NaBlo, bitches!

I'm sorry. Insulting my readership won't be a regular feature here at the Waitress for the duration of NaBloPoMo.

What's that you say? You like being anonymously degraded with inappropriate slurs? Fine, I'll keep it up then, mofos. Somebody needs to put you people in your place with your fancy laptops and your organic whole bean coffee and your too-cool-for-school indie music.

Okay, so I just described myself. I'm the asshole here. I suppose that's how I like it.

But it's NaBlo, bitches! Aren't you excited? Me too!

And this is your last chance to join in the insanity. If you don't post today then it's all over for you. This is an all or nothing proposition. Join or die.

Now that that bit of business is out of the way, how was your Halloween? Mine was fine, thanks, if somewhat lacking in the evil and debauchery departments. The lady and I just stayed in, ate some roasted pumpkin seeds, drank some pumpkin ale, watched Evil Dead II. My original suggestion was to watch Evil Dead (uno) because I saw it on a list of the scariest movies ever made on Salon yesterday. The Shining was also on the list, but we watched that last weekend and Evil Dead was the only film on the list that I actually own. I liked the description the Salon writer gave for the second Evil Dead, that it's not really a sequel but the same movie reenacted as a comedy. Pretty accurate. And since the lady friend doesn't like scary movies but very much appreciates the humor of EDII, we opted for the comedy reenactment.

The brief YouTube clip below was described by the person who posted it as "the coolest scene from any movie ever." Also pretty accurate.



Happy November, kiddos, and I hope to be reading scads of content from you all month long.

I like a certain kind of scary. Psychological thrillers, a la The Shining, are good. Gratuitous gore is not OK with me, unless it's in comedy form, as it is in ED2.

Groovy. Ha.

Happy NaBlo, bitch! We are gonna own this thing. Mara and I watched ED2 last night, too; I've seen it eight hundred and twelve times but it never gets old! Made me want to go on a Bruce Campbell bender. I haven't watched Bubba Ho Tep in a while, come to think of it...

I agree with Courtney: gratuitous gore is definitely not my thing, but if someone can make a psychological thriller without spraying guts everywhere, I'm in. I read "The Amityville Horror" when I lived alone in Ohio and it scared me so much I boxed it up and sent it to a friend serving in Iraq, just to get it out of the country. But it was a good scared, not a gross scared ... like "Unsolved Mysteries."

Sorry. Anyway, I'm excited for NaBloPoMo. DailyNewsie has joined in the fun as well!

I reject your posting challenge.

I am glad you and the lady friend were able to come to an agreement on a Halloween themed movie. I really wanted to watch a scary Sixth Sense type movie with the husband but he doesn't like the scary ones, either. So, we watched Forgetting Sarah Marshall. It has male full frontal nudity which I think is the same thing as a horror movie for a guy.

So we watched Nightmare Before Christmas (how did I miss that one?) and It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. Then we tempered it with The Thing and 30 Days of Night. Do you think it's too late to watch Evil Dead, now that it's November?

Yay! Mickey every day this month!

I was going to do NaBlo, but then I kinda forgot and didn't and was busy and insert useless excuse here. . .
