Meggin Menzel : The Website
My name is Meggin Menzel, I like cooking, shooting, golfing, movies, playing cards, repairing stuff, swimming, hunting, and tv. I love heavy metal music especially black and death metal. I do not care for Social Media, nor its control over content. This is why I created this website. Plus it's awesome to have your own site.
The purpose of this Website is to talk about interesting crap that I want to share with the world, My site is currently and will always be under construction. I do not really care for Facebook, twitter, or Instagram. I'm glad that I am no longer part of that. It seems that there is too much Groupthink with things these days.
Groupthink is dangerous. People should probably stop vying for the approval of others (I also think that this is not something that is healthy behavior). I Now have a comments section on my website. I am not looking for a reaction, I am just wanting to share things that I like
In other words, my words are not censored or able to be changed by another individual. The internet, early on, was about freedom of speech. It was about connecting people in the world to eachother. I met (electronically) a lot of interesting folks from around the world back then when I was on the library computer as a young pup of 18.
Back then I thought the internet was a great meeting place for people of all walks of life and nationalities. Now I realize most of the platforms are to divide people and conquer them, not unite them. It is a disappointment indeed.
Dark Funeral and Belphagor are really excellent as well
TV and Movies
I like the Prisoner it is one of my favorite television series. Hellraiser movies are also awesome. The Phantasm is great. I have watched all of the Phantasm movies. Watching movies and TV is really kool. Spelling Kool with a "K" is also awesome.
Here is a list of my Favorites:
Movies and TV that are Lame in my opinion
Blair Witch project
Dirty Dancing (I thought this one would be Dirtier, but I was horribly disappointed, no nudity or Anything)
Kung Fu Mummy ( I like Mummies and Kung Fu movies so naturally I assumed this would be good, but yeah.....
Sharknado (Lame, but i totally liked this one!!!)
The Last Holiday
Eat Pray Love
Any Woody Allen movie
Hugh Grant movies in general
Romantic Comedies in general
Shaky camera movies (movies designed to nauseate the audience with horrible camera angles and serious lack of Steady Cam)
Sad movies (Life is sad enough as it is, no one needs that shit)
Annoyingly accepting of Everything movies
TV shows that are not funny even though the commercial announcer says that they are.
TV shows that were funny in the past, but continue to get too serious and thus killing the series (hopefully)
Having a woman Dr. Who (sorry folks, the Doctor was a dude, and I'd like to keep him that way, stop trying to re-invent shit please)(I have nothing against chicks, as I am in fact one, but I do not think they did her acting career any favors)
Anything bashing people or ideas that I hold in high esteem
"Love Accidentally"(Actually have never watched it but the previews look retarded. The chick on it is ridiculous, it would be better if she accidentally texted a serial killer, that would have made a better movie.
Any movie that attempts to re-write the facts of history by the use of pure exaggeration and fiction.
Novels and Books
The Gunslinger series is awesome
Lawrence Block books are good too, I like Borderline, and lots of other hard case crime novels. Red Dragon is a wonderful book by Thomas Harris who also wrote Silence of the Lambs. If I am not careful I am going to start typing about movies instead of books. I used to have an HR Giger Necronomicon book, I sold it a long time ago, it is now about 400 bucks, and I'm definitely not going to spend that much money on one book. Even my love for his paintings cannot make me part with that much bread. Robert Heinlein is awesome too. Frank and Robert Herbert are amazing writers. Books about serial killers are good. The Killer book of Serial Killers. I have like a thousand books i think. The Cask of Amontillado is one of my favorite stories as well as The Pit and the Pendulum, Edgar Allen Poe is awesome even though he married his cousin I think. I'm currently reading the other Lawrence Block book that is in the library. Ironically, the book is called The Burglar in the Library.
When I was a kid I read most of the Websters Unabridged dictionary. I usually tried to look up rude words or look at the pictures in the middle, but I learned a lot. Also, have a serious love for Maps and Atlases. Recently, on a trip to Walmart, I purchased the new 2022 USA Rand McNally Road Atlas. I never leave home without the Road Atlas. It is an amazing book. Electronic maps do not hold a fuckin candle to the Almighty Atlas.
The overview on electronic maps, especially when viewed from a smartphone, is absolute rubbish. Electronics break, maulfunction, lose signals, and are just plain Boring. Smartphones are useful tools, but they have their drawbacks (as with any piece of technology).
