Halloween Movie Marathon

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , on October 31, 2007 by Dark Knightingale

Edited 2 times. -Once, because I forgot the pictures… (D'oh!)

I don't really celebrate Halloween, but nothing really against it. -It just isn't my thing. Sure, I like the costumes and things that people come up with, but I just don't do it.

Nope, I'm more likely to vege out in front of the tv with some popcorn, a Mountain Dew and a stack of good movies. Besides, the lady's at work tonight. I narrowed down my choices to 10 movie titles.

ha ha ha -There's NO way I could possibly sit and watch all ten of them tonight. -Probably more like three, maybe four.

My Halloween movie lineup of three or four will be chosen from these 10 titles this year, and some of why they were chosen is as follows:

1) An American Werewolf In London (Werewolf)

2) Ravenous (Cannibals)

3) Batman Begins (Scarecrow, Bats and the illusion of Saten)

4) Tales From The Crypt: Demon Knight (Demons)

5) Tales From The Crypt: Bordello Of Blood (Vampires)

6) Lord Of Illusions (Magicians, Evil raised from the dead)

7) Dawn Of The Dead (2004) (walking dead)

8) Bram Stoker's Dracula (Lord Of Vampires)

9) Wishmaster (evil Djinn)

10) Sleepy Hollow (headless horseman -Johnny Depp version)

 

The four I'm going to settle with are:

 

Batman BeginsDemon KnightLord Of IllusionsDracula

1) Batman Begins

2) Tales From The Crypt: Demon Knight

3) Lord Of Illusions (Director's Cut)

4) Bram Stoker's Dracula

That should keep me busy for a little while, eh?

Happy Halloween to you all, and be safe!!!

Movie Of The Day

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , on October 27, 2007 by Dark Knightingale

Ha ha ha -This sounds funny every time I say it: "We went to go see Saw!" (seesaw?) Oh well.

Anyways, I did the obligatory movie marathon of the first three, before going to see this part 4.

 

SawSaw IISaw IIISaw IV

This part four… -Bizarre. I think I'm going to have to see it again to try to make some better sense of it.

Without giving away the whole story, I will say that it began with an autopsy of "John", where they find a tape in him. But what confuses me is that they ended this movie just past where three left off. (?!?!?!?!?!?) Did the events of part four take place at about the same time as the events of part three? -If so, then why did they end the movie with a detective getting locked into the room with John's body, and the other charactors from part three, when they had already done an autopsy?

Oh, I'm sooo confused and don't want to wait another x number of years to find out what's going on.

They play on the idea that yes, John was "Jigsaw", and Jigsaw is dead, but I'm under the impression that maybe he really wasn't Jigsaw, but he wants everyone to think he was. Really, come on now! -How else could these games continue if Jigsaw truely died? Another apprentice? -Someone has to plan and execute these traps…-And continue making cassette tapes…

-Spreaking of traps… -The traps were gruesome, for the most part, but shakey cameras and quick flashes takes away a lot of the impact these devices were meant to have on us. -They should have spent a couple more seconds showing them in action to better sicken us.

But, back to the story… Overall, I liked this part four, but it didn't seem as well planned as the first three movies…

-Back and forth into John's past, rather than sticking to the traps at hand. (-If you want to do a back story on John, or Jigsaw, then do one without all of the flashbacks, eh?) -Plus, leaving an audience guessing, and in anticipation of the next movie is one thing, but confusing them is a whole different thing. I guess we'll have to wait to find out more 'till the rumoured parts five and six are done to get a better idea as to what's really going on here.

When A Website Denies You….

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on October 21, 2007 by Dark Knightingale

Thank SOMEBODY, that we are allowed to freely speak our minds here at VOX!!!!

Some sites won't allow you to post links to your "other pages", because they consider it to be an ad.

-Meanwhile they post their own ads….

One way to defeat such a website is to merely write it out:

achteateapeecolonforwardslashforwardslashdarkknightingaledotVOXdotcom

-Or, as I like to say: http://darkknightingale.vox.com

-Why is this such a big deal to them? -Especially when we PAY them for the right to post there?

Hello Classmates.com….

For the few who regularily check on my page here: I have Edited the next post for "Unfinished Business" in an effort to try to clarify where some of this song came from. -Please read it ALL, and give me some discussion on the changes I made!

-Might be good for us….

Edited… -Watch For The Changes! Unfinished Business; Vocal Mix X’s 3 so far…

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , on October 18, 2007 by Dark Knightingale

Unifinished Business.

-Remixed, for the third (official) time, and this post re-edited, to bring out the vocals a little bit better… And to clarify where this song kinda came from.

My wife, Michelley-Shell, and SILO ALL recommended that I bring out the vocals on "Unfinished Business", so for the third time, here it is… -Re-mixed, with the vocals brought out some more. Plus, this recording is a tiny bit longer, clocking in at 6 minutes, 20 seconds.

-And, I added a little reference point at the end of the lyics which might surprise you some, and HOpefully help you to think a little more about what could have been… -And, might be again.

-Who knows?

Also, I think that this sounds QUite a bit better, now with the vocals MAjorly increased, and I hope you can agree.

Please let me know what you think of this, when you get a chance!

-The lyrics are posted below for your convienence… -And so is the final addition I added to the end of the lyrics.

-Enjoy this third re-mix!

 

Unfinished Business
Jim Nelson

Like a thief, -You're finished.

Like a thief in the night, who was cold with desire, you came and went like a whisper… I tried to fight, but I couldn't see, and I was so unsure….

But I tried to tell you…. -It should never ever be that way… And, I tried to warn you… -There's danger in that game.

Because the thunder will roll, the lightning will flash… And speak of a story about you….

When you wither away, I'll pray you'd stayed, but you'll be gone tomorrow….

-Oh.-Uh oh.

-But that's unfinished business…

A lady is blessed with a heart of desire, she doesn't know of the power of her lies… -She grabbed me, took control of me, and made me believe in those lies…

But, I tried to tell her… -It should never ever be that way… -And, I tried to warn her… -There's danger in her game.

Because the thunder will roll… -The lightning attacks… -Screaming a story about you…

-When you wither away, I'll pray you'd stayed… -You'll be gone tomorrow… -Oh.

Don't run away, don't leave me now… -We've got unfinished business…

Don't run away, I need you to stay… -I've got unfinished business with you. -Oh….

-Uh oh.

-I've got unfinished business with you…

-Oh,  uh oh.

-Unfinished business…!

Like a thief in the night, who was cold with desire… -I came and went like a whisper…. You tried to fight, but you couldn't see…. -Now who's so unsure…?

But I tried to tell you…. -It should never ever be that way…. And I tried to warn you…. -There's danger in that game.

Because the thunder will roll, the lightning will flash… -And speak of a story about you…

-When you wither away, I'll pray you'd stay… -You'll be gone tomorrow… -Oh.

Don't run away, don't leave me now… -We've got unfinished business…

Don't run away, I need you to stay… -I've got unfinished business with you.

-I've got unfinished business with you… -Oh, uh oh. -Unfinished business!

-I've got unfinished business with you… -Oh, uh oh… -Finished Business!!!

 

Think not that I am come to send peace on this earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.

Matthew 10:34

-The King James Version of the Christian Bible.

-Personally, I like to think that Jesus had said "I came not to send peace, but his word", but far be it from me to ever alter scripture, or his fate.

I believe that Jesus deserves a pardon next time.

-Some things I've said….
