Today is they day we’ve been waiting for. Halloween: The Complete Collection - the deluxe, limited-edition Blu-ray box set - is out now, thanks to the heroes at Anchor Bay and Scream Factory.
The set collects all ten movies in the storied Halloween franchise along with a host of supplementary material spread across 15 discs. If you somehow aren’t already sold on the set, we have 7 reasons you should buy it.
This has been out for a week and I still don’t have it. Soon.
Yesterday I worked with a guy whose favorite band is Aiden. He has a William Control tattoo and thinks Glenn’s last name is Danzing. He is excited about Jerry Only’s band coming to Denver soon, but thinks Doyle is the Only original member in the current Misfits line-up. He was wearing a Motionless in White hoodie.
His faux spook game was strong.
I’m listening to “Beautiful” by Kylie Minogue and Enrique Iglesias right now, so who am I to judge?
Singing “Give It All” with Tim at Riot Fest on Sunday. Taken from Ultra 5280.
Wish I could get a band started out here.
Got to see Glassjaw, Descendents (playing all of Milo, which was thought to be for Chicago only, plus lots of other songs), The Cure (2 1/2 fucking hours), Bouncing Souls (who are very popular around here, apparently. Announced they are playing here the 30th and 31st of December during their set, so it looks like I will actually celebrate a new year after all), Touche Amore, Dropkick Murphys, and Rise Against.
I actually thought about leaving before Rise Against started because it started to rain pretty badly in that hour of waiting by the barricade. “They’re probably just gonna play all their singles” is how I was rationalizing it. I hadn’t seen them in five years, and never listened to much after Appeal to Reason, so I thought I wouldn’t really be too bummed about missing them. When I was ready to go, there were only about 15 minutes left til they hit the stage, so I figured we might as well just stay at that point, and I am glad we did. I got to end “Give It All” with Tim - who was really into my “Love Is a Many Splendored Thing” shirt, according to Caitlin - so that was cool. I actually knew the majority of their set list, and they even played a pre-SSFTCC song, which I was not expecting in a festival setting. I got to see Rise Against a lot between 2006 and 2009, those were some of the best shows I ever went to, and I don’t know why exactly I stopped being so into them, but Sunday night made a big fan of me again.
Raf was here for four days and I blew like $300 in those four days.
