AKA Mr. B Natural

Celebrate Halloween with TWO new offerings from Homsetar Runner. First up is a weird podcast/playthrough of the Videlectrix classic video game Haunted House:

And then we get to see some Hween shenanigans from the whole gang, but more importantly we get to see what everyone’s Hween costumes are:

Happy Hween!

Tacoma or Olympia? YOU DECIDE!

Tomorrow (Saturday, October 22nd 2016), Fools Play Improv is performing NOT ONE, but TWO shows!

First you can see Fools Play at the Olympia’s South Sound Estuarium at 8:00 PM. Then you can see Fools Play at the Tacoma Little Theatre at 10:30 PM:

Fishy fishy fishy fishy boom boom boom

Fishy fishy fishy fishy boom boom boom

It should be noted that the South Sound Estuarium and Tacoma Little Theatre are about a 30-minute drive apart (in good traffic), so it is actually possible to go see BOTH shows. I, however, will only be performing in Tacoma.

It should also be noted that this isn’t the first time Fools Play Improv has performed at the Tacoma Little Theatre. NO! Fools Play had a memorable run there a couple of decades ago as well:

“Of the Month” October 2016

TV Show of the Month:
gfallz
Gravity Falls

What a perfect show for Halloween, filled with scary supernatural elements like zombies, dark magics, monsters, and gnomes! It’s also a really frikkin excellent show, one that very carefully and slowly builds its mythology and world, all without sacrificing the immediate humor of the moment. Top-notch actors like Linda Cardellini, Kristen Schaal, Jennifer Coolidge, Will Forte, Nick Offerman, Nathan Fillion, Alfred Molina, Louis C.K., Mark Hamill, John Oliver, Patton Oswalt, and even Neil deGrasse Tyson have lent their voices to the characters. It also built towards a planned ending and then actually ended! It’s only two seasons. You can watch it on Hulu. Do so. For Halloween.

Album of the Month:
cbf8bit
The Crazy Boy Floyds: 8-Bit Halloween

A great little collection of catchy songs about a Werewolf/Skeleton combination, the Grim Reaper, a generic Monster, and an Urban Legend. Go listen to them. Do so. For Halloween.

Video Game of the Month:
foreawa
Transformers: Earth Wars

What does this game have to do with Halloween? Umm… giant robots? Whatever, I’ve been playing this game very consistently for over a month, so it’s p-much a lock to be included in my “of the month” choices this time. It’s a resource/building/battling game, where you collect resources to build a base from which you launch sorties against opposing players’ bases. If you like that kind of thing, this is a very casual version (I usually just pick it up for a couple of minutes at a time a few times a day). Plus it’s nice to send some old faves like Ironhide and Bumblebee into combat on your behalf. If you do start playing, join my Alliance: “Seattleites”
