The Conjuring has a trailer. Creepy creepy follows.

I was one of the people who viewed Saw well after it came out. I thought it was a decent film but did not live up to the sky-high expectations created by word of mouth.  So when, Insidious was released I waited again for home viewing and absolutely loved the first half of the movie. Then it totally fell apart in to a stinkfest. It broke a lot of the genre rules and was genuinely suspenseful. It didn’t fall prey to the easy scare tactics most horror movies do now. Well, here is another film by James Wan and from this two-minute build it could top Insidious for suspense. Just stick with it until the end. It is a rare thing seeing a preview plot along so slow and that is why this is so enjoyable.  hopefully this pans out and doesn’t victim to the same issues as Insidious.

Based on a true story, “The Conjuring” tells the horrifying tale of how renowned paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren were called upon to help a family terrorized by a dark presence in a secluded farmhouse. Forced to confront a powerful demonic entity, the Warrens find themselves caught in the most terrifying case of their lives.

56 Days of WrestleMania – WrestleMania VI’s Best Matches: Results

In a shocker to no one, the match voted best at WrestleMania VI was the legendary babyface vs. babyface, champion vs. champion, title for title match between Hulk Hogan and the Ultimate Warrior. The fact that these two clods could execute such a compelling match is a testament to 30 minutes of focus on your craft and about 60 days of hard work from Pat Patterson. The result is above, as is the video of the second runner-up, Dusty Rhodes & Sapphire (who damn sure weighs 2-and-a-half) vs. Randy Savage & Sensational Queen Sherri. It’s harmless fun!

#SippyTimeBeer Review – Otto’s Pub & Brewery

Ottos Beers

When I went back to Altoona, PA for my father’s 70th birthday party, I wanted to snag some beers that I couldn’t get here in Columbus. The task proved tougher than I thought. Yuengling made the trip across the border a bit over a year ago. I went to the best place fro selection in town, the Brew Zoo, but many of their offerings were ones that I could get here like Victory and Stoudt’s.

Mount Nittany American Pale Ale – This beer was the first one that I tried. I think it was a good place to start because out of the four beers, this one was the worst. I have a fondness for pale ales because of drinking entirely too much Rolling Rock when I was younger. This one was nondescript at best.

Red Mo American Red Ale – Beer number two went down better. It was closer to Killian’s than anything else I can think of. It was a good solid ale that did the trick.

Slab Cabin India Pale Ale – I’m starting to think I like IPAs more than I expected. This one was hopped perfectly in my opinion. It was definitely more hoppy than your either of the other four beers in this quartet.

Apricot Wheat – Holy apricot taste, Batman. This one to me delivered in the taste department even if you don’t like this type of beer. It had the crispness I associate with wheat beers and obviously apricot. I don’t generally like these types of beers but they’re good to have every now and again. Maybe I’ll hold out until the summer when it’s more appropriate.

The bad part of this review is that my friend Steve in Altoona is a huge Black Mo Stout fan. He says that it’s Otto’s best beer. They doesn’t sell it outside of their stores because they can’t figure out the correct mix to put in a widget ala Guinness to make it taste the way they want it to. Looks like I’ll have to make a trip up to State College the next time I go back to the parent’s place. -Kevin
