Michael's Musings

"We Are To Be Powerful, Beautiful And Without Regret"
Michael Shinafelt

Hello Minions, I am currently three episodes away from finishing Midnight Mass on Netflix. Thus you get vampire Michael landing this week. 

"Yes" vampires and witches are a particular fixation of mine and thus I LOVE this time of year! Here's a fun fact about me, I wanted to be a vampire when I was a pre-teen, the more you know...

I'm loving the Chucky series on SyFy/USA 💓

Only 10 More days until Halloween...!!!

I'm a lynx in the wild, yeah that's the ticket

See Darlin', you are already in my veins

I'm trying to be more positive: "Yesferatu!"

FYI Conservative Christians, spending eternal life with you people is not the selling point you think it is

"Never Stop Dreaming" - Freddy Krueger

In case you didn't know it's Reptile Awareness Day...Yay!

Woman Crush of the Week - Since I'm in a vampire sort of mood, Catherine Deneuve in The Hunger 

Reminder only laugh at things you find funny

Speak things into existence, it's fun, not to mention mysterious 

No, I won't take your stack of hoarded Burger King coupons

Repeat after me: Resident F#ckwheel 

Gotta move on, it's time to feed

Hump Day & Chill

Continuing with the season today's Hump Day & Chill is one Matt Bomer as Donovan from American Horror Story: Hotel featuring Lady Gaga as The Countess. 

There's something about Matt, perhaps it's his chiseled jaw line, his dreamy eyes or maybe it is his supple booty (which I can not show on here, but you can Google.)

Whatever the case Matt was perfection as The Countesses sexually fluid Boy Toy in AHS: Hotel. Not to mention the copious amount of skin he flashes throughout.

The Main Event
Lady Gaga & Matt Bomer

Now that I've whet your appetite and since it's the time of year we watch things that go bump in the night. You may want to check into the "Hotel" with Matt for a Hump Day & Chill.

Hey naughty boys need love too!!!

Cheers!

To All Of Us
Hailee Steinfeld

It's Tuesday October 19th 2021 and if you have made it to this point in the History of the world then you deserve a toast.

As 2021 is drawing to a close let's try to focus on what we have, rather than what we don't have. Treat each new day like an adventure and try (this one's tough for me) not to be cynical.

It's the little things in life that are actually the big ones. Trust me on this.

So join Me & Hailee Steinfeld in a cocktail won't you and toast to all of us! 

Cheers!

Monday Mood

Got Sow?
The Exorcist

After a lovely weekend, heading into the new week feels like my head is spinning. "Yes" my Monday Mood is definitely on point with the season. Hey, it's a mere thirteen days until Halloween and I've got so many things to attend to, naturally.

I've got this and so do you. 

So what are you waiting for Minions? Time to bend it like Regan in The Exorcist and get those heads spinning!

Mic Drop!

"Evil Dies Tonight"

"Halloween Kills"

 "He breathes, he kills" - Laurie Strode, Halloween Kills

This is my favorite teaser for Halloween Kills, and it is an accurate description of the film. "Yes" Minions there is a lot of killing in this installment of the Halloween franchise, I mean a lot! TBH I did laugh a handful of times at a couple of the kills, you know how sometimes when you watch a horror film the way someone is offed can actually be so over the top that...yep!

While I am not going to review it I promised yesterday that I would tell you what I thought so here goes. I enjoyed it, I didn't love it, but it was still fun and I got what I came for a good old fashioned slasher flick.

Also it paid homage to the original Halloween II with Jamie Lee Curtis, much like 2018's Halloween paid homage to the original.

Halloween II as you may recall had Jamie Lee's Laurie Strode sidelined in the hospital on the same night as her battle with Michael Myers. Likewise in Halloween Kills. Also Halloween II was basically a slasher flick with a body count, Halloween Kills follows suit.

Last but not least there was an angry mob outside of the Myers house in Halloween II, that idea takes center stage in Halloween Kills.

So there is my take on Halloween Kills Minions. Only 14 more days until, well you know!!!

What's New Pussycat?

Meow!
Vanessa Hudgens

Thus the countdown to Halloween continues with a scant 15 days left till the High Holy Day. Here is another of my favorite celebrity Season of the Witch costumes, why it's none other than Vanessa Hudgens as the Michelle Pfeiffer version of Catwoman from Batman Returns.

She captioned this awesome pic on Instagram: "Who needs a Batman when u can have a Batdog"

Cute, but not nearly as fetching as Hudgens is in the get up, she really gives Michelle Pfeiffer a run for her money donning the same Pussycat garb.

Speaking of Halloween, catching Halloween Kills today, whether fans like it or not there is one thing they all seem to agree on - It's the most violent Halloween film in the series.

I will let you know my thoughts tomorrow, in the meantime stay spooky!
