Some years ago as irt got close to Halloween I went and got the biggest pumpkin I could find, carved the pie making guts out of it and the proceeded to carve a really scary face. Then I took some of the stringy guts and placed tehm in the mouth so it looked like pumpkin puke. Then I put a candle inside, stuck the butcher knife in its head and poured a mix of water and red food color over the top. My lady said "Oh I think that's a bit too scary". I stuck it out at the front door anyway. When we went to the door to hand out candies, I got teh greatest kick out of how even the youngest, 3 year old little girls laughed like crazy when they came up to meet my butchered scary pumpkin.

I made buzzards for Halloween this year.

I ordered 6 plastic flamingos from Amazon and painted them, then bought the plastic rats and bloody dismembered body parts from the dollar store.

We get about 50-60 kids on Halloween.  I hope they love it!  :D

I'm not the genius though.  I saw a picture on the internet a couple years ago and had searched thrift shops and yard sales for flamingos for the last 2 years.  Finally said, Fuck It this year and just ordered from Amazon.

In other related Halloween Culture news, between the boyfriend and I, we've polished off 2 boxes of mini-chocolate bars. So far.   ;D

Hey, that's tantamount to peaking at a Christmas present before am 25th! Do 10 pushups and no candies before supper.

Since Halloween is upcoming, I decided to watch a scary movie.  Since I don't really do horror movies or slasher movies or anything like that,  I picked something pretty mild and tongue-in-cheek.

Happy Death Day! is basically a cross between Scream! and Groundhog Day.

Theresa "Tree" Gelbman is a sorority girl, the awful, stuck-up, snobby sorority girl stereotype, the kind that gets murdered all the time in slasher movies.  And Tree gets murdered all the time, too.  She gets murdered in the first few minutes of the movie, and pretty regularly afterward.   But each time she gets murdered, she just wakes up again, in a stranger's bed, to start the day all over again.  It happens to be her birthday, which is a particularly difficult day for Tree, even when she's not being murdered.

After some failed attempts to escape her fate, she embarks on a plan: if she can stop getting murdered, she'll live to see a new day (instead of the same one.)  She sets out to solve her own murder.  But Tree is a pretty awful person, and as she starts making a list of people who'd want to kill her it dawns on her that it's a pretty long list.


I liked this a lot. It's not very scary-- it delivers some jump scares and scenes that you'll want to shout at Tree to get her fucking head in the game. But there's nothing that'll keep you up at night.  It's not gory or sadistic or terrifying. And knowing that she'll be back for another round makes it hard to be too worried for her.   Mostly I liked the way the movie makes you fall for Tree.  Even though she starts off as the worst stereotypical stock character, by the end of the movie you'll love her.  Each time she relives her day, you find out a little more about her and get to know her a little better.  The whole movie is carried on the little shoulders of Jessica Rothe as the main character, and she's wonderful.



Also: "DUDE DID YOU TOTALLY HIT THAT PRIME VAGINA OR WHAT?!"    Like Ned Ryerson in Groundhog Day, it gets more hilariously aggravating each time.

HEYYYYYYyyyyyyyyy.



So I watched the first episode of "The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina" last night, and I was pleasantly surprised at how awesome it was.   I think I can say without exaggeration that this is in the same stratosphere as Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, The Sopranos in terms of sheer epicness.

While this is based on the Archie Comics characters, this is not your mom's (or Melissa Joan Hart's) Sabrina.  The story finds Sabrina just a few days before her 16th birthday, which is also to be the night of her "Dark Baptism", which is sort of like a Bat Mitzvah for witches.  She's excited to carry on the family tradition, but also unhappy about having to leave her mortal friends. She also has doubts about whether signing her name in something called "The Book Of The Beast" is really a wise life choice.  As well, strange things are going on... it appears that Sabrina is key to something bigger that she herself doesn't know about. Sinister forces are very determined that she sign the book.  Mayhem abounds, with blood and carnage and evil magic and devil worshippin' going on.  It really does try to live up to the "Chilling Adventures..." title.

I feel like this is a true landmark in TV storytelling.  This program is rated NSFW (Not Safe For Wilbur).

I went out and got pretty tanked last night.  My favorite Halloween thing that I saw was a busker in a werewolf costume shredding heavy metal guitar on the street corner.



At least, I think it was a busker and not an actual werewolf.
