A Nightmare On Elm Street (1984) – Show Notes

INTRO:

Oh hi!

That’s right your honor. I was on Elm street just trying to sell my new invention: The Finger Knife Glove when all these parents start coming at me.

What’s that your honor? You like my ugly sweater. Well thank you..uh I like your robe.

Anywho, you see my Finger Knife Glove is going to revolutionize the cutlery industry. It’s going to do for the kitchen… what indoor plumbing did for shitting.

oh…and if that doesn’t excite your honor and the jury, I have a great idea for some Scissor Hands.

What’s that? Not guilty. Well thank you your honor.

Chow Chow Chow!

Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) – Like a giant pimple on your forehead forever captured on celluloid. For Pete’s sake Nancy, pop that thing!

SHOW NOTES:

 

That places looks like tetanus (Tet-Anus)

Lamb in the halls..metaphorical dude! RUN

You can see through here nightgown. Probably on purpose.

This is a pretty complicated shot with all the shadows and smoke? Right? Maybe. Who is the CinnamonTographer?

This music and effects are abrasive. Intentionally. I wonder if they used one of them horror music homemade dealies.

Run girl…run!

Why is it always in the boiler room? Perhaps they will tell us more about the boiler room later in the movie?

Freddie pops up with laser shot noises. pew pew pew

It was just a dream mamma!

Mamma is getting some and by some I mean some of that old man spaghetti.

The Freddie song! 1-2…Freddie’s coming for you….3-4… shhh…I’m trying to see if I can remember it from my childhood! 3-4 Better lock the door. 5-6 Crucifix.  7-8 Something something about don’t be late. 9-10 Freddie’s creeping again. 11-12 You’re out of bed? Twelve…belve…shit….

OGR 805 – Johnny (Glen) is driving an old convertible…and man can he hop!

gif by Scott Johnson

“I had a hard on when I woke up this morning.” Thanks Glenn…so does 90% of the male population in high school…give that man a boner prize.

Up yours with a toilet what?!?

“Tell yourself it’s just a dream and you wake up.” Works for Depp. So not true.

WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN YOU ARE HAVING A NIGHTMARE? I don’t dream bitches. I killed the sandman a long time ago. NEVER SLEEP!

Got a cousin who lives near the airport…cousin Barry.

When your jambox Foley work is subpar. You are BUSTED. Also, Glen’s mom is the second clueless parent so far. Tina’s mom being the first.

Creepy music makes a creepy story creepy. finger-knives! screee

Nike Sweater Vest pull over…you deserve to die Johnny ‘Glen’ Depp

Kittie Kittie. Chow Chow Chow. (was that a thing? I think I remember a commercial.) Chow Mix?

Hey Rod. You are a dick…and did you forgot to button your shirt up buddy. Nobody wants to see your happy trail.

A sleepover date? Pretty sure that is not a thing. I guess we got away with it from time to time. Did you guys?

Trope…girls gotta stick up for one another…especially when she is dating a creep…always cramps the good guys style.

Ahhh…listening to others have sex…best time. Have you ever had to listen to sex. What did you do?

I guess Tina wanted to wander down Rod’s happy trail after all. TINA MUST DIE.

Nice effect! What a magic trick! Freddie pushing through and then it’s solid.

I think I will go outside in only my shirty-shirt when someone whisper yells my name.

eeek! Garbage pale kids are coming for you? or Oscar the grouch? All we have are those plastic roller trash cans now. I miss the old noisy aluminum cans of my childhood. You know the ones…the ones that were booby traps for late night burglars to bumble over…or possibly you if you are trying to sneak away.

This is god? Your right glove? what do you call left hand. The left hand of god? The lefty. The other hand. Not god?

What’s your body made of? Maggots and Freon?

Do not bring Freddie back with you….do not do it…it sounds like a good plan…but no.

Tidy Whitties on an Italian?

Oh this is getting bloody Tina. No Tina…not on the walls!

Dad is the police chief.

I see why Nancy is so screwed up now. Her mom is an alcoholic and her dad is the Sgt.

Did we ever do that? Show dead arms hanging off gurneys on TV? Maybe in the 70s…but surely not in the 80s!

We liked big buttoned collars in the 80s. The more drunk you are…the bigger buttons you need.

