HBA MEMBERS "ROLL CALL" [2018]


First, been a long... long... long time since I have been checking in with this place. I miss it, what it was, what it meant and who it meant too. So forgive me, I wanted to know if there is anyone still out there, many of the "HBA MEMBERS" links are dead... so many dead... where do we go from here?

Is there anyone out there?
Any thoughts, it really about you all...
Should we shock this place, back to life?
Leave a comment, let me know your thoughts...

Katherine Tegen Books: "A BABYSITTER’S GUIDE TO MONSTER HUNTING" by Joe Ballarini

It’s not every day you learn that monsters are real… In A BABYSITTER’S GUIDE TO MONSTER HUNTING (Katherine Tegen Books; ages 8+), the first in a thrilling and hilarious new series by professional screenwriter Joe Ballarini, they are not only real, they are planning to populate the world with monsters from little kids’ nightmares. The Montecito Picture Company and Walden Films are producing the film adaptation, written by Ballarini and starring Keegan Michael Key.

When middle schooler Kelly Ferguson’s Halloween plans switch from party-going to babysitting, she thinks the scariest part of her night will be the death of her social life. She’s not babysitter material—doesn’t like little kids and thinks it’s a job for nerds—but she needs cash if she wants to go to summer camp; and she wants to go to summer camp, bad.  But when her first charge, four-year-old Baby Jacob, gets carried off by monsters—who really do live under his bed!—to the Grand Guignol (also known as the Boogeyman), she learns there’s a whole lot more to fear than temper-tantrums. Like chasing shadow monsters, drop-kicking Toadies, and mastering monster-fighting moves like the Naptime Headlock and Playground Punch.

Now, with the help of an ancient handbook and a secret society of butt-kicking babysitters, Kelly sets out to destroy the Boogeyman before he brings Jacob’s nightmares to life. But when the monsters’ trail leads to her school’s big Halloween bash, Kelly will have to prove she can save the world—without totally embarrassing herself in front of her friends.

Packed with black-and-white illustrations and insider secrets from the world of monster hunting, A BABYSITTER’S GUIDE TO MONSTER HUNTING is full of tricks, treats, and terrifying twists!

Weird Folk: A Suburban Horror Comedy - Feature Film...

Indie Film 'Weird Folk' Set on Election Night 2016
Crowdfunding Campaign launch May 1st 2017
Weird Folk is told in 4 chapters: A teen makes a terrifying discovery on the dark web, a clown stalks a neighborhood, a chiropractor goes through his worst nightmare, and a couple finds themselves in the cross-hairs of a killer.

The story is centered on teen Howie Oden who finds out there's a hit on his step-dad on the dark web. When Howie scours the neighborhood for him, he encounters scary clowns, bullies, strange visitors, and dead bodies.

Although Weird Folk takes place on election night 2016, it's not solely about the election and the hysteria associated with it. It's about the horror that humans can inflict on one another. It is about the ugly monster inside us all. We show all sides of the political spectrum and do not skew in any one direction. More importantly, this story is extremely entertaining and will give you some laughs and some chills. Election 2016 was an anomaly and the events that take place in this movie are as well.
