IRISH DEATH HOUSE

Villagers call for demolition of cursed home after five deaths

\"Kerry

Kerry village residents believe there is “bad luck” associated with the doomed bogside cottage.

Locals in the village of Lixnaw, County Kerry, are seeking the demolition of a cottage they believe to be cursed. At least five tragic deaths are associated with the property, including the violent murder of a woman in 2013.

Lixnaw’s parish priest said locals believe there is a “máchail” (defect or harm) or “mí-ádh” (bad luck) associated with the council-owned cottage on the edge of Ballynageragh bog. The local’s fears were brought to light at the first meeting of the Listowel Electoral Area meeting.

Five of the cottage’s residents have been the victims of tragic, accidental or violent deaths. Just last year, on November 27, Susan Dunne (62) was murdered in the house. Her autistic son, Patrick (20) is to stand trial for her murder, at the Central Criminal Court, on April 13.

Locals also say a man who lived in the cottage was stabbed in Wales, another resident died in a road accident, and in the past 20 years there have been three tragic deaths at the cottage, involving different families.

Sinn Fein Councillor Robert Beasley told the Irish Examiner that no one will ever live there again and said locals are concerned that the council will try to house another family in the house.

The council has confirmed that they are considering demolishing the cottage, however the recently deceased Dunne’s personal effects remain in the house. They are liaising with her family and have yet to make a decision about a refurbishment or demolition.

FAITH NO MORE

It was such a pleasure to rediscover one of my favorite bands and marvel at their weird vibrant mix of metal, rap, symphonic, even classical elements. Here are all their full albums available on youtube.

True story: The day ANGEL DUST was released, I brought it w/ me to a “wicked cool” party in Boston— strippers, artists, musicians. (Not a writer in the bunch.) Anyway, after the current “cool” album had finished playing, I slipped Angel Dust by Faith No More in the stereo.

And everyone walked out of the room.

Why?

“Oh, they’re over,” someone told me, later. “They’re never going to write a better song than EPIC. They’re over.” And he swung back his bottle of cheap beer and swaggered into the other room to flirt with the strippers.

Depression.

Ladies, boys, robots— FAITH NO MORE.

 BLUE VELVET

Yes, this is a “Just Because” moment. But also I wanted to repeat an appraisal of this movie, “The Hardy Boys Go to Hell.”

ATOMIC SUBMARINE!

THIS was the most fun I’d had with a B Movie in a long time.

APOLLO

We just passed the 45th anniversary of humans setting foot on The Moon. This is the only photo I felt worthy of posting.

That’s my son Damien at the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum in Washington DC on the weekend of the 45th anniversary of The Moon Landing and I was not there.

Ashtray Chat: What Do You Think About This, Kids? THE MAD MAX FURY ROAD TRAILER

George Miller, creator and director of the classic MAD MAX movies, has been threatening/promising us with the sequel FURY ROAD for nearly fifteen years. In 2015, it’ll finally be here.

Your humble curator has some problems.

1: There’s no good reason on Earth that Mel Gibson isn’t playing Max in this movie. Yeah, yeah, I’m always thumping for reinvention, but—I just can’t accept another actor other than Mel in the role of Max. Not while Mel’s still walking and talking (and drinking). For fuck’s sake, they made Max look old in the horrid THUNDERDOME, and that was in 1985! Sorry, but MEL OR HELL is my motto.

2. Yes, every bit of this trailer looks “awesome,” but I can point to 96% of it and say, “That came from ROAD WARRIOR. And that came from ROAD WARRIOR. And THAT came from ROAD WARRIOR!”

(To play devil’s advocate w/ myself for a moment: There’s not a single sequence in THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK that doesn’t have its origins from the original STAR WARS, A NEW HOPE. However, EMPIRE is clearly the superior film. And the elements/sequences lifted from the first film were extended to nearly dreamlike extremes—yes, you can find their origins if you dig for them, but there’s no overt Tie Fighter battle, no trash compactor, no Death Star trench.)

2, continued: So, I’m seeing SO many shots/elements lifted carbon copy from ROAD WARRIOR in this trailer. Which depresses me.

3. IF THIS IS A DIRECT SEQUEL TO ROAD WARRIOR, HOW THE FUCK DOES HE SECURE ANOTHER V-8 INTERCEPTOR?!?!

(sorry. had to let the über geek out of his cage for a second)

4. What’s up with the quintet of babes?! It not only echoes The Warrior Woman from RW (times five) but this pisses me off because I’m currently writing two “Triple Goddess” stories and I just want to scream BACK the FUCK off!

Allright that last one doesn’t mean anything to anybody except me (maybe), but I still had to fire it off.

I don’t know. I’ll still probably be second in line for MAD MAX FURY ROAD. But I’ll be yelling “MEL! MEL! MEL.”
