Silent Hill: Revelation 3D - Official Trailer


I'm not a big fan of 3D movies, but I do love the Silent Hill games. As soon as I heard the music playing in the trailer I flashed back to all the crazy and scary moments in the games. I'm really excited to see this and to experince the Silent Hill house at Halloween Horror Nights 22 this year. Another reason it's going to be a great October this year!

Welcome To My Nightmare


Multi-platinum recording artist Alice Cooper, a mastermind of the rock horror genre, will conjure up his peculiar vision of disturbing horror imagery in two new haunted attractions debuting this fall at Halloween Horror Nights at both Universal Orlando Resort and Universal Studios Hollywood.

Journey into legendary rocker Alice Cooper’s twisted mind and witness the natural melding of horror and Cooper’s four decades-long career. Here you will follow Steven, the iconic character from many of Cooper’s works, as you come face to face with a myriad of tormentors who threaten an already-decaying sense of sanity.

Maybe we'll finally get a Rob Zombie house in Orlando too!

Death Doesn't Exist

“Death doesn't exist. It never did, it never will. But we've drawn so many pictures of it, so many years, trying to pin it down, comprehend it, we've got to thinking of it as an entity, strangely alive and greedy. All it is, however, is a stopped watch, a loss, an end, a darkness. Nothing.”
― Ray Bradbury, Something Wicked This Way Comes.



Ray Bradbury, recipient of the 2000 National Book Foundation Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters, the 2004 National Medal of Arts, and the 2007 Pulitzer Prize Special Citation, died on June 5, 2012, at the age of 91 after a long illness. He lived in Los Angeles.

In a career spanning more than seventy years, Ray Bradbury has inspired generations of readers to dream, think, and create. A prolific author of hundreds of short stories and close to fifty books, as well as numerous poems, essays, operas, plays, teleplays, and screenplays, Bradbury was one of the most celebrated writers of our time. His groundbreaking works include Fahrenheit 451, The Martian Chronicles, The Illustrated Man, Dandelion Wine, and Something Wicked This Way Comes. He wrote the screen play for John Huston's classic film adaptation of Moby Dick, and was nominated for an Academy Award. He adapted sixty-five of his stories for television's The Ray Bradbury Theater, and won an Emmy for his teleplay of The Halloween Tree.



In 2005, Bradbury published a book of essays titled Bradbury Speaks, in which he wrote: In my later years I have looked in the mirror each day and found a happy person staring back. Occasionally I wonder why I can be so happy. The answer is that every day of my life I've worked only for myself and for the joy that comes from writing and creating. The image in my mirror is not optimistic, but the result of optimal behavior.

He is survived by his four daughters, Susan Nixon, Ramona Ostergren, Bettina Karapetian, and Alexandra Bradbury, and eight grandchildren. His wife, Marguerite, predeceased him in 2003, after fifty-seven years of marriage.

Throughout his life, Bradbury liked to recount the story of meeting a carnival magician, Mr. Electrico, in 1932. At the end of his performance Electrico reached out to the twelve-year-old Bradbury, touched the boy with his sword, and commanded, Live forever! Bradbury later said, I decided that was the greatest idea I had ever heard. I started writing every day. I never stopped.

Drive-INventor

Written By Mary Bellis

Richard Hollingshead was a young sales manager at his dad's Whiz Auto Products, who had a hankering to invent something that combined his two interests: cars and movies.

Richard Hollingshead's vision was an open-air movie theater where moviegoers could watch from their own cars. He experimented in his own driveway at 212 Thomas Avenue, Camden, New Jersey. The inventor mounted a 1928 Kodak projector on the hood of his car, projected onto a screen he had nailed to trees in his backyard, and used a radio placed behind the screen for sound.

The inventor subjected his beta drive-in to vigorous testing: for sound quality, for different weather conditions (Richard used a lawn sprinkler to imitate rain) and for figuring out how to park the patrons' cars. Richard tried lining up the cars in his driveway, which created a problem with line of sight if one car was directly parked behind another car. By spacing cars at various distances and placing blocks and ramps under the front wheels of cars that were further away from the screen, Richard Hollingshead created the perfect parking arrangement for the drive-in movie theater experience.



The first patent for the Drive-In Theater (United States Patent# 1,909,537) was issued on May 16, 1933. With an investment of $30,000, Richard opened the first drive-in on Tuesday June 6, 1933 at a location on Crescent Boulevard, Camden, New Jersey. The price of admission was 25 cents for the car and 25 cents per person.

Help Igor's Friends

The South Lake Animal League is the shelter that Jen and I adopted Igor from last July after Bucky died. Igor wants to help his friends at the South Lake Animal League be able to rescue more dogs and even cats. They need a little help to continue growing, any donation will help. Even a buck.



The South Lake Animal League was established in 1988 to help the abused, abandoned, and neglected animals of Lake County. Started on a non-existent budget by a small group of animal lovers committed to a no-kill policy, the organization soon became an important presence in the growing South Lake area. In the 22 years since the organization began, the League has placed more than 4,500 animals into loving homes.

The League is known statewide for its many unique and heart-warming success stories. Every animal that comes into the League's care receives the best routine and specialized veterinary care, is spayed or neutered, and microchipped. "In the League's long history there has not been a single case where an animal has been put to sleep as a result of being around too long," says League founder, Beth McCabe Priestley. "We remain as faithfully committed to our no-kill policy today as we were when we started."

Since its inception the League relied on a system of foster homes to handle the care, feeding, and socialization of the animals that come its way. While this system had certain advantages, it was always the League's goal to build a centralized permanent adoption center to meet the challenges of a growing Lake County population. On October 9, 2010 the doors to Phase One of A Haven Before A Home Adoption Center opened.

Because the organization receives no state or federal funding, the League relies on the continued support of the community. Many fundraising events have been held over the years such as the Waggin’ Tails Poker Run, Tails on the Trail Dog Walk, and the Arts & Craft Show held at the Lakeridge Winery each December. One of the League's most important sources of operating income is its Thrift Shop located in downtown Clermont.

Despite the remarkable growth and change over the past 22 years, the League has never lost sight of its original goal - to maintain a no kill policy as it helps the abused, abandoned, and neglected animals in the community. With the opening of A Haven Before A Home Adoption Center, the organization is in an excellent position to meet its goal.

Operation Georgia Peach


The South Lake Animal League plans to continue rescue missions like Operation Georgia Peach in which we rescue cats and dogs from high kill areas and from facilities who use painful inhumane methods of killing unwanted pets.
We will always rescue locally as well but as we expand and our team grows, we have the ability to help even more of these pets with the least amount of hope.

To do this we truly need your support. None of this can happen without your help. The Animal League receives no government funding but relies completely on the generosity of people like you who care about the plight of these animals.

Please consider donating to the puppy quarantine area we are trying to obtain. We did a quick conversion of what was to be our kitten nursery so we could take in the pups from Operation Georgia Peach (see our photo album for the story). You can help us save so many more lives by donating even $1. That is far less then a cup of coffee!



Thanks for taking the time to read this.

Vanished Completely

And that's just what he did. He locked the gates and vanished
completely.


I guarantee that I am not legally, morally, ethic'ly, spiritually, physically, positively, absolutely, undeniably or reliably dead! Just busy!
