James Randi has been my ShorDurPerSav in the past. Anyone who sticks their finger in the eyes of that many knuckleheads is a-ok with me. And he never did come after no Subgenius, because he knew we were the real deal, a joke, and even realer deal.
I know we got musicians and people who juggle music-rights here, so I wanna know how significant it is that Tom Lehrer just made all of his lyrics public domain.
@johnhattan They're permissible if you're not a douche in their 20s when you wear them. It's clear you've duded your way into the right to wear that.
I know "Dude" Pendletons are for pretentious hipsters, but they are nice and warm. #Lebowski
In my quest to binge-watch every episode of Rocky & Bullwinkle, I have watched a lot of Fractured Fairy Tales. Thus-far, this one is the most surreal.
And yeah, Vincent Price was a scenery-chewing villain in "Song of Bernadette".
BUT, I am an alumnus of 12 years of Catholic school, and I had to watch that celluloid sleeping pill more than is necessary to last the rest of my life.
"Song of Bernadette" gets filed down below the Dr Goldfoot movies in a section called "fuck this movie!"
Curse my frop-addled brain, I forgot "House On Haunted Hill". Just to mix things up, I'll go with the colorized MST3K-ized version.
And I think I'm gonna prefer "The Great Mouse Detective" over "The Thief and the Cobbler". While Cobbler is certainly notable for Price's posthumous performance, the released movie is an ugly mess.
Great Mouse Detective isn't an interesting curiosity like Cobbler, but at least it's a finished movie.
For Halloween, I want a marathon of evil-scenery-chewing Vincent Price movies. And I need suggestions. . .

If there is one thing that covid has done for me, it has allowed me to finally catch up on all those old Hammer horror films and spaghetti westerns I've been meaning to watch.
