We Need More Halloween Music

Why does Halloween holiday music get the short-end of the stick?

We Need More Halloween Music

There is not nearly enough Halloween songs in existence. I can only name a few Halloween songs-Monster Mash, This Is Halloween, and Thriller by Michael Jackson-which is a stretch anyway, because it is not technically a Halloween song. There are not enough Halloween songs to fill an album.

Why does Christmas get to have all rights to the holiday music? There are countless Christmas songs and Christmas albums. There are classic Christmas albums, celebrity Christmas albums, and Christmas song compilation albums. There are stations dedicated to playing non-stop Christmas music for months.

Even Valentine's Day as a good number of songs, because basically every song is a love song. So why does Halloween have to get the short end of the stick? Who decided that Halloween does not get to have any fun and spooky holidays songs?

This is an outrage, and more people need to be as concerned as I am. We need to make progress in the business of Halloween holiday songs. We can start small, with maybe a few new Halloween-themed songs, and hopefully progress into full-blown celebrity Halloween albums. I want Halloween songs to have their own category on iTunes.

So, help me start advocating for this issue. Let's sign petitions. Let's reach out to our favorite celebrities on Twitter. Let's write a letter to the president. We need more Halloween songs!

A Tribute To The Lonely Hispanic

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I’d like to share a few thoughts about being Hispanic in a country where it’s hard to be Hispanic.

Veronika Maldonado

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.

An Atlanta Weekend

A New Yorker's quick weekend in Atlanta.


On a weekend visit to Atlanta, I had to adjust to people being personable and congenial to me. Although I had lived in the South before, I had to get reacquainted with southern hospitality due to visiting from Brooklyn. Atlanta Uber drivers are very down to earth, offer snacks, and provide great genuine conversations. The opposite is the lay of the land from Brooklyn Uber drivers. The southern hospitality is provided not only from the Uber drivers, but restaurant servers, cashiers, or random people giving suggestions. Brooklyn is a dope and unique place to live, but short on the warmth more often than not.

20 Traditional Hispanic Recipes To Feast On In Honor Of Hispanic Heritage Month

20 Traditional Hispanic Recipes To Feast On In Honor Of Hispanic Heritage Month

Like many of my wanderlust-ridden friends and family, I'll travel anywhere for the promise of good food. I once went to Thailand in pursuit of traditional massaman curry and Spain for authentic patatas bravas — neither of which let me down.

What usually ends up being the biggest letdown is coming home to miss the traditional, local cuisine. It may not have quite the same ambiance, but trying to cook authentic dishes at home can increase appreciation for the craft and culture behind them.
