Mr. Fright’s Scary Stuff – The blog has evolved!

July 12, 2013

Okay, to all my followers please hear this. Long story short, I put WordPress on my actual website and so my blog is now over there. The address: http://www.mrfrights.com/.
So if you’re still interested in all things Frights, you should head over there and jump into the spooky bog with me.

The Long Story:

A while back I had a laptop crash event and lost pretty much everything from my website including the sacred template that allowed me to simultaneously update the entire site at one time. Having lost this template I am unable to access my website and make any changes or updates at all.

The solution was brought to me by a friend who said that HTML is passe and I should install WordPress on my site so it’s easier to control and update at will. I’m already familiar with it and there are a lot more cool things you can do in this form of WP. I was like ‘okay, I’ll give it a shot’. So I did and I found an insanely cool template for my WP site, changed some stuff around, migrated a few things (which I’m still working on), and then voila!

Now I have my website all updated and stuff, looks kinda modern, but still super cool! I am constantly adding new material and features and would LOVE to have you guys over for a visit.

So, I hope you find your way to the new spot at Mr. Frights’ Scary Stuff: The Big Blog of Doom and Things on my actual home website. www.MRFRIGHTS.com/

Thanks!

The Flags of Mr. Frights – Call To Action redux

August 24, 2012

 

Mr. Frights

When we made the last video for Mr. Frights (A Call To Action) where we encourage people to follow along, we made a bunch of flags before settling on the right one. Below is the video, and then I thought I’d share what the flag in the background could have looked like. Which one is your favorite?

REVIEW: How To Tell the Difference Between a Zombie and The Cable Repair Guy

August 16, 2012

Mr. Frights

Every year about this time I begin to search for family Halloween or horror books. They don’t always jump out at you, so I want to bring as many as I can to your attention. This time I’m reviewing a new book that you can get for your Kindle (though you definitely don’t need a kindle to read it. You can download a free kindle app for your computer or your smart phone) and it’s perfect for your little ones as well as fun for adults. I laughed pretty hard while going over this one.

 

Author Jennifer Ritter has put together an amusing “how to” with fun stick figure style illustrations. The drawings are done by the author and in a very tongue-in-cheek kind of way, poking fun at her own art skills along the way. But it’s also very appropriate for the story too.

 

We have here a short [or kid sized] book explaining just what the title says – How To Tell The Difference Between a Zombie and The Cable Repair Guy. This is a creative look at something we often take for granted in our lives and the idea that we should be observant of the things around us. I may be putting meaning into this that the author didn’t intend, but it’s totally there.

Cover for “How To Tell The Difference Between a Zombie and The Cable Repair Guy” by author & illustrator Jennifer Ritter

The comparisons of a zombie and a cable repair guy are pretty funny and the way that this just keeps finding more differences to help you discern between the two creatures is incredibly humorous, so don’t be afraid to chuckle out loud like I did, even if you’re by yourself. The humor starts from the very title page of the book and even in the copyright statement.

 

I really enjoyed this book a lot more than I thought I would. The surprise and delight I ended up experiencing while reading this, for me, makes this an instant must have. I shared it with my daughter and she LOVED it! Jennifer put a truly fun and funny book together and at just $3 bucks you really can’t beat it. The bottom line is that this should be a hit with parents and kids alike, especially if you are a fan of horror, Halloween, or humor.

 

To find out more about the author please see her page on Amazon.com – [Jennifer’s Author Page]

 

To get your hands on the book please check out this [link]

 

And if you’d really like to get to know the author I highly suggest checking out the interview I did with her here: http://mrfrights.com/j_ritter.html

 
 

It would be a smart thing for you to get this book, especially if you have kids and need to teach them to tell the difference between a zombie and the cable repair guy. After all, better to be prepared and not need it than to need it and not be prepared.

 
 

Enjoy the horror my friends!

Frightful Friday

August 10, 2012

So, what is Frightful Friday? It’s where I, Mr. Frights, takes a list of my new Twitter followers and get their URLs, their links to the websites listed on their descriptions, and then post them for you to check out. Why do I do this? Because it’s good to promote these fine folks and their wonderful websites so they can build their followers up and so YOU get access to some great entertainment and people (that you could potentially build your network with). DUH!

Here’s this weeks’ list. Enjoy!

Getting geared up for Halloween 2

July 31, 2012

Mr. Frights

So I have been itching in the worst way for Halloween stuff to start coming in at the stores. I got a pretty good look at some great Halloween stickers that came int0 Target (my secret identity’s job) & I was pretty excited! I hit up Dollar Tree today, just a little bit ago in fact, and came across a plethora of Halloween stuff they had just put out in the last few days (as I was there last Friday and they hadn’t put it out yet), so I thought I’d share some crappy photos with you off of my iPod Touch.

A little kiosk stand with an assortment of Halloween miniatures, dishes, snow globes, and such all over it.

I have a few of these from last year, including the weird looking trick or treater in black with the yellow eyes (next to the ghost all in white), but I wasn’t sure if I had the witch so I picked one up.

Their singular end-cap full of Halloween goodies, some new, some from last year.

I grabbed a couple of the new silhouettes, one each of the bats, rats, and spiders… Oh my! Also picked up one of the door way wire sparkly web hanging things and a door knocker for my daughter’s (Little Frights’) room. She picked it out.

Had to get this… You’re Next! HA!

So go now… run to your local Dollar Tree if you haven’t already and start your picking!!

Enjoy the… Halloween, my friends!

– Mr. Frights
