Howdy… It’s been a while. We really have not had much time lately to record an episode. Often one of us is out of town, acting in a play, or just too busy with life to get together to record an episode. Things really have been going pretty well…. all things considered.
My hope is to record a few new episodes soon. Hopefully the stars will align and permit us to get together to record.
Until then… remember… Life is good.
I wanted to say a big THANK YOU to Four Star Fate for allowing me to be Santa in their music video “The Season”. It was a ton of fun!

Mike Schulte – One of the organizers for the event posted this on Facebook to describe the event in detail… Un-edited:
I have rented out the Doubletree ballroom in downtown Cedar Rapids on Saturday, October 31st and am planning the biggest, baddest and best Halloween party anywhere in Iowa!
We will have live music by my band, The Pork Tornadoes along with a special Halloween-themed set featuring the amazingly-talented Alisabeth Von Presley and some other surprises. Full production and light show by our buddy Doug Johnson at RGS Productions
The atmosphere in the ballroom with be one of kind with Unique Events Of Iowa doing the decorating.
Chad Canfield of The Canman Show Studio, the Halloween mastermind behind Frightmare Forest, will by putting up an amazing haunted house display that guests will walk thru to get into the event. Circle of Ash Haunted Attraction is unfortunately not open this year and they are graciously letting us use much of their props and personnel to make this happen.
There will be Photo Booth station set up to capture your amazing costumes before the event, not to mention photographers walking around the event taking candid shots throughout the evening. These will all be available for free download.
$500- one of the biggest costume contest grand prizes around offered to the best costume!
Our friends at Need Pizzeria have teamed up with us to offer discounts before AND after the event. 15% off your tab if you dine in before the party. Then they will be hosting the official after-hours party. $1 off slices and drinks for everyone that attended the party.
The Doubletree by Hilton Cedar Rapids Convention Complex is offering nearly 25% off of hotel rooms that night for our party. $89 rooms is a steal!
Tickets are $20 and need to be purchased online at https://tikly.co/events/
I am taking a big gamble by putting on this event because of the costs associated. If we don’t get a particular amount of people to attend, I will definitely be owing some money! I was willing to take this risk though because I have faith that this will be an amazing success. Cedar Rapids is yearning for new, fun things to do. This will be the best Halloween you have ever had and we plan on making it an annual event. Please consider coming and at worst, SHARE/SHARE/SHARE this event to all your friends. It would mean the world to me. Looking forward to seeing you on Halloween night!
Special thanks to Kelli Sutterman and Hoopla for being my partner in planning all of this.Molly Schulte for putting up with my crazy ideas. Trom Schulte and Community 1st Credit Union for being our main presenting sponsor. And of course Cedar Rapids Area Association of REALTORS®, Mindye Pickerell and Fleck Sales, Von Presley Studios as our other sponsors.

This is it. The Big Announcement.
I am coming out of “Haunted Attraction Retirement” and you can experience it one NIGHT only!
Circle of Ash Haunted Attraction , my Team, and I have a big challenge ahead of us.
The challenge- Imagine EXTREME HOME MAKEOVER only done in 12 hours, in a massive ballroom, haunted house style.
My team and I have from now until 10/30/15 to plan and create items for the haunt.
On Halloween we get access to the Ballroom and have about 12 hours to transform it into a Breathtaking Haunted House.
This is going to be AMAZING! Unlike anything you have seen before!
If you are interested in joining my Team as an actor/actress, builder, tech person let me know ASAP.
We’ll need all the help we can get.
Below is the info from the Facebook Event—-
Let’s face it… Halloween is one of the best holidays of the year. Nearly everyone loves it. The weather, the costumes, the movies, the music, the scares. The one thing that always seems to be lacking is the party. The typical bar scene is the same thing every year. Half the people aren’t dressed up, disorganized costume contests, small prizes, lack of decorations, etc. Well, a group of people got together and finally decided to plan the Halloween party that you have always wanted. The party that you see in the movies and on TV shows. It’s a reality and it is happening. Hope to see you there.
