Another week and once again, this is the only new post. Maybe after November 3rd...
I love October. I feel it's the prettiest month, starting with changing leaves and ending with pumpkins. Not only is it my birth month (Libras rule!), it's also the month of Halloween, so let's get scary.
I don't think I've ever featured Monstrum before. This series from PBS puts forward the myths and urban legends behind the monsters we all know and love. Hosted by the enjoyable Dr. Emily Zarka, the series dives deep in to all time classic monsters, urban legends and even modern monsters.
Zarka's love of the subject matter, and her intelligent and well researched notes, make this show addictive. I highly recommend going through her entire series on You Tube.
Tonight, behold the origin of the zombie, which interestingly enough is not so much monster, but more religion based.
