I'm reposting this picture from the 2011 ZomBcon for a couple reasons:

A) Jovanka Vuckovic rules.
B) The New Jersey Devils beat the Florida Panthers in the first game of their playoff series today.

Shouldn't that be good enough? Let's ignore that my moobs (that's man-boobs) are huge, and accept eh fact that this is a photo of two awesome people.

But the real reason I posted this was to remind myself that there is shit that needs to be done. My wife will be out of town for a few days, helping kids learn about journalism (she's awesome, too, although not in this photo). I don't have as much homework this weekend as I have the last three weeks, so that means I can get some stuff done.

On tap:

Right now, I'm watching "Jason Goes to Hell," on Netflix. Then I'm going to sleep for a while before my wife gets home.

Tomorrow after work, I'm going to "The Cabin in the Woods," the long-awaited Joss Whedon horror movie. I'll let you know how it is right away.

Here's a trailer.

Sunday we'll talk about the recent World Horror Convention and the Bram Stoker Awards. I might also get around to discussing "The Hunger Games" and its place in the canon of post-apocalyptic deathgames literature/cinema.

I'm designating Monday as Horror Poetry Day. I have to attend a poetry reading for one of my classes, so poetry is on my brain now. Let me know what your favorite horror poems are and we'll talk about them. Or if you are poet with a taste for the macabre, send me something and we'll share it with the masses.

Tuesday might be the day I finally watch "The Human Centipede" and its sequel. Both films are available on Netflix and there won't be the chance that my wife will accidentally come home early and get grossed out.

Wednesday and Thursday I have class and work, so you'll get nothing from me then. You may not get anything else out of me until later in the month when "The Raven" starring John Cusack is released.

 So there you have it. A busy weekend planned. I'm serious about those poems. Start sending them now.
