He likes to gallop in the rain, 'cause he hasn't got a brain. He's my broken-down bronco Bruce...

I loved this song from the ELECTRIC COMPANY when I was a kid. I still sing it to myself sometimes...

TOPLESS ROBOT interviews the always awesome Don Coscarelli!

 

Yesterday, I ran an interview with acclaimed actor Paul Giamatti about his performance and executive producer in the odd horror/comedy/sci-fi/drug-trip flick John Dies at the End. Following our conversation, I got to talk to his director, Don Coscarelli, who has a track record of making cult films that get remembered, from The Beastmaster to Phantasm to Bubba Ho-Tep. The oddball auteur's latest feels like one that will similarly endure, so long as people get to see it.

Yes, some of the questions are very similar, but Coscarelli's take on things, as always, is his own. And some answers will become clearer after you've seen the film. Or maybe not - it's a weird one. But unlike some other filmmakers out there, this is one director who trusts the audience to figure things out for themselves, and while that doesn't always make for massive profits, it has bought him an intensely loyal following over the years...

Will the trailer for the sequel to VHS give you pause?

I thought the first one was just OK but not great in an Amicus Anthology kind of way. Still looking forward to the new one.

(Insane News) Man outsources his own job to China

Found via FARK

 

A security audit of a US critical infrastructure company last year revealed that its star developer had outsourced his own job to a Chinese subcontractor and was spending all his work time playing around on the internet.

The firm's telecommunications supplier Verizon was called in after the company set up a basic VPN system with two-factor authentication so staff could work at home. The VPN traffic logs showed a regular series of logins to the company's main server from Shenyang, China, using the credentials of the firm's top programmer, "Bob".

"The company's IT personnel were sure that the issue had to do with some kind of zero day malware that was able to initiate VPN connections from Bob's desktop workstation via external proxy and then route that VPN traffic to China, only to be routed back to their concentrator," said Verizon. "Yes, it is a bit of a convoluted theory, and like most convoluted theories, an incorrect one."..

(Insane News) Member of Seal Team Six steals soda and Slim Jims while carrying Satan in his backpack.

From FARK

A man told police he was on a military mission when caught shoplifting Sunday afternoon at a supermarket in East Athens.
Robert Anthony Leseueur, 36, was arrested at the Kroger on College Station Road for drinking a soda and eating a beef stick, then trying to leave the store without paying, Athens-Clarke police said.

Police said store managers caught Leseueur attempting to leave and held him until an officer arrived.

Leseueur first explained that “someone on the Internet had told him to come get those items,” the officer wrote in an incident report.
While speaking with Leseueur, it became apparent to the officer that he has some sort of issue, which was blacked out in a copy of the officer’s report made public on Monday.

“He stated that he works for Seal Team Six and was on a special mission,” the officer wrote in the report.

“He also informed me that he had caught Satan and had him in a bottle in his bookbag...”

THE COLD INSIDE (a serial novel) Chapter Twenty-one part two


THE COLD INSIDE
Chapter Twenty-one
part two
by AL BRUNO III

December 5, 1994

Christmas posters and garland decorated the cafeteria. Someone had already defaced one of them, drawing a cartoon arrow through the baby Jesus' head. Tristam almost had to admire the audacity of it. “Did I ever tell you guys that my grandfather killed himself?”

Warren smirked, “This before or after he saw you?”

“Holy shit man!” Rich punched the heavy-set boy on the arm, “That was low even for you.”

The popular kids' table was in turmoil, no one was sitting in their usual spot. That usually meant trouble. Monique was sitting at the end of the first table, as far away from Evan as she could. Tristam couldn’t stop glancing her way.

Adelphos asked, “What happened with your grandfather?”

“He cut his own throat.”

“Bullshit.” Warren snorted.

“No really.” Tristam said, he'd never known the man and he enjoyed telling the gruesome little tale, “He went to work and on his way back home he went to this old abandoned building in Troy and cut his own throat.”

“Again, bullshit.” Warren had already finished eating, all he'd had was a granola bar and some fruit.

“At least that's the story my Dad tells me.”

Warren was about to speak again when Rich talked over him, “Christmas must be a bummer at your place.”

Tristam shrugged, “By the way I'm sorry I got grounded again and missed the game.”

“No biggie.” Greg said, “We're still getting the new campaign under way. They spent half the session getting into trouble at the inn.”

Yusuf banged his fist on the table, “Stupid gnome pickpockets.”

“Besides Drew couldn't make it either.” Warren got up to throw away his lunch bag. He walked to the far end of the cafeteria, braving the jeers of the other kids just so he could check out Solana.

Tristam asked Drew “Did you get in trouble for the snowball fight?”

Drew spoke without looking up from her macaroni and cheese, “No.”

Yusuf clapped Tristam on the shoulder, “I am sorry that you got in trouble for helping us.”

“And I am sorry I got my tallywacker covered with snow,” Rich added.

Greg adjusted his glasses, “Tallywacker?”

“Well it was worth it.” Tristam looked over to see Kenny Wurman and Bobby Hilton waggling their tongues at them.

Warren jerked his thumb towards them, “You expect us to believe you’d rather be here than with the beautiful people?”

Tristam said, “You can believe whatever the Hell you like.”

“The Dean.” Adelphos asked, “Did he give you his Keep a low profile speech?”

“Yeah.”

“And he tries to act all like he's doing you a favor by giving you detention.”

Rich finished his sandwich and pulled a container of pudding from his lunch bag, “I much prefer his Your parents spend good money to send you here why are you wasting it and our time? speech.”

Yusuf laughed “How about the one where he says There is a time and a place for exploring yourself but not on school grounds?”

Everyone at the table froze.

Yusuf blushed “He gave that one to Warren.”

Adelphos leaned back in his chair, “You're kidding right?”

Warren said, “I was in kindergarten.”

Drew had her arms crossed over her chest, “I wish we were still in kindergarten.”

The whistling and jeers coming from the front table were getting louder. Evan was pawing at Yvonne. She moaned his name theatrically over and over again until one of the lunchroom attendants approached with fire in their eyes. Tristam thought aloud, “Sometimes I think we still are in kindergarten.”
