IT’S A GIVEN
That it’s ALL back wash when drinking out of the same bottle with others!
Keeping it simple in this high tech world is nearly impossible. But every now and then we see someone come up with a brilliant idea to your spruce up the old man cave. Let’s face it, there are a million things we want to add, hang, light up, and build in our caves. But sometimes your just standing on the greatest space saving idea and we really think this one might be one of our favorites.
Some paint and floor space and you’ve got yourself an awesome shuffle board game for a very reasonable price.
Halloween historically has been a holiday of all different types of controversy and depending which state you were from, different names are used to describe the events that occur. October 31st was originally a night of revolting that started before the 20th century with some basic mischief, unhinging barn doors, tipping outhouses, and still till this day throwing eggs. In the early 20’s and 30’s was when things really got serious due to tensions of the Great Depression and the threats of war. Tough times brings out the worst in people. To stem away from vandalism, concerned parents and town leaders tried to steer kids away from trouble with candy, encouraging the forgotten tradition of trick-or-treating in costume in exchange for sweets, bumping the mischief element from the celebrations of Oct. 31 altogether. It was then that shitheads adopted Oct. 30 as their day to pull pranks.(God bless shitheads)
Growing up for us the night before Halloween was called “cabbage night”. Some cities and states depending which side of the tracks your from call it hell night, goosey night, or even mischief night. We would fill socks with flower (some kids would put rocks in as well) and it was game on. We would beat the shit out of each other then decorate your yard with toilet paper and why not top of the evening with a few bottle rockets and M80’s. Times have changed for the better I guess in most cities with now a curfew policy to follow, strictly enforced. Personally a little harmless shaving cream on the neighbors Porsche never hurt anyone!

So while you wait for the last minute to get your costume together, we compiled a list of our top 5 most popular costumes for this year. Now keep in mind that there’s always an A+ for creativity and not just going out and buying your shit and think your all original, because your not. Now with that being said, here are my predictions: (Please Halloween Responsibly)
- 1. Pennywise (scary shit)
- 2. Deadpool (my favorite)
- 3. Inflatable T-Rex (excellent for NOT getting laid)
- 4. Cookie monster (he is a monster you know)
- 5. Spaced Out (lights up, excellent for not getting hit by a car)
HORROR OVER TIME
The world’s first horror movie doesn’t seem particularly scary these days, but in 1896, Le Manoir du Diable (released in the U.S. as The Haunted Castle) had the most cutting-edge special effects of its day. Made by famed French filmmaker Georges Méliès.
The soundtrack sounds like a weird little lullaby, somewhat taking away from the horror of it all. I’m thinking my electric bill is scarier. People appear and disappear in clouds of smoke, and bats suddenly take human forms! On the less frightening side, there are quite a few men in funny hats, and the demon pokes people in the butt. It could have been a metaphor for something else possibly. The story of an encounter with the Devil and various attendant phantoms. Intended to evoke amusement and wonder from its audiences, rather than fear. However, because of its themes and characters, it was technically to be considered the first horror film. The film was presumed lost until 1988, when a copy was found in the New Zealand Film archives. You won’t find it on Netflix but if check the web you’ll see a few copies out there. Get Involved!

Recently I was running my Pandora and doing my singalong in the shower because we all know, that’s when we reflect on our lives and think we missed our calling for being a rock star. I checked out the band and it came up as “The Nightwatchman “ (WTF). Further research and who popped up, Tom Morello from Rage Against The Machine! Born in Harlem NY and raised in Illinois. Attending Harvard University earning a Bachelor of Arts degree. After his previous band, Lock UP, disbanded, Morello met Zack De LA Rocha, and the two founded Rage Against the Machine together, going on to become one of the most popular and influential rock acts of the 1990. He’s played in bands such as Audioslave, Prophets Of Rage, Street Sweeper Social Club, and of course who once again The Nightwatchman playing my new favorite song, “Black Spartacus Heart Attack Machine”
Known for his unique and creative guitar playing style, which incorporates feedback noise, unconventional picking, and tapping as well as heavy use of guitar effects. Morello is also known for his leftist political views and activism; creating the Nightwatchman offered an outlet for his views while playing non political music with Audioslave. It’s a goose bump moment so take the time and tune in, he’s rocking this shit! (Please Rock On Responsibly).
