She's Melissa Now

She's Melissa Now

…You lay down and your brain casually is like “hey Robyn remember that Twitter thread about how Avril Lavigne died in between the release of her first and second album and was replaced by her body double Melissa Vandella?”, all of a sudden it’s 2am and you’re down the rabbit hole with no hope of escape.

There were TWO Ultimate Warriors?!

There were TWO Ultimate Warriors?!

The Warrior returned, but something was different. He was much, much smaller in his physique. His face paint was different, covering more of his face. His hair was shorter and a different color. Was this THE Ultimate Warrior, or merely A Ultimate Warrior?

Roswell: A Tale of Two Memos.

Roswell: A Tale of Two Memos.

In 1947, an alien spacecraft with engine trouble crash-landed in the New Mexico desert on a private ranch outside Roswell, NM. I believe this to be a pure and simple fact. The government has been covering this up for over 70 years. Here are the facts of the case: 

The Tangle: We're SOL if you don't hack your S.O.L.

The Tangle: We're SOL if you don't hack your S.O.L.

inside your body, on the inner lining of your stomach, going up and down your spinal cord, on the back side of your retina. All at once the tingles and then they're gone.

As a kid I could tell from the style of puppet or animatronic whether Jim and his crew had any hand in it and loved any footage I could get of them working on set.

As astutely put by writer Kirsty Diana Smith, “although David Bowie could die a mortal death, he will never truly cease to exist.” I certainly agree that he’ll always be somewhere in the universe, just as he created timeless characters that exist beyond the stars.

Reactions to the deaths of celebrities are strange when you stop to think about them. These are people we didn’t know. When one does pass on, we usually celebrate their work… So what do you do when one passes on in a horrific way that doesn’t call for celebration?

Glitter for Carrie

Glitter for Carrie

To this day, I see posts reminding me and others who may be suffering with their own mental health issues, that “Space Mom would want us to take our meds and take care of ourselves.”

'Course I knew who Prince was

'Course I knew who Prince was

I think one of the things I subconsciously appreciated the most about the artist was the way he often took on a female voice in his songs, singing from a perspective that was rarely heard in rock and roll. His was an ambiguous, androgynous, amorphous sexuality in the same way David Bowie’s had been in the decade prior.

I Got Wormholed!

I Got Wormholed!

The movies got it all wrong when it comes to traveling through a wormhole. I wasn’t in an empty space, and there were no crazy lights flashing. No, it was me and a bunch of worms. Who knew?

Why The Ending of Sleepaway Camp Confused Me For Years

Why The Ending of Sleepaway Camp Confused Me For Years

SLEEPAWAY CAMP somehow manages to pull off being simultaneously homophobic in tone (Peter’s father is revealed to be homosexual, in a flashback sequence that is bizarre and genuinely uncomfortable in its staging and implications) and hysterically homoerotic (did guys actually wear shorts that short in the 80s?)

They Must Be Told! - The Real Story Behind Sex Madness

They Must Be Told! - The Real Story Behind Sex Madness

SEX MADNESS is an 'educational' film from 1938 about the horrors of syphilis and sex! Directed by Dwain Esper, who some call the father of exploitation films, this film uses its educational stance to portray otherwise taboos topics not permitted in theaters due to the Motion Picture Production Code of 1930 which only became stricter in the 1940s.
