We just watched the documentary about Harry Nilsson. This song hurt my heart when I was a kid. I couldn’t take the lonesome. It is 1,000 fall days worth of beauty, longing and loss.

Netflix streaming is really great around Halloween. In just the last few weeks we’ve watched The Man Without a Body, The Thing with Two Heads, The Alligator People, Curse of the Swamp Creature to name a only a few. The little punks we’re watching with just eat up the cheap cheese effects and over the top acting. But these films are really great and some of the music, cinematography and art direction are truly genius. Here are some pics we took of the absolutely brilliant, The Manster.
