Dia de los Muertos

Another favorite fall holiday of mine is Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead.  It is celebrated in Mexico every year on November 1st in order to honor the dead.  A few weeks ago I found these awesome paper-mâché skulls– perfect for celebrating Dia de los Muertos!  They were extremely easy to make and a perfect outlet for creativity.  So if you need some decor for this holiday, head to your nearest Michael’s asap!

They look kinda menacing even plain!

The Shining


Warning: array_key_exists() expects parameter 2 to be array, boolean given in /home1/es7400/public_html/wp-content/plugins/reaction-buttons/reaction_buttons.php on line 54

Ahhh the day has finally arrived.  The day I force myself to watch The Shining.  It is one of my all time favorite movies (in the top 5 along with Tommy Boy, Old School, Jackie THE_SHINING-31Brown, and Field of Dreams) and I watch it every year around Halloween.  I absolutely HATE scary movies so it’s pretty crazy that this is one of my favorite movies.

Whenever I tell people I don’t like scary movies but I watch The Shining  and it is my fave, they’re like what that is the scariest movie ever.  I have never understood this.  It is psychologically scary, yes I will give you that.  But it is nothing like Texas Chainsaw Massacre (which I almost died watching I was so scared).  And, I think theshiningthe Blair Witch Project is WAY scarier than The Shining, although actually a little less than I previously thought because I just discovered a few years ago that it wasn’t real and that those people are actors… 

Anyway, The Shining!  Shelley Duvall!  Legendary.  Scatman Crothers!  His name is SCATMAN!  And I need not mention the legend himself Jack Nicholson.  Oh I cannot wait to watch!   

This trailer is pretty clever/hilarious (please note: if you have not seen the movie do not see it based on this trailer.  You will be like WTF). 

Now compare that with this:

Oooooh gives me shivers!  I cannot wait to watch!!

The most hilarious thing I have seen in a long time; thanks Ronnie!!  (It’s even awesomer that this clip features one of Chicago’s very own actors from the Improv Olympic!)

Stoned meat-heads or hippies– two of the worst groups of people on the planet!!  Haha too true!!
