I don't know, when I was a kid, I was so scared of ADS for horror movies, partially because my mom would try to shield them from me. Once at the drive in, they sandwiched a trailer for Suspiria between 2 Disney flicks, I only saw the first few seconds before my eyes were covered and I spent years imagining it to be far more horrific than it is. I think if maybe I had watched one or two, I wouldn't have grown up so afraid of them.
Actually, I did watch stuff like The Abominable Dr Phibes on TV as a very young kid, and lots of gory stuff like The Fly as a teenager, but for some reason I was always terrified of straight-up horror movies until I watched as an adult. I still don't like certain kinds of slasher movies just because it exploits a thing that could really happen and they are usually very misogynistic. But I think kids should be able to watch supernatural things like The Exorcist & The Shining, or monster movies. If they watch one and don't like it, fine, but if they've watched The Exorcist, I don't see why not.
I fucking love this marine layer, tricks!
I'm actually starting to look forward to Fall.

As long as we are on the topic of insanely hot women from the 60's, I caught Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice last night, which is mainly a lot of hippie free love shit that chickens out at the end, but it does give Natalie Wood an excuse to walk around in bikinis and lingerie and just look adorable in general.
If I had a time machine, I would go back and strike out with her so hard...
I will have to post a pic of my new little babie after I detail it. It was my dad's car. A 1991 Ford Tempo lolz. But it has less than 60k on it. Yeepee .... cr****
If you have read the anonymous posting of accusation hatred and destruction...defamation
etc...regarding me, here is the truth....I am not only a Christian minister, i am a prophetess to the
nation and God speaks to other nations as well through me. The anonymous heathen, pagan whatever
they are..have actually rented from me, and done all to stop my services and take over the seven
bedroom abandoned group home, I refurbished. i HAVE TRIED TO HELP AND THIS IS WHAT
THEY DO TO ME...TRY TO DESTROY MY LIFE MISSIONS...They have jailed me with the
police who are their friends, they seem to have there own secret police to arrest people for painting
rooms and lighting a candle and enoying religious freedom. Many people who stand up for their rights
have been arrested through the centuries. One man who writes these was boiling mice in my kitchen
and chanting to satan...why would he move in with me ( a christian minister)iunder the guise of....if he
is a satanist...he can be whatever he wants and so can I...but he disguised saying...oh its ok with me if
you are a christian and meet with God in your living room.
The other man I rented to ...a supposed computer geek, started playing loudly , I love satan songs,
while I began my worship.......so this is the real story...I am seeking goodwilled people, not folks
trying to takeover christian worship places and destroy peoples reputation as best they can
indiscreetly......We christians have rights...unfortunately these people are very hateful and portray me
as a bad person...they arrested Jesus Christ....everyone who is arrested is not a bad person.....these
people are clearly hateful and have taken over my rental....until court, now this poor man who lived
on South shore boulevard, asking me for help and a place to get himself back on his feet , has lied to
Clackamas County court filing a staking order saying I was praying in tongues and told him that he
must die....not Christian lingo...So.....this is the truth.....God says it is to be a refuge like an oasis for
people starting over......any people want to help me...I need help these people have beat me down
terribly, I am a good person and I love the Lord.....I trust good, true goodness will come back to me,
as I have goodwill.....the truth is now told. God bless you all, and I pray the US government would
allow Christian freedoms. [phone no. redacted], Rev. Margaret [redacted]...talk group available...civil
rights.....freedom of religion and freedom of speech...true goodness and works to bring a good quality
of life to our nation again. Please help me, I am an American. I have rooms to rent....I have made a
lovely abode. I am speaking to you Portland Oregon.
This gave me a good laugh: http://news.yahoo.com/bigfoot-hoaxer...121533221.html
The Shining did not scare my kids too much. Evelyn liked The Exorcist better (she liked when the demon/kid spoke Latin).
Jesus amy. no wonder your kids fear people.
They fear people because extroversion/introversion is mostly an inherited trait.
And because you show them movies of people hacking each other to bits.
There is actually very little hacking in either of those movies. If at all.
[Interviewer]: Part of your work here at Trinity has been working with priests involved in abuse, no?
[Father Groeschel]: A little bit, yes; but you know, in those cases, they have to leave. And some of them profoundly — profoundly — penitential, horrified. People have this picture in their minds of a person planning to — a psychopath. But that's not the case. Suppose you have a man having a nervous breakdown, and a youngster comes after him. A lot of the cases, the youngster — 14, 16, 18 — is the seducer.
[Interviewer]: Why would that be?
[Father Greoschel]: Well, it's not so hard to see — a kid looking for a father and didn't have his own — and they won't be planning to get into heavy-duty sex, but almost romantic, embracing, kissing, perhaps sleeping but not having intercourse or anything like that.
It's an understandable thing, and you know where you find it, among other clergy or important people; you look at teachers, attorneys, judges, social workers. Generally, if they get involved, it's heterosexually, and if it's a priest, he leaves and gets married — that's the usual thing — and gets a dispensation. A lot of priests leave quickly, get civilly married and then apply for the dispensation, which takes about three years.
But there are the relatively rare cases where a priest is involved in a homosexual way with a minor. I think the statistic I read recently in a secular psychology review was about 2%. Would that be true of other clergy? Would it be true of doctors, lawyers, coaches?
Here's this poor guy — [Penn State football coach Jerry] Sandusky — it went on for years. Interesting: Why didn't anyone say anything? Apparently, a number of kids knew about it and didn't break the ice. Well, you know, until recent years, people did not register in their minds that it was a crime. It was a moral failure, scandalous; but they didn't think of it in terms of legal things.
If you go back 10 or 15 years ago with different sexual difficulties — except for rape or violence — it was very rarely brought as a civil crime. Nobody thought of it that way. Sometimes statutory rape would be — but only if the girl pushed her case. Parents wouldn't touch it. People backed off, for years, on sexual cases. I'm not sure why.
I think perhaps part of the reason would be an embarrassment, that it brings the case out into the open, and the girl's name is there, or people will figure out what's there, or the youngster involved — you know, it's not put in the paper, but everybody knows; they're talking about it.
At this point, (when) any priest, any clergyman, any social worker, any teacher, any responsible person in society would become involved in a single sexual act — not necessarily intercourse — they're done. And I'm inclined to think, on their first offense, they should not go to jail because their intention was not committing a crime.
He seems awfully forgiving of child molesters and rapists.
