Death of a Blog

Today is the last day that Bean will write on his infamous Bean's Blog. It reminds me of the last day that KNAC was on the air here in Los Angeles. The station went off the air in 1995 and on its final day, was DJ'd by Lars and James from Metallica with the final song being Fade to Black. I clearly remember this because my cousin and I stayed home from school and taped the entire show. The ending of Bean's blog, I think will remain with its readers as the final KNAC show has stayed with me. As with the Fade to Black being the appropriate finish to KNAC, Tater-Tot walking away from the camera was the perfect way to end the blog. Kudos to a guy who didn't have to bring his personal life to us; to someone who wrote on a daily basis and if he couldn't would provide pictures in place of words. Kudos bean as we fade to black

FADE TO BLACK- Metallica

Life it seems, will fade away
Drifting further everyday
Getting lost within myself
Nothing matters no one else
I have lost the will to live
Simply nothing more to give
There is nothing more for me
Need the end to set me free

Things not what they used to be
Missing one inside of me
Deathly lost this can't be real
Emptiness is filling me
To the point of agony
Growing darkness taking dawn
I was me, but now he's gone

No one but me can save myself, but it's too late
Now I can think, think why I should even try

Yesterday seems as though it never existed
Death greets me warm, now I will just say goodbye

A secret crush

There was a very funny segment on the Kevin and Bean show today. What cartoon character would you bang? When I heard about that I had to call in and reveal a secret crush I have had for a long time.

My secret cartoon crush has been April O' Neil from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. She was the freaky news reporter in a hot one piece yellow jumpsuit with the zipper zipped just enough down...oooooooh.....She was way hot. Hotter than any freakin news reporter out there right now...except for Lisa Joyner. And with Halloween coming up, I'm thinking about buying the wifey a yellow jumpsuit and a camera.

if you make a comment, please make a comment on those Cartoon characters you had a crush on...It will be a funny topic to look back on.

Ed Gein

Wow...245 people have viewed my profile..I think a month ago it was 37.

I promised you a story of Ed Gein and well here it is..I typed it up this morning just for you..enjoy..

Ed Gein (1906-1984) was a lonely Wisconsin farmer who lived alone and was very fond of his Mother. Ed had a sick perverted mind and at the age of ten, and an orgasmic experience when he witnessed his Mom and Dad slaughtering one of their farm animals. He was later caught masturbating in his bathtub to which his Mother decided throwing scalding hot water on him would stop him. She then proceeded to grab his junk and call them the curse of men.

His Mom, Dad, and Brother all died within a 5 year span. Soon after this, women in neighboring cities started disappearing. When Bernice Worden, a store clerk disappeared, police started an investigation which led them to Gein's farm. There the police found Worden's body hanging upside down in a shed. Her head decapitated and her body split from vagina to the neck.
Upon searching Gein's house, the police came across severed heads on bedposts, a necklace made of human lips, a woman's body outfit made out of a skinned female which included her breasts and vajay-jay. Human skulls were cut in half to make soup bowls, a human hear in a saucepan on the stove, and a human face made out of another humans skin.

In the end, Gein was convicted of killing two women but had admitted to digging up many women who resembled his mother. He was sent to a mental institution where he died in 1984 from cancer.

Some movies inspired by Gein include, Psycho, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Deranged,Silence of the Lambs, and House of 1000 corpses.

Here it is...Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning

A little background...I love horror movies that deal and or have events that can happen in real life...

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (TCM from here on out): The Beginning was a gore fest from beginning to end. I kid you not in the first 5 minutes of the film, the owner of the meat packing company gets a hammer to his face....Did I mention it was a close up shot?

This movie is the prequal to the TCM that came out around 3-4 years ago. It shows about a family who lives in a small Texas town where the meat packing company, the last revenue generating facility in the city has closed down due to health reasons. Their town is also starting to be overrun by hippie kids and bikers which also pisses them off.


Sheriff Hoyt: You remember him as the sheriff from TCM from 3-4 years ago. Was made a star by his dark sadistic humor which people absolutely loved. Well...he wasn't actually a sheriff...He was just a hungry old korean war veteran who killed the last sheriff in the city stole his clothes, drank his blood, and presumed his identity.

Momma: I'm not sure if she was Sheriff Hoyt's Mom but that's what he called her. They looked the same age...She was pretty much against what Leatherface and the Sheriff were doing but soon started going along with it. She even cooks them soup out of human remains.

The Uncle: He was the old man with no legs in the first TCM. Well he was also against the Sheriff's and Leatherface actions but he did not want to go against them either. This movie showed how he lost his legs. Starting out as a tow truck driver for the Sheriff, he was just an old man doing what he was told. A biker shots the Uncle in his leg. Having no medicine, the Uncle is suffering for part of the movie...Good ol' Sheriff took care of that and had Leatherface chop his leg off with a chainsaw. I started laughing at this part as the Sheriff said, "Look at that...you did a messy job...his legs are all uneven now...Chop off his other leg", which Leatherface did...There was nothing wrong with his other leg!!! It was just uneven.

Leatherface: Turns out this guy was abandonded as a child because he was really ugly. Momma found him while she was digging in the trash and took him home with her. While growing up he used to mutilate animals and soon became a worker at the meat packing company. When that closed down he still had the urge to kill and with the Sheriff's help, started killing off hippies and bikers. Leatherface didn't use a chainsaw for most of the movie. The first time he used it was when he threw a biker on top of it and turned the chainsaw on while the sheriff held the biker on top of the chainsaw! Awesome and gruesome....From here on out, the chainsaw was his weapon of choice.

In the movie 4 late teens of legal age (2 guys, 2 girls) were traveling because the two guys were brothers and were to be shipped off to Vietnam together. The younger of the two was going to run off into Mexico as he was scared to go to war. He started burning his report to duty card but his older brother saw and was like WTF? A biker girl started chasing the teens and the teens, not paying attention hit a cow in the road which caused them to flip. The biker was going to rob them when the Sheriff came and blew the bikers brains away and took 3 of the 4 teens, as well as the dead biker back to the hell house where he had his way with them...especially the girls..There were beatings, mutilations, torture, and killing that pursuded. Finger nails were pulled off, faces removed, human soup, blood drinking...you name it and it was in this Horror Flick of the Year...I won't give out the ending or in between parts but I give it two severed thumbs up.

As i mentioned this movie was really graphic. From close ups of Leatherface peeling the skin off of arms and a face to the beatings him and the Sheriff dished out. My wife was sickened by the sights and had to excuse herself for a few minutes. I loved the ending which I will not spoil for you but it is pretty eerie and leaves you saying...how can someone do that...

They say this is based off a true story which it is...Notice the words..based off...not every detail is word for word, action for action what happened. Either tonight or tomorrow I will give you the story of Ed Gein who if it wasn't for him we wouldn't of had movies such as TCM or Psycho...

Raul on the Kevin and Bean Show?

I was on the Kevin and Bean show today speaking about Bean's blog. I made a petition to keep Bean's Blog Alive about 2 months ago or so and it finally reached its goal of 100 signatures. To my surprise when I got home last night I saw an email from Bean asking if I can be on the air tommorrow which I quickly replied to with a yes. Around 6:15 I get a call from Lightning who is the producer of the show. He gets some info from me and I'm on hold waiting to be brought on the air. The queue arrives and I start speaking about the petition and I totally get chastised for creating it. Ralph and Kevin ask me a few questions pretty much asking why the hell did I do it for and finally ending the interview with an, "I'm going to kill you comment". It was a lot of fun but seriously sign the petition. It's a great blog with tons of information, awesome pictures, and Tater Tot Friday.
