How Billy Loves Stu Saved Christmas!

Well, not Christmas exactly, but my weekend and that’s as near as damn it, and I’m confident that Billy Loves Stu could save Christmas if it was necessary.

I had a pretty crappy weekend. Predominately the reason for this is that my darling mother had to have much beloved dog put to sleep, which is sad enough, but my poor ma is heartbroken, completely and inconsolably devastated and this has made me very sad too. Also my husband made me watch Hot Tub Time Machine.

Fortunately, king of all things awesome. Pax Romano of Billy Loves Stu, had thoughtfully produced The First Ever Billy Loves Stu Meme for Horror Bloggers and reading the many responses to this made me very happy and giggly and cheered me up immensely thus saving my weekend, until my husband made me watch 2012 last night. God damn it, John Cusack, what did I ever do to you? So, in attempt to get my week rocking and to obliterate the awfulness of, well, Hot Tub Time Machine mainly, I thought I’d have a go myself.

1: In Ten Words or Less, Describe Your Blog:
Leather-clad inconsequential drivel with a heart of gold. Like Cher.

2: During What Cinematic Era Where you Born?
A: The Classic Horror Era (late 30's to 40's)
B: The Atomic Monster/Nuclear Angst Era (the late 40's through 50's)
C: The Psycho Era ( Early 60's)
D: The Rosemary's Baby Era (Mid to Late 60's)
E: The Exorcism Era (Early to mid 70's)
F: The Halloween Era (Late 70's to Early 80's)
G: The Slasher Era (Mid to late 80's)
H: The Self Referential/Post Modern Era (1990 to 1999)

I’m from the Exorcism Era. Nothing says the seventies more than disco and an exorcism.

3: The Carrie Compatibility Question:
(gay men and straight women - make your choice from section A)
A: Billy Nolan or Tommy Ross, who would you take to the prom?
(straight guys and lesbians - make your choice from section B)
B: Sue Snell or Chris Hargensen, who would you take to the prom?

Well, I asked Carrie, but apparently she was washing her hair. So I guess I’d go with Tommy, but I’d be thinking about Chris.

4: You have been given an ungodly amount of money, and total control of a major motion picture studio - what would your dream Horror project be?

I’d like to think it would be something awesome, original and groundbreaking, but it’ll probably just be sharks in space starring Ron Perlman.

5: What horror film "franchise" that others have embraced, left you cold?

He was my first so my heart belongs to Jason. (Everything about that sentence sounded wrong). I don’t understand Saw, I mean really, I don’t understand it in any capacity.

6: Is Michael Bay the Antichrist?

Yes, of course he is. In fact, as we speak, I’m packing the seven daggers of Megiddo and heading to the airport. I foresee no problems with this plan.

7: Dracula, The Wolf Man, The Frankenstein Monster - which one of these classic villains scares you, and why?

The Wolf Man and Frankenstein’s Monster are just tragic and make me cry, so I’d have to say Dracula

8: Tell me about a scene from a NON HORROR Film that scares the crap out of you:

Tom Cruise, any scene with Tom Cruise.

9: Baby Jane Hudson invites you over to her house for lunch. What do you bring?

I’m fairly confident that BJH and I are destined to be BFFs. So I’d put on my best frock and grab a few litres of whiskey, my make up bag and all the old records and we’d relive our glory days and bitch about Blanche.

10: So, between you and me, do you have any ulterior motives for blogging? Come, on you can tell me, it will be our little secret, I won't tell a soul.

I just like making new friends.

11: What would you have brought to Rosemary Woodhouse's baby shower?

Frankly Rosemary Woodhouse is a woman with everything; great apartment, great outfits, great hair, successful husband, interesting neighbours, the son of Satan, so really she doesn’t need any more presents. But I suppose once I’ve dealt with Michael Bay I could lend her seven daggers of Megiddo.

12: Godzilla vs The Cloverfield Monster, who wins?

Well Godzilla, obviously.

13: If you found out that Rob Zombie was reading your blog, what would you post in hopes that he read it?

Nothing, I’d just keep very quiet, hide behind the couch and hope he goes away.

14: What is your favorite NON HORROR FILM, and why?

The Thin Man, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers and Die Hard.

15: If blogging technology did not exist, what would you be doing?

I’d be hanging out at the bus station shouting my opinions at strangers until the police came to move me on. Or Drinking.

Thank you to the wonderful Pax Romano for making the world a better place again.
John Cusack, I've got my eye on you.


  1. Excellent contributions, Jinx! This entire thing just attests to how hilarious ans wacky you are... all reasons I adore you! I definitely dug the sharks in space (don't forget those Martian Octopi!) and I also noticed my little spot in the sidebar. Amazing. =)

  2. Oh, Joe, you great big hunk of loveliness, thank you. I do feel infinitely cheered now. Can't decide whether to keep the Martian octopi for the sequel or not, naturally I'm expecting it to be a storming success so a sequel is certain. Hmmmm.
    Glad you like your spot. Got to promote my boy.

  3. Nice. I was thinking about Christmas this week too. Please pass my thoughts and prayers to your mom.

    P.S. I don't think Michael Bay is the full blown antichrist, maybe just a lapdog of the real antichrist.

    Best Regards!

  4. Oh, thank you so much, I absolutely will, that will mean so much to her.
    I kind of weirdly like the image of Michael Bay as the antichrist's lapdog, and to be honest, I've always had my suspicions about Tom Cruise too.

  5. So true about Tom Cruise, huh? :D

    Great little quiz thing.

  6. Great fun - I might have to have a go at this myself, though many of our answers would be pretty similar; doubtless what comes of being a fellow Exoricst baby. Agree with you about Saw, Cruise, Jason and Dracula... Maybe not Seven Brides For Seven Brothers, though I did coincidentally watch a bit of it on my hotel room tv over the weekend. The one that sings Bless Your Beautiful Hide walked up to a complete stranger milking a cow and asked her to marry him. It looked good, from that.
    Sorry about the pooch.

  7. Notice I wrote 'Exoricst' just then? I like to mix things up occasionally.

  8. Matthew! Love that you're mixing things up and keeping it fresh.
    I don't what it is about SBfSB, it's horrifically politically incorrect (after Howard Keel scores Jane Powell from the cow milking the rest of brothers just go and kidnap women to marry). Really this is creepy and not Sunday afternoon entertainment. But I love it, maybe it's the facial hair, and the dancing, I like dancing. And, hell, it's got Julie Newmar in it.

  9. You are so right when you say Rosemary Woodhouse has everything! I mean, that apartment alone is one of my favorite homes in all of moviedom. Plus Elisha Cook Jr. is the doorman, always a good sign.

  10. I am so late to this party - but thanks a million for your fantastic answers, and thanks for playing!
