Pistols, Canadians, Lansdales, and Weirdness


Phantom of the Paradise starring Paul Williams, ['70s people]. Max Allan Collins likes this flick and wrote about it on his webpage. I figured, "What the heck" and ordered this new release. Directed by Brian DePalma.

Down to the Dirt starring [Canadians]. Adaptation of Joel Hynes's novel of a drunken layabout in Newfoundland who hides his poetry and finds a lady friend. (I couldn't find a decent trailer, but this came up when I searched.)

Training to Win by Ben Stoeger.  USPSA winning shooter from Eua Claire makes a DVD and poses with crossed arms on the back cover.  Tips and training techniques to improve your shooting and shave time off your shooting stages. There are two trailer for this one. The first is informative and second is fancy.

Christmas With the Dead starring [Texans] and Kasey Lansdale.  Adaptation of a Joe R. Lansdale story by Lansdale's son, Keith. A guy is out to have Christmas in June no matter how many zombies get in the way.

Bonus Musical Interlude

Joe R. Lansdale was plugging his daughter Kasey's new music video. We have the CD here at the library.
