Skywatch Friday: It was a dark and stormy night

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

It’s Halloween’s eve; I thought it would be good time to get my creepy on.

I originally shared this image, here, but felt it a perfect choice for Halloween’s Eve, don’t you?

Well, not exactly but thanks to photo-editing I turned an ordinary day shot of an exceptionally interesting tree into a dark and stormy night with a scary, gnarly tree.

For more bizarre or not-so-creepy sky shots join photo enthusiasts across the net on Skywatch Friday .

It’s time for Celebrate the small things.

I celebrate….

  • that there aren’t any such things as zombies, vampires, werewolves, and other scary supernatural forces.
  • the talents of screenwriters/novelist imaginative minds who breathe life into these creepy monsters in their manuscripts or upon the big screen for our entertainment.
  • all things yummy… caramel apples, bite size candy bars, caramel corn, pumpkin spiced lattes, and hot chocolate.
  • the sweet memories of trick or treating from my childhood and of my children.
  • above all else that I have never experienced any real life horror stories

Life should be celebrated, even when it seems like you have no reason to celebrate. Just look around, I bet you’ll see something good! What are you celebrating?

One way to celebrate is with  Friendship Friday and Friday Features Linky Party, where you’re sure to make new friends and get lots of inspiration to boot!

Have a safe and fun Halloween! Join me on Sunday for November 1st edition of Battle of the Band. Thanks for visiting. Until we meet on the other side of the lens, have a fototastic day!

#TheListingHop 5 of the scariest movies I’ve seen #music

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

This is the last Monday in the month, kittens & dawgs. The year is flying away like a witch on a broomstick. I’m pulling together a theme based 2-for-1 post with 5 of the scariest movies I’ve seen.

Let’s get started!

#1 Psycho

 

Everyone has to agree the shower scene is the heart-stopping moment in this flick. It’s definitely the most memorable. We didn’t have a shower when I saw this movie and afterwards I never wanted to take a shower. Years later I learned that shower sales declined sharply after people saw this movie. Talk about movie persuasion!

 

#2 Jaws

 

The opening scene with the gal taking a late night dip in the ocean struck real terror in my heart. Not only did it scare me to death, it roused a hidden fear that I have of deep water and since then if my feet can’t touch the bottom (excluding swimming pools), then I curl my legs up to my chest.

 

#3 The Exorcist

 

The wickedest part of this was the whole head turning completely around thing, regurgitating on the priest, bed levitation, creepy demonic voice in this movie. It sorta left me a bit traumatized because I know there are such things as demons and this truly raised the hairs on my head.

#4 Friday the 13th

 

Up until this point, I had NO idea what horror films were really like and honestly after all that slice and dice, thinking the bad guy is dead, but really isn’t stuff then this totally turned me against these sorts of flicks. This stuff actually happens. What was I thinking of? Anywho, after the first terrifying scene where I pierced DH’s ear drums and the people sitting the row in front us with a shrill pitch that surprisingly escaped my lips, and then I sat in the theater the rest of the time with my hands ready to cover my eyes, which was often, until the movie ended. Boy, was I ever happy when that movie was over!

#5 Alien

 

Science Fiction is a different kind of creepy and I’m pretty sure this sorta thing can NEVER happen. However, near the beginning of this flick where the “Alien infant” bursts out of that man’s robbed me of six of my seven lives on the spot. I screamed. I jumped. I pulled my feet into my chair (and, I’m pretty sure that’s where they stayed the whole time). It was seriously good scary stuff. The best part is I looked forward to a possible second movie.

Thanks for joining this scaredy-Cathy, but before you go, I invite you to visit Bish and her co-host, Alex. The duo responsible for this blogging community event.

Now, let’s keep the party going, link up and join the fun with the Monday’s Music Moves Me crew for a spooktacular time.

And, this is a scary thing in itself! Have a safe and happy Halloween!

Sunday Sillies: Reminants of Halloween #humor

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

This week while watching prime TV programs had a Halloween theme, but…the commercials were promoting Christmas! Is that wacky or what? I just had to laugh at the madness of it all.  Anywho, I missed the last two weeks due to my blogging hiatus and I know everyone needs some laughs. Although, it’s November and we’re l looking forward to the next holiday, I thought I would share these last Halloween giggles.

#WW: Spooky Manor

This month I’m taking a hiatus. There will be no featured photographers, but I’m keeping the linky party going and will do return visits in short order.

I originally shared this image with you last year. This is Greystone Manor, which is home to WATE-TV here in town. I decided to turn it into a Spooky Manor using Photoshop by converting the image to B&W and adding some ghostly overlays provided by Obsidian Dawn.



How many ghosts do you see? Have a safe Halloween. Thanks for stopping by. Have a fototastic day!

Saturday Song-suasion 61: Brad McBride

In case you haven’t read, I’m taking a break this month. Although, I unplugged myself from the world beyond my computer, I did think before hand about my lovelies and threw together a whole month of music for your enjoyment.

With Halloween only days away, I felt it my obligation to put a little creep in today’s music. Instead of a featured artist, I present you with the imaginative YouTube creations by Brad McBride.

The first video is a 2-hour haunted virtual fireplace and thunderstorm,


and the second is a haunting 8-hour thunderstorm!

 

You gotta love this guy’s sense of humor and fantastic sound effects. You may want to check out his library of sound effects for sale at VirtualDreamer.com. This is the place to visit if you like soundscapes!

Thank you for making me a part of your weekend. I hope you enjoyed your visit. In fact, I hope you enjoyed it so much that you cannot wait to tell your friends. Go ahead, hit the share (Facebook, Twitter, Google+) button! You know you wanna. 😉


Have a songsational Saturday!
