Let's NOT Do The Time Warp AGAIN

I think I'm gonna be sick:

In Celebration of the 30th Anniversary of the birth of "Rocky" (when Richard was writing the original play)...Lou Adler and Twentieth Century Fox will shortly announce a huge broadcast television event for February 2003.... A remake of the Rocky Horror Picture show with an all-new celebrity cast. The director of this project will be Stephen Elliot who directed "Priscilla, Queen of the Desert" and the cult classic "Welcome to Woop-Woop"". Casting will be going underway soon.

Thank you Hollywood. Thank you for fucking up something ELSE beautiful. What's next, you gonna remake Citizen Kane? How about Gone With The Wind? After all, you can just "recast" them with an "all-celebrity" cast too, and it won't fuck them up anymore than this will.

As a die-hard RHPS fan, who can quote you the entire film, including the extended audience lines, without needing to SEE the damn thing, who has played every part live at least a few times and played 'Frank' twice a week for a year at one point, and one of the only people I know who actually OWNS 'Shock Treatment'...I am BEYOND DISGUSTED.

Just A Day For Rants, Ain't It?

Yes, it's that time again...time for me to spout off about how I feel about things. At least I warn you, don't I? I'm not such a bad guy.

Incidentally, this came up because I learned today that Di's mother-in-law signed Bug up for Kung-Fu lessons. Not Di, not Bug's father, but her mother-in-law. As if this is something that she has any business doing, and top it off with the fact that she didn't even ask Di for her opinion. That ALSO really pisses me off...I'd have gone off on her about it. Someone else signs my son up for something, without my prior knowledge? They best be wearing a flak jacket when I find out.

Yep, I Finally Did It

OK, kids...a couple of you might be surprised, and a couple might actually be interested, so I'll note it in public. I'm finally selling what I swore I would never sell...my autographed 'Crow' comics and my 'Crow' prints. I hate to see them go, but I haven't touched them in a while, and I could use the cash, so who knows, maybe someone will appreciate them.
