Spooked and Haunted

So I’ve been really busy getting married to my fiance… Excuse me, WIFE, Laura, this past month. (The ceremony was short and simple at a court house and the “reception” was at Long Horn Steakhouse.) Likewise, I’ve also been busy with my job and preparing to take on a new class at the end of October. My busy-ness isn’t going to slow down any time soon, BUT, since October is here, I feel the need. The need for HALLOWEEN!

Halloween In June Spook Factor Double Feature!

You didn’t really think I’d let an entire Halloween in June go by without a single post from me, did you?

Well, to satisfy your urge for entertainment, I have not one, but TWO BRAND NEW EXCLUSIVE SPOOK FACTOR VIDEOS!

The first is a scripted review of the Buffy Animated Series Pilot!

Did you know that Buffy the Vampire Slayer once almost had a fully animated spin-off series? Find out the details in this week’s Spook Factor!

Spook Factor Special: Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party

Hello, fellow fright fans! Instead of the usual Crypt-ober post today, I thought I’d share a video that Laura and I put together. We visited Walt Disney World recently and decided to make a vlog-style video about Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.

Music was taken from Mickey’s Boo To You Parade. We do not own it. Music in the background of one of the talking sections is Thriller by Michael Jackson. We don’t own that either.

Why did this show take so long? Life got in the way. BUT! We’re back and I’m already working on the next script. I’m really happy with how this came out. Hopefully, I can get the show running at least semi-regularly. Enjoy and feel free to leave a comment below!

Revenge of Halloween in June!

I refuse to let yet another June pass me by without celebrating my favorite made-up holiday! June is upon us and Halloween is months away. Well, no longer! Along with the Longbox of the Damned’s Midsummer Nightmare, I am celebrating my favorite holiday several months early, all month long! That’s right, for the first time in a long while, I vow to have at least 1 article up every day in June! The topic? Anything and everything Halloween-y.


Every day in June, I will have creepy content for you to peruse and enjoy. There will be Flicking Through Netflix articles, random reviews, top 10 lists, maybe some editorials, and so on. I even hope to have at least one video up this month!  So, consider this the official start of our month long celebration of all things macabre! Welcome back to Halloween in June! We’re bound to have a frightfully good time.


A Spooky Hiatus

I think this is the first time I’m officially announcing a hiatus for something. Weird.

So, a few life things have happened in my family in the last week. Namely, after a successful hip surgery in December, my grandmother had a pretty nasty fall. She’s fine now, but they did have to operate on the hip again.

What does this mean for me and, more importantly, you? Well, it’s been decided that my grandmother, when she gets out of rehab, should have some constant care for a while. Unfortunately, as it stands, my family can only really afford a day-time nurse for a few hours at a time. Thus, one of us needs to move in with her. Namely, me.

So, I’ll be moving in with my grandma for a while to help her, make sure she doesn’t slip and have another fall, etc. This means… No new Spook Factors for few months. (I’m just as disappointed as you that I’ve only had ONE fricking episode and already have to go on hiatus.)

Unfortunately, I don’t feel comfortable filming while living with her. It’s a quiet neighborhood with nosey neighbors. I would just rather put the show on hiatus than deal with trying to explain what stupid thing I’m doing that week. I’m not gonna let the time go to COMPLETE waste, though. I do plan on continuing my blog and drawing like I have been. I also plan on getting a head start on some other scripts (the scripting for episode 2 is already about half way done).

So, sorry, folks. But the Spook Factor’s taking a long break. But I’ll be back (hopefully) before the summer! Until next time, I’ll see you around the campfire!

The Spook Factor: The Runaway Brain

It’s the very first episode of my brand new video series, The Spook Factor!

In our first episode, I take a look at Disney’s 90s horror short, Mickey Mouse in Runaway Brain! Stay tuned after the credits for a bit of a blooper!
