Don't you love that our LJ is just a spam section for our website? But we do take the time to write original articles over at Horroryearbook.com and on our My Space Blog just too many damn things to update.|
The Other Side of Morning by Patrick Green
Well as close as we're going to get, anyway.
When I started HorrorYearbook.com I wanted to have a very diverse staff, from all different walks of life. Most horror websites are either guys with tattoos and lame facial hair, a bunch of nerds or some loser with long black hair and some dumb name like Mr. Darkness.
The horror genre is so much more than that.
The idea was to look at all sides of horror, the sleazy side, the fun side, the intellectual side. I wanted articles that ranged from Linnea Quigley's boobs to a "a feminist look at horror films" or something like that. So thank God we have Patrick Green to break up my drunken rants & temper-tantrums with some actual, real writing and interesting articles.
So I beg of you come on over and read The Other Side of Morning by Patrick Green and learn a little about the art of Seven then read the I Tried! I Lost! George Romero's 'Diary of the Dead' 1st Pictures by ME (WIL Keiper) and see what I'm talking about.
One is a well written article about art, one is a poorly written article with a picture of a zombie biting somebody's penis off.
Maniacal Motivation: Jason Voorhees by Chris Cooper
Orignally posted on HorrorYearbook.com.
I'm not lying when I say this. I have friends from all walks of life, Waiters, Lawyers, even a doctor of science but Chris Cooper may be my best friend for the longest. He's may not be the most desirable person in the world, but I've know him a long time and he's a dedicated friend. An ex-heroin addict, homeless, squater (and not those squaters with dogs and camping gear. This guy was really homeless), who I don't think ever brushes his teeth. He has been every where, even lived in a trailer park in Alabama and in my broke down van behind a Pizza Hut, but now he is sedated and tucked away in boring-ass Florida. So since he is a horror fan I asked him to write some stuff for me. I figured it would be a perspective not really seen on a horror website before and we would have everything covered at HorrorYearbook.com. Offering the most diverse staff on the net, we have a woman's perspective, a gay guy, a black guy, 2 whites guys and a certified, scumbag who has better grammar skills then me. Top that!
I don't expect him to write much but when he does, it sure will be fun and informative, trust me. So here is part of his 1st article. You can read the rest HERE
We all know (or at least should) that Pamela Voorhees sought vengence for her retarded son's death by punishing teenage fornicators and/or drug and alcohol users. And that when she died, Jason rose from the dead and killed her murderer. Now, with his mother avenged, why did/does Jason continue to kill anyone who tresspassed in the Camp Crystal Lake area?
Sure, that sounds like a stupid question.. but what's even more stupid is the common answer you would recieve, which is to punish teenager's illicit behaviour as did his mother.
However, Jason is not his mother, nor did he ever really know her after his childhood death drove her to insanity. Glimps of her final hours isn't going to teach one as mentally retarded as Jason his purpose in life.
I feel, Jason has proved to the observor that he kills indiscriminatly. f his victim is a teenager that happens to be drinking and is promiscous, it..s not even a coincedance, because guess what? that describes every single teenager in America. Not to mention that he does always try to kill the straight laced virgins as well.. they just run too fast. Jason has also killed many ..innocent people.., even some mothers....
