This Week's Movie You've Probably Never Seen
Ernest Scared Stupid (1991)
While most of us remember Jim Varney from his work on the popular television series Pink Lady and Jeff, it turns out he made a couple of these Ernest movies too. Who knew?
This one is the aptly named Ernest Scared Stupid and in celebration of Halloween week here at Sly Records, we present it here for your pleasure.
As you can see, Daily Variety called it "wacky." Oh, this must be the one where Ernest acts like a retarded jackass. I heard about this one!
This Week's Record You're Probably Not Listening To
Jad & David Fair - 26 Monster Songs for Children (1998)
A great Halloween album for the kiddies, this one features a bunch of spooky ballads about Godzilla, Jabberwockies, and the Invisible Man.
And it's on Kill Rock Stars, so you have to act like you're into it, even if you're not.
