Good Times

Happy National Candy Cane Day!

Unfortunately for me, my familia did not buy any this year. Sad day. But you guys will celebrate in my honor, right?

I got many a lovely thing for Christmas this year, including a ton of coffee. The one I'm most excited about?

Apple Caramel Pie. Doesn't that sound delicious???

I also got a digital recorder from my folks for my paranormal group, but due to some issues I don't know if I'll be able to use it... :'(

Since my sister asked for an Xbox, I inherited her Wii and got one of my favorite games to go along with it. It even came with a cd. Hooray for free music!!

Yet, now I'm hoping for the day my sister wants a different game console. That would mean I would then inherit this...

And we would all live happily ever after. 

Yes. Indeed. I love CoD. I am awful at it, but 'tis fun. 

What goodies did my droogies get? Do tell.

So This Is Christmas

Almost That Time Again...

When I was younger, we had a shit ton of VHS tapes. Most of them were Bugs Bunny related, but we had a few Christmas themed ones too. This was my favorite holiday cartoon of them all.

Sadly, I lost it when my family decided to get rid of the VHS player in favor of DVDs, and all the VHS tapes went to the trash. Needless to say, I was not a happy camper that day. Thank God for YouTube, eh?

I can't really pinpoint the exact reason I absolutely love this cartoon. Maybe it's the song. Maybe it's the orphans and how they tug mercilessly at my few heart strings. Maybe it's the old man who slightly reminds of Robert Englund for some odd reason. All I know is I keep coming back to this every year. 

Makes me feel all warm and cuddly inside, and all that jazz. 

Now, off to prepare for a night of games, hot coco, family, friends, and possibly a few drinks somewhere along the way. 

Have a fun and safe Christmas Eve, droogs.

My Cat. Every Christmas.

Always trying to ruin my tree.

First official day of winter! I'm doing good by wrapping presents and knitting. What is everyone else's solstice plans??

Self Given Goodies

My Christmas shopping is not done, presents are still waiting to be wrapped, and Christmas is only five days away. Plus my internet has been incredibly slow (which does eliminate some procrastination). BUT, I did get some goodies for myself that I feel I will quite enjoy this winter break.

The Orphanage. Picked this up in the $5 bin at Walmart. I've been meaning to see it, since I've discovered I'm a fan of Del Toro's work, but never had the chance or couldn't find it. 

This.... oh.... this. I was so excited when I found this version of Sweeney Todd. It is one of my favorites. I was looking for the movie version with Johnny Depp for my sister's Christmas present and ended up finding this instead. I've seen it a few times before via YouTube, and am very happy to now have my own, physical copy. 

I meant to see Priest when it came out in theaters, but was too busy at the time. Paul Bettany is one of my favorite actors to watch, and I much enjoyed his roles in The Da Vinci Code and Legion (both of which I own). Just one more vampire flick to add to the collection.

Christmas music! (As if I needed any more). 

The view outside. Hoping it we get more for Christmas. It will the be the first time in several years we've gotten snow.

I Love You Guys

2000 views, and my blog isn't even a year old. Droogs, I never expected so much. You guys make me happy.

This calls for another GIF.

Here's to another 2000 more, eh?

After finals are over, I swear there will be more posts. Just have been a bit busy lately.

The Past Two Weeks of My Life

As a college student.... THIS ^^^^

I have been working on this philosophy paper for the past month and it's still not done. There is only so much I can say about the existence of God. I swear, every argument ever fought is in my little paper. Cosmological, teleological, anthropological, ontological... well, not the scientific argument, since it's not "philosophical" and all. Still. I have been to the library more times in these past two weeks than all my years combined. I have neglected other finals to work on this paper. I have stayed up until two in the morning working on this thing. Starbucks must love me by now. 

All I can say, is that I cannot wait until the end of this week.

World Choral Day

Ah, choral music. The stuff that gets me through writing papers. Surprisingly good for my concentration too. Three more pages and I'm done.

Hilarity Ensues

Okay, so this isn't really Creepmas related, but it is hilarious.

Because we all know that's exactly how it went down.

Also, three cheers for National Cookie Day!!

Hip hip hooray!

