  1. Mine arrived in Toronto today. Top notch packing from End of An Ear. Basically a mailer inside another mailer. Looking forward to playing this tonight.
  2. I got a shipping notification from End of An Ear today. Looks like these are getting sent out a little early.
  3. I got a new job a few months ago which has given me way, way better work-life balance, which means more time for horror movies 🙂 Some of the movies I've watched lately... The Town that Dreaded Sundown (1976). I really liked this movie. Considering I usually like my slashers with a healthy dose of gore and sleaze, I was surprised how much I enjoyed this one. Really great atmosphere here and for some reason the narration stuck a chord with me too. Allegedly based on a true story, this one is about a mystery killer terrorizing a town at night (hence the title). Hoping to catch the 2014 remake if/when it comes to Canadian Shudder. Fatal Exam (1990). I actually watched this twice because I didn't want to be unfair to it but I feel like I deserve a medal for spending 4+ hours of my life with this movie. I once thought "Don't Panic" was the worst horror movie I've ever seen but this might just be the worst movie I've ever seen - period. It's a haunted house/possession movie but it's so amateurish, badly written, badly acted, and badly recorded (yes, even the sound is noticeably bad) that it crosses from "so bad it's good" to just really, really bad. It isn't scary and it's far too long. Scare Package (2020). I can see how people would like this movie but it was a little too self-aware and meta for me. It's a horror comedy anthology that pokes fun at horror tropes. Joe Bob Briggs has a cameo, which I enjoyed, but overall it winks at the audience a little too much for my taste. A Bay of Blood (1971). A slasher with sleaze and gore - my favourite! Really dug this one. Had never really heard of it before but it was part of my journey through slasher history. Some good kills in this movie and now I see the "inspiration" for some of the F13 kills. Glad I stumbled across this movie.
  4. For EN, there were night/day variants with different coloured sleeves and vinyl and there were also variants with the "Everything Now" title written in different languages.
  5. I really want to like this album but I'm one of the people turned off by some of the cringey lyrics. I'd say the weaker points for me are the beginning of "Rabbit Hole" (however Regine's part in the last third is amazing and an album highlight), "Race and Religion", and "End of the Empire IV". Best parts are the already released singles + "End of the Empire I-III", "WE" and "Age of Anxiety I". So basically two and a half songs on the album don't really do it for me. Otherwise, pretty solid. The music itself is really great and overall I'd still put WE ahead of Everything Now. I kinda feel like the first singles leaned more towards"classic" Arcade Fire while the more dancey elements from Everything Now and Reflektor are still alive and well in other songs. I'm not asking for Funeral II but I wish they would stop trying to write songs about the internet. Or at least come up with less clunky lyrics. Looking forward to seeing them on SNL tonight. Edited cause I got "WE" and part of "End of the Empire" mixed up.
  6. Another song was released today, "Unconditional I (Lookout Kid)". I think it's on most streaming services now. There's a great live video from Coachella too. Really liking it. I imagine it'll pull at the heartstrings of the parents out there.
  7. Pete Davidson! I will keep an eye out for this one. Looks good. Initially, the trailer made me think of the movie "Body" (2015) but I think it's just the similar titles, the plot involving a dead body in a house, and predominantly female casts. I liked "Body" and think it's a bit better than the 42% it got on Rotten Tomatoes. Three girls accidentally kill a guy in a house they snuck into and try to plan their way out of it. Not really ground breaking but I thought it was solid. I am also debating if it's worth paying $15 to rent "X" or just wait until it shows up on some streaming service. I think I'll probably just wait.
  8. If anybody else missed out on the DA exclusive splatter variant, there are some "warehouse finds" available for RSD: https://www.dinealonestore.com/collections/rsd2022-dine-alone-warehouse-finds/products/the-dirty-nil-fuck-art-splatter-lp-vinyl
  9. Thanks! Preordered as well. Curious that the release date is listed as August 26 though.
  10. I reached out to Barsuk and it turns out this record isn't going to be sold in Canada. Apparently there's rights issues or whatever with Atlantic and this is a US-only release. Back to scouring the internet for US links.
