Once more, I was invited to take part in a theme for the Rupert Pupkin Speaks blog. This time, it was on our personal "Film Discoveries of 2016." The films had to be released before the year 2000, and I chose six films that I had either put off for far too long or had never run into before in my constant cinematic travels until last year. I also added a seventh film that I marked as a "Film RE-Discovery of 2016." Follow the link to read my list...

In between bouts of pain today, I managed to actually knock out a written piece. And it is probably the only time you going to see me defend a Trump (though not the one that would most surprise you). A piece about lines that should not be crossed, no matter our beliefs, and where we all need to start reining it in a bit.

Read "Out of Bounds Is Always Out of Bounds" on The Cinema 4 Pylon at http://cinema4pylon.blogspot.com/2017/01/out-of-bounds-is-always-out-of-bounds.html

So, after posting articles and other junk on my various blogs for 31 straight days during the Countdown to Halloween, I took the last couple of weeks off to prevent myself from burning out altogether. Plus, like most of the country, I got caught up in other b.s. (You know what it is.)

Finally, here is the third and final part of The Monster's on the Loose!!! tribute to the werewolves of my youth: "Non-Chaney, Pt. 3: Were-Rik? There... There Rik!" on The Cinema 4 Pylon at http://bit.ly/2f7G6PS.

If you ever thought werewolves were just a frivolous fantasy thing, then you never met me...

Part 2 of my piece on the werewolves in my youth, which leads to an intriguing research mystery in my later years.

Read "Non-Chaney, Pt. 2: Werewolves Along the Wall" on The Cinema 4 Pylon at http://bit.ly/2f6fgsN.

This one takes a plot turn worthy of From Dusk Till Dawn... only with the monsters at the front half...

Track #12 of my Halloween mixtape is The Vampire Pt. 1 by T. Valentine (2012). Hear and read about this utterly confounding track on the Pylon at http://bit.ly/2f4ARlb.

And check out the pair of extra performances I have added to the post from the band backing up T. Valentine, a New York blues outfit named Daddy Long Legs.

Track #11 of my Halloween mixtape is the ultra creepy and sick “Cemetery Girls” by Barnes & Barnes (1980). Hear and read about it on the Pylon at http://bit.ly/2f7YsjB. If... you... dare!!!
