Challah, Ya'll!

Challah In The Family?

Well, kids - it looks like we here at Madblood Manorette have, yet again, suffered through another bout of Passover.. And by that we mean to say: yet another month has Passed Over without nary a new Episode of The Son of Madblood! We do apologize. Apologize, we do. Things have been a little on edge around here at Madblood Manorette - causing us to go MIA of late. You see, Passover ran a little loooong and late for us over here, this year - all because that Igor goy stole the Afikoman and demanded we sit through the entire DVD series of Lipstick Jungle as his "reward" for returning it. And Passover ain't over til you get that Afikoman back.... And Passover ain't over til you've heard this:

the end has a real pay-off, believe me.. and believe Breaking Down Mechitzas!

Luckily - the entire run of Lipstick Jungle only lasted a scant two seasons and Igor returned the Afikomen none the worse for wear. This despite the fact that he wore it his underwear the whole time. Afikomen returned - we all ate of it heartily - washing it down with one last glass of Manischewitz. So, now that we've got that High-Holiday under our belts and the back-up of Matzo out of our "system" - now that we've done our "business" - it's time to get back to the bidness of the bidness that is The Son of Madblood...

The Son of Madblood gets down to business...

That's right, kids - the April Golden Showers of the past are about to spring forth with some new May Flowers - and, what do May Flowers bring? Hay fever? Perhaps... But - what else can cause the watering eyes and discomfort that accompanies said Hay Fever? That's right - it's the fever for more of The Son of Madblood! So - get your hankies out.. because another Episode is in the works! The time is ripe, once again... and so are the jokes... Ripe.. Ripe and ready... Ready for ACTION! Are you ready for action? Get ready for some action - The Son of Madblood's got action... Action for you..

now that's what we call: ACTION! come 'an git some....

And what should you, our faithful fan(s), hope to expect for the next thrilling(ish) Episode? Besides "not much"? Let's just say that The Son of Madblood has learned a lot over these past months... He's learned that he's got a lot of questions that have been nagging at his already addled mind. Nagging at him in a way that Brain could only hope to one day nag. Raised in an Orphanage - growing up - as he did - an Orphan all his life - with all the questions that beset such an Orphan; The Son of Madblood, an Orphan, only knows that which every Orphan knows: that he knows nothing of what non-Orphans would know as "family". So - journey along with this lost man - this Orphan of the ages - as he seeks to discover, plumbs the depths to uncover - his roots..and, hopefully, doesn't kill the tree in so doing... Sounds absolutely thrilling(ish) - does it not? Well, ok - fine.. To make it even MORE thrilling(ish) - we have, for YOU, the famous(ish) "What Do YOU Want To See On The Next Episode?" viewers choice poll where YOU can thrill to one of these:

click 'em to see 'em real good! If YOU dare....

What will it be? YOU decide! These are but suggestions brought to you through the toil and sweat of the Gang at Madblood Manorette and their late-night-up-all-nights toiling and sweating to find YOU only the choicest of choices. Just go to the sidebar (on the SIDE there) under the Tinnitis Treats (brought to you with love and toil and sweat from the Gang at Madblood Manorette) and take your pick of the pick of the litter! No refuse here: Director Donald Cammell's mind-bending Julie Christie sci-fi/horror show of unplanned Motherhood, Demon Seed; Troma's traumatically torturous celebration of Mother's Day; Wes Craven's seminal cannibal bacchanale, The Hills Have Eyes; Tobe Hooper's hopped-up-horrific carnivale, The Funhouse; or, his outta-the-gate and straight for your throat home-is-where-the-heart-is ripped out and eaten by a family of freaks only a (dead) Mother could love, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre. So - get over to that sidebar on the side and vote for the "family horror" that YOU Want To See On The Next Episode! Or, if making a decision isn't your forte - vote for more than one! It's allowed... Because we care. For YOU. And - if NONE of these is to your liking - send us a "family horror" choice of your own via the comments feature at the bottom of this post - just knock on the door, anytime. Because we do care. For YOU. Because, at The Son of Madblood, we are all Family... Whether YOU like it or not...

The family that plays together...plays together...?

And if there's one thing The Son of Madblood knows about "family" - it's that they can count on each other, rely on each others help and input, be there for each other... And, if the scant two votes we got for the last "What Do YOU Want To See On The Next Episode" poll is any indication - The Son of Madblood has got himself one very small family. So, please - join us... Join us! We won't ask you for money - we won't ask for your soul - we won't even ask you to take out the trash! All we ask is that you bare with us - or bare with us, if so inclined - until the next Episode of The Son of Madblood finally hits "the boards" at Madblood Manorette. It'll be a Celebration, we promise you that. It'll be just like having Chametz before Passover has finally ended. Take it from the guys in Kol Ish:

Take that to your mouth...

And take your mouth to the next Episode of The Son of Madblood! We are Chametz! Or, is it: We are Chametz? We beg to differ that there is no difference...
