My Favorite Australian

Artist, musician, madman, recreational psychopath”. This is how my friend Michael describes himself. But he forgot to add “really sweet guy”. When we spun the Scary Matter globe and landed in Australia, I immediately thought of him. Who better to get ideas from than a native Aussie?

Letta Me Out!

Why do I look for this shit?  Creepy dolls are one thing, but this bad boy is going to haunt my dreams! Creepy dolls are everywhere you look. As far as I’m concerned, marionettes and ventriloquist dummies are the worst. Now I want to introduce you to Letta. A haunted doll on another level with a face to match.

Lake Mungo

Lake Mungo was an interesting movie. But I’ll be honest – I had a hard time thinking about writing this.  I couldn’t decide how I wanted to classify this movie. It’s a horror/thriller/mystery/ghost story disguised as a documentary.

The Drake Hotel

Brothers John and Tracy Drake came from a hotel family.  So it was no surprise to anyone that they built a hotel as magnificent as Chicago’s Drake Hotel. It was located right between a residential area and a commercial area. The Drake opened in 1920 and quickly became one of Chicago’s hot spots.
