why nightmare before Christmas isn't a Halloween movie 

There are far to many people that watch "The nightmare before Christmas" on Halloween or think it counts at a Halloween movie and a Christmas movie. They only celebrate Halloween once in the movie it's it's the first like 5 minutes of the movie. The rest of the movie is them preparing/ celebrating christmas. If you watch the first 5 minutes on Halloween that's fine but everything after that is all about Christmas so how can it be a Halloween movie. I know it can feel weird to watch it on Christmas because it can be scary to kids but it only makes sense. Watch it before Halloween or after but there's no point in watching it on Halloween.

Concert at the Mutiny 

Last Saturday I went to a concert at the mutiny which might be one of my new favorite venues. Every Saturday they have karaoke night but it's not just for young people, there were people in their 60s and 70s doing songs and they had a blast with it. After the karaoke I got to hear and catch up with some of my favorite bands like the foolishly district and the smoking revolvers. The missing revolvers just released their first EP which I had to pick up. I was so surprised by the quality of the songs. It sounded so clean and some of my favorite songs by them were on it. But back to the bar, everyone was so nice there and all the people that worked there were so friendly. It didn't feel like they worked there it felt like they just wanted to be there and have a good time. Moral of the story check out the mutiny if you get the chance.

Anniversaries are extremely important whether it's one year, two years, or twenty years. Here are some tips to help you on your next anniversary. When it comes to the gift it's hard to mess up even if it seems difficult to find something. It doesn't always have to be expensive, you could go for something more creative like a collage or if you are good at drawing you could draw each other. Now if you do have the money it is always nice to revive and expensive gift but bonus point if it's meaningful. Now that last part of the planning process is the most important, what you are going to do for the day. It doesn't have to be something extravagant like writing her name in the sky at a park you rented out. It can be as simple as going out to dinner and watching a movie at home. It all depends on what you two like to do together. I hope this helps.

"Dad Fest" Review 

Over the weekend I went to "Dad fest" which was about 8 bands coming together at the levee in Chicago for a celebration of dads. My favorite of out the bands would have to be "The Footlight District" followed closely by "The 8-bit Creeps". The best thing about the venue was that they had two stages so while one band was playing the other could be setting up so there was nonstop live music. "The footlight district. and I ended up getting pizza together which was a really cool experience since I've always wanted to be friends with a band. The pizza was fine but what we really wanted was Taco Bell since I love Taco Bell and so does the whole band. We are planning on going sometime soon but we'll see.-Alex Popp
