A few memes in Dobly

For the record... I have saved a card from the 2000 theatrical re-release that actually has the Dolby Digital logo say "Dobly." I don't know why, but the DVD of that release reverted boringly back to "Dolby." This is one laserdisc I never got, but wish that I really had... in addition to the two commentary tracks - one by Rob Reiner and the other by Harry Shearer, Michael McKean and Christopher Guest not in character - it came with a genuine Spin̈al Tap guitar pick!!!

Yeah, I know I don't play guitar, but that means that I wouldn't ever ruin it.

Kind of like the guitar Nigel doesn't want people to even think about.

My score on The Which Lolcat Are You? Test:

Sad Cookie Cat

(61% Affectionate, 45% Excitable, 71% Hungry)

You are the classic Shakespearian tragedy of the lolcat universe. The sad story of a baking a cookie, succumbing to gluttony, and in turn consuming the very cookie that was to be offered. Bad grammar ensues.

  1. Slasher Flicks or Classic Horror?
    Classic horror tends to be more intelligent.

  2. Who is the better horror director--Wes Craven or John Carpenter?
    John Carpenter has made several horror films that are really good (Halloween, The Thing), while Craven has made some okay ones.

  3. Which is more frightening--Graphic gore or psychological scares or gore?
    Psychological scares, gore is not scary, just gross.

  4. Who is scarier--Jason Voorhees or Michael Myers?
    Michael Myers; Jason is just silly.

  5. Who (or what) is your favorite horror bad guy or monster?
    The alien.

  6. Ghosts or Zombies?
    Zombies are, of course, my big phobia.

  7. NOTLD 1968 or 1990?
    1968, no question. I had the chance to see it with an audience who hadn't seen it yet, and trust me, it still scares the shit out of people.

  8. DAWN OF THE DEAD 1978 or 2004?
    I'd have to go with the '04, but only because I haven't seen the '78 one for a very long time.

  9. In your opinion, what is the scariest horror flick ever?
    The original Night of the Living Dead.

  10. If you could spend 1 hour with any horror director, which would it be?
    Maybe John Carpenter.

  11. Do you feel that science-fiction movies like ALIEN and PREDATOR also qualify as horror films?
    Genre works on several different levels. Alien is most certainly a horror film (one of the best monster movies ever made), although I'd question whether or not Predator is.

  12. Who is the better horror writer--Stephen King or Dean Koontz?
    King! Koontz sucks, he writes the same shit over and over again.

  13. Do you believe in ghosts?
    Of course not!

  14. Do you believe in anything supernatural?

  15. If you had the choice of becoming a vampire, would you?
    Hell's no. I like garlic.

  16. Do you know who Ed Gein is?
    Of course, but suitboyskin is the real expert.

  17. What is your favorite episode of Showtime's MASTERS OF
    HORROR thus far?


  18. Hammer or Universal?

  19. Which is scarier--NOTLD or 28 DAYS LATER?
    Technically, while 28 Days Later works like a zombie film, they're technically not zombies. So NOTLD... for personal reasons...

  20. Why do you enjoy the horror genre?
    I don't, particularly. I like a good movie, if it happens to be horror, then so be it. But I find much of the horror genre to be gruesome, intellectually stunted and sexually retarded. Not all of them, but a lot of them... including those lauded giallo films which I can't stand.

  1. How do you usually introduce yourself to people?
    I don't, except on the phone, where I say, "Hello, this is Josh of Verizon Special Services."

  2. What is the longest plane ride you’ve been on?
    To the Bahamas, I think. Maybe California? I sleep through them usually, so...

  3. Where do you usually order pizza from?

  4. Have you ever been to Houston?
    No, I'm steering well clear of Texas.

  5. Have you ever tripped going up steps?
    Anybody who answers "no" is a liar.

  6. Who was the last person to go to the movies with you?

  7. What’s one thing you really hope to do this summer?
    Get to use the damn pool already.

  8. Do you have a best friend?
    I have several.

  9. Who’s #1 on your top?
    Dan happens to be, but it's completely random.

  10. Is this one of your best friends?

  11. Are you currently fighting with someone?
    Not really. I guess you could call my disinterest in Douchebag a fight, but I'm just really ignoring him... and that's most likely permanent.

  12. Where will you be in the next 12 hours?
    I will go home, then prowl about for desserts for my parents' barbecue tomorrow. Then I will probably stay in my apartment until I receive Deathly Hallows, at which point I will set out to my parents', deliver the desserts and ignore the mob of unruly primates that they will be having over.

  13. What did you do 2 nights ago?
    Nothing. I read. That's why I didn't know about the big explosion.

  14. Have you ever thrown something out of a moving car?
    Well, I once threw The Fork at Russ' car whilst in motion. That's a really long story, maybe I'll tell you about it when you get a little older.

  15. Next 2 important days on your calendar?
    Not counting tomorrow? The next two Thursdays, for personal reasons!

  16. Who’s the last person to text message you?
    Surprisingly enough, Julie, the girl I rescued a few weeks ago.

  17. Last wedding you attended?
    Nate and Meg's!

  18. Who did you get this from?
    My cousin.

  19. If alcohol were banned worldwide, what would your reaction be?
    I'd shrug. I'm not really a big drinker, so...

  20. How much money did you make today?
    My regular daily wage.

  21. How is the weather today?

  22. Have you ever kissed a guy named Mike?

  23. What are your plans for tomorrow?
    Waiting for Deathly Hallows, then delivering desserts to my parents.

  24. Can you see a phone right now?
    Er... of course... I work for the phone company.

  25. When is your birthday?

  26. Do you own a gun?
    No, I hate guns. A coward's weapon.

  27. Are you currently working at a job that you hate?
    I don't really hate this job, but it isn't really stimulating me much.

  28. Ever skip school and spend the day at the beach?

  29. Last time you had butterflies in your stomach?
    A while ago... can't remember.

  30. Who was the last person you drove with?
    My grandmother and her friend Shirley.

  31. How are you today?
    A bit tired.

  32. When you’re in a bad mood, what do you do?
    Listen to really violent music.

  33. Do you have any really crazy relatives?
    The aforementioned grandmother is a good start.

  34. People get depressed. Are you the one they turn to?
    Very often.

  35. Does anyone in life know the real you?
    Yes. I haven't been an angsty teenager for some time.
