I have posted about Vincent Price before.  It is at this time of the year that Mr. Price’s incredible body of work seems to have its greatest impact.  That being said, I want to point out my favorite Vincent Price Characters and the movies in which he plays them.  Enjoy! […]

SCENE I. A cavern. In the middle, a boiling cauldron.  Sound of thunder,  Enter the three Witches. ALL Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn, and cauldron bubble.      Those of you that are fascinated with the darker side of life will no doubt like me be very interested […]

Double, Double, Boil and Bubble


Fall Geekery is upon us.  I have not had much of a penchant for blogging lately but in October the winds change and the temperature drops and my geek blood runs hot with Halloween fever.  I typically try to fill the month of October with all manner of odd and […]

Carving a pumpkin, wearing a costume, and collecting tasty candy are really the only things a child dreams about during the month of October. One of my absolute fondest memories of Halloween growing up was picking out my costume.   I was lucky enough to have been of trick or […]

October is without question my absolute FAVORITE time of the year.  I have studied all manner of folklore and custom in my quest to better understand my atheism.  None fascinate me more than the true story of witches.  You will find my blog filled with posts like this. HERE Traditionally […]
