During the evenings are best to interact with me personally. Normally, I spend all night and morning creating these blogs. You may even catch me at night, while blogging at the same time. It's really a matter of TIMING. Enjoy!

How's it going my gumdrops? Did you enjoy your Halloween? Hopefully your Halloween went much better than mine. Unfortunately, I did NOT have the opportunity to enjoy the holiday.
Instead of celebrating Halloween, I did chores as usual. However, I honestly did not expect to have such a brutal sinus headache.
Throughout the day and night of Halloween, it felt as if someone was crushing my skull on both sides. This was because I did not take my Zyrtec and because of the dampness in the air.
Whenever it rains or snows or is about to do so, my sinuses start bothering me. Eating and drinking hot and spicy foods and beverages are my normal rituals for sinuses. This includes sleeping with the heating pad on my head and face.
In order for the heat from it to loosen the tension in both my face and head, I normally rotate where to apply the heating pad. Also, gargling with Cool Mint Listerine helps.
Cool Mint Listerine helps to open my nasal passage because the alcohol is so strong. This last time, nothing I did helped nurse my sinuses. I even lost my appetite after eating 1/2 my Turkey Sandwich.
After eating only 1/2 my Turkey Sandwich for a late afternoon lunch, I started feeling nauseated. I thought making a sandwich would curb my hunger, until dinner. I ended up not eating dinner.
Between the sinus headache and nausea, I refrained from heating frozen shrimp for dinner and chewed on Dentyne Ice Gum. Mint gum typically settles my stomach. It failed last Tuesday.
An hour after I finished watching Fresh Off The Boat, I raced to our bathroom and puked turquoise. Yes, you read that correctly. Turquoise. Turquoise is only 1 of my favorite colors.
Why was the vomit turquoise?
I gargled with Cool Mint Listerine and was chewing Dentyne Ice Gum. That was round 1.
Then, my youngest aunt boiled some water for me to make Hot Lemonade. While watching MTV Classic 3 hours later, I took my thyroid pill. Literally a few minutes after taking the pill, I ran to our bathroom again for rounds 2, 3, and 4. I had not barfed that much, since 13 years ago!
In April 2004, I was still in college and had a torturous oral extraction done on a wisdom tooth. My oral surgeon prescribed me Oxycodone. Oxycodone is 5 times stronger than Hydro.
Regardless, I cannot take any oral medication with codeine in it. To paint you a pretty little picture, imagine a college student vomiting from alcohol poisoning. THAT'S how sick I was from taking Oxycodone in 2004.
Even though I haven't taken any oral medications with codeine in them for more than a decade, I puked like I did, last Tuesday night. My throat, diaphragm, waist, lungs, and arms were sore on the inside, after all 4 rounds of upchucking.
In fact, I was sore all week. It hurt to laugh at anything because vomiting from such a brutal sinus headache took a huge toll on me physically. Compared to last week, I am feeling much better.
Meanwhile, I am having a difficulty deciding what to do with my content. You may have noticed, that I changed the scenery for the next 26 days. At the same time, Webs' service has been terrible this year, including these last 4 months.
You cannot help noticing that the main page is still displaying blogs, that I published weeks ago when I have published many other blogs within the past week or so. Many customers are furious with Webs and their tech support.
Lately, I have been contemplating if I should relocate all these blogs from Webs to Blogger. If you have been subscribed to me within the last year or so, you already know that Blogger is my alternate site, whenever Webs has server issues.
Hypothetically speaking, if I ever converted my Blogger page into being my new website, I would have to import ALL 500+ blogs and other content to Blogger.
Do you have any idea how much more time it would take for me to relocate everything to Blogger?
Granted, I would probably generate MORE traffic on Blogger. Although, the transfer would be extremely tedious and time consuming. I would probably lose some of the content, that I slaved away on for countless hours, throughout these last 4 grueling years.
If it is not necessary, I really don't want to relocate everything. Therefore, I will try doing a little more experimenting with Blogger before coming to a final decision. In the meantime...