Creepmas Tree

As my apartment is tiny and I have limited funds, my mother so kindly gave me a small little tree. Little did she know how it would be decorated.

I think it's adorable. I'm waiting to get little tiny present to put around the bottom too.

How is everyone else's Creepmas decroations going?

The Argument for Children Not to Believe in Santa Clause

I love Tales from the Crypt. It is probably one of my favorite television shows ever, even though it's not on anymore. So when I saw this video over on the official Creepmas blog, I was immediately reminded of the second episode of season one.

Here are all three parts, via the great YouTubes, for your enjoyment:

Song of the Week

"Eifersucht" by Rammstein. 

I'm feeling rather German this week. Plus the NBA is finally out of the lockout. More Dirk for me. Yay...

And I get to attend an investigation at the Hill House Manor this weekend in Gainsville. Damn all my classwork until then. 

Tuesday, November 22, 2011


One of the photos I took at High Water Mark in Gettysburg. Fucking LOVE that place. Very inspiring, and a lot of great photography opportunities. I'm hoping to go back there someday.

If you want to see a few other of my pictures, and a couple sub par drawings, head over to my DeviantART page.  Maybe even buy a print if you feel the need to.

Hint hint nudge nudge.

Down Time

I haven't been posting like I should, I know, I know. But this semester is starting to come to a close, which mean more tests, longer essays, and less blogging. Sad day, but Thanksgiving is coming up, so I foresee break time. Also, I'm slowly preparing for Creepmas, which is sure to be fun.

So you guys forgive me right? Of course you do, droogies.

Cover of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre comic book, by Tim Bradstreet, I believe. Awesome? I think so.

This Always Gets Me

Never fails to put a smile on my face...

"With Arms Wide Open" by Creed... the literal video version.

I never really liked Creed at all. But this... is hilarious.

For Letting Us File Our Fangs

Happy birthday to Bram Stoker!

He would have been 114 today. 

A brilliant man, if I'm allowed to say so.

You Guys.

Oh, my, god. You guys. Seriously.

My thoughts?


Release date is Feburary 3, 2012 (at the moment). That shit is going on my calender. I have no idea what this movie is about, and I want to see it. LOVE me some Victorian-esque Gothic horror.

Plus, it's Daniel Radcliffe's first role out of Harry Potter and it's a horror movie. Makes me like him even more. 

What do you guys think?

EDIT: Just discovered it was based on a book. Yay for discovering new reading material!!

Tuesday, November 1, 2011


Halloween is officially over. There's decorations to take down, costumes to put away, and it's back to focusing on the school work I've been slightly neglecting. *sigh*

I must admit, I had a grand old time scaring people at the bridge last night, and even joined forces with another group with the same intentions to frighten people. Needless to say, my sinuses now hate me, but that's the small price to pay for wonderful, ghoulish memories. 

To ease myself out of the Halloween mood, tonight I'm attempting to watch All The King's Men (2006). It's been in my queue for about a month now, so I feel it's time to get to it.

Alright, alright, you got me. Honestly, the only reason I am watching this is because I know Jackie Earle Haley plays a small part in it, and he's slowly turning into one of my favorite actors. I'm not big on political films. Although I did find Frost/Nixon surprisingly good. 

Anyone else feeling the effects of Halloween ending? Anyone already planning for next year?

Today is All Saints' Day. My saint of choice for this year is Saint Patrick. 

Monday, October 31, 2011

It's Here!

Happy Halloween, everybody!

Marilyn Manson's cover of "This is Halloween" from A Nightmare Before Christmas.

Hope you guys are having fun! Don't die.

Shivering In Antici...


It's almost here, my droogies. One more night and Halloween will unleash its... er, Halloween-ness. Today will be the final movie night, as I am not planning to watch movies on dear Samhain. No, I have more sinister plans.

Yep. I shoved aside John Carpenter's Halloween for Trick 'r Treat. But I like the concept of a movie actually about Halloween better than a movie that just happens to take place on Halloween. As you could probably guess, this is one of my favorite holiday themed movies. It's original, clever, and gives Halloween an awesome mascot in a way. My future children better prepare to be dressed up as Sam. 

The animated short the film is based on:

C'mon guys, someone has to give him some candy!

