Not Cee’s Share Your World

SYWCee Neuner, from Cee’s Photography, and host of her widely popular Share Your World weekly prompt, is on vacation for a few weeks. So Melanie, from Sparks From a Combustible Mind, decided that she would step up to the plate and post an “unofficial” Share Your World prompt this week.

Okay, I’ll unofficially play. Here are her questions.

Have you ever been in a food fight?

When my kids were young many decades ago, we’d get in food fights, generally involving Cheerios.

How do you deliver bad news?

Gingerly. I’m not good at delivering bad news, so I try to do it gently.

What (if anything) do you think is beyond the stars?

Since the universe is infinite, I think that “beyond the stars” is non sequitur. Thus, the stars and planets go on and on and on. To infinity and beyond! B6E3C717-E758-472D-B51D-403DE898BB10

What “redneck” (unsophisticated) activity do you like to do?

Hmm. I dunno. Watching sports on TV and drinking a beer or two, maybe.

Is there a scary scene from a movie (or book) you viewed as a child that still haunts you?

There was a movie I saw when I was maybe twelve. I think it was called “Horrors of the Black Museum.” All I remember from the movie was a scene where a guy picks up a pair of binoculars and, when he puts them up to his eyes, two long spikes where the eye lenses should have been shot out and poked him in the eyes and killed him. I think I might have pissed my pants when I saw that. I haven’t picked up and looked through a pair of binoculars since seeing that movie.

Seal’s ‘Kiss From A Rose’ was the theme from which film? 

Easy peasy. “Batman Forever.” Okay, I lied. I had no idea, so I Googled it.

Thanks, Melanie, for filling in.

    “Horrors of the Black Museum.” Garry thought it was made earlier, in the 1930s, but the version you saw seems to have been made in 1959 and was filmed in “Hypnovision” when everything else was in Cinemascope.It gave the impression of being much older than it was. The plot is as you described it, including the binoculars which were the evidence to solving the murder. It was the story of a “thrill writer” trying to creating something to write about. It was used (to some degree) in creating “House of Wax” with Vincent Price — which was the movie that scared the crap out of Garry as a kid.

    I looked this up six ways to Sunday and it was still made in 1959. Meanwhile, as it turns out, Garry is taping it because it’s on somewhere — probably HBO which is the only non-streaming movie channel we still have. I’ve never seen it. He’s not sure it’s “my kind of movie.” Probably now. I’m sensitive about my eyes.

    I’ve seen most of the “old” horror movies. I used to practice talking like Dracula as did my other girlfriends and after a while, we almost forgot how to talk normally. I really don’t know how all the adults didn’t go nuts after a few weeks, but there were like five of us, all talking ALL THE TIME like Bela Lugosi. I think we talked more like Bela than Bela did. But those old movies weren’t scare, just silly.

    I saw the Exorcist when my first husband was in the hospital with kidney cancer (no, that didn’t kill him — heart disease did it 20 years later) and mostly, it made me sick because it reminded me too much of how ill he was and the tests they were running. At that point in time (1968, I think) tests were a medical version of torture.

    It’s funny because Garry is hardly EVER wrong about movies, so I had been looking for an earlier version of it this that became the 1959 version, but even IMDB couldn’t come up with anything.

    I get into this “research mode” thing and have to dig until i’m convinced it isn’t there to be found or I find it. Let me know if you remember anything more about it … like who starred in it maybe? Or a slightly different title? But the plot of the 1959 version is exactly as you remember it, so that probably IS the right one. Garry’s brain isn’t as sharp as usual this week.

      I don’t remember much about that movie, other than the binoculars scene. But that has stuck with for six decades. Quite impactful!

    Great answers. I’m happy indeed that I wasn’t ‘allowed’ to see horror films prior to a certain age (although come to think of it, I saw Psycho at age 7 or maybe 9…weird because the fosters didn’t let us touch the TV ((if they had one)), but I saw it in their house. Probably an older kid was babysitting the rest of us and thought that an easy way to entertain us all. I still have trouble with closed shower curtains… )

    Hold on you’re scared with binoculars, but not with cameras. Strange. Btw. Did you try those mirror less cameras. Sony one?

    Good answers … I liked that you Googled the Seal song. I knew it was from one of the Batman movies but couldn’t recall which one.

      You knew more than me, then. I remember the song, but I had no idea it was a movie theme, much less one from a Batman movie.

    Great answers. I loved the one about what is beyond the stars, but I’d honestly say there’s a restaurant at the end of the universe. Thhat’s one of the books in the Hitchhiker’s guide to the galaxy series (in case you thought I made it up, I didn’t, and I didn’t even read this book). As for a Redneck activity, I love love love to liten to country music.
