With Halloween creeping up tomorrow, I thought it’d be appropriate to feature one of, if not THE best song that makes you think of Halloween. To think this music video was created in 1983 still blows my mind. Have a great day on purpose.
Little Office throwback for the Friday before Halloween. If you’re not dressing up this weekend, you’re doing it wrong. Have a great weekend everybody.
Halloween is one of the few holidays that evolve as you get older. Easter, Christmas and Thanksgiving pretty much stay the same no matter how old you get: you hang with your family, you eat too much food, you watch whatever sport is on at the time. Halloween changes drastically from childhood to adult hood. When your a kid, you loved dressing up and going trick or treating (unless you’re one of those really cool people who hate Halloween). You ate to so much candy that you got sick to your stomach but it was totally worth it, because candy is amazing. As you grow up, Halloween becomes the night you dress and go to Halloween parties and drink too much. It’s usually a blast; without adult Halloween parties we’d never have the chance to break up a fight between a member of the Mighty Ducks and a ghost. One part of Halloween that doesn’t change are horror movies. Horror movies and Halloween go together like lamb and tuna fish, and you can’t have a great (or successful) horror movie without a great a villain. Here are our favorite horror movie villains.
Damien Thorn – The Omen
I will never look at children the same way after watching this movie. That probably came out weird, but you get the point. Damien from The Omen was the freakiest, weirdest most deranged child in the history of cinema. He’s got nanny’s hanging themselves and SPOILER ALERT: he’s the fucking Anti-Christ. Masked villains are haunting, but to me there is nothing scarier than a demon disguised as a perfectly normal child. When/if I have children, any friends they bring over are going to have to go through rigorous demon testing. Nobody get’s one over on ole’ Ryan.
The Alien – Alien, Aliens, Alien 3, Alien Resurrection, Alien Versus Predator, Prometheus
“In Space No One Can Hear You Scream”. Probably one of the most memorable horror/thriller lines of all time to go along with the most badass horror movie villain to ever grace the silver screen. The Alien from Alien (and a bunch other movies) is a bad mother fucker who would happily rip your heart clean out of your chest without hesitation. You want suspense in a movie? Watch Alien in the dark, go ahead, I DARE you. That shit is scary no matter how many times you watch it and no matter how old you are. Sure, The Alien isn’t supernatural or demonic, but I can guarantee you that if the girl from “The Ring” saw this dude coming out of a TV set she would run to the well from once she came.

I have no words.
(Source) “A Fargo, N.D., woman says she will give trick-or-treaters that she deems “moderately obese” a letter instead of candy this Halloween.
I just want to send a message to the parents of kids that are really overweight. … I think it’s just really irresponsible of parents to send them out looking for free candy just ’cause all the other kids are doing it,” the woman said in a morning radio interview with Y-24. She wouldn’t identify herself.
The letter states: “You child is, in my opinion, moderately obese and should not be consuming sugar and treats to the extent of some children this Halloween season.”
It continues: “My hope is that you will step up as a parent and ration candy this Halloween and not allow your child to continue these unhealthy eating habits.”
North Dakota State University assistant professor of clinical psychology Katie Gordon told Valley News Live in Fargo that the letter could be more emotionally damaging than helpful.
“It’s just that kind of thing that for some kids, if they’re vulnerable, might trigger major problems,” Gordon said. “Even if a child is overweight, they might be very healthy because of what they eat and how they exercise. It’s ineffective anyway because it’s not likely to help the kid.”
Every year somebody’s got to be the hero. There’s always the one house that hands out pennies or stamps or pencils. Single handedly eliminating obesity by not giving the 25 kids who come to your house candy. Have you seen some of these monsters? They’ll probably eat the pennies. Now you’re giving children copper poisoning. Only a sick son of a bitch would give a kid copper poisoning. But this woman is taking it to the next level. Hand writing letters condemning parents for their obese children? That’s some diabolical shit. Talk about having too much time on your hands. The funny thing is this lady honestly thinks she’s going to win a medal or something for doing this. I really hate these people who think they’re superheroes because they’re denying kids candy for a day. I got news for you: these kids get obese because they’re parents let them eat like shit and they’d rather watch tv and play video games than go outside and move around. One less Snicker’s bar on Halloween isn’t going to change that. Stop trying to be a hero and give the kids what they want: delicious, sugary, chocolatey candy.
P.S. Heartbreak city if you get picked out and given this letter. Those kids will never celebrate Halloween again.
