Plot

Halloween is a 2018 American slasher film directed by David Gordon Green and written by Green, Jeff Fradley, and Danny McBride. It is the eleventh installment in the Halloween film series, and a direct sequel to the 1978 film of the same name, while effecting a retcon of all previous sequels.[4] The plot follows a post-traumatic Laurie Strode who prepares to face Michael Myers in a final showdown on Halloween night, forty years after she escaped his killing spree. Jamie Lee Curtis and Nick Castle reprise their respective roles as Strode and Myers, with stuntman James Jude Courtney also portraying Myers. The film also stars Judy Greer, Andi Matichak, Will Patton, and Virginia Gardner.


After failing to develop a new Halloween film in time, Dimension Films lost the production rights for a sequel, which reverted to Miramax, which then joined with Blumhouse Productions. In May 2017, a new installment was officially announced, with original co-creator John Carpenter's involvement as a composer, executive

A Predator ship crash-lands on Earth. Army Ranger sniper Quinn McKenna and his team are attacked by the Predator on a hostage retrieval mission. McKenna incapacitates the Predator and has its armor mailed off. At the behest of government agent Will Traeger, he is captured and held for examination. Traeger also takes the Predator to a lab for experimentation and observation, recruiting evolutionary biologist Casey Bracket to study it. The Predator awakes, breaks out of its bonds, kills lab workers, but spares Bracket before leaving.


McKenna is bussed off with a group of other government captives, including ex-Marine Gaylord "Nebraska" Williams, military veterans Coyle and Baxley, helicopter pilot Nettles, and Lynch, another ex-Marine. Seeing the Predator escape from the lab firsthand, they take over the bus. Taking Bracket with them, they head over to McKenna's estranged wife, Emily, where he expects to find the Predator armor he mailed off. However, McKenna's autistic son Rory has gone trick-or-treating while wearing this armor in hopes of avoiding detection from bullies.


DIY halloween Flex Bond Tombstones

This year I wanted to build some tombstones and start to replace our styrofoam ones. The styrofoam is good but they break, blow around (in high winds) and are a bit pricey compared to how long they last. So, I thought it'd be nice to build a few this year and so on over the next few years. In the meantime, we'll keep the styrofoam headstones around and blend in the new ones.


Sizing/Gluing

Since I'm a builder, my 1st thought was to make them out of OSB plywood and that's what I did. I used sheets of OSB from Home Depot, ripped them down to the sizes I wanted and then glued three of the same size together with liquid nails.


I glued and clamped these together but you can screw them if you need to. A screw in each corner and a few in the middle should work fine. You just want no shifting between materials as the Flew Bond is thin and it may crack. Although it is easily fixable, we don't want cracks. If you glued them, let them sit overnight, that's what I did.

The Mummy is a 2017 American action-adventure film directed by Alex Kurtzman and written by David Koepp, Christopher McQuarrie and Dylan Kussman, with a story by Kurtzman, Jon Spaihts and Jenny Lumet. It is a reboot of The Mummy franchise and the first installment in the Dark Universe film series. The film stars Tom Cruise, Annabelle Wallis, Sofia Boutella, Jake Johnson, Courtney B. Vance and Russell Crowe.


The Mummy premiered at the State Theatre in Sydney, Australia on May 22, 2017, and was theatrically released in the United States on June 9, 2017 in 2D, 3D and IMAX 3D. It received negative reviews from critics and has grossed $384 million worldwide, but was labeled a box office disappointment given its high production and advertising costs.


Welcome to my new "reviews" section of the site. I'll be doing album/cinema reviews. So, onto my first review.


I've recently watched "In the Deep" (aka 47 Meters Down). Before I review this, The history of this movie is strange as in how it's being brought to the surface. "In the Deep" went straight to DVD in the summer of 2016, August to be exact but it is being released in theaters in the summer of 2017. Studios are trying to capitalize on the success of "The Shallows" with "47 Meters Down". So, a studio bought the rights and changed the title for a theatrical release.


With all that said, let us review this thing.


Plot

"47 Meters Down" stars Mandy Moore and Claire Holt. The other actors are good but these two are the notables in the movie. So, two girls (Moore, Holt) are in Mexico on a trip. Holt travels the world, while Moore is a safe person. They are both talked into going on a cage dive in great white shark waters. Holt is all for this while Moore is reluctant but she agrees to go.


So, Mr. Wednesday 13 has a new record out... FINALLY. I can never have enough W13 in the playlist. I and the daughter love his music and we always go see him when he is in Colorado, which will be June 18 2017...


I've started this new website and reviews of both music and cinema is something I'm going to be doing. My first will be W13's new album "Condolences". It's been 3 years since his last effort "Monsters of the Universe" and it is a great follow up for him.


