HAPPY HALLOWEEN FROM DAILY MARAUDER
Remember this cinematic classic? The Ring (and yes the American version) still goes down as one of my favorite Halloween films of all time. That’s why I was more than pleased to turn myself into Samara from the scariest portion of the film: the ending in which she climbs through the television.
Considering that I’ve been working in television for 4 years, there’s nothing scarier than a small child with really horrible hair extensions climbing through my tube. Girl, let me help you fix that weave! Now, I too can be Samara in yet another way to waste time on the internet. Yay!
Go grab your creepiest pic of you and head over to Seenow.com for some Halloween fun. And remember, don’t do what I do on Halloween and insist on eating every last candy corn pumpkin in the bag.

LEVEL 26: SCARY NOVEL TO SCARY DIGI-NOVEL
Being a fan of serial killer dramas like Epitafios and Itchi the Killer, I’m always on the hunt for something new to scare the crap out of me especially around Halloween. Level 26 was written by Anthony E. Zuiker from CSI fame. The book is about a serial killer who fancies a plastic white suit and apparently takes more yoga than I do.
Apart from the story itself, the special sauce is in the interaction of traditional read meets online video interaction. Every 20 pages or so, the reader is directed online to watch a 3 minute piece of content meant to bridge from one portion of the story to the next. Not having the book in hand, I can’t comment on the effectiveness but I can say that the concept is pretty intriguing. Just announced today, an iPhone app has been released which marries the text and video together. Most found the process of entering the codes to access the associated video tedious so this alleviates a bit of that frustration.

ONLINE VIDEO OF THE WEEK: HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
The best thing about Halloween isn’t the children dressed up in costume. It’s the pets. In this video, two most adorable pets are dressed as Princess Lea and Darth Vader. The really amazing part though. . .the dogs look mildly sedated. . .they don’t move for the entire minute of film. Daddy mentions that he really loves them while mommy forced them into these costumes.
I love Halloween. Candy, costumes, and re-worked logos, oh my! Check out YouTube and Google’s new scary logos.
