Within the last week on Twitter (@invasionbmovies) I've gotten a whole lot of followers and it's giving me a pretty big head (NOT that one) and I have to wonder what it is I could've done lately to get such a huge following. Then I realize it doesn't matter, I'm HUGE on Twitter. 200 followers, baby! Take THAT Charlie Sheen!
I also wonder if these new followers know anything about me and the website. So here, for all the new people that's found this site, is everything you need to know about Jason Soto and Invasion of the B Movies.
I was born in 1980.
I created the site in 2005.
I had an actual website that I built from the ground up but everybody thought it was the most horrible thing in existence so I closed it down in December 2011.
I created this site you're on here in 2006 (or so) as an off-shoot of The Site, where I talked about other things and reviewed movies that I felt didn't deserve a full review.
In January 2012, I purchased Invasionofthebmovies.net.
My mother was forced to watch "Friday the 13th" back in 1980 and liked the named Jason, hence that's where my name came from.
I currently own over 500 movies, from DVD to VHS.
I also own every episode of "Mystery Science Theater 3000", either on DVD or VHS. The VHS' were taped off of TV DURING THE ACTUAL AIRING. I know, right?
I do a feature at ManILoveFilms.com called "Horror Thursdays" cause whoever came up with the name didn't feel like thinking. Anyway, I review some sort of horror movie every week. It's mildly popular. (In that I'm more popular than the DVD Reviews, but less popular than the "Classic Films" post, so take that for what it's worth.)
I'm friends with the guy who does the DVD Reviews and he knows I'm kidding.
I review any type of bad movie, ones you never heard of, ones you sorta heard of, or ones you've seen and went "OH MY GOD THAT WAS TERRIBLE". Examples include: "Death Bed: The Bed That Eats", "Wiseguys vs Zombies", "Battlefield Earth", and last but not least "Murder Set Pieces".
I HATE "Murder Set Pieces". HATE IT! Read why.
Oh yeah, I'm slowly uploading all my old reviews to an archive blog I made. So keep checking back for that.
I almost prevented the career of Shia LaBeouf.
I've only met three celebrites: Seth Green, the lead singer of Gym Class Heroes, and of course Tommy Wiseau. (Yes, I'm saying the lead singer of Gym Class Heroes is a celebrity. Leave me alone.)
I'm from a city in Indiana called East Chicago, which is...well you can figure it out. But since people think I'm saying "Chicago" anyway, I just tell them I am from Chicago and leave it at that.
I moved to Indianapolis in 2008.
I work at a "huge" "office" "supply" store that rhymes with Craples. I sorta like my job but I sorta don't. But whatever.
I'm leaving out huge personal things cause I don't wanna get unneeded sympathy or make people think I'm seeking attention. But with that said, I like big butts and I cannot lie. You other brothers, you can't deny.
I like any kind of rock music, a lot of metal, and mainly anything from the '90s. But for whatever reason, I seem to have the guilty pleasure of liking what's called "chick rock". I never really thought about it until my future wife pointed it out and yeah I guess so. This includes Natalie Imbruglia, Fiona Apple, Sheryl Crow, and even though I admit it's a horrible song, this song by Sara Bareilles.
Dear lord that video is awful.
I also know all the words to Taylor Swift's "You Belong With Me" but I blame my job for that.
I have a podcast called "The Lair of the Unwanted". I have a co-host named Nolahn and he has a website called Bargain Bin Review. The story of him being on the podcast is funny. He joins up on the LAMB and asks if anyone seen this list of horrible movies. I was the only one who had (well that's probably not true but whatever) so I checked out his site and realized he had similar tastes to me. So out of the blue I emailed him and said "Hey, you don't know me, but you wanna do a podcast together?" and he said "Sure" and we never looked back.
I use to do a video series called "Jason Made A Video" where I just filmed myself doing weird things and talking to stuffed animals. It was....strange. Now, I'm mainly on Nick Jobe's Vlog.
I'm never going to live this video down:
True story, people from the "Step Up" franchise took that video seriously. Yeah, I don't know why.
I once shot a man in Reno just to watch him die.
Ok that's not true.
And a whole bunch of other stuff but I'm gonna stop there. Anyway, thanks for following along and I promise I'll have more reviews in the near future. Just keep an eye out! Or a spleen. What is a spleen anyway? Hm.