How's it going my gumdrops? Today is that special day. HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!! Do you have any special plans for the official holiday? Other than publishing today's blog, the only real plans I will probably have are the usual chores, maybe re-watching Charlie Brown (if it comes back on ABC tonight), and sleeping in.
Yesterday, I watched Tokyo Ghoul: PINTO in Japanese. PINTO is the 2nd prequel and OVA for Tokyo Ghoul. I would've shared the trailer today, but I had no luck finding it in English or Japanese.
Much like Tokyo Ghoul: Jack, PINTO is a prequel with characters, which have major significance to the protagonist, Ken Kaneki. Tokyo Ghoul: PINTO is mostly a prequel about Shuu Tsukiyama as a teenager.
In the OVA, viewers have the chance to watch Tsukiyama as an affluent and ruthless ghoul in high school, while a human classmate tags along and snaps pictures of him.
Aside from watching Tokyo Ghoul's 2nd OVA, I watched the historical biography, Edgar Allan Poe: Buried Alive on PBS, last night. After watching Edgar Allan Poe: Buried Alive last night, my feelings about Poe have somewhat changed.
Last week, I updated and archived blogs from 2016. Today I archived blogs from THIS October. In case you missed any blogs from the last few weeks, click on the following links:
If you click on every link, you will surely have plenty to read, watch, and listen to which is always a positive for those visiting.
You may recall that it was difficult for me to choose between sharing Siouxsie And The Banshees And The Misfits for Song Saturday, last week. Since I shared Siouxsie last Saturday, and considering that today IS Halloween, it would not hurt to share Glenn Danzig's Horror-Punk band, The Misfits for today.
With that being said, I will leave you with The Misfits' "Halloween I" and "Halloween II."
The Misfits "Halloween I"/"Halloween II" (1981)

How's it going my gumdrops? We now have only 2 more days until Halloween. Have you been enjoying your Halloween Weekend? Mine hasn't been the most exciting, I will say that much.
Because Adult Swim's Toonami chose to repeat the same Samurai Jack Marathon last night, that aired for Memorial Day Weekend, I dismissed it. The people, who run the network and the block, schedule the most idiotic programming.
Considering that this was supposed to have been a Halloween Weekend, it would've been more logical to have a Stardust Crusaders or Tokyo Ghoul Marathon than to re-air the Samurai Jack Marathon for a more infantile crowd.
On October 19th, which was 2 Thursdays ago, I watched Tokyo Ghoul: Jack.
Tokyo Ghoul: Jack Trailer (2015)
Both OVA's are prequels except Jack is a prequel about Kisho Arima and Taishi Fura. 12 years ago in OVA 1, both were high school classmates. Arima was an undercover Ghoul Hunter, who worked for The Doves. Fura, on the other hand, was a juvenile delinquent in high school.
Taishi Fura quit the baseball team to play hooky with his mischievous friends. That was until a ghoul wearing a Jack-O' Lantern as a mask, killed 1 of Fura's friends and took his other friend's right eye. She became partially blind after being attacked.
To avenge his friends, Taishi worked with Kisho to hunt down the ghoul, Lantern. You may be wondering why the ghoul is called "Lantern."
Obviously, this ghoul wears a Jack-O Lantern as a disguise, even though her eyes glow red like all the other ghouls. This OVA definitely has some twists at the end. All those Toonami fans, that love nit picking the Tokyo Ghoul franchise should really take time to read the character summaries.
Reading the summaries for Tokyo Ghoul's characters gives a much better clarification than the actual Anime. When you read and listen to the summaries, they give you a better understanding of Tokyo Ghoul's premise.
What does Tokyo Ghoul: Jack have anything to do with the protagonist, Ken Kaneki?
While reading and listening to the character summaries about Kisho Arima, I learned that he was a hailed genius character within the CCG at 16 years old. In Tokyo Ghoul: Jack, you will have the chance to see the mysterious character known as ARIMA work as a Ghoul Hunter with the CCG from his youth, then rising to the top.
