG-13-rated horror movies for teens gross buckets of cash.

Critical reaction to The Midnight Meat Train has been mostly positive. Cinematical called the film 'easily the best Clive Barker adaptation since the first Hellraiser film' and the film currently holds a 71% "fresh" rating on Rotten Tomatoes."

Look, What I'm Saying Is ...

So I spent the majority of the vice presidential debate trolling upset republicans on twitter. It was awesome. People hate me.

I just love stirring up the shit. I love how easily people get upset, how easy it is to push people's buttons. I love seeing rich white republicans get pissed off.

I just love fucking with people, I guess. I'm just an asshole like that.

What am I doing now, you might ask?

Well, I certainly am not easily hacking spotify into allowing me to download whatever song I want to!

Because that would be bad, illegal, and extrrrrrrrremely easy to do with the handy directions in the new Autumn 2012 issue of The Hacker Quarterly magazine, available at your local Barnes and Noble.

So instead of that business I'm just sitting here reading my bible and praising white skinned Jesus.

That is all.

In celebration of the special day I bring to you free music downloads and a bunch of crazy videos including Ed Wood's classic film Plan 9 from Outer Space and, because it's so god awful, the absolutely horrible new Tom Cruise musical ROCK OF AGES! Enjoy ...

Reverend Steve and his (THEN) 2-Year-Old Emerald: HAPPY BIRTHDAY to WOOD!

Yes, my friends. It's that time of year again!

Today, October 10th, is Woodmas. On this day, our savior, late transvestite filmmaker Edward D. Wood Jr., was born!

For more Woodmas madness, follow Steve on twiter!


This is our CHRISTMAS and it is the holiest day in the Woodian calendar, the heavenly Ed Wood Christmas, the day that Edward D. Wood Jr. was born! Rejoice, oh faithful Woodites of the world, for on this day the transvestite director Eddie Wood was born! Rejoice, drink, smoke, be merry, and spend the day celebrating the life and films of Ed Wood! Give gifts that aren't great and do those things that you do not normally do that make you feel good. Today is a day for feeling good and partying, living as Ed Wood lived. Woodmas is our Christmas, except without all that bullcrap about church. More drinking and less praying. That's Woodmas.

Woodmas was first coined by Reverend Steve Galindo in 1997. It was celebrated by Steve and his older brother Joe by drink king two full bottles of Jack Daniels and watching Ed Wood movies. Since then, Steve has celebrated Woodmas every year with much drinking. This is the fourth year Steve's celebrated Woodmas in Sacramento and the third year he's celebrated it with his own family.

There aren't a lot of crappy rituals on Woodmas, although it is unofficially customary on Woodmas to wear the clothes of the opposite sex to remember Ed throughout the day. It doesn't necessarily have to be full on drag, mind you. Maybe it can just be a pair of panties or a jock strap or a nice cotton thong or something. Or it could be full on drag, what the hell. It's up to you, however you want to remember Ed Wood best.

Here's the best part of Woodmas ... no one who is either a legally baptized Woodite or a casual Ed Wood fan should have to work on this day. Hell yeah! I mean, this is Woodmas, people. It transcends religious beliefs and cultural barriers. This is a holy day of the biggest order. Some people might laugh at you or call you a freak and the people at your work might not believe you and your family might think you're insane, but this is the day that we thank the fates that allowed Ed Wood to be here on this earth to make his amazing, mind-blowing films, his gift to us.


When I was in high school I always got upset that there were all these religious types that got days off school when I had to stay in school and work my brown ass off. All these Catholics and Christians getting the day off because of the Holy Feast of Saint Jayhoobah Alderan of Entitilitis and all those mormons and jews out there getting days off to go pray and stuff while I still had to sit on my stupid desk and listen to stupid teachers drone on and on about stupid laws. That was a ripoff, in my point of view. I wanted days off, too!

So I made a list of important dates in the life of Ed Wood and his fellow actors so that I could get a few days off school. The same went for when I got my first job, a horrible video store job that I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy or even Michael Jackson, that young cancer-patient-molesting freak. So once I created my own religion I made this old list of important dates legal holy days so that those that claim Woodism as their official religion could flip off the Christians and the catholics and get few days off of work for their OWN religion. And I've been doing it ever since, with today, Woodmas, being the highest holy day of the entire year!
