Halloween Horrors 2012

Review by Ben Pawliger and Jake Wasserman

Fright Nights 2012 is a spookified center of fun for everyone in the South Florida Area. People of all ages, from young children to older adults came out to the South Florida Fairgrounds to be spooked and horrified by zombies and monsters. Fright Nights is a large carnival with a Halloween twist. Rides, such as ferris-wheels, go-carts, spinning cradles, games, and more are planted all over the fairgrounds, as would any carnival. The Halloween twist though includes Haunted Houses, monsters strolling through the Midway, and of course, the crazy chain-saw crazy zombies. These zombies are not the typical slow walking arms out zombies, these zombies are ready to spook any guests of theirs by sneaking up behind them, ripping the loud chainsaws at their ears, feet, or wherever it is easiest to spook their new friends. The haunted houses are also a creepy attraction at the event. These 5 houses are dark traps with strange monsters poking at their prey from every direction! Everyone, from children to adults, claimed that they were scared from these houses of horror. Forget pumpkins and candy, the real spookiness and fun of Halloween is at Fright Nights in West Palm Beach, Florida.

South Florida’s Fright Night is open for business at the South Florida Fairgrounds. This year there are 5 Haunted Houses to chose from. It’s scary even walking around the grounds of Fright Nights because you never know who is going to come up and scare you!! Take friends for support…..and watch your back.

To get there: take I95 north to SOuthern Blvd. Go west to Fairgrounds Road. Make a right and go to Gate8. You can’t miss it. You can also take 441 North to Southern and make a right turn. Turn left on to Fairgrounds Road and go to gate 8.
It’s open Thursday through Saturday. Thursday until 11 and the weekends till 12.

Have a frighteningly great time. We did.

Miami’s Own Cris Cab

Cris Cab Interview by Rachel Barrick

Cris Cab, a 17 year old singer/musician from Miami, Florida is on the verge of becoming one of the next big artists in the music world. He is an extremely talented young musician with a positive, “it’s all good” attitude toward life and his music. Cris’ inspiration came to him at a very young age, as music always just came naturally to him. Since he was young, he was always surrounded with music, and it became a natural tendency of his to have music play a major role in his life. Music has always been a passion of his, and performing and producing it is all he has ever wanted to do

. Cris’ major influences in music include artists such as Bob Marley and John Mayer, along with more modern, hip-hop artists Jay-Z and Drake. His favorite genre of music is reggae, which can be heard in much of his own original music. Cris’ music is incredibly meaningful, portraying his immense talents and positive ideals, and is the type of music that can most definitely be enjoyed by everyone. Cris writes and produces his own original music, along with recording a few cover albums in order to draw in listeners and expose them to his music. His musical talents, however, are not limited to singing, playing guitar, and producing. Cris, as he put it, plays a “smorgasbord of instruments” as well. Cris’ ultimate goal as an artist is mainly to expose people to good music, and to show them what has given him his love of music and formed his passion for it. In reaching this goal, he hopes that being a musician and performing his music will be a part of his life forever. Cris begins his East Coast tour on June 7th, 2011; the same day on which his debut album, “Foreword” will be released.

Some of Cris’ songs on this album include “Good Girls” and “No Hatred”. Fans can get his music on iTunes, and can listen to it on blogs, and Facebook. Everyone can check out Cris and his music on his website CrisCab.com, his Facebook page, Cris Cab Music, or on Twitter at Cris Cab Music as well.
