I would not be and i'm damned if I ever gave anyone the idea that I would be.
That is just a lie.

At first I thought walking the plank was an invention of Treasure Island, like damned near every other pirate trope you can think of (Peg legs, treasure maps marked with an X, "The Black Spot", you name it). But I looked it up and the pedant is wrong. It wasn't a COMMON practice.. But pirates did do it occasionally. It was just a very rare thing. Like three or four known instances

But did they hang your guys from a fucking yard-arm?
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

I have watched that many times, actually. I enjoy it. Early (and I mean REALLY early, silent film early like this movie) horror is a weird hobby of mine.

Considerably from the older version I remember. I like the scene with the monster being created. That had to have been some scary shit in 1910.

The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

Universal Putting Classic Monster Movies Including ‘Dracula’ and ‘Frankenstein’ Up for Free YouTube Streaming

Image

There’s a good chance you probably already own multiple copies of Universal’s classic monster movies, but those who haven’t yet added them to their collections will be happy to hear that Universal is bringing several of the top classics to YouTube this month… for free!

Originally announced by NME, the Universal Monsters will be making their way to the YouTube account Fear: The Home of Horror beginning on Friday, January 15th.

Uncle Forry. Aka Forrest J Ackerman. One of my idols. I loved “Famous Monsters of Filmland” magazine. I miss it
How the everlivin' fuck did I miss this. The first check (cheque) I ever wrote was for a subscription to "Famous Monsters of Filmland."

Oh, and yes I learned how to jerk off shortly thereafter .

I was quite jealous of a friend who had a huge collection. My mom wouldn’t let me get a subscription to it (it wasn’t that she didn’t want me reading it, it was that we were quite poor).

Though I must say, Fid, that last sentence was kind of a weird flex.
