Things I've been enjoying...

1. Blood Freak-If you missed it the first time, count the days until TCM shows it again...which I suspect will be never. In the "Manos" class of all time bad - or amazing - movies, Blood Freak is the tale of a man who becomes a bloodthirsty bird-headed bird-man after eating spoiled chicken and taking some sort of drug. The lulling, 2 o'clock in the morning haze of the movie is interrupted every so often by an off-screen commentator with an anti-drug message. And girls walk around with little in the way of clothes. It's saved on my DVR, permanently, if you ever visit. At least watch the trailer.
2. My new bike
3. The Foot Fist Way
4. The Salmon with Zanzibar spice rub I just made
5. Two blogs: The Black Lodge and Garfield minus Garfield (which I tried to use to teach existentialism)

i came upon blood freak on TCM myself, pretty random. a week or so ago, at like 2am on saturday night? i texted reno to turn it on because it was so up his alley. i even made the manos comparison in pitching it to him; the acting was impressively stilted and terrible.

the dude was some clean-living biker guy, who started smoking pot and became a womanizing asshole. then he worked at this chicken farm, where they convinced him to try the chicken with some weird steroid they were working on.

you're right. not spoiled chicken, but steroid-tainted chicken. the perfect movie for 2 AM on a Saturday.

Best line from Foot Fist Way:
"I'm so hungry I could eat a grown man's ass."

Or something like that...

"Meditation's terrific and all but I never heard of it saving anyone from a gang rape type situation."