I'm excited. Tomorrow, I'm wearing my Freddy Krueger sweater to class. Since it has also been chilly the last couple of days, it's doubling as a source of warmth. Then I'm changing into a black robe and heading for an old haunted bridge on the other side of town with a couple of friends. Why? It's Halloween. People will go there to get scared. I feel obliged help them achieve their goal. It should be fun. 

What is everyone else's plans? Trick or treating? Handing out candy? Awesome parties?

An Obvious One, Really

I predict that today will be a rather unproductive day. Watching The Rocky Horror Picture Show until five in the morning is not recommended, although I'll admit, it is a lot of fun.

But that's not my movie today. We're heading for the classic hills today, with a movie that's on EVERY Halloween movie list. 

That's no Dr. Frank n Furter. 

I was originally planning to use this as the final movie, but then I remembered another film that was a better fit to the Halloween season. Not that this one is any less, but it's focus isn't on the holiday itself. Still a great movie. 

Great. Now I have the Time Warp stuck in my head. 

Friday, October 28, 2011

So Close!!!

Happy Frankenstein Friday, everyone! Halloween is in three days, plans have been made, costumes set out. It's going to be a grand old time.

Until then, I'll get myself in an extra good mood, starting with something fun: Hocus Pocus (1993).

This is probably one of my favorite Disney movies, honestly. It enough to get a yearly spot on the Disney Channel, and I own it on DVD. No, I do not watch the Disney Channel. 

Regardless, I think any Halloween movie marathon should have this included. It's fun, not too scary, and has both witches and a zombie. As everyone knows, zombies are apparently a hot item these days. Why, I don't know. I think it has something to do with the downfall of vampires thanks to sparkles.

"American Witch" by Rob Zombie. Seriously, you guys. How is Rob Zombie so awesome???

So ready for Monday to get here. For once, the weekend is getting in the way....

Thursday, October 27, 2011


Skipping movie night again. Class until five. Bleh.

Until then, how would you like to be this guy?

Some More Ghostly Goings On

Since tonight is Ghost Hunters night, here's the newest video from my paranormal group, Waxing Crescent Paranormal:

Weird. Couldn't figure it out at the time, still trying to at the moment.

No Escape

I realize my Halloween Horror Movie List for 2011 is slowly becoming saturated with vampire flicks. But bear with me here. I own a lot.

30 Days of Night is probably one of my favorite vampire films ever. Why? Because these ain't your mama's vamps. Nah, this is going back to Nosferatu. Terrifying. Not the kind of vampire you want hanging around your bedroom at night. Unless you're into monsters with three inch nails and mouth full of sharp teeth. I won't judge.

Nor are they prim and proper vampires either, drinking blood from wine glass and laughing at those silly werewolves down the road. No, these guys don't give a shit about dry cleaning. There is blood all over the fucking place.

Let it also be known the graphic novel is just as amazing. There's actually a series. However, I've only gotten to the third one. This film is just the first book. 

Because I can't find another vampire song to suit my tastes, you get to enjoy some old school White Zombie:

"I'm Your Boogieman" by White Zombie

One of the vampire from 30 Days of Night. Honest to God, I thought it was Marilyn Manson the first time he appeared onscreen. I was all, "WTF is Manson doing in this movie?????" But it's not Manson. It's just some guy named John Rawls. *shrugs*

Less than a week, guys. LESS THAN A WEEK!!!!

I'm Going to Need Some More Cages....

...because I don't know how many more imaginary monsters I can fit in my imaginary basement. Here's another one for my collection:

Look at it. Don't you just want to give it a hug and invite it in for tea and cakes? It's just as cute as a bunny rabbit and a kitten playing with a box. 

Ok, ok, I exaggerate. Nothing is as cute as kittens.

But Pumpkinhead is one of my favorite monsters, no doubt. Not as high as the Creeper, but within range.

Now I wish to draw your attention to something I noticed this morning. But before I go on, I want to make note, I'm good at doing the laundry. Just not when it involves beach. Although, while brushing my teeth this morning, my lack of ability to use the beach makes for some interesting... art, shall we say?

At first glance, a normal person just might see a stain and a need for a higher degree of laundry learning. Not me. I saw a skull.

Like Jesus on a piece of toast, I got a skull on my towel. Thank you, pareidolia!

