Watch this:

ibtimes

Could there be a better tv premier for this month? Halloween is one day, but that doesn't mean we have to wait until the 31st to start celebrating--September hadn't even ended before fans were teased with these short trailers and this longer one. Get your spook on with the latest season, Coven.

Go see:

Big Fish on Broadway, premiering Oct 6.

Buffett World

For those of you who really don't want to get the pants scare off yourselves, I recommend Big Fish. The hit film starring Ewan McGregor is taking the stage this October in musical form starring Norbert Leo Butz. Those who love this story will surely be delighted with yet another adaptation of the whimsical tale. Tickets start at $49. Get them before they swim away! ... get it? Eh? Ehhhh?

Carrie, in theaters Oct. 18.

Via

Okay back to scary. You've got to check out the remake of the Stephen King-inspired classic, starring Chloë Grace Moretz, and Julianne Moore. Personally, I'd watch anything if it had either of these actresses in it. Moretz proved her horror chops in Let Me In, the American remake of Let the Right One In (also an awesome flick), so she's probably got what it takes to pull off a good Carrie. Not to mention, now that the future has arrived, so to speak, the special effects are sure to out-wow their predecessors in the original.

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon

Goodreads

It came out in 2004, but if you haven't read it, you should. The Boston Globe wasn't kidding when they said this book was "wonderfully intelligent." With every good book, readers leave the last page having gained something, whether it's the thrill of a gripping story, or the borrowed perspective from someone we might not have ever met. Curious Incident has both and then some. The story of a brilliant young boy with Asperger's Syndrome trying to solve the mystery of a murdered neighborhood dog will leave you refreshed, entertained, and enlightened. Check out my full review here.

Listen to her:

Jillette Johnson

An up and coming star with a killer track on her first album, Water in a Whale, that will probably become this generation's pop anthem of overcoming obstacles, adversity, struggle or what have you. Take a listen and just try to not want to kick some ass afterward.

Check out her music here.

CORRECTION: An earlier version of this post said the main character in The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time has autism. While that isn't necessarily false, the clarification must be made that Christopher has Asperger's Syndrome, an autism spectrum disorder (ASD).

Rescue, Transform, Share: How an Ohio Soup Shack Is Saving Lives

"It really does take a village to help people," says Sandra Lettie, a volunteer with La Soupe in Cincinnati, Ohio. La Soupe is helping to build and activate just such a "village" of compassionate people from the local area around the goal of producing food from discarded produce and providing it to families in need.

According to La Soupe's CEO, Suzy DeYoung, the organization's central mission is to "rescue, transform, and share." First, volunteers with La Soupe visit grocery stores and farms to pick up produce that was going to be discarded and "rescue" it for use in the soups that the team creates. That produce is then "transformed" into healthy, delicious food by the chefs at La Soupe. Finally, the food is "shared" with those in the local community who need it.

Meet Netta Jenkins! - Netta, D.I. (E1)

** OGTV celebrates MLK Day with this inspiring story of a young woman addressing Diversity and Inclusion in the workplace. **

"Every single person feels a sense of exclusion throughout their life."

Even as a kid, this observation struck Netta Jenkins as a universal truth. As the newly elected president of her freshman class in Johnston High School in Rhode Island, she knew she had found a core emotional theme that any student could relate to. Netta then rallied students and teachers to discuss and address their feelings of exclusion, and together they were able to make meaningful changes in the day to day life at their school.

Boston’s North End Institution That Treats You Like Family – Polcari’s Coffee

** In recognition of National and International Coffee Day, we would like to share a story of one of our favorite local businesses that have been boosting up residents in the North End of Boston with their coffee blends for almost a century! **

This Little Italy neighborhood in the North End of Boston is dotted with stores from an earlier, simpler time that have a genuine, authentic feel. Bobby Eustace, the owner of one such store, relishes the enjoyment he sees in the eyes of his customers as they take in what he calls the "orderly disarray" of his shop where you can find rare spices, deli meats, candy, pasta, and a wide selection of coffees, their specialty. When you cross the threshold and take a deep breath of the unique mix of aromas, you know you have arrived at Polcari's Coffee.