Kisho Arima is more significant in Tokyo Ghoul than we EVER realized.
Throughout Seasons 1 and 2, the name, ARIMA was thrown around loosely. With Tokyo Ghoul having such a large cast of characters, it was hard to differentiate who the real terrorists were in the series.
In the Tokyo Ghoul Manga, Kisho Arima takes the protagonist, Ken Kaneki (recently renamed "Haise Sasaki)," and becomes his mentor. Even though Arima mentors and trains with him, Arima is given orders to kill "Sasaki," if he loses his self-control as a ghoul.
Hopefully, Season 3 of Tokyo Ghoul will explain more about Kisho Arima next year, since he was last shown with Ken Kaneki in Season 2's finale. So much was left unfinished.
Then again, I was recently told by someone on AnimeNation, that Tokyo Ghoul's 2nd season was NOT canon. In other words, this last season we just finished watching was nothing more than a filler arc.
Because Season 2 was a filler arc, it is much better to read the Tokyo Ghoul Manga. Otherwise, you can always read the character summaries, which summarizes what REALLY happened with each character in the story.
Hunting for the English Dub of Tokyo Ghoul: Jack was like pulling teeth. Since I could not find the OVA in English Dub, you will have to watch it in English Subtitles.
Anyway, here is Tokyo Ghoul: Jack for today's Cartoon Sunday. Click on the link below.

How's it going my gumdrops? Do you feel like you learned something from yesterday's blog in regards to trick-or-treating? I really hope so because there is a lot, that most of us didn't already know before I published that blog.
October will be over soon. Can you believe that Halloween is in ONLY 3 more days? This means the current background scenery will be gone until next September; The red floral scenery will return, next month.
At the beginning of this week, it was difficult trying to decide what to share for today. I could not choose between Siouxsie And The Banshees and Danzig's old Horror-Punk band, The Misfits. Both were Goth Rock bands with songs about the holiday, Halloween.
However, Glenn Danzig and The Misfits were more Horror-Punk. Because Siouxsie And The Banshees captures kooky and spookiness so much better, I decided to share more Siouxsie And The Banshees.
Songs from Siouxsie And The Banshees' 4th album, Juju work perfectly for Halloween. Juju was commercially successful in the United Kindgom, during 1981. The album has been viewed as a landmark album of the Post-Punk Rock genre.
According to The Guardian in 2007, Juju ranked on the "1000 Albums To Hear Before You Die" List. The British daily newspaper reported, "Perennial masters of brooding suspense, the Banshees honed their trademark aloof art rock to its hardest and darkest pitch on Juju."
I must say, the songs on Juju can be dark. This can most definitely be said about the song, "Voodoo Dolly." "Voodoo Dolly" should've been a hit single from Juju, if you ask me.
It is surprising that "Voodoo Dolly" was NEVER released on a soundtrack. "Spellbound" and "Halloween" are 2 other songs, that you should add to your Halloween or Horror Music Playlists.
Although, I am highly biased to say that "Voodoo Dolly" should be on your playlist, before any other song from Siouxsie And The Banshees' Juju album.
"Voodoo Dolly" has a haunting, spooky, and ominous tone. This is especially when you listen to Siouxsie Sioux's vocals on that track.
Whenever listening to "Voodoo Dolly," I automatically expect a ghost from the graveyard to suddenly jump out and frighten someone, if not a scornful witch performing a curse on an enemy.
Get ready to be spellbound before Halloween with a Vooodoo Dolly for today's Song Saturday Block. There is a triple dose of songs from Siouxsie And The Banshees' 4th album, Juju.
1) Siouxsie And The Banshees "Spellbound" Juju (1981)
2) Siouxsie And The Banshees "Halloween" Juju (1981)
3) Siouxsie And The Banshees "Voodoo Dolly" Juju (1981)

How's it going my gumdrops? I meant to share today's blog earlier this week, but I've been preoccupied with reconnecting with friends, that I haven't talked to in a little while.
