H.G. Wells was a blogger.

Long time readers (those of you that are still mentally stable) many recall this image which used to grace the sidebar of this blog.

Here’s an example.

While H.G. Wells may not have been a blogger, he knew them intimately. He knew the psyche of the type of person who wrote cranky letters to the editors of scientific journals. Or maybe just wrote mean letters to the local penny press. Who is more invisible than the anonymous blogger? Like the Invisible Man, the anonymous blogger blows up institutions, metaphorically. He uses words but the effect is the same. What put this into perspective was one of those internet “Which character are you?” quizzes. This one used Universal horror monsters (Dracula, Frankenstein’s monster, the Wolfman, The Invisible Man, etc.) I took the quiz and got The Invisible Man, and the accompanying graphic put it all in focus.

That sums up bloggers in my book. Of course, the “genius-level smart” and “extraordinarily clever” parts may exist only the blogger’s minds, but I say the “kind of a dick” part is right on the mark.

Take it from a blogger.

Late Night Movie House of Crap: The Bride of Frankenstein Music Video

25 Oct

October 25, 2012

I don’t usually double up on features but here is the second (and last, I promise) Late Night Movie House of the week. The reason behind the double dip is that last night, I was here:

Totally cool.

So today, the worlds of Universal Horror and Iron Butterfly collide. Enjoy the Bride of Frankenstein, set to In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida. Trust me, add in some classic Toccata and Fugue in D minor and it works wonderfully. Love the song, love the move, love the video.

The only bad thing is that it isn’t the epic 15 minute version.

BONUS! Who says Mr. BTR doesn’t love you? More I. Ron Butterfly!
