Aaaah Yes, That Is Better!

To those of you newcomers who have crossed over to the DISContent side of town from the white picket fences and manicured lawns of the Kung Fu Monkey...

Glad to have ya join us. The more the merrier.
(I didn't think there was going to be this many of you or else I would have bought more beer. Honest. I'll know better next time)

If this is your first time here, let me say this - we talk a lot about the movies you see on the video store shelves every weekend when you walk into Blockbuster.

Monster movies.
Shoot'emups.
Erotic thrillers.
Techno thrillers made with footage from every airplane/sub/battleship pic you've ever seen.
Urban movies about rappers with a gun and a key of coke.

The movies that, deep down you really want to see because the cover art looks cool and it stars that the guy from (insert whatever TV show, cable movie or rap concert that applies), or that other guy who should probably be in traction by now, but somehow still gets hired to go out and kick badguy ass.

These are the movies you don't see at the theater any more because the Drive-ins and the Grindhouses are all gone. You only see these on DVD; which is kinda' cool because you can rent it, slip it under your coat, and watch it later after the kids have gone to bed.

So find yourself a seat, get some popcorn and don't be afraid to speak up. Think of us as your local drive-in or grindhouse where you can shout back at the screen.

Isn't that half the fun?

So Bill - this weekend. I'm at the video store. All that War of the Worlds and big budget crap I didn't see in the theater is out. I want something good and recent. Any genre. Gore is great. Boobies are better.

What am I renting? Top five, last year or so?

Go. :)

How about some writing advice?

How would you write the scene that details one car following another car? Would you write several location shows to establish the distance traveled, or a general slug and description?
