Haven't posted in like two weeks!

I've been insanely busy with Spooky Walk and other things,
but it's all coming to an end and I'm actually glad.
Spooky Walk was kinda disappointing this year.
Our stuff wasn't as great because it rained and we're outside, so some of it got a little messed up.
And the houses weren't that great this year, and they have no excuse because the weather doesn't affect them haha.
I'm really hoping that everyone takes advantage of the fact that next year is the 20th year and they do a really great job.
If we spend more time this coming year to make it better, we can use the same stuff for the next few years before it needs to be fixed up again!

Well anyway, back to other news.
I saw SAW IV this past Friday at midnight. It was the very first showing.
It was so exciting to be there for the first one. :D
I'd have to say that at first I was so confused by the big twist that I was disappointed. But now that I totally understand it I think it's very good and the writing was really clever in how they got us to not realize what was going on.
Only one of the twists I still think is kinda lame, but it's much better now that I know everything about it. ;]
ALSO Halloween is on Wednesday and I'm excited! :D
But I'm also getting excited for the winter, so it's almost overpowering Halloween!
The Fall was lame this year, I'll admit it.
I called it ahead of time that it was gonna be lame so I'm not surprised.
Next year, however, should be great.
I'll try to make it great.
Mostly it's the Spooky Walk that needs alot of help haha.
If my plan for building our exhibit works,
I won't be busy at all every weekend of October like I was this past year! :D
That'll be a HUGE difference than every other year.
It'll be sick.

I'm pumpeddddddd! :D

That's it for now!

The Spooky Walk opens tomorrow night!

I'm not excited now, but I'm sure I will be once people start coming through just because it's fun to scare people. :D
I'm not enjoying it very much this year for a few reasons, and one reason is because it's the 19th year.
No one else seems to understand my logic lmao.
The 19th year is 5th, 10th, 15th, 20th, etc are cool.
Anything in between is just...whatever.
Therefore NEXT YEAR will be the best year yet.
I'm gonna try to convince Mrs. Weiss to go all out and do a radio commercial and revamp the whole thing.
New signs, new website, etc.
And hopefully we'll get a house! :D

Well I'm already looking forward to next year because the only reason I'll enjoy this year is because scaring people is hilarious. :P

One great thing if we get a house next year is that it'll be MUCH easier to work on.
The woods is so unorganized, no matter how hard we try to keep it organized every year.
Wires are just running everywhere and it's a mess.
You wouldn't know it's a mess unless you worked on it though, so whatever.
A house would be ten times easier and more fun to work on.
I'm crossing my fingers that we'll get the empty part of T-Building.
If we don't get that then I think I'd actually prefer the woods.

I can't wait for Halloween itself!
I want to be done with the Spooky Walk and get to the good stuff; Halloween, seeing the school show with Kat :]]], working on short films, and stuff like that.

That's about it for now.
I'm still obsessed with Streets Of Rage, in case you can't tell from my LastFM widget on the right. ;]

Spooky Walk opens this Friday!

I'm getting pumped as hell for the Spooky Walk to open this Friday.
It's not gonna be the best year but it's still fun to scare the shit out of people! :D
Unfortunately I have to get up early the next day for the PSAT.
Oh well, no big deal haha.

ANd I'm currently obsessed with Streets Of Rage.

That's about it.
Lata hatazzzzz!

Bayville Scream Park

Alright so we went to Bayville Scream Park last night and I have to admit, I was surprised by the fact that it was a little better than last year. They still need to hire MORE actors, but at least they did have more than last year (I could have probably counted last year's staff on my fingers). They just need some more actors and it would be great.
Bloodworth Manor and Uncle Needle's Funhouse of Fear are the only things worth going in. The Temple of Terror is annoying as hell (like last year) and the Pirates were okay. Actually I guess the pirates were worth going to as well. But either way, the two houses in the big warehouse were worth it.
The sets really are amazing, so are the animatronics and stuff like that. Only other problem I have is that they should put on a roof because right now you look up and see the roof of the warehouse another 30 feet up. Oh well, it's only a small problem.

So in conclusion it was alot of fun. With more actors and a roof, Bayville Scream Park would be MUCH better. I'd suggest it to people now but I'd tell them to only go to the first two houses and MAYBE the Pirates.

Darkside Haunted House

We went to Darkside last night!
As usual, we were the first group of the season (three years in a row) and we got to go in again for free!
We also spoke with the guy who runs it for a little while and it was fun.
This was their 10th year anniversary and I think it was the best year yet.
Although it was mostly the same as it usually is, there were some things fixed up and there were some new effects.
The ONE problem I have with Darkside is that it doesn't compare to Spooky Walk at all.
Darkside is about 10 minutes TOPS, while Spooky Walk lasts about an hour.
Also the price is less at Spooky Walk than at Darkside, so you really get your money's worth.
However Darkside is alot of fun and they do an amazing job with their effects and actors.
Everyone on LI has to go check it out at some point this Halloween season!

And I love this :]]]

I finally got my new camera today!
It's the Sony HDR-SR5 and it's amazing!

It records in 1080i HD with 5.1 Dobly Digital Surround Sound, it records onto a 40gb hard drive or a memory card, AND it has real night vision (which I've used many times already since I got it)!
Click here to read more about it on Sony's website!
It's basically the exact perfect camera I was looking for. :D

I'll have lots of new videos on YouTube using it, so check them out when they're up!
