In this episode of Geek Me Five, host Montez McCrary will be discussing the interesting history and legacy of horror icon Jason Voorhees of the ‘Friday the 13th’ series in five, easy-to-follow points.
**UPDATE (4/15/2015)** Here is a first-hand experience of Jason the Terrible from Google+ user David Zak, who commented on this story:
“I use to go to stampede wrestling in Edmonton with my brother, and when Jason The Terrible came to the ring I would almost sh*t my pants. I was terrified of Jason, and i was just a kid then. Maybe that had something to do with me being terrified of him. I just wanted to share that with you.”
ORIGINAL STORY: Just…let that sink in….Okay? So, yeah. Jason the Terrible was the Friday the 13th wrestler and wrestled in a hockey mask, which probably shouldn’t have been legal (copyrights, trademarks, and all that jazz). It’s kinda hard to punch a guy wearing a protective mask, PLUS his finishing move was a flying headbutt WITH THE MASK ON. Jeez, I guess you could get away with ANYTHING in Canada outside of swerving a member of the Hart wrestling family. Maybe take a cue from the indy circuit and bring a fake, invisible and imaginary gun to the ring and shoot your opponents. It’s fine; make sure you apologize to them for fake shooting them afterwards.

Are you still hankering for some residuals of some Halloween goodness, love video games and music based on said past-time of gaming? Well then good sir/ma’am, Phoenix-based rapper Random (a.k.a. Mega Ran) and Richie Branson released the Halloween-themed The Ghouls ‘n Ghosts EP. Essentially it’s a collection of song collaborations from various other albums,in addition of a couple of new tracks, including the titular “Ghouls ‘n Ghosts” that, of course, is inspired by the infuriatingly difficult classic game from the so-called “Mega Man Haters” (as declared by numerous angry gamers online), Capcom.
