Spooky Movies for your Spooky Evenings

T’is the season! Wait, wrong holiday.

That’s right - Halloween is approaching, and with the actual date in the middle of the week, you’ll be able to party your pointy devil ears off for two magical weekends! While doing so though, you might find it prudent to consider taking a night or two off to rest, or maybe save yourself a couple of extra bucks on another costume. Whatever the reason, I’ve got years of Halloween movie specials to help you decide what exactly you want to watch. After careful consideration, I’ve decided on a list that cannot be debated. Take a look:

Editorial by Handsome Squidward

With 175 years under its belt, Queen’s is nationally recognized for its long-lasting traditions and spirited student body. That’s great and all, but it’s time to bring back the really, really good traditions like the tricolour guillotine, segregation and more.

Ways to make social issues that don`t affect you affect you!

Oh, here I go, saving the day again. Let’s talk about a group that constantly gets undercut in society: white people. I know-I know- how often can we make fun of white people and how privileged they are??? What an easy joke to keep running-well you can shut the heck up, I’ve had a lot of people holding me down, I’ve faced a lot of Vine hate, and a lot of social disadvantages so let me have this.

The Best of Homecoming (3rd Year Edition)

Drunk 17 year old small-town Ontarians wandering aimlessly through an urban setting, disillusioned to their rapidly approaching future failures. No, this isn’t a Wednesday in London, Ontario, but Queen’s Homecoming. That’s right, a timeless tradition where we pretend to exhibit school spirit and support our sports teams but actually forgot to wear tricolour and have never been to the football game. That’s okay though, cuz you had a good time, I know since you posted on Instagram with the three colours of heart emojis. I went out too. Here are some things that happened that are of note.

Girls guide: How to make doing Meth not so basic

For this cool catchy intro I want to start with a true-to-life story (Leah you’ve been lying? Yup! Rules don’t apply to the meme-cowboys or the Vine Famous). But before I start on this crazy adventure, you have to promise me one thing-under no circumstances will you fall in love with me.

My Grades Don’t Define Me - What Defines Me is My Distaste for Olives

Guys I am sick and tired of it! What is ‘it’ you might ask? Is ‘it’ the political establishment which seeks to only benefit the rich while exploiting the poor? Is ‘it’ a nation built on the genocide of its indigenous population? Is ‘it’ the way in which our society lauds social action and yet wears clothing built by children in sweatshops?

Leah’s Ed LARPing Rebrand: Daytime TV

Hellooooo ladies! Haha I address the ladies first because as a woman it’s funny to adopt the habits of old creepy men. Some other things I like are arguing people’s ages on Omegle, being alone a lot and not understanding the right steps to make real human connection. Anyway here’s the thing guys, I know you expect me to always be delivering these activist-vegan TED-talk editorials that change your view on the world, and you expected RIGHT! Today I want to rebrand an old niche-market game to open it up to general population. LARPing, Daytime TV edition.

Things I Have Opinions About That You Better Agree With

Hey nerds - think you have a valid opinion? Think again! That’s right, everything you’ve ever believed in is a lie. Your friends, your talents, hell, even your own existence should be under question! However, since I have words on a page I am important/a corporate EngSoc puppet and therefore have REAL opinions. Here they are. If you disagree then FUCK YOU.

Walk a Mile: How I Catfished a Dude to Understand Sexism

They always say to walk a mile in another man’s shoes to truly understand him. I never got this saying, namely because of its sexist implications by not using gender neutral pronouns. That being said, as a man I know that I am unable to understand the institutional and structural implications that women face daily. Frequently I am surprised by the varied and unique struggles of womanhood. For example, I learned yesterday that they bleed from their vaginas once a month. Like what the fuck? That’s some pretty fucked up and gross shit.

The Small Soft Supple But Substantial Difference Between Fuckboy and Fucboi

Millennials. Memes. Pictures of dogs. how many? Unlimited. The world today is a crazy place haha! I mean who’s to say what the next zany trend is going to be?

But hey guys, before I get into the heavy theory of it all let’s just all take out our phones, re-download vine, open the app, and then please follow me on vine @QueenLearBBGurl - its got some pretty good vines, they’re like OK, I don’t know it’s just like me and my friends haha aghhh it’s whatever actually :P
