“This is Halloween, this is Halloween, pumpkins scream in the dead of night.” sing the mummies, skeletons and fellow monsters in the world of Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas. After watching the film for the first time, I can’t tell where the confusion lies - it is clearly a Halloween movie, not a Christmas one. The Nightmare Before Christmas follows Jack Skellington, Pumpkin King of Halloween Town, who has grown tired of frightening “the real world” with the same old tricks. When he stumbles upon Christmas Town, he attempts to kidnap Santa Claus and merge the two towns under his rule. I wanted to write this for you to clear the air - The Nightmare Before Christmas *is* a Halloween movie and here are five reasons why:

The moment I knew there was a museum dedicated to taking selfies with friends, I wanted to get a group of my own friends together and go to SelfieWRLD Schaumburg and make a day of it. Although I didn’t expect to make a trip to Chicago and back in a day, it was worth every twist in the plan—which included forgetting about the time change and spontaneously stopping at “The Bean” in Millenium Park. After that, driving for nine hours roundtrip, getting rained on and almost crashing three times in Chicago traffic, we finally made it to SelfieWRLD Schaumburg.
When you think of October, what pops into your mind? Is it candy, scary movies, or yellow leaves? For me, October is based around costumes and fun music that inspires my creative side. Last October, during quarantine, I was scrolling through YouTube searching for some music videos to bring me out of the complete boredom of sitting indoors all day. After sifting through indie bands, dance collaborations, 70s hair bands, and 90s hip-hop, I finally landed on “Desco” by Queen Bee. Queen Bee, also known as Ziyoou-vachi, utilizes bright colors, creative themes and costumes, octave changes, and diverse discography completely enraptured me. Recently, I was once again scrolling through YouTube to find the best playlist. Half paying attention to homework, while also trying to find something unique to dress up as on Halloween, I once more came across Queen Bee.

The reign of Michael Myers has been ongoing for more than 40 years now in the classic Halloween movies, featuring Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode, and now Michael has once again come home to Haddonfield, Illinois to wreak vengeful havoc. It takes not even two minutes for the dead bodies to start piling up and to see Michael’s characteristically slow-paced walk carry him across the screen in his mask, although it has been terribly damaged. Just as early as characters begin to die, the audience is reunited with previous victims of Michael's such as: Tommy Doyle and Lindsey Wallace (played by her original actress), the little boy and girl Laurie babysat in the first movie, and a few other key characters from the past.

Who would beat who in a fight? Would Superman beat Batman? Would my dad beat your dad? A lot of these questions will never be answered (except my dad would totally beat your dad for sure). The point is, these questions that turn into full-blown arguments exist across pop culture, and one group of people who champion their icons more than most are horror fans. Now you have the chance to help decide who would win in a fight in the metaphorical boxing ring. Your votes directly relate to who moves on in the bracket, but I took the liberty of making this list for you so that your support is, at the very least, educated.

Homecoming 2021 had its annual Talent Search competition on Oct. 19. Ball State students and Muncie community members sang, danced, and performed music in hopes to be the overall winner.
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings was not predicted to be a box office hit in the wake of movies releasing simultaneously in theaters and onto streaming services. Furthermore, it features a lesser-known Marvel protagonist that had a lot of people doubting the movie’s potential. Despite this speculation, Shang-Chi was a smash hit. Bringing in $94 million over Labor Day weekend, it was even breaking Marvel records. There could be a great deal of reasons for its success, but taking into account the fact that nearly 60 percent of the world is Asian and this is the first Marvel film to boast a cast that is as high as 98 percent Asian, that is a win for representation. The numbers in the United States were boosted in cities with a larger Asian population such as San Francisco and New York City. It has grossed over $257 million despite not being released in China, where Simu Liu is from.
