I can never find the goddamn movie thread when I need to, but I wanted to say House of the Devil was a bunch of fun.

Currently watching National Lampoon's Vacation again for the first time since the 90s. It's still great.

I've been wanting to see House of the Devil but never get around to it.

All three NL Vacation movies are pretty good. European Vacation I haven't seen since I was a kid, the other two I watch every other year or so.
I'm so punk, I don't even take my leather jacket off when it catches fire. Which it does frequently, because of how fucking punk I am.

As ghastly as Chevy Chase's career became, the first two Vacation flicks still work for me. Clark Griswold is very much a precursor of Homer Simpson—the middle-class father as clueless boob, with kids already more perceptive than him.

I enjoyed Law Abiding Citizen last night. A bit cheesy but a whole lotta shit got blown up.
So what does Marconi playing the mamba mean? "Marconi" is referring to the radio itself. It plays a deadly snake. The snake - the mamba - is slithering from the speakers. Ready to kill greedy corporations. Ready to free the world of all that is evil, and to leave behind only the youthful idealism encompassed by the tenets of rock and roll.

The trombone is man's funniest musical instrument.

Personal bias, of course, but the bagpipes are the most hateful. My will to live is sapped noticeably whenever I hear that sound of strangled animals.

Steeltown, East of Eden, and Wonderland.

Okay, that took some time, but they're alright.
