Shopping In A Small Town

Shopping in a small town is nothing like doing so in even an average to smallish city.  In the city you are much more likely to have different stores for every type of thing that you buy.  You’ll go to one place for food, another for clothes, a third for housewares and still a fourth for auto parts and so on.

Here in the small town it’s usually quite a bit different.  When I go shopping for food and remember that I need to get a new pair of jeans or new footwear, the odds are good that I can do all of these at the same store.  In fact, I can even get ATV Accessories at the same place I go for a quick take out meal of double cheeseburgers when ATV’s are in season.  Another store combines the sale of things like washing machines, driers and refrigerators with everything you would find in a radio shack.  It’s an odd combination but it works just the same.

The Address Label Mystery

Over the nearly two years since my wife died I’ve been slowly going through things and deciding what to keep, what to set aside for family members and what to just plain throw away.  Something that I have found a lot of in this time is address labels.  Those little personalized stickers that save you the trouble of having to put in the return address on envelopes and packages.  They’re a little thing but I have found them to be SO handy that I just couldn’t get rid of them.

Some of them date back almost seven or eight years.  She used to spend a lot of time online looking for freebies of various kinds and one of the things she found was these address labels.  Ever since then another bunch of them would arrive in the mail every six months to a year or so.  I don’t know for sure how many there are in the house but I wouldn’t be surprised if the number was somewhere close to a thousand.

I’ve hesitated to throw them out because, like I said, they’re so handy.  Also because I have yet to find out where I could get some of these freebies sent to me with MY name on them instead of hers.  Someday I’m going to have to take a day and actually do some serious looking to see if I can find ’em.

The Next Big Horror Movie

Is not one that will come from the usual sources like Rob Zombie.  It’s not going to be another mindless Michael Myers or Jason wannabe, aimlessly hacking away at brain dead (and very promiscuous) teens.

Instead, I believe that it’s going to be something that is based on a movie trailer style video that was recently featured on an episode of Watching Bad Videos (so you don’t have to), a video series on youtube that works to find and spotlight some of the relatively few actual GOOD videos in the ocean of crap that is uploaded to youtube every day.

New Halloween Movie Trailer“, created by youtube personality HamEntertainment is about a serial killer that’s out for revenge over his having spent ten years in jail.  Using a variety of weapons he leaves a bloody trail of bodies in his quest.

Considering that this was made by a guy with a camcorder and some family and friends I think that he’s done remarkably well and given the encouragement to go ahead with it, he’s got the potential to make a really good low budget horror movie that people will be remembering for years.

Don’t just take my word for it, check out the video below and if you like it, be sure to click here and subscribe to HamEntertainment’s youtube channel and let him know that you agree this movie needs to be made.

Churches In Nutjob Hills

While it is true that Nutjob Hills does in fact have much more than it’s fair share of oddballs, weirdos, and outright whackjobs, there are plenty of people and other things in this “community of the unique” that are perfectly normal (at least on the surface).

For example, most people wouldn’t consider the church of the Holy Cheese Burrito to be anything even resembling normal, just a couple blocks down the road from it is the First Baptist Church.  It looks just like any of tens of thousands of such churches across America, The pastor preaches sermons that are themed very much along the lines of classic Baptist sermons that people have come to expect over the last hundred years or more.  They hold baptism ceremonies and have a tight focus on the salvation message.

They’ve even got an active missions program that lately has been rearranging it’s focus on reaching the muslim populations of the world with the Gospel.  They’re looking at some level of partnering with Persian Ministries, an organization that for some time has specialized in that very type of outreach.  It’s called persian because most of what we now know of as Iran and Iraq were once part of ancient Persia and those countries are home to millions of muslims that they’re trying to reach.

Of course, the church is also very active in local affairs as well, not only does part of their outreach program focus on the church of the Holy Cheese Burrito and it’s followers, they’ve got a first rate Sunday School course as well.

The only thing that sets it apart as being clearly based in Nutjob Hills is their dress code for members attending the three times a week formal meetings requires them to have an unwrapped sandwich and a opened non-carbonated beverage in a pocket or purse when they arrive at the meeting.

I think it’s got something to do with the three to four hour services but I’m not 100% certain.
