Just finished reading This Book is Full of Spiders by David Wong-my favorite read so far this year. It’s an excellent concoction of horror, comedy and pop-culture references. Here are some awesome excerpts from it:
“SHUT UP. Both of you. You’re coming with me.” To me he said, “Put some pants on.”
"Fuck you. This is my house. I make the rules. You take your clothes off. John, get the Twister mat.”
“John and I have made this stuff our hobby, in the way that an especially attractive prisoner makes a hobby out of not getting raped. Jesus, that’s a terrible analogy. I apologize. What I’m saying is that it’s self-preservation. We didn’t choose this, we just have talents that makes us the equivalent of that new guy in the cell block who has a slim, hairless body and kind of looks like a woman from behind, and has an incredibly realistic tattoo of boobs on his back. He may have no desire at all to ever even touch a penis, but it’s going to happen, even if it’s just in the process of frantically slapping them away. Jesus, am I still talking about this? [John—please delete the above paragraph before it goes off to the publisher].”
So, I just watched The Grey last night. When I first saw this I judged it by the cover. I was tired of seeing trailers for his movie Taken and was like “oh, this is probably the same as Taken, but in cold weather” WRONG. This movie is basically a story about Liam Neeson and a bunch of Oil Rig workers that survive a plane crash and have to fight wolves. Liam Neeson’s occupation in the movie happens to be a wolf hunter, so he’s a badass. In summary, LIAM NEESON VS HUGE WOLVES. If this sounds appealing, this movie is for you.
