Artist of the Week: Alex Honnold

Not our typical AOW, Alex's craft consists of mastering both mind and body to be the first person to climb Yosemite's El Capitan alone and without a rope. His preparation, focus and tenacity are something to behold. He left nothing to chance in his climb, except of course, the risk of being tethered to . . . nothing. He was able to block out all distractions including fear, nervousness and doubt to accomplish his goal. Free Solo captures the nail-biting beauty of his journey perfectly. A must-see.

King's Hawaiian, maker of rolls and Hawaiian-inspired barbecue sauces, began thinking up new shopper marketing ideas to promote Halloween-themed recipes about four years ago.

Artist of the Week: John Carpenter

Forty years ago, filmmaker John Carpenter dreamt up the eerie, off-kilter title music for Halloween that became synonymous with masked slasher films. For the 11th film in the series (celebrating its 40th anniversary this year) Carpenter, along with his son and godson, crafted a soundtrack that turns some of the original score's tracks on their heads and sets a modern, creepy backdrop for the film (and probably your Halloween party, too!).
