Ten spooky shows for your Halloween night

Happy Halloween everyone! I’m sure most of you after a fruitful night of trick-or-treating are going to sit on the couch and watch some classy horror movies like “Pinnochio’s Revenge” or “The ABC’s of Death”, but if your interested in trying something a little different how about instead of a bunch of movies you binge watch some television.

A pink filled October

LOCK HAVEN- October provides us with a beautiful array of colors year after year as we look above to the trees. The combination shades of oranges, yellows and reds never look as beautiful as they do when they cover a mountain in the crisp fall air. However this past weekend October looked a little different at Lock Haven University.

Football wins second straight

Caleb Walton gashed the Millersville defense on a 37 yard run on Lock Haven’s third play from scrimmage. Things were looking good then. Things were looking bright. Lock Haven (2-6, 2-5 PSAC) took the ball down as far as the Millersville (0-8, 0-7 PSAC) 27 yard line, before being moved back 10 yards due to a holding penalty, and then Lock Haven was forced to punt.

Halloween superstitions explained

All Hallow’s Eve, or Halloween, was gradually integrated into American culture through Irish and Scottish immigrants’ celebrations in the 1800s. Over the past 200 years, Halloween has evolved into the costume-covered, candy-grabbin’ holiday we’ve come to know and love today.

follow-your-passion

Follow your bliss, actively

We all have interests and passions. It’s part of what makes us individuals and interesting ones at that. There is something that deep down inside you are obsessed with. Maybe obsession is too strong a word for many people, but not with me. I have a rather unhealthy obsession with Edgar Allan Poe and anyone that knows me, whether they want to or not.

Sweet sounds of ‘1989’

Sweet sounds of ‘1989’

On Oct. 27 Taylor Swift released her fifth album entitled ‘1989.’ This album is a stark contrast from her last album ‘Red,’ but just as excellent. Instead of the rollercoaster ride of emotion that ‘Red’ was ‘1989’ is a smooth transition through a relationship.

There are many people, some you may know, that put a great deal of stock into Astrology or the idea that the movements of the stars and other celestial bodies can have an influence on our daily lives.

Sexualization: Hollywood women suffer silently

Sexualization: Hollywood women suffer silently

It’s no secret that the media has always been quick to sexualize women. It’s not uncommon to see a woman stripped down in advertisements regardless of what they’re selling—everything from fast food to perfumes seem to warrant a half-naked woman. This kind of sexualization is demeaning because it’s not a woman owning her own body.
