Every October, I get into the spirit of the devilishly delightful holiday by watching copious amounts of Halloween programing and this year will be no different. There are so many shows out there this year for us Halloweenites to watch.
This year the Travel Channel will have a very spectacular lineup of shows. They actually started their Halloween programing during September and tonight they continue their head start on October with the season premiere of Making Monsters. Making Monsters chronicles the work of Ed Edmunds and his company, Distortions Unlimited as they make some of the most innovative animatronics and masks in the industry. The channel will present two back-to-back episodes weekly on Sundays starting at 8pm, so get that DVR ready.
On Monday, October 1, Sci-Fi (or Syfy if you must) starts its own 31 Days of Halloween event. It starts with the Midseason finale of Warehouse 13 at 9pm, which I admit I have never seen. On Tuesday, Face-Off, a reality TV makeup artist challenge, starts at 9pm followed by the extreme design challenge series Hot-Set at 10pm from executive Producers Michael Agbabian, Dwight Smith, and Aliyah Silverstein, who are also responsible for Face-Off. They round out the week with Ghost Hunters, Paranormal Witness, Haven, Queen of the Damned and Primal.
Never to be outdone, the Disney Channel and Disney Junior are holding October Halloween Events. They are calling their event Monstober over at DisneyChannel.com. Starting on October 1, there will be hours of excellent programing. They will screen Mostly Ghostly: Who Let the Ghosts out on Monday at 8:30pm. There is a My Babysitter is a Vampire marathon on Thursday, October 4, 2012. The Halloween themed season premiere of Austin and Ally on Sunday, October 7 follows the great lineup that started the week. Later in the month they’ll be premiering Girl vs. Monster. Over on Disney Junior they will have Boo for You Fridays with Halloween themed episodes and movies every Friday on Disney Jr.
Every day at 6pm from Monday October 1 to Thursday October 4th, Hub, in it’s Haunted Hub Halloween event and contest, will play a creepy episode of one of R.L. Stein’s Haunting Hour or Goosebumps. Over at FEARnet, which is Halloween central, Will play a 2 hour block of Tales from the Crypt, every Friday during October starting on Friday, October 5 at 10 pm.
There will be more frightening programming to come next week, so I bid you, Happy Hauntings until next time.
For the first edition of ReCast It Wednesday I’ve chosen to ReCast She-Ra: Princess of Power. I’ve chosen some pretty dynamic people for this tho I think you will have your own choices.
I enjoy watching Drop Dead Diva even if the show is insanely stupid drivel and I think that April Bowlby who plays Stacy would be a nice fit for She-Ra, she’s very fierce and has a sweet and innocent side that would work well for both Adora and She-Ra. For Hordak, I chose Tom Hardy because I think his muscular build and ability to be very shady from his work in Warrior would work well, tho It might have been good for me to have gone older. Glimmer, I chose Katy Perry because I liked how heroic she seemed in the video for her song Wide Awake. Finally I chose Sofia Vergara for Shadow Weaver because of her work in Modern Family and how motherly she can be while at the same time she has a nice mean streak when she doesn’t get her way. plus i think he’s d be the only one that would look super awesome in what is basically a Snuggly.
What do you think, would you make different choices? What other spots would you fill and with whom?

It’s a really great movie and everyone will enjoy it. Come Join it’s live now, I’ve made it a full on experience.
At 8:30 pm tomorrow I’m going to set up another livestream with A Muppet Christmas Carol. You can watch the video below. I remember being taken to see this movie by my aunt when I was in middle school or elementary school, I’m trying to see which makes me less creepily old.
It was really fun last time and I hope that more people come by to enjoy the festivities. There will be some music playing before hand and some surprises during the showing. So I hope everyone comes along in a happy way for you. Looking forward to seeing you soon. Visit here, but I will post a reminder a half hour before showtime.
Do you have any requests for the New Year? I’ll still do reviews but maybe every other week we can all watch a movie? What movie are you interested in watching in the future?
Today I wanted to do something a little different for Movie Mondays.
I set up a live stream account and would love to watch Emmet Otter’s Jug-Band Christmas with all my readers. Just click this link to be taken right to the livestream webcast. I think it will be really fun. the movies only about 40 or 50 minutes so it’s a nice hour long spectacle. The Showing will begin at 9:30pm EST. That’s 6:30pm PST if you are on the West coast and sometime in between in the middle of the country.
It is a very fun Christmas movie and due to some DVD playing while I was half asleep I remember quite a bit about how they made those puppets.
I also figured I’d give you my top 5 Movie based Christmas gifts. Continue reading
As you know, I love terrible movies. So, by default I have watched an obscene amount of craptastic movies. One of those movies is Confessions of a Shopaholic. And although, it is possibly a very vain accomplishment, and while I don’t believe I actually win anything. Here I am on the front page of Cracked.com. I’m also not terribly funny. Click Here or the Picture below to be taken to my win and if you feel so inclined you can vote it up some more.
I’ve also recently gone vegetarian, and am working my way towards vegan. However, as promised you will have a bunch of cookbooks reviewed by me. Furthermore, in the right hand sidebar there is a calendar with my NaNoWriMo accomplishments, it’s been at 9900 for quite some time now and still is at the time of this posting. Feel free to berate my writing laziness in the comments section. And that’s me, just tooting my own horn, just pointing you to random pointless accomplishments that I’ve made. Feel free to alert me to your pointless accomplishments in the comments below. I love all that kind of stuff.
Peace, Love and Penguins.
I’ve always liked werewolves as one of the traditional American Halloween monsters. I’ve seen movies like Teen Wolf, American Werewolf in London and many more. I’d probably check out the new Teen Wolf show if I wasn’t almost nearly certain that it was a big ploy to ruin my childhood. So I checked out three movies that I had never seen about werewolves and I was surprised. I also haven’t checked out the newest Wolf Man movie with Anthony Hopkins, so I’m going to watch that in the near future and maybe watch a few more Werewolf movies as well.
What follows are my reviews of The Wolf Man, The Werewolf and The Howling. Continue reading
