One of the most important musicians in Rock has passed as we lose an icon in Lemmy. From his loud as hell bass playing to his amazing songwriting chops, the man was a legend and inspiration to us all. When you saw Motorhead live, you left deaf and happy. No disappointment as Lemmy and company delivered a blistering set night in and night out. The man was everything Rock N' Roll embodied, enough said. Lately, he has been sick and, though he is now at peace I still miss him. The man was an inspiration both musically and personally to me and so many around the globe. There will never be another like him or another band like Motorhead. So, turn the stereo up to 11 and play the music of one of the greatest musicians ever. R.I.P. Lemmy, we'll miss you.

In Memoriam: Brooke McCarter
Today, we have lost another star from the movie Lost Boys. Brooke McCarter or, better known as Paul to fans of the movie, has passed. For those who don’t know of the movie, it is maybe the most important vampire movie to come out in the last 30 years in my honest opinion. The movie is that good. Everyone in that movie played an important role in making that movie what it is. Brooke McCarter played a role next to Sutherland that took that movie from just a so so idea to something that means so much to so many all these years later. R.I.P man, you may not have done that many roles but, the one you are most well known for will never be forgotten.

Seduction of the Innocent (#1)
New guy from Cleveland walks into an FBI murder investigation where mob bosses go missing without a trace! It's bloody and there is a lot going on in this single issue that acts like a tribute to EC comics. This is an enjoyable read as this mini series looks like it will be a hard hitting pleasure for fans or murder/mystery as everything is getting laid out in this dynamite first issue.
Gotham by Midnight (#11)
So the battle has begun and Corrigan is not in control of the Specter as those killed unjustly in Gotham get their revenge. Throw in the fact that the doctor is possessed and an appearance by Batman and, you have a lot of action happening all at once! Yea! This is an issue that is all action and doesn't let up or slow down. Now that Heaven is getting involved, I wonder where this will head next as the future of Gotham hangs in the balance.

Constantine: The Hellblazer (#6)
There is no place like home and after a tough bit of business (that included the loss of his lost friends who haunt him) John doesn't want to be left alone with his thoughts. That leads to him to a day on the town working! That's right folks, this issue that is a day in the life kind of thing and it is a nice breather. One intense story has ended and this issue is a chance to take stock in what has happened while setting up the next storyline. There are plenty of laughs and the story and art are great! This is a massive improvement over the previous New 52 series that ran for 23 issues. Get on this, you'll be happy you did.

John Carpenter's Tales for a Halloweenight Volume 1
In Memoriam: Gunnar Hansen
Today, we lost a original. Someone who helped to create the slasher genre as we know it today. Today, we have lost Gunnar Hansen, the original Leatherface from Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Sure, there is a debate that Peeping Tom and Psycho were the originals but, you can not discount the influence that TCM has had on slasher films since its debut. One reason that the film has been so influential and continues to this day is the performance of Gunnar as Leatherface. The sounds he makes, the way he moves and the way he wields that chainsaw is masterful. Sure, he has done other movies including the last TCM 3D where he plays a role but, he will always be Leatherface. Maybe the best one to ever put the mask on. He created what we know of him from that performance while everyone else has been following in his footsteps. R.I.P Gunnar, you will be missed.
