Based on the best-selling books by R.L. Stine, "Goosebumps" was adapted into a television show for FoX Kids in the United States on October 27, 1995. The show ran for 4 seasons (74 episodes) and aired its last episode on November 16th, 1998. Since Sony's movie sequel "Goosebumps: HorrorLand" begins filming this month and Halloween is around the corner, this OP decided to come out of Originals retirement for this childhood classic in the month of October. Selecting ten episodes for this was rather difficult so I had to go with a combination of the classics as well as personal favorites. Grab your favorite "Goosebumps" book adaptation to throw at me and let's get into it shall we? In no particular order...
Night of the Living Dummy II
Villain: Slappy | Season 1 Episode 10 | Original Air Date: January 12, 1996
Amy Kramer's ventriloquist dummy. Dennis, keeps losing his head, literally. Her father surprises her with a new ventriloquist dummy named Slappy who she accidentally brings to life. Soon afterwards he begins framing Amy for things she didn't do but her family and friends do not believe her when she says it's her new dummy doing these things. It's up to Amy to stop Slappy and save her family before it's too late.
Pre-Teen Me Shook Rating:

Woody Allen 'sad' for Weinstein https://t.co/L8A4H7xrSD— BBC News (World) (@BBCWorld) October 15, 2017
Harvey Weinstein is pretty much solely responsible for reviving Woody Allen’s failing career after he was accused of molesting his daughter Dylan Farrow. Consequently, the BBC felt compelled to ask Woody’s opinion on the Weinstein scandal, I guess: "No one ever came to me or told me horror stories with any real seriousness. And they wouldn't, because you are not interested in it. You are interested in making your movie.” I mean, yeah, I wouldn’t entrust being sexually assaulted or harassed with an alleged pervert, but you’re not interested in it? It’s not of interest to you? Women being systematically abused isn’t of interest to an alleged predator? K! Also important to note: Mira Sorvino told Woody Allen’s son Ronan Farrow that Weinstein sexually harassed her while promoting Allen’s film “Mighty Aphrodite.” But he was only interested in making movies, so I guess he wouldn’t have cared if she confided in him.
He continues: "But you do hear a million fanciful rumours all the time. And some turn out to be true and some - many - are just stories about this actress, or that actor." Is he implying Weinstein is innocent or is he projecting himself into this story?
"The whole Harvey Weinstein thing is very sad for everybody involved. Tragic for the poor women that were involved, sad for Harvey that is life is so messed up.“ Sad! How will Harvey move on after traumatizing countless women, some of whom seem to report experiencing PTSD and lifelong trauma associated with the sex acts he forced on them.
Woody Allen also wants to warn people to be careful! “You also don't want it to lead to a witch hunt atmosphere, a Salem atmosphere, where every guy in an office who winks at a woman is suddenly having to call a lawyer to defend himself. That's not right either.” Hey moron, no one is conflating a wink with sexual assault and rape.
Predators gotta stick together!

white women really cannot be trusted tbh
Argentine football mega star Messi and wife Antonela Roccuzzo have announced they are expecting their third baby together via an Instagram post on Antonela's page captioned "family of five".
The couple, that got married last June, has two sons - Thiago who is five next month and Mateo who turned two last September.
The full review is only found in its print magazine so here's some highlights:
-- The game a spiritual successor to Super Mario 64. Expect some throwbacks.
-- Its big risks pay off handsomely.
-- Peach has a huge role in the postgame, though not how you think.
-- The game is surprisingly violent in places.
-- Fans of Breath of the Wild (another perfect 10 game from Edge) will love the influence it has on this.
Super Mario Odyssey hit shelves next Friday, October 27.

• The McVegan option is being tested in Finland only so far. Sales are from October 4th 2017 to November 21st 2017 at five locations in Tampere, Finland.
• "The first results are very promising. At the moment at least, it feels like it might be sold nationwide," said spokeswoman Heli Ryhanen.
• According to a 2009 survey, fewer than 1% of people in Finland identify as vegan.
• Making the McVegan option permanent will depend on whether sales continue after the initial curiosity.

SEVERE TRIGGER WARNING: the accounts that have been published by Russell (on the request of each author's anonymity) are graphic and upsetting.
Model Cameron Russell (who you might remember from the incredibly popular 2013 Ted Talk, "Looks Aren't Everything. Believe me, I'm a Model") is using a hashtag on her personal Instagram (#MyJobShouldNotIncludeAbuse) that has picked up significant attention in the last few days detailing sexual harassment in the fashion industry, with over 50 submissions so far. Articles have been written in TheCut, Bustle, the Telegraph and the Independent but the buzz behind the story is significantly quieter than the current focus on Harvey Weinstein.
I am hoping to signal boost the issue by posting it here. Even though I hate to add to the flood of upsetting posts. I'm also hoping it qualifies as a post in terms of celeb-status!

