Happy Halloween! - Awesome Movie Clips

We now interrupt the regularly scheduled friend-quotes to bring you some of my favorite clips and quotes of Halloween. :)

We'll start things off with Michael Jackson's Thriller. The first time I saw this one I was when my good friend Wendy brought this movie over to my house for all our buddies to watch. It was epic then, and gets better every time I watch it. I love the awesome 80's special effects. And nobody beats MJ. Nobody.

Next, who celebrates Halloween better than the residents of Halloweentown? This video features a light show to the song "This is Halloween" from The Nightmare Before Christmas. Honestly, the movie itself isn't my favorite- the whole twisted turn on Christmas freaks me out just a bit too much. But the music is genius. And this light show is fantastic.

And last but not least, what good is Halloween without Charlie Brown and his awesome gang? It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown is, in my opinion, an American classic. Almost every little kid in the US watches this at least once in their young lives, rooting along with Linus as he waits for the Great Pumpkin. My favorite part of this clip? Linus' smooth deposit of his letter into the mailbox. Way to show Lucy what's what, Linus.

So yep, those a few of my faves. What about you guys out there reading this? Have any Halloween favorites or memories you'd like to share? I would love to hear from you! And have a Happy Halloween!

How Harry Potter Should Have Ended

So my friends and family say some pretty funny things. As much as we hate to admit it, though, half the time we laugh more not at the witty things we come up with on our own, but at the witty things we quote. This clip is what my buddies and I have been quoting and laughing about for a while now (warning, it's really only funny if you've seen the last Harry Potter movie).

Lest We Forget...

Some sayings are life-changing. Winston Churchill rocked the world with “Never give up.” Mahatma Ghandi is still making waves with “You must be the change you wish to see in the world.” And Parker Summers inspired everyone who heard him utter the sacred words, “This feeling some call panic? I call it productivity.” Because of Parker’s wisdom, countless college students mired in the depths of procrastination take courage and press on, completing the essay, the project, the presentation an hour before due, sometimes after staying up through the night to complete it. Parker Summers, I salute you. Good luck on the mish.
