On My Mind: November 3, 2014

Halloween candy, specifically how much I have or have not eaten this year. My average is way down, but I haven’t had breakfast yet.

Last week my family and I went to see the 1922 German silent film, Nosferatu, at The Elsinore Theater, an amazing historic theater and local gem.

Though the gothic theater was a perfect setting for this film and the live organ playing was fabulous, I couldn’t stop thinking of this:


When I was a kid, my family would occasionally go to seeĀ dollar movies at The Elsinore. I was fascinated by the building, mostly because the gothic construction led me to believe it had once been a church. However, the giant mural of witches made me think it had been a church to Satan.


Shakespeare, not Satan, Heidi.

I was only mildly bothered by this, since it was no longer being used for dark purposes (other than showing some terrible movies).

I just sent out my November newsletter, which is always fun for me to write. If you haven’t subscribed, there’s a link right over there in my blog’s right sidebar. ——>

I’ll be giving away a signed copy of Hook’s Revenge to a subscriber at the end of the month.

Now I’m thinking about pie. I might need to go make some breakfast…

Someone found this blog after googling “greatest thing on internet.” I’m flattered, but must decline that honor, as it clearly belongs to this:

What’s on your mind?

  1. NO! Flutterby Fairy is the SADDEST thing on the internet. Dude, that should totally come with a trigger warning. Talk about childhood memories dredged from the deep. Ok, that never happened to me but the possibility was always there plus there’s that scene in Beastmaster where the ferret gets thrown into the fire and that used to make me cry until I was sick and then the whole family made fun of me for days.
    This is why firescreens are important, people.

    Also, I love Nosferatu. The entire movie can be found on YouTube. In case you didn’t know but wanted to see it again.


Let's chat, shall we?
