'Videodrome' Turned 40 in 2023?๐Ÿ“น๐Ÿ“ผ๐Ÿ“บ ๐ŸŽฌ

I remember seeing bits and pieces of the movie 'Videodrome' on a rented VHS tape my now ex-brother-in-law hired out one night from a video tape rental store and I thought it was totally bonkers.
Weird Studies Podcast: Long Live the New Flesh:
David Cronenberg's 'Videodrome
I watched the movie fully for the first time today after buying a copy through Apple TV (it cost as much to buy as to rent ... so why not buy it?) and listening to the latest 'Weird Studies' podcast episode about the hosts watching a screening of the film at a cinema gathering around Halloween this year.
I think I would have remembered seeing Blondie's nipple in the film if I had have seen the whole movie back in the day, being a red blooded straight young man:-)
I notice that Cronenberg's 
'Videodrome' movie didn't make it onto my old "Secret Sun Synchromystic Guru" mate's list of 1983 movies that "broke reality", but Cronenberg's 'The Dead Zone' did;-)
You can be too open minded to the
point that
your brain falls out?-)
And what sort of "old mate" would I be if I didn't plug Chris' new "profitetic" "prophetic" book about the comics industry (according to him) like he does every chance he gets ... even though I have no intention of reading it?-)
I think I'm gonna have to go on a 
Cronenberg movie watching binge before the year is over.
I still have Martin's 'Taxi Driver' to watch yet, though ... and maybe a re-watch of 'Killers of the Flower Moon' when it hits Apple TV -
TAXI for Mr. Knowles?!๐Ÿš•๐Ÿ˜ต๐Ÿš–๐Ÿ•ณ๐Ÿ‡


  1. I hadn't seen or thought of this one in years! How did our SS buddy skip this one in his latest 1983 blog?!

  2. He'll probably argue that the movie was a box office bomb that year to cover his tracks, or some such lame excuse.
