    Frankenstein Friday celebrates the creator of Frankenstein and the first actor to play Frankenstein. Frankenstein obviously holds no terror nor scare factor nowadays, but that's only because the legendary monster was overplayed and parodied far too often; sort of like every ****ing meme on the internets. So yeah, today's a cool holiday for all you horror fans out there. Oh, and here's a fun fact for ya; did you know Shelley didn't create Frankenstein on imagination alone? At least some of her inspiration comes from the true story of a scientist who was a pioneer of electricity. He would shock corpses of animals, limbs, and eventually whole cadavers and cause their nervous systems to react and thus, "reanimate" the dead, stunning on-looking crowds. Alessandro Volta believed he'd one day be able to permanently bring someone back to life with electricity, but as you know, this never happened; or at least, it happened only in a book.
    A little error people make (even the movie makers) is that Frankenstien is the Dr/bloke that made the monster.

    ****, called me out Prinny. Won't deny I'm ignorant in all things horror ('cept ol' Freddy).

    :P Chocolate Day!

    Don't forget Salk did it for the people not for profit or fame. Dirty socialist

    I enjoyed that last bit but that statement at the end is now used a lot by the t-baggers as tho somehow the Obama regime is just like the Nazis. Irony...

    You do know about the Arab Spring and the recent rebel victory in Libya right? I know not many pay attention but Id call that pretty notable.

    October 29th



    Today, we've got a large seven holidays and two anniversaries.


    Hermit Day
    Oatmeal Day
    Visit a Cemetery Day
    World Psoriasis Day
    National Cat Day
    National Forgiveness Day
    Republic Day (Turkey)
    Internet's Anniversary
    1929 Stock Market Crash's Anniversary


    Hermit Day is the day for everyone to be, indeed, a hermit. Whether you're internet obsessed, anti social, or like things quiet and peaceful, leave those doors closed and do whatever you like to do when at home all day; fitting for a Saturday. I'm the latter of those categories in loving the peace and quiet, so if life allowed, I sure as shit would hermit myself in my house for five days out of seven a week. One of the greatest things in life, is not living it at all.


    Oatmeal Day is the day to eat oatmeal... Yeah. In all honesty I've hated everything oatmeal except for cookies for many a year, so I think I'll pass on this day. But feel free to indulge yourselves.


    Visit a Cemetery Day is yet another self explanatory day today; too bad it conflicts with Hermit Day. Today is a day of many purposes; to enjoy the grim but beautiful fall scenery in a cemetery, to pay respects to those six feet under, or to visit one at night and rejoice as Halloween approaches. I'll personally be dropping Hermit Day (I do it often enough as is ) for this, since there is someone for me to pay respects to.


    World Psoriasis Day is a day of awareness for Psoriasis, a sort of skin condition that has various types and issues associated. The main issue caused by it is decreased quality of life and such; severe itching, for the youngin's still in school bullying, and the condition itself can inflict problems similar to what other chronic diseases like diabetes or depression can cause; in fact, it can lead to depression to compound already existing issues. Psoriasis isn't something that will kill you, but it's certainly not a worthless awareness day.


    National Cat Day is about those adorable fur balls we all (should) love. I could be wrong, but America may very well be the cat country with somewhere around 35% of all households owning a cat, making it the most owned pet. So yeah, all you dog owners can piss off until Mutt Day comes 'round. ;D Celebrate the widely-beloved feline however you see fit; except for standing idly by while you watch someone dress their cat up... The poor things. ;_;


    National Forgiveness Day is stupid. If you're willing to forgive someone because a day randomly says so rather than of your own volition and kindness, stop being a dick every other day of the year and be forgiving and merciful whenever possible. GTFO out award, this day receives.


    Turkey's Republic Day celebrates the day Turkey officially became a republic in 1923. Three years prior Turkey was pretty much a republic, but '23 was when things went officially recognized and they then proceeded to have presidential elections.


    Nerds and Wiichaters alike, rejoice! The Internet's 42nd Anniversary is apon us! =D Way back in '69, two universities in California had two computers exchange data for the very first time. From then, the rest is history... But for those who don't know, I'll enlighten ya. Way back when the internet was first created, it wasn't the internet we know and love today at all. It was nothing more than a means of sending data between computers, usage allowed for only the elite; governments and colleges/universities. There was no google or search engines storing massive amounts of data, no websites, and sure as shit no streaming. I was a means of computers to communicate with each other, nothing more. It took plenty of research, money, and evolutions in computer technology before we got what we have now. And just a decade and a half ago, we didn't even have Google. Just Yahoo and such... Ugh. From a way to transfer information to an infinite depository for information, we've come a long way. Holiday pick of the day, no question. ♪


    The 1929 Stock Market Crash's Anniversary certainly isn't something to celebrate, but something to be aware of. You think today's economy is shit, right? Perhaps you've heard we've never had unemployment and poverty so horrid since 1929, right? Yeah. The Great Depression sparked by "Black Thursday" had much worse conditions than even now. Unemployment skyrocketed to 25% and still higher everywhere, some of the poorest countries reaching 33%. Times none the tougher in modern economics, indeed. Life these days is tough, but back then a life and a home were both absurdly hard to keep in your grasp.


    So, whose celebrating Hermit Day by celebrating the Internet's Anniversary? They go hand in hand, after all. And if not, are ya celebrating Visit a Cemetary Day instead?

    Absolutely, that's what spurred me to make that little tidbit about "evil" actually. However, notable in which light, is the question. We all know the history books love to twist things more than a taffy puller. And there's been some news as of late of nasty doings from the rebels, which some people have labeled as being signs of a "one dictator to the next" movement. I'm just sayin' that the book ain't closed on Libya just yet, who knows if things might somehow take a turn for the bad.

    Its hard to promote a film with a monster with no name.

    Look on the box of every film with it in
    It has "Frankenstien" on the box
