FINAL GIRL explores the slasher flicks of the '70s and '80s...and all the other horror movies I feel like talking about, too. This is life on the EDGE...beware yon spoilers!

Feb 14, 2008

it's that day

Dear y'all,

Today's the day that seems to divide people even more than such hot button topics as gun control or the episode of The Facts of Life where Natalie lost her virginity: yes, it's Valentine's Day. People who hate it seem to want February 14th to disappear from the calendar completely in a mushroom cloud explosion of hate and pain, while people who love it want every day to be Valentine's Day. They also maybe want a Journey Heart Pendant, available at your local Zales for under $200.

NOTE: Should anyone ever get me anything so hideously retarded as a Journey Heart Pendant from my local Zales for Valentine's Day or, for that matter, any other day, I would...I would...I would be so mortified and angry that I would figure out a way to somehow become temporarily Sicilian so I could put a hex to end all fucking hexes on whoever gave me the thing to begin with.

Yes yes, it's the thought that counts...which is exactly why such a vehement reaction would be necessary.

Dammit! There goes all my Zales advertising dollars.

Anyway, I don't know what the point of all this is. If you like Valentine's Day, good for you. I hope you have a lovely time. If you loathe it, okay. Don't worry, it'll all be over soon.

Am I trite enough to watch My Bloody Valentine at some point today? Why yes...yes, I am. It's a great fucking movie. Am I lazy enough to simply repost the screencaps I used last year? Why yes...yes, I am. Happy V-Day, my babies!

Hope you enjoy the day, Stacie!

You give us a bloody valentine everyday, so here's a less-drippy one for you. ✑♡ (Sorry, the pen nib is as close as I could come to the stabby-stabby.)

Happy V-Day, Staciekins! My gift to you!

Happy Valentines day, its actually my birthday too, instead of a rom-com we are going to go check out the Orphanage.

Valentine's Day is a Christian
corruption of a pagan festival
involving werewolves, blood and
fucking. So wish people a happy
Horny Werewolf Day and see what
happens.

or so Warren Ellis wrote earlier today

just saw My Bloody Valentine last Friday night on the big screen in San Francisco - at the Castro Theater -- if you are in SF --- come to a Midnites for Maniacs screening (once a month) at the Castro -- I'm a Maniac for the Midnites...http://midnitesformaniacs.com/

Hey there. This doesn't really have anything to do with the topic, just discovered your blog and thought I'd say it's a good one.

Great scene from a very funny movie. Thansk.

For future reference (clip & save):

When she was 3 years old, my grandmother and her familia emigrated to the United States from Sicily. Contact me for all your hex-related needs. Or a good sauce recipe.

And you are always blogging about what I am thinking - I was cringing at every commercial break all week while they portrayed boyfriends & husbands presenting heart-shaped pendants and girlfriends & wives swooning over them. Ugh.
