Countdown To Halloween Blog Post No. BlackJack

Tim and I just got done pre-recording some of the shows we will be missing next week when we are in the Twin Cities preparing for the Jandek concert, so I have just done 7 hours of radio. Phew! So today's blog post may be short and sweet, but it is an important one. This time of year we will at some point talk about the importance of Tobe Hooper's original film, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. When we do talk about it, inevitably we remind folks not to waste their time with the remakes, just stick to the original. And so with this blog post I am doing everything in my power to give you the opportunity to see the original movie. This is truly frightening, so if you are not up for a good scare, or two or ten, then you should skip this. But if you are ready, then turn off the lights and sit back and enjoy. After you watch it, feel free to ask Shyboy Tim to do his Franklin imitation!

A few years back I did a post comparing the set locations of Texas Chainsaw Massacre with what it looks like today. It is pretty cool to see what has become of the old family digs. You can find that post here.
