Turn your baseball caps sideways to pass as either a rap singer or a New Kid on the Block, because here in the UK it's officially All Hallows Eve and therefore time to watch Hocus Pocus!

That online store had better ship to the UK.

Now excuse me while I go a) try and convince the EI LJ comm that this link isn't spam and then b) scream in excitement for the next couple of hours.

Hey guys,

So, Halloween falls on a Saturday this year, and it's the same date we're due to watch the Hole in the Head gang.

Like a lot of people, watching Hocus Pocus is part of my annual Halloween ritual, and at this stage I basicqlly think of it as an extension of EI.

With that in mind, I was wondering if you'd like to do a comm rewatch of it? I'll be putting up the rewatch post at one minute past midnight (UK time) on October 31st on my LJ, but if it's something that you'd be interested in as part of the EI rewatch, I'll post it up here instead?

(just tried posting this on the EI comm and got the moderator queue message, fuck you LJ)

I already have like, a stupid amount of t-shirts, but this is awesome!

It's only available for the next 24 hours so get moving if you want one.

Fic ideas

Sunday night we had this incredibly gross muggy heat that basically made sleep impossible, and Monday morning I felt so much like headachey, nauseated ass that even a shower couldn't make me human again and I ended up calling in sick to work.

Long story short, I spent most of the day napping on the sofa, writing Eerie ficlets, and drinking hot chocolate while Hocus Pocus and Trick 'r Treat played in the background.

And now I want a story where Danielle and Laurie from Trick 'r Treat are Mister Chaney's nieces, and he's all about tradition so he's super disapproving of the fact that they (and also I reckon their mum, who is Mr. C's free-wheeling big sister and the first one in the fam to break with tradition) have joined Lupa, an all-female werewolf pack, and IDK, maybe Danielle and Laurie are road-tripping with Janet and Marie around Halloween, and they end up in Eerie, and also I think secretly there are unicorns in Eerie and unicorns and werewolves are enemies, and then they fight or something. IDK. Basically I want fic about Laurie and Danielle, is what I am saying.

Also, you know how EI:the Other Dimension had Stanley and... someone else, and they were essentially that reality's version of Simon and Mars? I think Max, Dannie and Binx were the Mars, Simon and Dash of yet another reality, the one Hocus Pocus is set in. Like, these three, or versions of them, exist again and again throughout the multiverse, and they're a floodgate to keep the tides of weirdness at bay.

So, those are some thoughts that I have. Basically, I want more stories, all the stories, forever.

Okay, it's not strictly Eerie-related, but it's Hocus Pocus and that means Omri Katz,so close enough for jazz, yeah?

Get over to Unamee.com - they have a Sanderson Sisters t-shirt on sale for the next day and a bit. You know you want it.

Regarding the fate of Thackery Binx in Hocus Pocus:

I'm just sayin', if I was a witch who planned to live forever by devouring the life force of children, and I had just eaten some dude's sister, and I was about to turn said dude into some kind of immortal creature so that he would suffer his grief and loss for an eternity, I for sure wouldn't turn him into an animal that is.notorious for being sneaky, super-hard to catch, and which routinely fucks with human beings and then creates celebratory internet memes to commemorate the act.

I'd have turned him into a newt. It's a classic, and also, try getting revenge on me when your stubby little amphibian limbs can't even help you get out of a well, motherfucker.

Honestly, transforming him into a cat makes me wonder if there's an alternate universe out there where Winnifred changed him into a huge dog, and was promptly and very briefly suprised when German sheppard!Binx immediately bit off her face, like, "Thanks for the meat-rending canine jaws, bitch! Hope you like your comeuppance instantaneous!"

But then I guess there wouldn't have been a movie, and what would I have to watch every Halloween?

I AM ALIVE! If you imagined me saying that in the voice of Sarah from Hocus Pocus, you are exactly right, except I am not wearing quite such a cleavage-enhancing outfit at this moment.

Long story short, back in January, I apparently made God super angry with me and as a result he punished me by giving me a new cuntface of a manager and a hideous Bernard Manning/Sloth/Cave Troll hybrid agent in the same week, and then my laptop broke a little bit but I was already really tense and impatient so I Hulksmashed it into a wall and then it was somewhat more than a little bit broken and by then I had become addicted to freebase crack in order to deal with Cuntrag and Bernard so all my spare money went on that rather than getting a new laptop BUT! Now I have a new manager and a team of mostly-humans and so I have cleaned myself up and YAY INTARNETS!

By the way, some of that last paragraph was totally a lie, but unfortunately the bit about a coworker who resembles the lovechild of Bernard Manning, Sloth and the Cave Troll from the first Lord of the Rings movie is factually accurate. I didn't actually become a junkie, but only because I don't know where to get drugs from.

ANYWAY! Oh my God dudes, I just watched the last season of Heroes and it almost half-way did not suck. I estimate that I was not actively annoyed for at least 60% of the time. Also, Sylar would be fine if he just concentrated on being bitchy instead of trying and failing to be a badass killer dude. Adam Monroe completely needs to be some kind of crime-fightin' lawyer guy with an insane hatred of Quantum Leap. I would totally watch that. Maybe he can joined Major Lorne in the world of "Bones crossovers that are not real but totally should be". I think an Adam Monroe/Hodgins snark-off would make the world a million times better.

