First, let me apologize for the site being bonkward for the past few days. During a site update the database was misplaced and we had to go hunt for it. Was a odd journey, but everything is now up and running.
Remember folks, Twitter can be your friend at the oddest of times. This time it saved my but and the site as well.
Hope you all continue to enjoy the site. Even though I have not posted much of late, I do maintain all of the site and create all the graphics and make most of the screen shots that you have enjoyed over the years.
This will fe a Samhain to remember, Halloween for all those that are not history buffs.
When we last left the Addams house, Gomez (Raul Julia) and long lost brother Fester (Christopher Lloyd) had been reunited, and the dark, lovely Morticia (Anjelica Huston) announced that she was going to have a baby. Several months have passed, and now there is to be a new addition to the kooky clan, Pubert Addams (played by twins Kaitlyn and Kristen Hooper). Now, Thing (Christopher Hart), Lurch (Carel Struycken), and Granny (Carol Kane) are doing their best with a little tyke underfoot, and the kids, Wednesday (Christina Ricci), and Pugsley (Jimmy Workman) are coming up with all kinds of creative ways to get rid of the little brat. This is far too much for Morticia to handle on her own, so Gomez does well by his “Cara Mia”, and attempts to hire a nanny to watch over all three kids.

Musings has done quite a few movie and game reviews on theme this Samhain season. There are vampires, and werewolves, and even a Monster House, but we’ve not yet run into witches, and those of whom this holiday is all about, in their celebration of Nature and The Goddess, and the true reason for Samhain (pronounced sow’en). With this we come to a great 1998 film about a family of witches that became both cursed and blessed, and how the curse was broken after three hundred years.

Since this is the month of Samhain, it seems just appropriate to open Musings October with a modern classic that has hit not only the big screen, but the small screen, and originated from newspaper’s comics section. So, come on back to the early 90s, the days of grunge and MC Hammer, and check out The Addams Family. this film features all our favourite Addams characters, Gomez (Raul Julia), Morticia (Angelica Huston), Wednesday (Christina Ricci), Pugsley (Jimmy Workman), Granny (Judith Malina), Lurch (Carel Struycken), Uncle Fester (Christopher Lloyd) and Thing (Christopher Hart). Thing is completely out of his box now, and as usual, it the true ruler of the Addams roost. Read more...(740 words, 239 images, estimated 2:58 mins reading time)
Moonbat—We really don’t need another word for someone with bats in their belfry who bay at the moon but this one still has a nice ring about it. This also works great for describing the current stable of Republican candidates running for President and the media outlets that support them.
Did you know there is a swarm of moonbats zipping around the United States? They could be hanging out at your local movie theater going batty over the latest Twilight phenomenon, but the moonbats that have been getting the most attention are currently roosting above the right-wingnut guana they have created in the states of New Hampshire and Iowa. Everyday, the media moonbats reflect on every word spoken by them and even the words spoken by their more sane opponents. Even though Samhain is over, and Yuletide shopping has created temporary moonbats in many of the discount stores across the nation, this species only comes from their roost once a year, then they become normal people again. Will we be invaded by even more moonbats in the coming months until this time next year? Most likely, and don’t expect them to stay contained to the Midwest and New England. It’s open season on the moonbats, and we must do everything we can to make sure they stay out of Washington next year. Not even the Mayan Doomsday prophecies can stop the destruction the moonbats can cause. Read more...(260 words, 1 image, estimated 1:02 mins reading time)
