Hello dudes, dudettes, and "others". I know I've been remiss lately, but I swear life without you has been completely miserable. To bribe you into liking me prove to you that I truly care, I'm going to bust out another Super Fango Sweepstakes Ticket Giveaway Extravatinydancah just for you! Two wicked lucky winners will each receive 2 one-day passes to Fangoria's Los Angeles convention, which runs April 17-19. I know I say this every time, but this time I mean it: the guest list is all ten kinds of kick ass: Sam Raimi! Adrienne King! Marilyn Burns! Tobe Hooper! Clive Barker! Ruggero Deodato!

I'll be wandering the floor sporting a dazed, blank look with just a hint of drool on my chin. Should be fun. To enter, send an email to stacieponder (at) gmail.com with FANGO in the subject line. Entries will be accepted until 9pm PST on Sunday, April 5. This will be a random drawing giveaway, so please don't plead with me for tickets because then I feel guilty when I don't draw your name.

Now then, onto something else. Did you know that I have a column at AMC's website? I know, I've never mentioned it before. Weird, right? Especially since I've been writing it for about a year now. Anyway, there's one up today that's about some of the more memorable second bananas in slasher flicks...some of them I love, some of them I love to hate. Go over, read it (if you don't, AMC said they'll punch a kitten), add your picks, and vote in the nifty poll that's tacked on at the end. Everybody loves voting!

There is not NEARLY enough love going on for Judy in that poll!

Reggie from Phantasm is gonna be there? And he didn't get his photo up on the poster? What gives?

He's a great second banana, by the way.

As much as I love Annie, Judy got my vote, I'm not gonna lie. It's the eponymous t-shirt and sullen face that clinched it for me.

Reggie IS a great second banana, you're right! I'm not sure who this "Jordan" "Ladd" is, why her picture is on the poster, or why I should care. Then again, I'm not Mrs Fangoria, so what do I know?

The poll is going to make my head explode. I want to go Judy but The Dream Warriors is the only Nightmare flick that I love...my loyalties are being tested!

If only these characters were able to bribe...that usually how my voting is decided.

No Wendy from Prom Night? :((( I guess you can only have one spoiled rich girl, and Judy has the t-shirt going on... on the other hand, Wendy has that car...

Jordan Ladd gets the best line in Cabin Fever: "That guy asked for our help. We lit him on fire." (But nobody loves that movie except me.)
