Watching an episode of Seinfeld.Whenever they pan over by his television i'm always wondering what VHS he has.So far just by my knowledge of what the sides of certain movies look like I can see that he has:Pretty Woman,Childs Play 2,Back to the Future 3,True Colors,The Crying Game,The Hunt for Red October,Goodfellas,Against all Odds,Betrayed,Leolo,and a copy of World Cup for the NES.What are the rest?!

Today would have been my dads 60th birthday.Hard to believe sometimes that he has been gone almost a decade now.I suppose alot of the time I sort of ignore things and space off.Since my mom has been posting so many pictures of my dad on facebook today it has had me missing him.It's not that I normally don't miss my dad,I think of him all the time.Just seeing pictures of him is just bringing it more to the surface of how much I wish he was here.

1.So I was talking to Jayson before he left for his friend Steve's house and i smelled smoke.I am overly paranoid about fire,so i began sniffing around to find it.We looked all over the main floor and the basement,and nothing.I run upstairs trying there,Bootleg Jason and Jd are sitting on the floor in his room.I ask if they smell anything and they just laugh thinking I'm messing with them.I run back downstairs and by and odd chance look outside.Let me mention that outside on our porch is a large plastic cigarette ashtray that you usually find outside of restaurants.Well that ashtray was white hot and had flames coming out of it.Bootleg Jason must not have let his cigarette out and it started to burn.Good thing I found it when i did.
2.So I forgot that one of my friends forever ago sent me Mii characters on my Wii that look like Hitler and Danzig.I was doing the lap that you run on Wii Fit and who runs past my waving but Hitler.Danzig was just behind him running along me.It added to the game I assure you.
3.My aunt and uncle got married today at the courthouse.I enjoyed that when the judges helper came out to lead us into the court room my aunt made sure to point out I was all dressed up today,no slasher shirts for the court house.Made me laugh.

Things that happened while I was working today:
-Today was the last day to get stuff out of the old store.Oddly enough the next door eye center was moving today as well.While throwing stuff out via the back door I was greeted by one of the eye center people yelling about Doctor Who.I was wearing my logo shirt so it's not like it was an aura that i was giving off.While talking to him he kept telling me he liked the episodes from the start when they talked funny.I had no idea what he was talking about but was happy he was a fan.
-We had boxes full of defective guitars and other things sitting in the store still.The boss told me to destroy all of it so no one would try and resell it to us.Standing by the dumpster bashing guitar hero/rock band guitars in the rain was pretty fun.The Doctor Who fan stood ten feet away and watched me as I did this.
-I overheard a man calling his girlfriend/wife "dickball".I'm sure it is a loving nickname and all but ,well I don't know what to say.
-I went to the hardware store to pick something up for the store.While there the cashier I had was very happy to see my Doctor Who shirt.He told me all about how much he liked Jon Pertwee as the Doctor.I held up the line talking about the new and old series.As a goodbye he held out his knuckles for me to pound in a cool fashion.
-I went and bought new shoes.
-After writing a note on the DS we had in the display case saying that we had other colours available I realized that I used the English spelling of color and wondered if that would confuse the customers.Thinking that it would i left it.
-Enjoyed having a woman tell me how she doesn't mess with ghosts.
-other stuff and then I went home!

It slightly amazes me how singing along to Danzig can make a bad mood turn into a good one.On the way back from the grocery store i put in my favorite Misfits song and in 24 seconds i was all smiles.I am trying to cook a new sauce for pasta involving sun dried tomatoes,wish me luck.On sunday night after work we moved the Merillville store into a new location.Erik and I ended up moving all the heavy stuff and i was terrified of the grossness hidden under things.The next morning when i had to open i was so out of it.I started getting a cold/flu and had the hardest time staying awake.That's all for now,Time for a walk.

star trek [02 May 2009|05:03am]

Thursday night Nyssa and I went to a sneak preview of the new Star Trek.I was lucky enough to win the tickets through Aintitcoolnews.com.I will say if possible never watch a movie with a good amount of action in the front seven rows.It seems like you have to move your head so much left and right to take in everything.Overall the movie was great,I was happy how they made it fit with the other series.Simon Pegg really should have been in it more,it was a shame he didn't show up to near the end.After the movie as we left there was a guy asking what we thought of the movie.Right after a movie i can never answear anything like that.The guy asked me what my favorite part was and all i could say was maybe he should ask someone else.What i really should have said was there needed to be more Simon Pegg and maybe horses riding lawnmowers or something.

Friday the 13th shirts! [28 Feb 2009|11:44pm]
For the last friday the 13th Fright Rags made two limited edition Jason shirts.They were both on sale for 13 hours for people on the mailing list.I ordered the classic mask shirt for myself and the Jason from part 7 shirt for one of my roomates.I was super happy to find the package in the mailbox after work.


i will more than likely be over wearing this soon with a small selection of overshirts.




both of the shirt designs.


how swell,they sent me an aliens trading card,a zombi2 card and sugar!




the first 300 orders got A 1 Dram (1/16 oz) vial of water from the "original Crystal Lake" (aka Sand Pond) in Blairstown, New Jersey .
PS.even hockey masks can't stop the enjoyment of m&ms.

