Happy Friday the 13th!
Every time a Friday the 13th rolls around, I have a bit of a tradition; due to some nifty things now available, I can improve upon it!
I am a huge fan of a sense of occasion, and I love certain traditions. Every Friday the 13th, I have a Friday the 13th horror movie marathon consisting of, big shock, the Friday the 13th movies. I don’t often make it through all of them, but I always put on the first (it’s on in the background as I write this!), then hop around to whichever ones happen to strike my fancy.
Since Friday the 13th the game released this year, I am also going to pop in and play at least a couple of matches for giggles. I haven’t played it in months so I’m not sure what the queue times might be, but I’d be willing to boot it up to find out. If the wait times to get into a match are excessively long, I may opt out.
But the big fun for today just so happens to be a rarity for me: I’m going to see a horror movie releasing today!
I don’t often go to the theatre to see movies (the last time was to see the Blair Witch reboot in September of last year!). Where we live, more often than not, the people in the theatre are terribly rude: cell phones on, talking, etc. Most of the time I will wait to see pretty much any film once it comes out on Blu-ray, but certain new horror movies I just can’t wait to see. Today is one of those rare times.
The movie is called Happy Death Day and I’m a fan of the writer/director: Christopher Landon (yes, Michael Landon’s son!). He wrote and directed Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones (my favorite in the series by far), as well as wrote the script for Disturbia and most of the other Paranormal Activity films.
I have had an amusing track record with the last few horror films I’ve been too impatient to wait for and wound up seeing in the theatre. They have all been…not so great. This wouldn’t be an issue if I was going solo, but my partner always joins me even though he’s not particularly fond of horror movies. I’m hoping Happy Death Day breaks the trend of stinkers. I feel confident it very well might.
And I hope we wind up with courteous theatre-mates.
Other than that, I hope to do a little more Halloween decorating today to make things as atmospheric as possible for the weekend. I have to admit, I am excited!
This weekend, the plan is to play all kinds of games and not just Destiny 2. I think I can do it!
With that I ask: what will you be playing over the weekend? Will you be doing anything for Friday the 13th?
No matter your plans, please be safe out there. And if you see a black cat, for god’s sake, pet it!
Spooky cheers, friends!
