Since S.Z. & Scott have hit the big time at Amazon…

Posted by Anntichrist S Coulter on February 13, 2007 – 1:09 am

Since I pussed-out on my “review” of S.Z. & Scott’s wonderful book, Better Living Through Bad Movies, here’s my Amazon review, to make up for my lame-ass review earlier:

(5 STARS) Made me laugh out loud so hard that I needed Poise pads!, February 12, 2007
Reviewer: Anntichrist S. Coulter (What’s Left Of Louisiana) – I’ll never forget the day last fall when this wonder of the written word, this pulp-based pulchritudinous prose, this book among books, arrived in the mail. It’s been a long time (since Hunter Thompson, Lewis Grizzard, and Erma Bombeck died, anyway) since a book made me laugh out-loud, but this one did the trick.

I’ve always enjoyed Scott & S.Z.’s movie-reviews-as-geopolitical-discourse pieces at World O’Crap (http://world-o-crap.com/blog/ ), but to have them in more-portable, curl-up-in-bed-and-laugh-yourself-silly, take-it-anywhere-and-annoy-the-people-in-the-waiting-room format was a great boon to my reading life. The title alone was enough to impress my former doctor, a barely-shaving young tot who specialized in “pain management.” Hopefully he’ll fork over some of his Medicare riches and buy a few copies.

This book is an ideal gift for anyone who’s ever liked movies, political commentary, or who has a sense of humor. And even for those stick-in-the-mud in-laws who have less humor than a wet diaper, this book is still a winner — they may not get ALL of the jokes, but they’ll at least give themselves a migraine in the pursuit, so it’s the gift that keeps on giving!

When I can, I plan to keep a case of Better Living Through Bad Movies by the front door, to help educate & enlighten wayward Mormons, Jehovah’s Witnesses, and Amway salespeople. Also very useful for flogging the aforementioned people over the head when they JUST WON’T LISTEN.

If I could generate the interest and tax shelters, I believe that we could start a whole new cult based on Better Living Through Bad Movies — as long as the critters at S.Z.’s house get to benefit from the fundraisers, and we can set up our own compound out in the undisclosed wilderness (but sure as hell not in WACO!!) — Better Living Through Bad Movies could become a whole new way of life!

To contribute to the Church Of Divinely Bad Movies and Wingnut Exorcisms, just click on the “purchase” button!

SO, to those of you who have not yet indulged in this funny-as-hell book, go forth and purchase! Yeah, I know, I plug a lot of stuff, but dammit, this one is GOOD!!! And if you don’t laugh out loud while reading Better Living Through Bad Movies, then your soul is deader than mine. And that’s pretty fuckin’ sad. And no, I don’t get any kickbacks from promoting this book, I just get the warm, fuzzly feeling of knowing that I’m playing matchmaker between good people and a great book. So put that in yer friggin’ pipe and smoke it.

Now, if we can just get this book over to Seattle @ Mystery & Jackson Street Books (hint-hint!), then we might be able to cheer up a whole assload more people… And after all, independent booksellers ARE better than gigantic corporate megoliths, so maybe if y’all drop a few hints to Tammy & Dan, they might wanna get in on the World O’Crap hallelujah train…

    Thanks Annti. Even Rush Limbaugh’s grotesquely enlarged heart is dwarfed by the size of your brobdignagian ticker.

    We are so all over that! This just posted at the General’s:

    Just had super secret book dealings with the author and the book will be available at Jackson Street Books. Details to follow!

    As of now this info is on the QT and the Hush-Hush. Over and out.

    You are too valuable a ranting member of the eBourgeoise.

    I have a small pile of computer parts that are a) still useful, b) gathering dust, and c) looking mighty tempting to the trash can. You mentioned issues recently. Can I help? I know where the post office is and I’m not afraid to use it.

    I can also typically spin off data from dead hard drives and/or resurrect them, even if they’ve been kicked (well, semi-resurrect).

    Yell over at yahoo.com with email to namedotcom67@

    Cheers, clef
