Movie Review: Jason Goes To Hell: The Final Friday (1993)

Movie Review: Jason Goes To Hell: The Final Friday (1993)

After 8 iterations of the Jason Voorhees legacy spanning everything from his mother’s lakeside rampage in the original to his battle with a telekinetic chick and his eventual invasion of New York City, it’s obvious that something about a kid who drowned in a lake because of the neglect of his teenage summer camp caretakers resonated with people. I guess maybe the director of this film felt that it was time to put the legend to rest.

After his relaxing vacation in New York, the nearly invincible Jason Voorhees returns to the screen in a whole new, horribly unoriginal sequel called Jason Goes To Hell: The Final Friday. The movie is so bad that its own title has to reassure you twice that it’s going to be the last in the series.

Eureeka’s Castle

Eureeka’s Castle

One of my favorite Sesame-Street-esque pieces of the Nickelodeon entertainment puzzle was a little children’s variety show of sorts called Eureeka’s Castle. Co-created by R. L. Stine, of Goosebumps infamy (Say cheese and die, bitch!), this puppet-driven kids’ fantasy land ran from September 4, 1989 to June 30, 1995.

The show takes the viewer into the daily lives of various puppets and chronicles their wacky adventures that all involve some sort of important life lesson.

Set in Madison, Pennsylvania in the summer of 1972, My Girl is a film about growing up and coming to terms with death.

Uses for Chicken Bones Other Than Stock: God Sauce Recipe

Uses for Chicken Bones Other Than Stock: God Sauce Recipe

I decided to use my current stash of leftover bones as a way to imbue extra layers of flavor as well as gelatin into my favorite sauce recipes. A soy and gochujang based version is one of my most-coveted. That’s why I call it “God Sauce.” It goes well on everything savory that it touches.

Savory and Spicy Harissa Meatballs Recipe

Savory and Spicy Harissa Meatballs Recipe

Harissa’s origins are from the North African country of Tunisia and it is, essentially, a delicately spiced chili pepper paste. In addition to red chili peppers, the herb and spice combination can include such delicious components as garlic paste, coriander, saffron, rose, caraway, cumin, onion, etc.

The paste can be found in most grocery stores or it is also easily available online. It makes a great complement to any meat dish (chicken, turkey, beef, goat, lamb, fish) and works in many stews or as a flavoring for rice or couscous. I would call it North Africa’s ketchup, but that would be severely under appreciating the glory of harissa.

I decided to try to make an African & Middle Eastern inspired meatball recipe using the paste and thus was born these delicious harissa meatballs.

Adventures in Exploring a Container of Assorted Lego Pieces

Adventures in Exploring a Container of Assorted Lego Pieces

Everyone with a childhood worth bragging about, at some point, had a container of random Lego pieces somewhere in their bedroom. Today, I’m cracking into mine and exploring some of my favorite discoveries.

While some may have had theirs in a Rubbermaid container, a cardboard box, or a reused box of a larger Lego play set, mine lived in a Teenage Mutant Nina Turtles suitcase.

Movie Review: Batman: Mask of the Phantasm (1993)

Movie Review: Batman: Mask of the Phantasm (1993)

In 1993, Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill, the best Batman/Joker duo ever to grace the screen, took part in an animated movie based on the series that would capture my heart and refuse to let go. Even 23 years later, I can still remember my dad’s pirated VHS tape of “Batman: Mask of the Phantasm” and how many times I watched the damn thing. While it was supposed to be a theatrical release, Warner Brothers decided to keep it extremely limited and it only really gained a cult status when it was released on VHS.

Bill & Ted’s Excellent Trading Cards

Bill & Ted’s Excellent Trading Cards

I discovered a used, incomplete set of Bill & Ted trading cards that caught my eye. They were cheap, dated, and their subject material was little more than scenes from the movie, but I needed to have them.
