There was a time when most folks would recognize Bryan Cranston's face, but not his name.... Well, that has certainly changed.

In my opinion, the man is a true artist at both comedy AND drama.

Bryan Cranston in GODZILLA 2014

For those that don't know, he's also done a ton of voiceover work.

I'm almost positive he appeared in one of those STAR TREK spin-off shows, but I don't remember which one.

Print ad for AMAZON WOMEN ON THE MOON ( from Australia )

He has a small part in AMAZON WOMEN ON THE MOON.

The movie was released on VHS by MCA / UNIVERSAL.

Region one DVDs were released by UNIVERSAL, and also by IMAGE ENTERTAINMENT ( out of print ).

All seasons of BREAKING BAD have been released on region one DVD by SONY ( they've also released it on BLU-RAY ).

ALL THE WAY is a play starring Mr. Cranston.... Just because I dislike broadway, doesn't mean I don't like plays. Anyway, this PLAYBILL has become one of my favorite pieces of memorabilia.

FYI: METASTASIS, is the official Colombian version of BREAKING BAD. It airs in the United States, on UNIMAS - a sister network to UNIVISION.

Diego Trujillo plays Walter Blanco ( Bryan Cranston's Walter White ).

I like what I've seen.

There are differences between both versions.

Both, the United States and Colombian editions, are from SONY.

Annie Potts in PRETTY IN PINK

Got the hots for Annie Potts?.....

When I was younger, I had the hots-for-Potts.

BUTT seriously folks, I thought she was incredibly cute, and as an added bonus, she could actually act!

Believe it or not, she is still adorable!

I first saw Ms. Potts in a movie called CORVETTE SUMMER. I don't remember if I watched it at the drive-in or the walk-in theater.

It was written by Hal Barwood and Matthew Robbins ( Mr. Robbins also directed it ).


It also stars Mark Hamill and a few other familiar faces.

Most critics were NOT fond of this popcorn flick... but that shouldn't be a surprise.

In my opinion, the last quarter of the movie is probably the best. Why?... because Ms. Potts and Mr. Hamil's characters finally become three dimensional human beings.

MGM released it a couple of times on VHS ( in the United States ).

WARNER BROS has released CORVETTE SUMMER on MOD-DVD. They also released a "pressed" disc version, but it's been out-of-print for a while now.

Do I really need to tell you about PRETTY IN PINK, and who wrote, directed, and stars in it?.....

PRETTY IN PINK was released on legit VHS by PARAMOUNT.

It was also released at least three times on region one DVD by PARAMOUNT ( it's an easy movie to find ).

Annie Potts in WHO'S HARRY CRUMB?

WHO'S HARRY CRUMB? was written by Robert Conte and Peter Wortmann.

It was directed by Paul Flaherty.

John Candy ( 1950 – 1994 ), Shawnee Smith, Joe Flaherty, and Tim Thomerson, also appear in this flick.

Professional critics had a fun time bashing John Candy, both professionally AND personally.

And of course, they really had a great time bad-mouthing this flick.

Who cares about this movie?... The most important critics of all, the consumers... that's who cares!

Who the hell remembers the critics?!... NOBODY!... Even Siskel & Ebert are becoming a faded memory. Why the fuck, would I care about a professional critics opinion? They're NOT the ones that purchase movie tickets, or videos, or related merchandise. It's MY OPINION that counts!

Well, HARRY CRUMB had the last laugh!

It was released on VHS by RCA, and released again by COLUMBIA / TRISTAR ( SONY ).

MILL CREEK has just released the 25th anniversary edition of WHO'S HARRY CRUMB? on region one DVD. It was also released by SONY ( out-of-print ).



COMPANY: Artisan





PRICE: $2.95


Theresa Russell is in this movie, and that's why I purchased it.

Michael Emil, Gary Busey, and Tony Curtis ( 1925 – 2010 ), also star in this film.

I haven't seen this movie in a long time, so I don't remember if I liked it.

It was written by Terry Johnson, and directed by Nicolas Roeg.

This movie has been released on region one DVD a few times. First by ARTISAN, then by CRITERION.

A BLU-RAY has also been released by CRITERION.

The tape is housed in a standard sized cardboard slip-case.

NOTE: Screengrabs are from an online trailer.

FYI: I regard VHS / BETA tapes as movie memorabilia. Also, I do NOT watch tapes UNLESS the film is NOT on region one DVD.

Love the poster art, and I like the movie also.....

The IMDB lists five people as writers for STUNTS. They are, Raymond Lofaro, Dennis Johnson, Barney Cohen, Michael Harpster, and Robert Shaye.

It was directed by Mark L. Lester.

