Well, it’s finally here. Okay, I’m not really a big Halloween fan. If I had children, I’d probably love it more, but it isn’t my favorite holiday. However, Halloween has given us so many great movies and music, I had to post something today.
I hope you’ve had a wonderful October and if you’re trick-or-treating tonight, that you’ll be safe. Today is also the last day to comment for a chance to win a free book from Shelley Munro. The winner will be announced tomorrow.
For now, please enjoy this clip from Tim Burton’s Nightmare Before Christmas set to Marilyn Manson’s version of This is Halloween.
I love Rocky Horror Picture Show. I can remember the first time I saw it, I was stunned by Tim Curry, the storyline, and the music. Every year since then, I have to drag my soundtrack out and listen to it over and over again.
When I was in college, Halloween was the time I’d get to dress as Magenta and do the Time Warp without looking silly. My friends and I had a blast with the audience participation, though our families thought we were insane.
It was difficult to choose today’s song, but since I couldn’t find a clip of the original performance to post here, I had to find something that summed up the movie for me. No, it isn’t Science Fiction Double Feature, but this song:
Do you like Rocky Horror? Have you ever dressed like any of the characters?
Wow, September is over! Already. *sigh* I suppose time flies when you’re having fun.
Happy Friday and Happy October 1st, everyone! I have a few announcements to make before we start the drooling.
First, yesterday, I sent my WIP Tie Him Up, Take Him Out to my CPs. I finished up at 80k and some change. I started this WIP on September 10. I don’t know if it’s any good. It feels good to me, but then it is my latest obsession. Hopefully it isn’t horrible, lol
Secondly, I have a special October planned for y’all. I’ve been thinking (you know how scary that is) and I’ve decided that for the month of October, each week will have a theme surrounding Halloween. We’ll still have our Fantasy Man Fridays (of course!) but the rest of the week will be devoted to one of these themes:
Week 1 & 2 – Horror in Movies
Week 3 – Horror in Music
Week 4 – Horror in Books with a special author interview with Shelley Munro on October 28!
I hope you’ll check back throughout the month and give me your views on these topics. In the meantime, I have a third announcement…are you ready? This is BIG…
There’s been a catastrophic towel shortage worldwide and this man has to give up the only thing protecting his modesty. I’ve decided to take up a collection of money to take to him personally. He won’t be able to buy anything with it but baby oil and maybe some handcuffs. *cough*
Have a Happy Friday, y’all! I’m fishing tomorrow to celebrate The End of my WIP. What are your weekend plans?
