A Call to Arms!

In but a bunch of days, your friendly cantankerous neighborhood Final Girl will be celebrating its blogiversary. Its sweet sixteenth blogiversary, to be exact! Can you believe it? She's old enough to drive (omg look out everyone on the road right ha ha ha lol), to drink (Capri Sun), and to get fucked up (on kitten videos). I can't believe it! My precious little baby is not a Final Girl, not yet a Final Woman. Seems like a thing worth celebrating, maybe, so let's celebrate with an EVENT: an event wherein we all kind of talk about our favorite horror movie moments! But let's not talk all willy-nilly. Like any good event, there must be rules. Rules to which one must strictly adhere, lest...well, I think we all know what will happen if rules are flouted. We've all seen Footloose*.

*I've never seen Footloose

Okay, so rules comma the:
  1. You can submit a list your five favorite horror movie moments. I don't care if they are the moments you find the scariest, the funniest, the grossest, the most profound, the most boner-inducing, whatever. That is your business! This is your list! I don't need explanations, although if you give me a why and/or a whyfor, I will not complain. Unless it's about your boner or even your metaphorical boner, because I am not here for that. (omg not without dinner first right ha ha ha lol) (I'm really not though.)
  2. Keep it simple, smarty-pants! You can get obscure...again, that is your business! But it's helpful if it's just, like, "When Annie sings 'Oh, Paul' in Halloween" or "Leatherface twirling with his chainsaw in TCM" or "The videotape in Ringu" or whatever. After all, there's a chance that your favorite moment is also someone else's favorite moment, so this might help with the listing process if I'm going to make a list. I don't rightly know yet. If there's one thing we should have all realized by now, I've been doing this for 15 years but I still don't know what I'm doing.
  3. Your favorite "moment" doesn't have to be a moment! It can be a performance, a specific shot, a whole sequence, whatever. FOR THE LAST TIME, THAT IS YOUR BUSINESS. Just know that "moment" is pretty broad here.
  4. Definitely include the movie title! Between now and whenever I get your list, I could be in some horrible boating accident and I will hit my head and instead of gaining psychic powers like Cynthia Rothrock did when she hit her head on that tree in Sworn to Justice, I will just get amnesia like someone in that movie I can't remember and I will forget that, like, Michael Myers is in Halloween
  5. If there's a link to one of your moments on YouTube or something, include it! 
  6. Send your list to me at stacieponder at gmail dot com by the end of the day (US PST), Friday June 10. Lists sent after that will be tossed in the trash pile, sorry! Include the subject line HORROR MOVIE MOMENTS so I know what's up.
  7. Every US resident who sends a list is eligible to win a Super Amazing Final Girl Blogiversary Prize Pack the Likes of Which No One Has Ever Seen, so include "US RESIDENT" in your email somewhere if you want a chance to win. I'm sorry, international friends, you are the best but for fuck's sake shipping stuff to you is expensive and I am not some 1% hundredaire.
  8. I think that's it? 
Reader, I don't know why I'm even making this a big deal since every email will consist solely of this moment:


But, I guess it's something to do. Happy Blogiversary to me, thanks always for reading, hooray for everything!


A Call to Arms!

In but a bunch of days, your friendly cantankerous neighborhood Final Girl will be celebrating its blogiversary. Its niftiest fiftiest blogiversary, to be exact! Can you believe it? She's old enough to rediscover herself during a trip to the tropics, to wear caftans as much as she pleases, and to go nuts on the white zinfandel on the weekends. I can't believe it! My precious little baby is not a Final Girl, she is a Final Woman.

wherein i am so excited…

...I just can't hide it. I'm about to lose control and you know what? I think I like it! It's time to announce the launch of...dun dun dunnnn...

THE SCARE-ENING!


If you can read that banner, then you know what's what: Heidi Martinuzzi of Pretty/Scary and I are hosting The Scare-ening, a weekly podcast/radio show thing on Blog Talk Radio starting THIS WEDNESDAY at 8pm PST. Every week we'll have, like, guests and stuff and listeners can totally call in. This week we're talking Women in Horror Month, bloggers, Rondos...really, as much as we can cram into an hour.

Click here for some details...or this, the show's page on Blog Talk Radio. We created a Facebook fan page, so...you know...add it or something. It'll soon be available for download on iTunes, as well.

I'm really looking forward to this! Hooray for everything! Oh, and we'll be recording LIVE, so...whatever that means.

won’t you help a sista out?

You will?! Oh, fabulous. It's so easy! All you have to do is:
  1. Head over to AMC and read my latest, all about stuff you should...you know, watch. If you left a comment over there, or clicked "recommend", that would make my editor happy. Trust me, it's horrible when she's NOT happy. I'm not going to say she hits me, but she totally does.
  2. Wish a happy birthday to Chainsaw Mafia honcho (honchette?), Fangoria Spooksmodel, Ludlow staaaah, and all around super lady Shannon Lark.
Shannon Lark: bloody and "with it", yet totally gluten-free

What oh what will you get in return, besides that thrilling feeling one only gets when doing a good cyber-deed? Here's what you'll get: a whopping almost ten minutes of awesomely horrible horribly awesome horriblawesomeness from that craptacular flick I recently reviewed, Don't Go in the Woods...Alone! Finally, after all these few days, you can witness for yourself some of the worst acting in the history of ever- and all for just a few clicks. Hooray for everything!
