…through Blatty’s Legion, so now I’m on to this:

"Halloween: From Pagan Ritual to Party Night" by Nicholas Rogers.

Figured it was appropriate for the season.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year,

So good, and barely any exclamation points.

Legion by William Peter Blatty, which is a brillion times better than this turd.

Legion is the official sequel to Blatty’s The Exorcist, and the book was later adapted to become the third film in the series. (Exorcist II barely counts as a film, let alone a sequel… trust me.)

Both The Exorcist and The Exorcist III hold up as genuinely terrifying films, but this book is an absolutely fantastic read all on its own. Pick up a copy and give it a read if you’re looking to get into the Halloween spirit a little early this year.

This more than makes up for Jay! Anson!,

Tim Cigelske's new book "Analytics to Action: A Guide to Social Media Measurement."

…his new book Analytics to Action: A Guide to Social Media Measurement.

The description:

“Analytics to Action is a guidebook for creating a social media measurement system. Topics include selecting relevant metrics, identifying target audience, deciding which social networks to engage, optimizing posts for success, creating a management system, and predicting successful content. Technology will change, but your ability to move from analytics to action will endure.”

So if you’re looking to expand your social media reach (or if you’re looking for something more than my approach to social media, which is to curse and offend as much as possible), pick up your copy of Tim’s book here.

Gotta get our copy signed,

Grey's first passport stamp.

Itching for international,

Our good friend Marla gave Grey this handmade wooden book as a baby gift.

Super cool gift from Aunt Mars!

It even has Grey’s name pressed into the cover.

Dang! Now I can't steal it!

Inside are plastic sheets that hold 4″ x 6″ postcards.

One postcard and counting!

We’d now like to fill this book up with postcards from friends and family.

So the next time you travel—or even if you’re not traveling and just want to send Grey a quick hello—send a postcard to:

Grey Danger Shady
9107 Woodland Drive
Hickory Hills, IL
60457

And just so you know, postcard stamps are now 35 cents.

Holy crap! When did that happen?

Everybody loves getting mail,

His speech is worth a thousand words.

…including the balls on Donald Trump to call anything weird or strange, but I especially love the woman in the top right corner who felt compelled to read a book during his speech.

She’s probably just hiding her face in shame,

BIG KID'S BOOK!

She can read it, too,

…for these two magnets…

Magnets! From Bill and Sarah!

…and this book and sketchbook!

Sketchbook and book! From Bill and Sarah!

The sketchpad speaks the truth,

…for this copy of Rolly Crump’s It’s Kind Of A Cute Story

"It's Kind Of A Cute Story" by Rolly Crump!

…which was signed by Rolly himself (and co-author Jeff Heimbuch)!

Signed by Rolly!

As if that weren’t enough, they also got me this mustachioed skull bottle opener!

To open beer with! BEER!

Thanks, guys! Youse the best!

I’m sensing a theme,
