On Remembering Lilith: Natalie Merchant

@parallel-lines As a fellow stridentoldnintiesriotgrrrl (yay!) I'm totally with you on how Lilith seemed so watered down and sanitized that it just rubbed me the wrong way. However, after a particularly ugly breakup with a beau, I was all "NATALIEEEEEE!" whenever I needed to cry my little eyeballs out.

On "Sharp Dressed Man," ZZ Top

When I was I kid, I wished ZZ Top would show up, transform me into a hottie, and hand me the shiny keys to that awesome car. Heck, that is still my dream.

On The Bestworst Guy

@FulanaDeTallcan I wish I could time travel back to the '00s just to give myself that awesome piece of advice. It would have spared me a lot of heartache.

I love this series so much that if I had a TARDIS, I would travel to the future to read the next installment.

On Scandals of Classic Hollywood: The Long Suicide of Montgomery Clift

A Place in the Sun in one of my all time favorite movies. I remember watching it when I was about 11, and thinking Montgomery Clift was the most handsome man I had ever seen (sorry, Adam Ant). He and Elizabeth Taylor were definitely the genetic Super Lotto winners.

On Five Scarring Horror Movies I Watched at Slumber Parties

The Ring and The Exorcist scared me to the point where I was unable to sleep for days---oh, and I was in my mid-20's when I saw them. It didn't help that the mirror in my bathroom was EXACTLY like the one Samara would appear in. In fact I was so scared, I refused to turn off the tv, so Samara wouldn't be able to turn it on. Logic goes out the window when you haven't slept for 3 days.

@Hellcat Oh yes, Grimm's Grimmest is very good compilation of gory, not-for-the-kiddies fairy tales.

On Five Scarring Horror Movies I Watched at Slumber Parties

@quandjebois Stephen King's IT scared me so much, that to this day I occasionally have dreams about Pennywise handing me a pinwheel right before he kills me. Also I have a huge crush on Tim Curry...I'm too not sure that speaks well of my mental state.
