A Christmas Playlist: Part 2

Two years ago, I posted up a short playlist of a half dozen rock n’ roll Christmas songs. Since rock n’ rollers and metalheads have been banging out holiday jams aplenty in the past decade or so, here are 10 more. Cheap Trick- Christmas Christmas. Cheap Trick are no stranger to Christmas tunes, with holiday-themed singles… Read More ›

Teenage Frankenstein: Alice in the 80s (Alice Cooper Vol. 2)

Admittedly, I have a soft spot for Alice’s ’86 to ’91 era. I discovered the Coop by way of the ubiquitous “Poison” video during the heyday of MTV. Alice became sort of a family obsession, shared between myself, my brother, my sister and my mother. I would acquire his entire studio output, but those few… Read More ›

Virgin Fangs: My First Viewing of Lugosi’s ‘Dracula’

Watching the original Dracula for the first time in 2017 feels a bit absurd. But that’s the way it is. I’d never seen the movie before. Although when you put together every famous scene and still involving Bela Lugosi’s Dracula, I may as well have seen the whole film in pieces. One of the biggest… Read More ›

Re-visiting Rob Zombie’s Halloween II

Seven years ago, on Halloween night…or, well actually, it was like in August I think, we watched Halloween II, the sequel to Rob Zombie’s divisive Halloween remake. Both Joanna and I hated it. So, of course, we had to watch it again and see if our initial hatred was warranted or if, with the passage… Read More ›

Meet The Spiders: Alice Cooper’s Garage Punk Band

This is not breaking news or anything, but Alice Cooper was once in a 60s garage punk band. In fact, most of original Alice Cooper band were. They were called The Spiders and they kicked ass. Now, aside from their name, there was nothing too spooky about the band, but Alice is the king of… Read More ›

BP Podcast, Episode 16: “Our Horror & Cult Movie Blind Spots”

On this week’s podcast, Joanna and Johnny discuss horror (and cult) movie blind spots! You know, those movies we really should have seen by now, but haven’t for whatever reason. From Carpenter to Craven, it’s a mixed bag.

Alice Cooper Playlist, Vol. 1

I know most of you are gearing up for Halloween (and I’m excited too!), but as far as I’m concerned, it’s summer. The weather’s hot and the beach is still on my mind every day. I know The Coop is usually reserved for that special day at the end of October, but his guitar-driven romps… Read More ›