We have only 4 more days until Halloween. Do you have your Halloween costumes and candy ready for the next 3 days? Considering that my neighborhood is a ghost town, it serves no purpose to buy bags of Halloween Candy.
Wauwatosa is also strict about who can give children Halloween Candy.
Home owners have to sign up to give candy to children. It sounds preposterous, but I understand why home owners must do it. Because Wisconsin judges allow pedophiles and other criminals to have housing in suburban neighborhoods, parents really should be more cautious of when and where they allow their children to go trick-or-treating.
Meanwhile, there are those brainwashed, Christian zealots and Jehovah's Witnesses, who believe that Halloween is a so-called "Pagan" or "Satanist Holiday."
Even though the tradition of trick-or-treating from door-to-door for Halloween treats began, during the 16th Century in Great Britain and Ireland, did you know that trick-or-treating did not become a tradition in America until the 1930's?
Generally speaking, North America didn't start celebrating Halloween until the 1920's. Nearly a century ago, treats for children consisted of homemade cookies, pieces of cake to fruits, nuts, coins, and toys, according to The History Channel.
It was not until the 1950's, that candy manufacturers such as Hershey's, Nestle's, Reese's, and Mars for example, started promoting their candy for Halloween.
As children trick-or-treating reached popularity, giving candy to trick-or-treators was considered more convenient and affordable.
In addition, stories about candy tampering developed in 1959. A Fremont, CA dentist named William Shyne played a mean-spirited prank on 450 trick-or-treaters by giving them candy-coated laxatives. 30 out of 450 trick-or-treaters became very sick from them.
On Halloween 1970, a 5-year-old boy from Michigan died from heroin ingestion. Test results showed there was heroin dust on the boy's Halloween Candy. During the '70s, adults giving children packaged candy became the only acceptable treat to give trick-or-treaters for Halloween.
As the decades have gone by, parents have warned their children to CHECK their Halloween Candy. Supposedly, people were sticking needles and other dangerous products into our candy.
Growing up during the 1980's and '90s, my mother always told me to check my candy. Sometimes she would help check the candy with me.
Now that the opiate addictions and overdoses have been back on the rise in America these last several years (including in my home state), parents should most definitely be more cautious and check Halloween Candy for their children.
In the Milwaukee County, which is my county, there have been news reports about "Killer Marijuana."
What is "Killer Marijuana"?
It is Marijuana laced with the opiate, Fentanyl. Supposedly, people are dying from "Killer Marijuana" by doing only 1 hit. There are A LOT of new age drugs out there, that most average people know nothing about.
On a lighter note, I have Halloween Candy Suggestions. If I were a little girl trick-or-treating again, I would LOVE to have adults throw chocolate candy bars and gummy candy in my bucket or bag.
For a spooky treat, I highly recommend Sour Gummy Spiders. YES, this is coming from an arachnophobic, who kills spiders constantly!
Last year, my oldest aunt bought me some, when she was returning from Chicago. It had taken me 2 MONTHS to build up the courage to eat that candy. After putting 1 gummy spider in my mouth, I wanted MORE.
The ONLY time I will ever like a spider is when I'm eating it in candy form. Otherwise, let the spider killing spree continue!
Before I forget, I wanted to let you know that I updated and archived blogs from last October. In case you missed any of these blogs from last year, click on the following links:
Hopefully, you learned something new from today's blog! Get ready for a spooky Song Saturday, tomorrow.

How's it going my gumdrops? Did you enjoy yesterday's Song Saturday blog? After sharing yesterday's blog, I noticed there were still others reading and +1'ing blogs I published last week.
That's not including a spambot, that refused to quit spamming the shit out of my Song Saturday blog about The Bangles. The more I deleted, reported, and told him to stop, he persisted.
This led to me disabling the comments section on that particular blog; Everyone can still comment on the rest of these blogs except "Song Saturday: The Bangles' Walk Like An Egyptian."
As a quick reminder, next Saturday night, Adult Swim's Toonami block will be doing ANOTHER Samurai Jack Marathon for the so-called "Halloween Weekend."
