[HBA-MEMBERS] Please put all your upcoming events here...
Let everyone know what you are doing this week


So, we thought we would open up to the alliance to members who wanted to contribute to the "HBA" for adding content or help giving suggestions to the improvement.

What are you thinking about?
What would you like to see?
What would you do?
Would you like to be a HBA Staff?
Why is it that we have 500+ members and a average of 20 comments a week?

Sorry the last one was mine, where are you all... should we be strictly a post of members without all the updates and other things?

Does It...

A lot of life is dealing with your curse, dealing with the cards you were given that aren't so nice. Does it make you into a monster, or can you temper it in some way, or accept it and go in some other direction?
-Wes Craven

Devours in Secret...

Obscenity, which is ever blasphemy against the divine beauty in life, is a monster for which the corruption of society forever brings forth new food, which it devours in secret.
-Percy Bysshe Shelley

No Monster...

Nothing is poetical if plain daylight is not poetical; and no monster should amaze us if the normal man does not amaze.
-Gilbert K. Chesterton

Bring the Monster

My most important task must be an attempt to bring the monster under democratic direction and control.
-Elliot Richardson

Almighty Goodness

May the same Almighty Goodness banish the accursed monster, war, from all lands, with her hated associates, rapine and insatiable ambition!
-Daniel Boone

Devours Everything

Marriage must incessantly contend with a monster that devours everything: familiarity.
-Honore de Balzac

Restrained Power...

Marching thus at night, a battalion is doubly impressive. The silent monster is full of restrained power; resolute in its onward sweep, impervious to danger, it looks a menacing engine of destruction, steady to its goal, and certain of its mission.
-Patrick MacGill

Man as an individual is a genius. But men in the mass form the headless monster, a great, brutish idiot that goes where prodded.
-Charlie Chaplin

It's not a monster movie. It's a supernatural thriller.
-Ed Wood
It wasn't the greatest script in the world, but not many people can say they've played a wicked king in a swashbuckling Arthurian special-effects monster movie.
-David Thewlis
It is conventional to call "monster" any blending of dissonant elements. I call "monster" every original inexhaustible beauty.
-Alfred Jarry
In this business, until you're known as a monster you're not a star.
-Bette Davis

I Need Gore Help...

I have noticed that it takes some extra time to load this main page, due to the HBA Member List... Does anyone have any suggestions on how to move our list of members to it's own page or something that might make it load faster?

I have thought of splitting it into two list on either side of the blog, like a A - M, N - Z... though I don't think that is going to change the load time?

Thanks for any and all help!
Jeremy [iZombie]
HBA Staffer
In all known time there has never been a greater monster or miracle than the human being.
-Bryant H. McGill

Making Some Changes...

Just Making some changes.... let me know what you think?
I'm just a bleeping maniac in straight clothing. There's no reason to dress my monster up.
-Glenn Frey
I'm glad I brought this course, this monster, to its knees.
-Ben Hogan
I will always vote what I have promised, and always vote the Constitution, as well as I will not vote for one single penny that isn't paid for, because debt is the monster, debt is what's going to eat us up and that is why our economy is on the brink.
-Ron Paul
I was watching Monster's Ball, which is a fabulous movie. It's just a little gem: beautifully shot, and shot in a way I never would have done. It made me feel very old, really, because it wasn't eccentric for its own sake, it was just very original.
-Adrian Lyne
I wanted to make a human monster. His name is Coffin Baby. The idea is based on a group of people from Pasadena whose names I can't mention. His mother died and during the funeral, this baby came out of her in the coffin.
-Tobe Hooper
I thought Godzilla was a mess, the monster had no character and the humans didn't either. They forgot to make the movie that went along with all these wonderful effects.
-George A. Romero
