SF Public Transportation

All I have to say is...

Ok, maybe I have a bit more to say.  Not to dwell on the nightmare (see what I did there) that is riding PT in SF, but its tragic.  I imagine better cities like NYC don't have to wait 20 minutes for a train to 3 stops.  Before I moved here, I had this elaborate fantasy of the fantastic rides on the underground commuters.  Sadly, I just get colds more often.  On the upside, I think I have picked up a few languages.

Where are they now? Horror Edition.

Kevin Spirtas from Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood

I should preface this little blurb by saying this Friday has always been one of my favorites.  It has the humor, the gore, the creative deaths but it also added some new elements.  For starters, Tina (our lady in distress) can move shit with her mind.  Yeah, they went there and it worked.  She was all bad ass and kicking some Jason ass.  The movie suffered because much of the gore was removed at the request of the MPAA.  However, it still remains a fun ride.

When watching this movie as a young closeted youth, I often thought about the tightness of his pants more than I should.  The hot guys in these movies were so great for a closeted youth.  Adults would think I was watching for the boobs or some shit but no, it was the occasional male arse that would make an appearance. 

Back to Kevin, he "might" be gay and apparently a lot of the cast from the film was too (lots of gossip was spilled in the book Crystal Lake Memories.  Can you imagine the Saturday nights on that set?

It turns out Kevin is still acting and still looks great.  He was in "Green Plaid Shirt" and did lots of theater work. 

A Bit Of Trivia

A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984):
Wes Craven first came up with the basic idea for the movie from several newspaper printed in the LA Times over a three year period about a group of Cambodian refugees from the Hmong tribe, several of whom died in the throes of horrific nightmares. The group had had come to America to escape the reign of Pol Pot, and within a year of arriving, three men had died, with the situation the same in each cases; the young, otherwise healthy, man would have a nightmare then refuse to sleep for as long as possible. Upon finally falling asleep from exhaustion, the man awoke screaming, then died. Autopsy results revealed that they had not died because of heart failure, they had simply died. It was this lack of cause that intrigued Craven so much. Medical authorities have since called the phenomena Asian Death Syndrome, a variant of Sudden Unexpected Death Syndrome (SUDS) and Brugada Syndrome.