[Toonami Promo]: Samurai Jack Halloween Marathon (2017)
If you're like me, you may be asking "What does another Samurai Jack Marathon have anything to do with Halloween?" Believe me, it doesn't. It would've been more logical to air a Tokyo Ghoul Marathon. Then, follow it up with OVA 1, which is Tokyo Ghoul: Jack. At least it is a Horror Anime and OVA 1 has a Halloweenish theme to it.
Tokyo Ghoul: Jack OVA 1 Trailer [English Subtitles] (2015)
Tokyo Ghoul: Jack features a ghoul, that wears a Jack O' Lantern over her head as a mask, while she's on her killing spree. I will explain more about OVA 1 next week for Cartoon Sunday.
Obviously, Jason DeMarco and The Toonami Team don't know how to schedule their programming. The fans have been complaining about next Saturday night's schedule, since 2 weeks or so ago.
On another note, I thought I would share something a little different for today. If you have a fondness for Dark Humor like I do, you may enjoy today's animated short.
This animated short was created by a Portuguese teenage filmmaker, who goes by the name of Manusfilm Studios. His real name is Manuel Ferreira. Ferreira claims that he loves "combining visual excellence with powerful storytelling."
The animated short, A Deadly Visit is a darkly humored animated short, which is in tribute to his late grandfather, Dom Zito. He died in 2015.
A Deadly Visit is about The Grim Reaper paying an 89-year-old lady, named Mary Ann a visit to her house. Watching him explain to the old lady, that he is there to "harvest her life" is hilarious. She's already deaf and wears hearing aids.
Then, Marry Ann offers The Grim Reaper milk and Chocolate Chip Cookies. Those Chocolate Chip Cookies she baked were highly irresistable to him.
Aside from Mary Ann treating The Grim Reaper like a special guest in her home, she begins justifying to him why she is not ready to die. Mary Ann is supposedly a "good person." This is where the short has an interesting twist.
Is this 89-year-old lady a good person or not? Wait until you see what Mary Ann does to The Grim Reaper. Then, you be the judge for yourself.
With that being said, here is A Deadly Visit for today's Cartoon Sunday.

How's it going my gumdrops? Some of you may be wondering why I didn't share this much sooner. Over this summer, I managed to come across this lyrical video by the Gothic Horror band, Others. Others is mostly a Horror-Punk band.
Throughout these last 3 years, I have shared some of Others' songs. In addition, I have been sharing SOME of my previous October blogs around social media for those, who may have missed them within the last 1-3 years.
For Throwback Thursday, I re-shared a Song Saturday blog, which featured Others. However, I can't believe I overlooked the band's lyrical video, "Heart Of Darkness." "Heart Of Darkness" was recorded for the 2015 film, Tales Of Dracula.
Wolfbain Productions' Tales Of Dracula On DVD Trailer: (2015)
The producer of Tales Of Dracula shot the 2015 film in black and white, in order to give it that Classic Horror appearance and is in tribute to Universal Studios' Dracula.
What is Tales Of Dracula (2015) about?
Tales Of Dracula is about the king of vampires (that being Dracula) returning to his native soil and his castle in the Carpathian Mountains, which is in Romania. Dracula returns to regain his strength.
While being in the Carpathian Mountains, The Dark Prince hunts for a new bride to do his bidding. Dracula chooses a farmer's daughter to be his new bride.
Henry Frankenstein's granddaughter (Victoria) on the other hand, strategizes how she can use the infected blood of Dracula's new bride to rejuvenate the Monster by mixing the vampire's blood with the Monster's. After Dracula discovers he has been betrayed, he swears vengeance.
Tales Of Dracula is on DVD for ~$6.00, if memory serves me right.
Meanwhile, you may be wondering about Others' song, "Heart Of Darkness." Their song made me say to myself, "This would be great to share in October."
What is the song, "Heart Of Darkness" about?
As I was told by Lord Marquis DeBlood, earlier this week, "Heart Of Darkness" was inspired by Francis Ford Coppola's version of Dracula. After Dracula's wife dies, he begins to denounce God.
