I realize some of you are sort of put off by all the Hauntcast stuff that's been going on, so I apologize to those who are in that camp. It'll all blow over soon, one way or the other, and things will go back to whatever passes for normal around here.
First up: Resurrect Hauntcast banners. Gary B and Dminor were kind enough to make banners for folks to put in their signatures, on their blogs, etc. If you feel moved to do so, go right ahead. Just link it to the Hauntcast Subscribe page.
There's a new sidebar banner available, too.
Grimlock has stepped forward and volunteered to create Hauntcast, The Magazine, with prop how-tos, horror reviews, and other yummilicious haunted goodness in old-school papery magazine form. Here's the latest updated list of discounts, plus the word is that if our goal is met, there will be a raffle, prizes listed below.
THIS JUST IN: The Undertaker just offered an across the board 20% discount to all Hauntcast subscibers on his Haunted Hot Sauce, the only hot sauce that comes in its own, hand-made cedar coffin!
AND: a new raffle prize from Juneau Studios:
Yes, the Lizzy Borden Mirror, a $2500 value. Two feet tall by fifteen inches wide, it comes with four DVDs: Blood Writing, Clown Changing Portrait, Poltergeist Portrait and Lizzie Borden. Each subscriber has not one, but two chances at winning this amazing prize!
As if that were not enough, Allen Hopps of Stiltbeast Studios has officially offered to do the prop segment to complete the Scream Team and take on the prop guy's red shirt. Brave man!
With all the discounts and offers, your subscription more than pays for itself. And if we, by chance, hit 350 subscribers, the cost of the subscription goes down to $75, and the difference will be refunded to everyone.
Lastly, Chris Baker's last word on this whole thing on YouTube.
If you are one of those people who loves to get your monthly dose of haunting via podcast, you'll know that the Hallowe'en and haunt podcasting field is starting to look pretty desolate these days. Rue Morgue is officially gone, unfortunately, and RFR is unable to consistently produce shows due to health issues. Hauntcast has the experience and the passion to bring you the best season, yet, or, die forever. Whatever.
Lastly, a random picture I took at my local Hallmark store while searching for Valentine's joy for Mr. ShellHawk. If you actually read down this far, you deserve it!
I posted it to my Facebook page, addressed to all trolls and haters. I'm still working on that whole "refraining from commenting thing." It's not really a comment though, right? It's just a sign.
