...randomness surrounding Guided by Voices, Robert Pollard, and other great indie rock bands; a quasi objective look at "my" sporting teams; the random horror film; plus other crap as we see fit...all with a Pittsburgh based feel.

Lizard In a Woman's Skin

aka: Schizoid. Y'all know my affection for 70's and 80's horror, and especially Italian horror. Some of those films may appear "cheesy" to some. This one, is not. On the contrary, a beautifully done thriller / mystery by one of the greats, Lucio Fulci (Zombi 2). Masterfully shot hallucination scenes, acid dropping hippies, hair-pulling bats, suspenseful chase scenes, great performances including Florinda Bolkan (plus other Italian babes), and a well written who-dunnit story line make this one of the better Italian giallo films I've ever seen.

I've heard some refer to this as Fulci's "masterpiece." It may be...

C'mon Inter!!!! C'mon Barca!!!!

Unlike their Champions League Semis match-up, I can now root for both of "my" teams as they win their respective league titles.

5 straight Scudettos for Inter?

Real Madrid's record off season spendings prove to be a giant waste as Barca secures a 2nd straight La Liga title?

Could be a GREAT day.

The Hate Crosby Club

In order to be a card carrying member, you must abide by the following Hate Crosby Club Constitution:
  • Any sense or sight of frustration seen with Sidney Crosby must be related to the #1 mantra of the Hate Crosby Club: "Crosby Cries!"
  • Any hint of Crosby being cordial or well spoken should be excused as Crosby being "bland", "boring", or "well-trained."
  • As a member of the Hate Crosby Club, you must automatically like Alexander Ovechkin. If a pro-Crosby idiot speaks to Ovie's repeat offender status or forced celebrations, the answer must always refer to Ovie's "passion."
  • There are no better three syllables in the English language than "Cros-by Sucks." You must learn how to chant this, and you must practice at home with your kids. Breed the hate.
  • When approached about Crosby's record of winning a Stanley Cup, the only acceptable response is: "Bettman fixed it so Crosby would win." (note: the board of directors of The Hate Crosby Club are busy at work figuring out an excuse to use for Crosby winning a Gold medal. We will update these rules as necessary and as soon as possible).
  • Never forget your forefather: Mr. Ken Hitchcock. Despite currently being jobless, never forget that it was Ken Hitchcock who started the original Crosby Dives Campaign. He should be held in high esteem (despite being jobless), because we would not be here without him. Mr. Hitchcock likes to eat (despite being jobless), so any donations you can spare should be sent directly through the Hate Crosby Club. Also, a portion of your yearly dues will be dispersed directly to the Feed Ken Hitchcock Fund.
Lastly, and most importantly: while watching Crosby play, you may get confused. Resist the temptation of being mesmerized by skill or talent. Your mission, as is the mission of the Hate Crosby Club, is not to admire hockey skill. Your mission is to hate.
