Welcome to Horrorwood: The Silver Scream 2

Ice Nine Kills Welcome to the bar, pull up a stool and get ready to rock out!!! Since this is my favorite month out of the year, I’m hitting the reviews hard with everything spooky. I will get to the rest of the blog, sports, whiskey, and other books and movie reviews eventually.  This album came out October 15th and I have been waiting for this release a long time. Here is the great thing about Ice Nine Kills. Not only are they a kick ass metal band, but they have taken the horror genre to a whole new level. Their music is clever and the perfect complement to the classic horror movies fans love. I fell in metal love with these guys with their last album the Silver Scream.

As Spencer says in “Hip to Be Scared” When the Silver Scream came out I think they really came into their own commercially and artistically.” No one could have said it better than the lead singer.  Some of my favorite songs before this album where Ameri

My Heart is a Chainsaw by Stephen Graham Jones

My Heart is a Chainsaw Welcome to the bar, pull up a stool and I'll pour you a drink. Bear with me as I learn how to fully update my blog to what I want moving forward. It is great to be back if only for the fact that I'm happy to be writing in some capacity again.

I really did love this book and I will flat out tell you know this is without a doubt 5 stars. However, I am so afraid if I say anything about this book it will ruin the joy you will get reading this book. So lets see how this works out. So first and most important, our

I’m back and things are going to look a little different!!!

Hello to all the people who still follow me and are not bots. It has been a long long time since I posted and so many things have changed.  *My kids have gotten so big and are entering new phases in school.  *My wife and I are coming up on our 16 year anniversary. *We bought our first house and got out of the apartment before the pandemic hit. *Oh yeah, the world split due to a deadly virus. (I’m not getting into that discussion). *Thanks to Twitter and a show on the Shudder network called “The Last Drive-In with Joe Bob Briggs” I met some of the most amazing and talented people ever who share my same warped love of horror. *Most importantly, the St. Louis Blues won the Stanley Cup for the first time in franchise history, and I was at Enterprise Center watching it on the big screen with a packed house of screaming fans.  I was originally thinking about putting all the different things my life has become and why my blog is changing, but that is going to be way to long for one post. So l
