Supernatural or Madness: The Living and the Dead.

Houston Adventures: Friday 13th equals Cheap Tattoos


Back in my adolescent years, I grew up watching the slasher flick Friday the 13th.

Lately, I have been drawn into watching Discovery Channel’s show Naked and Afraid. Of course, it’s easy for me to critique the people who actually have the kahunas to actually be Naked and Afraid.
