Mondo Diablo Episode 278: Death Robbery

This is an episode of “Lights Out” starring Boris Karloff. It’s another in my collection of medical procedures that could be seen as almost routine, but in the 30′s and 40′s, they brought about Hell-anxieties.

Mondo Diablo Episode 277: The Dunwich Horror

The Dunwich Horror comes to us from H. P. Lovecraft, who informs us of the origins of Cthulu. You would think that, coming from Massachusetts, Lord Cthulu would be a democrat. Oh well, live and learn.

Mondo Diablo Episode 276: Do Whatever You Want; Don’t Mind Me

In case you’re wondering, I saw this video posted on this blog: http://goeagles2u.blogspot.com/ . I don’t know if anyone is entertained by endtimes predictions, but I wouldn’t mind if the blog author saw this on his trackback.

This is another typical alarmist video from some Christian preacher. A Warning-against-Rampant-Satanism video is not a rarity, not by any means. This one happens to be chock full of copyright violationy goodness. Yes, it’s fair use. But I don’t think Disney knows what Fair Use means. You have to wonder how many Christian materials snatched up Disney content to show rampant liberalism/homosexuality/satanism/Communism is. Hey, RIAA: don’t look at me: you should really plumb the depths of the Christian Educational Video genre. It would be a goldmine–for the RIAA, of course, Not for the artists. Riiight. They give money won from lawsuits to ARTISTS. I’d like to see THAT happen.
