In the Halloween Spirit!

I might not have been the biggest Friends fan,
but I do heart Phoebe & Supergirl.

This post is actually not about Friends, Phoebe or Supergirl,
but it is definitely about Halloween!

Halloween is my favourite holiday out of the year!
Yes, even above my birthday and Christmas!

And since it is Halloween weekend I wanted to share with you
the top 3 movies that get me in the Halloween spirit!

*The Labyrinth (1986)*
It is so 80s and so absolutely fantastic!

*Hocus Pocus (1993)*
I know this is one EVERYONEs list!

*The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975)*
Do I even need to say anything?

I watch these 3 movies year round and then of course
again and again over this weekend every year!

Of course there are many more...
My Honorable Mention:
*The Great Pumpkin*

Please share in the comments
what movies do you watch during the Halloween season?!

A Great Day for the Whedon "Family"

Today the internet kerSPLODED over the announcement of 
Much Ado About Nothing 'the movie based on a play'...

And as a gal of the Whedonverse and a theatre addict,
not to mention Much Ado is my favorite Shakespeare play,
my nerd kerSPLODED along with the rest of the internet!

Seriously, I AM SO EXCITED!

Unfortunately Much Ado will be hitting the festival circut first
and then maybe it will get a limited or indie release.

&& in other 'Whedon film family' news

As of today the Lust for Love kickstarter 
reached it's $70,000 fundraising goal with 17 days still on the ticker!!

What is Lust for Love??
You may recognize Fran Kranz from the cast list of Much Ado!
& YES! I decided to be a backer!

"You Selected Pledge $35 or more

A pre-release Kickstarter supporter edition TWO DISC Lust for Love DVD
signed by the lead cast (includes the movie, director and
cast commentaries, the making of featurette,
cast & crew interviews, the Remains music video,
and Shiv a short film starring Enver Gjokaj*  directed by Anton King).
Also includes the videoblog access, and the website thank you above."

They will start shooting Lust for Love in December
and the expected delivery for my DVD of Epicness is June 2012!

*Not gonna lie, Enver is a huge reason I went $35 instead of $25 ;)

What can I say??
It has been been a shiny day for the Whedonverse!!

Return of the Etsy Purchases

Here are 3 reasons that my internet should get turned off at midnight.

  • 80s Cream TShirt Dress
    I plan to hem it to knee length.
  • Hand-made patch-work dress made from vintage plaid fabric
    Love the sweethart shape and it ties like a halter in the back!

  • Simple Pink 60s Dress
    A purchase inspired by watching Pan Am & The Playboy Club
And they all are pocket dresses! <3

I am a little nervous about size. 
But then again, if they don’t fit, I’ll just re-sell them!

I am a victim.

I am a victim.

I am a victim of the crush-worthy moments in British pop culture.

For example...
Love Actually is basically a love letter to London.

(with the help and energy of an amazing friend
I took the first step in my dream to do
The Director/Producer is the lead creative artist on set. He or she will communicate with the talent what is exactly needed to convey a particular scene. Often times the Director/Producer will be heavily involved in the casting, script editing, scene selection, and shot composition.
So happy. So inspired.
So full of Brain Crack and Word Vomit.

So nervous that I will wake up tomorrow and be too busy to remember this feeling.
