The Horror Movie BBQ 2015 Christmas Fallout!

CHRISTMAS FALLOUT!

Last year I attempted to do a "Christmas Fallout" post where I posted my loot. It's something I've always enjoyed reading on other blogs and I figured "eh, what the heck!" and posted my own. It's a fun and pretty easy entry to do.

Problem is, I really wanted to enjoy Christmas, but between the crappy warm weather and my back acting up and I've been out of commission for most of the season. No caroling, no snow angels, no visiting houses with absurd amounts of Christmas tree lights down the street. Just laid up in bed every weekend all month. But Christmas day? Time slows down for that. There's time to relax.. So, as stressful and tiring as the rest of the month was, yesterday went very well. Christmas cookies, ham, a viewing of Inside Out, and plenty of laughs is what I wanted more than anything and that's what I got. And as great as everything you see below, that's the most important gift to me.

So with that said, I&#…

Celebrating Fright Flicks Trading Cards!

Image
I hate to sound like that guy, but man oh man, I really miss trading cards. The mystery of what could be received. Trading them with my friends on the playground or in the neighborhood. The stickers that would end up on my dresser or the side of the tv and in the process, pissing off my brother because his tv now had a Growing Pains sticker.

Whoops.

Point is, they were a nice novelty when we were kids and even now. I'll pick up a pair of old WWF Superstars of Garbage Pail Kids cards in hopes that I score something cool. There's a lot of great packs of the past pop culture properties ranging from tv shows to bands to cartoons to comics and even Troll dolls. Everything had a trading card set dedicated to it. Including horror movies...

Fright Flicks was an awesome set given to us by the trading card gods at Topps. This set focused on the hottest horror movies of the time. Freddy, Pumpkinhead, Ghostbusters, Poltergeist, House, Fright Night are only some of the titles that this awe…

Happy 50th Charlie Brown!

Good grief!
For a crudely drawn kid who just wanted to enjoy his Christmas with his friends and family, Charlie Brown sure stuck around and stood the test of time well. Think of it. What other Christmas specials have been aired every year since their original broadcast? Garfield? Nope. Pacman? Nope. He-Man and She-Ra? Nope. Other than the Rankin Bass specials, you can't really name many. But when people discuss Christmas specials, you'd be very hard pressed to find someone who doesn't mention A Charlie Brown Christmas first.

And why not? It's as charming as ever! Sure, the kids are still mean to Charlie Brown, but hey, kids are cruel to begin with. Charlie, as stubborn as he is doesn't give up in his nonstop venture to share his love of the holiday with everyone, even to the point of finding the worst tree in the Christmas tree lot. Finally, with a little assistance from his best friend Linus, he and all his friends finally come together and share the warmth of the…

FIVE YEARS?!?!?!

5 years, huh? Yikes!

Well, I guess it's ok to celebrate. Some blogs don't really last past maybe a year or two. Facebook pages too. So I don't know if I'm truly motivated to become the best blogger I can be or I'm just stubborn.

I originally started this blog, originally called "Big Chad's Creature Feature", because I had a couple friends who were (and still are) successful horror bloggers, as well as my love of sites like Wrestlecrap, IMockery and X-Entertainment(now DinosaurDracula). I always loved to write, was never an expert at it but whatever, I loved to write. So after hanging around a few friends and hearing them talk about how much they loved it and how it was getting their foot in the door of a few places, I decided to give it a try.

And I failed at first.

Or did I? I struggled at first, which is what you're supposed to do. I didn't get more than maybe one entry done every few months, but by the encouragement of a few friends, my gir…
