(with Peaches Christ & Mink Stole!)

Midnight movie impresario Peaches Christ (Joshua Grannell), returns to his home state of Maryland to premiere his film directorial debut: All About Evil. This twisted black comedy features Natasha Lyonne, Thomas Dekker, Noah Segan, cult icon Mink Stole, and Cassandra Peterson (known better as Elvira!) Are the slasher films shown at the Victoria Theatre harmless DIY gore or....more?! Mink intros and Peaches performs before the screening! Q & A with Mink and Peaches after.
I've been invited to this by two friends of mine who are on the Creative Alliance committee. Anyone wanna come with me? You'd pay the reduced price and it's bound to be oddles of bizarre fun.
Here's the trailer:
Let's hope I don't start spazzing out like the Waters fangirl I am when I see Mink Stole and/or spazzing out when I see Natasha Lyonne who I've had a massive crush on since I was roughly sixteen. Good times.
Got the best e-mail from my brother this morning:
At the army base where I work, one of the guys I wait for the bus with and I were talking. He's a Sargent Major, the highest enlisted rank in the military, usually meaning 15 years or so of service and rigorous training. The awards on his uniform indicate he's served in a war zone and been in close combat. I mentioned I was from "just south of Baltimore", and the decorated combat veteran responded:
"Baltimore? That's kind of a rough place isn't it?"
Forget this 'city that reads' shit. Baltimore's motto oughta be "The city that even makes guys with chunks of fundie shrapnel in their ass nervous".
Baltimore, you're home to me...
HILARITY. I tend to think of this song whenever I'm traveling and/or just pondering Baltimore. Skip to 5:28 to hear it (or just watch the whole dang movie: Pecker is excellent). I lament that the Greyhound bus station closest to me is actually in Dundalk (although they try to class it up by referring to it as "Baltimore"), not the Baltimore station they show in the movie.
I'm going to have to put a pink flamingo on the side since our native son, the divine John Waters, has donated so much to the hip, exotic quality of our fair city.
Some examples of color bars done for places include these that I'm using for inspiration (that I ripped off from [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com]'s profile, where these ideas spawned in the first place):
And of course there is my Glen Burnie color bar (which is, of course, 80% in irony) that I made since frankly it was simpler than making a Baltimore color bar.
Any ideas are appreciated. ♥
In my quest for making a "Baltimore is Love" banner, I somehow made a "Glen Burnie is Love" banner instead. Just call me... riddled with Stockholm Syndrome? If there is anyone out there who would like to use this as well, credit or fear the wrath that comes from the ghetto redneck capital, the charmless city outside Charm City.
|What American accent do you have? (Best version so far)|
You're not Northern, Southern, or Western, you`re just plain -American-. Your national identity is more important than your local identity, because you don`t really have a local identity. You might be from the region in that map, which is defined by this kind of accent, but you could easily not be. Or maybe you just moved around a lot growing up.
