And if I were a DJ, October would be ROCKtober! Yeeaaaaagh!
What I mean to say, is that October will set upon those of us in EST in about 5 hours. Because this is the first Halloween month for Final Girl, and because I tried to think of something rad to do but couldn't come up with anything on my own, I'll be joining Des over at Without Me You're Only You in the massive goal of watching a movie-a-day for the entire month. This idea came to me in a flash, a flash I tells ya, when I was reading about Rick Geerling's attempts to do the very same thing last year, over at Dark, But Shining.
I figure this town IS big enough for all of us, right?
I've been stocking up on cheap VHS movies and strategically shuffling my Netflix queue for days and days, and I think I've got a pretty good lineup of movies ahead. They're not necessarily my favorites- in fact, there's quite a few I've never seen before, or haven't seen in ages, so that's got me psyched. I've also got a couple of marathons planned to mix things up a little. I'll be doing a Friday the 13th marathon-all 11 of 'em in a day- after which you can check out Steven's musings on the series over at Corpse Eaters. There's also a Halloween marathon planned- all 9 of 'em. Am I crazy? Could be. But I'm doin' it all for you, Final Girl!
So who knows what state I'll be in when October is over- perhaps I'll never want to watch another movie again. Perhaps, after the marathons, my ass will fuse with my couch. Maybe my eyes will shrivel up and fall out, or perhaps I'll end my days sitting in a corner, knees to chin, rocking and muttering to myself about germs. We'll have to wait and see. Yay!
Lock your doors...bolt your windows...pull up your pants...it's time for----
