Halloween Classic: Hocus Pocus

ABC Family's 13 Night of Halloween is back, and it kicked off with the 1993 Disney cult classic, Hocus Pocus! The movie stars Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy as the Sanderson Sisters, the witches who have come back from being dead for 300 years thanks to a virgin lighting the black flame candle.

However, this is not to talk about the film itself. This is a plea to Disney to release a Special Edition Hocus Pocus on DVD. Currently the DVD is bare bones. No deleted scenes or special features like documentaries and such. The film is a cult classic and every Halloween people buy up the DVD and anticipate it being on TV. I'm surprised it hasn't been released with additional content. We know there are scenes that were in the trailer but not in the film. One such shows the sisters in a supermarket.

Maybe there will be something going on for 2013, which will be the 20th Anniversary. Yes, that will make everyone feel old. There have also been rumors of a sequel. Hopefully if there is one, it has the original cast. I don't think people would be excited about one of those direct-to-DVD films with new people playing the characters.

Show your support, E-Mail Disney and ask them to release a Special Edition of Hocus Pocus on DVD and Blu Ray! Hurry, go now, I put a spell on you.

Also, this site has pictures of the filming locations in Salem, Massachusetts as they look now. Some of them look the same!

Funny Videos

Everyone loves funny videos from YouTube. You have to check this one out, of a Turkey chasing an ABC News Producer. Her commentary is pure comedy gold. "He's out there waiting for me..." "I would not want to be the people living here, thank you very much."

Next is a great comedian who spoofs various famous people. Her name is Amy Phillips, and her impressions are spot on. Some of her spoofs include Casey Anthony, the Mob Wives, Ramona from the Real Housewives, Kat Von D (with Jesse James), Sarah Jessica Parker, Rachel Zoe, Glee and others. Check her funny videos out!

Miami Marlins Funny Home Run Feature

Okay, even non-Baseball fans will get a kick out of this. The Florida Marlins are changing their name to the Miami Marlins and moving into a new stadium. They're moving from the Dolphins football stadium, Sun Life Stadium in Miami Gardens, to a new baseball stadium in the little Havana section of Miami starting in 2012.

So, their new stadium will have an over-the-top Home Run feature. It looks like if the Circus Circus or Mardi Gras resort in Las Vegas had a baby with Ocean Drive on South Beach. See here:

Yes, it looks like an Acid Trip. Maybe that's the point? Might bring in some new fans...they can't really have a "first 15,000 fans get a free hit of ecstasy" night, since it's illegal and all, so this was the next best thing. The thing will flash and those things will move around and make marlin noises and apparently splash water whenever the Marlins hit a home run. I think the Marlins are going to become the favorite team of all potheads. Anyone that is High would love to stare at that. Increased attendance for sure!

Recovering drug addicts may want to be kept out of the park though. This thing screams Relapse! Or who knows...maybe it will make them think they're on drugs, thus keeping them off? One can only wonder.

Where Might the Next NASA Satellite Land?

If you haven't heard by now, that falling NASA Satellite landed in the Pacific Ocean a few weeks ago. It got me thinking...where might the next falling satellite land? I have some theories. Maybe Las Vegas will start taking bets.

1. The Kardashian House. I actually think they may arrange for this to happen. Think of the publicity they will get! Reports all around the house, NASA coming to collect it. It won't be for a while though. This will come after the inevitable highly publicized divorce between Kim Kardashian and NBA star Kris Humphries. (Oh you know it's bound to happen.)

2. Onto the body of Osama Bin Laden at the bottom of the ocean. The ocean is always the most likely place for it to land, since it's so big. So, when it sinks to the bottom, maybe it will land on top of Bin Laden's body. Or possibly a shipwreck. Hopefully not the Titanic. If it's between Bin Laden and the Titanic, it lands on Bin Laden. Nobody would be upset with that. Oh, and speaking of the Titanic, will Titanic 3D be the last 3D re-release that actually makes good money? The Lion King 3D has made a ton at the Box Office, but people will eventually get tired of all these expensive 3D re-releases. Back to falling satellites...

3. Oprah's backyard. She OWNs (see what I did there?!?) everything else, why not an old satellite?

4. Onto a Glacier. Glacier's seem to be taking a beating lately.

5. Into Cowboys Stadium in Dallas. That's what you get for building such an over-the-top stadium! (Though it does look cool.)

6. On top of Casey Anthony. I'm not sure people would care about this one. We know Nancy Grace wouldn't! She would throw the biggest party known to mankind.