Who sang the lyrics for "Heart Of Darkness"?
Marquis DeBlood wrote the lyrics and composed "Heart Of Darkness" with the help of Jeff DaBella. Lord Marquis' wife, Mistress Jessica sang the lyrics. She most definitely has beauty and talent. I cannot help commending them for creating such an artistic piece.
If you have your own personal Halloween Music Playlist, you should most definitely add Others' song, "Heart Of Darkness" to it. It is definitely a song worth listening to for Halloween. "Heart Of Darkness" has a very calm yet dark mood.
Since today's blog is in tribute to Dracula, here is "Heart Of Darkness" by the band, Others for today's Song Saturday.

How's it going my gumdrops? Yes, the gif above is indeed creepy, especially with the twinkling stars in those blue eyes. Does anyone here in their 30's or older remember the talking doll, Cricket?
Playmates Toys' Cricket Commercial: (1986)
She was a talking doll with 2-sided tape sets, 4 C batteries for the player, and a 9-volt battery for her mouth to move. She also came with books. An older cousin owned this doll. I wanted Cricket but never got her.
Looking back, I can understand why my mother never bought me this doll. Cricket was creepy. Her eyes always moved, when she talked and she was a doll, that NEVER shut up.
However, I don't recall of ever seeing Cricket's mouth move, when she was talking. This is something I realized recently.
In addition to recently learning, that the doll's mouth moved, I discovered that Playmates Toys released 3 different types of Cricket dolls.
Did you know there were 2 black versions of the doll?
Black Cricket Doll #1:
Do you notice the differences in these 2 black Cricket dolls?
Doll #1 is identical to the original white Cricket doll, whereas doll #2 has short curly hair with no ribbons. It's amazing what you discover on the Internet!
I get the impression these 2 dolls were released after the original. Had my cousin seen these versions, she would've made her mother buy them because they were black dolls.
Not only did I recently discover that there were 2 other types of Cricket dolls specifically meant for black girls, but Cricket also had 2 siblings.
Jill had voice recognition capabilities and cartridges compared to Cricket and Corky using tapes. There was another picture I saw of Jill. I'm not gonna lie to you folks. I legitimately felt creepy vibes, as a woman and a Horror fan.
Staring at Jill being out of her box and sitting instantly gave me goosebumps. Maybe I spent too much time watching Child's Play, during my youth.
Meanwhile, watching this video years ago was creepy yet hilarious at the same time. I'm still trying to decide who is creepier, Cricket or the guy in his basement? He looks like a serial killer filming Cricket, which can be viewed as somewhat disturbing.
In this video, Cricket keeps talking. I'm amazed the doll was still working, when this guy was filming her.

How's it going my gumdrops? It is refreshing to see that some of you liked yesterday's blog, which featured Helicopter Girl's "Satan's Seventh Bride." Like I said before, it was something different than the usual. Let's continue this trend for today's Cartoon Sunday blog.
As you look at the gif above, some of you are probably saying, "Aww, look at that black sheep! Isn't it cute?!" Don't let that black sheep's cuteness fool you. Today's short takes a horrific turn. Do you remember the English nursery rhyme, "Baa, Baa, Black Sheep"?
"Bah, Bah, a black Sheep,
Have you any Wool?
Yes merry I Have,
Three Bags full,
Two for my Master,
One for my Dame,
None for the Little Boy
That cries in the lane."
The last line was revised as "But none for the little boy who cries in the lane," in the 1765 Mother Goose Edition. Over time, "Baa, Baa, Black Sheep" was modified as saying:
"Baa, baa, black sheep,
Have you any wool?
Yes, sir, yes, sir,
Three bags full;
One for the master,
And one for the dame,
And one for the little boy
Who lives down the lane."
In 1761, some theorists have claimed this nursery rhyme was a complaint against Medieval English taxes on wool and that it was about the slave trade. By the 20th Century, "Baa, Baa, Black Sheep" became a controversial subject.
