Dear See Magazine...

re: this week's cover


I fixed it for you:


So I heard plenty o' bitchin' and whinin' about Watchmen, released this weekend. I've heard plenty of raves too, but the bitchin' seems to stand out the most. So I'd like to respond to the fanboy cranky-pant-iness with a few choice words: Bride Wars. Tyler Perry's Medea Goes to Jail. He's Just Not That Into You. Jonas Brothers 3D. The Pink Panther 2.

Maybe Watchmen is a movie that indeed should not have been made - not because the story isn't good, but because in today's test-marketed, carefully manipulated, low-risk Hollywood, ingenuity and vision is rarely rewarded. So just be fuckin' happy someone tried.

P.S. Hey Alan Moore... smile a little, dude.

In dEdmonton news: THE CREEPSHOW ARE COMING!!!

If you haven't seen Toronto's Creepshow, quit pickin' your ass and get tickets. This is power pop-punk with a hefty helping of halloweeny hellfire... and they're playing New City Suburbs this Wednesday. Guests include Australia's The Regulators and Calgary's Scorched Banditos.

I've seen these guys three times already, and they never disappoint. And with Ticketbastard scalping their own events, it's a great time to come out and support independent bands. Plus they have amazing t-shirts designed by Rue Morgue Magazine's own Ghoulish Gary Pullin!

If you need more convincing,
a. you're a douchebag
b. see videos below.

To hell with the Real Doll...




I spent thirty bucks on this and I don't regret it. Scare the fuck out of your coworkers, entertain your dog, or use it to fetch beer.

If you'd like your very own Dedhead, go see Mike and Joanne at Mars and Venus, on Whyte Avenue two doors down from Elephant and Castle.