When I was young, I adored Candice Rialson ( 1951 – 2006 ), and I'd watch anything she appeared in.

I never met her, and sometimes I wonder what kind of person she was.

Robert Forster is also in this film.

There are a lot of familiar faces in STUNTS. Such as, Fiona Lewis, Ray Sharkey ( 1952 – 1993 ), Joanna Cassidy, and Richard Lynch ( 1940 - 2012 ).

I think it was released on VHS in the United States, but I'm not sure.


EAST WEST ENTERTAINMENT also released STUNTS as part of a double feature ( paired with BORN TO BE SOLD ). It's out-of-print.

FYI: EAST WEST double features were made to sell for ONE DOLLAR, and the titles I owned were UNcut ( they had some RARE movies in their library ).

STUNTS is also available via MILL CREEK's region one SWINGIN' SEVENTIES 50 MOVIE PACK ( I own this set ).

STUNTS is in rough shape, but not as bad as you might think. It's presented in FULLscreen and appears to be uncut ( running time is slightly over 89 mins ).

STUNTS is found on disc 7. This collection contains 12 single sided discs and a 24 page booklet.

Just for the record, I prefer getting most of my exploitation flicks this way. Plus, all the movies are on "pressed" discs.

You can also watch STUNTS online ( via AMAZON and others ).

INSERTS: Yes... A four page MGM mini catalog


PRICE: $2.95


I don't remember if I've seen this movie before.

I've searched for a trailer, but can't find one.

All I know for certain, is that I love the artwork on the cover, and that was my primary reason for purchasing it.

THE VIOLENT BREED - aka RAZZA VIOLENTA - was written by Fernando Di Leo ( 1932 – 2003 ), and Nino Marino.

It was directed by Fernando Di Leo.

Henry Silva and Woody Strode ( 1914 - 1994 ), appear in this movie.

The tape is housed in a book style cardboard / plastic case.

I don't think this movie was ever released on legit region one DVD.

FYI: I regard VHS / BETA tapes as movie memorabilia. Also, I do NOT watch tapes UNLESS the film is NOT on region one DVD.

This movie was written by Leon Capetanos.

The IMDB lists two people as director, Leon Capetanos and Lewis Teague.

It stars, Morgan Paull ( 1944 – 2012 ), Art Metrano, and others.

Katie Saylor also appears in it.

It's been a long time since I've seen this movie, so I don't remember if I liked it. However, I do remember it having female nudity, and that's always a good thing!.... Well, maybe not always.

I don't know if this ever had a legit VHS, or BETA, release in the United States.

I also can NOT find this movie on region one DVD, or MOD-DVD.

As I write this, the only legit source for this flick, seems to be STREAMING via AMAZON.

48 HOURS: TALES OF TIMES SQUARE was a special episode of a news show called 48 HOURS ( CBS ). It may have aired sometime in the early nineties.

First, we meet a bunch of southern tourists visiting the BIG BAD CITY for the very first time. It's fun watching them react to the sleaze surrounding them.

Then we see a little violence on the street.

You'll also see some undercover footage of peep-show prostitutes, and spend time with some boxers at TIMES SQUARE GYM.

They also talk about broadway. I don't like this part - most folks don't give a fuck about broadway.

We also spend time with an older cop, and he shares stories about the times square area.

I liked the part about the senior citizens center at St. Malachy's church.

QUOTE BY HEATHER - "I'm gonna be famous... I'm gonna be like the next Marilyn Monroe Madonna" - Apparently, she hasn't figured out that Marilyn Monroe and Madonna are TWO DIFFERENT PERSONS!... Yeah, some big-wig is going to discover her at the strip joint she works in, and they're going to make her a BIG star... yeah... right...

ANOTHER QUOTE BY HEATHER - "He gift to me with a body, and he gift to me with a face and a personality... and when you have all those qualities in one person, then you know, you have to use them to your best advantage".... WHAT AN EGO!

Things don't go well for the southern tourists. Their hotel catches fire. QUOTE BY ONE OF THE SOUTHERN TOURISTS - "I doubt, I'll ever come back to New York"....

Anyway, I enjoyed watching this years ago.

I have no idea, if it was released on VHS.

I don't think it has ever been released on legit region one DVD ( I can NOT find a grey-market disc either ).

You may be able to watch this online.

FYI: In all the years I lived in southern California, I never once heard of Llana Lloyd - aka the glitter goddess.

Llana's mom and Llana on a talk show

GLITTER GODDESS OF THE SUNSET STRIP is about a screwed-up woman, that comes from a screwed-up family, and lives in a screwed-up world... The same screwed-up world the rest of us screw-ups share with her ( how scary is that? ).

