The last few days of October were a blast.
Thursday the 28th I was fortunate enough to see the NOLD: TPS at The Oriental. I'm happy to report it was very well attended. The audience responded with a well deserved standing O.
I took a friend who is not a fan of horror movies and has never seen any of the Romero films - and she loved it.
That, guys, is how much you ROCK.
Can't wait to see where you show up next.
Saturday I made my way over to The Times Cinema to take in what may be the definitive horror comedy, Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein.
This film is also on my Halloween list of movies I must watch every October. Also a very well attended show. This movie never loses its funny to me - I'll never get tired of the 'Oh Chick, Oh Chhhhhhhhhhhhhickkkkkkk!!!!!!!!' bit, and I always lose it when Costello starts calling the Frankenstein monster 'Junior'.
Then I came home for a nap, and later Papa Cash and I went back to the Times for a raunchy and randy (but fun) show by The Brew City Bombshells. I'd wanted to see their show before but never made it - Holy Crap, the fun I've been missing.
Unfortunately I can't find the gnarly cool poster they had for the Halloween show - but here's an advert featuring the upcoming Christmas show at the Times. And believe me, girls and boys, Mama will be there.
And finally, my Halloween morning - I have a 'Must' list of films that I love and need to watch every October. I'd already watched House on Haunted Hill earlier in the month, and Abbott and Costello the day before - so I got up early Sunday morning and managed to get in a couple before football started.
My double feature consisted of:
(which is a new addition to my list)
'cause it ain't Halloween if Tom Atkins isn't in there somewhere.
I thought I did fairly well for spending so much time away from home this year and being so dang busy. Other films that I usually like to watch are:
Young Frankenstein (although I am seeing the Broadway musical version tomorrow night)
Bride of the Monster or Plan 9 From Outer Space
Mad Monster Party
and I'm sure there's others I'm forgetting right now.
So it was a pretty event filled October - if not a great one for blogging. I will be going back to my favorite blogs, however, and catching up on my favorites and am looking forward to everyone's October adventures.
And - I SWEAR TO GOD pictures really are forthcoming. I did manage to download some pictures on another computer - although mine have still not made it yet. I have completely given up on using my laptop to accomplish this anymore. Mama needs a new computer for Christmas.
AND- to all three of you who entered the contest - Guess what, I've decided to just give you all a print. Thanks for taking the time to enter. Jinx, please post your email in the comments - I won't publish it - and the other two I'll be emailing you for your addresses. JL, I'll need your address as well because I don't know if I have the most recent one. It'll take me a couple weeks to get them mailed out - I have a jacked up work schedule coming up - but you all should get them by the end of November.
I hope everyone had an outstanding Halloween - here's to finishing the rest of the year happy and healthy-
