Cautionary tales of Halloween danger

When you mess with the season of the witch, you often get the horns..

There are some who deeply believe that Halloween inspires the dark command, that the paranormal is real and the spirits of demons or the ghostly realm that exists briefly enters our own reality.

With that said, there are cautionary tales of danger and doom this season.. Two separate events over the weekend may be enough to propel those who already fear this time if year to become even more true to their beliefs..

1 is dead and 20 are injured as a Halloween hayride went berserk in Maine. A 17-year-old was killed when the hayride wagon at Gauntlet Haunted Night Ride overturned and slammed into a tree.. Brake failure is being blamed for the scene of real horror..

In Idaho,  a man was killed by a bus at a zombie attraction in a corn maze.. The bus was carrying paintball players. When the man was struck, some thought it was part of the attraction..

Be careful out there.
Avoid corn mazes.
And hay rides.
I always do.
Especially in October.





New Year's Eve.. Rockin' without Dick Clark in '13

Welcome to the final minutes of the year 2012. Yes. Already. It was so looked forward to, and it is ending so quickly...

It's minus Dick Clark this year, though. And that is notable. Fergie is showering ABC viewers tonight in the pre-game with Dick Clark related footage. Donna Summers is playing while the Doors are swaying. Yes, it's a stroll down amnesia lane in the fast lane. Dick Clarkless 2013. No countdown with the master of Times Square this year.

The show goes on, of course. With Ryan Seacrest to help. Before Seacrest will be 'out' there will be a number of events that occur. A massive ball will drop in Times Square. Revelers will kiss their hearts out.. then race for port-a-potties and their hotel rooms. Maybe stop by a pub and have a cup of cheer..

All around the world, the events are taking place. Some places on Earth are already 2013. The Pope will have a homily about how peace could be achieved. Fireworks will fly high into the night sky.. People will embrace …

Neve Campbell laments her post-SCREAM life: I was constantly being offered horror films, because I was known for horror films, or bad romantic comedies

Neve Campbell Confirms Her 'Scream' Notoriety Inspired Her Decision to Leave Hollywood »

“I needed a minute. In my 20s, it all hit so fast and so big that it was a little overwhelming,” Campbell shared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. “Wonderful, obviously, and I’m very grateful for it, but it got to a level, also, where the kinds of things that I was being offered were not the things I wanted to do. I was constantly being offered horror films, because I was known for horror films, or bad romantic comedies.”

And this week she will be jumping out of building with the Rock in theaters ..

All 'scream queens' have gone through a period of confusion, denial.. acceptance. And now for Jamie Lee Curtis 40 years after her introduction to movies via being chased by killer Michael Myers, she is back for a final round.. 
Just as Campbell came home for the final SCREAM..
