It’s Year 2 for Rosemary’s Pixie!

Published October 17, 2014 by vfdpixie

Just a smidge of my horror collection that keeps me going! And yes, I still have vhs tapes!


So it’s year 2 and I’m still here!  I may not have posted as often or reviewed as many films, books and events as I would have liked to, but I’m still here!  Have I learned any lessons?  Definitely, especially about focus and staying on track.  Nothing good comes from the wishy wash!  I realize that I thrive in a creative environment which I am not currently in, so this little blog still really helps me as an outlet.  I am still striving to be in such an environment, to better myself and to keep true to what this blog does for me which is express my love for the horror genre and all the creepy crawlies it brings.  One way I’m doing this is by once again treating myself to some unadulterated horror movie mayhem at the Toronto After Dark Film Festival, which I’ve done for 4 years now.  I’m hoping to make this an annual event, and it is a total coincidence that my anniversary falls on the start of the festival, but it is a happy one!  It reminds me that there is a place for horror, and that working hard at something you love can be fulfilling and fun at the same time.

At the start of this new year, I wondered if I should continue to blog about my favourite show, Face Off.  I wondered if anyone really cared about my opinions and recaps of this innovative special effects makeup competition, but one look at my stats changed that.  People from all over the world were reading my posts.  I realized that even in this day of high-speed internet and satellite T.V., some fans out there don’t have access to the show.  That made me want to continue with a renewed zeal, and it also keeps me connected to my makeup artist past without having to actually do makeup!

I still don’t have a ton of followers, which was never my goal, but the ones I have make me really grateful for their loyalty!  I will once again thank all my friends and family that encourage me to do my thing, my twitter and Facebook friends and followers, all the visitors to this site, the WoC writers and bloggers that inspire me, indie filmmakers who continue to think outside the box, and horror fans that keep the genre alive.  I am looking forward to another year of horror fun, films and fracas and pushing myself to keep pursuing things that I love!

Happy Second Anniversary Rosemary’s Pixie!!
