4.5 out of 5

Hello, beloved viewers, and welcome to another article from the least famous man you have ever met. Giving you my opinion about things you don’t care about, whether you like it or not. Today we are talking about the beautiful world of “Demolition Man”, played by that one actor, Sylvester Stallone. He’s a man who can scream throughout most of his acting career, and become one of the most well renown actors.

The movie starts out at the end of an unassumingly endless confrontation between the Demolition Man and Simon Phoenix (Wesley Snipes). This results in the deaths of several innocent lives. By the way, if your nickname is the Demolition Man you need to assume at least two things: 1. if you are in the police force and your constant actions give you that nickname….maybe you should be at a desk filing paperwork so you don’t cause the death of anybody, 2. the most obvious reason, YOU SHOULD NOT BE IN THE FIELD DUE TO YOUR CONSTANT RECKLESSNESS.

Having said that, do not get me wrong. I understand the pull to the audience. It was during a time when explosions and rippling muscles were what made classic cinematic masterpieces. Even today, it still does make for some potential classics, but I digress.

Due to the said death of several innocents, John Spartan receives a frozen sentence of many years. Though, he does end up getting his sentence cut short. This happens, when Phoenix blows up everything and kills everyone. Blows up and kills everyone…or like maybe, three people. This is a peaceful future where the biggest string of crime is graffiti.

Anyway, stuff happens where they show weird future stuff, like the three shells and Taco Bell being the only fast food chain left, resulting in it becoming high class cuisine. After conflicts and a scene of sex but, no sex, Spartan freezes and crushes Phoenix (aka Mr Murder Death Kill). This shows off to the other cops what he can do and he also exchanges bodily fluids with the token female cop. Shows the cops what to do and exchanges bodily fluids with token female cop (Sandra Bullock as Lenina Huxley).

There are some interesting things that I noticed, which they never really touched upon. For instance, is wife and his daughter, or rather just his daughter. You see, they do mention that his wife was killed or murdered or just in general, is not around anymore. But, they hardly touch upon his daughter or even let him know that she is alive. Maybe there is something that I missed, but I don’t know. I’ve only watched the movie once, and so maybe I’m going to catch something next time that I didn’t during my initial viewing, but, until then, I’m only going to assume that them not mentioning what happened to his daughter is either a cop out, or just general laziness.

NOW, here is why I love this movie. I am a man. I love explosions, unnecessary murder and guns. I can’t help it. It’s in my blood. It’s what i breath. It’s how I live. Boom, Boom, pow, and all of that other junk.

This movie really was fun. I’m 23. I feel kind of embarrassed when I say that I haven’t seen this movie before. According to missemmamm, the amount of incredible movies that I’ve never seen is shocking. I promise that I will see them, one at a time. But, I do feel like it gives me a unique perspective. The perspective of someone in my generation, who hasn’t seen a movie quite like the ones from ten, twenty, or thirty years ago. So, I want to type about these little treasures from a fresher look, from a later generation.

All in all, from the ramblings of a mad, intoxicated, 23 year old, I think I am going to give this movie, a 4.5 out of 5. The only reason, being that I do not know what the three sea shells are for….but i am still not sure if that is a good or a bad thing.

Mon View Pool in PA

It’s summertime again, so how about a super overly specific playlist? When I was a preteen, my sister and I spent a lot of time hanging at the best pool around (Mon View, of course). There was always loud music blasting. Luckily for me, the super horny teenage help must have been in control of the dial because these are the songs I swam to. Basically if it was a R&B song about fucking we were going to learn it and inappropriately sing it in between strokes.

Here are my fun nostalgic pool songs of the 90s.

The Nintey Days of Genevieve

The Ninety Days of Genevieve
by Lucinda Carrington
published by Harlequin (Harlequin MIRA)
release date: (of the Kindle version): 4/01/2013, of the original: 1996
provided by: NetGalley

The Ninety Days of Genevieve is not for everyone. Firstly, it’s definitely erotica, not just a sexy romance. When I was younger it would have been too much for me. At this stage in my life though, I’m all for well written erotica. It also seems slightly dated in places. This is because it was originally released in 1996. That’s perfectly fine. I just like to be aware of things like that. Lastly, it starts out with a bit of a sexual harassment style narrative.

If you can make it through the first chapter the original set up works well with the story and most likely won’t be too bothersome. The story focuses on business woman, Genevieve. When she meets the sexy Mr. Sinclair they enter into an unusual agreement. She will get his account if she agrees to fulfill his sexual proclivities for 90 days. At first Genevieve is hesitant in some of the more unusual sexual situations. She does acquiesce to his demands though due to a combo of wanting to move up in the world and her attraction to him. As their time together progresses though she feels herself opening up sexually.

There are some standard romance tropes here, such as another woman who may or may not be competing for Sinclair’s attentions (and account) and the ambivalence that both main characters feel due to their situation and growing feels for each other.

What I particularly enjoyed were the sexual situations that pushed both Genevieve and myself out of our comfort zones. Some of the scenarios that the reader gets to vicariously experience are: sex in public, antique sexual contraptions, bisexuality, BDSM, performing (in multiple ways) in front of others and more. Both characters are interesting and depicted as attractive. I also feel that we get to see the growth of Genevieve within this story.

