Lennon Killer Up For Parole Again

Imagine (Deluxe Edition)
Here we go again. This August 9th, Mark David Scumbag Chapman goes before the parole board. Yeah right. Like anybody is going to sign off on letting this creep out. You rob a bank, or ice a guy who took your parking spot, maybe you can walk after a few years. You shoot one of the most famous and beloved guys on the planet in the back because you're pissed off over being a big fat loser, you get to die in jail. If this jerk off wants out he can grow some balls and escape like the rest of us.
I don't know what's sicker, the fact this clown gets conjugal visits, or the fact he was able to find a broad willing to show up for them. He should be strapped to a chair like Alex in A Clockwork Orange and be forced to listen to Yoko's discography until his head explodes. I'd let Manson out before this guy.

The Exorcist

The 70s wasn't the best decade for horror films, but it did spew out at least one that rates in the top ten of all time greats. The Exorcist was a sensation when it came out, and managed to live up to the hype. You can actually believe people fainted, tossed their cookies, and dropped over dead when they went to see it. Like Nosferatu, it has displayed the power to retain it's ability to produce shudders for generations not even born when it was released.
Awhile back they made like George Lucas and spruced it up with additional footage and effects. Sometimes that kind of shit sticks out like a sore thumb, but not here. It all fits in where it should and makes the movie even better. It's hard to imagine  that "spider walk" bit wasn't in it from the start.
The book ain't bad either, but, like The Godfather, the film has kind of turned it into a footnote.

The Exorcist (The Version You've Never Seen)

Favorite Movie Studios

You Must Remember This: The Warner Bros. StoryPhotobucket

Back in the day studios used to specialize. Universal made the best monster movies, MGM did all of those crappy musicals, and Warner Brothers was the king of the gangster picture. Republic churned out the best serials, Columbia gave us Three Stooges shorts, and I don't know what the hell 20th Century Fox was doing before Star Wars. You also had  the cheap ass studios like Monogram and PRC that are responsible for all of those public domain videos companies like Goodtimes used to flood the market with back in the 80s.
Warner Brothers also put out the best cartoons. Sure Disney is all over the place with their feature length flicks and theme parks, but who watches Disney shorts anymore? Mickey Mouse had nothing on Bugs Bunny.
These days you don't know who makes what, though it seems Warners is big on superheroes. Of course, if you want to go international with it, Toho is still the place to find movies about giant radioactive lizards.

pissed fluffy Television has always sucked, but there used to be at least a few things to stare at while you struggled to polish off the last of that case of beer. Back before video, TV was the only place you could see old gangster and horror movies. Now, instead of filling the hours after the late news with Cagney and Karloff, they run hour long commercials. Cable TV ditched the commercials; network TV ditched the shows.

Who the hell watches this crap? No matter how loaded I might be at 1:00 AM, I'm not going to sit there and watch some guy try and sell me an orange juice maker.

The Dark Side!

The recession has even hit The Empire. Being an evil intergalactic despot just doesn't pay like it used to. Maybe that's why Darth Vader was spotted robbing banks in Long Island recently.Looks like the poor guy even had to hock his light saber.

76 Years Ago Today

It was 76 years ago today that John Dillinger ( or somebody who looked like him) was executed on a sweltering night in Chicago. Was it Dillinger who bought it out side the Biograph Theater that night? The FBI says yes, but they have yet to explain how the guy managed to change his eye color after death, or grow extra teeth.
One thing everyone seems to agree on though is whoever died that night didn't have a chance. There was no attempt to take him alive. The saw him, and they shot him. None of this "Stop or we'll shoot stuff."
The only federal warrant on this guy was for taking a stolen car across state lines. He had never been convicted of a murder, and had only been accused of one, shooting a cop in self defense. Most witness were unsure if it even was Dillinger who was the one who shot the cop, or even if he was there at all that day. Most witnesses also claimed whoever it was who killed that cop  had returned fire, but had  aimed low.
Dillinger was a bank robber who put people in danger with his antics, and hung out with murderers, but he never shot a man in the back, something "the good guys" didn't hesitate to do on the night of July 22, 1934.

Legs Diamond DOA

Sure, we all know about Jack "Legs" Diamond. The guy bounced back from four hit attempts before finally taking a few fatal slugs in the head. The thing we don't know is who gave the order that sent this famous bootlegger on the long dirt nap.
Most people assumed it was his old pal Dutch Schultz who finally found some bullets that wouldn't bounce off of Legs, but there are rumors it may not have been the Dutchman, or anyone else in the rackets. In 1974, author William Kennedy quoted Albany Democratic party boss Dan O’Connell as saying that he sent Albany police to execute Diamond. Seems this guy had a low tolerance for guys like Legs and wasn't worried about things like laws when it came to keeping his town racket free. Or maybe he just didn't want any competition. Either way Dutch was pleased.

Mickey Spillane

"Those big-shot writers could never dig the fact that there are more salted peanuts consumed than caviar." Mickey Spillane

Mickey Spillane! I never met the guy, but I'm sure we would have hit it off. This guy could churn out the yarns! His Mike Hammer novels are great, but my favorite was one called The Long Wait. When ever I wasn't busy greasing the hand rails in the handicapped stall at the truck stop, or pissing in the gold fish tank at Walmart, I would be often perusing one of Mickey's fine tomes. Rest In Peace, pal!

