The Black Dog Video Newsletter: Creepy Dolls and Flying Balls Edition!

 

I love this time of year. Fall. Halloween. It’s not summer anymore. With that said I have a few items on the agenda to discuss.

We have a new Halloween themed podcast episode that was just released! We kick off our Halloween season by drinking and chewing the fat over Don Coscarelli’s bizarro horror classic Phantasm…and drinking. Digressions include Zombo Strongoni, the correct way to ride a bike and how many Baldwins is too many Baldwins? I think it’s one of our best episodes! Listen in here!

Also! I’m in the market (free market that is) for any creepy (or non-creepy) dolls for our Halloween display. If you have any of these things that have been haunting your hallways and dreams and want to expel them from your home, drop me a line.

And one last thing! Since it’s Halloween month, and I know that you all love scary movies, here’s a list we complied a few years ago (been recently updated) of our favourite horror films! Just in case you need a recommend (since we can’t do that in the shop anymore).

Enjoy the day, my lovelies, I’ll be back in a couple of weeks with another episode!

The Black Dog Newsletter: Be a Local Hero Edition!

This week on the Black Dog Video After Dark Podcast…Dylan returns from Scotland alive to join Darren & Alex for a drink and to discuss Bill Forsyth’s odd and magical charmer Local Hero. Digressions include make-out movies, tree witches and Wormwoods Dog and Monkey House which Alex swears is a real place. Pour yourself a scotch and listen in with your ears and enjoy!

And I wanted to toss out a big thank you to all you lovely folks who turned out for my big yard sale movie sale a couple of Sundays ago. Nice to see some familiar and warm faces and sell off some great films. I still have lots more and will be posting them a few times a week on the Instagram and Facebook Black Dog sites.

I’ve got a little gig working for The Vancouver International Film Festival. Drop by International Village, aka Tinseltown, and say hi if I’m around (and catch some cool films)!

I hope that everyone is doing ok out there and enjoy Halloween month!

One last thing – This Saturday I am part of a brewery hockey tournament that is also a fundraiser for Britannia After School Hockey. It’s a great program that gives kids who normally could not a chance to play hockey, get equipment and be provided with coaching and life mentoring. If you can make it to the event there will be beer from 20+ BC breweries and some on ice action with 4 regional brewery teams. You can get a ticket here https://tinyurl.com/4s6rd6ms Tickets are $25 and include a can of beer.

If you can’t make it but want to help support the program just buy a ticket and don’t show up:) https://tinyurl.com/4s6rd6ms

Enjoy the lovely end of summer weather and talk to you soon.
