We are in the month of October and here in the U.S. it's almost time to celebrate Halloween. Like most holidays that we have created, it involves copious amount of drinking and showering each other with gifts. In this case it's candy, and no, the holiday is not just for kids. Last year I insisted on not purchasing any candy for the brats on my street, so in protest I ate an entire bag of Reeses cups in one sitting. I also followed that up with a pumpkin beer in celebration of not having to answer the door.
Now some of you may think I don't have the holiday spirit, similar to the way Scrooge was so Bah-humbug about Christmas. Well that isn't necessarily true. I appreciate the holiday for what it is - a time to watch mostly horrible scary movies and dress up like an idiot. Or you could do my usual lazy route and dress up like a "martial artist" and stare at the half naked ladies at the bar. Anyway, regardless how you "celebrate" the upcoming holiday it is definitely a great time of year to stay in and rent a movie. For example one of my all time favorites was on the other night - "Leprechaun: In the Hood." For those of you who haven't indulged in this fine piece of classical artistic expression here is the basic synopsis provided by Wikipedia.
Wannabe Los Angeles rap artists Postmaster P. (Anthony Montgomery), Stray Bullet (Rashaan Nall) and Butch (Red Grant) accidentally free a Leprechaun that was imprisoned by record producer Mac Daddy O'Nassas (Ice-T) twenty years earlier. The film follows the three as they attempt to evade the powerful Leprechaun and violent Mack Daddy, both of whom seek a magical flute with mind-altering capabilities, possessed by the young trio.
If your mind has yet to explode from reading that plot, congratulations.
So get ready to queue up your Netflix and get ready for some great scary movies or you can make your own at the gym all by using this nifty move called the ghost. The technique is so awesome you might not even see it coming. (That's what Postmaster P. said.)
Oh, and Leprechauns are real just look at this.
