A tribe in papa new Guinea has ritualistic scarring, where it leaves the flesh looking like a crocodiles scales.

They believe they evolved from crocodiles, and this is a way of showing tribute. Pretty badass.

Tobe hopper originally wanted the Texas chainsaw massacre to be rated PG and more like a human version of the later film jaws, ironically jaws has much more blood and even gore than the nearly bloodless TCM and was still only rated PG.


The Texas chainsaw massacre was partly funded by the Mafia. Bryston pictures was originally a money laundering company the mafia used to move dirty money. It was also the production company behind the making and distribution of deep throat one of the earliest wide released pornographic films.

Gunnar Hanson the actor playing leatherface actually cut his leg while filming the final scene of the Texas chainsaw massacre, he had a scar on his leg for the remainder of his life.

The agents of Renee zelwegger and Matthew macconahey actually managed to block the release of the Texas chainsaw massacre 4 aka the next generation because they believed it would ruin their at the time rising careers.


Motel hell was at one point considered to be a Texas chainsaw massacre sequel but became its own film when director Tobe Hooper left the production.
Also, there's only one chainsaw death in the entire movie, Franklin, and if I remember, it's entirely offscreen.

Horror punk band the misfits were formed out of the original lead singer Glen Danzig's garage in Lodi NJ

The original sex pistols stole all their own instruments from breaking and entering music shops after hours or during riots.

Similarly early hip hop got its start because most of the original DJs and artists looted equipment from shops during the 1977 NYC blackout.


In the summer of 1979 the Detroit tigers held a promotion called disco demolition night. Where tickets to the game were offered at half price if you brought in a disco record that in a mid game event would be destroyed either with fireworks or launched out of a junk mortar. The event attracted even non baseball fans such as fans if Rock and roll or punk music who hated the Disco genre.

The event was a disaster. Halfway through the demolition event the rowdy crowds of Rock fans had stared riots, tore up the field, stole bases, harrassd the players and tried to rush their dugouts or locker rooms, and the white sox had to forfeit the game. It's often called "the day the 70s died"

A dumb hole is an acoustic analogue of the black hole -- a region, surrounded by an event horizon, in a compressible fluid within which the escape velocity exceeds the speed of sound. Because so far we cannot create a black hole in our labs, dumb holes have been used as analogue experiments to study properties of black holes, such as Hawking's radiation.

Horseradish shows up exactly the same as blood when testing for blood or fluids... Top tip for a murder...

Sounds like the 10c beer night that went just as badly.

One of the participants in the riot was a young Michael Clarke Duncan. He slid into third base, got mugged for his silver belt buckle, and went home with a bat from the dugout as a souvenir.

The promotion was masterminded by Bill Veeck, who was known for colorful promotions like 'free lobster night' and 'free live chicken night'. He lost a leg serving in World War II and had a prosthesis with a built-in ashtray.

The day was supposed to be a double-header, but the second game got cancelled. People were scaling the sides of the stadium to get in, meaning a lot of tickets just weren’t sold.

A hatedom is always more autistic than a fandom.
Eh idk by the late 70s disco was everywhere and was overplayed and even bands like kiss were dabbling in the genre. (something you do NOT bring up with kiss fans ever, even today) and it's lifestyle had become a symbol of selling out to the mainstream and being a conformist (the more things change the more they stay the same I guess.)

But yeah the event was originally meant to be a fun tounge in cheek jab at the overexposure of the music and it's culture. But one too many Autistic overly excited members of the hatedom got way too out of hand and had no right to wreck the game and turn the baseball stadium into a disaster area.

So were the Stones ("Miss You") and Pink Floyd ("Another Brick in the Wall Part 2" among others thx Bob Ezrin). It's hard to find a band that never did anything remotely disco-like.

What do you expect when you invite a bunch of hate filled autists who don't even like baseball and then pump them full of booze for the stated purpose of an orgy of destruction and burning things? Havoc was more or less guaranteed.

The amount of drug overdoses, injuries, and sexual assaults at Woodstock 99 was at least three times or more the number of ones reported after the original Woodstock festival in 1969

Since today’s Friday the 13th i might as well share some things about the franchise

-In part 8 jason voorhees was originally supposed to kick a dog once he arrived in New York city but the actor playing him thought it was too cruel and that jason wouldn’t really kill animals despite contradicting that one scene in part 2 with the supposedly dead dog. speaking of part 8 it would’ve featured more New York scenes had they had a bigger budget.
-in the ending for part 5 it is shown that tommy jarvis is donning a jason mask and a knife to kill one of the surviving characters. This was never referenced in part 6 but in the novelization for part 5 it’s explained that the surviving character calmed him down.
-In part 4 one of the scenes in the movie is when a girl gets murdered while on a raft wearing mostly a bikini at night. During the production for that scene the actress was suffering from hypothermia because of the constant reshoots and the actor who played jason in that movie threatened to walk off the set if the director didn’t give her a blanket or something to keep her warm

That director was a piece of shit to everyone. Ted White and Corey Feldman both hated him.

White also hated Corey Feldman, said he was, "the meanest goddamn little kid." During the scene where Jason smashes through the window, he deliberately missed the cue where he was supposed to do the stunt by a couple beats. Feldman assumed the stunt had gone wrong and let his guard down, so when White actually broke through the window Feldman was legitimately terrified.

Joseph zito really hated women, just a few years before Friday part 4 he did almost the same thing to an actress in the prowler. Making her swim in a pool despite how freezing it was and hitting in the face several times with a prop boot just to "get the shot right." The actress said something along the lines of "it felt like I'd been kicked in the face by a a real boot by the time of the last take.



On a happier note the fairly odd parents song "my shinny teeth and me," is two minutes long. The exact amount of time the ADA recommends you brush your teeth for.

The first film screened in the white House was D.W Griffiths controversial film the birth of a Nation

The remake of birth of a Nation was also met with controversy, thought for different reasons. Instead of being a racist stereotype fest meant to glorify the Confederate south and possibly responsible for the revial of the KKK, the director of the remake was swamped with sexual assault on a minor charges.

The iconic gate from the native fortress in the 1933 version of King Kong was later destroyed when it was used as a prop in Gone with the wind for the burning of Atlanta.

The black actors in song of the south couldn't attend the movie's premiere in Atlanta because the only movie theater in Atlanta in 1946 was Whites only, and they could only see it in a segregated theater a week later.
