Today is October 13th and we're also right in the middle of the *spookiest* time of the year as well. This is a special month for us at XFN; not only do Chris Carter and Fox Mulder celebrate their Birthdays but also is our 7th Anniversary month!
We know you're used to our traditional Annual Pumpkin Carving Contest and we won't disappoint. Details on that are coming soon, but we also wanted to announce a few new things coming our way!
X-Files Halloween Marathon
On October 31st, 2014 we will hold a spooky-themed marathon. Join us on twitter as we share our insights about some of the scariest episodes of the show. Tweet, participate and have a jolly good time with us! More details to come.
This is one of our new activities! Sophie Brown and Keva Andersen host the kick off of our Millennium rewatch with a marathon on November 30th, 2014, in preparation for the upcoming release of the Millennium miniseries by IDW Publishing. We will join them as we watch the first episodes of the show that brought us Frank Black. Stay tuned for more details!
Annual Pumpkin Carving Contest
You know it! Another year, another chance to show us your skills! Whether you go for the minimalistic jack-o-lantern or create intricate carving designs, we want to see your X-Files inspired pumpkins! Winner will be picked by a judge yet to be announced and he or she will take home a combo of X-Files goodies. Stay tuned for an announcement on this very soon.
But that's not all!
In the following months we will be adding new sections and activities to our website, social media sites and forums, including a thorough review of The X-Files comics released by Topps in the 90's. Sophie Brown, our newest staff member, will be revisiting the editions and bringing us her especialized analysis and commentary.
In addition, we will be hosting more rewatches of other Ten Thirteen properties, a new and revamped X-Files Book Club, new featured stories and interviews, along with the usual coverage of all things X-Files that you're accustumed to! Expect new faces joining our ranks that will make our XFN family even bigger!
So sit tight and hop on for a ride.
