The Two True Freaks Podcast’s Halloween Special: The Haunted Mansion

I finally managed to locate season 1 (season 2 is easily found on the WB’s website) of Pushing Daisies, and rewatched large chunks to refresh my memory. So I can place the series back into my fandom offerings for Yuletide.

So after the last of the reshuffling, the fandoms I’m offering (unless I trade out The Mummy for Indiana Jones again) are: Fright Night (1985), Back to the Future, The Mummy series, Ghostbusters, Pushing Daisies, Addams Family (1991). And the Bucket List includes: Van Helsing (2004), Mockingbird Lane, Lost Skeleton of Cadavra, Anno Dracula Series—Kim Newman, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: 1996, A Study In Emerald—Neil Gaiman, Mannequin, Soapdish (1991), Addams Family (tv 1964).

Just received word from Donna that we’ve hit the end of the road with Nellie and her pancreatic cancer. She’s in the hospital now, having refused hospice at home. Hospice is apparently (didn’t realize they did that in the hospital) just across the hall from her current room in the hospital, so they plan to move her over there.

Finally heard from Phillip (Mom’s brother)—where he’s at, Sandy didn’t dump too much. He’s currently just outside the zone where it would be, so he only received high winds. Meanwhile, all family in Louisiana are fine as of the last anyone heard, since it didn’t go there.

Nicol Williamson passed away on December 16th, at the age of 75, following a two-year struggle with esophageal cancer. May he rest in peace. Sherlock Holmes fans will remember him in the lead role from The Seven Per-Cent Solution. He was also the Nome King/Dr. Worley in Return to Oz, Merlin in 1981’s Excalibur, Cogliostro in Spawn, and Father Morning in The Exorcist III. Despite Return to Oz scarring me when I was little, I catch it whenever it’s on Flix. The Seven Per-Cent Solution is one of my favorite Holmes movies.

Official White House petition to veto SOPA First link goes to the article, second to the actual petition—over 51,000 signatures as of the last time I checked. There’s also a petition to end ACTA.

An official synopsis for The Amazing Spider-Man.

ABC ordered a Beauty and the Beast pilot. Not to be confused with the one the CW just picked up.

The strange or ill-advised movie sequels that never were. Check out the insanity the Gladiator sequel would have been.

Adapting Sherlock: Series 2. This is a lovely article on the canon of the season, so if you haven’t watched the season yet, beware the spoilers.

Stan Lee reflects on 70 years in comics.

Another notification of a journal purging came through. This time, for [ profile] kinross_shewolf. I only used that one briefly for a game that died, but I never posted in the journal. So I’m fine with that one being swallowed by Frank the Goat. (The username originated for me on Greatestjournal for a different game, before I moved stuff over to Insanejournal—just happened to use it once more here on LJ.)

Far enough back that I could still do what I liked without ripping the time stream asunder. Not so far back that I would be forced to deal with a lack of indoor plumbing and forced into wearing a corset.

If this question means in my own personal history, on the other hand, I haven't a clue. Maybe somewhere in the 1980's.

Adrienne Palicki will play Wonder Woman in David E. Kelley’s series. I’ve apparently only seen her in an episode of Smallville a while back, so I don’t know if she’s right for the role or not.

She-Ra turns 25 years old.

From Sci Fi Wire: William Shatner And Seven Others Recite Poe’s The Raven. The others include Stan Lee, Vincent Price, Christopher Lee, John Astin, James Earl Jones, Christopher Walken, and The Simpsons. Vincent Price will always be my favorite.

On the side of news that isn’t really news: Supposedly Dan Ackroyd will be writing Ghostbusters 3.

WKYQ has their (constantly updated from what I can tell) list of local haunted houses up. Tonight, I’ll be going to a haunted house—The Haunted Barn. I tried to go last year, but couldn’t find it. So Dad and I drove out where it was supposed to be this year, and figured out why. We turned right last year, when we should have turned left. Due to that, we missed it entirely and were one street off.

On the 30th, I’ll go to the Zombie Walk, and try not to run over any trick-or-treaters or zombies. As of now, there’s no word on if Maiden Alley Cinema will be showing horror movies this year.
