The Halloween Spook Show 2014 Begins!!!

And so it begins.

Welcome and thank you for joining in on this insane journey as we celebrate together the best season of the year. I have planned this one out since, I don’t know, last November? There are certain people in this world who have a connection to the strange and unusual. I, myself, am strange and unusual so the duty of writing, filming and photographing everything this Halloween season is a job which I revel in. But what does that mean, you ask?

Well, here is a tease of the season ahead:

Spooky NC!

Holy cats, ya’ll. I have been around the block since the beginning of Spring to film a lot of scary locations and real haunts from North Carolina all the way down to Mobile, Alabama. I know the title is geographically misleading but after I started the page, I couldn’t change the name. To find the past Spooky NC trips just click HERE!

Horror Business!

You’ve seen my Beers with Movie Sauce show, haven’t you? This Halloween it will return but with shorter episodes because, lets face it, no one is going to sit through a fifteen minute video about a movie they have seen. Brevity is the key to comedy. Expect this to shine closer to October in a countdown to the best horror movies you may or may not have experienced.

Celebrity Guests!

I won’t spoil the surprise but this season there will be awesome joint bloggers and guests who many of you are familiar with. I am that kid who shouts what the gift is before the other person has a chance to open it so I will stop here.

BREIIIIEEE IT’S KILLING ME!!!

Tales Of The Macabre!

Remember back in the day when I used to write long stories of life experiences? Yeah, I saved a few just for this season. Like the time I ruined my first grade Halloween recital in front of the whole school and my parents. I think I am brave enough to talk about that now. This is my version of therapy.

Reviews!

Ho-Boy I have spent some cheddar this year. I have lots and lots to talk about when it comes to silly Halloween retail that you must buy. From food to beer to a headless horseman costume, it’s all on the table this year. There’s a reason I bought two mega hard drives and a production studio. Shit, I am in the middle of building a bar to film my “Halloween Cocktail” show. Trust me, it’s fucking stupid but oh so fun.

Friends!

And it wouldn’t be Halloween if I didn’t talk about DinosaurDracula, Review the World, Sexy Armpit and the like. They kill it when it comes to this season and please, please, please, support Dino Drac and the awesomeness that he brings to this Halloween season by subscribing to the Fun Packs. They are so worth it and each box is like having 1991 spring in your living room, knocking over furniture, flipping out the cat and then crash through the window only to distantly sound car alarms and sirens. It’s crazy. Click here to spend your money on something amazing.

I can’t thank you enough for coming along with me down this dark and scary road. I promise it will be fun. I PROMISE! The postings will be pretty regular throughout the week. I am not going to tie myself to a midnight deadline for everyday because of that whole career thing but it will be busy here. Lots of videos and tons of articles to pass the time in your cubicle. I know what you do at work.

Let the show begin.

Review the World and I Chat about Root Beer and C.H.U.D. 2

It all began in a far away land called Moscow, Idaho. I was a stressed-out student in a medical program the University of Idaho had just flung together called Neuro Applied Science and it took every inch of my soul. Not to mention working full-time at a sales job with a boss that was more of a kid than a leader. The year was 2009 and it was a cold and snowy night. I sat at my kitchen table taking a break from the madness I called “Tuesday” and escaped to the wonderland of a site that was X-Entertainment. A site that was full of humor, nostalgia and news on what Slurpee Kmart had available. Completely me.

There was a small community of people who would comment on various posts and articles and link their own sites to share. That is where I found Brian from Review the World dot com. Immediately I was blown away. Brian’s positivity, sense of adventure and zany trips to explore just about anywhere had me entertained for years. It is impossible to be in a bad mood after a trip with that guy.

Over the years we became pretty good pals taking part in joint reviews and even some projects with Matt from Dinosaur Dracula (X-Entertainment). Then, last month, Brian came down to North Carolina to visit and it was beyond a treat to have him over. Such a genuine dude of character and soul. It is great to know there are truly good people out in the world and it makes the trips on YouTube with Brian even better now that I know him.

So here is a part one of “Beers with Movie Sauce” featuring Brian from RtW. We chat about CHUD 2 and my favorite root beer, Abita. I had a few beers since we just returned from a party/BBQ so ignore my rambling and the way I say “like” every other statement.

A Quick Little Update In HD!

Hey. I am sitting in a meeting listening to people who suck at product support try and talk me into selling their dog shit. Little do they know I am talking to you. They probably think I am taking excessive notes but, no, I am writing a vlog intro to tell you about my last couple weeks and this kick ass new toy I bought just to make my production value increase. Even if by a nose.

Later tonight you will watch, for the first time ever, a joint “Beers with Movie Sauce” show with Brian from Review the World. I can’t tell you how awesome this is for me as a long time fan of his work. So much fun and so great to know awesome people.

And that’s what it’s all about, Charlie Brown!

Beers With Movie Sauce: Halloween II (the good one)

Here we are again, drinking beer and hot sauce while yapping about a film that has been out long enough to witness thirty different fashion trends. Tonight we tip back a beer from the Band of Brewers in the great state of Colorado. This Coors product is Third Shift Ale and it kinda sucks. I don’t feel the need to sugar coat the truth so I will just lay it out there.

The hot sauce, however, is one of my favorites not only because it comes from the home of one of the greatest breweries, Arrogant Bastard, but because it tastes amazing. The Double Burn Habanero Bastard will light your face while leaving a pleasant throat tingling feeling. I think there is some sort of illegal agent in the mix.

Okay, tonight I am sharing my love for the sequel to John Carpenter’s classic, Halloween II. I loved this film for a number of reasons but most notably I loved this film because when I saw it, I fell in love with the genre. It was one of the first “slasher” films I was exposed to through the safety of channel 46’s FCC guidelines. But that didn’t stop me from searching out rentals in later years to fill the need for Autumn creepy goodness.

So go to the fridge and grab a beer, turn down the lights and also the brain. It’s time for another episode of Beers with Movie sauce.

Beers With Movie Sauce: Fright Night (for real)

Howdy! Boy it has been a bit since we last sat down, kicked back a couple of cold ones and chatted about scary flicks that we love. Tonight, why don’t we do it again over one of my favorite eighties flick, Fright Night? This one is so much fun to watch because it’s a simple monster movie with brilliant special effects and some pretty great scares that hold up even today.

The latest episode of “Beers with Movie Sauce” is all set for your viewing pleasure. I have left my dignity at the door. Be sure to pick it up on the way out. Enjoy!