Won tickets for this via aintitcoolnews and just got back from seeing it.The 3D is awesome,there is so much shit to look at.
The best was at start they announced there would be a surprise guest at the end,i kept thinking it would just suck and be that guy from Supernatural. No way they brought Tom Atkins out to give a small Q and A. He talked about Carpenter,halloween 3,how night of the creeps was his favorite film he did. He even brought Fred Dekker out to the premiere in California for this. He even told about his two worst dates and how Vincent Price once told him how great he was while shopping for pastries.Great free showing up in Chicago,everyone should watch this in 3D since it won't be nearly as great once its on dvd.

work. [01 Jan 2009|11:48pm]
1.At work today one of my favorite customers from the other store came in.She used to dislike me for some reason or another until she found out i liked Buckaroo banzai and then we bonded.Oh i think she thought i was rude one day or something.Well she came in with a friend looking for me for a Doctor who question.IT was fantastic since as i was explaining something to her another customer stood a few feet away and stared.Kelly asked if he needed help and he said he also had a Doctor who question for me.Neal said i should be teaching a course and maybe we should advertise my Doctor Who knowledge for the store.
2.Since I've been the manager at the new store I've been trying to do a few things my way.One such thing is setting up a random movie section.This month is movies with aliens or Tom Cruise.I came up with the next few months ideas today,since i want to change it monthly and all.Soon it will be:What a two years 1993-1994,Mel Gibson or sport cars,Sandra bullock or Magic stuff,and Dance movies or Sam Jackson.

I am in shock to have just found out the uncut version of My Bloody Valentine will be out on dvd next year.Just about my favorite slasher film of all time,it now will be complete.For years the eight minutes of cut scenes have been something i've wanted to see.Sadly Paramount Pictures has owned the rights all these years,and now Lionsgate will handle this disc.For whatever reason Paramount won't release uncut horror films,they have always looked in shame at their 80's horror catalog.I can only thank the remake now for giving fans this brilliant news.

The show was great,the setlist was:
13 blues for thirteen moons,could've moved mountains,mountains made of steam,metal bird,microphones in the trees,1,000,000 died to make this sound and they encored with there is a light.It was the bands 175th show and now my fourth that i've gone to.The venue never seemed as full as it could be and the people who yelled things between songs were annoying.The set was great,i was happy that they were sill playing microphones in the trees.I'm sort of brain dead at this point,i just wanted to keep note of the show for future memory.

Science experiment/the beard [14 Nov 2007|11:56pm]
For most of my life the closest i've gotten to a beard is a few too many days of stubble.I decided to try growing one,just for a little bit.As of now it's starting to fill in ,minus some spots of no hair.I only imagine what sort of crazy homeless man i must look like right now.


On a side not i enjoy that both my neighbors are Doctor Who fans.It's nice to know that both the guys living in the building are cool .The neighbor guy downstairs is a writer and illustrater and upstairs neighbor guy writes screenplays.This is the first time ever living someplace where i've enjoyed the people who live near me.

oct 26th [26 Oct 2007|11:37pm]
sometime around 5:30 this morning my grandmother passed on.after the last post things kept getting worse.about a week ago most of my family from buffalo showed up to say last goodbyes.i thought it was going to end that day,after each person had a few minutes with her my mom,her sisters,and her brother were going to be there as they took off most of what was keeping her alive.a few days later she ended up in a hospice here in town where my mom,and three of my aunts kept her company around the clock.by this point most of her body was shutting down and she could hardly speak.in a few days my mom will be going with my aunts to bury her ashes back home in new york.
after work when i went back to my moms it was weird for my aunt to talk with me about what will happen when my own mom passes.its something i suppose that you should be aware of but it weirded me out.with my grandmother gone,its been nice having two of my aunts around.besides my aunt that lives across the street from her we dont have any family in the state.i hate the idea of my mom in that house all alone again,just as she was when my father died.
thanks should be mentioned to everyone who stopped by my work or wrote me to see how things were going.sorry i havent really written anyone back yet.oddly enough my friend russ had his grandmother in the room next to mine at the hospice.sadly she passed away today as well,sorry russ im thinking of you.
i dont think ive mentioned this but as of two weeks ago i moved again,if anyone needs to know where to just ask

my grandmother has been in the hospital for a few days now and today at work my mom called to tell me that things arent looking good for her.of all the days for my mom to hear this today would be the worst.im going over there after work and i really hope things turn up for my grandmother.
i should edit this now,i just got back from the hospital.my grandmothers body is shutting down ,it doesnt look like she will recover.at one point she woke up and my mom told her i was there.she tried looking at where i was and held out her hand.she told me goodbye and i held onto her hand for the rest of the time i was in there.today is her birthday,and as you may have guessed the day my dad died.what a day.walking by all the rooms looking at everyone silent in their rooms,it made me want to tell any of you that may be around when i die,please please please make sure if i have a tv in the room to be playing doctor who,or if there isnt please bring a boombox and play moya by Godspeed You Black Emperor.i can not stand silence.
