DATELINE—Dearborn, Michigan, January 7, 1983. The Henry Ford Community Center plays host to the Misfits’ Earth A.D. tour. Guitarist Doyle (top) cuts his usual striking figure while singer Glenn Danzig (bottom) engages the crowd. Earlier that day the Misfits taped a riotous appearance on a local cable access television show called “Why Be Something You’re Not?” which you may view in its entirety here because we live in the future. 

Book Review: The Art of the B-Movie Poster

When a movie has no big stars or advertising budget to rely on, they often utilize eye-catching artwork to draw audiences to the theater. The Art of the B-Movie Poster collects over 1,000 such posters from the 1940s through the 1970s. Although most people have never even heard of the majority of the titles highlighted across the more than 300 pages, editor Adam Newell treats each one as if it’s a classic cinematic achievement.

The tome is divided into five convenient chapters: moral panic, action, horror, sci-fi, and sex. Each subject is then broken down into subcategories that receive a 2-4 page spread of art with a little blurb about the films featured. For example, the horror section - which, I’m happy to report, is the longest - highlights everything from Boris Karloff and Christopher Lee movies to Jaws rip-offs and Mexican horror.

13th Sign = Not Typical esoteric Astrology

I’ve been seeing a lot of that 13th sign debate again so I just wanted to put in my thoughts.
First things first, Astronomy and Astrology are two completely different things. Astronomy is to do with studying what’s going on in space meanwhile Astrology has to do with what’s happening on earth in relation to planetary energies and archetypes. 
I’ve also got a trust-y source from an author I read, Linda Goodman, and her thoughts on this on and off debate, 
“Astrologers use the signs of the zodiac, not the signs of constellations, when they talk about the positions of planets.
I only tell you this because there is an age-old debate about astrologers being one sign off– which astronomers bring up when they want to pick a fight. So if you just happen to be talking to an astronomer and you say, “I’m a Capricorn,” he or she will no doubt want to inform you that you were born under the constellation of Sagittarius. You can agree. You are both right, but about two different things.
Until about 200 A.D., the Earth was considered the centre of our solar system, rather than the sun. Then increased mathematical understandings brought new insights about the paths of the Earth and the Sun. Because the constellations are part of the fixed stars, their position in the new map of the heavens were affected by this shift: They ended up a sign away from their original positions.
 But astrology is based on the movement of the planets, so astrologers’ interpretations were unaffected by the discovery. The meaning of the signs of the zodiac remained unchanged.

So yes, it is possible to be born under the constellation Ophiuchus, but you are still the zodiac sign Scorpio or Sagittarius (which ever was interrupted).

Also astrology is highly based on the balance of nature and the number 12 is such an important number to our balance.

Hoped this helped those of you who were a little confused.

my world is built on rain
it falls from blue skies
and dampens my hair
turning strands into weapons
and warmth into weight

my soul shivers
it shakes as if the storm surrounding me
is the least of my worries

there is an earthquake inside my skin
i clash and fold and break
a planet unto myself
with a galaxy raging around me
full of stars brighter than i could ever glow

it’s a shame and a pity
being a planet
an earthquake
a human
no matter whether it’s a storm or a galaxy
i’m never good enough and endlessly shaking