"Baa, Baa, Black Sheep" sparked debates about "political correctness."
There are those, who automatically associate "Baa, Baa, Black Sheep" with American Slave Trade from The South. Considering how obsessed Americans are with "political correctness" ad nauseam, it goes without saying, that the nursery rhyme is "racially dubious," "racist," etc.
This was especially, when it came to the Medieval English "Great" or "Old Custom" Wool Tax of 1275. This heavy wool taxation lasted, until the 15th Century.
Aside from the controversy, Axeman Cartoons gives a sinister yet apocalyptic meaning to the nursery rhyme, "Baa, Baa, Black Sheep."
In this Horror Animated Short, it appears that the black sheep is out for blood, while seeking restitution for something. Honestly, I could not tell you what that guy did to the black sheep to cause all hell to break loose. It's as if the black sheep turned into Damien from The Omen.
Yes, the black sheep is that evil! Anyway, here is Axeman Cartoons' Black Sheep for today's Cartoon Sunday.

How's it going my gumdrops?
Hex: Azazeal Seduces Cassie Scene (2004)
Surely you're scratching your heads and wondering, "What show is this?" Have you ever heard of the Supernatural Horror Dramedy, Hex?
[BBC America Promo:] Hex (2012)
There was no luck of me finding the above scene in English. I spent the last 2 days hunting for that specific scene because it has relevance to today's blog.
What foreign language was the above scene dubbed in?
Honestly, I have no idea. Judging by the sounds of it, Hex was dubbed in a Slavic language like Russian or something similar to it.
What was Hex about?
Originally, Cassie Hughes was the protagonist of Hex. During the first 6 episodes, the TV series was about her being a shy school girl struggling to assimilate with her peers, while attending a remote English boarding school called Medenham Hall.
Medenham Hall occupied the former manor house and grounds of the McBain Estate. During the 18th Century, the estate was the sight of a witchcraft scandal. Much like The Salem Witch Trials, the scandal consisted of women from the Medenham Witch family line being tried and executed.
Cassie's telekinetic, pyrokinetic, and clairvoyant abilities were awakened, after she touched an antique vase, which had been used for Voodoo rituals by the Medenham Witches. To Thelma's (Cassie's best friend's) surprise, she learned that Cassie was a descendant of the Medenham Witches.
Meanwhile, a "dangerous looking" creep by the name of Azazeal stalked Cassie around the campus. Azazeal was a fallen angel and the leader of the Biblical, Nephilim.
Previously, the fallen angel seduced not only Cassie's schoolmistress, Jo Watkins, but also Cassie's mother. Her mother being seduced by Azazeal in the past contributed to her mother's mental disorders.
According to Azazeal (fallen angel), he was "in love" with Cassie. It was not until the fallen angel seduced her, that she became pregnant with his spawn, Malachi. Cassie tried aborting Malachi and failed at doing so.
In the process of Cassie discovering, that she was a witch, being a descendant of the Medenham Witches, being seduced, and impregnated by Azazeal, her boyfriend left the campus.
Troy (Cassie's boyfriend, who was played by The Vampire Diaries' Joseph Morgan) was convinced, that Cassie was pregnant with HIS son. Troy left Medenham Hall, at the end of the original series.
There were many twists and turns, throughout this Supernatural Horror Dramedy. If you never had the opportunity to watch Hex, I recommend it. A number of changes were made by the 2nd season, as far as the writing went.
This week, I have something different from the usual to share with you. As I stated earlier, I spent the last 2 days hunting for that scene with Azazeal seducing Cassie because it has relevance to today's blog.
In the background of that scene, Helicopter Girl's song, "Satan's Seventh Bride" can be heard. Who is Helicopter Girl? Helicopter Girl is the stage name of the Scottish singer, Jackie Joyce. She debuted with her album, How To Steal The World in 2000. On that same album, "Satan's Seventh Bride" can be heard.
Speaking of Azazeal seducing Cassie on Hex, while Helicopter Girl's song played in the background, here is "Satan's Seventh Bride" for today's Song Saturday.
