Our family has a Saturday night tradition. Super Sci-Fi Saturday night, on MeTV. And the best part is, it culminates at 9pm CST with The Son of Svengoolie! We love Svengoolie. His perfect blend of horror and comedy make watching these classic horror films a blast. I am so happy Isaiah is 10 now, it's the … Continue reading The Best Classic Horror Movies For Older Kids!
Hold on Tight I Don't Exactly Know What's Going to Happen! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r2pt2-F2j2g As a child, I remember being quite frightened by Willy Wonka and his Chocolate Factory.

(If you don't want to be regaled by my unhealthy fascination with 70's pop culture feel free to skip to the … Continue reading Twisted MixTape #40 – Where Did The Hardy Boys Go Wrong?
Warning: If you are under 38yo this post may make no sense to you. When I was a little kid I thought I could talk to aliens through my computer, and that my best friend was psychic. Those things were not mutually exclusive. When we were in junior high (because middle school did not exist) … Continue reading MS-DOS and ESP
So my friend Dana over at Kiss My List tagged me in the Old School Blogging Lists of Five. I am happily playing along, because it's fun, and I don't want to think of something serious and poignant to write. Funnily enough, I couldn't think of 5 things I'd like to do before I … Continue reading Old School Blogging
Ah The Sixties, those were the days. Rock n' Roll was shiny and new, minimum wage was $1.00 and skateboards became the hottest thing, allowing kids to surf on asphalt. Not only that; but we got Star Trek, The Addams Family, The Jestsons, The Flinstones, Bewitched, I Dream of Jeannie and so much more! … Continue reading Twisted Mix Tape Tuesday 10
I've been asked to contemplate what my favorite movie is. Truth be told, I am not one of those people who will watch movies over and over and over. That's my husband. You might make it onto my list as a favorite even if I haven't watched you in 5 years. I've been trying to … Continue reading Who is Chewbahoe Anyway?
