What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Friends With Braiiiiins

4 Comments

monsterYears ago, I got to work with my dear friend Joe Sena on his 3-day/24-hour internet extravaganza, “100 Years of Monster Movies.” The 72-hour horror film marathon was scheduled to coincide with the Horrorhound convention from which were streamed live movie introductions by Elvira and other well-known horror hosts, culminating in a live interview with the zombie godfather himself, George Romero!

Although the event was wildly popular, as were Joe’s subsequent monster movie events, it still took a few years and a lot of effort on Joe’s part to find the right way to share his horror obsession. He tried a lot of things, and we even talked about teaming up to be horror hosts ourselves. (I was going to be Ghoulia Childs until I found out the name was already taken by a horror-inspired baker, damnit.) I gave up, but Joe persevered. Happily, my friend finally hit the sweet spot with his own horror movie channel! It’s called The Monster Channel, and it can be watched 24/7 on ROKU and the internet.

“Throughout the day, we present classic and not-so-classic horror movies, forgotten television shows, short films, bizarro civil defense and safety films, movie trailers, music videos, promotions for upcoming movies/TV and other media of interest to fans of horror and associated genres.” -The Monster Channel FAQs

I am a big horror fan, especially the old, goofy stuff, so this channel is going to be on a LOT in my house! The schedule is full of things I can’t wait to see (or see again). For example, how cute is this?

Go check it out!

P.S. If you’re into zombies, and really who isn’t, Joe and his partner, my grade school friend Paul, make a “Create Your Own Zombie” action figure kit you’re going to love!

I have committed to spending part of every day looking for at least one beautiful thing, and sharing what I find with you lovelies!
