I am a movie nerd, I love horror and classics and documentaries. I like geeking out and ranting from my little corner of the internet.

If you haven’t seen The Bletchley Circle yet, go watch it now. Srsly. It’s three episodes of brilliant, gripping mystery. Solved by four extraordinary women.

Girls

Some girls are confident

some girls are shy

some girls like boys

image

some girls like girls

sometimes, they like both

image

some girls don’t dress in a feminine way

image

and some do

image

and some girls weren’t born girls, and that’s fine

image



some girls cover up

image

and some girls don’t

image

some girls are bigger

image

some girls are smaller 

image

some girls are smart

image

and some girls aren’t

image

some girls are nice

image

and some girls are mean

image



but no matter what,

all girls are people

and we should be treated like it.

Jen’s Documentary Corner! Paul Williams: Still Alive

Swan Phantom of the Paradise

I laughed with my husband this weekend that I imprinted as a child on ’70s radio. I love Fleetwood Mac, Harry Nilsson, The Carpenters and, lastly, I love Paul Williams. I am sure most of my memories of Paul Williams come from The Muppet Show and Smokey and the Bandit. And the dozens of guest appearances on game shows. But his music.. his music is heartfelt. It comes from a place of sadness and loneliness. His uniqueness separated him from people but also seemed to create a depth that touches many.

His childhood was troubled. His adulthood was plagued with addiction. He is responsible for some of the most timeless songs sung by other people. The Rainbow Connection can reduce me to tears whenever I hear it, then there is We’ve Only Just Begun by The Carpenters, Evergreen by Barbra Streisand, Fill Your Heart by David Bowie and countless more.

Stephen Kessler made a documentary about Paul Williams, called Paul Williams Still Alive. The documentary does him a disservice. The documentarian seems to feel that the story that should be told is his love of Paul Williams vs. the story of Paul Williams himself. Because his love seems fickle, midway through the process it feels like he loses his way; he becomes cruel with his pushes for sensationalism and dirt. The way the editor (David Zieff) cut the film it really feels as though he thought the director was a jerk and wanted to make sure we realize that too. There are moments which are truly touching and human. My take-away from this movie is what a multi-layered, human, and humble man Paul Williams is. You see how much he has touched, and raised up, others through his words and music. You see the love on the faces of the fans. You see the lives he touches in his speaking tours on sobriety and staying clean.

All this documentary did was make me realize that he deserves better. I left it hoping someone else sees this and allows him to fully tell the story of his family, his work in the movies (especially Phantom of the Paradise), and his lifetime spent creating music and the effect all of it has had on others. He gives every appearance of having found peace and joy in his life. I wish his tale had been better told so we could experience that with him.

Welcome to another Halloween season episode of your favorite horror movie podcast! (At least, we assume we’re your favorite horror movie podcast. If we’re not, please don’t tell us.)

In this episode, Jennifer rants about Kevin Smith, whose recent film, “Tusk,” seems to be one inside joke aimed at the fans of podcast. We here at Don’t Read the Latin promise that if we ever make a movie of our own, we’re not going to just pander to our existing fanbase — we intend to pander to everyone.)

We also talk about economy of storytelling, Harlan Ellison, Jen’s Big Black Gothic Yard Sale, and Michael’s upcoming Halloween reading!
