Hey there, Frocktalkers – Happy FRIDAY! Here’s a little interview you can read on your phone while you are stuck in traffic on the 101 on your way home from work. Our friend Rick over at Filmjackets.com interviewed me for his site, and I thought you might find it interesting, or maybe hilarious, or maybe it will make you want to punch me in the face. I don’t know. I hope you don’t want to punch me in the face, but I can’t control that. OMG, is it the weekend yet?! I am fried!! INTERVIEW HERE Enjoy, and have a great weekend, everyone!!
The costume truck at Halloween
This year, my costume selections are veering toward popular culture. I went on a MEME kick, and man there are some funny ideas out there that, if you’re hip to what’s hip, you will really love. You will not find disgusting “slutty vampire”, “naughty nurse”, or “sassy pirate” costumes in this bunch, because we costume people really don’t need to pander, do we? It’s not called “Whoreloween”; it’s HALLOWeen. Hallowed evening – the most special night of the year for costume designers. I have put together twenty-five or so costume ideas for you. I have included the original reference from pop culture or the internet for all costumes, and I have included links to sites where you can buy costume pieces to complete your look. So, without further ado, here are my 2011 Halloween ideas:

Reason number one, of course, is that Internet Explorer is not compatible with many websites, including Frocktalk. Reason number two: remember that pesky little security problem Google was having in China? Their hack attack was made possible due to a flaw in INTERNET EXPLORER. That’s right. Microsoft has issued an emergency patch for IE users, but your best bet is to STOP using IE and switch to another web browser like Firefox (free download here), Safari (free download here), or Google Chrome (free download here).
Articles about the IE weakness leading to the hack of Google in China are HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE. The patch, if you are still crazy enough to use Internet Explorer, is available HERE.
Browse safely, friends!
I posted about the Frocktalkability issues with Internet Explorer a few months back, but this is a topic that needs revisiting. Internet Explorer, while one of the world’s most widely available (meaning pre-loaded) web browsers on the market, is decidedly NOT the best. Case in point here at Frocktalk. If you are using ANY version of IE to navigate the Internet, you will not be able to see Frocktalk in all of its blazing, good-time glory. Why? Compatibility issues. Frocktalk is best viewed using Mozilla’s FIREFOX (free download here), Safari (free download here) or Google Chrome (free download here). I am going to go out on a limb, and say that once you try these other browsers, you will NEVER go back to Internet Explorer. Make a liar out of me; I dare you!!
Have a great weekend!
Greetings everyone – just wanted to let you know that we are uncovering some issues with the way to the site looks when viewed with Internet Explorer 8. Frocktalk is optimally viewed using Firefox, Safari, and Google Chrome. We are working out the kinks here to try to find a happy medium (where IE8 users can see the site as it is intended), but in the meantime, if you’d like to experience Frocktalk in all of its cinematic glory, try Firefox!
Stay tuned for the sound of dueling banjos!!
