Rant!

Okay, so I came back to post another blurb on this blog. I was surfing around and checking out other people's blogs and you know what I have found? A lot!

There are so many different ideas out in the world and it is great to sample some of this by blog browsing (Blogging, blog surfing, blog dipping, what ever the hell you might call it). My blog is a great example, I mean who the hell dedicates a webpage to zombies?

There is most certainly more to talk about than just zombies, so I choose to write a little more on horror in general. One way of looking at my obsession with horror is to realize a little more about where I came from. No, not where I actually came from,(which would be the heart of Houston,Texas) but more like what experiences I have encountered.

I grew up with creature features on late night television all through the late 70's and early 80's. Classic B-movies like "Attack of the Giant Leeches" & "Day of the Triffids". Of course Godzilla was a standard for my entertainment (and still is). But I think that those early exposures and darker readings like Edgar Allen Poe fostered the desire to delve deeper.

One Heavy Metal magazine and a borrowed copy of the original "Halloween" later and I was introduced to my own dark side. Fascinating no? Probably not, but anyway that is how it started and I have much more to tell you...later.

It's awesome that you're exploring blogging. It's very therapeutic and is a great way to learn about yourself. Love the Cure—I think they're coming to Houston soon and Mogwai is opening for them. Anyway, good luck!

Did you ever used to watch "Joe Bob goes to the Drive In"?
It was this great little show that would come on TBS I think on Fri or Sat nights. He would show some old B movie and review it.

Good times....good times...

Every year my son Dylan and I have been building our Halloween animatronic display. This year we added 12 new figures and my wife had been making the clothes etc. but then I clued in that Halloween Costumes were the ideal solution - ya, ok I'm slow but...This year is really cool because we've done an HP Lovecraft display that I'm sure he'd appreciate but I'm not so sure he'd approve of this - The Necronomicon - Is it just me or is that just plain goofy ? Anyway, everybody is doing their own Haunted House thing now but hey - it's fun and if you've got kids I really suggest you try it yourself if you haven't already. It's a nice change from the usual Christmas Lights routine and a lot of scaaarrry fun. Happy Halloween everybody.
