October Means Halloween!!

So, call me a dork, but I just love Halloween :)  I just love seeing the trees change colors as the nights grow longer, and children dress up in cute costumes to go trick-or-treating door to door for candy treats.  I haven't been home for Halloween since I went to college, so I haven't had the chance to enjoy that aspect of the holiday, but I've still been having fun enjoying spooky stories, scary videos, and other Halloween themed treats.

Every year, I think I'm going to post a whole ton of awesome Halloween stuff, but every year that falls through and I only end up posting a small smattering of things.  This time, I'm not going to try and be too ambitious, but I did want to pass along some fun seasonal treats for all of you.

I think I'll start off with a video.  I thought this was the funniest thing when it first came out, and I'm sure most of you have already heard of it, but for those of you who haven't, I'll provide a bit of background.  So, a few months back, a song came out on the Internet called "Actual Cannibal Shia LeBeouf".  And as far as I know, there was really no reason behind it; the actor is not actually a cannibal.  But, it sounds cool, and it's actually a very funny song (if you understand that it's still very dark).  I've included the song below (this video is my favorite version so far--I love the cartoon characters, and I think it's funny that Shia is drawn to look like Hannibal Lecter).  Also, if you want to learn a bit more about the song, you can read all about it on Cheezburger.com's Know Your Meme, here.



  1. I know you like scary movies. I thought I would mention that I recently watched Poltergeist, from 1982 (the year I was born.)
    It is a pretty legitimate scary movie. You should check it out. I think you would like it.
    I didn't find it scary, but I generally don't get scared by movies anyway...
    I was very impressed by it though.

  2. Ooooh! Thanks, Robby! I'll be sure to check that out :)

  3. Okay... very funny video... and well done, but, can you 'limp off into the woods' with only one leg? Wouldn't you have to hop? Just wondrin'

    Seriously? Ya'll infants haven't seen Poltergeist yet. Damn. Deprived you are. '82... that would be the year I graduated... gads I'm old. Great movie. I second Robbie's suggestion.

  4. Steven,

    Glad you thought it was funny, too :) And I actually was thinking the same thing....I have no idea how one would limp with only one leg. Hmmm....

    And YES! I will be sure to check out Poltergeist :) With two recommendations so far, I'm sure it must be an awesome film!
