So after the will to live was sucked out of me by watching and tweeitng about The Christmas Shoes last night, I need cat pictures. Lots and lots of cat pictures. I’ll be honest, this week, I need some …Continue reading →
Reminder for this evening: at 6PM EST, I’ll be live tweeting the Lifetime classic The Christmas Shoes. It’s … an experience. I’m going to attempt to do this sober. I’m not sure if I’m going to finish it sober, but …Continue reading →
I don’t know if anyone else is in this boat, but has holiday shopping been kind of blah this year, or is it just me? I’ve gone out to a few stores, and not only has store turnout been so …Continue reading →
Thanksgiving is officially behind us, which means bring on the Christmas. In the past, I used to be one of those people that dreaded it. Now that my kids are old enough to be past the Santa thing (and I …Continue reading →
I wanted to be sure to come out of hiding to wish everyone a Happy Halloween without disrupting the scheduled line-up of posts for this week. So this is going to be a slight deviation from my usual fare of Trailer Tuesday contributions.
Once a year, I emerge from the dank recesses of my lair and adjust my hood, lest the piercing gaze of daylight sear my flesh. I’ll now gorge myself on thousands of unsuspecting Reese’s minis, watch classic horror films, and submit this post to assure everyone I’m alive before scuttling back to the sewers to slumber until Christmas. Part of the ritual also includes taking stock of my life (because what self-respecting ghoul doesn’t on a day that celebrates our fragile mortality) and turning to nostalgic entertainment. I’m not the only one, apparently. Creatures like me have taken over your TV and your town. We’ve possessed your young Millennials to find joy in throwback entertainment, including homages, tributes, remakes, and downright rip-offs. Today, I’m going to give you a trailer mash-up to watch once you’ve reached that point in the evening when you’re home from the party and under the influence of candy and alcohol (you know, that point when you feel you should hate yourself, but rationalize that it’s only once a year so the guilt is short-lived). It’s those moments when you’re done with everything you planned to do for the night, but aren’t quite ready to go to bed. Nostalgia TV (or in this case YouTube) is often the cure for that moment of post-revelry ennui.
So lie back. Dust the candy wrappers off your costume, and sink under the spell of nostalgic horror entertainment. I’ll be watching…
This week has been long and tiring and all I want is cake and a milkshake. We’re not going to let a little thing like exhaustion stop us. No sir. This week, we’re going to skip a trailer on Tuesday …Continue reading →
Stranger Things season 2 premieres at the end of the week, and this is what we’re been salivating over since last fall. Damn is it a good time to be alive. This week, we’re going to celebrate with some …Continue reading →
This week has blown up in terms of how much the female experience can suck sometimes. Yes, we get wonderful moments (hello, multiple orgasms, my old friend), but there’s a ton of bullshit that either gets perpetuated or willfully ignored. …Continue reading →
This weekend has gotten away from me. All I wanted to do was watch horror movies and eat pie. I got to eat pie. It wasn’t a total loss. This week, we’re going for the lighter side of horror, then …Continue reading →
