Youtube and my laptop and pics of Donovan  
Hi there everyone!

I am not ignoring anybody! I promise. The kids decided to sabotage my laptop by accidentally pouring grapefruit soda onto it.

Well, okay, maybe not onto it, but near it which crept into it via the tablecloth. To make a long story short, I lost the use of my keypad and the mouse.

I've been using the iMac which we got for Griffon. But it's really fucking hard to write or create anything when you've got everyone coming up behind me. I'm sort of stuck in one spot here.

I discovered many fascinating things on youtube though while I've been here. Did you know they post whole movies on there? I'm in old horror movie heaven! I've watched Prom Night, Slaughter High (which still sucks and is the latest one made in 1987), House on Sorority Row and The Dorm That Dripped Blood. I love 'old' (old as in movies made in the 70's and early 80's) horror/slasher movies, when 'slash' meant the ole hack and well...slash. Did you know that they remade the wonderful 70's horror classic Black Christmas in 2006. They posted that one (the 2006) in its entirety. Don't bother with that one. The original (with Olivia Hussey and Margot Kidder) was much, much better. This was just a gory re-hash.

Also, we bought Deathproof, the second movie that was shown on the Grindhouse movie back in May. There was a trailer on it for a movie called Black Sheep, a horror movie and no, it wasn't a faux trailer - it's a real movie.

A horror movie.

About killer sheep.

No shit.

I found a trailer of the movie on youtube. You just have to see it.

See what I mean?

Also, I bought Donovan's Halloween costume. I couldn't resist and the kid's crazy about everything Star Wars.

And of course, Rowan wanted to try it on also:

I've been running around for the past week going everywhere and trying to post, answering feedback and such and no one is cooperating with me.

Stupid busy RL. *pouts*

I had to grab the folding ladder from the shop tonight and bring Brandin home with me (one of our employees and my daughter's ex.) I know I've been watching too many horror films and clips when I looked at the ladder behind me in the Expedition:

Me: God, with that thing right behind me, I hope we don't have one of those accidents ala Final Destination.
Brandin: Ewwww...well we shouldn't.
Me: Don't be so sure. Probability is now high since one of the passengers in the car is a cute young male.

Yeah, Brandin certainly falls into the category of 'most likely to meet a horrible end' per the horror movie credo.

But we made it back in one piece.

I'm going to be writing hopefully (*crosses fingers*) tonight. I'm borrowing one of the girl's old laptops and taking it with me during one of my many errands.

Hope everything's good with everyone else.

Love you all, Maria.

Re: Very Black Sheep
I know!!! When I saw this trailer, I was like, ZOMG! Killer sheep! I mean...sheep!!!!

*is still hurting from laughing so much*

And thank you! :)

omg, I thought I was the only person in the world who knew the movie Black Christmas! That thing scared the shit out of me.

Donovan & Rowan look so cute! What's Rowan going to be?
Maria: Hello Kitty on a crossslave_o_spike on September 21st, 2007 04:26 am (UTC)
That was truly a very scary movie. Esp the part where Jess sees the eye looking back at her at the end and you realize he's IN THE HOUSE!!!!

And the scene in the attic.

That's how horror movies should be made. *nods head*

The remake? Oh God!!!! *spits* They show you the killer, he eats part of his victims, there's a mondo huge body count, it's incredibly gory, they show you his history. It's just bad.

Rowan will no doubt be some kind of princess, and with wings probably. Last year she was a dutchess (so cute) and the year before a fairy. She's quite girly that way. :)

Was there a slasher fic made in the 80's that didn't have Jamie Lee Curtis in it, LOL?

I really/not really want to see Rob Zombie's version of Halloween but I'm too afraid :O

I like Final Destination parts I and II but I thought three was lame. The highway scene and the ending in part II were awesome.

Your kids are so cute. I wish mine were still that young when it comes to Halloween. I've always made their costumes and done their hair and make-up. I do a very mean (and prize winning) zombie face.

Black Christmas is a freaking scary movie. I remember watching that as a kid. I haven't watched the remake though.

