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.

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).

Blind Waiter Serves Up Diner Classics and Life Lessons

** As we wind down to the final days of this difficult year, OGTV is tipping our hat to all of the essential workers on the front lines with this uplifting story about a New Jersey man who has found a way to do this difficult job for years, even without his eyesight! **

The flickering neon sign reflects eerily off the aging, chrome exterior; a long smooth marble counter with spinning stools draws your gaze left and right as you enter; the checkered linoleum floor seeps under the rows of back-to-back leather booths enveloped by the rain streaked wrap-around windows. You may think you've entered a typical American roadside eatery, but your experience here will be anything but ordinary.

You have just stepped into the Bendix Diner, a staple in Hasbrouck Heights, New Jersey since the 1940's. It's no surprise that The Bendix can serve up a sizzling Burger with deep fried onion rings and a frothy chocolate shake. What is unique about this meal is the waiter who delivers it to your table – his name is John Diakakis, and he is blind.
