Halloween is just around the corner and soon little kids across the country will be dressing up as their favorite movie characters. My little one chose to be Frankenstein's monster which should be easier than last year's werewolf. Attempts to glue hair on an excited 8 year-old's face did not go well. Currently she is reading Frankenstein for a book report due at the end of October. Seems like serendipity.

Friday nights are often "pizza night - movie night" at our home. It's always nice to curl up with my girls on the couch and watch a movie. After TLO finishes her book report we will watch one of the many versions of Frankenstein. Searching through Netflix for a version suitable for a 9 year-old I had to skip this one ...just too scary.

Dr. Frankenstein's Shutdown

David Koch as Dr. Frankenstein

Ted Cruz as Frankenstein's Monster

Louie Igohmert as himself



So I will continue to search for a kid appropriate Frankenstein movie. And while searching might add these recent sequels to my queue...

Dr. StrangeGov (or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Tea Party)
with special guest star Speaker Boehner

The Eagle has Crash Landed ...or Something
The leaf is on the Fig tree ...and the corndog is on the stick...the end times are upon us...
~ Rep. Bachmann



I was really hoping to add "Smokey and the Bandit IV: The Insurrection" in 3D, but sadly production was canceled.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