As always W13 grows from his last album to this one and this one is a little darker than the last, not lyric wise but music wise. We still get the kickass campy song "Cruel To You" but the rest are full of great music as well. I'm doing a review of each song and you can preview them below.


Copper Roofed Bird Houses

Not long ago me and the wife topped off the garden area with some bird houses. She likes having the birds around and hopefully with any luck we will get some birds.


So, I made three bird houses and mounted them on top of 4"x4" posts. Our garden area is basically hazelnut (off-white), so everything was pre-painted by us before doing this. The houses were easy to build. They just have a 1"x2" frame and then some old pickets (I picked up from a junk house in colorado springs), for the siding. I then topped them off with some copper I got from home depot. The copper does have a finish on it, so it won't patina for us but that's alright. Future houses will be raw copper I think.


There really isn't anything special here about them but birds can make them homes and they will be loaded with bird seed. Wel the two with platforms will be, the other one won't have bird seed.


Manzana Fence Rebuild

My mom, Evelyn, lives in Colorado Springs and at the turn of the year they had 75mph winds that caused all kinds of trouble for fence owners and anybody with a roof. I was unaware of what was happening because I live 2 hours north but she called me and said, "I need help". I asked what was going on and she said her fence blew over. She then told me about the winds and all the details.


She asked if we could fix it and I said sure we could. What we decided though was to see if the home owners insurance would fix it. As you've probably guessed they said no and a fence builder gave her an esitmate that was for part of the fence (just the parts that blew over). I can't remember exactly his quote but I knew we could do it for cheaper than that and do the whole thing, not just parts.


I went down and took some measurements and we got started. We actually with a good clean up of the area and by removing the old fence. While most of it was down, there were some posts to remove, etc. Next, we rented an auger and drilled some holes and set our posts in concret. Then the rails went up, followed by all the pickets. We also built two gates for easier yard access. Other than losing 4 days to weather, we had things wrapped up in less than 10 days.


DIY Skeleton Bone Tutorial #2

So, I had great luck with my other bone (for my 1st one). I thought I'd make another one. I decided to change the theme of it. Last time it was more or less a "been the woods, decomposing for awhile" bone. This time I thought I'd a "just been removed bone". Something that still has tendons/muscle attached.


My supply list has changed as my process has changed. When I was doing the last one, I was making a mental list on what I could use that would be better/easier to work with.


Before I used saran wrap for my texture layer. The problem is that it wasn't stretchy and didn't shirnk enough in the right places. So, this time I used furniture/packing shrink wrap. What I liked about it was that it stretched around my bone a lot better than the saran wrap. It also shrank better/faster.


DIY Skeleton Bone Tutorial

Hello, this is my Human Bone Tutorial.


Before I begin, I watched a few different tutorials online to get a basic idea of how to do this. I only needed a basic idea because this kind of thing is really driven by imagination.


Here is a list of the needed supplies:
01: PVC pipe (any length will do, I used a scrap piece that is about 15" long)
02: 90° PVC pipe (optional)
03: Saran Wrap (any brand)
04: Foil (any brand)
05: Paints (browns, yellows, reds etc)
06: Stain (browns, blacks)

Bed To Bench

I picked up an antique 1940's (according to the lady) bed frame. I saw it on-line advertised in an estate sale. What I liked is that it was cheap, I think I paid about $75 for it and great lines. The height was also an eye grabber for me. After seeing it in person I immediately thought about making it into a bench as I had never done a bed frame to bench conversion. The only issue with this is that the buyer may need a larger entryway, as this thing is pretty tall.


So, first things first, I'll strip this thing down and then sand it down. Since, I am probably painting it so I won't strip it all the way down to bare wood, although that'd be the best thing to do if re-staining it. After that, I'll cut the footboard in half and turn them 90°. That gives me the depth of the seat and the headboard gives me the width. I've got some old #2 red oak hardwood flooring left over from a job about a million years ago and I'll use that on the seat top. I won't paint that, but more than likely stain it, maybe ebony.


Long Mont Velo Build

Paul Andersen (my wife's cousin actually), is a pretty serious bike rider. What happens when you are serious about something? Well, at some point you open you're own shop/store.


Ultimately, this was the road that Paul and his wife Trudee would take in their lives together. That is where I come in. They asked me to do the build for their shop/store. I said yes without hesitation, of course. The build will include a fitting room, customer service counter area, storage shelves, workbenches, and whatever else Paul can think of. I will be doing the whole build for them which includes framing, drywall, texture, paint, work benches, custom floating bike shelves, and odd/ends.