  11. Is the link you ordered from still active? I'd prefer to get it local (or at least Canadian) but if it comes down to spending an extra $20 vs. missing out, then I guess I'll spend the money. This has been on my want list since RSD 2014.
  12. Also looking for a lead on this one.... I reached out to a couple local shops in Toronto and both have said they can't find the listing to place an order.
  13. Square Enix is pressing the Chrono Cross: Radical Dreamers edition soundtrack. Currently up for preorder with an estimated ship date of late June 2022. https://store.na.square-enix-games.com/en_US/product/725855/chrono-cross-the-radical-dreamers-edition-vinyl Heads up, shipping cost (at least to Canada) is kinda crazy and if you order anything else with the PO, they will split the orders and you have to pay shipping twice.
  14. Ugh. Was so busy with work today that I missed the DA exclusive. Hope some more pop up for RSD. Optimal Lifestyles was excellent so I am looking forward to this one
  15. It has its share of headscratcher moments, and it drives some religious themes pretty hard, but I had a good time with it. Not a perfect movie by any means but it is fun.
  16. That is a great movie. I don't know how many times I watched it before I realized Gary Oldman was Dracula. I've finally had some time to get back to horror stuff again and have been kinda aimlessly picking things on Shudder. In the past few weeks I watched... Castle Freak (1995). Spooky naked goblin lives in a castle (duh) and terrorizes occupants. Pretty straightforward story but I enjoyed it. Didn't pick up on the cast/director connection with Reanimator until afterwards. Castle Freak (2020). Didn't enjoy it as much as the original. Started off thinking it was a note-for-note remake and then it took a weird left turn into (incestuous?) sex cults. The plot felt kind of forced into being overly complicated and all of the characters were unlikeable. Hellmaster (1992). I picked this at random and ended up really liking it. Scratched an itch for the vibe of a late 80's/early 90's horror movie with gross monsters, a mad scientist and dumb students who get killed. I also finished watching the Deadhouse Dark series. Like any anthology, it's a little hit and miss but it has some good episodes. The episodes are short (less than 20 minutes) and there's only six so it's a pretty easy watch.
  17. I think it's officially been 1 year since I pre-ordered the Scott Pilgrim vs. the World video game soundtrack from Limited Run. I guess there is nothing that can be done about pressing delays and the hold up is with Abkco but still... Anyone else still waiting?
  18. This is/was awesome and I'm sad I missed the bundle. "Sometimes I Cry" was my soundtrack to grade 11. Gonna have to track down a copy.
  19. Nice! Encore is great. Bought from them many times. I also ordered this record from them earlier today and they've already shipped it.
  20. Red copy up here from a Canadian store: https://encorerecords.ca/products/radiohead-kid-a-mnesia-3lp?_pos=15&_sid=736f6f71a&_ss=r
  21. I want to get in on some page 100 action too Unfortunately my October viewing wasn't quite what I would ideally hope for. Lately I watched the first three Nightmare on Elm Street movies. Really liked them all, actually. Not a huge fan of some of the sillier stuff (hello budgie attack in Part 2) but the I love the surreal dream/nightmare horror aspects. Otherwise I've just had AMC FearFest on in the background during my workday and caught the standard staples like Halloween (1978), The Omen (1976 and 2006) and bits and pieces of some of the Final Destination movies. I also watched Cujo and most of Christine this morning. I also realized this is the first year in a while that I didn't watch Trick'r Treat. I will have to get on that
  22. That sounds like a tough situation. I don't want to get all up in your business with suggestions but I feel for you. That's a hard spot to be in, for sure. Hopefully you've got resources and support if you need someone to talk to or some help. Hell, you could even chat with me if you want. Not trying to overstep, just thought I'd offer. Maintaining good mental health is really important.
  23. Thanks man. I really appreciate you taking the time to read and respond. I truly do. Maybe it's me but it feels like a lot of kindness and empathy is missing from the world right now so it's great to have a little support space here. Sorry to hear you're going through some stuff too. It sounds difficult and stressful as well. I can only imagine what it's like living with family right now after 18 months of built-up covid tension. I hope you're getting support too and have an outlet for some happiness. We'll get through this.
