The Monster Channel!

Image
There baaaaaaack!! This could be the most exciting news in forever when it comes to classic horror! After a long (for me) 2 year hiatus the Monster Channel will be making its long-awaited return on more platforms than ever before.

From http://www.monsterchannel.tv/
"The Monster Channel debuted in March of 2010 as a 3-day online event celebrating “100 Years of Monster Movies”. We ran a marathon of horror films intercut with live introductions from horror hosts from all over the country, including cameos by Elvira, George Romero and Troma’s own Lloyd Kaufman.

"It was such a smash that we continued it as a double feature on Fridays called “Monstercasts”, until we launched The Monster Channel in January of 2011. The Monster Channel ran for two years before our tech partners decided to change industries in 2013, leaving us with no infrastructure to deliver our content.

"After two years of dormancy, we have finally linked with partners who are helping us not only with infrastru…

Nero, the sheriff of a border town, heads for Mexico to settle an old score: as a boy, he has witnessed how his father was killed by a Mexican. In his quest for revenge, he is accompanied by his younger brother. The man they’re looking for has become a local tyrant, but the plot thickens when he turns out to be the younger brother’s father as well. While the younger brother is locked up by his father, Nero is escorted back to where he came from, but at the border, his escort is attacked by a lawyer-turned-revolutionary and his men, who are about to march against the oppressor ...

It's my party and I will cry if I want to.

So I have been part of the House Party website for a few years now and decided to give it one more shot. Well, guess what I get to host an Oscar party. House Party will be sending out the box of goodies soon so watch this space for more. And I will be posting about the party when its over.

So that left me to wonder does the Oscars matter anymore? It seems every year it's more and more controversy that it seems to be worth. And the top movies are lame most of the time anyway. It seems anymore we tune in just to see what family movie wins.

I remember friends haveing big parties tons of food and drink and some years it was themed or we had to dress in a black tie. Being a movie buff, I find myself skipping out on the Oscars most years.

So who or what are you rooting for to win the big prizes? Do you want more info on House Party click on the link.

I Have Gone Insane

Ok, so I did it I signed up once again for the A to Z challenge. I really enjoyed doing it last year and look forward to it again this year. A few ideas are swimming around in my head and I'm pretty sure we have to reveal our theme at the end of this month.


I also did something new this week I joined the bandwagon of Binge watching. Yeah, yeah I'm a few years behind on this kind of thing. But anyway it was for the show My Diet Is Better than Yours. Really does a TV show other than Baseball or Hockey catch my attention but I could not sleep and I was looking for something to bore me when I stumbled onto this. Unfortunately, it did the opposite keeping me awake as I breezed through the first 3 shows of a short 8 show season. The idea for the show is that star experts will coach overweight Americans on how to lose weight on their unique diet and fitness plans. Hosted by Shaun T, and featuring celebrity trainers including Abel James, Dawn Jackson Blatner, Carolyn Barnes, Jovanka …