Cory Doctorow??!!!!

I write like
Cory Doctorow
I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!
According to this website I found I write like somebody named Cory Doctorow! I guess the guy never wrote any books about exploding heads or naked hookers tied to pool tables because I never heard of him.

Human Centipede!

Whoa! Everybody was bitching because Hollywood keeps churning out shitty remakes, and never does anything original. Now we get this! I'm pretty sure nobody has used this material before. I'm pretty sure nobody else ever will. IMBD

New Orleans

I was tooling around the city in my Bunnymobile yesterday, when I decided to drive past the spot where Alvin Karpis got nabbed by the Feds. Not much to see there, so it was off to look up Oswald's old digs over on Magazine, and then back down Canal to Metarie to drive by Carlos Marcello's house.
A lot of shit went on down here, but I suppose our big claim to fame, crime-wise, would be that this was the place where the plot to hit Kennedy was hatched. Sure, I know the Warren Commission claimed Oswald acted alone, but that same report also said Carlos Marcello was just an innocent tomato salesman.
I ended my tour back in the French Quarter on Bourbon. Right there above the Voodoo shop is the place where a guy killed his girlfriend and ate her. Gotta love this town!

Superhero Movie Costumes

What is this crap?!

They just released a photo of the new Green Lantern Costume from the new movie. He's got the mask and the big funky lantern symbol on his chest, but I don't remember Green Lantern having all those glowing lines stuck all over him. And what's that shit made of? He looks like he's wearing a rubber muscle suit. In the comics it always looked like the super guys painted their suits on. In the movies they look like they bought a hot glue gun from the craft store and tried to turn themselves into an after school project. Spider-Man now has rubber webs stuck on his costume instead of black painted lines, and even Superman is going around with a big "S" plaque glued to his chest. It's a good thing these guys have super powers. With every design element of their costumes being 3-D,they wouldn't be able to move otherwise.

The Bunny Hole
New shit!

Speaking Of Depression Era Crime

If you're interested in the history of crime in America, or just want a good read, check out The Complete Public Enemy Almanac by William J. Helmer and Rick Mattix. Crime fans should recognize both these names for some of the other books they've churned out and for things like this cool ass website: Gangsters And Outlaws
This book pretty much covers it all. The Bibliography alone is worth the price of admission.

The Price Of Fame

I always liked the old school gangsters and outlaws. These new guys got no class. You look at the Fed's Most Wanted list, and it looks like somebody was taking pictures of guys on skid row on casual day. Bums. Back in the day a criminal knew how to dress. What's the point of raking in the dough if you still go around like you can't carry change because of the holes in your pockets?

And most of these current guys are just plain nut jobs. Back in the 20s and 30s, you had guys who robbed and killed, but they didn't usually do it because the dog told them to do it.

Of all the depression era criminals, two stand out above all the rest. There's nobody more famous than Al Capone and John Dillinger. Guys who have never heard of Dutch Schultz or Baby Face Nelson can usually tell you something about these guys. Think of gangster, and you think of Capone. Think of bank robber, and you see Dillinger (or Jessie James if you're into the whole cowboy thing.) These guys are legends now, but they were already famous while they were alive. How many gangsters do you know who hold press conferences and make the cover of Time like Capone? They were stars. That is why we remember them, and that is why they went down. Were either of these guys the most evil or dangerous in their line of work? Far from it. Dillinger would offer his hostages taxi fair and let them wear his coat if it was cold. Capone fed thousands of people during the depression and even paid the medical bills for innocent bystanders wounded when a rival gang tried to rub him out. No, these guys became targets because they did things in a big loud way.

Welcome To The Bunny Hole!

Yawn. I've found something new to play with. In between bouts of drunken violence and dodging the police I'll try to post something here.

Monday, July 12, 2010


Think you're free? Think that just because you live in America you get to be your own person and are the master of your own fate? Think again.

Truth is, if you're broke you don't have the means to pursue your dreams, unless your dream is to sit under the overpass with a cardboard sign and a bag of butts you collected off the parking lot. If you have a job you just might be even worse off, having a roof over you while you sleep, but not much, not even time.

You could get arrested. Then you'd have a roof over your head and plenty of time to pump iron and read books about accounting and shit.

So, find some way to get enough green to buy some dope and booze ( stealing it works best) and don't worry about any of that "getting a head" crap they pump you full of in school.

Peace And Love

Give me a piece and I'll love you for as long as it takes me to get a nut.

So, what the fuck has been going on in Bunnyland? Not fucking much! Things used to be more fucking exciting. Back in the 20s and 30s it was all about gang wars and whores. The 40s kinda dragged, but in the 50s we had hot rods and freaky beatnik chicks. The 60s were just chock full of drugs and "free love."

Except for muscle cars and punk, the 70s sucked, and the 80s were total shit. From then on it's all been down hill. I FUCKING WANT SOME FUCKING EXCITEMENT!!!!!! Most of the "musicians" out today sound like fag versions of Pat Boone, and television has gone from shitty shows to shitty hour long commercials. And what about drugs? Does anybody even try to come up with anything that does something new?

There is one ray of light though. They call it The Human Centipede! Reminds me of some parties I've been to!
