    365 Days of Horror

    So I haven't really brought this up this year but I think it's far enough along to mention it. Since January 1st of this year I've been trying to account for one horror movie a day for the entire year. I completely stole this idea from our own DMhead who made a go at this last year. It's definitely tough and I miss a good amount of days but try to make up for it by doubling up a bunch of days in a row.

    As of right now (July 23, 2015) it has been 203 days this year and I've watched 196 horror films. So I'm behind by about 7 movies but I'm confident that I can make that up gradually.

    I know some people can do this easily but I have little precious spare time as I typically work 50-60 hours a week not to mention all the other activities I have to do as well as all the non-horror films that I watch (I still like to watch movies with my GF but there's only so much horror the poor girl can take), but it's been really fun trying.

    Anyway if anyone wants to follow my progress, they can check out this google doc that I keep track of it with. I try to watch mostly dvds and blus but I do watch a fair bit of AmazonPrime and have access to a Netflix account if anyone wants to make suggestions.

    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...it?usp=sharing

    Anyone else doing this or want to join in for the rest of the year?

    I go days without watching a horror flick and then there's that one rainy day when I watch 4 or 5 all day long. Good luck with your mission bro

    Yeah last October I cleared over 60 films and thought if I just halved that "intensity" I could make it.

    I got through 276 movies in 8 months

    http://www.upcominghorrormovies.com/...Movie-Marathon

    I may want to do this again. I also did it for flicks I have not seen before. Besides Halloween, where I watched a lot of my favorites, all those movies were unseen before I watched them. I wonder if I could accomplish this again

    EDIT: Are you rating them too? Awesome. You are definitely making me want to do this again haha. Maybe I will start on Monday. I have been way behind in horror lately. My girlfriend loves horror films and I know I can get her to watch it again.

    I'll keep up with it. When I do it again, it would be nice to watch good movies for a change. I appreciate your taste in cinema so I will definitely watch the good rated movies on that list.

    Managerial Accounting
    Computerized accounting systems (Lecture)
    Computerized accounting systems (Lab)
    Dietetics and Nutrition
    History of Civilization 2
    Business Math

    I suck with computers and I absolutely detest math, so yup this semester is going to suck........lol

    Appreciate the offer, I may just wind up taking you up on it if I have problems. Financial accounting is easy as hell as long as you know what you own, what you owe, and how to depreciate your assets. Honestly the thought of taking accounting terrified me, but its very easy. Computers are taking over just about all of it now....all you have to know now is where to plug the figures

    Damn i wish you lived closer. I used to tutor math and computers almost exclusively for 5 years.

    Anyway a year challenge sounds awesome but yeah the significant other is an issue for me since i doubt he could hang. Who knows once i settle into a 45 hour work week and start going crazy with all the free time i could try it.

    That can be troublesome. Just last night I wanted to watch The Babadook with her and she saw me opening the bluray and stopped me saying, "Wait I've heard of that...it's supposed to be scary I don't want to watch that tonight."

    So instead we watched the Grand Budapest Hotel...Babadook gets saved for another night.

    In exchange for horror in October i am giving him sci fi September. I try to tailor movies to include things i know he likes but that starts wearing thin after about a month. Maybe do it for two years and alternate days but that seems a bit tedious.

    "Fools believe bullshit without evaluation. Fools believe bullshit without reason, because they like the story or they want to fit in. Fools believe bullshit that has no scientific basis, or in some cases, directly conflicts with scientific knowledge. But foolishness can be cured. We have all been fools at one time or another, and intelligent people learn from their foolish mistakes and try not to make them again." - Dave Silverman
