Got a chance to chat with rocker/filmmaker Rob Zombie yesterday about his haunted house, which opens today in Villa Park. (I'll be doing a bigger story on his haunted house and others in the suburbs for the Oct. 10 edition of Time Out, the Daily Herald's entertainment section.)
Rocker and filmmaker Rob Zombie visited the suburbs Thursday to promote the haunted house he helped develop, "Great American Nightmare," which opens Friday in Villa Park. Zombie said he brought the haunted house here because the Chicago area has always supported his work.

New project/contest entry! Man, I wish this was a real single-day music fest. At any rate, the portfolio grows.

Does the ease of smartphone texting make people flaky to the point of destroying your get-togethers? This guy certainly thinks so.