Jump Scare. Rod loves to surprise people. He’s the real villain here.

Maybe if Barry buttoned his shirt once in a while we wouldn’t have to arrest him.

“Look a switchblade!” – Cop One says with surprise.

Nancy don’t wanna sleep! Nancy sleep.

“Where’s your pass! Screw your pass!” – Breaking the law!

Tina’s back…in a body bag! That is a lot of blood in that body bag BTW

It says NO STUDENTS ALLOWED Nancy! Roaming the halls with no pass as well. You are so going to get at least 2 demerits. Did you get demerits in school? If you got 10…that was a paddling.

Freddie consists of green mucus and maggots. mmm.

eeeek! It was all a nightmare. Also, my teacher is the hippie medium from Insidious I believe. She can’t get out of the horror racket. It chewed her up.

Freddie gave Nancy a hickey? Nope…it’s a burn.

Hate those inflatable bath pillows.  Don’t fall asleep in the tub…it happens all the time…well why did you give me this ugly bath pillow if you didn’t want me to sleep.

“Don’t fall asleep in the tub….but here is a pillow. A gross inflatable fungus ridden pillow…NOW DON’T FALL ASLEEP!”

Mom is going to turn down my bed for me….maybe if you had of turned dad down Dad once in a while I wouldn’t have to exist.

Let’s take some Stay Awake and watch some scary movies to avoid nightmares. Thumbs Up!

Nancy…what is that knot on your forehead? Zit cream stat!

Oh god I look 20 years old…like that is a bad thing. I no longer like Nancy.

Johnny Depp and Nancy are teeth twins.

You stay awake (guard) while I nap. WHAT, YOU FELL ASLEEP!

5th precinct sucks.

1-2…I’m watching you.

you get to star most of the movie in a body bag Tina. Sorry about your luck.

Those stepping into the paint buckets full of glue and oatmeal on the steps is bad effects. I get what they were going for. It failed. Good try though

No my favorite Pillow!!! Feathers are everywhere!

Glen…you had one job…

Mom has all the sexy lingerie. Is she a stay at home prostitute?

Glen done fell asleep on the stoop. You just know it…he’s like a narcoleptic. Wasn’t that a thing in Dream Warriors? Part 3?

“We have reason to believe….” – Glenn….do you think you are a cop? Why are you talking like that son.

Mom has a plan. A very bad plan. It probably involves Vodka.

Dad knows more than he is saying. Spit it out dad!

Katja Sleep Study. This ought to go over well.

They put that probe right on Nancy’s forehead pimple.

Dr. Roger Rabbit. Puhhhlease Freddy…

Look what I got! I got his hat…I hope his head is cold in scary dream world. Dick.

It’s real mom…touch it….PSYKE! NOPE…YOU CAN’T TOUCH IT!

Fred Krueger…it’s in the hat mom…and so are his old gross man hairs..

Nancy is going gray

Back when you could back hand your kids and not go to jail.

Noooo! Not the booze Nancy!. It’s ok…I have more…everywhere in the house apparently.

Dream Skills…I got mad dream skills.

Rules! Will they use them?

Glen: You ever read about the Balinese way of dreaming?
Nancy: No.
Glen: They got a whole system they call “dream skills”. So, if you have a nightmare, for instance like falling, right?
Nancy: Yeah.
Glen: Instead of screaming and getting nuts, you say, okay, I’m gonna make up my mind that I fall into a magic world where I can get something special, like a poem or song. They get all their art literature from dreams. Just wake up and write it down. Dream skills.
Nancy: And what if they meet a monster in their dream? Then what?
Glen: They turn their back on it. Takes away its energy, and it disappears.
Nancy: What happens if they don’t do that?
Glen: I guess those people don’t wake up to tell what happens.

Dream Skills. I got booby trap skills!

Bars on the windows…mom works fast. I mean like in a few hours she barred that whole place up.

Even put bars on the door window…like you could crawl through that.

That moment when mom asks you to go to the cellar with her.

A filthy child murderer.  The Lawyers got fat and the judges got famous.

YOU KEPT HIS KNIVES! YOU KEPT HIS KNIVES! Don’t worry…mommy killed him.

