“…pop culture awesomeness at it’s best”?

Would you look at that? Would you look at THAT? It's a major award.

Would you look at that? Would you look at THAT? It's a major award.

Oh my…well…uh…I really wasn’t expecting this.

I just have a few people I’d like to thank.

First off, I’d like to thank Dre and Cube. I really couldn’t be as awesome as everyone says I am if it wasn’t for everything y’all taught me over the years.

Um…The Wife of course…I know, I know…you’re my everything, honey. Thanks for putting up with all the porn, 80s metal, and whatever other weird ass shit I find on the internet. I love you, you’re the best.

Oh, okay, I’m getting the “wrap it up“…um, thanks Becca at No Smoking In The Skull Cave, for bestowing this upon me…uh, I’m not worthy, I’m not worthy…heh…Wayne’s World….um, it really is an honor. I wish I really deserved it as much as you think I do. I’ll try harder…I promise!

Oh…and…uh…I’m just so proud to be part of such an amazing group of bloggers. I wouldn’t even know where to start if I had to give out such an award, but…uh…my admiration and respect goes out to my fellow recipients of this fine blue ribbon…uh…The Undead Film Critic…you’re awesome, man…completely DEAD-icated to the craft…keep it up! Uh…oh…those wild motherfuckers over at Deadlicious..um…great site guys, I can see why you wear masks…I’ve seen better heads on boils…heh, um…no seriously…heh. The Scandy Factory…truly a man with great taste in film and all of the arts…and by arts, I mean boobs. Um…okay, okay, I gotta’ wrap it up…check out Adventures In Nerdliness…and my other blog…um…The Bride Of Awesomeness for some hot internet action…um, okay…Thanks again!

The Alphabet Meme…Movie Meme A-Z

Well, well, well, looks like Becca tagged me with one of them there meme thing-a-ma-bobs that are all over the internet. This one’s about movies…and Lord knows, I love me some movies.

Here are the rules according to Blog Cabins:

(Oh, real quick, rule 3 looks all imposing and bossy, but once you figure out not to use any films from the Star Wars, LOTR, Indiana Jones, or the Narnia series, you’ll be fine).

The Rules

1. Pick one film to represent each letter of the alphabet.

2. The letter “A” and the word “The” do not count as the beginning of a film’s title, unless the film is simply titled A or The, and I don’t know of any films with those titles.

3. Return of the Jedi belongs under “R,” not “S” as in Star Wars Episode IV: Return of the Jedi. This rule applies to all films in the original Star Wars trilogy; all that followed start with “S.” Similarly, Raiders of the Lost Ark belongs under “R,” not “I” as in Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark. Conversely, all films in the LOTR series belong under “L” and all films in the Chronicles of Narnia series belong under “C,” as that’s what those filmmakers called their films from the start. In other words, movies are stuck with the titles their owners gave them at the time of their theatrical release. Use your better judgement to apply the above rule to any series/films not mentioned.

4. Films that start with a number are filed under the first letter of their number’s word. 12 Monkeys would be filed under “T.”

5. Link back to Blog Cabins in your post so that I can eventually type “alphabet meme” into Google and come up #1, then make a post where I declare that I am the King of Google.

6. If you’re selected, you have to then select 5 more people.

Alright, sounds easy enough…I wonder if I can do this with movies I actually own?

Need More Me?

You may have noticed a serious lack of content going on at Awesomeness these past few days…

There’s all sorts of big, big changes going down at Casa Canacorn and school is keeping me away from the internet (well, that’s not totally true) and my usual blogging.

Never fear, dear readers! Just hop on over to my other blog for endless minutes of entertainment and a snapshot into my mind’s eye:

Push It!

Push It!

How cool is that pic anyway? Becca, over at No Smoking In The Skull Cave whipped it up!

Thanks, sister! You are seriously awesome…and I should know!

So, waste some time over at The Bride…there’s all sort of goodies waiting for ya’!

Superhero Porn!

Fluffy Bunnies!


And all sorts of Other Stuff!

But remember, it’s NSFW! So be careful when clicking on those links!

Rocktober! Day31



Here it is! The final day of Rocktober! Boy, what a long strange month this turned out to be!

You know, Rocktober wasn’t a total failure…I realize that now. I’ve been particularly hard on myself the past 31 days…worrying that no one was enjoying all the (mostly) hard work I was putting into my month long horror/metal celebration.

But that wasn’t the case at all.

My good friend Bwana, was always a strong supporter of Rocktober and he totally brought us Donny Most‘s most horrific character since Ralph Malph…the totally awesome, MOLOCH on Day 3..

The lovely and talented, Becca, over at No Smoking In The Skull Cave gave Rocktober, not one, but two separate shout-outs this month! If you haven’t checked out her awesome blog, do yourself a favor and peep it post haste! Just click the banner!

My favorite Auntie and Unkle even threw a parade in honor of Rocktober over at Kindertrauma…(well, that’s not totally true…there is a parade, but it’s the 1st Annual Kindertrauma Halloween Parade and has nothing to do with Rocktober…heh.) Thanks, boys! You’re the bestest!

Oh, I can’t forget The Wife! She stood by her man during the soaring highs and soul crushing lows of Rocktober…and even though I couldn’t find a way to work in Mike Schank for her, she definitely helped my Rocktober dreams come true with her suggestions, comments, and understanding.

I also gotta’ give a special thanks to my good buddy and inspirational coach, Steve. (Steve has no links…he is a private man…and a genius…seriously…he’s super smart.) Thanks, Steve, you’re always good for a swift kick in the pants area to get me back on track! You’re wicked awesome. Say hello to your family for me.

Alright! Let’s do this! It’s Halloween and that means it’s the 31st day of Rocktober!!!!

Today….One Man…Three bands…all metal…all horror…

Glenn Anzalone!


That’s DANZIG, you chuckleheads!

First there was the horror punk of The Misfits!

Then there was the death rock of Samhain!

And finally, the dark metal-blues hybrid of Danzig!

Happy Halloween, fellow fiends! Thanks for sticking out Rocktober with me….now go eat some candy and watch a scary movie or two.

Rocktober! Day 22

Swan’s message on the back of my Phantom Of The Paradise LP:

An Invitation…
How exciting these satanic ’70s. This magical time when reality and fantasy are so cleverly disguised by the media masters. Full color shoot outs nightly on all channels. In the movies. In the news. Fact or fiction? Check your local TV listings if you’re left confused.

Here at The Paradise we offer you a special blend off ends and fact. Atrocity and art. Music and murder twice nightly. And is the horror you witness mere theatrics, or is it real? The only way to be sure…is to participate.

At The Paradise our performers are contracted to entertain you at any cost! And entertain you they will. Trust me… SWAN”

There is nothing I can say about this awesome Rocktober pick that hasn’t been covered at the amazing site, THE SWAN ARCHIVES!

You can also check out a review at one of my new favorite places to waste some time and learn a few things at: No Smoking In The Skull Cave!

Enough chatter…On with the music!

So, here we have The Undead performing “(The Beef Construction Song) Somebody Super Like You” followed by Beef’s, “Life At Last” (totally a Canacorn favorite):

Oh, Beef, could you be any cooler?

Beef. Knows drug real from real real.

Beef. Knows drug real from real real.

He steals every fucking scene he’s in…check it:

And that’s your quickie Rocktober post for today…things are crazy busy at Casa Canacorn this month…so Rocktober might have to suffer a bit. Never fear, I will complete this insane (or is it inane?) task of honoring 31 days of horror and metal on Awesomeness…of this I swear!
