The month of November is Thanksgiving time to our neighbours down south in the USA. This means a large turkey dinner with gravy for most households and the constant squabbling between family members. A funny person to discuss these events is American Humorist and bestselling author -Erma Bombeck. Bombeck achieved great popularity for her newspaper column that described suburban home life from the mid-1960s until the late 1990s. Her columns have been read by over 30 millions readers in 900 different newspapers across Canada and the USA. Bombeck’s columns have also appeared in magazines such as ‘Reader’s Digest’, ‘Redbook’ and ‘Good Housekeeping Magazine’. In addition to writing, Bombeck participated in ABC’s Good Morning America from 1975 until 1986. She began doing brief commentaries which were recorded at Phoenix, and eventually did both gag segments and important interviews. Futhermore, Bombeck participated in the Presidential Advisory Committee for Women which helped with the final implementation of the Equal Rights Amendment. In 1986, She was the grand marshal for the 97th Tournament of Roses Parade and the parade’s theme was ‘A Celebration of Laughter’. Bombeck uses this month’s quote to discuss the importance of gravy in her household…

“I come from a family where gravy is considered a beverage”. - Erma Bombeck

October is Halloween time and this month gives us the chance to look around various search engines in need of a scary quote. We could think of no better film to scare us with a quote than Freddy Krueger’s ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’. Freddy Krueger is a fictional character and the primary antagonist of the ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’ film series. Krueger was created by Wes Craven, and had been consistently portrayed by Robert Englund since his first appearance. In the 2010 remake, he was portrayed by Academy Award–nominee Jackie Earle Haley. Krueger is portrayed as a child killer who is eventually discovered and captured by the law, but escapes legal prosecution due to a technicality. He is hunted down by a mob of angry parents, and cornered in a boiler room where he used to take his victims. The mob douses the building with gasoline and sets it on fire, burning Krueger alive. While his physical form dies, his spirit lives on in the dreams of a group of teenagers living in his old neighborhood, who he preys on by entering their dreams and killing them. Krueger’s physical features can best be remembered by his signature clawed glove. The horror film series has gone on to make nine slasher films , various comic books and a television show (Freddy’s Nightmares) which was a horror anthology series starring Freddy Krueger as the show’s host. One, Two, Freddy’s Coming For You is a parody of the kid’s nursery rhyme,”One, Two, Buckle My Shoe”. This song is often to be Freddy Krueger’s theme song. It is sung by little children dressed in white party clothes jump-roping who are presumed to be the past victims of Freddy in his former life. Here is the quote in its entirety…

“1,2, freddys commin’ for u. 3,4, better lock ur door. 5,6, grab ur crusifix. 7,8, gonna stay up late. 9,10 never sleep again”. - A Nightmare On Elm St.

September is now officially known as ‘Cable TV Month’ and we couldn’t think of a better person to discuss campy television and trash TV as we chose American film director and screenwriter John Waters to be our quote for this month. Waters began studying film at New York University but ended up leaving and returning to his hometown of Baltimore, Maryland. Waters (along with his acting group called ‘The Dreamlanders’) would distribute trashy and campy films that often pushed the envelope of public decency and censorship. Waters would often taken an unconventional route to casting for his films as he has given starring roles to known criminals such as Patty Hearst or to adult film actresses such as Traci Lords. Waters went on to direct more mainstream flicks such as ‘Hairspray’ which was turned into a Broadway musical and then redeveloped into a successful mainstream film that made over 200 million dollars at the box office. In addition to ‘Hairspray’, Waters directed mainstream films such as ‘Serial Mom’, ‘Cry-Baby’ and ‘Pecker’. Waters is a known book collector and has a collection of over 8000 books. Furthermore, Waters creates photo-based artwork and comical fine-art collections that have appeared at the Marianne Boesky Gallery in New York and the Gagosian Gallery in Los Angeles. In 2012, Waters hitchhiked from Baltimore, Maryland to San Francisco, California and went on to write a book about his journey entitled ‘Carsick’. Even though Waters has appeared as a host on several television series, Waters is not a fan of television as a medium and has openly discussed his dislike of television sets. In this month’s quote, Waters discusses why he doesn’t like television all that much…

“Whenever it’s on it’s like having somebody in my house that I want to get rid of and they won’t leave. I hate the sound of it. All that noise and light coming from a piece of furniture”. - John Waters
