Streeboween: 24 Hours of Horror Films for Halloween: A Live Blogging Marathon

Streeboween: 24 Hours of Horror Films for Halloween: A Live Blogging Marathon

Oct 31, 2014

Live blog. Happy Halloween, my manic mutants! It’s time to take off our masks and let our real selves shine through! For most of the mundane world, that statement would have been reversed but you and I know all too well that the everyday face that we put on at work is just a persona and a false mask to help us fit in without upsetting the surface dwellers or exposing the masquerade. Today is our day. Join me in peeling back your skin and letting your fur grow out as we head out into the Halloween night to howl at the moon and any passersby that come along. As part of the ongoing Streeboween tradition, I always challenge myself to watch a twenty-four hour marathon of Halloween horror films to celebrate the occasion. As Halloween is being celebrated on Friday this year, we’ll have to start our countdown during the day and carry on through the night! The time has come so let’s not tarry further! 4pm – Teen Titans: Season Two Episode Five: Fear Itself. Since the Sun is still in the sky let’s start with something simple and friendly to set the mood. I always loved it when my favorite TV show characters celebrated the holiday with us. Scouring my DVD collection, I came across this Halloween themed episode of Teen Titans so let’s give it a go! 4:30pm – It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown! Let’s continue the daylight celebration with a perennial favorite – Charlie Brown and the Great Pumpkin! 5pm – Tales from the Darkside: Trick or Treat This first episode was directed by none other than the great George A. Romero so what better way to move the mood into the dark than with the Godfather of Modern Horror? This episode always spooked me out when I was a kid. 5:30pm – The Twilight Zone: Nightmare at 20,000 feet Let’s throw in some classic horror with that classically trained actor, of course I’m talking about The Twilight Zone with William Shatner. Nothing gets you in that old Twilight Zone mind frame better than the sight of Captain Kirk yelling about a gremlin on the wing of his...

Death of a Mom & Pops Video Rental Store: A Streeborama Blog.

Death of a Mom & Pops Video Rental Store: A Streeborama Blog.

Jun 23, 2014

Robbins, NC — Thirty years of history came to a sudden and quiet end this week as Choice Video’s (sic) announced that they were closing their doors after three decades of providing video rental service to the local community. They came up during the 80’s VHS rental boom and managed to stay active through the lean Blockbuster years on into the era of Netflix, Redbox and instant streaming. Your humble narrator and reporter managed to stop by the store during their closing sale to say goodbye to the dust covered celluloid memories. If you were a child of the Eighties like myself then perhaps you remember a childhood filled with memories walking the long rows of display shelves in your local Mom & Pops video store. I remember back to the days when we had a video store on every corner with a rainbow of creative names like Entertainment Tonight, J.B. Video, Moviemax and Choice Video. Most were owned by one family or another and catered to our every fear and desire. An entire industry exploded overnight as VHS technology gave fans the chance to enjoy their favorite films from the comfort of their own home at a time of their choosing. This lead to Saturday nights filled with endless viewings of Big Trouble In Little China, Aliens and Weird Science. As kids despite having the entire world in our hands we always tended to focus on our favorite things and watched them over and over until we ran them into the ground. If you were lucky, your local Mom & Pops owner would let you rent anything you wanted – short of the backroom movies hidden behind “The Curtain.” You know about “The Curtain” don’t you? That’s where you had to be an adult to enter and visit the lovely ladies of the night such as Traci Lords, Ginger Lynn and Vanessa Del Rio. Of course, I was never allowed to do such things but they were always there calling out to me past the dirty raincoat wearing men that visited them on a regular basis. That particular siren’s call was drowned out by the cacophony created by endless rows of Science Fiction...
