Time For A Haircut Dusty

If your ever at Balboa Beach in California, walk down Main Street to J.J.’s Haircutting and you’ll see this picture planted right in the front window. Look at the guy in the first frame. Kinda looks like a hippie from the late 60’s early 70’s? Well, that picture has been hanging proudly at J.J.’s Haircutting for as long as I can remember. I found an old news article from 1978 and the picture was there! When I was a little girl, Balboa was our beach. Every summer, a family trip to Balboa included a walk along Main Street, maybe an Orange Julius from the corner shop that is no longer there, and a gander at the “Werewolf Man”. Of course we were referring to this picture. It kinda creeped me out when I was young, yet, we always had to visit it. And to this day the “Dusty The Fox” picture still hangs proudly in the window! Thanks J.J’s for keeping up the tradition!

Hmmm… I know a few guys who are somewhere between frames 2 and 3…Should I be worried?

Movie Review: Let Me In

When I hear that Hollywood is re-making a movie, I usually cringe and expect the worst. And usually the product is just what I expected, a poorly planned hatchet job of the original film. But it has happened, on a few RARE occasions, that a re-make can be just as good, heck sometimes even better than its predecessor. Case in point, the 2010 release of “Let Me In”, the American adaption of the critically acclaimed Swedish film “Let The Right One In”. I had heard recommendations about “Let The Right One In” about a year ago on various horror blogs, so I marked it down on my list of horror movies to watch. And then after hearing a radio interview where Robert Englund (aka Freddy Krueger) was praising the book and story as one of his favorites, I was determined to check it out for myself.

Bizarre Behaviors: Horsemaning The New Fad

I’ll admit, this really has nothing to do with Halloween, but it is seriously one of the creepiest things I’ve seen recently. You may have heard of planking, (photographing and posting a picture of yourself laying face-down like a stiff board in unusual locations). You might also have heard of the more bizarre version of this “game” called owling (a variation of “planking” where someone squats like an owl.) But now there is another strange fad called Horsemaning. Sources claim this fad actually started in the 1920’s, hence the creepy beheaded girl picture above, but I’m sure if I asked my grandmother (if she were still alive), she would have said your crazy…no one did this except maybe a few morbidly weird kids with too much time and rich parents. In any case, “horsemaning” is making a comeback as the latest internet fad. You know what? I think this one is actually pretty cool. WHAT IF YOU MIXED THIS WITH ZOMBIE MAKEUP??? Just a thought… Continue reading

Scariest Video Game of All Time?

The guy in this video is playing a computer game called Amnesia: The Dark Decent. I’ve heard this game is especially terrifying, especially if you turn off the lights and play alone. You can find lots of entertaining “Amnesia” reaction videos on Youtube. People who have played this game admit that these reactions are very real…which makes me want to run out and buy this game immediately! Continue reading
