I saw this on Facebook, I wish I had the link for whoever created it:
I found myself with a little extra time on my hands yesterday, so I stopped by the antique mall by my son’s school. It’s been so long since I found a tiki in the wild that I thought it proper to take a picture of them “in situ”.
Then today I found this kitschy rattan mirror that we have absolutely no room for whatsoever. I mean of course it came home with me but we still have no idea what to do with it.

This thing right here is called a SHOE not a CHUTE.
The premise of the (really bad) movie is this. Frankenstein’s monster was so upset about being a lonely hodgepodge creation that he killed Dr. Frankenstein’s wife out of spite and went on the lamb. The good Doctor followed him until he dies from frostbite, at which point Frankenstein’s monster returned his corpse to his family’s cemetery to give him a proper burial, even though he feels he doesn’t deserve it.
While burying the body, he is approached by demons that try to capture him for the demon prince Naberius. At this point some gargoyles swoop in (no, really), and tell the monster that he is now officially a part of the underground war between gargoyles and demons, a war that may affect mankind, should the demons win. The gargoyles kill the demons and take Frankenstein’s monster to meet Leonore, the queen of the gargoyles. Homegirl thinks that the monster should have a name, so she dubs him Adam. Yes, Adam. Like… the guy was cobbled together with 8 dead bodies and the power of electric eels, and you name him Adam?? Nothing a little flashier?
Leonore tries to get “Adam” to be on the side of the gargoyles- to kill the demons and make them descend into hell. Because HOLY TOLEDO this movie talked a lot about heaven and hell and God. Anyways, Adam declines and chooses to fend for himself but leaves behind Dr. Frankenstein’s scientific journal detailing how he created life, which Leonore stashes in some top-secret gargoyle vault.
200 years later, Adam has been running around hiding from/killing demons, and he winds back up in gargoyle city. He has managed to get a haircut in the previous 200 years, but Leonore has not. At this point the battle for him or the scientific journal reaches new heights as they learn the demon prince Naberius wants to learn the secrets of reanimating corpses so he can bring back demons that have already been descended into corpses that can’t be killed.
Their is a brief moment where Adam mentions the reason he was upset with the doctor is because he was promised a mate (a bride!!!) and he never delivered. God, this movie was just so bad. I was thinking “what’s next? Is he going to hint at meeting the wolf man?”.
I CAN say that the fight scenes between gargoyles and demons were really, really neat. Like worth the price of a matinee neat. Other than that, I don’t think I really have anything positive to say about it. The gargoyles were amazing and the demons looked like something that would have been on the first season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I couldn’t wrap my head around the fact that I’ve seen indy filmmakers have better looking demons than in this multi-million dollar blockbuster. I also wondered who the test-subjects were for this film. It’s a movie about Frankenstein based on a graphic novel with an amazing premise- and it was just no bueno. Who did this movie screen with and what was their knowledge of graphic novels and the history of Frankenstein? And as my husband asked, “why did they make the monster a total beefcake?”.
According to homeboy, he’s trying to make every February known as Tiki Month! I was clued in via the Frankie’s Tiki Room Facebook page, and admittedly I was an easy sell. I happen to have this Saturday off work*, so it looks like we’ll be having a little tiki celebration to commemorate this, the most holy of months.
*I took the night off work so my husband and I could go see I, Frankenstein. I know it looks cheesy but as a family we’re 100% committed to all things Frankenstein. And getting out of the house without 2 kiddos in tow involves months of planning, a day off work, and children with their other parents. Hopefully everything will come together, we haven’t had a night out together since the week we got married.
I don’t understand why those bell charm necklaces from the 80′s aren’t popular again. You can’t tell me that if Katy Perry wore one of these in a video they wouldn’t be going for like $100/piece on Ebay. I’m calling it right now- these WILL make a comeback.