"Monster" by Skillet. It works, right?

Creature Feature's Newest Single

"Mommy's Little Monsters" by Creature Feature

One more for the playlist, eh?

Hellyeah is still MIA. They're working on an album, I know. But I'm dying for a listen.

They Whisper to Each Other, And Then Cry

House on Haunted Hill (1959)

Vincent Price. Woot woot!

And with a new "Ghost Adventures" on tonight, I'm feeling a little ghastly.

"Grim Grinning Ghosts" by our dear old Disney.

Ghost on the stairway of the National Museum in Greenwich, England. Caught by a reverend, nonetheless!!

What Music They Make...


I think it should be fitting that tonight's movie is 1931's Dracula.

A beautiful classic. One that defined vampires as suave, sexy, well dressed creatures of the night. And no sparkles. We should all do ourselves a favor and go watch it. 

Wednesday, October 19, 2011

Thou Shall Not Fall

Feeling a bit off this week. I think it's the exam I have tomorrow, but one can't be sure. This should be a happy day. Ghost Hunters is on tonight. Until then...

Ahh. The Lost Boys. The movie that started my quiet love of Kiefer Sutherland. Complete with the late 80's vibe and vampires that don't sparkle. Lovely! 

Not to mention it contains one of my favorite songs of the 80's:

"Cry Little Sister" by Gerard McMann

Which, in turn, had led to some awesome covers...

"Cry Little Sister" by Seasons After

So it's an all around great movie in my book.

What are you guys watching tonight?

The Remains of the Day

Feeling a little lovably spooky today. I think this calls for some Tim Burton. Yes, another one. But I must make it quick since I have a pile of books a mile high that need to be conquered.

Now, I know what you're thinking, "Why didn't she pick A Nightmare before Christmas instead?" Because that would be too obvious, that's why. And Corpse Bride has a shit ton of skeletons. Can you say awesome?

Does anyone else think Victor looks like a grown up Vincent?

I think it is. The proof is undeniable.

"Living Dead Girl" by Rob Zombie

Fitting, don't you think?

Welcome to the Grave

I actually went to sleep early last night, only to be woken up at 3:30 in the morning by some crazy ass chick across the street screaming at her (presumably) boyfriend. That's pretty freaking loud. And this is the second time it's happened. Isn't that disturbing the peace, or something?

Moving on...

I present the movie of the night:

Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (2002)

This is one of m y favorite movies ever, probably right underneath Session 9. I even have the soundtrack somewhere in my massive cd collection. Favorite song? Either "Epiphany" or "A Little Priest." And now that I think about it, Mrs. Lovett sounds like an awesome costume for this Halloween. Hmm...

"Death for the Dead" by SPF1000. I know I'm posting a lot of SPF1000, but they're just so fucking awesome and so underrated. I wish they were still together to make more albums like this. Alas, 'tis not so. 

"What's dead is dead, and life is for the alive, my dear." ~ Mrs. Lovett

Raise Your Hands. Bring the Hell.

Usually my post titles refer to something within the post. This time, I just happen to be listening to Drowning Pool while writing this.

If I get to it, tonight's movie is The Ring (2002).

I don't know if I would qualify this as one of my favorites, but I love this movie. It's one of my go-to horror movies when I want to watch something but I can't decided what to watch and I don't want to get into anything new. I honestly think I watch it just for the part where Samara crawls out of the TV. What would happen if you were in the electronic section in Wal-Mart or in Best Buy when that happened? Would she come out of the TV closest to you, or would a bunch of Samaras come out of all the TVs? If its the latter, that would fucking suck

The Ring also contributes to my favorite scene in Scary Movie 3

I probably laughed harder than I needed to the first time I saw that. 

I've finally started putting decorations in the kitchen, even though there is little to put there (being a college student, I have a tiny budget). 

Dracula, who likes to watch me cook. 

A spider candle holder, which I received from my mother last year. 

A robed skeleton hanging above my sink. 

More candle holders I've obtained in the past few years. 

The year round jack o lantern with his friend the owl. 

At last, but far from least, the half eaten bag of candy corn. Except it will be empty by the time Halloween gets here. 

