What we’re Enjoying

Jay got in the mood for this episode by watching the sequel to Hocus Pocus on Disney+. It was fun, so stay tuned. Shua has been looking for some wacky things to listen to. Or should we say ‘looney’ things to listen to. He put on a playlist of Looney Tunes classic music on Spotify that reminded him of some of the classic cartoons.

What do you do when you’re a Halloween-loving parent, but your kids are just too young to expose them to The Shining, Friday the 13th, or It? You start ‘em off light!  There are all kinds of fun Halloween movies to get your kids addicted to the thrill of the scare, but won’t cost you thousands of dollars of therapy later on.
