HORROR STAR ROBERT QUARRY - AN UPDATE (repost) [01 May 2008|02:48am]

firstratedevil
A lot of you may not know about what has been happening with Robert Quarry. Let me clue you in. A bad "fan", whom we will call a Vulture or a Leech, recently took him for a pretty evil ride. It was discovered that this person, who got very close to him over the last few years, robbed him blind. They not only kept a lot of his real friends that could have helped him away, but also drained his bank account, stole personal memorabilia from him, swiped items that fans had sent to him to autograph (also the postage stamps to return the items). They even kept many of the items and most of the money from things they were given from his personal collection to sell on Ebay. Things got REAL nasty, without spilling the details, it was almost the kind of thing you would expect to see in a case of battered wife syndrome. Then the LEECH split town.

Basically, Robert Quarry, whom as you know has been very ill on and off for the last several years, was left with nothing. He lost the place he was living. He had no place to go and had to move into a, well, I can only say he was fortunate enough to be admitted into a "home". He has had to start again from scratch, needing even the most basic of things.

Help is starting to come in, but he still needs your help. Be there for Robert Quarry. Even if it is just a letter saying how much he and his films have meant to you, it is a good start a picking up his spirits. Sure, you can even send things for him to autograph, but send him a couple bucks too. Anything will be an improvement. There are some other things that will benefit him too, as are listed below.

The following is a message I recently received, I want you to know that I do have permission from the authors to repost it.

UPDATE FROM THE CRYPT OF QUARRY!

Yesterday I paid a visit to Robert Quarry to deliver all the goodies you guys have sent for his new Crypt. It was an amazing day, made even more so by the presence of none other than Hucklebilly himself, Ryan Fleming, and my tremendously kind and talented colleague, Joe Mo (producer and co-writer of RED VELVET which wowed everybody this past weekend at the Fango con). Joe wrote an amazing update to TEAM QUARRY this morning, so I figured I would "hand the microphone over" and let him take it from here. Bleeding Love………. Tim

Hey, gang!

A spectacular Sunday at Bob's! I left the RED VELVET booth at the Fango Con early to meet Tim Sullivan and Ryan Fleming (who plays Hucklebilly in Tim's 2001 MANIACS) at the Motion Picture Home. When I got there at 3PM , the guys had already stacked heaps of presents all over the room. Tim had taken the time to wrap each and every gift that wasn't already wrapped. It literally looked like Christmas in April with all the dozens and dozens of boxes big and small (many of which were CDs and DVDs from the movie studios and other loving and generous individuals).

Bob was ecstatic to see all the stuff. Tim had gone beyond the call of duty and put a copy of every single e-mail note he'd received from all of Bob's fans and contributors into bright, colorful envelopes which he then attached to each present. In addition to printing out these emails, Tim somehow found photos on My Space of everyone who wrote them so that Bob could associate the gift giver with the gift. (He also compiled a separate bound booklet of all these letters for Bob to be able to keep and peruse so that he can always remember just how loved he is.)

Bob opened letters and cards and was baffled whenever money fell out - as it often did. Some of the notes were read aloud and I got choked up hearing them on more than one occasion. Ryan passed each gift to Bob and Tim acted thrilled and surprised every time one was opened (even though he'd wrapped all of them).

My job was assembling the items that needed to be constructed (a gorgeous sofa, an entertainment center,CD/DVD tower). I had brand new 8X10 photos printed and Bob really loved them! I was touched when he took one with him to dinner to show it off. I knew then that he really did approve and would be happy to sign them and send them out as THANK YOU's to every one who was kind enough to contribute. Bob was so excited and energetic, but eventually his legs began to hurt, so for the rest of our visit we made him lie down and tell us where to put items and how to arrange things.

We straightened up and arranged furniture as best we could on this one visit, promising to return and bring more and do more later in the week. We left at around 8PM feeling very accomplished and proud of everyone in our amazing community of caring folk. I took pictures of the event which Tim uploaded to his site.

CLICK HERE TO VIEW ROBERT QUARRY PHOTO ALBUM

As much as Bob has received, because he is literally starting from scratch, there are still several very crucial items that he still requires. The registries are still up, so please, do all you can for Bob in this time of need.

CLICK HERE TO SHOP AT TARGET FOR COUNT YORGA

CLICK HERE TO SHOP AT AMAZON FOR COUNT YORGA

Per Bob's direct request, he would prefer that his home address NOT be given out, and that all fan mail correspondence be sent to the following address:

ROBERT QUARRY
C/O NEW REBELLION ENTERTAINMENT
1366 ½ RIVIERA AVENUE
VENICE, CA 90291

He WILL get back to everyone.

In fact, we thought it might be very cool to offer up this brand new photo I designed and had printed up our dear ol' guy...

