Finally, a new use for VHS cases!

A few weeks ago, I was wondering what to do with leftover VHS cases. I now have an answer, courtesy of “101 Weapons for Women: A Unique Concept in Women’s Self-Defense” (1991) by Rodney R. Rice, which, I should mention, just jumped to #1 on my summer reading list.

YEAH. VHS tapes, recycling, and empowered ladies on a roaring rampage of revenge. I AM ALL ABOUT THAT.

Thanks and credit go to Mary and Holly at Awful Library Books, who are more hilarious than any right-thinking individual has any business being.

Note: Be thankful this isn’t a blog about gardening:

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003)

Leatherface is mega creepy.

Okay, Michael Bay,
we get the point already:
remake everything.

What is TCM really inspired by? Apparently, Leatherface is based on real-life creepazoid Ed Gein, and the events on any number of urban legends involving teenagers, vans, drugs and sex.

Fun (1994)

fun 1994

handheld cameras?
black-and-white? starts at the end?!
oh hi, the 90’s!

No trailer here, but it’s available on YouTube, so you can skip through and be annoyed all the same.

So, what’s Alicia Witt (aka my 1995 crush) been up to? Aside from starring in noted garbageheap “88 Minutes” with Al Pacino, she’s apparently been promoting her singing career.

Hm. That’s only somewhat hilarious. Let’s just play a track from another famous-in-the-90s redhead. This one’s always a crowdpleaser.

Mortal Kombat (1995)

We’re late to the gate with this, but in case you haven’t seen it, here’s the video that was (supposedly) produced as a means of shopping around a rebooted “Mortal Kombat” film. The short is directed by Kevin Tancharoen, who is mostly known for his dance movies, which seem to definitely be in play here: He’s definitely choreography chops. Also, geeks take note: he’s Maurissa Tancharoen’s brother.

Back to the film at hand: when it comes to the soundtrack, there are definitely some things worth noting. First off, we have Orbital’s “Halcyon and On and On”. Considering its prominence on the soundtrack of “Hackers” and “Mortal Kombat”, we feel that back to 1995, this track was shorthand for “roll credits”.

It was this next excerpt from the soundtrack that really dropped my jaw. Watch this video of the penultimate fight scene of the movie, and jump to about a minute in:

The artist behind the track? It’s noted adult film actress and 24H2Midnight favourite Traci Lords! Check out her music video here:
