The original house of horror

Filed under: Main — Mackanlee @ 3:53 pm

Here is a clip from the original house where the Texas Chainsaw massacre cult classic film was recorded. In the first sequence you can see when people visited it in the early 90s when it was in a state of run down disrepair.

In the second sequence you can see actor Gunnar Hansen, the Icelandic/American actor who portrayed Leatherface in the original film give a tour of the house later when it has been moved and turned into a restaurant. According to wikipedia “In preparation for his role, he regarded Leatherface as being mentally retarded and having never learned to speak properly. To research his character, Hansen visited a special needs school and watched how the students moved and spoke.”

Zippo 101

Filed under: Main — Mackanlee @ 12:41 pm

My good friend Phil bought me a zippo lighter that he had engraved with one of my motifs when he was living in Hong Kong. It is one of my prized possessions. It stopped working this weekend and it turned out the flint was grinded down so I got a new one at a great tabbacco shop on the corner where I live. When I pulled out the spring to changed the flint it looked like there already was a flint attached to it. My first reaction was to pull it off but then something inside me said this will only break the lighter. Trusy old you tube had the answer. The thing that looked like a flint was actually just the spacer that pushes the flint upwards. Heres the instructional video:
