"I've come here to chew bubblegum and kick ass. And I'm all out of bubblegum."
Today begins The John Carpenter Effect: A Blog-A-Thon and it will continue through Wednesday. I have unleashed this Blog-A-Thon right after the opening of Grindhouse which I have argued is one endless tribute to John Carpenter. Even today as he sits back to play video games and smokes cigarettes, John Carpenter continues to influence modern entertainment with his directing, his composing, his writing, his producing, his characters, whatever.
You can post your links in the comments so I can link up to them or you can e-mail them directly to me at email@example.com. Title them John Carpenter or Blog A Thon. Thanks.