Sidenote, I finally received my book I ordered off of Amazon a few weeks ago in the mail today (I really shouldn't be on that site when I'm bored and waiting for class to start). Hooray!

I've been wanting to read this for some time now, especially since my summer trip to Savannah (that place is absolutely AMAZING. I recommend a visit). The book is used and a little worn, but that just means it's living a good, loved life.

Where'd You Get Those Peepers?

Late homework nights are killing my social life. Not to mention my sleeping habits. Two cups of coffee and I'm back to being tired. Gonna have to find something stronger.

Tonight's movies: Jeepers Creepers (2001) and Jeepers Creepers 2 (2003).

Personally, I like the second better than the first, but mostly for the fact that I like the Creeper's style a little better. Like Billy the ventriloquist dummy in Dead Silence, I wish I had a Creeper in my basement (first I have to get a basement). Given the fact he won't eat me, of course.

Keeping the in Creeper vein, I thought today's song should (obviously) be the one from the second trailer, because it fits so well.

"Meet the Creeper" by Rob Zombie

I also want to make a quick mention of the awesome Halloween paper plates I found and acquired recently.

From the Dollar Tree, we have matching cups and plates, a dollar per pack. 

And for $1.50, we have a pack of sturdy, haunted house plates. Adorable, no?

I'm almost sad I have to use them, because they'll soon be gone...

I leave you here, as another cup of coffee is calling my name. 

Screenshot from Jeepers Creepers 2. It makes a beautiful background...

What What

Today's my birthday!!!


Yeeeeaaaahhhh booooiiiii!!!! No longer a teenager and I still can't (legally) drink. Bummer...

I'm suppose to be getting some sort of surprise today, so all day I've been absolutely paranoid that a mariachi band would suddenly appear out of nowhere and start singing to me. I'm safely in my apartment now, but I'm not sure if that will help much...

In honor of this day with I claim as my own, I'm going to watch my favorite horror movie of all time: Session 9 (2001).

I'll admit, the movie is a bit confusing and a little slow for some people, but it's creepy all the same. It keeps you guessing until the end, or, at least, keeps you second guessing yourself even when you think you've already figured it out. I LOVE IT. It took me a watch or two to get over the fact that David Caruso of "CSI: Miami" is in it, but I've come to absolutely adore Session 9. To me, 'tis beautiful, especially the creepy voice over ending. Plus, I love, love, love asylum movies. Shutter Island? Yeah, I was all over that one. But that's another post for another time.

"The Wicked" by SPF1000. The first time I ever heard this song was a couple years ago. I had bought the album off of iTunes (sadly, the only place I could find it), and started listening to it that night. This song came on a little after midnight. I was by myself with the lights turned off and the rain coming down outside. I had to turn it off because I was starting to creep myself out. Yeah...

Guess Who's Back

While this weekend did not go exactly as planned (do they ever?), I got plenty of pre-birthday goodies to show you, but first, today's movie.

Dead Silence is one of my favorite movies. It's very creepy, unexpected, and I want a Billy doll of my own. He's adorable. That's not weird, right? Right.

Anywho, I didn't get to go to the corn maze due to rain, so I ended up just shopping all Saturday.

I got a new stereo since my old one's speakers finally gave out. Plus, I can play my iPod on this one. And yes, I do still listen to cds.

My lovely mother bought me a mat for outside my door. I believe she got it at Wal-Mart.

Another pillow for my ugly couch. It also came with a purple throw.

Window clings...

I got this really awesome looking candle holder at Michael's. It was under the Halloween section, but I think it looks nice enough to be put out all year round.

For my few non Halloween presents...

From my sister. She got them at Hastings.

Also from my sister. I'm not actually a basketball fan per se. I just like Dirk Nowitzki.

I had taken a picture of my cake before it was mutilated and eaten, but it seems to have mysteriously disappeared from my phone. It was Halloween themed too.

On the music side of things...

I checked my mailbox right before I left, and much to my joy, found my signed Rufus Rex cd within. Hooray! I was so excited I went out and bought Anthrax's new album the next day.

Er, that's not exactly why I bought Anthrax. I've been waiting to have money to get it.

"Worlds In-Between" by Rufus Rex

"The Devil You Know" by Anthrax

You gotta go with the devil you know...
