Retro Con 2017 Panel: The Breaux Show & SEO Toy Review

One of my personal highlights from Retro Con was getting to co-host a panel with Mike Breaux from the Breaux Show. Mike live broadcast (audio only) the first portion of our panel together. It was so much fun! The second half involved questions and answers from the crowd. We didn't broadcast that portion. Sorry about the audio quality, it's hard recording something like this at a convention. Mike and I had a lot of fun, so we may try to do it again sometime. We start by talking about the stop motion commercial I made for Retro Con, then we talked about Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and finally the Breaux Show Exclusive Lego set for Retro Con.

Sleepy Hollow Hayride - Newtown, PA

It's October... and so warm it almost doesn't feel like Halloween time. As I have for the past several years, each weekend I help put on a show for people in the Halloween spirit at Sleepy Hollow Hayride in Newtown, PA. I help manage the zombies, witches, and ghouls that haunt the hayride and field of fright.

 Henrietta, the fire breathing dragon has been one of my favorite scenes on the hayride for my entire time at Sleepy Hollow. This year she is terrorizing a hayride wagon instead of the a school bus like she did in the past. Henrietta is unique to Sleepy Hollow, and enormous... plus did I mention she breaths fire?!?!

One of the newer characters to haunt Newtown is this awesome specter. He's a hit even with the other terrors of the farm. Here the specter poses for a photo with some of the other scarers.

I was having fun trying to photograph the fire twirler. I really like how this photo turned out. It's hard to balance the motion blur with the shutter speed needed to capture enough light. I think it turned out pretty well.
