I LOVE the Sense of Humour on this site! Also, I have finally added a photo of myself ~ it's right there on the left, above the "About Me," OK?
NOTE: I have MANY more fave movies below, so read this whole thing ~ IF you dare! (I will be making proper lists once I have more time.)
URGENT NOTICE: IF ANYONE THINKS IT IS OK FOR BEINGS WHO ARE TECHNICALLY "HUMAN" (I CONSIDER THEM "DEMONIC") TO HAVE NAZI PROPAGANDA (INCLUDING SWASTIKAS, BUT WHICH ARE NOT MOVIE CLIPS, OF COURSE!) ON THIS SITE, WHEN THEY HAVE HUNDREDS, IF NOT THOUSANDS, OF SITES OF THEIR OWN TO SPREAD THEIR HATRED ~ DO NOT SPEAK TO ME ~ JUST BLOCK ME ~ FOREVER!!! I'D ALSO APPRECIATE IT IF YOU WOULD REPORT THIS BLATANT ABUSE!!! I HAVE FOUND TWO PROFILE PHOTOS ("friends of friends," or so I thought!) WITH VERY CURRENT, REAL~LIFE NAZIS & SWASTIKAS, & I"D BE HAPPY TO TELL YOU WHO THEY ARE: usernames "enazist" & "euggiancana": PLEASE, REPORT THEM NOW!!! THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO EXCUSE FOR THIS, NONE, WHATSOEVER!!!
IMPORTANT NOTICE: I don't know what the heck they're doing over there at YouTube, but the ONLY way I have been able to get to my Channel/Profile & access my 50plus Playlists [w/out being myself, which takes me directly there, obviously...], that is, the only way all of YOU can get there, is this way: 1.) Get to YouTube any way you like; 2.) Type in the YouTube "Search" window, "Slayedgah's Playlists"; 3.) For some crazy/secret/mysterious reason, it will ONLY show TWO of my Playlists at a time!; 4.) Not to worry: put your cursor/arrow/mouse on the "Slayedgah" [it's the ancient & correct pronunciation of my last name ~ but I don't make an issue out of it like Dana in "Hamlet 2"!] part, & VOILA ~ you FINALLY get to my "Slayedgah's Channel," which I've entitled, "True Blood Fang Banger Forever," & I THOUGHT that was how other people got there! I WAS WRONG! If anyone knows a better way, be my guest & PLEASE tell me!?!? Thank You.
OH! I am saying this to EVERYONE, male & female, straight & gay, old & young...ONE more thing: as Matilda says to Derek in one of my all~time fave movies, "Zoolander," which brilliantly lampoons the Fascist~I~mean~Fashion [both words come from the same root, which pretty much means "fisting," for obvious reasons...] Industry ~ & pretentious people everywhere ~ "I'm not trying to sleep with you!!!" OK, that's 99% of the time; I will leave that 1% open, since stranger things have happened, & in the Spirit of, "Never Say Never"! OK?

I really loved when I was little, & still do, John Cassavetes & Peter Falk & George C. Scott, & all the great Classic Golden Age ["TCM"] actors & actresses from the 1930's & 1940's!
Fave TV Shows: "Supernatural," "Paranormal State," "Medium," "Psych," "SNL" "Lie to Me," "True Blood," "Ghost Adventures," "Most Haunted," "Apparitions," "Afterlife," "National Geographic Explorer," & basically everything on: History & History International & BBC America & PBS & Chiller, Sci, Sleuth, & of course, SyFy!!! I especially love shows about History, Science & Space, Music, Theatre, & Travel.
OH! "The Mighty Boosh" & "Flight of the Conchords" & "Jeeves & Wooster" are the funniest things EVER!!!
Also hilarious: "My Favorite Year," "Grandma's Boy," "Undercover Brother," "The Hebrew Hammer," "Anchorman," "Dodgeball," "Beerfest," "Eurotrip," "Hot Fuzz," "This Is Spinal Tap," "Happy, Texas," "Death to Smoochy," "Serial Mom," & I'll keep adding-on as I think of them!
[Some GREAT slightly older shows are: "American Gothic," "Millenium," "Highlander," "Witchblade" & "Poltergeist: The Legacy."]
I LOVE Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque & Chamber Music, plus: Jeff Buckley, NIN, Goldfrapp, Andreas Johnson, Evanescence, Cat Stevens, MUSE, Coldplay, Tori Amos, Kate Bush, Kerli, Bjork, Sarah Brightman, Josh Groban, Linkin Park, Loreena McKinnit, Sarah McLachlan, Led Zep, The Beatles, Alison Krauss, Sinead, U2, This Picture, Interpol, Dido, Gene Loves Jezebel [& that's both Michael's & Jay's], The The, Korn, The CULT, Grant Lee Buffalo, Andrea Boccelli, Indian Sitar Music, Irish & Scottish Folk Music, & various World Music; Joni Mitchell, Sia, Yo-Yo Ma's Bach Cello [my fave instrument] Suites...RIGHT NOW & FOREVER, I AM ALL ABOUT HIM "His Infernal Majesty," from FINLAND ~ THEY ARE UTTERLY UNIQUE, YET A COMBINATION OF ALL THE MUSIC I LOVE, & Ville Valo has THE BEST Voice I have EVER heard!!! I never thought I'd love anyone as much as Jeff Buckley, but happily, I was wrong!!! I have several Playlists for them at YouTube ~ GO CHECK THEM OUT NOW!!!
