Michael's Musings

What's That On Your Head? A Purple Ankh!
Michael Shinafelt
What's that you say? Why did I draw a purple Ankh on my head? Because today is LGBTQ Spirit Day! A community of which I am proud to be a part of. Support them and take a stand against bullying people, really we do have the power!

This was also the week of a movement spearheaded by Alyssa Milano. In response to the whole Harvey Weinstein debacle, those of us who have had sexual violations in our life are urged to keep the dialogue flowing with #metoo if we have suffered such abuse.

Well let's start this weeks column off on a note of positive energy, shall we?

#metoo

The Ankh is the Egyptian symbol of  life. I have one tattooed above my right ankle. Thus my use of it this week in honor of LGBTQ Spirit Day.

Oooooops! Ryan Murphy did it again, like he always does. As American Horror Story is headed into the home stretch he comes up with some grafted on story line that really has nothing to do with the rest of the show to accommodate a famous person who wants to guest star. In this case Lena Dunham as Valerie Solanas - pointless and boring, I was on Instagram most of the show. You'd think he'd learn, but no.

WTF?! Zac Efron Turns 30!

17 Again, Not!
Zac Efron
In real life I am attracted to guys who are basically in the vicinity of my actual age. The same goes for the world of entertainment. This being stated all of you out there know I have a thing for Zac Efron who turns 30 today! WTF?! Where does the time go, I ask you. Yep, once you hit 21 people...

Now here's the kicker. I really don't follow celebrity Birthdays, with the exception of the ones I know personally. I happened upon it being my "Boy Crushes" big day whilst I was paying a visit to Tye Briggs Favorite Hunks & Other Things

What makes me pine for Zac? Perhaps it is those piecing blue eyes, that square jawline, his hot body or maybe, just maybe his sense of humor. I know what it is and I'm gonna let you make that decision for yourself. That's correct I'm not going to cry uncle on this one, so fluff up your pillow and dream.

All I know is you can see a whole lotta Zac and his Birthday Suit at the NSFW link below.

Happy Hump Day, indeed!!!

My Boy Zac is on display for your perusal right here, right now -

The Horror! Author M.E. Franco

She'll Put A Spell On You
M.E. Franco
It's that time of the year again minions, Halloween! Which also means it's time for the annual Season of the Witch tradition here at Entertain Me of chatting up fellow Horror/Halloween fan, author M.E. Franco.

M.E. is the author of the popular books the Dion Series which consists of Where Will You Run, Where Will You Turn & Where Will You Hide.

She is here to answer anything I throw at her, and she did! Shall we play games? Because...

"This is Halloween, everybody make a scene, Trick or treat till the neighbors gonna die of fright" - Marilyn Manson from Nightmare Before Christmas 

MS: What scares you most, clowns or cockroaches?

ME: That's a tough one. I can outrun cockroaches, so I'd have to choose clowns. They're faster than they look. MS: Tell me what famous horror archetype is your spirit animal

ME: I can't be the cheerleader or the virgin, so I'd have to go with the nerd
F#ck
Jigsaw

MS: Let's play F#ck, Marry or Kill with these three names. Pennywise, Jigsaw & Michael Myers.

ME: Brutal. The clown has to go. I'd have kinky sex with Jigsaw, and I'd marry Michael. He's quiet. He wouldn't talk back if I asked him to take out the garbage. MS: Do you believe in life after love? Or more simply put, ghosts?

ME: Yes. I haven't seen one yet, but I keep looking.
Kill
Pennywise
MS: Which of the sexy men in your Dion series of books would you be for a day?

ME: I love Raith, but I'd be Reinn since he can travel anywhere MS: Being him what would you do?

ME: I would travel the world, and feed off people who piss me off. LOL


Marry
Michael Myers
MS: You are a supernatural being, tell me what you would be and how you would roll.

ME: Vampire, no question - long life, riches, power, great hair. The blood thing is a little gross, but I'd get past it. I'd travel the world and party with my friends. I'd have to give up tanning though. Sad face. MS: Whose plastic surgery is scarier, Caitlyn Jenner or Wayne Newton?

ME: Wayne Newton scares the sh*t out of me. No lie. MS: Do you dress up for Halloween?

ME: Every year! MS: Tell me the scariest thing that has ever happened to you during the Season Of The Witch.