I highly recommend this book. It’s a must read if you enjoy boundary pushing erotica. At 274 pages, this book is an ideal length. It gets the story told and doesn’t leave you hanging. Once you are into into, it’s amazingly easy to tear through in a short period of time.

Scary Movie (2000)
scary movie

The first Scary Movie spoofed many of the films listed on this list, as well as others that are not currently available on Netflix. Though it was officially released in 2000, it definitely belongs here. Anna Faris and Shannon Elizabeth costar in this Wayans brothers comedy that is mainly based on the original Scream flick. Fun fact: Scream’s working title was Scary Movie.

Teaching Mrs. Tingle (1999)
teaching mrs tingle

The first Kevin Williamson penned movie on this list is the black comedy Teaching Mrs. Tingle. Katie Holmes, Marisa Couglan (Super Troopers), Barry Watson (Sorority Boys) and Helen Mirren co-star. The simple plot is about teens who want revenge on their bitchy teacher, the always sexy Helen mirren.

The Faculty (1998)
the faculty

This high school alien invasion flick from Robert Rodriguez is a must see. It’s The Body Snatchers meets The Breakfast Club. A truly fab 90s cast, including Josh Hartnett, Elijah Wood and Shawn Hatosy, is able to give life to the teen archetypes presented here. The teachers in the film are played by so many amazing actors that I’m not even going to list them, just watch it.

Disturbing Behavior (1998)
disturbing behavior

Disturbing Behavior is a creepy look at high school jock mentality. Something (and or someone) is changing these small town teens into shiny, 50’s style goodie two shoes, except when they get horny and then homicidal. Katie Holmes shines as sexy “trash” in this Kevin Williamson penned guilty pleasure. James Marsden (X-Men) costars as the new kid.

Bride of Chucky (1998)
bride of chucky

Definitely my favorite Chucky flick, this one is over the top fun. Jennifer Tilly is a boobaliscious, goth trailer chick who she gets her wish and brings back her ex, now in Chucky’s body, of course. Things get completely zany when he also transfers her soul to doll form. A young Katherine Heigl and John Ritter (as her angry dad) costar. Also keep an eye out for Alexis Arquette who is amazing in this.

Scream (1996)
scream poster

You’re most likely familiar with Wes Craven’s Scream. A hot cast of well known actors mixed with up and comers appear in this slasher movie that is so in the know that Jamie Kennedy’s character even lists what must happen in a horror flick in one of the definitive scenes. The cast is rounded out with Neve Canpbell (as the hero), Skeet Ulrich (as his hottest), Matthew Lillard, Rose McGowan (as a blonde), Henry Winkler, David Arquette and Courtney Cox. Some of the sequels are also available on Netflix.

The woman who was in charge of handling the press told us where we could sit. She also said, feel free to crouch on the floor for close photos if you want. So near the end of the panel I literally crawled around in the below pink dress and took these pics because I had to, and it was encouraged! Man, how beautiful is Kristy Swanson, BTW?

(Other photos included in this post were taken from our normal seated position and aren’t as clear but I’m including them anyway so you can get a fuller experience.)


The panel started off with Clare letting everyone know that she’s filling in for Juliet Landau (who was originally scheduled to attend) and joked that she’d try to field any Drusilla questions. James promoted his band, Ghost of the Robot.



on the best acting advice they received
The second video is just a shorter, clearer version of the first about acting advice. My sister shot it because of her James Marsters obsession so I’m including it for all of us fangirls out there.


most memorable moments


James Marsters delves into how Joss Whedon really used a mixture of genres on Buffy, sometimes within the same episode or scene. He also discusses stage Vs screen acting.


on their characters’ deaths


Amber Benson comments on what it was like to have her death scene be used as her opening title credit for the rest of the show.


Amber Benson on Tara and Willow’s lesbian relationship
She talks about how it’s not about sexuality or even physicality but about love.


Benson discusses Tara’s death
James Marsters talks about what it was like when fans found Spike sexy since that wasn’t Joss’ original intention.


answering if they ever took anything from the set
I love that Clare Kramer stole Glory’s panties!


James Marsters on working on Buffy Vs. Angel
It’s awesome when he talks about working with Boreanaz on Angel.

Well the Buffy panel at the 2012 Wizard World Philadelphia Comic Con was awesome, as would be expected. As I mentioned in my Thor panel post, BTVS fans are the best. They are perceptive, witty and inquisitive.

Mark Metcalf, Amber Benson, James Marsters, Clare Kramer, Kristy Swanson

I’ve been to a small, intimate Angel/Buffy convention years back. Plus my sister and I had also met a couple of the actors at another convention years ago but this was a first for her to see an actual Buffy panel. You don’t even know how excited she was.

Mark Metcalf, Amber Benson, James Marsters, Clare Kramer

I did most of the filming on this one and for some reason the fact that her camera is 2MP higher than mine makes a huge difference. That’s why some videos are clearer and closer than others. I’m also usually steadier but it was too much fun to stay completely still during this thing.

I would definitely say that a fun time was had by all. If Wizard World does another Buffy panel in the future I highly encourage you to attend it. What a blast!
