If you're looking to spend a quiet and scary Halloween at home, Alice Coopersuggests you watch one or all of the following movies and TV shows. Here are his Top 10 choices for the best and scariest: 1)Salem's Lot - "It just accidentally became one of the scariest vampire movies of all time. The book was scary enough, but the movie, that might be the best Stephen King adaptation. The character, Barlow, the vampire, was by far the scariest vampire of all time. When he shows up, it's the full screen of his face, and it's the most evil face I've ever seen in my life. It literally took my breath away." 2)Ghost Hunters - "I watch Ghost Hunters every night. Here I am -- a 65-year-old guy -- and I'm sitting in my house in Phoenix, and of course it comes on late at night. Our kids are gone, they all live in their own houses now, so we're in this big hacienda in Arizona. My wife goes to sleep early, so she's on the other end of the house. After watching Ghost Hunters, I have to walk all the way through this dark house to the other end, and every other little noise, of course, is something that makes you go, 'What was that?' For some reason, that TV show gets me... It's not like Nightmare on Elm Street or 'Jason' -- this stuff is real stuff." 3)Insidious: Chapter Two - "If you want to get close to your girlfriend or boyfriend, go and see this, because they'll be grabbing onto you and holding onto you tight!" 4)Suspiria 5)American Horror Story: Coven 6)Welcome to My Nightmare 7)The Evil Dead 8)Ghost Adventures 9)Carnival of Souls 10)Frankenstein's Army
Cooper will be celebrating Halloween on stage in Montgomery, Alabama.

The tributes keep pouring in for Lou Reed, who died Sunday from liver disease at the age of 71. Pete Townshend: "I’d been thinking about him after meeting Jean Michel Jarre last Saturday. He is a friend of Lou and Laurie Anderson. My heart goes out to Laurie whom I met briefly when Lou played with me at my girlfriend Rachel Fuller’s ATTIC JAM at Joe’s Pub in New York City. Lou seemed to have fun that night, and it was wonderful and easy for me to perform with this clear-sighted musician who I had expected to be so difficult." John Cale, Reed's bandmate in the Velvet Underground: "The news I feared the most, pales in comparison to the lump in my throat and the hollow in my stomach. Two kids have a chance meeting and 47 years later we fight and love the same way — losing either one is incomprehensible. No replacement value, no digital or virtual fill ... broken now, for all time. Unlike so many with similar stories -- we have the best of our fury laid out on vinyl, for the world to catch a glimpse. The laughs we shared just a few weeks ago, will forever remind me of all that was good between us." Joe Elliott of Def Leppard: "Lou Reed has been in my DNA since the Transformer album back in 1972. Def Leppard has borrowed lyrics and his image in the past and I'm proud to admit that. He was a maverick who went his own way with little regard to current trends. You have to admire an artist like that. Rest in peace Mr. Awkward." David Bowie, who produced Reed's Transformer album: "He was a master." Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine: "My intro to Lou Reed/Velvet Underground was Jane's Addiction cover of 'Rock n Roll'. He was a singular, unique talent." British author Salman Rushdie: "My friend Lou Reed came to the end of his song. So very sad. But hey, Lou, you'll always take a walk on the wild side. Always a perfect day." Whoopi Goldberg: "Lou was one of a kind and this colored girl still says dededede..." Patti Smith: "I made it my business to study him. His process completely spoke to me, the process of merging poetry with these surf rhythms, this pulsing loop... So many of us have benefited from the work he has done. We all owe him a debt. Most of us that owe a debt are not very happy to own up to it. Sometimes you like to imagine that you did everything on your own. But I think with Lou that everyone will stand in line to say thank you, in their own way." Tommy Shaw of Styx tells us that on Sunday night during their show in Lewiston, Idaho they, "Winged a smokey acoustic version of 'Walk on the Wild Side' with the crowd softly singing the do-do-do parts at the end, rising up gospel style then back down low for one last refrain and do-do-do's. It was magical! I live for moments like that, that just happen. Go Lou!"
And Pearl Jam did "Waiting for the Man" in Reed's honor Sunday night at their show in Baltimore.
A Kurt Cobain interview from 1993 has been animated by PBS.
The public broadcaster's web series Blank on Blank takes an interview with writer Jon Savage and sets it to some pen-and-ink visuals. In the recording, Cobain talks about his parents' divorce, punk rock and the stomach pains that bothered him for much of his life.
When Savage asked if Cobain had problems with people thinking he was gay in high school, the Nirvana frontman responds, "Yeah. I even thought that I was gay. I thought that might be the solution to my problem. Although I never experimented with it, I had a gay friend, and then my mother wouldn't allow me to be friends with him anymore because...well, she's homophobic. It was real devastating because finally I found a male friend who I actually hugged and was affectionate too, and we talked about a lot of things...I couldn't hang out with him anymore."
Tomorrow Pearl Jam’s follow up to “Ten”, “Vs.” turns 20!! To celebrate tonight for 90 Something (9pm) I’m going all “Vs.”!
The great songs all speak for themselves on this one. The band really pulled back as far as doing press and of course video’s came to a screeching halt at this point. But it didn’t matter, and looking back it was such a wise thing for the band to do. The guys have always stuck to their guns.
Don’t miss out tonight at 9pm as we celebrate the 20th anniversary of Pearl Jam’s Vs!! I’ll be playing number of these timeless songs.
4. "Glorified G"
10. "Elderly Woman Behind the Counter in a Small Town"
And a lil’ video action of one of my favorites from Vs. “Glorified G”!
FOOD & DRINK: Butterfinger Peanut Butter Cups Are Coming!
Reese's Peanut Butter Cups are one of the most amazing candies in the world. They are chocolate-peanut butter perfection, and the fact that they are one of the top three chocolate candies on the market, proves just that. But in just a few more months there will be a new peanut butter cup on the block, and the competition could get cut throat.
Nestlé is launching Butterfinger Peanut Butter Cups, which they say will change the traditional peanut butter cup forever. “It’s the classic peanut butter cup,” Jeremy Vandervoet of Nestlé USA toldTODAY.com, “only Butterfingerized.”
The new candy will have a creamy peanut butter center and, of course, a milk chocolate coating, but there will be bits of Butterfinger in it for crunch and texture. They are also square instead of circle-shaped like the Reese's original.
Nestlé tested the product on thousands of tasters until the proportions of the three main ingredients were just right, and they are now apparently "scoring through the roof" according to Vandervoet. We'll just have to wait until January to find out for ourselves!
NOW FYI….the movie is a comedy. So if you’re looking for the story to be told in a……..serious tone you have been warned. I still wanna see it.
This weekend you'll get to see Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins portrayIggy Pop in the CBGB movie -- but only if you pay attention.
Hawkins admits that he basically has a less than a minute long cameo in the film playing the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame singer. Hawkins says he did do some research for the role, watching footage of Pop in the mid to late '70s as well as losing a bit of weight before he went to the shoot in Georgia. CBGB opens in New York and Los Angeles this weekend and expands to other cities next week.
There's one more reissue to come from Nirvana's In Utero.
The 2013 mix that producer Steve Albini did for the deluxe editions of the album will be released on double vinyl on November 29th through independent retailers for Black Friday Record Store Day. The vinyl will be packaged with an alternate cover.
Marilyn Manson makes a cameo on an upcoming episode of the HBO showEastbound and Down -- but you might not recognize him.
Manson, who's a big fan of the comedy, filmed his role without any of his trademark makeup and even donned a brown wig. There's no word yet when Manson's episode will air this season.
