I spent my Friday the 13th at Alamo Drafthouse for the Tommy Jarvis trilogy, which is where you should have been. I only intended to stay for two of the three films, but had so much fun I stayed until the last credits rolled and the lights came up. I was exhausted at work the next morning, but I regret nothing. Besides sitting in a theater full of fans and a wandering Jason Voorhies, there were contests for the new Blu-ray boxed sets, and Halloween Express donated hockey masks:
Though not on the web’s calendar yet, October’s highlights were mentioned so I imagine I’ll be spending quite a bit more time here next month.
Also Friday the 13th marked the kickoff for my Halloween planning and diy projects. A co-worker brought in a porcelain doll she found at a thrift store, and after seeing this, I promptly ripped off the doll’s head and hair. I skipped the video’s instructions on using a razor to remove the glue and used nail polish remover. It worked beautifully and without any damage to myself or the doll head.
So I picked up a night light this afternoon and now have a new object to terrorize friends with:
So I plan on sneaking this into the homes of unsuspecting friends to test the creep factor. If successful then I’m thinking of attempting another and giving it a more Halloween-esque paint job.
