FUTURE SHOCK was reviewed (and praised) by Joe Bob Briggs in his (snail mail) newsletter way back in the early 90s.

Kids today (...) often appear unaware of things that have been major cultural phenomena in their own lifetimes/even in the past 5-10 years. I had some HS students this week claim to be unaware of Thanos and Beyonce. Okay, maybe Beyonce isn't a thing right now, but they know Jay-Z still and they know Kanye - they don't know Beyonce? Even ten years ago an ignorance of Thanos would be expected. You don't read comics, you wouldn't know Thanos. But he was the centerpiece of a few of the biggest grossing motion pictures of all time within the past 4-5 years. Goes to show the monomyth is dead. We can't take anything for granted as being universal anymore.

Also I watch obscure movies pretty often. Watched one called DARK ARC last night. Anyone ever see that one?  Smile

Because of insomnia the previous night I slept an incredibly long time last night/this morning and slid through long cycles of dreams, and the last one I remember was a semi-recurring dream I have about going back to my school, but in my dreams the school is much larger in size than it was, with fantastical wings that would make no sense in a real world setting. Well in this dream the school had been given a living coelacanth which was in a massive aquarium just inside the school's entrance, and I was there to see that unveiled. It was one of those almost astral dreams where you feel yourself thinking and making decisions inside the dream. Beautiful, really, and I wish every sleep could be like that.

September 23, 1994 It was day one of the best three-day weekend of my teen years.

Dana picked me up that evening to spend the night with her, and when we got to her college town an hour away, we walked right into a party, and had to get past a wall of frat boys, whom Dana said were sketchy so don’t make eye contact. It’s funny now but The X-Files was such a big new thing that it was being watched right in the middle of this multi-apartment Dionysian revel.
A couple hours later we got into Dana’s Nissan and drove down to see her friend Scott, whom I instantly liked, and after we settled into the blessed silence at his place, Dana said to him, “I been promising my cousin for years I’d get her stoned, and it seems like a good night.”

I declined, though she and Scott definitely didn’t, and I was soon feeling the ambient effects for the second time in a month, because Scott went from seeming a little funny to coming across as downright hilarious, and I thought, my gosh, Dee has actually gotten me stoned after all. (But in the same vein of logic some Catholic girls have long applied to matters sexual, I told myself it didn’t count.)

Scott teased me about laughing so much, and I said sorry, I had a problem with laughing unintentionally at the wrong times, and he said, “Then I pray to God you never give a blowjob, hon.” Which set me off laughing even harder.

I was figuring out that Scott was probably gay, but I didn’t find out til later that there was more to that equation than gay alone. He microwaved us a frozen appetizer platter he stole from a Friday’s where he worked as a server, and fixed us tropical punch, and left the bottle of rum on the table, and Dana got toasted and Scott was pretty giggly drunk too on top of the joint they’d split. He showed me he waxed his legs and even his arms, and I asked, “Are you like a cyclist or a swimmer or something?”

He laughed and Dana goes, “Tell her.”

Turned out Scott was a drag performer! Wow, coming from my suburban world it was like meeting an eskimo, or a cowboy, or a Republican college professor, something you’d heard of but hadn’t verified actually existed.

Scott told me about his ardent love for Mariah Carey and sang along to every song that came up on her CD, and showed me pictures of himself in drag, and he truly did make an attractive woman, not the campy sort, but realistic.

Dana announced we were sleeping there because she’d had a huge fight with her flatmates and I told her I thought that sucked because one of them had beautiful king snakes in a terrarium, and I’d looked forward to seeing them. She told me to buy myself one, and I said my mom wouldn’t let me, to which Dana said, “Tell her Saint Patrick miracled it to your room.”

Scott was asleep in minutes but Dana and I laid on the foldout bed in his living room for what must have been half an hour, talking. In this dreamy, sleepy, intoxicated tone she told me when I was eighteen and she was twenty-two she’d take me around the Caribbean and we’d get drinks bought for us by dark men and British ex-pats. She held up her hand and so palm-to palm we swore we would.

She fell asleep, I didn’t yet, the pull-out mattress was too thin and in her sleep Dana kept rolling on me to the point I was going to sleep on the floor til I saw waterbugs scooting across it in the dark. (It wasn’t a very nice place, tell the truth.) I did pass out, kind of, but it wasn’t a sleep that was in danger of winning any awards.

And we never did cruise the Caribbean and get bought drinks by British ex-pats, and dark-skinned men.

Huh! If I see if on streaming I may give it a go. I've long thought a good story for either print or film could arise from the little King tantalized us with about the Micmac peoples and their history with the "pet sematary."

Truly, our weather has been so pretty the last week it's been almost....dare I say perfect? It makes everything in life that much happier. (Oddly I don't remember there being so many fall colors showing up this early on leaves. Not sure why that is.)

Since we mentioned BRAINIAC, there's also a low-budget horror titled DRAINIAC that should count.

Early oughts slasher/comedy. One of the worst slashers I've ever seen.

HESHER starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt seems to be a unique hit on imdb.

...Whaaaaaaa? MOONRAKER and OCTOp***y are not unique?! Show your work please, sir!  Question Buggedout

Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

Lesson Learned:
  • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
