The 75th Anniversary of War of the Worlds

75 years later, the first 40 minutes of this is still terrifying. If you’ve never ever turned the lights out and listened to this, it’s the perfect day to do it.

This broadcast did, after all, change broadcast laws forever and literally scare people to death. It was intended to. They knew that 8 minutes after the hour the more popular program on at that time would break for commercial, so that’s when they landed the martians. Hysteria ensued.

When they told 20-year-old Orson Welles that during the broadcast he replied: “So it’s working. They’re supposed to be scared.”

Halloween Mix 2011 & HOMEMADE ZOMBIE MOVIE!


Hello Friends and Internets. Here is this year’s Halloween mix. It’s a long one, and should be perfect for your Halloween evening activities. This year I have a couple of extra treats for you too. The first is a Halloween “story” or experiance of sorts. It was done by Gregg Turkington (better known as Neil Hamburger). It is his comedic take on relaxation cassettes and it is truly hilarious and terrifying. The link is below.

The other is a little ZOMBIE MOVIE that me and some friends made for the 24 hour film contest. Bear in mind that the entire thing was shot, written, edited, and scored in 24 hours. It’s not exactly Brunel but it’s fun enough to spend 5 minutes on. I hope everyone likes the music and other goodies. Have a great Halloween…

Have fun.
