Just wanted to show you some of my iPad wallpapers that I’ve collected from online. A lot of them are from a blog entitled John’s Forbidden Planet, but some were discovered by doing a Google image search for “HD autumn wallpaper”, “HD Wolf Man wallpaper”, etc. The key is “HD”.

Alos, here are a couple of FLickr accounts of people who upload wonderfully retro images all the time: PopKulture and LORAC!. Go crazy! I did! Continue reading

The Lady and The Monster (AKA Hypnos)- I’ve had this film in my NetFlix queue for some time now, saving it for when I was in the mood for a 40’s-era horror flick. Well, last weekend during a thunderstorm was the right time.

First off, a quick synopsis of the film: A millionaire’s brain is preserved after his death, and telepathically begins to take control of those around him.

Some seasonal favorites sitting around the house:

It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown [Read-Along Book & Record] © 1978
The Witch Next Door by Norman Bridwell © 1965
The Witch’s Vacation by Norman Bridwell © 1973

Jughead Double Digest: October © 2011
Synopsis: When Gladys tells Jughead he looks like teen vampire heartthrob, Basil Loverton, he wants to know more about the new movie craze. Taking it as a compliment, he plays into it on his date with her the next night. Unfortunately, Gladys isn’t the only one who thinks Jughead looks like her idol and a mob of fans swarm poor Juggie like wild animals. He manages to get away but must end his tortured romance before it even begins – just like a teen vampire!
Comments: From time to time (usually in the Fall and Winter), I’ll be seduced by an Archie comic at the checkout. Damn you, impulse buy! I only see them on occasion and usually it’s at one of the Tom Thumb stores. They’re a nice fluffy read while taking a bath, eating lunch or killing time during errands. Of course, this one enticed me because it was Halloween and this issue has a ‘vampire’ story in it. Continue reading
