Friday The 13th: The Game (Announcement Trailer)

I'm a big fan of horror movies so I'm well acquainted with the "Friday The 13th" franchise. I love all the movies so I'm looking forward to the brand new video game based on the series. It will be released for Xbox One, Playstation 4 and Steam. Support the game now on Kickstarter.

"For the first time since 1989, you have the opportunity to finally be Jason Voorhees! Stalk camp counselors across Crystal Lake as Jason Voorhees, or assume the role of a helpless camper and attempt to survive the night. This is the horror game you've been waiting for, brought to you by Gun Media, IllFonic, Tom Savini, Sean Cunningham, Kane Hodder and Harry Manfredini!"

Lovely Laura Leighton

Oh, how I love Laura Leighton! Nineties soap "Melrose Place" made me a huge fan of hers. The devious yet lovable Sydney Andrews was irresistible and quickly became one of my favourite characters. I can watch that series over and over without getting bored.

Since 2010, Laura plays the stylish Ashley Marin on teen soap "Pretty Little Liars", another one of my favourite series. I just started rewatching it on DVD and seeing Laura Leighton is a joy.

Don't forget to follow Laura on Twitter!

Me and Marilyn Monroe

Ever since I was a little boy, I have looked up to Marilyn Monroe. Not just because on her talent and icon status, but because I saw myself in her. I'm not talking about her looks, obviously, since I'm not even half as beautiful as she was. I'm talking about relating to her on a personal level.

Most people think of Marilyn Monroe as just a glamorous sex symbol, the "dumb blonde" who had an affair with the president. Personally, I'm much more interested in the woman behind the glamour and beauty. The sensitive and sometimes fragile woman who fought to be taken seriously and who went through so much pain in her life. The woman who tried her best to survive in a world where sensitivity is seen as a weakness.

I don't know who the real Marilyn was. No one does, at least not completely. But I have my own interpretation of who she was, and that's the Marilyn I relate to. I know it sounds silly, but sometimes it feels like I have a special connection with Marilyn, like I know her. I guess all fans feel that way, but still...

Reading about Marilyn, watching her movies, listening to her music and reading her poems really helps me cope when I'm feeling blue. It makes me feel less alone, like someone out there really understands me, even if it's just an illusion.

In loving memory of Marilyn Monroe (1926-1962)



Marilyn Monroe... and me.
