Speaking of Family Values. . . . ; Something Else to Start the New Year

This is just something I ran across the other afternoon and, no, the Girl three posts below is a little too old to be on this video from COLLEGEHUMOR.COM, brought to us here courtesy of  poet Wendy Rathbone and sf/horror writer Don Webb via Facebook.  But many other moppets from famous horror movies are resident here, at Happy Dreams Daycare. . . .


Wednesday Addams, absent

One disclaimer, though, neither Wednesday nor Pugsley Addams are present, possibly because they started in cartoons and on TV, and anyway for the most part they were home schooled.  But still, for a nostalgic, happy few moments, a representative assortment of terror tots we all may remember can be visited here.

Then to add something else to start the new year, World Horror Convention will be in Atlanta Georgia this May, and one thing I learned looking for ways to get to Detroit cheaply last June, an awful lot of flights leaving where I am go first to Atlanta.  So, while neither on any special committees nor in the running for any awards, it still looks like it might be fairly easy to get there and, last week, I went ahead and joined up.  Then yesterday I found actual flights that — unusually — seem to be at convenient times both going and returning as well as a cheap place to hole up in mere blocks from where the convention will be.

So . . . maybe I’ll see you there?


  1. Hope to see you there in Atlanta! I loved the little video, thanks for sharing. It made me want to lurch.

  2. Atlanta at least seems to be a hub city for many airlines. (In the video I especially liked the tendency of places the woman has previously worked at to burn down.)
