Horror, Fantasy, Sci-Fi: Spec-Fic Friday, Oct. 28th

This is, hands down, the best thing I've seen on the web this month:
The Thing: The Musical
Warning: Definitely not suitable for children, squeamish adults, small pets, or anyone who hasn't already seen The Thing. In other words, the musical includes graphic, gory clips (yay!)

Get with the program!
All Hallow's Read
I love the bookmark. I've printed out some to give away in books . . . and one for myself.

William Shatner's 10 Favorite Space Movies

I hate those stickers people put on the backs window of the SUVs and minivans, with all the little pig-tailed girls and even the $#@%! family dog and cat. But these I want!
FEARnet's Gift Guide: Zombie Family Decals

Books That Authors Recommend to Their Friends

Makes me want to drive to Illinois (which is saying a lot)!
The First Annual MALEFICIUM Dark Art Exhibition

Love the "Zombie Crossing" one.

I have to admit, I've been a little disappointed by Terra Nova so far. But I'm still watching, hoping it will improve as I start to bond with the characters a little more (and I'm really hoping they'll explore the world more). So far, the character I'm most interested in and intrigued by is the leader of the rebel "sixers" . . . and I'm not sure that's a good omen for the show. In fairness, I also got bored and wandered off from Falling Skies, and the character I found most engaging on that show was the leader of the rebel group. He also had the best line I'd heard in a series in a while: "Being the leader of a post-apocalyptic gang of outlaws has been exhausting." I think it's bad news for a show when the secondary characters and villains have better dialogue than the protags/heroes.
