Happy Halloween Everyone
Here is a healthy way to start off the Halloween festivities.
Troy, MI Annual Frightful 5K
I’ve run this race several times.
I’m pleased to say I was only 19 seconds slower than two years ago, coming in this year in 40 minutes and 52 seconds.
Not too bad for a 75 year-old
But better than anything, I got to run it with two of my best friends
Tania & Walter
BOOKS OF THE WEEK
Given Halloween will soon be here, I thought I would once again mention some graphic novels that are fun to read and tells the stories through pictures such as the ones below:
Bram Stoker’s Dracula
Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein
Robert Louis Steven’s
The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde
& The Body Snatcher
ENTERTAINMENT OF THE WEEK
Night of the Living Dead
This 1968 movie is one of the most scary movies that I have ever seen, but if you read below you will learn that it is more than just a scary movie.
Night of the Living Dead eventually garnered critical acclaim and has been selected by the Library of Congress for preservation in the National Film Registry, as a film deemed, “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.” (Source: Wikipedia)
MUSIC OF THE WEEK
Picket’s facial expressions are amazing.
by Bobby Picket & The Crypt-Kickers
ART OF THE WEEK
DVD covers are another form of art. I’m particularly fond of this one, since Mike the films creator was kind enough to put me on the cover.
The Dead Walk the Earth, Yet They Live and They Kill
EXTRAORDINARY PERSON OF THE WEEK
Who else, the week of Halloween
Cassandra Peterson, May 2011
Cassandra Peterson (born September 17, 1951) is an American actress best known for her portrayal of the horror hostess character Elvira, Mistress of the Dark. She gained fame on Los Angeles television station KHJ-TV wearing a revealing, black, gothic, cleavage-enhancing gown as host of Elvira’s Movie Macabre, a weekly horror movie presentation. Her wickedly vampish appearance is offset by her comical character, quirky and quick-witted personality, and Valley girl-type speech.
Elvira, Mistress of the Dark
Elvira is an “other worldly” entity who goes about our world by portraying American actress Cassandra Peterson, who of all things, portrays a make-believe character, Elvira, Mistress of the Dark.
JOKE OF THE WEEK
Here is a Halloween joke for my Vegan friends
Getting Along with Others
When you come to think about it, less tricks and more treats is good advice for getting along with others at any time during the year.
Halloween is a particularly dangerous times for cats, especially black cats
Please be a responsible cat owner and keep your cat indoors
Well, I guess it is ok for my cat to be outside during Halloween
He is a rather large cat.
Cats have 9 times the challenges we have.
So put some thought into it and if you aren’t satisfied,
make some changes.
You may have noticed last week that I did not include any videos in the post. Well this week, a special thank you to the WordPress Happiness Engineer who got my videos working again.