Cut off shirts! ahhhh yeah! Thanks for the abs Glen.

Prisoner of Zendor? Zendar? Prisoner of Zenda!

7th Day of no sleep…11 is the record. -Nancy Says…well you got a timeline on your hands.

Whatever you do…Don’t Fall Asleep… CUT…oh yeah…that is so going in the trailer.

Miss Nude America…is that his mom or his Grandma?

Where the hell did Nancy have that Coffee Pot? it’s freaking plugged in and brewed!

No way is that Johnny Depp’s dad.

“You know what I think…I think that girl is a lunatic.” Glen’s Dad

Nancy done took so many pills she is a free bleeder. or is it the coffee.

How much Vodka does mom have stashed. I see where Nancy learned to hide beverages now.

Glenn’s dad is kind of a dick…and he is wearing some kind of cult necklace pendent.

Fred has a phone? Uh…yes…Hello…this is Fred.

Do you remember the DJ Jazzy Jeff and Fresh Prince. Nightmare on my street?

 

Never. Ever. Ever. Answer a phone that is ripped out of the wall.

That phone has a tongue and it wants to lick you.

That poor phone…

Locked! Locked! Locked!

Who sleeps with a TV on their crotch?

Glenn got surcked into a bed hole.

That is a lot of blood.. Glenn is made of blood. like a whole trash can full. maybe 2.

Why did you call an ambulance? Haha…you don’t need a stretcher…you need a mop.

Hey papa…wave papa…hey papa.

How does Nancy know 20 minutes is the timeline? RULE

Is that a lifesaver? Butterscotch I hope?

Soooo…in 20 minutes time…she macgyvered booby traps…comforted mom.. 10 minutes…. fell asleep…found fred and return.

What is in that ambulance? that they need a siren. Blood for the bloodbank?

That cellar has everything. Dogs playing poker. Freddie’s knife glove. oooh…Vodka! Freddie’s Basement.

In the afterlife.. Fred collects souls

Everybody labels their stuff in this movie. Fred’s Hat. Glenn’s Headphones. Hall Monitor!

You my bitch now Freddie!!

Nancy “Home Aloned” Freddie

“Get my dad asshole!” – Nancy

Clueless parents…Clueless cops…

I would love to see all the Freddie falls.

“Daddy I did it!”

Burning foot prints…that is bad ass.

how many bed deaths are there?

What…you just saw your ex-wife get sucked into the abyss and you are going to leave your daughter in that room?

Wait…did she beat Freddie or did he beat her? Is Nancy dead?

I forgot about this ending! Is she still dreaming! Will I have to watch Part 2 to know?

Nightmare done.

A Simple Misunderstanding On Elm

 

Fred was third generation door to door salesman. His job had taken him to many streets in this great country but none quite like Elm. Perhaps, one day he could settle down. Open a small hardware store. Then ‘THEY’ could come to him instead of him dragging around a heavy bag of knives from house to house. No more traveling. No more dirty hotel rooms. No more doors slammed in his face. No, at his store, Fred could do the door slamming.

As he approached the first house he opened his bag to make sure he had brought ‘Big Boy.’ That is what he called the Quikut 2000. We know it today as the Ginsu knife. But in 1968 it was Quikut. Fred pulled the knife from it’s sheath and inspected it. He caught his eyes in the reflection of the blade.

Fred had great big ole saucer eyes. His mom called them “kind eyes.” Bobby Flincher called them “bug eyes.” “Fuck Flincher” Fred thought out loud.

He returned Big Boy to its place in the bag. “Everything has a place and everything in its place” he could hear his father say. A rule that had served Fred well over the years. Even if it had pissed him off as a child.

As Fred zipped his bag shut he felt a sharp sting in his knuckle. “Shit!” Fred unzipped the bag and pulled out a glove with knives attached to the fingers. He inspected the glove to make sure no damage had occurred to his baby.

His baby was an old leather work glove that Fred had riveted sheet metal and fishing knives to. The jury would recognize it as exhibit B.

Freddie, as his mom would something call him, pulled the glove down tight on his hand and wiggled the fingers. A smile began to appear on his face. “This baby here is the future of cutlery.” “I’m going to do for food prep what indoor plumbing did for shitting.” “Every Mom in America is going to be wearing one of these babies and chopping up onions, carrots, tomatoes…you name it…in record time. It’s going to be a revolution!”

