I want to be Dr. Frank-n-Furter when I grow up. There’s nothing better than Tim Curry in lingerie. NOTHING.
I suggest you check your local theatre listings. There’s likely to be a midnight showing in your town/city, especially at Halloween time.
Put on some thigh-highs and head out into the night….
For the Rocky Horror virgin, here’s what you’ll need, from the geniuses at Rookie Mag:
Remember kids: don’t dream it, be it.
Lots of blogs are giving into the Halloween spirit and writing spooktacular blog posts:
Yesterday, (Oct. 20th) was Bela Lugosi’s birthday. Lugosi Fun Facts:
Vampira was the sexy hostess of the late-night horror movies aired on Los Angeles television during the 1950′s. She was created and portrayed by Maila Nurmi, a Finnish actress and model.
Nurmi was a character of the highest order. Pre-Vampira, she was the model for some of Alberto Vargas’ pinups and she even worked with Marilyn Monroe. She portrayed Vampira in Ed Wood’s Plan 9 From Outer Space (widely considered the worst film ever made) and later in life she claimed to contact James Dean from “beyond the veil.”
There’s nothing better than basking in the warm glow of a laptop screen. Unless you count human contact (which I do not.) I watch a lot of paranormal reality television… on my laptop… while in bed. I’d say it’s my guilty pleasure… but it’s pretty much just my pleasure. Most of these shows are SO BAD they’re good. Sometimes though, on rare occasions, I’m authentically creeped out by the spooky happenings on these programs:
I dislike this show, but I like to hate-watch it sometimes. For the record, I don’t believe in “hunting ghosts” because you’re basically hunting humans. Doesn’t that seem morally wrong in several ways? Can you imagine sneaking into someone’s home at night, shaking them awake and then making them turn a flashlight on and off while you shove a camera in their face the ENTIRE TIME? Mostly, I watch Ghost Hunters because any show featuring middle aged, white men who scare themselves in the dark seems like a win for feminism. Plus, I like to imagine what they would do if they actually “caught” a ghost. Would they suck it into a vacuum, Ghostbusters style? Let’s be real. They’d probably pee in their pants and cry, right? That’s what I would do.
A gruff New York cop (who’s weirdly attractive) and an awkward psychic (who’s weirdly attractive) investigate hauntings. Amy Allan, who
plays is a psychic is super creepy. Her face and voice are SO animated and expressive. She looks authentically scared all the time, which makes me authentically scared ALL THE TIME.
I can’t even discuss this show because it scares the living hell out of me. FOR REAL. All you need to know is that Ryan Buell (sexy) herds a rag tag team of misfits into homes where they will potentially become a demon’s midnight snack. Also, the show features psychics and priests who seem to be vaguely “not right” in at least one lobe of their brain. I mean that in the best possible way. My favorite episodes are the ones with Lorraine Warren, the bat-shit-crazy great aunt you always wished you had. Everything about her is PERFECT. Basically, this show drops the D-Bomb (as in demon) more than any other, making it both terrifying and ridiculous.
This show is the Glee of the paranormal world. Really nice psychics help really nice kids come to terms with their psychic abilities. A lot of the kids looks like they haven’t slept in months. They are terrified of the creepy ghost that harass them 24/7. Side note: ghosts are assholes. Often, the parents don’t believe in anything supernatural and think their kid is possessed by Satan. There’s a lot of turmoil but, eventually, the parents accept the kid for who they are. I cry a lot when I watch this show.
There are MANY other shows in this genre, but these are a few of my favorites. I know some people watch them unironically, and that’s totally okay. I don’t judge (unless you’re on a paranormal reality show, in which case I do judge. Harshly.)
Wednesday Addams is a major source of inspiration for me. She is a homicidal maniac and budding feminist. She dresses like a Pilgrim-Witch, even though it’s a total oxymoron. I love her completely. She has earned her place in the Halloween pantheon.
My favorite Wednesday Addams quotes and photos:
Joel: Wednesday, do you think that maybe someday you might want to get married and have kids?
Joel: But what if you met the right man, who worshiped and adored you? Who’d do anything for you? Who’d be your devoted slave? Then what would you do?
Wednesday: I’d pity him.
Morticia: Wednesday’s at that very special age when a girl has only one thing on her mind.
Ellen Buckman: Boys?
Addams Family Motto: We gladly feast on those who would subdue us.
I would never feast on you, dear reader.

I guess people use these digital glitter hearts for online scrapbooking or something, but the concept of “digital glitter” is really funny to me:
I love hearing about people’s travel adventures and mishaps. This one about Costa Rica is fabulous and embodies everything I love about travel: weirdness, strange situations and wondering if you’ve accidentally ingested drugs. Reminds me of that time a Rastafarian put a huge wild snake around my neck in a Saint Lucian jungle… good times…
Want to be a writer? This is a pretty accurate guide… especially the dick jokes. There’s a lot of penis involved in writing.
FYI, Victorian-era artificial arms are pretty.
Hippies! I need some striped pants.
Did you know Agatha Christie surfed? Yep. That happened. Proof.
In conclusion, I’m addicted to Retronaut.
That is all.
Sometimes, I wonder if I’m becoming one of the stereotypes found in the many, many movies I consume. Take, for example, the Manic Pixie Dream Girl.
Sometimes I think, “Am I turning into a Manic Pixie Dream Girl?”
But then I think, “Nah, I’m too crazy to be a Manic Pixie Dream Girl.”
BUT THEN I think, “That’s exactly what a Manic Pixie Dream Girl would think.”
BUT THEN I think, “I’m all of the Manic Pixie and none of the Dream Girl.”
Which leads me to think, “That’s something a Self-Loathing Emo Girl would think.”
And the vicious cycle continues….
In unrelated news, I’ve decided to spend today live-tweeting the first season of Dawson’s Creek while I cross shit off my To Do list. That show was the soundtrack of my adolescence but I haven’t seen any of the episodes since they originally aired (starting in 1998.)
I was 11 at the time.
So… this should be interesting…
Follow me on Twitter @missbunnysunday and watch the hilarity unfold!
I told Fiancé that I hadn’t slept all night because I was preparing to live-tweet Dawson’s Creek.
The look in his eyes said, “I am imagining you dead.”
I don’t blame him.