Maria: My Fandom has chainsawsslave_o_spike on September 21st, 2007 04:33 am (UTC)
Yes, Virgina, there were horror movies made in the 80's that did not have her. LOL! God, I love that part when they start disco dancing in Prom Night and then the part where Caveman Lou gets decapitated instead of Nick.

Couldn't happen to a nicer guy.

I've seen the trailer of Rob Zombie's latest creation and it looks pretty gory. I'm getting a little sick of the gore to tell you the truth. John Carpenter's Halloween was AMAZING!!! There is not one drop of blood seen (well, there probably is) but it's implied and it scares the hell out of you all the same. I must admit though, Rob Zombie and Halloween does beg to be seen.

Yeah, that highway scene is to die for. Literally. I thought the second was better than the first and I didn't even bother with the third.

Thank you! They are cuties. :) I've made costumes and have bought them. I saw this one in the store and bought it. He's such a Star Wars hound.

And Black Christmas is a very scary movie. See what I said about the remake and the original in court1429's comments above. A classic that was remade into a real dud.

lol...Chance and I were just talking about the Friday the 13th, and Nightmare on Elm Street movies last night.

OMG I SAW the trailer for Black Sheep awhile ago...someone got some of the shit cooked up in Anita's basement!

Hmmm....I see a fic coming out of this. Or maybe just incorporated into "Look Ma"
Maria: Brian and Tedslave_o_spike on September 21st, 2007 04:37 am (UTC)
I am so not writing killer sheep into the cannibal verse. Not even having Mikey FUCK the sheep and...

Oh God! Ted could so fuck the sheep. And when they go on their murderous rampage because of the trauma of the forced sodomy at the hands of Ted that they suffered, they turn into cannibalistic sheep.

And instead of eating Ted, they accidentally eat Mikey. But they miss, and only get one of his kidneys which would now leave Mikey without one of his kidneys and his spleen.

Then in an urban legend type of spinoff, someone takes his liver, which of course leaves Mikey without his liver, one of his kidneys and his spleen...

I could do this forever you know...

Then zombies attack, eating Mikey's brain. (BRAAAAIIIINNNNNNSSSS....)Leaving him without a spleen, kidney, liver, and brain.

Oh, wait.

He never had one of those to begin with.

I KNOW! It eats his testicles!
Maria: BJ Halloweenslave_o_spike on September 21st, 2007 05:02 am (UTC)

The brain! God I forgot that one too! Or is it, God forgot to put one in Mikey? LOL!

Ewww....testicle eating zombies.

Now that's just ridiculous.

So Mikey has no testicles, no brain, no liver, one kidney and no spleen.

*pets the poor monkey*
sevigny7sevigny7 on September 21st, 2007 04:50 am (UTC)
Ew ew ew. No horror movies. The only one I ever (sort of) watched was "Vincent Price's Tales of Terror" or something like that. I was eleven years old, and traumatized forever.

That said, I have no idea why I love your horror-inflected fic so much.



*Goes to bed. Trying to have happy thoughts.*
Maria: aliens harsh languageslave_o_spike on September 21st, 2007 05:03 am (UTC)
They have gotten too gory now. Ewwww...

I know of the movie of which you speak. That would be very traumatizing.

When Alien first came out, I was 15 and my sister was 25. She needed therapy after witnessing that alien popping out of John Hurt scene.

I said 'cool.'

critic75critic75 on September 21st, 2007 07:53 am (UTC)
I really don't like horror movies unless I find them funny, and I do believe 'killer sheep' qualifies, as I laughed through the entire trailer. I never watched ANY of the 'Freddie' movies, and only the original Halloween flick. True horror should be left to the imagination, not caused by spurting buckets of colored red stage blood. That's just sick. I didn't enjoy "The 300" for that reason. Even with all those luscious male bodies in it. They even filmed it in a rather sepia tone, and the only bright, vivid color was the red blood. Yecch.
For horror with imagination, bring back Boris Karloff, John Carradine, and Bela Lugosi, and keep the severed limbs, stage blood, and spurting arteries in a locked closet with no key.

