Just a few tidbits before we get to all the metal stuff that happened this week. Movies About Girls episode #173 will be live tomorrow at 3:00 PM ET. Make sure you don’t miss a minute of our shenanigans over at our Youtube chanel. I’ve also got a lot going on over at horror/cult movie blog, Destroy the Brain, and even more cool stuff coming in September and beyond. I can’t give you any details right now, but I can promise that you’re going to dig it. So stay tuned.
Lastly, I’ll be off at Bumbershoot all weekend so, posts will be slowish. Enjoy your Labor Day weekend and don’t forget to come back alive.
