Winter’s Eve

Damn it, not again! Oh well, thank goodness bird poop is white...

Nox Arcana Official Site Winter’s Eve, Monolith Graphics 2009 Winter can be a time of both wonder and woe. While the falling of snow delights many, other look upon it with dread.

There’s a version of “Carol of the Bells” floating around out there that, thanks to the tone and speed of the children’s chorus singing, always unnerves me a bit every time I hear it.

Nosferatu – Blue Öyster Cult

Not too long ago, a friend made me aware of the fact that Blue Öyster Cult did a song called “Nosferatu” by linking to this video: Given the massive use of their songs “Don’t Fear the Reaper” and “Godzilla” in countless broadcasts and CD compilations every October, I’m amazed that “Nosferatu” isn’t a Halloween standard. …

It’s News to Me!

While browsing through Comcast’s OnDemand service, I discovered that the “Preferred Collection” menu (found in both the “Free Movies” and “Premium Channels” sections) contains free movies that aren’t listed in any of the other movie categories.