Hmm, what else... oh, the Vampire Diaries is pretty lame. Stern Hot History Teacher (formerly known as The Guy From Tigerland That Isn't Colin Farrell) is hot and stern, and Damon is fun in a super low-budget version of Angelus kind of way. Everyone else is retarded though.

I have not seen the Lost Boys 3 yet - I bet it is beautiful though. Nobody tell me different, okay? Also, Colin Farrell is going to be a vampire in a Fright Night remake next year and his enemy is going to be Jailbait Checkov from the new Star Trek movie - that does not seem like a fair fight to me. It's like pitting Micheal Jackson against Darth Vader.

That's pretty much it - as you can all see, I didn't go away and develop any kind of life while I was interwebsless. In fact, I pretty much just watched more TV and movies and thought about what kind of TV and movies I would like to see in the future. In case you were wondering, they still mostly involve Daddy Winchester, Colin Farrell, or werewolves. Or some combination thereof.

Oh, except also now I want a show in which Shatner and Tori Spelling fight crime in space, and The Dave is the main villian. Every episode will either end with Shatner waving his fists in the air and yelling "THE DAAAAAAAVEEEEE!" or a close-up shot of The Dave's evilly shifting eyes with an ominous music track playing in the background. I haven't put any werewolves or Daddy Winchesters in there yet. I don't think Daddy Winchester and The Dave would approve of each other. I just feel it in my soul.

Wah! I was trying to watch Eerie, Indiana today and my DVDs are totally wrecked and skippy. I'm so gutted! So then I tried to get over it by watching Hocus pocus, but it was not the same at all.

Anyway, now I'm watching the latest episodes of True Blood and oh my God, how much does Steve Newlin want to bone Jason? And Jason's all, yes, this is what God's love feels like, and I'm like, dude, no, that is what having your balls cupped by a religious insaniac feels like, and also, run away! Poor Jason. I love him. And he wears a clip-on, aww! So stylin'!

Also, Eric! "Do I have blood in my hair?" for the win! And SPOILER FOR THE START OF SEASON TWO ) yay! And Admiral Cain is in it, and she's totally awesome and terrifying and makes everyone crazy, and Sam is almost not-hatable. Yay!

On a completely seperate note, I think I have accidently turned my bunnies into junkies. See, Kagame keeps jumping out of her pen at night and running around knocking shit over and making a ton of noise, so lately I've started steeping a little valerian root in hot water and putting it in their drinking bottle in an attempt to get her to chill the fuck out. And they are definately more sedate, which is what I was going for, but now they drink like a litre and a half a day and they go really crazy everytime I fit a fresh bottle, like totally wrestling each other to get to it.

I should probably feel bad, but whatever, at least now I can sleep through the night and not have two stone of rabbit pile-drive me awake around 3am.

So there's a new starter at work today, and I was training her and chatting to her in that tentative getting-to-know-you-enough-to-decide-if-you're-worth-knowing-better way that I do with people I just met that I may have to spend a lot of time with, and the conversation turned to cute animals of our aquaintance and she was telling me about her six month old rescue kitten and I'm like, awwsocute, because I love kittens, and she's like, "Yes, he was so weak and tiny when we first got him but now Binx is such a handsome cat..." and I was like, "Binx... as in Hocus Pocus?" and she was like, "Oh yes" and I was like OMG YOU ARE MY HERO! Although now I want to watch EI and I can't because Kirsten has borrowed my DVDs and that makes me sad, but her cat is called Binx and that is so totally awesome!

Now, it's off for bunny snuggles and gay 80's cop shows for me, so goodnight all.

Having chosen to combating my current state of ickiness with a delicious stirfry laden with ginger and garlic, a hot bath with olbus oil, a mug of hot chocolate with chili and Stargate, everything was going well until Sam started ranting about "Signs" and the whole thing about superadvanced aliens who are allergic to water not realising that the Earth's surface is more than two-thirds water, and Daniel just makes this face and I laugh so hard my drink comes out of my nose.

Chili powder + nostrils? Not a good combination.

In other news, God bless fic_on_demand, the Holy Grail for smaller fandoms. It's not slash, but it is Eerie, Indiana. Am also highly amused that Jason Marsden was the voice for Binx in Hocus Pocus, but didn't actually play him in human form. I would have loved to see that play out in EI:

Marshall: I remember you... didn;t you used to be a cat?
Dash: What? No! *worried expression* Did I?
Marshall: Yeah, you had this whole thing about virgins and candles...
Dash: *shifty eyes*

I think, all things considered, things could have been a lot worse. I mean, imagine if Dash had wound up in the Stargate: Atlantis-verse; let Pointy get hold of him and the poor kid would be saddled with a name like Joe or Fred or Benji.

Not that Binx is much better, mind you.
