Yay! October is here, one of my two favorite months, with April being the other. This is the time that you start crunching on leaves with every step, the air gets cool, folks start getting spunky, and Halloween festivities unfold. This is when you start breaking out the arsenal of Tim Burton classics, as well as old Bela Lugosi films. And let’s not forget the godfather of visual storytelling, Alfred Hitchcock. As a Netflix subscriber, some of my best deliveries thus far were the collection of short stories from the television series Alfred Hitchcock Presents. Of course, don’t forget to read some Edgar Allan Poe by candlelight. Whatever you do, and no matter how much stress you’re under from the country’s unclear future, just don’t forget to take it easy and let your freak flag fly all month long!
