I initially wanted to call the blog "Indoor Bullstuff" (a Joe Bob Briggs reference; look it up folks), but another blog already had that URL ("Thrivin' at the Drive-In"), so I settled on "Movie Bullstuff". I soon changed it to "Cinema Gonzo", which I thought was more appropriate, as I wasn't just reviewing B-movies. It's also a tribute to a personal hero of mine, Hunter S. Thompson.
Well, after almost 40,000 page views and 160 odd posts, I'm still sane and alive, and will continue to word spew despite the governing laws of logic and taste. Expect many more reviews of 80's trash (spilling over into the early 90's) and slasher films (my forte, I guess), along with reviews of more "normal" movies (whatever tickles my fancy across the great cinematic spectrum). It's sort of a 50/50 split, art and trash, blah blah.
For the record, I've had a picture of Suzy Putterman from Terror Vision (played by the esteemed Diane Franklin) on this blog in some form or another since day one. I'd like to think of her as the official mascot around these parts, an effervescent valley girl that incorporates the musical aesthetics of the day (whether new wave, punk, or metal) into a glorious cacophony of color and form that sends a laser shot directly into the crotch. If you could enter into my noggin, it would all make perfect sense. Also, she fucking rocks.
