duckman posterIf you are reading the headline, then you know that it’s absolutely true that my old radio show from my days at Bridgewater State University is coming back for one night only. That is not a mistake because every year, the college holds it’s annual Alumni Takeover during the school’s Homecoming weekend which allows some old alums to come back and host a show for an hour or so. For the last three years, I have had some fun wracking my brain to come up with a playlist that I thought you would enjoy as well, but this year it’s going to change. I think every year, I am going to pick a theme and I am just going to run with it. This year, I have something special planned out for you guys, but you’ll have to wait and just wonder exactly what Pedal To The Metal Fest is all about. I do not have the exact day and time I am going to be on, but you should know that Alumni Takeover weekend is October 12TH and 13TH. Stay tuned here because as soon as I find out what time I’ll be on, I will let you guys know here and on the Facebook page.

moshpits promo posterI just wanted to take the time to write all the individuals no matter where in the world you are an update as to what is going on at the moment. There has not been a lot of posts on the site as of late besides the Album Of The Week posts and there is sort of a reason for that. Sometimes there is a bit in your life when it finally catches up to you and you find yourself strapped for time and energy because you are dealing with what life gives you. I am hoping that I am going to be able to start doing more with the site very soon like bringing back some of my favorite segments like Cheeseball Cinema, Tuesday Night Fights, as well as some new segments for the blog like a Podcast that I will post on the site. I have been working on several ideas for a podcast for a very long time and I am hoping that I finally have the content set in place. Plus, Eddie’s 31 Days of Halloween returns for the seventh year and I am excited for what we have for you this year. I have a lot of ideas and hopefully soon, I’ll be finished with the comic book challenge that I am doing because I am honestly over it already. So, I say just stay tuned here for more as I am looking forward to producing more content for you guys.

2017-headerFrom day one, I stated that this tournament has always been about the fans voting for their favorite bands and that without the help of the bands sharing the posts there would be no tournament. With that being said, I wanted to say congratulations to Queensrÿche and their fanbase on being the 2017 Pedal To The Metal Champions. They brought the title back to the Dio division where it had been twice before and they are also the first band to defeat a Chuck Schuldiner division band who dominated the last two years. I was going to initiate the mercy rule after about two days of voting, but the truth is that I didn’t have internet access for three days so I let it keep going. The cool fact about it is that the band won by the highest margin ever in the tournament’s history. The band won the tournament by a whopping 1,553 votes which shatters the previous margin which was 285 votes. So, if you are a Queensrÿche fan then you deserve a pat on the back for not listening to the haters and showing your allegiance because this is what the tournament is all about. I want to also take the time to thank Queensrÿche and any of the other bands that shared the links because again without you this tournament would not be possible. I am not 100% sure if the tournament is going to come back next year, but if it does then Queensrÿche fans, it’s time to take hold of the flame and build an Empire by voting them to the finals again. We’ll see you all next year and show some love by liking my Facebook page here.

I like to update you guys on just about everything that goes on here at Moshpits and Movies. For the fifth year in a row, we are observing the great holiday of Halloween by once again dedicating the whole month to the love of the holiday. Every post is going to be Halloween related which means there will be no Ass Whoopin Wednesdays until November and no Cheeseball Cinema until then as well. What returns is Eddie’s 31 Days Of Halloween which is a movie review of a horror film everyday for the whole month. The single of the week and the music video of the week posts will also be dedicated to that, but I am also going to be giving you one regular post as well since we are doing an award at the end of the year for those two categories. After the month is over, everything will go back to normal so I’ll will see all you Halloween fans in October.

Update Concept.

So, I don’t know if you have noticed, but there have been some changes to the blog lately. Besides trying to keep up with my 365 movies in 365 days challenge (click here to see that), I have added a new blog piece and have neglected some over some time now. The new blog piece I added is Mashup Of The Week which is basically a piece that I use to do on my old blog because I love mashups. Now, I have neglected a couple of different pieces like Ass Whoopin Wednesday and Tuesday Stand Up. Tuesday Stand Up I stopped doing only because of the challenge and the time that that blog consumes. It was becoming too much to try and do both, but I am aiming for that piece to return by late May. Patton Oswalt just came out with a new special and Iliza Shlesinger has one coming out soon so I want to cover those. Ass Whoopin Wednesday stopped because of certain movie opportunities that have come up. So, I am planning to have that return by the beginning of May because there are some cool action flicks I want to watch that have become available. We also just restarted Cheeseball Cinema a couple of weeks ago and we look forward to continuing doing that as well. That is basically the skinny on that and if there are anymore updates, I will be sure to let you guys know soon.

Last year I posted an article about one of my biggest celebrity crushes besides Danielle Fishel and of course I am talking about Maitland Ward. Last year, she posted some amazing pictures of herself in the holiday spirit with some amazing attire. Well, she’s up to it once more as she once again gets in the holiday spirit with some nice pics. She took to her Snapchat account (maitlandward if you want to follow her) and she posted those amazing pics that I have provided for you today. So, check them out and enjoy!!!

We here at Moshpits And Movies are huge fans of the beautiful Maitland Ward who at one time was Rachel on one of our favorite shows in Boy Meets World. Now Maitland is tearing up the scene whether it be with her amazing costumes for Cosplay or on social media like Snapchat. This time she gets in the fall/October spirit with some retty cool pics that we have right now for you guys below. With one of her getups that you’ll see below, if there was a contest for Miss Fall, she would definitely get it in my book. So, follow her on snapchat (maitlandward) and check out the pics below:
