Hello, October. Nice to see ya. What’s it been? A year? OK, Boils and Ghouls, grab your favorite gardening implement or kitchen utensil and sharpen up those blades, because we’re celebrating the Hallowe’en season by kicking off a three week tribute to Stalk ‘n’ SlashCinema before polishing off the month with another batch of Midnight Spookshow ads. Stay tuned, we’ll be right *thwack*.

School’s Back In, and so, I Am Outta Here!

For those unfamiliar with my routine, here’s the dope: Every year since I started face-planting on my keyboard and posting the resulting gibberish, I’ve taken the month of September off; a sabbatical, if you will, to let my nose heal up properly before hammering away again for the rest of the year.  But, before I go, I will leave you all with a couple of clues of what’s coming up when we return in October.

That’s right! Hallowe’en time, Boils and Ghouls! And so, time to finally migrate this Stalk-n-Slash retrospective over from the old site with new and improved scans and a few more surprises splattered around. Until then, folks. Don’t worry. I’ll be right back. *thwack*

Announcements :: For the Love of Film Noir All Over Again!

FTLOF - Film Noir 01Reduced Size with Titles

 
Alas, that beautiful banner is from a long extinct Blogathon. However, for most of March Scenes from the Morgue will be heading down the rain-soaked streets and neon-drenched back alleys of Noirville again. And though we will be rehashing all the material originally published at the old site for the very same For the Love of Film Noir fund drive from 2011, we’ll also be scattering around a lot of new stuff as well. Also of note, we’ll be posting them in chronological order to show how the genre evolved and progressed from the 1940’s through the late ’50s. So, grab your gasser, make all the wrong choices, watch helplessly as all your best-laid plans disintegrate from the inside out, fall for the wrong guy or gal, and then try not to get stabbed in the back or framed-up for any murders, meaning, peruse at your own risk! Stay down and stay tuned, folks!
 

Time to Break Out those Glasses!

That’s right, folks. For the whole month of November, the Morgue is donning our cardboard frames and gels and going 3-D! Our first batch of Stereo-Scopic ads will be posted in the next couple of days. Some we posted at the old blog, sure, but this time the content will be all inclusive and in chronological order as I find ’em in groups of — what else? — three as we trace this cinematic phenomenon through the mid-1950’s, where it flashed big and bright but burnt out all too quickly. Stay tuned, Boils and Ghouls!

I Shall Return…

For those unfamiliar with my routine, here’s the dope: Every year since I started face-planting on my keyboard and posting the resulting gibberish, I’ve taken the month of September off, a sabbatical if you will, to let my nose heal up properly before hammering away again for the rest of the year. And a quick check of the calendar shows it’s time to sign off, then. But, before I go, I will leave you all with a couple of clues of what’s coming up in October and November when I get back.
 

Coming Halloween Week, October, 2012

 

Coming November, 2012

 

Until then, via con queso Boils and Ghouls.

 

Attention Morgue Visitors…

Apparently, WordPress has implemented a new feature, something called the Infinity Scroll, and so, this site now functions like Tumblr, meaning every damned post posted will show up and load on one page and one page only. One. All of them. One page. Yep. One page. And in their vast and infinite wisdom, the powers that be at WordPress do not give you the option to disable this feature. Nice.

So, apologies to all on the obscene load times encountered. There’s nothing I can do, really. This development has me bummed to no end. Thought I really had something here. An ideal venue for displaying these treasures. I was wrong. As I dug into it, there are certain things you can do to work around this, but that would require finding a new theme so I can apply the proper widgets. I dug around for awhile, and the only other themes I even remotely liked don’t allow the kind of widget I’d need.

Well, shit.

For the meantime, I will probably keep posting. Hopefully, WordPress will come to their senses. I doubt it. It’s a handheld, mobile world now. And this Infinity Scroll works better for that format.

Whatever. Fine. I’ll deal with it. But.

Again. Shit.
