Re: “Scary Story Open Thread 2014

Thanks for the tip! I got lucky that the two above happen to be online.

Re: “Scary Story Open Thread 2014

Definitely "The Bees" by Dan Chaon. I first read it in McSweeney's a while back. Selected Shorts did a whole episode where they read it (it's long) that's available on the podcast. Unfortunately can't find a complete link online.

Re: “Recap: 12 Hours of Terror at The Belcourt

Did you make it through INSIDE? I turned around when it was over, and half the theater had emptied behind me. (When Beatrice Dalle's Terminatrix advanced on the pregnant, immobile heroine with a pair of scissors, a guy behind me whimpered, "Oh, shit.")

One woman had driven all the way from Memphis, and after THE BABADOOK (which really shook up most folks) she was loudly complaining, "When is this going to get scary?" She was pretty quiet after INSIDE.

Re: “Recap: 12 Hours of Terror at The Belcourt

Is the author seriously implying the only women who were there were keeping their spouses company? Come on, Scene, I expect better than this. I was one of many women there dragging a male friend to see some kickass horror. Sexism looks bad on you guys.

Re: “Photo of the Day: Tim Kerr's Fond Object Mural

I hate that damn mural! Ugly and has nothing to do with Inglewood. Go back to Austin!

Doyle, that's exactly what I said about Teddy calling the hooker!

Re: “Halloween '14: A List of Live Evil — Parties, Pub Crawls, Plays, Events, Movies and More

You'll find those and a whole lot more in the list of music events at our sister blog Nashville Cream:…

We'll post the link in the story above also.

Re: “Nashville Recap: ‘Nobody Said It Was Going to Be Easy’

Dear "Nashville,"
Please add Ashley and Doyle to the writing staff NOW. You need people with good senses of humor on board before you start breaking the "Jeff Fordham blackmails Rayna into letting Maddie and Daphne sign with Edgehill by threatening to release a video of Teddy cavorting with an escort" storyline.

Re: “The Greatest Band Ever is Coming to the Nashville Symphony! Sort Of ...

I thought I was reading about "us." For the past nine years Peeps: Freddie Friends has enjoyed everything QBC does except geographically we are spread all over the world. We began as a youtube group but the format changed so we went to Facebook where we have been for the past 6 years. We have 22 hand-picked members; our youngest is 21 but Hanna was 12 when she joined. I'm the oldest @71. All lifestyles, religions, races, and ages are represented. As Queen toured and will tour with Adam, nine of our members will have seen the concert; only two members saw Queen live. Countries represented in our group: England, Norway, The Netherlands, India, UAE, Philippines, Israel, and America. In addition to The Music, we study Ancient Persian culture, current Iranis and Parsis culture. There has always been an ongoing interest in Zoroastrianism among our members and from time to time we enjoy fleshing out the Zoroastrian Riddles from many of Freddie's lyrics.. We keep up with Jer, Kashmira, Peter F, and Mary (elusive). Of all aspects of Freddie, his phonographic eidetic memory is my personal favorite subject; his mind was much like Mozart's but his Bipolar traits were better controlled than Wolfie's. Basically, we are just like QBC except all of our communications are on the internet/email/phone. I think being a "fan" is probably low on our list of priorities though there is some of that, too. Peeps is more of a "study" group than a "fan" group. Every member keeps "legacy" at the forefront because we, like you, are aware of the quality of The Music, so we want it to be known by every generation that comes down the pike. Cudos to Abby White; this piece is well written and greatly appreciated by our members; it has been posted in our group. Long Live The Queen.

Re: “Nashville Recap: ‘Nobody Said It Was Going to Be Easy’

I'm hoping Teddy was calling the hooker to hire her to be the nanny.

What about the Division St. Block Party and
Battle for the Bones concert?

Re: “Nashville Recap: ‘Nobody Said It Was Going to Be Easy’

Vomited up puddle of candy corn! Ohhhhh Ashley. You never fail to impress. I am only glad Scarlett still exists so you may describe her insufferable antics.

I remember Coleman.

Juliette was EVERYTHING this episode, and you're right, Rayna is THE WORST. She actually deserves smarmalicious, waxed chested Luke. Her hair reached new levels of wavy chestnut perfection, however. God this show. THIS SHOW. What could even save it at this point?

Re: “Nashville Recap: ‘Nobody Said It Was Going to Be Easy’

As soon as "hire a nanny" was mentioned, I immediately thought "Teddy will skeez out on her and have sexy/scandal times". JB's firing of Zoe was classic JB! Scarlett needs some lessons on what you do and do not do while hanging out alone in the city. #blessherheart If I created a drinking game whereby I took a shot every time I heard "Highway 65" on this show, I would be stone cold passed out before the first commercial. This was a fun one to watch. Great recap!

Re: “John Carpenter's Halloween? On Halloween? At a Real Drive-In?

That's awesome. (Way better than hearing John Goodman describe Murfreesboro as "a flyspeck horseshit town" in INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS.) Seeing HALLOWEEN in 1978 was a thrill because it hadn't yet been imitated to death: watching it then, I understood how my parents felt when they talked about seeing PSYCHO when it first came out.

And seeing it at a drive-in? Get outta town.

Re: “John Carpenter's Halloween? On Halloween? At a Real Drive-In?

Seeing Halloween II on opening night (Oct. 30, 1981) in Bowling Green, Kentucky was pretty great. The movie is littered with Bowling Green street and place names, because Carpenter grew up in B.G., and at the time, hardly anyone in Bowling Green knew who he was. Every time a place or street name was mentioned the audience was creeped out a little bit more, and by the end, people were totally freaking out.

Re: “Nashville Recap: 'Road Happy'

My prediction (b/c homeless guy is Mykelti Williamson, who doesn't get hired for just two scenes) is that Homeless Magical Negro turns out to be a down-on-his-luck old famous singer from the day. Whose career will be resurrected.

Re: “Nashville Recap: 'Road Happy'

The cray cray has been upped to alarming levels and not in a good way. 2 observations from this episode:

1. Juliette actually calls her assistant "Emily". To her face.

2. In the preview for next week, Maddie kisses Luke's son. I'm guessing that's the #dealbreaker for Rayna/Layna. #flowersintheattic

Re: “Nashville Recap: 'Road Happy'

Glenn's toupee - from the Anne Murray collection? Not sure. Looks even more faux now that we've actually seen dat dome. I should have been more moved by Scarlett's interaction with the homeless man but I couldn't get past the terrible lines they gave that poor guy. He's been laying next to a fence, caterwauling about pizza for days but then suddenly becomes full-on perfectly sane when Scar' pays him a visit? Not sure where this storyline is going but I'm preparing to groan.
