News and Reviews for Friday October 31st 2014


Hey it’s Halloween here, and of course it’s going to be cold tonight for the kids to go out, not that it matters much, trick or treating is going away slowly as I see less and less houses handing out candy each year. I think last year is was about one in every twenty houses giving out candy, which is amazing, you can go whole blocks now without someone giving anything out. I remember when I was a kid it was almost every house giving out candy, times have changed I guess.

Yes I haven’t updated here in a long time, I’ve been really busy, my other site at TestFreaks blog has closed and I needed to create a new site to host all of the six years of content. It’s done for the most part, just a few minor tweak here and there but you can visit at to see the new site.

Anyway, it’s time for the news from around the world…