Hooray for Star Wars and the cutest little Jedi's that ever wielded a laser.
Maria: Nosferatuslave_o_spike on October 3rd, 2007 12:35 am (UTC)
Hey you! Hope you got my email. You know, I never liked the whole 'let's dismember everyone in the movie' movie but I do like a good slasher movie that holds it's suspense or has a good creepy tone (The Prowler, Black Christmas and Halloween). I do get tired of the Jason and Freddy franchise. Hell, I hate the Halloween franchise for that matter!

Yeah, 300 was a bit gory, but then so was the graphic novel (putting the 'graphic' back into 'graphic novel.')

I LOVE John Carradine!

And yep, he's a cutie! Rowan's gonna be Princess Leia. :)
shadownycshadownyc on September 21st, 2007 10:52 am (UTC)
Your kids look so cute in the Jedi costume. Does Rowan want to be a Jedi now, too?

I think you deserve a little time off from RL, don't you? *winks*
Maria: Bad Mommyslave_o_spike on October 3rd, 2007 12:36 am (UTC)
I'm still waiting for that time off form RL. LOL!

Rowan's gonna be Princess Leia. A wig came with the costume but it looks terrible! So we'll hairspray her hair black and wrap it into buns. :)

LMAO !!!!!!!!!!

It's one of the craziest, dumbiest, awful thing I've ever seen.And I love it !!! LMAO thanx for sharing this jewel.
The pics of your kids are great, they're just too cute.My birthady is in 3 days...can I have the cannibal story's update please.Pretty,pretty please...eh eh ! Aida
Maria: Gale Misunderstood Cannibalslave_o_spike on October 3rd, 2007 12:39 am (UTC)
Re: LMAO !!!!!!!!!!
Yes, the sheep is for real. Seriously.

I am so so so so so sorry about missing your b-day. I missed everyone's b-day! I'll just make sure to get you a belated b-day pressie (like a cannibal update).

I NEED to update cannibla and justin's baby before Halloween! Hell yeah!

We've made arrangements so I can use a separate laptop for writing until this puppy is fixed.

Again, I hope you had a happy happy birthday and I promise I'm going to do something for ya! *gives you a 'I'm sorry' puppy dog eyes*

OK, didn't you know you are not supposed to have a real life? :) Donovan and Rowan look great in the Jedi costumes.

You SO have to put traumatized, murderous, testicle/brain/kidney eating sheep in cannibalverse! Cuz they just might run out of cows to put on the highway, and the last straw is when they put one of the sheep as bait in the highway and the other sheep start rampaging.

With that thought in mind I have to get to work. Yeah, I'll get a lot done!

Maria: graveyardslave_o_spike on October 3rd, 2007 12:40 am (UTC)
No RL?

Tell the hubby, the kids and the shop! *pouts*

And the laptop!

I was thinking of putting the sheep in there. Seriously. Sheep traumatized by Ted.


And I need a killer sheep icon so bad!

LOL! *hugs you back*
Bluemchenkaffee: galebluemchenkaffee on September 21st, 2007 07:52 pm (UTC)
Get ready for the violence of the lambs !?! LOL
Unfortunately this movie never made it to German cinemas :)

Your kids are so cute!!!

Maria: BJ Halloweenslave_o_spike on October 3rd, 2007 12:48 am (UTC)

I love that title. VIOLENCE OF THE LAMBS. They so need a sheep with a hockey mask on it's face ala Hannibal.

LOL! I'm starting to have a baa-aaa-aaa-aad influence on you...:)

Thank you! They can be cute...now.

Of course, that's a horror movie all on its own. *cue scary music*

Hi, sweetie. Saw the movie the other day. Still not sure what to think about the trailer. :) I don't think I'll be watching it.
Maria: Nosferatuslave_o_spike on October 3rd, 2007 12:46 am (UTC)
You just saw Deathproof? I love that movie.

I'm not seeing the sheep movie even on a bet! LOL! It's just so wrong...

It's like something I'd write...
