Halloween or Hallowe’en (/ˌhæləˈwin, ˈin, ˌhɒl/; a contraction of “All HallowsEvening“),also known as All Hallows’ Eve, is a yearly celebration observed in a number of countries on October 31, the eve of the Western Christian feast of All Hallows’ Day. It initiates the triduum of Hallowmas, the time in the liturgical year dedicated to remembering the dead, including saints (hallows), martyrs, and all the faithful departed believers. According to many scholars, All Hallows’ Eve is a Christianized feast initially influenced by Celtic harvest festivals, with possible pagan roots, particularly the Gaelic Samhain. Other academics maintain that it originated independently of Samhain and has solely Christian roots.  Typical festive Halloween activities include trick-or-treating (or the related “guising” or “trunk-or-treating“), attending costume parties, decorating, carving pumpkins into jack-o’-lanterns, lighting bonfires, apple bobbing, visiting haunted attractions, playing pranks, telling scary stories, and watching horror films. – – more Read CLICK

Theatrical Release of Hurricane Sandy Benefit Concert, ’12-12-12′ for Victims.

12-12-12 concert

harvey weinsteinLast night in Hollywood, on the Sunset Strip at The Writer’s Guild Theater, I had the good fortune of screening Harvey Weinteins’ heartfelt effort for the victims of Hurricane Sandy. The documentary titled 12-12-12. The film was a true labor of love organized by dozens of Mr. Weinstein’ s Dear, Dear Friends & some of his fellow New Yorkers as well. The documentary featured Legends like Paul McCartney, The Who,  Pink Floyd, The Rolling Stones, Billy Joel & Bruce Springsteen. But some contemporaries like Alicia Key, Adam Sandler, Chris Rock, Steve Buscemi with dozens more including some of the World top Supermodels (Karlie Kloss, Joan Smalls, Ajak Deng) humbly contributed! This Film gets a ‘thumbs’ up from me & after it’s Opening this Friday, November 1, 2013, you’ll see what I mean. As a native New Yorker myself, viewing some of the incredible footage of the destruction this horrific storm caused, left me stunned. Harvey Feinstein said to the audience last night, that, he was absolutely serious about getting every bit of the proceeds from this film to the Victims of this horrific disaster.  We wish him well. – – Please CLICK to Read More

A NEW Documentary about a “UnHung Hero”

censoredDon’t Judge. But…Someone Made a Documentary About Having a Small Penis!

the heroEvidently, Patrick Moote — a man who briefly because Internet famous for a failed proposal caught on a Kiss Cam at a sports game — has smaller-than-average penis. But instead of worrying about it in private, as most men do, he and filmmaker Brian Spitz decided to make Unhung Hero, a documentary all about the trials and tribulations of having a small dick. On a certain level the doc looks pretty cockamamie (sorry, had to) and feels like the movie equivalent of that “deranged sorority girl” getting a book deal. But as folks who are well read in Judith Bordo’s The Male Body and are no strangers to sizing up penises, we have to admit that the premise of investigating how people around the world view small appendages — and the lengths men go through to make them, well, lengthier — is certainly an interesting one, worthy of exploration. The film will be released on DVD this November and we’ll be ready to watch it with popcorn and a measuring tape in tow. – – [via Queerty]

Behind-the-scenes on Film Sets

Horror is a film genre seeking to elicit a negative emotional reaction from viewers by playing on the audience’s primal fears. Horror films often feature scenes that startle the viewer; the macabre and the supernatural are frequent themes. Thus they may overlap with the fantasy, supernatural, and thriller genres. Horror films often deal with the viewer’s nightmares, hidden fears, revulsions and terror of the unknown. Plots within the horror genre often involve the intrusion of an evil force, event, or personage, commonly of supernatural origin, into the everyday world. Prevalent elements include ghosts, aliens, vampires, werewolves, demons, vicious animals, monsters, zombies, cannibals, and serial killers. Conversely, movies about the supernatural are not necessarily always horrific.

Bubble Houses

architect 01

If you were a movie star in the market for a mansion in 1930s Los Angeles, there was a good chance you might call on Wallace Neff. 

architect 00Neff wasn’t just an architect–he was a starchitect. One of his most famous projects was the renovation of Pickfair, the estate owned by the iconic silent film actress Mary Pickford, and her husband Douglas Fairbanks. When the couple moved into Pickfar, the house sat on a nameless street in an empty neighborhood called Beverly Hills. If you were lucky enough to be invited to dinner at Pickfair you might find yourself seated next to Babe Ruth, the King of Spain or Albert Einstein. Life magazine called Pickfair “only slightly less important than the white house, and much more fun.” Neff designed estates for Charlie Chaplin, Judy Garland and Groucho Marx. His Libby Ranch is now owned by Reese Witherspoon. But at the end of his life, Wallace Neff lived in a 1,000 square foot concrete bubble. And Neff believed that this simple dome was his greatest architectural achievements. Continue reading

Not to worry, Help is on the Way. We’ve found a NEW website with ALL the Answers.

dead people LIVE here

Think you’re witnessing paranormal activity at home? Forget ghost hunters — there’s a website for that. Homeowners and renters can now get answers at DiedInHouse.com, which for $11.99 will tell you if anyone has died in your home. The site, a sort of Carfax meets afterlife history report, scours multiple sources to determine if anyone has departed this life in your home before. It’s a task that’s easier said than done, according to the site’s founder Roy Condrey. “It’s harder to find things like this out than you think,” he told the Houston Chronicle. After Condrey learned that most states do not require home sellers or real estate agents to disclose a death there, he sought to create a service that provided death records for a specific address, according to his website. That information might seem to make it tougher for realtors to sell a possibly-haunted property, but one survey finds that prospective buyers aren’t easily spooked out of buying ghoulish real estate. Realtor.com’s 2013 Haunted Housing Report found that 26 percent of the 1,400 people surveyed indicated they would consider buying a haunted house.

This vintage 1950’s ad packed in ALL the ‘chuckles’ for me. Holla-h !
