Transylmazeia

Adam's Blog

I'm posting this evening with a little sad news from the north. One of my favorite haunts of the past few years, Transylmazeia at the Marion Amazement Park in Marion WI, is closed. A check of the parks website says the park is closed and the business is for sale. They were a very unique haunt, using an actual wooden maze and transforming it into a corridor of haunts. While they did not use it as a maze during haunt season, occasional wrong turns were to be expected. This was the first haunt I ever attended that allowed touching, and it...

The Real World

Adam's Blog

As everyone knows, things online can differ greatly from the real world. For example on here I can say that I'm 6'5" 250 lbs, but in reality I'm 6'1" 270 lbs. Quite a difference huh? At the same time, in pretty rare instances people and things are the same in both worlds. Why do I bring this up? On Sturday I had the opportunity for the first time to meet the people behind this site, Jenny and Andy.  Right away I realized they are exactly like they are on here. I don't want to steal the points that Andy made in...

Extraordinary Review Crew

Andy's Web Log

Last night I got to meet a few of the review crew members and it turns out they are as extraordinary in real life as they are online.I don't know much about most of the Review Crew members other than what can be gleaned from the applications and reviews they write but if pud27, majorXpsycho, dirkadirka, and those I've met in the past are any indication, than Wisconsin is one lucky state to have such talented and passionate individuals.We spend countless hours pouring over every application and weighing different factors when selecting the review crew members.  It's hard because we...

Bath & Body Works Halloween collection

Halloween Hodgepodge

I'll admit it. I don't go to the mall very often. I was never really into the whole mall thing. Maybe it's cause I'd end up buying everything I wanted and would be in massive credit card debt (or because everything is too pricey for my cheap taste).Well anyway, I got an email from Bath & Body Works which announced their new Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin scent. YUM! (I gotta get me some of that!). Well there was also a link to their new Halloween shop. I never thought Bath & Body Works would have Halloween items! So now of course, that...

ABC's 13 Nights of Halloween

Johnny a.k.a. "Big Daddy"

Hey all of you Halloween "freaks!" I, just like Jenny, was doing some Halloween TV snooping, and found that ABC will be hosting the annual 13 Nights of Halloween! One word - AWESOME! I love everything about Halloween, especially the TV shows! I really enjoy emersing myself in the Halloween spirit and nothing beats watching Halloween themed shows on a cold and dreary October eve - hot cocoa and carving pumpkins, with a good Halloween show on in the background - what's better than that?Oh yea, back to ABC Family - for those of you with HD - the channel is...

AMC Monsterfest is now Fearfest

Halloween Hodgepodge

I love watching the many horror movies on AMC as well as TCM (see other post), so after I saw the TCM schedule I checked out the AMC site for their Monsterfest schedule. Their general TV listing schedule doesn't go to far into October yet, so I did a search. I came across news that they changed the name from MONSTERFEST to FEARFEST and shortened the number of days it's on. Fearfest will run from Friday, October 24 through Halloween night. Personally, I prefer the Monsterfest name and more days of horror movies. Why change it?Anyways, here's the schedule I...

Fixed RC Application

Andy's Web Log

The review crew application had an annoying limitation of 200 characters for any response (and you got an unhelpful "500 Server Error" if you went over that limit).  This is the same bug we had last year that got a temporary fix then.  Now I put the fix back in place and made it permanent this time.The application should be able to handle as much as you wish to type now.  Sorry for the inconvenience.