Feel free to ask me questions! For one thing: NONE of these lists are in order of preference; I love them all ALMOST equally!
Be sure to check out: "Slayedgah's Channel" [INSTRUCTIONS ABOVE!!!] & experience my Playlists ~ NOT just about "True Blood"! I've got: Jeff Buckley, Trent Reznor & NIN, Led Zep, Evanesscence, Kate Bush, Tori Amos, Goldfrapp, Andreas Johnson, Leikki Li, & LOTS of other Artists! I've got "Battle Star Gallactica" & LOTS of Comedy Playlists as well, & also movie clips by Theme ~ Explore & Discover! I'm finding great new Music all the time I've never even heard of before!
NOTICE: I just saw a GREAT movie on IFC called "Dummy," w/Adrien Brody, Vera Farmiga, Milla Jovovich & Ileana Douglas: it's quiet, but HILARIOUS, with TONS of HEART, & "everything works out great for everyone!" [A great line from "Prelude to a Kiss"!] Also, a movie called, "Return to Rajipour," with Lynn Collins [from "True Blood"] is absolutely BEAUTIFUL, both the story itself, & visually, the way its shot is...Perfection.
OH! Also on IFC, "Bollywood Hero," starring Chris Kattan, is absolutely hysterical! ("Corky Romano" is also a very under~rated campy masterpiece, about a super~positive almost~Veterinarian who is forced to go undercover within the FBI, & then transforms everyone's lives; another under-rated movie is, "Club Paradise," starring Robin Williams, Peter O'Toole, Johanna Cassidy, & MOST of SCTV; TRUST ME: It's FUNNY!!! Then, of course, most of them are in Christopher Guest's: "A Mighty Wind," "Waiting for Guffman," & "For Your Consideration," etc.)
I also totally LOVE "Miss Petigrew Lives for a Day," & anything that's "Jeeves & Woosterish," like P.G. Wodehouse?
I've also just remembered: "Martian Child," "The Majestic," "Regarding Henry," "the Last Samurai," "The Last Temptation of Christ," "What Dreams may Come," "Casino Royale," "The Rocker," & anything with Zooey Deschanel, THE most adorable thing alive!
I just saw two great films! On IFC, "Wondrous Oblivion," set in post-WW II England, about the relationships between a Jewish immigrant family & a Jamaican one ~ it's serious sometimes, but mostly funny & sweet & insightful!
Not so funny, "Blue Gold," re: the profiteering of the 3% of the fresh water [97% is salt water] left on the planet, & much of that is polluted. The greed & avarice & power & ego~tripping involved is truly frightening.
People [& animals & plants, Nature & Gaia Herself...], used to have FREE RIGHTS to water, the ONE thing we cannot live without, the ONE thing that unites us; somehow, Europe & the USA have managed to manifest a stranglehold upon the entire rest of the world: it's OBSCENE.
[It's just like a cross between, "Tank Girl," & "Omen 3," you know, "Famine & controling Famine is our business"?]
I cannot BELIEVE that I forgot "HERO," the Asian one [of course!]...what a beautiful film! It's more like moving Poetry than a Martial Arts or Historical movie, you know?
I cannot BELIEVE I left-out these FAVE people: Jason Statham, Jack Black, & all the "Monty Python" dudes! I especially LOVE "Fawlty Towers," co~written by John Cleese & Connie Booth, & also starring Prunella Scales ~ BRILLIANT ~ & a bit before a lot of you younger ones' Time...I hope you check it out!
And yes, I'm actually going to push: "Jeeves & Wooster" AGAIN! For you younger individuals, it stars Hugh Laurie from "House" & Stephen Fry of "Oscar" [Wilde] fame, & a BBC show called "Kingdom"? I have quite a few excerpts on my YouTube site [INSTRUCTIONS ABOVE, AT TOP OF THIS "About Me" SECTION], OK?
IF you visit me there, I'd like to especially encourage you younger kids (bearing in mind, I still consider myself a "kid"!) to check~out the incomparable Jeff Buckley, who would've died when you guys were only 5 or 6 years' old, so you may not have heard of him the way you have someone as famous as Kurt Cobain, for instance.
Jeff was not only an AMAZING Poet [the best since RUMI, & that's saying a LOT!] & Composer, but he had an 8 & 1/2 Octave voice, & he was so very beautiful, inside & out! Indeed, I'm hoping it is HE who greets me in Heaven! He was already an Angel. Of course, he could get very DARK...
Nonetheless, in case anyone is confused, it was his father, TIM Buckley who overdosed on heroin. Jeff's was an accidental drowning, & there were ZERO drugs in his system (not that I'd judge him if there were!). I only mention it because I was confused myself until a few years ago. They practically worship him in Europe, it is said. When I was downloading my James Dean photos, I was struck by how much he reminds me of Jeff Buckley ~ it'a a bit eerie.
Anyway, I have about 50 different Playlists, for both Music & Comedy, & quite a few Movie Clips as well! (& I'm ALWAYS adding NEW goodies!)
I DO NOT GET ANY MONEY FROM IT NOR FOR IT! I ONLY DO IT FOR LOVE, & TO SHARE THAT LOVE OF ALL OF THE AWESOME CREATIVITY OF ALL OF THE ARTISTS INVOLVED, INCLUDING ALL OF THE "BEHIND THE SCENES" PEOPLE! NO MONEY & NO COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT! Please enjoy yourselves!
Thank You for that most precious of all states of BEING ~ the giving of one's TIME.
Namaste & Shalom,
