I can always rely on the Halloween season to get me back into the darker and scarier sides of pop culture. This week in my annual celebration of all things horror I'm reviewing a couple new TV shows and movies. American Horror Story is the new show from Ryan Murphy that is packed with crazy scary moments and other moments that just leave you scratching your head as to what just happened. Death Valley on MTV is a more comedic take on horror, but still has plenty of scares. I also give my opinion on Kevin Smith's horror thriller Red State. While I didn't get into it I have to say I don't see how Kevin Smith was tying this into the crazy antics of Fred Phelps, besides them both being religious nuts. I also review the low bugdet but very good indie flick, Megan is Missing. The music comes from a couple bands I saw last week, Lights and Rubik and a couple bands of good new ethereal electronic bands, Phantogram and Phantasmagoria.

music:
Rubik - Laws of Gravity
Lights - Siberia
Phantasmagoria - Empty Houses
Phantogram - Don't Move

Even podcasters like me need to stay in shape, or at least maintain some small degree of feeling physically fit. Sometimes all it takes to get me moving is some new sports apparel. Worn shoes and sweats with holes in them just don't make me feel very motivated. The problem is, more times than not, when I drive out to the local sports apparel store and pick out the shoes I want, wouldn't you know it, they don't have my shoe size in stock. That's why I go online and shop at Champs Sports. They have a wide selection of sporting goods to get anything I need for exercise or just look like I do. They also carry all the latest brands and have great prices. Get those fingers typing over to Champs Sports, save  some money, and look great.

Somebody once said to me "You can dance if you want to, you can leave your friends behind. Becuase your friends don't dance and if they don't dance, well, they're no freinds of mine." That person was Ivan Doroschuk, the leader of Men Without Hats, the song was "Safety Dance" and the year was around 1984 - 27 years ago! Most people considered Men Without Hats a one-hit wonder band, but, I held on to those words, and followed Men Without Hats for the next several years. They, in fact, had a few other hits, such as "Pop Goes the World" and a large number of other good songs that had powerful lyrics behind what appeared to be simple song titles and happy beats. I never got to see Men Without Hats live in the 80's so when they announced a 2011 tour, I mad a plan to see the band and speak to Ivan about why so long since the last tour. While I van has a strong, baritone singing voice, I found he's actually quite soft-spoken and has a bit of the French-Canadian accent so you'll have to listen closely to the interview. The performance by Men Without Hats was exhilarating and very refreshing to see so much energy displayed on stage from Ivan who was obviously enjoying himself. Men Without Hats is working on a new record that goes back to their synth-dance sound and will probably go back on the road again next year.

You will have to excuse me today I'm a little tired. Last night I was hanging out with Grey from the Dark Hours podcast and a group of his friends to see The Thing which despite the bad reviews it's been receiving is a pretty good movie with some good special effects and still retains a bit of John Carpenter's intensity from his version of the movie. Speaking of the Dark Hours, Grey's podcast is back after a hiatus and his new episodes include his pal (and mine) the Cutter. So, in my lazy Saturday condition, I compiled this audio episode from some recent shows that I have been to. I talk with I Fight Dragons about their new record "Kaboom" which is out soon. My friend Ryan Allen from Destroy This Place explains what he likes about the website bandcamp. And, I have some preview interview clips from Sims and Ceil Otter from Doomtree who I saw perform last week with my brother Kevin. I also talk about the movie "Brotherhood" which is a fraternity pledge gone wrong movie that everyone should check out on netflix streamng.

songs:

AM & Shawn Lee - Dark Into LIght
I Fight Dragons - The Geeks Will Inherit the Earth
Destroy This Place - All That Glitters
Sims - Sleep Late (Hood Internet remix)
Cecil Otter - RebelYellow

I've been to a ton of shows these past few months but here's one I was at that you probably wouldn't have guessed. At Pike Room on a hot Saturday night, a few of YouTube brightest stars took the stage displaying both their talent for covers as well as their originals. Now I'm not a female and I haven't been 15 for more than a couple dozen years, but I do have a daughter who is 12 and I've got an interest in talking to YouTube stars, finding out how they get their YouTube views and how they navigate their career. The more I hear from these YouTube Stars the more I keep making this odd comparison of what they to do as today's definition of punk rock. Seriously, hear me out on this, it's a total DIY effort, from their homemade videos, to having the audacity to put their own spin on today's most popular songs, to releasing their music on their own labels. Putting the punk rock angle aside what these kids are doing is fun and entertaining.

Local YouTube artist, Laura Jean, warmed up the show playing a few of her charming originals as well as a cover of Maroon 5's "Misery" which had the crowd clapping and singing along. Following Laura, was Luke Conard, who provided the nerdy talent of the show with songs about Harry Potter, compulsive gaming and robot love. He brought the crowd into the show by rushing off stage and dancing. Tiffany Alvord, the youngest performer on the tour, played a set of covers that ranged from "Moves Like Jagger" to B.O.B's "Magic". Her own songs also held up their own next to the covers. Alex Goot was the headliner and the most accomplished artist of the show. Playing his set with a full band and Goot, himself, on piano, he filled his set with his own songs which the crowd seemed to know and a few well placed covers. The show ended with a melody that included the YouTube hit that everybody loves but doesn't want to admit,"Friday."

Last week I spent most of my weekend at Detroit Fanfare , a comic convention located in the heart of Detroit that had a slew of great comic writers and artists and a few TV/movie celebrities. The show was an amazingly good time, I had the chance to be on a podcasting panel that you can download here and hung out with old friend and made some new ones. One disappointment was the show attendence which was much less than anticipated. If you didn't make it down to Detroit Fanfare this year, try and come out mext year to support this awesome event.

This weeks audio edition of Most People Are DJs is an interview packed episode from Detroit Fanfare that includes me spending a few minutes with actor Adam Baldwin from Chuck and Firefly. I also talk with Jordan Trovillion from Comics Continuum where show is the host as well as an actress and much more. Then I get to have some words with some of my favorite comic writers and artists which include Dirk Manning , Sean McKeever , Seth DaMoose and Raven Gregory . There's also four great songs of indie hip hop.

songs:
Oh Ye Denver Birds - I Believe In Love, Kid
Astronautalis - Dimitri Mandaleev
Boots Electric - Complexity
Moe Green - Nimbus (Calms Casino remix)