Marge had been watching Fred from the pulled back curtain inside her home. She was currently on the phone with her husband, Lt. Thompson. “Hurry.” she said.

Digital Tools Advice

 

What are your thoughts on the move me towards digital tools in
cartooning, i.e. Wacom tablets etc.? Do you search tools yourself? If
so, do you have any recommendations for a starter tablet?

Thanks for your help,
Ray Hernandez

Greetings Ray,

It took me almost a year to transition to digital when I finally “went for it.”

I started on a Wacom Intuos. I used that for years. Then I moved onto the Cintiq.

I tried a whole bunch of ‘non-wacom’ tablets over the years. Including Surface Pro and Wacom Stylus on the iPad. None of them came close to what Wacom delivered.

Sound like I am selling Wacom yet? They should be giving me money!

The plunge into the Cintiq is a pretty sizeable sum. But it does give you the ability to draw right onto the screen! A very natural transition from paper to digital.

But I’ll be honest, I wish I still had my Intuos. It took a while for my brain to understand that I was drawing on one surface and my art was appearing on another.

When I moved onto the Cintiq I felt like my hand was always in the way of what I was seeing. I never realized how stupid and big my hand was!

The other thing about the Cintiq is that unless you get the stand-alone models you will limited in your portability. You are chained to the location where you set that thing up.

I have the 13HD and it is somewhat “portable” but I have cables hanging everywhere. You got 3 cables. A standalone power, an HDMI cable and a USB cable. You don’t realize what a pain in the butt it is until your laptop is dying and you have to find 2 plugins to keep drawing.

Now the Intuos. It has 1 cable…a USB and it fits nicely over most keyboard laptops. So you can either put it in your lap or place it over your laptop keyboard and use the express keys and stylus to navigate just about on your laptop.

One last thing. Go larger if you have the budget. The “small” of any of these tablets is always going to be too small and is just going to cause frustrations. The reason is this: If you have a 15″ screen on your computer and you get a 6″ tablet then you really get this disconnect in your head. Let’s say you want to draw a circle on screen that is 1 inch in diameter. Well, on the tablet you are going to be drawing a circle as small as .5 inch or less according to how much smaller your tablet is than your screen.

I hope that at least gives you some insight. Perhaps too much insight! If you have a more specific question just let me know and I’ll shoot it out to you.

Also, it just occurred to me that this might be of interest to other artists. Mind if I use your question and it’s answer on my website at briandunaway.com and/or comicscoasttocoast.com?

Mortal Kombat: Annihilation (1997) – Show Notes

 

INTRO:

Oh hi, and welcome to the Elder God Sanctum. We trust that you enjoyed your trip here in your  ball. We totally don’t think of you as hamsters.

Now, before we get started, there are a few rules:

Firstly, You get 3 questions per visit. That means you can ask 3 questions while you are here and any follow-up questions will need to be addressed in a subsequent visit.

Please be aware there is a cool down period for each visit. In other words you can’t just come in here and drop 3 questions, leave and come right back with 3 more questions.

Ain’t gonna happen.

Also, all disputes are handled through Mortal Kombat. So, like if your brother wants chicken for dinner but you want Pizza. Well, you got a Mortal Kombat on your hands.

Our reasoning is this: If you are dead… then you aren’t going to care about what’s for dinner. If your brother is eating chicken and you are dead…you are going to be like….whatever…I’m dead.

Now before you get upset and call us “unfair.” Us elder gods have rules as well.

Like, if you piss off 2 or more elder gods then we fold you up like a cheap dishrag and shove you up the butt of Motaro.

So, go ahead…ask your 3 questions and get back in your Habi-trail ball…err…transport ball…so we can get back to watching Scrubs.

MK: Annihilation (1997) – Like a really BAD interpretation of a really FUN video game. No wait…it’s not LIKE that…it IS that. Finish Me.

Show Notes:

giphy-13
gif by Scott Johnson

So far so good. Mortal Kombat Song…Good. Mortal Kombat Logo. good. 1st Film recap…good.

Bunch of monks in front of a green screen….not the worst thing that has ever happened.

