Youtube and my laptop and pics of Donovan  
Hi there everyone!

I am not ignoring anybody! I promise. The kids decided to sabotage my laptop by accidentally pouring grapefruit soda onto it.

Well, okay, maybe not onto it, but near it which crept into it via the tablecloth. To make a long story short, I lost the use of my keypad and the mouse.

I've been using the iMac which we got for Griffon. But it's really fucking hard to write or create anything when you've got everyone coming up behind me. I'm sort of stuck in one spot here.

I discovered many fascinating things on youtube though while I've been here. Did you know they post whole movies on there? I'm in old horror movie heaven! I've watched Prom Night, Slaughter High (which still sucks and is the latest one made in 1987), House on Sorority Row and The Dorm That Dripped Blood. I love 'old' (old as in movies made in the 70's and early 80's) horror/slasher movies, when 'slash' meant the ole hack and well...slash. Did you know that they remade the wonderful 70's horror classic Black Christmas in 2006. They posted that one (the 2006) in its entirety. Don't bother with that one. The original (with Olivia Hussey and Margot Kidder) was much, much better. This was just a gory re-hash.

Also, we bought Deathproof, the second movie that was shown on the Grindhouse movie back in May. There was a trailer on it for a movie called Black Sheep, a horror movie and no, it wasn't a faux trailer - it's a real movie.

A horror movie.

About killer sheep.

No shit.

I found a trailer of the movie on youtube. You just have to see it.

See what I mean?

Also, I bought Donovan's Halloween costume. I couldn't resist and the kid's crazy about everything Star Wars.

And of course, Rowan wanted to try it on also:

I've been running around for the past week going everywhere and trying to post, answering feedback and such and no one is cooperating with me.

Stupid busy RL. *pouts*

I had to grab the folding ladder from the shop tonight and bring Brandin home with me (one of our employees and my daughter's ex.) I know I've been watching too many horror films and clips when I looked at the ladder behind me in the Expedition:

Me: God, with that thing right behind me, I hope we don't have one of those accidents ala Final Destination.
Brandin: Ewwww...well we shouldn't.
Me: Don't be so sure. Probability is now high since one of the passengers in the car is a cute young male.

Yeah, Brandin certainly falls into the category of 'most likely to meet a horrible end' per the horror movie credo.

But we made it back in one piece.

I'm going to be writing hopefully (*crosses fingers*) tonight. I'm borrowing one of the girl's old laptops and taking it with me during one of my many errands.

Hope everything's good with everyone else.

Love you all, Maria.

Was there a slasher fic made in the 80's that didn't have Jamie Lee Curtis in it, LOL?

I really/not really want to see Rob Zombie's version of Halloween but I'm too afraid :O

I like Final Destination parts I and II but I thought three was lame. The highway scene and the ending in part II were awesome.

Your kids are so cute. I wish mine were still that young when it comes to Halloween. I've always made their costumes and done their hair and make-up. I do a very mean (and prize winning) zombie face.

Black Christmas is a freaking scary movie. I remember watching that as a kid. I haven't watched the remake though.

Yes, Virgina, there were horror movies made in the 80's that did not have her. LOL! God, I love that part when they start disco dancing in Prom Night and then the part where Caveman Lou gets decapitated instead of Nick.

Couldn't happen to a nicer guy.

I've seen the trailer of Rob Zombie's latest creation and it looks pretty gory. I'm getting a little sick of the gore to tell you the truth. John Carpenter's Halloween was AMAZING!!! There is not one drop of blood seen (well, there probably is) but it's implied and it scares the hell out of you all the same. I must admit though, Rob Zombie and Halloween does beg to be seen.

Yeah, that highway scene is to die for. Literally. I thought the second was better than the first and I didn't even bother with the third.

Thank you! They are cuties. :) I've made costumes and have bought them. I saw this one in the store and bought it. He's such a Star Wars hound.

And Black Christmas is a very scary movie. See what I said about the remake and the original in court1429's comments above. A classic that was remade into a real dud.