Anyone who would like this bad boy personally signed by Bob should simply make out a check for $22.50 (postage included) to ROBERT QUARRY, and mail it to the above address as well.

Let it be known hence on that due to all that Bob has been through, anyone out there on the fan boards or the web speaking for Bob other than myself, Tim Sullivan or Kevin Shinnik is not authorized to do so and is speaking out of turn and WITHOUT Bob's permission.

Once again- Blessings to all who have been there with love and support for our dear, dear friend, Robert Quarry.

Mahalo!

BOYCOTT VAMPIRA THE MOVIE (please repost) updated info [06 Feb 2008|12:52pm]

(Note, please forward in bulletins and repost this updated version of the article)

BOYCOTT VAMPIRA THE MOVIE

by Montgomery Brando
2-6-2008
(a Horror Drunx Exclusive)

There has been some buzz about this documentary since the death of Maila Nurmi a.k.a. Vampira... Mostly perpetuated by the films maker. But let me give you the REAL skinny on this film...
..
Vampira The Movie? FUCK THAT.
..
Have you not read the expose articles on this film? They have been out since May of 2007. Some of them are in the blogs of my page. Vampira The Movie is a sham, perpetuated by a liar and a thief. The maker of Vampira The Movie, Kevin Sean Michaels, LIED to Maila Nurmi, telling her that it was to be a documentary about Ed Wood. His reasons for this were many... 1. Because she probably would not have agreed to be in in otherwise. 2. So that he would not have to pay her as much. 3. Because the biggest thief of the Vampira legacy, Cassandra Peterson aka Elvira was involved and had Maila known that she would have gone no place near it.
..
And showing no respect, Kevin Sean Michaels has only gone into overdrive since the death of Maila Nurmi... A shameless self promoter, arriving to even raffle Vampira The Movie items off at a Plan 9 screening meant to raise money for her memorial fund.
..
Maila did not endorse of support this film in any way after she found out the truth. She was horrified. Now, Kevin Sean Michaels apparently has plans to try and film Maila's memorial service so he can tack it onto the DVD and re-issue it as a special edition. That is just unthinkable!
..
Kevin Sean Michaels is the lowest form of scum. DO NOT endorse this picture. Boycott it in the memory of Maila Nurmi. Let her rest in peace.

DO NOT LET THE VULTURES FEED ON THIS BELOVED HORROR ICON!!!

Send your letters of protest to the film maker himself at: http://www.myspace.com/vampiramovie
And via his website: www.vampirathemovie.com

Perhaps MOST importantly, spread the word and educate others by going to the websites for Amazon.com and Oldies.com where they are selling this piece of trash film. Then post this information and perhaps even this article in the reviews section and give it a bad rating.

ALSO: Apparently this film has been nominated for some award at the Rondo awards. Contact them and give them all the reasons that this film should be DISQUALIFIED and REMOVED from the write-in ballot... www.rondoaward.com

VAMPIRA MEMORIAL INFO. (PLEASE REPOST) [22 Jan 2008|01:23am]

firstratedevil
She did not have much at the time of her passing and we want to give her a resting place befitting her and all she gave to the world.

PLEASE help. Even if it is just a dollar every one counts. She was a trailblazer and a magnificent woman and deserves the dignity to lie beside the other stars of her era in the place she loved most...Hollywood.

Maila Nurmi Vampira Memorial Fund [21 Jan 2008|02:56pm]

cuntishness

Many, if not all of us, have heard news of the death of Maila Nurmi, the magnificent woman who created and breathed exquisite life into the unforgettable character, Vampira.

She was a legend, an icon, a figure to be revered. And yet she was a woman, an old woman with a face that could turn tides and change history. I have never known someone so sharp, so biting and filled with so much to give that she simmered beneath her velvety paper-thin skin. Eyes the colour of frost, she had it within her to turn them to you and pour her stories into your soul until she expanded the parameters of who you were entirely. She could turn on you with the quickness and venom of a serpent and make you feel absolutely insignificant. Her warmth and fondness existed in nuance and compliments that required one to pay attention. Her humor, as with all things concerning this lady of vast spirit, was sophisticated and bitter and pointed.

She saw us, each of us that was invited into her controlled life. She viewed us with the eye of a skeptic. Not a victim but someone accustomed to being used and wrenched from all sides, and determined not to allow any such nonsense again. She would open slowly, delicately like the most precious of orchids, filling your senses with a perfume that lingered to haunt you long after your time with her had passed.

She knew the rules and didn't care to follow them. Her path, her expectations of others, her life, was her own. We should all be so fierce, so intelligent and so powerful, to own ourselves, our decisions and failures, and our minds.


She died with little as is usually the case for our dark legendary figures.

Thankfully her niece has given us permission to send her off beautifully.

As for what you can do...Collapse )

Every dollar counts. She deserves the dignity to lie beside the other stars of her era. Please help us in this effort. Thank You.
