His Name Was Jason (100 Films in 2011)

by Jamie Sanford on October 14, 2011

76. His Name Was Jason: 30 Years of Friday the 13th (available to stream on Netflix and Amazon)

Jason in Times Square!

Here is the trailer (of sorts) for His Name Was Jason: 30 Years of Friday the 13th.

His Name Was Jason: 30 Years of Friday the 13th is a television documentary show covering the yeas-long span of the Friday the 13th film series.  Hosted by Tom Savini, it’s an enjoyable ride through movies that were classics in the 80s horror genre.

Tom Savini walks through many of Jason’s best kills while hosting the show.

Kane Hodder, who played Jason in 4 films, was one of the many cast members interviewed for this documentary recap.

This is a really enjoyable to watch.  Some of the cast members seem to have vanished from the Earth since their appearance in these movies, so it’s fun to see how everyone looks now.  Betsy Palmer, who played Mrs. Voorhees in the first movie, looks spectacular! (Granted, this was released in 2009, but still.)

I am a little grossed out by really graphic horror movies, but these movies, especially the early ones when it was more about the buildup and just WAITING for something to happen.  Plus, Kane Hodder said that his favorite Jason kill was the one where Jason slams someone in a sleeping bag up against a tree – and that is my favorite too.

I really love October, I love Halloween, so this was a good way to gear up. I will have to watch some other horror movies before the month is out.

His Name Was Jason: 30 Years of Friday the 13th, is available on DVD from Amazon for $11.49.

Sephora by OPI GLEE Collection (Product Review)

by Jamie Sanford on July 7, 2011

Sephora by OPI GLEE Collection (Product Review)

A few months ago, I was lucky enough to win the “Sephora Hot Now” sweepstakes on Facebook.  I received a package of 7 full-size products from Sephora, one of which has emerged as the clear favorite – a .5 fluid-ounce bottle of Sephora by OPI from the GLEE collection, in a beautiful blue color called Slushied.  Here’s a post on the PolishAholic with swatches of nearly the entire GLEE collection.

I am no stranger to bright and bold nail colors, so I was excited that this bottle came in my package from Sephora!  I immediately tried it and liked it, but I decided to write about it now because I just decided to use it again and I’m thrilled with the results.

Don’t judge my nail polish application skills, I am no professional.  The decal on my ring finger is from a package I purchased from Walgreens, the brand is Broadway Nails.

The color is totally opaque after 2 coats, and the polish levels itself pretty well, which is good for those of us with less than perfect painting abilities.  The decals were an afterthought, but they are a great way to add something interesting with minimal effort.  I put a little sticker on over the polish and then threw up some Seche Vite top coat and I was good to go.

I think I’ll definitely be trying to pick up a few more of these Glee polishes from Sephora.  The .5 fluid-ounce bottles of the GLEE collection nail polishes from Sephora by OPI are available for $9.50 each from Sephora and Sephora.com.

Disclosure: I won the bottle of GLEE collection nail polish in a contest I entered on the Sephora Facebook page.  I bought the decals and the top coat myself.

Sights and Sounds #22

Finally the video for my favorite song from the Kanye West My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy album, “Monster,” is here.

My girl Naya Rivera, who I love on Glee, got a record deal. Good for her.

Beyonce’s next single is “Best I Never Had.” I’m sort of eh on it.

Even better from Beyonce is the amazing video that Jay-Z took backstage at the American Idol finale. This was a rehearsal! Insane.

Sights & Sounds #2

by Jamie Sanford on February 13, 2011

Sights and sounds for this week!

First up, the audio recording of the big Glee halftime number. No, not the terrible halftime show on the actual Superbowl, the superior one that was put on later on Glee.  That show has been a little up and down but that number was STELLAR.  It’s a mashup of “Thriller” and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ “Heads Will Roll” and I really enjoyed it.

You can watch the full post-Superbowl episode of Glee here.

Speaking of Glee, Amber Riley looks fierce in this photo from Essence!

I really enjoyed Adele’s first album, and you can listen to her new album in full on NPR.

Outtakes from the Mini Darth Vader Volkswagen commercial! I love that kid so much.

My Uncle John sent me this video. Seeing as me and my Blackberry are always in a fight these days, I enjoyed it.

These kinds of things always make me feel better about myself in pictures.  This does look like less work than I’ve seen on other people though.

Grammys are on on tonight! I’m excited to see Lady Gaga perform her new song:

Have a good week everyone!
