31 Horror Movies in 31 Days

Keeping this short and sweet.


October's coming up soon, people! Who's up for the challenge?
It doesn't matter if your favorite downtown eatery
burns to the ground
or if your chestplate cracks,
you must watch at least one scary movie per day.

One horror flick--EVERY DAY--no exceptions.

The Frequent Posting ball has once again been dropped. But I have a really good excuse this time, not like "but I'm writing my theeeeesis" or "I'm getting maaaaaaarried". I haven't been updating He Shot Cyrus but I have been writing--a webseries pilot!

Scarytown went into production on Saturday with a talented group of actors and crew members. We secured a Red to shoot with (the same camera used on District 9, The Informant, The Lovely Bones, and Che) and from what I've heard, it looks amazing. I wasn't able to travel down to L.A. for the shoot but I spent the time fleshing out the outlines for the next eleven episodes. Our director, Layne, and producer, Aaron, are getting ready to shop it around to different movie companies/agents/other contacts they've made down there.

My next job is to finish the series outline and the next few scripts. During that time, I'll try my hardest to post more often here. Also, keep an eye on Natsukashi. I just completed a podcast with Glenn Shaddix (Otho from Beetlejuice) and have a few more coming up in the next few weeks. Thanks for checking in with He Shot Cyrus and being patient with me as I try to keep up.

Top 5 Music Videos Seen For the First Time TODAY

Today I tracked down links to my favorite music videos for an upcoming weekly feature I'm mulling over. While surfing around, I came across some amazing videos that I'd never seen before. I don't want to give much away but the Bowie video is mind-blowingly rad and the Sigur Ros might be one of my favorite videos of all time. Make sure you stick with it and watch the events unfold. The Pulp video couldn't be enabled so you'll have to click the link but it's definitely worth the trip. Let me know what you think.

David Bowie and Bing Crosby - Little Drummer Boy

Kid606 - Sometimes

Daft Punk - Da Funk

Sigur Ros - Vidrar Vel Til Loftarasa

Pulp - Bad Cover Version
Here's a Wikipedia article on this video if you're having trouble putting names with the faces:
