"Where Are The Freaks? I'm Getting Bored!"

Spiders To The Max!
It's October, my faaaaaaaavorite time of year, and anyone who follows this blog knows why. 

Because it's when the freaks come out, not just at night, but twenty-four hours seven days a week..Wicked!

Yep, I am a horror junkie, thus I love Halloween and to me, it is a month long celebration.

Thus every year at this time all posts I make for the entire month will be directly or, via my creative imagination, related to the high holy day.

A few examples of last year's horrific fun for those who might be uninitiated are:

Which Way To Pet Sematary?
An interview with Fiona Dourif, the daughter of Chucky literally. About her lead role in the latest sequel to the homicidal doll series Curse of Chucky.

Margaret Cho on her love of Ouija Boards.

Traci Lords chiming in on why she avoids mirrors.

Also, there is my annual Halloween fun with fellow horror lover, author M.E. Franco.

Yes, I do have some awesome shocks, cool surprises and freaky stuff coming your way this month, but most of all, prepare to be entertained!

The photos accompanying this piece are courtesy of Me, Myself and I. They were shot at Horror/Supernatural/Erotic author James Buchanan's annual Halloween shindig.

Speaking of "freaky" let's kick off October 1st 2014 with the latest trailer via Buzzfeed for American Horror Story: Freak Show...Step right up, Boo!

                                                                  Look, It's The Freaks!

Avi Kaplan is "All About That Bass"

Mario, Avi & Naomi Are Hungry!

How perfect is this Pentatonix fans? Avi Kaplan the baritone of the super group has a cover out of All About That Bass by Meghan Trainor.

As you know that's why Meghan recorded it in the first place, so this song that is tailor made to Mr. Kaplan's talents would be done by him Avi style. You know I'm kidding, right?!

Avi has brought along a couple of partners in crime to accompany him as well. This song make-over also features Mario Jose and Naomi Samilton. Along with two plates of french fries and one plate stacked with cheeseburgers...Yummy!

I'd like a cheeseburger, fries and a side of bass please!

Tonight's The Night: Courtney Love SOA

It's "Anarchy": Katey Sagal, Courtney Love & Ally Walker
Tonight Courtney Love makes her debut on the final season of Sons of Anarchy, Hell to the Y-E-S!!!

It's been too long Courtney, glad to see you acting again in a high profile production. Sons of Anarchy is a righteous show and Ms. Love will be a perfect fit.

The Hole front woman is responsible for, what is, to me one of the best performances ever committed to film when she starred as Althea Flynt opposite Woody Harrelson as Larry Flynt, in The People vs, Larry Flynt.

She was the best thing about the film and burnt a hole, no pun intended, through the screen for which she earned a Golden Globe nomination.

Paging Emmy.

Tune in for some "Anarchy" at:

Streisand Sunday

Color Me Barbara, I'll Be Your Mistress Tonight

While I do enjoy Barbara Streisand in her many endeavors and career makeovers let me state I am not cuckoo for her like most men who, well love other men.

To be honest I am not bonkers over any gifted performer anymore, I merely admire the talent and think how cool it is that the person has it.

However here is a side of Barbara S we haven't seen in years and is quite fun, not to mention, shall we say sexual.

Leather Makes The World Go Round
Streisand, as I always at some point thought she should have simply gone by this moniker a long time ago, like Cher, Madonna or Kesha. Does have a playful, not to mention naughty side. One that might even make you want to call her Mistress.

The ubiquitous one did a film a spell ago titled, The Owl and The Pussycat with George Segal & the synopsis goes like this:

Can a bickering odd couple in Manhattan become friends and maybe more? Owlish Felix is an unpublished writer who vents his frustration by reporting to the super that the woman in a neighboring flat takes the occasional payment for sex. She's Doris, more wildcat than pussycat, and when Felix's peeping-tom-tattle-tale routine gets her bounced from her apartment, she knocks at his door at 3 AM, aggressive and ticked off. They yell, lose another apartment, and pick up where they left off in a friend's flat and beyond. Dancing by the light of the moon seems unlikely for this owl and pussycat. 

Hey Cher, I'll Show You A Tramp, Without The Gypsies & Thieves
Oh my! Payments for sex whatever will they come up with next?!

In honor of her decades long career, chutzpah and recent number one charting album Partners I hereby declare today Streisand Sunday and bequeath you with these rare photos of Mistress Barbara, grab a Mimosa at brunch and toast. Cheers!

With their latest CD PTX Volume III out now, Pentatonix have once again teamed with Rock Star violinist Lindsey Stirling.

As you may recall the six of them paired before for the Award Winning cover of Imagine Dragons Radioactive.

Well this time they cover a song that I have never heard of, but you guys may have Papaouti by Stromae. Rumor has it this guy with the single moniker is big in Europe, groovy! I am now aware and will check him out..!

Pentatonix always brings it on new music wise.

In it the gang of six play toys. Toys are great at any age, and this video is da bomb!

The PTX/Stirling collaboration is here again and the result is, as with the last time, Award Winning caliber. Cut to the jump and get your Papaouti on!

Alicia Keys - Happy "Bump Day"

Alicia Keys, Peace
"I don't care what your differences are with your Moms. If you can do it. Hold them and tell them that you love them" - Erik Rimmer

What a lovely sentiment from a special guy.

Everyone must know how much I love the site of a nude pregnant woman by now...after my post about Christina Aguilera how could you not?

Well the lovely and talented Ms. Alicia Keys is the latest on the list to show her glow, and it's for charity. With an awesome peace sign emblazoned across her tummy, so cool!

Alicia's goal is to connect her millions of fans with reputable organizations tackling big issues, from hunger and poverty to LGBT rights and gun violence. Keys has donated $1 million to be split among 12 groups and released a new song, "We Are Here," to get even more attention.

In honor of Ms. Keys and her bundle of joy. I am going to publish the link to the twelve charity's that this photo was meant to benefit.

As she states: "People won't be able to ignore this visual."

Hey Alicia, nobody does it sent to you and yours. 

Remember, Mom's Rule! Happy "Bump Day!"
