Tony Schumacher Tony Schumacher's blog:
I'm not the sort of guy who scares easy (unless a spider runs across the floor, then you'll find me on the ceiling.) Sure, I might jump in my seat an inch or two during a horror film, but I don't ever remember having to hide behind the couch, or even for that matter peek through my fingers.

I'll be heading out to the dark and desperate streets of Missoula tonight to do some trick-or-treating with my son Paul.

He's 3, so this will be his first year going out. He's got a ninja costume and is pretty happy.

Java Davis Java Davis's blog:

The gas tank is topped off and the oil was changed yeste... Read more of this blog post »

How many times have you read a book with an intriguing and imaginative premise and compelling characters, a book that had you completely absorbed, only to be disappointed by the unsatisfying last few pages? The story doesn't really end, it just sort of stops. You can almost see the author leaning... Read more of this blog post »

1. RINGU: the original RING. Accept no substitutes.

2. A TALE OF TWO SISTERS. Korean horror at its best; strange; poetic; chilling, and with a fabulous twist in the tail. Don’t eat crisps; you’ll inhale them and choke.