GLITTER GODDESS OF THE SUNSET STRIP will make you yawn, gasp in amazement, laugh, and cry. Yes, I said cry... Why?... Because it's that terrible.

I only have myself to blame.... That's what I was thinking after I finished watching this film. I had the power to turn it off, anytime I wanted to, but I didn't!

This film is full of atrocious reenactments, tv show clips, and home movies.

During one reenactment, Llana's mother rants against heterosexuals! She wants people to be TOLERANT of her homosexuality, and yet, she's INtolerant of heterosexuality!.... What a fucking hypocrite!

My favorite part of this film, involves Llana portraying herself AND her mother! She ends up with a bloody face. It's supposed to be serious, but I couldn't stop laughing.

This alleged documentary has a running time of less than two hours, but it feels like a six hour mini-series!

GLITTER GODDESS OF THE SUNSET STRIP is a truly EXCRUCIATING experience. It's also incredibly pathetic, and one of the funniest unintentional comedies I've seen in years! In other words, I highly recommend it!.... ha-ha-ha.

Screengrab of the DIALY STAR website ( England ). Apparently, Ms. Lloyd claims to have had sex with ex-beetle John Lennon, among others.

Was this film ever released in theaters?... I hope not.

If I remember correctly, it was released on VHS. However, I can NOT remember the company responsible.

I found GLITTER GODDESS OF THE SUNSET STRIP in a twelve movie pack called FREAKSHOW CINEMA ( region one DVD by MILL CREEK ). It has three single sided discs. It was in my local WALMART's bargain bin, for five dollars.

View at your own risk.....

Another great poster from the 1970s.

Katie Saylor and William Smith are two of the stars.

Dyanne Thorne also makes an appearance.

It was written by Charles B. Griffith ( 1930 – 2007 ), and directed by Gus Trikonis.

In my opinion, THE SWINGING BARMAIDS is a fun flick. It's pure 70s trash, and that's why I love it!


I think Ms. Saylor is underrated. She deserves to be in some sort of drive-in / grindhouse hall of fame!.... If anyone ever gets around to creating one.

I don't know if THE SWINGING BARMAIDS ever had a legit VHS release in the United States. However, I did own a BOOTLEG tape when I was young.

As far as I know, this movie has NOT been released on legit region one DVD. I've been told grey-market discs are out there, but I've never seen one.



Screengrabs from THE APPEARED ( top ), and THE CLINIC ( bottom )

THE APPEARED and THE CLINIC have stirred-up a lot of emotions within me, so I need to VENT.

QUOTE by ex-president Eisenhower.....

"We must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist."

The good old days?!.... Headlines of Nixon's resignation - he was another TYRANNICAL SACK OF SHIT - from LA OPINION ( Los Angeles California U.S.A. )

One of the main story elements in the THE APPEARED, revolves around the AAA ( Alianza Anticomunista Argentina - Argentine Anticommunist Alliance ). The AAA practiced McCarthyism on steroids. Joseph McCarthy - may he BURN IN HELL - would have been proud!

Far too many idiots - especially abnormally obsessive horror fanatics - BASH movies like THE APPEARED and THE CLINIC. Those folks are obsessed with simple minded slasher flicks, that are made for twelve year old mentalities.

There is NOTHING WRONG with these movies. However, there IS something WRONG WITH THEM.

Screengrabs from a documentary called RAYMUNDO

During the COLD WAR era, the United States ( and it's friends ), and the former Soviet Union ( and it's pals ), used the Americas like a giant chess board. Most human beings were just disposable pawns in their selfserving and insane power trips.

All those governments helped create MONSTERS, and the scars created by those beasts, still have not healed.



QUOTES from the VOX NOVA website.....

"Kissenger apparently felt that having a Cold War ally was more important than objecting to the wide-spread human rights violations being committed in Argentina by far-right organizations (read: death squads) such as the Argentine Anticommunist Alliance"

"A press release from the National Security Archive reveals that in 1976 the Argentine regime worked around the U.S. Embassy in Argentine and directly with Kissinger, who downplayed the embassy’s clarion on human rights abuse"

Screengrab from THE APPEARED

QUOTES from the VOX NOVA website ( regarding Chile ).....

"The United States’long-standing support of Augusto Pinochet’s diabolically brutal regime is well documented since 1973. The oldest such record comes from recently declassified documents held at the National Security Archive"

QUOTES from the BBC website ( March 26, 1999 - England ).....

"Thatcher stands by Pinochet"

"The Lords also threw out almost all the charges levelled against him, since they pre-dated Britain's adoption of an international law allowing any nation to try anyone accused of torture.

