I Put a Spell on You, Because You're Mine!


Halloween is almost here.  Are you preparing by watching your favorite horror movies?  I love classics like "The Thing," but if you're looking for something a little more recent, here's a list of the 10 best horror flicks from the last two years.  Can't argue with #1! (Forbes)

Speaking of horror movies, here are the celebs you didn't want to see die in their respective films.  Spoilers abound, obviously.  (Crushable)

If you're really looking for a good scare, though, forget the movies.  Head to your library or bookstore and look for one of these spooky novels!  I definitely recommend any of H.P. Lovecraft's work if you want something to give you some lingering heebie-jeebies.  (io9)

As far as real life horror goes, the whole eastern seaboard is preparing for Hurricane Sandy to hit this week.  Please, if you're in the storm's predicted path, take precautions and stay safe!  (Boing Boing)

The story of this 98 year old veteran who fought cancer long enough to cast his vote in this election should inspire you.  Never take for granted your right to vote, and remember those who fought to give it to you.  (NPR)

I do so love these costumes from the fourth annual HallowMeme party (where peeps dress up as their favorite internet memes).  So many women in binders!  (Vulture)

I may be one of the few Star Trek fans who enjoyed "Star Trek: Nemesis."  A big part of that enjoyment has to do with Tom Hardy.  I can't even imagine what the movie would've been like had James Marsters (aka Spike from "Buffy") had gotten Hardy's role instead!  (The Mary Sue)

WHAT.  (Mommyish)

No, seriously, what?  (AV Club)

Was Meat Loaf three sheets to the wind here or what?  Seriously, I cannot stop laughing at this.  (CNN)

This right here is my favorite song for this time of year - "I Put a Spell on You" by Screamin' Jay Hawkins.  The original recording is great, but you have to see the man in action to really appreciate the song.
