The same level of passion is displayed by director Adam Pogoff, a member of Meerkat Media Collective, for music.

You can roll your eyes or shrug your shoulders all you want, but Hocus Pocus is the best Halloween movie – and I’ve got 10 reasons why I’m right.

Named a 2013 Artist to Watch by Billboard and MTV, Robert DeLong has taken the music scene by storm since releasing his debut album, Just Movement, in February of this year.