"Lady Thatcher has campaigned for his release ever since his arrest in London"

The IRON SNATCH - aka Thatcher - was a TWO LEGGED SACK OF SHIT, and she was NO lady!


To everyone in the English government that protected the MONSTER called Pinochet... It is my sincerest wish, that you feel all the INDESCRIBABLE AGONY and SORROW that the families of Pinochet's victims felt, and continue to feel.

My sentiments apply to ALL the governments that helped create and support him - like my own.

Screengrabs from a documentary called RAYMUNDO

Below is a SMALL sample of the UNFORGIVABLE ACTS OF SAVAGERY that were committed here in the U.S.A.... Please remember, there are COUNTLESS documents that are still CLASSIFIED.

QUOTES from the NEW YORK POST website.....

"the Rockefeller Commission report was released, detailing a litany of domestic abuses committed by the CIA. The ugly truth emerged: Olson’s death was the result of his having been surreptitiously dosed with LSD days earlier by his colleagues"

"The shocking disclosure led to President Gerald Ford’s apology to Olson’s widow and his three children, who accepted a $750,000 civil payment for his wrongful death"

"Much of this plot unfolded here, in New York, according to H.P. Albarelli Jr., author of “A Terrible Mistake: The Murder of Frank Olson and the CIA’s Secret Cold War Experiments.”

Most folks seem to know about the TUSKEGEE SYPHILIS EXPERIMENTS and the New York LSD EXPERIMENTS, but there are COUNTLESS other ABOMINABLE ACTS that our government is guilty of!

Mentally challenged school boys were given doses of radioactive substances. Their parents were NEVER told the truth in consent forms. See quotes below.

QUOTES from MIT THE TECH - October 17, 1995

"Institute Charged in Fernald Radiation Experiment Lawsuit"

"The Institute has been charged in a lawsuit over radiation experiments MIT researchers conducted at a home for mentally retarded children during the 1950s"

"The lawsuit comes only days after an advisory committee to President Clinton released findings about thousands of human radiation experiments conducted during the Cold War, including the tests done at the Fernald School"


QUOTES below from THE NEW YORK TIMES ( October 1, 2010 )

"U.S. Apologizes for Syphilis Tests in Guatemala"

"From 1946 to 1948, American public health doctors deliberately infected nearly 700 Guatemalans — prison inmates, mental patients and soldiers — with venereal diseases in what was meant as an effort to test the effectiveness of penicillin"

"American tax dollars, through the National Institues of Health, even paid for syphilis-infected prostitutes to sleep with prisoners, since Guatemalan prisons allowed such visits. When the prostitutes did not succeed in infecting the men, some prisoners had the bacteria poured onto scrapes made on their penises, faces or arms, and in some cases it was injected by spinal puncture"

QUOTES below from CNN ( July 28, 2013 )

"North Carolina lawmakers OK payments for victims of forced sterilization"

"It was a horrific chapter in American history, but now some people who were sterilized against their will by the government may be getting compensation for what they endured"

"After going back and forth on the issue for 10 years, on Thursday the North Carolina legislature agreed to give $10 million to victims. If signed by the governor, North Carolina would become the first state to compensate sterilization victims"

"It's been a long hard fight," said state Rep. Larry Womble, who championed the cause. "We're trying to correct a wrong."

"It's believed that the government of North Carolina sterilized more than 7,000 people between 1929 and 1974. Of those, only about 200 have come forward, according to Charmaine Fuller-Cooper, former director of the North Carolina Justice for Sterilization Victims Foundation"


QUOTES below from THE NEW YORK TIMES ( October 1, 2010 )

"From 1963 to 1966, researchers at the Willowbrook State School on Staten Island infected retarded children with hepatitis to test gamma globulin against it. And in 1963, elderly patients at the Brooklyn Jewish Chronic Disease Hospital were injected with live cancer cells to see if they caused tumors"

I've only scratched the surface!

This type of behavior should make everyone's BLOOD BOIL!.... It should also make you MAD ENOUGH TO SPIT BULLETS!

I feel, as if my fellow citizens here in the U.S.A., are desensitised to all the depravity that occurs here - and elsewhere.

To all the DEGENERATES in every government of the world, that are guilty of VILE acts upon decent men, women, and children.... I hope you all get a taste of your own medicine, if not on this earth, then in HELL... If it exists.

EVERY government on earth - regardless of size - has BLOOD ON THEIR HANDS.

ON A RELATED NOTE..... The next time you see an advertisement for Michael and Roberta Findlay's SNUFF ( DVD or BLU-RAY ), and see that INSULTING BULLSHIT TAGLINE - "The film that could only be made in South America, where life is cheap!" - Remember what YOUR government is guilty of.....
