Crafton celebrity news
as Miss Hutchison would say, "aujourd'hui, je
suis malade". Today, I am sick. And so is one
of my Boxers.
lying a la Camille, with a sick dog,
throughout the a.m. hours, i happened upon one of
those obnoxious morning television programs. stay
with me, because there is more to my story than
the fact that they should have put Bryant Gumble
on the island with the "Survivors" because the
others would have eaten *him* instead of rats, and
we would be rid of an egotistical morning talkshow
Just my opinion :-)
it wasn't Gumble, and i cannot even remember
what station, but i telecommandoed around the dial
and happened to hit a talkshow *just* when the
"expert" morning movie reviewer was holding forth,
and the group discussion got around to horror
movies. I missed the part about why horror movies
were the subject, but the group asked each other
what was the scariest movie they had ever seen.
It was almost like watching a slumber party from
The Exorcist garnered a couple of votes in
this group of about six participants, and the
movie reviewer mentioned a couple other gruesome
films--not Psycho, though, which I thought was
odd, or The Birds. Maybe I missed the part where
they defined "horror movie". maybe "horror" had
to be worse than scary.
anyway, the movie reviewer said, solemnly,
"The Night of the Living Dead".
I rose up off my sickbed, practically hurling
the sick Boxer sleeping next to me to the floor,
and yelled, "Judy Ridley! Crafton High School!
I have to say to Judy, out there in
cougarland, I had a hard time watching that movie
and I closed my eyes during a lot of the really
scary parts when the living dead were trying to
break into the house, but I watched NOLD to see
you in there somewhere. I could never figure out
which ghoul you were. You looked so pretty in the
shop in Shadyside, and no one in that film was
Some day you, Judy, must do a post about
making the movie. Which grave did you come out
of? Which human did you terrorize? How did you
get the role? Was it scary playing the role of a
ghoul, or was it funny, in which case, how did you
keep from laughing? Et cetera.
to finish the midmorning television talkshow,
the movie reviewer went on to comment about "The
Night of the Living Dead II". I don't know if you
were in this, Judy, or if you were already in
suburbia. He said he was in Pittsburgh, in the
mall where the film was made, and that he was so
scared that he couldn't even get out of his car.
this sounded a bit dramatic to me, but maybe
his comments will create new interest in the scary
original and Judy will get residuals.

That is not fostering. That is practically adopting.
Good on you!
Which grave did Dan crawl out of?
