Stomp Tokyo's 10th Anniversary!

This week marks the 10th anniversary of Stomp Tokyo. If you want to read more about that, check out Chris' retrospective.

What does that mean for this blog? Well, the big thing is that I'm going to be posting all my genre TV and movie reviews at the new relaunched Stomp Tokyo 2.0. (Stomp Tokyo 0.2 if you're a Cyberman.)

Obviously, that takes away most of what I was doing here. I'm planning on changing the purpose, and name, of this blog in the near future. I also want to switch over to Wordpress, but if that sounds familiar it's because I tried it before and failed spectacularly. Maybe I'll have better luck this time.

Cult Movies Podcast #12

We have just posted the 12th Cult Movies Podcast here. This is actually our third attempt to record a podcast with Chris Magyar. The first was killed by bad audio quality, and the second fell victim to technical difficulties, assuming you count not hitting the record button a technical difficulty. What I'm trying to say is that Magyar is our good luck charm.

Anyhoo, in the episode we talk about William Shatner's secretions and the history of Snuff.

Cult Movies Podcast #11

We just posted our newest podcast, Chris and I are joined by Dr. Freex of the Bad Movie Report. Subjects include why there was no podcast #10 (we suck), and what the most anticipated movie of next year is (Snakes on a Plane). Also, Chris interviews Noel Gross.

One thing I'm kind of sad we lost on episode #10 was a really good point Chris Magyar made about the upcoming Gamera movie, Gamera: The Little Braves. As you can see in the trailer, the name of the turtle that grows up to be Gamera is "Toto." While I never made the connection, Magyar noted that that may be a Wizard of Oz reference, and the whole thing may be a dream. I think he may be right.

New Stomp Tokyo Review - Magic Christmas Tree

With a couple hours to we posted Stomp Tokyo's Christmas review, Magic Christmas Tree. I wonder, are there many other Chirstmas movies that start on Halloween?

Cult Movies Podcast #7

As per usual I'm a couple days behind, but the newest Cult Movies Podcast is up here . In it we consider just how inaccurate a movie's title can possibly be, and fix all of Hollywood's problems. Also, Shatner; Is there anything he can't do?

Cult Movies Podcast #6

I forgot to mention it a couple of days ago, but the 6th episode of the Cult Movies Podcast when live here. In this episode I make a totally funny joke about Suddenly Susan that Chris probably edited out.

I'm thinking about doing a supplementary podcast for this blog. I want to get better at that kind of public speaking, and the only way I'm going to do that is by practicing. I also want to learn the technical end of things. I''ll probably use GarageBand, at least until I find something better.

New Cult Movies Podcast

The fifth Cult Movies Podcast is up here. I actually think we're getting better at this. The technical aspects are still rough, but I think the chatter is a lot better in this one. Hear my random thoughts on classic Pam Grier films. (As if there were any other kind.)

Fourth Podcast Up

The fourth Cult Movies Podcast is up here. It only sounds like we have monkeys working the mixing board. We wish! Monkeys would bring a level of competence to the proceedings we're frankly not capable of.

Catching Up

Just a couple of new things to mention. Last week we posted our third Cult Movies Podcast. We still have daunting technical issues to solve, but I think we're getting better. The fourth one should be up soon.

I took the time to write a review of Paul Schrader's Dominion: Prequel to the Exorcist (2005), a movie that's far more interesting as the subject of a story that it is as a story. God save us from boring non-horror horror movies.

I think my next big review may be of Zero Woman: Red Handcuffs. It isn't much of a movie, but I like writing about 1970's Japanese sleaze.

What I've learned from Frappr

My Frappr map has been an interesting exercise. For example, this blog is apparently huge in Scandinavia. I guess people living in northers Norway get up in the morning, look at the frozen hellscape right outside their windows, and then decide to read that blog where a guy takes cheap shots at Mel Gibson. Can't say I blame them. I wouldn't want to go outside either. I live in Florida. If the temperature drops below 60 degree Fahrenheit, I start breaking up furniture for firewood.

Frappr Map for This Blog

Take a minute and indicate where you are on this map. You don't even need to create a login if you don't want to. I'm just curious where the people who read this are.
