A classic and one of my favorite shows. It still makes me laugh! Here’s the infamous Halloween Bungholo episode of MTV’s Beavis and Butthead



USA Today has two articles featured the supernatural beings.

  • The first, if you ever find yourself turned into a Vampire, Werewolf or Zombies these books might come in handy
  • And this sounds exciting – Steven King is on board for a series of comics about the evolution of vampires due out in March 2010!
