‘As God is my witness…’ Yeah, you know the rest.

If you’re one of the few people who don’t at this point, well.

One of the greatest sitcom sequences ever.

…Sneaking away from the preparations, huh?

Fair enough, fair enough.  Personally, I’m trying to decide what else to stuff the Cornish game hens with tomorrow.  I know about the lemon, of course.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope everybody has somewhere to go, and that you’ve already gotten there because there will be Crazy People On The Roads.  Our own plans got reconfigured because of all the snow that got dumped last night on our idyllic West Virginia vacation spot; but, hey, no travel now and no cooking in a strange kitchen.

Tweet of the Day, Good GOD But This Is True edition.

It’s as true a thing as a thing could be, in fact.

Got enough Amazon credit for an album.

What should I get? – I’d prefer something either available in MP3, or with Autorip.  I’m honestly leaning towards Run-D.M.C. – Greatest Hits, because childhood nostalgia, but I’m willing to entertain alternate suggestions.

‘Hurt.’

Hurt, Johnny Cash

I meant to do a post on covers of songs that made the original singers just throw up their hands and go Fine. Just take the damn song, then.  This one would be at the top of most of the lists.

…Right. OK, the ‘Jurassic World’ trailer.

So I got tweeted this:

…which refers to this:

So here’s my response: YOU DAFT IDJITS IN THAT UNIVERSE NEED TO STOP CLONING DINOSAURS. IT NEVER WORKS OUT THE WAY THAT YOU EXPECTED IT TO.

Seriously, guys. Cloning might be a respectable field of scientific study in my world, but in yours it’s a fast-track to Dino-Mega-Rampage. Maybe you guys should build, I don’t know, animatronic robots or something…

PS: Look, there’s not a chance in Hell I will be capable of taking this movie seriously, sorry.

‘Werewolves Of London.’

Werewolves Of London, Warren Zevon

I think that I’ll spare you the music video to this one.

Book of the Week: ‘The Case of Charles Dexter Ward.’

Ken Hite once (half-despairingly*) called The Case of Charles Dexter Ward the second best horror novel ever written, and he’s correct about both the quality and the half-despair. If you read nothing else by HP Lovecraft, read this one (you should also read other things by HP Lovecraft).

Adieu, The Peshawar Lancers.

*It almost didn’t get published at all.  And if it had been published in Lovecraft’s lifetime he might have lived longer.
