The Compulsion

The Compulsion

I did it again, I bought a collection of horror movies. Mostly Italian in origin. My youngest sister was with me and I gave her implicit instructions not to let me do that. But she turned her back for a second and didn't notice I had it until I set it down on the counter to check out. It was only like $5.95. I do so enjoy making those check out girls give me funny looks, especeially when I sat down that horror collection, fabulously titled I might add "BLOOD BATH," as well as "Degrassi: The Next Generation Season 3," and then saying, very loudly, DON'T JUDGE ME! My sis just shook her head and said there's no hope for me. I have this terrible compulsion to buy these old horror movies simply because the entire collection has a hilarious name!
Anyway, on to the movies.....

The first was called "DEVIL'S NIGHTMARE." It's an Italian Gothic Horror film Directed by Jean Brisme
Writing credits Jean Brisme & Pierre-Claude Garnier. Well, I was almost afraid that it wasn't the production company that put it out put a rather puzzling opening at the beginning which as I started watching was hoping wasn't the actual film. To my utter joy, it wasn't the scary opening ended after much fast forwarding. It's about a group of tourists travelling through eastern Europe who seek refuge in an old castle. The castle of course is cursed. The first born daughter is always a succubus. Oh, but shocker, the owner killed his first born daughter, but a succubus comes any way. She kills six of the people in acts of mortal sin. Of course she was doing the killing for the devil. I was suprised, it really wasn't too bad.

The second film was called "PIECES." This was an early 80's slasher film Directed by Juan Piquer Simn & Writing credits Joe D'Amato & Dick Randall. It was hilarious. I don't think I ever laughed at a slasher film so much before. Basically at the beginning in the 40's some kid gets caught by his mother when he's putting together a puzzle of a naked lady. His mom takes it away so of course he axes her. 40 years later some psycho is chopping up coeds making a life sized puzzle out of women parts. It has some hilarious lines in it: Dean: Professor Brown... you see... is a homosexual. Not to mention the part where the character Mary Riggs stands outside the locker room and yells BASTARD! over and over again.

I think I'll post the other two over the weekend seeing as I didn't watch the last one yet, the other two are called,

"KILL BABY KILL" Directed by Mario Bava & "KISS ME KILL ME" Directed by Corrado Farina

Strange how almost every one of these things has one film directed by Mario Bava.

I haven't written in a while. I was trying to decide what to write about.

Should I write about how irritating people in Indiana have found daylight savings time? I've heard a lot of complaints. One attorney I heard talking said he couldn't sleep for a week after he changed his clocks. Why is changing our clocks such a dilemma. The sun doesn't know we've changed our clocks. Therefore, now the sun rises after seven instead of six. The sun sets sometime after eight. It's after nine before it is completly dark. This is bizarre and kind of difficult to go to sleep when it's dark outside. However this is just an annoying thing we have to get used to now that the powers that be decided to change our clocks to Eastern Standard Time. I have heard people say they want to go march on Governer Daniels' lawn with sign that read "IF YOU CAN SEE ME, IT'S TOO LIGHT OUTSIDE NOW!" That's not my slogan, it's just what they said. Of course they'd have to figure out where the Governers house is because his wife refused to live in the Governer's mansion.

All the streets around the tower damaged downtown are all open now, to both pedestrians and cars. Some of the tenants will be allowed back in the building this morning on floors 14 and below. The floors above this were the worst damaged. In some places there is nothing but a railing. There are more substantial repairs required up there.

I was trying to decide if I would discuss the whole immigration thing. I think I've decided if I do I will need to read more on it. I will say this though, if they decide not to go to work on May 1st, it won't effect me in the least. Unless I go to a fast food restaurant. Which I probably won't.

I guess that's it.

Ironically I watched the movie Sunday afternoon. Then Sunday night a mighty wind blew right up the side of a skyscraper in downtown Indianapolis. As the wind travelled up the side of the building it gained speed up to aproximately 120 miles an hour. It reached nearly the top and burst through the windows of several floors, gushed through and came out the other side. There was an attorney working late that night and he felt the swaying and heard the crashing. He ran down the 32 flights of stairs from his office to the lobby.

In the aftermath, the debris scattered across several blocks in all directions of downtown Indianapolis. This resulted in street closings, which then caused many people being late for work.

Some debris smashed in the the Indianapolis Star building which is right next door. The ceiling was broken out in some of the upper executive offices in that building.

Now it's Wednesday. There are still streets closed around that building. It's precautionary in case something falls off the building. The cleanup has begun however.

It's just wild, the force of the wind. I just can't help looking up and thinking, the wind did that.
