Hey guys!

Great podcast! It was really informative because I didn't know that the NFL was thinking about coming here to Hawaii. I don't like football that much, but it was a good topic. I miss having a female voice, but I guess that can't be helped. Have a guest on! Haha!

So my choices for the two debates are vampires and classic horror films. Like points that were brought up, you do have immortality and you are always powerful. But yes, the drawback is that you watch the people you love die. Yet, that is the choice you make and you have to live with that. Also, if you do have family, I think it would be kewl to watch how your family grows and expands. I also like how things change and evolve, though it would be sucky if everything went to shit. But I'm a hopeful person.

For classic horror films, I love "Nightmare on Elm Street" and Vincent Price's "House of Wax" (i'm not sure if that counts as horror). There are more character development and I'm not sure if it's true to say they are story driven than action, but I see more story. I'm big on films telling me a story, a story that makes sense or could make sense. I hate the gory movies and just having people suffer in excruciating pain. That's not entertainment for me. I want to be scared not see blood and guts everywhere. I do appreciate the modern movies and I love..love the Underworld series and some of the new vampire movies like "Interview with the Vampire." But not Twilight, I appreciate how it brings a different take on vampirism, but hell fucking no. I also enjoy some of the Japanese horror flicks, not Ringu or the Grudge series, but some of the older ones. There's one movie called "Yorichi, the Earless," which is about a monk who is haunted and he has charms painted on his body to make him invisible to the ghost, but he forgets his ears. When the ghost sees it, it rips it off.

Sorry, this went on longer that it was supposed to! My bad!

Okie, so top three scary/horror flicks:

1. Child's Play 2 - I only saw the second one and it scared me so bad, it made me cry.
2. It - Though now it's actually one of my favorite horror flicks, but there's still some parts I can't watch. And I still don't like clowns.
3. The Shining - Little kids and Jack Nickleson can be so creepy. And this is actually one of my favorite flicks as well.

Ok. I'm done. I'm so sorry it's so long! Have a great day guys!