Not sure if special effects bad…or trying to use stylized recreation of Mortal Kombat.

Mother has a dead tooth.

I have the power Khan.

This is Saturday morning TV Bad.

This is dumb as dirt…but is a pretty good representation of the video game.

“You hide behind a human?”

This is another one of them “The actors trusted that the scene they were filming was going to look good.”

You killed Cage! Ahhh hell nah! Pretty sure we are going to see a Zombie Cage.

Wonder if Khan failed out of Chiropractor School?

One Realm

Mother is resurrected…that gives us hope for Luke Cage.

The Elder Gods do not know.

6 Days before Annihilation.

Rayden has no powers in out world.

We are the only hope and we must act as a team. So we got to get past our differences.

Did we mention the team thing?

Need Jaxx!

We have harnessed the hot air to travel in our speed balls….

That is some Quake sounding electricity

I have no use for excuse!

We don’t walk…we flip or slide in Netherworld.

Oh wow…he knows our weakness. Do not underestimate the power of the human spirit! I got one of them!

The whole effects budget was spent on Katana’s Fan Blades…as it should be.

Sub Zero Wins!

That sure seems like a lot of effort to make a snow bridge when everybody has long jump skills.

Subzero and Scorpion is my favorite dynamic of all the characters…which ain’t saying much…but there it is.

Everybody knows Scorpion has the teleporting skill. You truly are a sucker if you didn’t see that coming.

Do we still say “Yeah. That is what I am talking about?”

Shah What?

Sonya Blade…crop top and shorts…great uniform

Why do droids need dreds? Dreds for Droids?

“Yeah..now what?”

Jaxx has a lot of questions and answers about the word “What”

is Sonya a chemist?

Ahh…the old self destruct upon death sequence.

Got to give it to Sonya and Jaxx for actually jumping away from an explosion.

ha! 2nd tier boss repeats 1st tier boss “no mercy” phrase.

Hey…2nd tier boss…you are dispensing judgment that you were dismissed from.

What is my Animality?

Look here apache warrior (Night Wolf) ….I don’t need you. ok…I need you.

Dream state! Time for the drugs.

Should have taken the slow way..probably involved a peace pipe and smoking instead of the back of an axe.

Is he Reptilian? spoiler!

Hi Jade. Perhaps you should keep that animal skin on…it’s snowing out here. Now let’s get it on!

Jade…a woman scorned.

Should have taken the slow way.

I am a bit of a Asian Martial Arts snob. I only enjoy watching Asians fight in the martial arts.

Thank you for the spit fluid. By the way…I would way prefer spit from a mouthful of water over a mucus filled snot spit.

Who’s Johnny? Jaxx say…he ask in that special way…Who Johnny, Jaxx say.

Sai Cam! Hey! You ain’t Katana!

ha! Now we are mud wrestling? Aight. But I do kind of enjoy the tire break remix song.

You released my dragon!

As always…you are granted 3 questions with the gods. Followed up by 2 questions of our own.

Jaxx likes Jades legs.

Rayden thinks Jaxx is sexy as well.

What an annoying power…screaming to destory.

These bad guys laugh too much.

It’s a trap.

Bad guys who want others to bow at his feet.

I always enjoyed Baraka in the game…here…he looks like a troll.

Sheeva and Motaro were kind of disappointing in this movie.

Yo, Forget your gods.

 

Your dad is an elder god?

Sha-Khan is my brother!

No matter how stupid this movie gets….I still get excited when I hear them say something from the game…like “Finish Him”

Something to fight for!

Do they ever answer why they keep letting the good guys live? What we the benefit of letting them live?

This movie is a family affair. Mother’s against mother. Brother against Brother. Brother against Centaur.

If you are going to build a team. you have to have conflict between the characters in the team. Johnny Cage was good at that. But they killed him in the first 5 minutes. The same reason TMNT are always at odds. Because when they finally cast off conflict they are able to win.

haha…what the hell is Liu Kang?

This is perhaps the worstest CG in a movie from it’s time period

Shao-Kahn is portrayed as a buffoon through most of the movie. Not much of a finale.

Like folding up a god. it’s weird.

High Five Jax!

Fire and Water have restored Rayden? That’s 2 elements.
