'Catholic Cheerleaders For Satan' Web Series

Synopsis: "So, there's this detective named Roddy Tillinghast. He gets hired to find an old 70's drive-in flick called "Catholic Cheerleaders for Satan". He gets beat up a lot! We made a movie about him and his jaw-cracking, gun-slinging friends. This movie is called "The Hard Cut Double/Feature" and is coming out next year, in 2011.

But wait... we also found the real deal -- the "Catholic Cheerleaders for Satan" movie from 1978. Timewarp! Only, the print was effed, we couldn't really show anyone. So instead of letting people think we're a bunch of liars, we went and remade this movie, like shot-for-shot, pretty much. Then we took the print and dragged it across the cement and some broken glass and shit... So it kinda looks like the old effed up print we dug up now.

Anyhoo, we're going to send this thing out to the world, one reel at a time. Soon. Very soon. And then, maybe later, you can see what happens to the poor detective who tried to track this sister-loving drive-in flick down..."

'Being Human' American Style?!

I have watched every episode of BBC's Being Human and have enjoyed it immensely. I am currently worried for the new season as far as showing here on my BBC America. I haven't been able to find out if they will continue showing it since SyFy has began the Americanized version of this smash hit. I am not sure whether I will like the American verison or not. Everytime a british show gets revamped American style something gets lost in the translation. Here is a peek at the Syfy version...

Dave Brockie(Oderus Urungus)- Whargoul

I Destroyed Your Life
I Raped Your Wife
I Am the Fucking Whargoul

From the killing grounds of Stalingrad to the death camps of the holocaust. From torture chambers in Iraq to race riots in the United States, the Whargoul was there - killing and raping. It is a beast born in bullets and shrapnel, feeding off of pain, misery, and hard drugs. Cursed to wander the Earth without the hope of death, it is reborn again and again to spread the gospel of hate, abuse, and genocide.
But what if it's not the only monster out there? What if there's something worse?
From Dave Brockie, the twisted genius behind GWAR, comes a novel about the darkest days of the twentieth century. The modern world is dying and Brockie is here to put a bullet between its eyes and violate the corpse.
This is all-out fucking war!!

Buffy's First Christmas Episode "Amends"

 It's Christmas in Sunnydale and Angel is haunted with dreams of the people he murdered over the years as Angelus. When Buffy starts getting dragged into his memory-nightmares, experiencing Angel's dreams also, they realize something not natural is happening.

The story starts out with an homage to Dickens by relating Angel's past with a Christmas memory of a past victim.

After Angel's disturbing dream wakes him, he runs to the streets of Sunnydale to shake it off only to run into Buffy doing some Christmas shopping.

At school the gang are still dealing with the riff between the group from the whole Oz and Cordy finding Willow and Zander making out in the basement boiler room. Oz and Willow finally make their amends over the situation. Cordy is back to bitch mode and poor Zander is back to second hand goods...

While Christmas tree shopping with her mom Buffy finds a section of trees that have just died for no reason. Which in Sunnydale doesn't mean pine bark beetles it means evil is afoot.

Buffy invites Faith to Christmas Eve dinner with her and her mom. I love the whole fact that Christmas decorations are strewn throughout the set of this episode. Showing a little Christmas spirit exists in each of the characters even if they don't show it fully.

Angel goes to Giles for help to find out why he was brought back from the hell dimension and finds it hard to talk as he begins to be haunted at Gile's home by his victims.

Angel and Buffy both realize that they are involved in the whole haunting thing as Buffy begins to mysteriously appear in Angel's dreams.

The gang begin their research into what could be behind the hauntings that Angel is experiencing and soon discover that it is the First Evil. Worshiped by the Bringers the First is evil in its purest and most ancient form before gods law.

Buff and Zander decide to do some leg work to find where these harbingers would hold up during their stay in Sunnydale by checking out the local rat hole. Willy the bar owner is of little help though!

That night as Sunnydale begins the Christmas Eve celebration the gang try to follow through with previous festivities planned...

Willow offers herself to Oz and Faith joins Buffy for dinner just as Angel decides to pay a visit to warn/feed on Buffy depending on his will power and that nagging ghost that haunts him...

Buffy then rushes to Giles to let him know that Angel is slipping and finding those harbingers is paramount to his salvation, and by association theirs. Because as we all know an evil Angel is a hungry Angel full blood lust and dark folly.

Buffy finds the Bringers under the dead Christmas trees and kicks their ass and is confronted by the First Evil.

Buffy finds Angel over looking the town from a bluff waiting for the sun to rise. She begs him to come inside out of the day but the day never comes because a freak cold front brings a snow storm to Sunnydale on Christmas Day. Throughout this episode the gang learn and show through action the the true meaning of Christmas is the selfless act of putting others needs above their own.

This show of divine intervention clearly shows that Angel has been given a second chance. With the weather report saying the sun shouldn't be expected to be seen at all today, Buffy and Angel take a romantic walk through the town.
