Happy Friday the 13th, Boys and Girls...

Man, I think I may just have to paint/post about the emo drama that's been getting me down just payback all the folks who have stuck around and keep sending me the most splendid of emails. But, that's for another day. Today? Today's a holiday not enough people celebrate. Even better, it happens again next month too. While the site will be updating with all the stuff I promised for Halloween by that time (yes, I have new articles on the way...hell, if you know my system of article organization you'll see the Dead Alive article has been almost done for months now), please enjoy some vintage Head Injury Theater.

Trivia Time: The first version of this website existed on Angelfire...and started way back in 2004. One of the first articles I wrote was about celebrating Friday the 13 right before Valentine's Day. While I'm embarrassed of the article now, I feel I almost have to share it.

So very shameful. If I'd thought of it earlier, I'd have a rewrite of that article ready for you now. Enjoy your holiday guys. Ladies, remember: We only buy you chocolate to make you fat enough so that no one else will have you. That way, You'll never leave.

I was thinking, I'm not sure whether you liked the film or not, but have you ever done a review of Night of The Creeps?

No worries jared, we just want to make sure things are ok when you're absent.

This is my favorite holiday BTW. I have declared it my lucky day for years. I still get looks.

One of these days, once I discover the science that allows me to get pregnant, I will have your babies.

Well, I was wondering, I was able to check and I found out that you actually have had the Sleepaway Camp article up for some time now, but with no text. What gives?

And yet again, I have sent you many E-mails with no replies from you. It's great that things are back to normal now. ;)

That's awesome....

So, does that mean you're fattening up YOUR lady, so she doesn't leave?

I use a sledgehammer and ankle shackles to make sure my love never leaves.

Everything I learned about love I learned from "Misery."

(P.S. I'm not showing Ducky the comic this week. I'm just not. I had enough nards all over the house after your "Monster Squad" review.)

Well Jared, I know you asked me not to try and contact you like this, but seeing as you are apparently allergic to e-mail, I have no choice if I actually want to get a response (unlike my dozens of unanswered requests and queries)

Anyway, I came up with a great anime that you should review, as a counterpart to the Yokai film reviews. It's called Hakaba Kitarou and it's the first ever faithful adaptation (there were 4 others) of the manga that inspired those films.

And I know of something especially screwed up about the series that you should definitely mention, should you chose to review it. When I saw the Cat Girl character in this version (who is a lot cuter in this version than in the manga, but turns into the worlds scariest catgirl whenever she sees a rat), I assumed that she'd be a character for the entire series, like she was in the earlier ones. But she actually died 4 episodes in (which makes sense, seeing as they couldn't have done that i nthe younger-targeted earlier adaptations). It was due to the character Rat Man using a get-rich-quick scheme he had cooked up to make his crony make a suicide pact with her so that the crony could bring back a bucket of the sands of hell to show on TV and make a shitton of cash. And yet nobody makes a big deal about his role in this terrible crime. If I were Kitaro, I would have beat him within an inch of his life with a baseball bat, get him tried in court for conspiracy to commit murder or tried to drop him off in Hell for good.

Of course, her attitude about her death (she refuses to come back when they try and bring her soul back, even though there are still people who wish she was alive) is kind of indicative of Japan's screwed up attitude about suicide. If her and Kitarou were smart, they would have exchanged &%$*ing Ratman for her. Because not only what I'd mentioned before, but it was Ratman who publically humiliated her, which was a factor in the fact that she decided to stay down in the underworld. Is that not &$*%ed up or what?

Hope you actually read this!

You cannot fathom the depths of my disorganization when it comes to answering emails. Well, actually, you might be one of the people who can. Sorry about that.

So, does this mean you might consider reviewing Hakaba Kitaro Jared?
