SOUTHERN MANTIS ( as performed by Lo Meng, first dude on the right)


So far, I totally love this M.A.N.T.I.S. show. I sort of half watched it when it was on in 94/95. It is totally dumb. It started off a lot more cool, as this one dude on Amazon says:

I distinctly remember taping the pilot for M.A.N.T.I.S. and watching
it over and over. Unfortunately, the series was nowhere near as good.

Why? The pilot was extremely topical. Our hero was crippled by an rogue
police sniper using illegal ammunition during the post-Rodney King verdict L.A. riots. He was shot by a racist white cop simply because he was a black man in the "wrong" part of town. This was typical of the pilot, which never held back from confronting racism.

Also, our hero was much more limited in his abilities during the pilot,
but his origin and powers were retconned for the series. Not cool!

I would purchase the pilot in a heartbeat and show it to my children,
but I can't recommend watching a single episode of the series.

But I still like the other episodes I've seen. The costume gets better in the series (the pilot has the light-up eyes one). I'm still looking for copies for the store. But if you enjoy dumb entertainment, eat this up. I've only watched the first three episodes so far so I'll get back to you if it sucks. So far it is really silly, really pro-black and really simply enjoyable, even without all the overt political stuff the pilot had.

And just because I know ben will mention Mantis style:

Countess Bathory

I just read about Jorge Grau's movie the Legend of Blood Castle coming out on DVD...totally f'n amazzzing. It should be out on May 19th. Grau did one of my favoritest movies of all time, the Living Dead at Manchester Morgue. Now there are only 29 more movies by him to be released.

But on top of that this site showed up when I was looking for it. It has an insane amount of great scans of movie posters:
All the scans are giant from what I can tell. Insane, I tell you.

I can't do anything.

And because their appearance on Revolver doesn't include Peter Cook, I need as much X-ray Spex as I can get:

Revolver (Peter Cook=Genius?)

Thanks to yesterday's post I can't get enough of Revolver:

Meanwhile I have to settle for this:
