Rawry feels left out


Rawry felt left out by yesterday's 31 Days of Rawr Anagrams, so I said he could do a list too.  These are what he came up with:


#5  Stony Thyroid Wayfarer - Know what's not so great in banana pudding? Stony Thyroid Vanilla Wayfarers

#4  Testy Hoary Dwarf Irony - Not sure if Dwarf Irony means a small amount of irony or if it dwarfs regular irony

#3  Showy Randy Fairy Otter - This sounds like an Ohio State Fair 4-H project run amok.

#2  Rowdy Stony Fairy Heart - Oh, the complicated paradox of the heart of a fairy - rowdy, yet stony, too.  Will anyone tame her?

and the number one Anagram for "Thirty-one Days of RAWRY" is.....

#1  Horny Tasty Rowed Fairy - our third "fairy" entry (I think we're learning something about Rawry), and a horny tasty fairy at that! I asked Rawry what the "rowed" meant and he made this obscene cowboy gesture, which just goes to show you that A) Rawry can't spell very well and B) hide your women, children and fairies when Rawry's out and about - for soon he'll be comin' down your rowed!

Anagram Warr


#16  Hairy Dotty Forewarns - I'm not sure how many friends "Hairy Dotty" has, but when she speaks, you damn-well better listen!

#15  Shitty Donor Wayfarer - I'm pretty sure this guy has dated one (or more) of my Exes; what that says about me I don't know.

#14  Shanty Firewood Tarry - What this hotel needs is a shanty firewood tarry-cloth robe!

#11 (tie)  Warrantied Frothy Soy     Eastward Frothy Irony        Newsy Frothy Radiator - I couldn't decide between these three, but Frothy Irony would make a great drink name.

#10  Thy Frontier Roadways  - Who suddenly got a mad hunger to play the ol' Oregon Trail computer game?

9  Showy Retardation Fry - Speakin' of mad hunger, I'd think twice before chowing down on these dudes, ketchup or not.

#8  Often Worthy Disarray - If this was an inner-city home it would be often worthy disarray-ray.

#7  Hooray Tawny Drifters - I sure hope that's not the AFLAC Duck, or I ain't believin' in nothin' no more!

#6  Shadowy Fairy Torrent - A ballet fairy and a waterfall - is there anything more sinister?

#3 (tie)  Nifty Arrowhead  Story    Tiny Frosty Arrowhead       Forty Tiny Arrowheads - All three of these conjure short-story ideas. If only I wasn't so lazy I'd write them!

#2  Throaty Fairy Wonders - Would make the best gay band name ever.

and the number one Anagram of Thirty-One Days of Rawr! is .....

#1  Swarthy Fiery Tornado - This looks like a public service ad for acid reflux disease: "This is your intestine.....this is your intestine after Taco Bell.....any questions?"

(or Honey Rip, if you prefer)

Vampires, Ghosts and Zombies

[Back in 2005 I put out the call for scary-movie lists and my friend Ajax (who's since passed) sent me not one but three lists.  To honor him I thought I would reprint his lists. The links all go to Amazon.com, and if you buy anything they send me a shiny nickel.  -Hyperion]

7. Blade
4. Nosferatu (1922)

Hyperion's note: there is one Vampire movie (which I will be reviewing next week) that I think would have topped Ajax's list if he'd lived long enough to see it. I would have paid money to see Twilight with him, just to witness his anguish. 

9. Ghost
4. Topper

Hyperion's Note - I wasn't allowed to see Ghostbusters or Beetlejuice as a kid, and to this day I have honored that parental decree


3. Friday the 13th, part II and onwards

Hyperion's Note: Don't hate, but I just don't get the appeal of Zombies.  Maybe one day I'll learn.

Dance with the Devil


The Best Movie "Devils" Ever

#10 Peter Stormare (CONSTANTINE) – A tiny part, but one played with chilling effectiveness. 

#9 Viggo Mortensen (PROPHECY) – I have to take Ajax’s word for this, which is why he only goes here.  If I saw the movie I might rank him higher. 

#8 Tim Curry (LEGEND) – The only good thing about this movie

#7 Max Von Sydow (NEEDFUL THINGS) – I was going to go with Randal Flagg from THE STAND, but Sydow just creeps me out. [This is actually Sydow from a different movie, but I thought it more appropriate]

#6 Walter Huston (THE DEVIL AND DANIEL WEBSTER) – Okay, Scratch isn’t your typical devil, but I kind of like this more innocent take. 

#5 Devil-Flanders and Satan from SOUTH PARK – Of course leave it to animation to get it right. I especially love Satan in SOUTH PARK the movie. How often do you feel sorry for the guy? 

#4 Gabriel Byrne (END OF DAYS) – I love Love LOVE that scene in the restaurant. right after Byrne is possessed. (Here's an edited version in another language; redacted boobies make Rawry cry.  I wish they would go back and make the movie again, but just about Byrne. This is such an awesome performance.)

#3 Jack Nicholson (THE WITCHES OF EASTWICK) – Do you have time for a quote from Jack?
“Do you think God knew what He was doing when He created woman? Huh? No shit. I really wanna know. Or do you think it was another one of His minor mistakes like tidal waves, earthquakes, FLOODS? You think women are like that? S'matter? You don't think God makes mistakes? Of course He does. We ALL make mistakes. Of course, when WE make mistakes they call it evil. When GOD makes mistakes, they call it... nature. So whaddya think? Women... a mistake... or DID HE DO IT TO US ON PURPOSE?”

#2 Al Pacino (THE DEVIL’S ADVOCATE) – Again, how much do I love the restaurant scene? I like how (at least for awhile), Pacino underplays his John Milton. Also that red-headed daughter? Why can’t she be naked in every movie? (This should be a law)

and the number one appearance of Lucifer in art.....

#1 Robert DeNiro (ANGEL HEART) – This movie scared the hell out of me, not the least of which was DeNiro’s Louie Cipher (Lisa Bonet scared me too). I would have loved to seen an entire movie on DeNiro here. Powerful stuff.

Honorable Mention: Bill Cosby (THE DEVIL AND MAX GOULD) and George Burns (O GOD, YOU DEVIL) – Neither movie or performance is what you’d call good, but they get points for playing against type (more on that later in the week)

Dishonorable Mention: Elizabeth Hurley (BEDAZZLED) – If the horned one was going to be a woman, obviously she’d be a blonde.

Big thanks to Ajax for helping me create this list.
