It (1990)

I know it may be surprising for someone like me to have been terrified of clowns as a child. Looking back, I'm sure this is one of the largest reasons why. Tim Curry is in my top five favorite actors of all time and for good reason. He caused me to have to go to therapy as a kid for his role in this movie. I had nightmares that turned into daydreams...and eventually called 911 because I knew I saw Pennywise in my house! (I was six, give me a break) Even now I cringe when he says his famous "They all float" line in this movie. No amount of anti-anxiety meds and counseling sessions can erase that for me.

This is one I don't think I will be showing to my own children for years to come. I haven't been able to watch it in it's entirety in twenty years. When looking for terror...this one is it for me.

Enjoy... It.

Hookers for Jesus

Yes, you read correctly. HOOKERS FOR JESUS!

A few weeks ago, someone showed me this link on facebook then while doing laundry this morning...there is a television show for this! I understand wanting to help women that may have made bad decisions, or been forced into a life of prostitution...but seriously hookers FOR JESUS??? I'm just not comfortable with that. It's like these women are screaming "look at me" by saying they were prostitutes. As if that makes them better or more important in their religious persuits. I don't respect someone more because they went from one extreme to another, but then again, I don't respect many in a religious atmosphere anyway.

I'm posting about this because I don't know if I'm the only person that finds this creepy. Please post your opinions about this in the comments...

Here is the link for Hookers for Jesus. Check it out and see what you think.
