I guess it must be time to refill the well. I find myself in a mode of consuming, rather than creating, and I’m enjoying the time spent here. I’m truly glad I invested in the 30 film Blu-ray set of the original Universal horror films, which have been remastered to eliminate the scratches and wearContinue reading “Consumption”

Ends? Yes, it does.
Here we are on the 14th, and I’ve just finished watching “Halloween Ends” on my big screen, courtesy of Peacock. I’m not going to reveal any spoilers here, as I think everyone should see and judge it for themselves. Overall, there are some parts that seemed to drag for me. I paused it twice toContinue reading “Ends? Yes, it does.”
I find October very amusing, as I watch the world embracing horror and monsters so enthusiastically… and then on November first, they all pack it away as they prepare for the next bandwagon to jump on. For those like me, for whom Halloween is a lifestyle and not just a day, it’s funny to watch.Continue reading “Ah, October!”
Classic Horror LIVES!
The classic horror that monster kids like me grew up with and came to enjoy so much all began with Universal Studios. When we saw that plane circling the planet, we knew we were in for some good stuff! And, as good as the actors were that gave life to our monsters, we really needContinue reading “Classic Horror LIVES!”
It’s been a busy time since I returned to the workplace in a full time job, but I did manage to find some interesting things here and there. I’d seen posts of Frederick Cooper’s artwork here and there, but came across an ad for a book he’d published of his sketches. Intrigued, I visited hisContinue reading “Amazing artist!”
To The Dungeon!
After a 2-hour drive to Plainville, Connecticut (including a hair-raising stretch through Hartford on I-84, the road that seems to attract those drivers with a prominent death wish), we arrived yesterday afternoon at our destination! Upon entering, we were greeted by Cortlandt Hull, curator of the museum and the great-nephew of actor Henry Hull, whoContinue reading “To The Dungeon!”
Where it all began…
As a “monster kid” from the late 50’s, my introduction to the world of horror began with watching the classic monsters in the Universal Studios movies that started it all. My particular host to these films was Zacherley, the “Cool Ghoul” hosting “Shock Theater” on TV. I’ve recently acquired the entire set of Universal classicsContinue reading “Where it all began…”
My chosen category
Having been born in the mid 1950’s, I’m categorized as a ‘Baby Boomer’, which doesn’t bother me. We tend to categorize and compartmentalize everything, and this just happens to be where I fall. So be it. Call me whatever you want, just don’t call me late for dinner and all’s good. But, back in theContinue reading “My chosen category”
As we’ve gone through 2020, 2021 and 2022, we’ve experienced a global pandemic, bodies stacked in refrigerated trailers like wood piles, we’re on the brink of a nuclear holocaust as tensions mount across the world, global supply chains have clogged, making resources scarce, and inflation has exploded to levels that leave us on the brinkContinue reading “What’s next?”
Back at the keyboard
It seems my old friend, the Muse, has elected to return and spend some quality time with me again. I’ve broken ground on what I hope will build into a novel, and I just finished a new short story about a call center I briefly worked at, titled “The Facility”. In this one, I triedContinue reading “Back at the keyboard”
