Pax Romano, of the very entertaining Billy Loves Stu, has created this meme for horror bloggers. Since I'm kind of in a meme-y mood, I decided to play along.
The First Ever Billy Loves Stu Meme for Horror Bloggers
1: In Ten Words or Less, Describe Your Blog:
My outlet to discuss horror films honestly and humorously.
2: During What Cinematic Era Where you Born?
A: The Classic Horror Era (late 30's to 40's)
B: The Atomic Monster/Nuclear Angst Era (the late 40's through 50's)
C: The Psycho Era ( Early 60's)
D: The Rosemary's Baby Era (Mid to Late 60's)
E: The Exorcism Era (Early to mid 70's)
F: The Halloween Era (Late 70's to Early 80's)
G: The Slasher Era (Mid to late 80's)
H: The Self Referential/Post Modern Era (1990 to 1999)
I was born in 1981, so definitely The Halloween era. In fact, since Halloween is my all-time favorite movie, I wouldn't have it any other way.
3: The Carrie Compatibility Question:
(gay men and straight women - make your choice from section A)
A: Billy Nolan or Tommy Ross, who would you take to the prom?
(straight guys and lesbians - make your choice from section B)
B: Sue Snell or Chris Hargensen, who would you take to the prom?
While Sue would be great as a girlfriend and crazy ex-wife, I would take Chris to the prom because I know I would get laid all night long. Have you seen her lick her lips before pulling that rope? Oh yeah... you know what I was thinking about!
4: You have been given an ungodly amount of money, and total control of a major motion picture studio - what would your dream Horror project be?
I would love to bring back the anthology series, like Tales From The Crypt, The Twilight Zone, or Tales From The Darkside. I would also like to contribute to making those Goosebumps books into real movies because I know a lot of people who would like to see that happen, myself included.
5: What horror film "franchise" that others have embraced, left you cold?
It's gotta be Hellraiser. I've only seen the first four and I only like the first three. I'll watch the rest and probably review them one day, but I'm in no rush.
6: Is Michael Bay the Antichrist?
And disrespect the Antichrist? No way. He's part of Hell though. I don't care if the dude makes stupid action films. But leave my horror classics alone! Yeah you did okay with The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and especially The Amityville Horror. But fuck off the rest of them, you greedy fuck!
7: Dracula, The Wolf Man, The Frankenstein Monster - which one of these classic villains scares you, and why?
Well since I'm part of the Wolf Man's pack, I embrace his work. I would say Dracula. Once he hypnotizes you and wants your neck, it's done for.
8: Tell me about a scene from a NON HORROR Film that scares the crap out of you:
The horse head from The Godfather. That shit was freaky and haven't looked at horses the same way since.
9: Baby Jane Hudson invites you over to her house for lunch. What do you bring?
Botox injections. How else is she gonna stay Baby Jane? Also Coca-Cola to piss off her sister. I'll remind her to hide the wire hangers.
10: So, between you and me, do you have any ulterior motives for blogging? Come, on you can tell me, it will be our little secret, I won't tell a soul.
While I do like the attention, I do it really because I like to get my thoughts out and it helps me deal with stress. Plus it allows me to interact with other horror fans. I never really had that outlet when I was growing up.
11: What would you have brought to Rosemary Woodhouse's baby shower?
Talon clippers and heavy metal music.
12: Godzilla vs The Cloverfield Monster, who wins?
They both do because we will all be dead during the battle. But at the end of the day, Godzilla.
13: If you found out that Rob Zombie was reading your blog, what would you post in hopes that he read it?
I would tell him to make his own horror films [no remakes] on the side while focusing more on his music. He's a much better musician. Also, to stop having his wife star in every single thing he makes. It's getting annoying.
14: What is your favorite NON HORROR FILM, and why?
A Clockwork Orange because it's fuckin' awesome and Stanley Kubrick was a genius ahead of his time, although some do consider that somewhat horror. If they do, I'll go with The Goonies.
15: If blogging technology did not exist, what would you be doing?
Probably making movies and watching them. I don't think much would change besides having more time to do other things.
