But we stopped accepting Faxes in 2005

When nostalgia meets the present

The family took a voyage to the movie theater today.. the HORROR REPORT family didn't see anything filled with fright--no IT FOLLOWS for me, it's not in a theater nearby.. Instead it was SPONGEBOB.. A sponge out of water. Funny parts, good laughs--though the 'out of water' business only took up the last 20 minutes or so of the movie, which was a disappointment. The real story here is that Ayden Morris, now 4, was at his first movie theater experience.

This was a big day for me--huge as a matter of fact.. It's not the movie choice that mattered, but just that he wanted to attend a theater showing. And he loved it.. he was stunned a bit at how loud certain parts were, he cringed during the return to JURASSIC PARK trailer, and he heartily laughed at the humor of Spongebob. So did I, and my wife..

There was one more proud pappa moment for me, too.. After the film, we perused a much emptier mall than it ever was before. My local shopping sensation of yesteryear is suffering through the same downtown as many other brick and mortar shopping plazas.. But there's a thrift shop--a place where old antiques and relics of yesterday are still bought and paid for by collectors and modern internet people. My son came across a bulk batch of HE-MAN action figures. He knew them since he plays with the few older broken ones I still possess. After today, we are adding three new (old) HE-MAN characters to the family, including HORDAK, who hasn't been in my presence since 1990.

A full circle kind of day.. Beginning with drenching rain, dour as could be. But the light of family brightening the mood.. a modern movie in a cool theater with my 4-year-old eating up every moment.. and then a dad, at the age of 34, buying toys that I bought at the age of 4 in the same mall that I bought them in 20 years ago. So different in ways, but so similar in others.

Full circle.
Another moment of parenting..

The fleeting moments of today are gone tomorrow.. So forgive me for writing about it. But it's my way of making amazing little things last just a little bit longer than the short span of time they inhabit..

Cool blend of horror movie characters with HE-MAN action figures

Horror movie fans who once played with HE-MAN toys in their childhood may have the perfect gift ready to be purchased: Horror icons in the shape and style of MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE toys..

The toy line was unveiled by FUNKO at a toy fair.. it is called the SAVAGE WORLD HORROR LINEUP.



Reaction has been mixed.. But why? ... the nostalgia of the 80s coupled with hugely instrumental horror movie characters--all born during the same time period by the way ..

Even the packaging is similar to the containers that contained the HE-MAN toys of the 80s generation.

A long-awaited state grand jury report into sexual abuse in six Pennsylvania dioceses, including Pittsburgh and Greensburg, has finally been released. “Today, the most comprehensive report on child sexual abuse within the church ever produced in our country was released,” Attorney General Josh Shapiro said. “Pennsylvanians can finally learn the extent of sexual abuse in these dioceses. For the first time, we can all begin to understand the systematic cover up by church leaders that followed. The abuse scarred every diocese. The cover up was sophisticated. The church protected the institution at all costs.”
