Ba dum dum! That's the joke folks! Oh well, anybody coming to this blog looking for subtle humor must not have been here before. May 15th is the feast day for St. Isidore (who looks strikingly like John Saxon in this portrait) so be sure to say a prayer for farmers, day laborers, Madrid, and the United States National Rural Life Conference.

More kind words? Please... don't... stop!

CB, thanks for dropping by. I hope you found that Edward Gorey book you were looking for.

I'm adding you to my catablogue - brilliantly funny!

EegahInc said...

Thanks for dropping by LarryD. Let me know if you've got a favorite bad movie and I'll try and work it in.

LarryD said...

The last bad movie I watched was "Transformers" - well, actually, I ripped it out of the DVD player about 45 minutes it. Terrible! Not quite a "B" movie, unless you consider "B" to stand for "Baaaaaaaaaaaaaddddddd"!

EegahInc, I don't know if you like to give away trade secrets, but how do you get those screen shots and add the talking balloons?

Also, just a mere suggestion, mind you, I'm wondering if you'd mind adding the names of the movies to the Outtakes posts to help further our B-movie educations.

larryd, unfortunately (or fortunately now that I think about it) Transformers is a little over budget for this place. I believe the most expensive movie I've reviewed has been Dracula 2000.

deej, no trade secrets here. I use VirtualDubMod, a freeware program for editing a number of video formats including the VOB files on a DVD. It's great for screen caps because you can do a frame by frame advance through the movie. Then I just insert the images in a Word document and add the balloons using one of Word's built-in tools. (There are commercial programs designed specifically to create cartoon strips that are more flexible, but I have Word though my office, so why spend the money?) From there, I use whatever freeware image program I have open at the time to capture the individual panels and save them to JPGs. It's pretty quick once you get used to the steps involved.

I'll try to remember to add movie titles. Both this one and the previous Outtakes were taken from Prisoners of the Lost Universe starring BSG's Richard Hatch. Watch at your own risk.

Now that's comedy. Thanks for the laugh.

cure, my pleasure, but I have to admit it's hard to go wrong when you start with pictures of John Saxon wearing a big s***-eating grin on his face.
