The First Ever Billy Loves Stu Meme for Horror Bloggers


When I started this blog way back in 2007, there were only a handful of horror blogs - today, (well, the last time I checked) there are 588,933,041 horror blogs out there.  Seriously!  Would I lie about something like this?   I figure that EVERYONE who has watched a scary movie, thriller, sci/fi, or slasher film wants the world to know their opinion on said film ... and so now the world knows that Horrophanatic666, who runs the blog, 666 Reasons Why I Love Horror believes that Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan is the most AMAZING film ever made.

I thought it might be a nifty idea, if I created a Meme for horror bloggers to complete so that the next time someone stumbles across the electronic journal of a burgeoning Pauline Kael, or Stephen King-wanna-be; the reader might get a better idea of where this bloody blogger is coming from.  So, without further ado, here is ...


The First Ever Billy Loves Stu Meme for Horror Bloggers
(my answers, obviously, are being supplied, but feel free to rip this off and add your own!)
1: In Ten Words or Less, Describe Your Blog:

2: During What Cinematic Era Where you Born?
                                            A: The Classic Horror Era (late 30's to 40's)
                                            B: The Atomic Monster/Nuclear Angst Era (the late 40's through 50's)
                                            C: The Psycho Era ( Early 60's)
                                            D: The Rosemary's Baby Era (Mid to Late 60's)
                                            E: The Exorcism Era (Early to mid 70's)
                                            F: The Halloween Era (Late 70's to Early 80's)
                                            G: The Slasher Era (Mid to late 80's)
                                            H: The Self Referential/Post Modern Era (1990 to 1999)
                                    
3: The Carrie Compatibility Question:
                                           (gay men and straight women - make your choice from section A)
                                           A: Billy Nolan or Tommy Ross, who would you take to the prom?
                                           (straight guys and lesbians - make your choice from section B)
                                           B: Sue Snell or Chris Hargensen, who would you take to the prom?

4: You have been given an ungodly amount of money, and total control of a major motion picture studio - what would your dream Horror project be?

5: What horror film "franchise" that others have embraced, left you cold?

6:  Is Michael Bay the Antichrist?

7: Dracula, The Wolf Man, The Frankenstein Monster - which one of these classic villains scares you, and why?

8: Tell me about a scene from a NON HORROR Film that scares the crap out of you:

9: Baby Jane Hudson invites you over to her house for lunch.  What do you bring?

10: So, between you and me, do you have any ulterior motives for blogging?  Come, on you can tell me, it will be our little secret, I won't tell a soul.

11: What would you have brought to Rosemary Woodhouse's baby shower?

12: Godzilla vs The Cloverfield Monster, who wins?

13: If you found out that Rob Zombie was reading your blog, what would you post in hopes that he read it?

14: What is your favorite NON HORROR FILM, and why?

15: If blogging technology did not exist, what would you be doing?

OK, have at it kids...and if you'd like to see my answers, continue on:

1:A poorly written blog by a gay horror film fan...

2: 1958 is my birth year, that would place me in B The Atomic Monster / Nuclear Angst Era.

3: Tommy Ross, for sure...oh to run my fingers through that tangle of golden hair!

4: I would mount a major motion picture of Stephen King's the Stand.  It would be a painfully faithful adaption of the novel.  There would be NO big stars in it, however, I would have the film broken down into three separate releases with three different directors attached.   George Romero would have Part I (Captain Trips),Robert Rodriguez would direct Part II (On the Boarder), and Paul Thomas Anderson would helm part III (The Stand). 

5: The Saw Films - probably the most dreadful, stink-out-loud tripe I have ever seen.  Also The Friday the 13th Films.  I really enjoyed Friday1, but all the logic went out the window with the sequels ... I mean, come on, if Jason was actually alive, what was Mrs. Voorhees' motivation about?   

6: Michael Bay leaves the smell of sulfur in his wake.

7: Dracula!  You only had to worry about The Wolfman during a full moon, The Frankenstein Monster was slow and could easily be outrun, but Dracula was suave and calculating.  If he really wanted you, you were toast.

8: I've mentioned this before; the creepy homeless person who lives behind the dumpster in David Lynch's Mulholland Drive.   I've been haunted by that freak ever since I first saw the film.

9: Six bottles of scotch and three bottles of gin.  Oh and a box of chocolates for Miss Blanche and a helmet for Elvira.

10: My motives are as pure as the driven snow...

11: Baby talon clippers, a hooded onesie and a copy of Dr. Spock's baby book.

12: Godzilla's laser breath would probably finish off The Cloverfield Monster, and if not, Godzilla could always drop kick the bastard back into the Hudson.

13: I would post an open letter to him, begging him to quit the white trash horror thing and go back to making music.  Oh, and I'd also tell him to take a shower.

14: The Godfather. Amen.

15: I would probably be foaming at the mouth, drinking to excess and chain smoking.  Blogging is such a great stress relief.

1: In Ten Words or Less, Describe Your Blog:

A place to share my never-outgrown childhood obsession.

2: During What Cinematic Era Where you Born?

B: The Atomic Monster/Nuclear Angst Era (the late 40's through 50's). 1955, right in the middle of the most paranoid decade ever.

3: The Carrie Compatibility Question: who would you take to the prom -- Tommy Ross or Billy Nolan

Billy Nolan, but I think I’d rather skip the prom and go directly to the sleazebag motel.

4: You have been given an ungodly amount of money, and total control of a major motion picture studio - what would your dream Horror project be?

A spoof of “Circus Of Horrors” with a big part in it for Joan Rivers.

5: What horror film "franchise" that others have embraced, left you cold?

Hellboy. I want to see Ron Perlman run around shirtless WITHOUT tons of special effects body make-up, thank you very much.

6: Is Michael Bay the Antichrist?

Now that Jerry Falwell is dead, we do need a replacement.

7: Dracula, The Wolf Man, The Frankenstein Monster - which one of these classic villains scares you, and why?

I’m grooving on Koot from “True Blood” at the moment. I’ve got a shiny new brand on my bottom to prove it.

8: Tell me about a scene from a NON HORROR Film that scares the crap out of you:

Denise Richards dancing with a huge plush Jesus in “Drop Dead Gorgeous” while singing “Can’t Take My Eyes off Of You.”

9: Baby Jane Hudson invites you over to her house for lunch. What do you bring?

A parakeet and some pesto. Basil and poultry go well together.


10: So, between you and me, do you have any ulterior motives for blogging? Come, on you can tell me, it will be our little secret, I won't tell a soul.

I just want to make sure that if someone Googles my name they find something other than news stories about that unfortunate incident at the community pool. Please, people, move on already. I have.

11: What would you have brought to Rosemary Woodhouse's baby shower?

Little horse-shoes for his cloven hooves.

12: Godzilla vs The Cloverfield Monster, who wins?

Godzilla, because there will always have to be another sequel.

13: If you found out that Rob Zombie was reading your blog, what would you post in hopes that he read it?

A suggestion that his next project should be a beefcake calendar featuring himself and other tattooed hippie/biker rough trade.

14: What is your favorite NON HORROR FILM, and why?

“The Gang’s All Here,” because of Carmen Miranda’s surreal big hat number –especially the banana dance sequence, of course.

15: If blogging technology did not exist, what would you be doing?

Probably stalking Rob Zombie.