ME: When I was a junior in high school, I made the mistake of listening to a friend of mine. She suggested we dress up like a pimp and prostitute and go trick or treating. I told her we were too old, but she kept bugging me until I gave in. Unfortunately, I was the prostitute. I never thought about all of the dads and grandpas who would be opening the doors. Got offered more tricks than treats that year! Scariest Halloween ever! LOL

Want more M.E? Of course you do. Get your horror on with her on Social Media at:

Horror Hunk: David Naughton


"I'm a Pepper he's a Pepper she's a Pepper we're a Pepper wouldn't you like to be a pepper too?" Dr. Pepper Commercial, Starring David Naughton 

I remember crushing on cutie David Naughton while seeing him sing about the most obtuse soft drink on the market, Dr. Pepper. Does anyone out there really know someone who likes it? Asking for a friend.


Well when David snagged the lead in a movie of my favorite genre, horror I was completely thrilled. The hunky soft drink guy would be portraying an American abroad in a werewolf film that would become a horror/comedy classic An American Werewolf in London.


Being that the year was 1981 my Dad, the person who had cultivated my interest in the genre had to take me and my friends as I was sixteen. On the edge of seventeen, the age one needs to be to attend an "R" rated movie without a parent or guardian. 


My, What Big Balloons You Have!
David Naughton
Now here's the kicker. what I was not expecting was it to arouse my crush on Naughton even further. You go it, David got totally naked in a good portion of the film. We are not simply addressing the usual booty shots that horror offers up of the male species. We are talking about going all the way with full frontal nudity.

Upon seeing these visions of David Naughton, I was in a total state of, shall we say, excitement. David was the star of many of my fantasies for bit, you know being a 16 year old guy and such.


If you are questioning what I'm just saying, well I will offer you visual proof via Tye Briggs Favorite Hunks & Other Things. Oh yeah, that's right, get your horror Schwing on mighty!


Here is the NSFW link, prepare thyself to emerge into a Schwinging stupor of epic proportions!

Do You Believe In Magic? See/Saw

Extra! Extra! Read All About It!
See/Saw
Tis' the Season of the Witch

Atlas Obscura presents See/Saw, an evening with performer and award-winning magician Siegfried Tieber. Opening on Thursday, September 14, 2017 and running for seven weeks, Tieber will play host, historian, and illusionist as he guides intimate audiences on an unconventional journey. An immersion into a magician’s mind, See/Saw is an invitation to take a closer look at the art of conjuring with playing cards: a contemporary take on an ancient art form, where the important question isn’t how, but why. This limited engagement will take place at Civic Center Studios in Downtown Los Angeles. Our host’s ambition is to share (and infect us with) his passion for a beautiful but often misunderstood art form.

Directed by Magic Castle/Academy of Magical Arts magician Jon ArmstrongSee/Saw will run from September 14 through October 29, 2017; six shows per week, over four days each week. Various showtimes (please refer to the ticketing link). Civic Center Studios – located at 207 South Broadway, Los Angeles, CA 90012 – is a secret hideaway nestled inside the historic core of Downtown Los Angeles. Formerly the office of criminal defense attorney Max Solomon (Bugsy Siegel and Mickey Cohen's lawyer), today this brick and steel den is a production studio and cultural center for artists and musicians. Find the hidden entrance in the parking lot next to the subterranean speakeasy, Birds & Bees. Tickets cost $74 per person. Recommended ages for audience members is 16+. Since opening night, audience members have been greeted by the enchanting duo of Dahlia and Dia Taquali. For more information, please visit http://www.atlasobscura.com/seesaw.
Dahlia & Dia Taquali
“In our culture, we are often exposed to film and theatre and music and dance—all these glorious, beautiful, inspiring means of expression,” Ecuadorian-born, Los Angeles-based Tieber explains. “However, most people don’t often encounter magic performed live. In order to appreciate the enormous potential of this fascinating, deep, complex art form, it has to be experienced up close.”

THE EXPERIENCE –
Card Magic has been lauded as “the poetry of magic.” Due to its versatility and range, the deck of cards is paralleled with the piano. More than mere printed pieces of paper, this instrument embodies chance, chaos and luck. See/Saw is an invitation to take a closer look at the art of conjuring with playing cards: an immersive experience, an intimate audience – sleeves rolled up.

Much more than a traditional entertainment, this is an interactive experience. Our host takes us by the hand – metaphorically, that is – through an evening that integrates an exploration of the environment, a private performance and a candid conversation about the art of magic.
Siegfried Tieber

Here's a video peek of what's in store.

"We believe there is something new to discover, every day, all over the world—and around the corner."
