+My favorite posts this month:
-National Coming Out Day
-Juliet Bad Romance
+New music I've been pumped about (because I haven't read any new blogs, recommend me some?)
-Tom Waits, Bad As Me
-Yo-Yo Ma, Stuart Duncan, Edgar Meyer & Chris Thile, The Goat Rodeo Sessions (here they are performing Attaboy)
-Drake, Take Care (here's Headlines)
+Movies I've watched:
-Season 1 of The Walking Dead, because I need something to replace True Blood on Sundays. I really LOVE the effects, but the character building is somewhat lacking in some areas - especially the female characters (Lori has never killed a zombie on screen, for example).
-ALL SORTS OF GOODNESS at the Hot Springs Documentary Film Fest
-The Perfect Vagina, which is online and free! It's from a filmmaker out of the UK and documents her journey learning about labiaplasty or "why we should love our lady bits rather than cut them up.". If you have a vulva, you should watch this. I had some great conversations about it!
-Twilight, I love love love debating the zeitgeist of Twilight. I'm so happy it exists. I'm going to go see Breaking Dawn with a friend this month! Teen Girl Squad activate!
-Paranormal Activity 3, eh it was better than the second one. I have this Halloween tradition of going to see really bad scary movies on Halloween. Last year's was The Last Exorcism.
+YouTube Videos that made me teehee:
-Nicki Minaj sings Super Bass with one of her littlest fans!
-Rethink Breast Cancer presents: Your Man Reminder
-It's better than drinking? Guinness World Records - Largest Collection of Clowns
-Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark: Cemetery Soup (These guys have more Scary Stories on their channel and have mad film-making skills! Super fun to see these stories brought to life!)
-Make an ami fishie out of plarn! I'm getting a bit obsessed with crochet...
-skelemingos and OMG WHERE CAN I GET A DEVIL ELF ON A SHELF?!?!?!
-Lady Gaga-o-lantern (from Telephone).
-"The ad shows Rick Genest, who you may know as Zombie Boy and have seen him in the Lady Gaga Born this Way video, being completely covered with Dermablend Leg & Body foundation. If you didn’t know who he was, the beginning of this video would probably not shock you (but the end would!) as his skin looks perfect- you can’t tell that he’s COVERED in tattoos from head to toe. This ad had me go out and buy some Dermablend concealer the next day, no joke!"
-The Miss Fat and Beautiful Contest, circa 1960
+Exciting happenings IRL:
-Christmas crafting begins!
-I see a light at the end of the tunnel for this semester at school!
-Thanksgiving recipe testing starts this week!
|Mum made us jack-o-peppers for Halloween!|
|Lucky cats from an Asian grocery store (I got the orange nom nom nom one!)|
|The Arkansas State Fair from the top of the ferris wheel!|
|Sassy alpaca at the fair!|
|Matt's doodle hung in an art gallery in Hot Springs!|
|Some of my plastic pumpkin collection on my porch!|
+Big Girls Don't Cry Hotness of the Month:
-Fighting aliens with a hot pink hair dryer. Hiiii-ya!
And that's about it folks! I love October! There's just so many fun things to do! I'm a total Octoberist. How awesome was October for you?
