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 the rest of her album 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).

Non-Profit Matches Veterans with Therapy Dogs for Life Changing Support

** In celebration of "National Pets For Vets Day", we wanted to share this heart warming story about how a service dog is helping a Vet with PTSD **

Brett Simon was a veteran K9 police officer who went on to work as a contractor for the Department of the Army as a bomb dog handler. However, after serving two tours in Iraq, he returned home suffering from PTSD.

Led by his Mom, Shari Duval, who had worked for veteran's charities near their home in Jacksonville Florida, Brett's family undertook two years of research to find a solution to help Brett and others with this condition.

Their research focused on canine assistance for PTSD. Ultimately, they started a non-profit organization. K9s For Warriors, dedicated to providing service dogs to warriors suffering from post-traumatic stress and/or traumatic brain injury as a result of their military service (post 9/11).

The Lonesome Boy And The Blonde Haired Angel

When Alex Fischetti thinks back to when he was 9, he realizes how he was different from other kids. "Some people can say that you are odd," he remembers. "Some people can say that you are a little out there." Diagnosed back then with Asperger's Syndrome, a condition that made it hard for him look people in the eye and interact normally, Alex missed many parties and other social events and often felt isolated. But if you look at him today, you see a completely different person.

Now 27, Alex has learned to deal with his condition with the help of some very special people along the way. He works a regular job, has written a personal memoir of his experiences, and has now become the self-described "social butterfly" of Ridgefield, Connecticut.
