Happy Canada Day, Eh!

OH, CANADA!

Happy 150th Birthday to my
Neighbor to the South!

– Windsor is directly south of Detroit –

I’ve always been able to be on international soil in a matter of minutes, (pre 9/11), for an extra-large order of poutine with a can of Pink Crush Cream Soda, and my monthly case of Willy Wonka’s Everlasting HOT Gobstoppers were always in stock.
Maybe I started to take you for granted, Windsor. For that, I apologize.

You gave us Bob & Doug McKenzie, Tim Horton’s, Wayne Gretzky, and Kraft dinner!
You welcomed me with open arms on my 19th birthday, and said “Have a drink on us, you’re legal here!”
Legal prostitution doesn’t interest me,  so you said I could show my titties on the street whenever I wanted! (oYo)  A #FF that still might come in handy one day…
Since legalized marijuana wasn’t my ‘thing’ – you gave me OTC codeine.
You STILL don’t tax casino winnings, Canadian bingo is never farther than a ten minute drive, and every birthday girl and bachelorette within 150 miles knows there are wangs-a-plenty waiting at Danny’s!

I’ve tried to come see you, and apologize in person – honest I have!
But the door guy said you wouldn’t see me now. Not without a passport.
It’s ok, though. He was super polite when he told me.
And I have my Loonies and Toonies to comfort me every time I miss you, and I’ll be waving to you from the other side of the river tonight at your fireworks celebration.

HAPPY CANADA DAY, EH!

2017 marks the 8th Annual
Women in Horror Month!

This inclusive and positive movement is open to everyone, just as the horror genre should be.

Women in Horror Month (WiHM) is an international, grassroots initiative, which encourages supporters to learn about and showcase the underrepresented work of women in the horror industries. Whether they are on the screen, behind the scenes, or contributing in their other various artistic ways, it is clear that women love, appreciate, and contribute to the horror genre.

WiHM celebrates these contributions to horror throughout the year via the official WiHM blog, Ax Wound, The Ax Wound Film Festival, and with the official WiHM event/project database in February. This database—in conjunction with the WiHM social media fan base—actively promotes do-it-yourself annual film screenings, blogs/articles, podcasts, and any other form of creative media with the ultimate goal of helping works by and featuring women reach a wider audience.
