Do you ever stare at the multitude of options on Netflix? Do you scroll through and look at all the little synposes and thumbnails trying to decide if it's worthwhile, but ultimately accomplishing nothing? Well, I've been there more than a few times. Luckily, I am related to a film buff, with a particular expertise… Continue reading Megan’s Horror Movie Marathon! (Curated by Bill Freeman)
The inspiration for this post all started from the movie I watched this weekend. A fairly weak "thriller" film, The Phantom in the Theatre, was something I picked on Netflix because many Asian thriller/horror films are awesome.

Last week, I was helping my mom out after she had knee surgery, and at one point, the little peanut lady asked me to go upstairs into my brother Bill's old closet, aka the room he used to live in that looks way nicer now (sorry, Bill), to grab some toilet paper rolls to restock… Continue reading Vintage Toy Treasures!

For all of you true crime fiends, armchair detectives, Wikipedia mongers, and amateur researches, I wanted to start a series presenting a "Crime of the Century" that you maybe haven't heard of.