Bjork details Danish director's sexual harassment toward her: "He sulked and punished me" https://t.co/9e2t3RDVu5— Rolling Stone (@RollingStone) October 15, 2017
The director, not named, is presumed to be Lars von Trier. Björk starred as a daydreaming factory worker in his 2000 film, Dancer in the Dark. The film won the prestigious Palme d'Or at Cannes that year.

Despite much of the controversy surrounding Taylor, Reputation's first week sales are projected to be around 1.7m which would end up breaking her 1989 first week sales record of 1.2 million.
Look What You Made me do is currently number #1 on pop radio and still hanging in the top ten despite no actual promo or performances.
Do you think Taylor will sell 1m in a week again ONTD?
The Gronkowskis challenged A-Rod and the Sharks to a game of flip cup on Shark Tank 😂 pic.twitter.com/y1YhpnAlEn— Sports Illustrated (@SInow) October 16, 2017
• On tonight's "Shark Tank," retired baseball player and Jennifer Lopez's current boyfriend, Alex Rodriguez (ARod), made a special appearance as a celebrity guest shark.
• New Englands Patriots star Rob Gronkowski helped his brother Chris pitch his insulated 'Ice Shaker' sports bottle in the tank.
• They play flip cup with the Sharks because why not bro?
• When Chris couldn’t find what he was looking for, he started "Ice Shaker." It's a well insulated, grade stainless steel cup with a vacuum-insulated double wall. It can hold ice for 30 hours in 75 degrees without any condensation forming on the exterior of the bottle.
[Did the Sharks Invest? Spoiler...]Of course. Mark Cuban and Arod both invest in "Ice Shaker."
Because that family doesn't have a single dollar to invest in it already.
• No word yet if
let's go brocery shopping.
ONTD, do you invest your money?

The actress was accused of blaming women for being sexually harassed.

"I'm being told my N.Y. Times piece resonated with so many and I am beyond grateful for all of the feedback. I also see a bunch of people have taken my words out of the context of the Hollywood machine and twisted them to imply that God forbid I would blame a woman for her assault based on her clothing or behavior. Anyone who knows me and my feminism knows that's absurd and not at all what this piece was about. It's so sad how vicious people are being when I basically live to make things better for women. I am doing a Facebook live with the N.Y. Times Monday morning. Let's discuss it then."
Katy pulled the fans, Katie and Becky, out of the crowd and took them onstage. Then Katie (not Katy) dropped to one knee and proposed to Becky.
Then Katy (not Katie) fell on all fours from excitement as the couple got lovey-dovey.
Does this make up for her not apologizing for "Ur So Gay?"
- In an except from actress Anna Faris's book Unqualified, she discusses leaving her first husband, Ben Indra for Chris Pratt after they met on the set of Topher Grace's vanity flop Take Me Home Tonight. Confiding in a close friend of hers, he told her "If I was going to leave my husband, I had to be a surgeon with a scalpel about it. Do it immediately and effectively, he said."
- Admits she "felt like a villain", saying "I had to repeat myself a number of times before he took me at my word. 'You're just tired; you're really tired,' he responded at first. I just said: 'Nope, I'm leaving you.' "
- After dying her hair blonde, she also contemplated getting breast implants when she was dating fellow animal abuser Pratt.
- She "desperately wanted to f**k Pratt" when she first met him, but didn't actually want to go through with it until her divorce was finalized.
NAGL. I feel terrible for their son. I hope he is doing okay.

HER BODY AND OTHER PARTIES: Stories, by Carmen Maria Machado
A wife refuses her husband's entreaties to remove the green ribbon from around her neck. A woman recounts her sexual encounters as a plague slowly consumes humanity. A salesclerk in a mall makes a horrifying discovery within the seams of the store's prom dresses. One woman's surgery-induced weight loss results in an unwanted houseguest. And in the bravura novella Especially Heinous, Machado reimagines every episode of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, a show we naively assumed had shown it all, generating a phantasmagoric police procedural full of doppelgangers, ghosts, and girls with bells for eyes.
Earthy and otherworldly, antic and sexy, queer and caustic, comic and deadly serious, Her Body and Other Parties swings from horrific violence to the most exquisite sentiment.
