Anise & Clove Candles - Final Push

Re-re-re-RE-promoting these candles as we approach October. 
Important to note:  I get no kickback from these sales, as I realize I'm neurotic about mentioning them on the blog.  It's just that:
A.  I love them and KNOW you'll dig them.
B.  I need this company to sell them for as long as I haunt my porch.

(and all her other Autumn stuff is great too.)

Jamie Lee Curtis Returns As Laurie Strode

Jamie Lee Curtis returns to her iconic role as Laurie Strode, who comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.

Master of horror John Carpenter will executive produce and serve as creative consultant on this film, joining forces with cinema’s current leading producer of horror, Jason Blum (Get Out, Split, The Purge, Paranormal Activity). Inspired by Carpenter’s classic, filmmakers David Gordon Green and Danny McBride crafted a story that carves a new path from the events in the landmark 1978 film, and Green also directs.

HALLOWEEN will be produced by Malek Akkad, whose Trancas International Films has produced the HALLOWEEN series since its inception. Green and McBride will executive produce under their Rough House Pictures banner.

HALLOWEEN will be distributed worldwide by Universal Pictures.

I'm not as thrilled as I'd think I'd be by this news, but here's hoping it's a truly scary horror film.  I guess they're erasing the other films in the series.  And I'm thinking I'm ok with that (though HALLOWEEN IV is a terrific sequel).

Fake Is Cool

What's better than a smoking fake fire or cauldron? 
Nothing, that's what.

I could pull up a beach chair and watch something like this for hours....

High Noon Vs Evil Dead

And I still think this song needs to be used in the next season of Ash vs Evil's excellent suiting-up music.

Overdrawn At The Memory Bank

A GREAT episode of MST3K.
I have it set to go at a favorite part...

Halloween Fruit

I've seen this photo a lot over the years searching for blog material...and every time I see it I imagine the reaction kids must have as their eyes fall upon it... the bananas already starting to turn brown around the eyes and mouths...the oranges drying out on the surface, with their celery stalk stems' earthy flavor clashing with the sweetness of the oranges.

There are three possibilities as to who initially invented these:
1. Someone who doesn't understand children.
2. Someone who hates children.
3. A Nun.

As a kid, I probably would have belly-flopped on the table without thinking.


Some great stuff here...

That Old Integrity Discussion Again

Been seeing this guy's pictures popping up more and more in my searches for Halloween images for the blog.  After checking out his website, instagram, and facebook accounts and seeing absolutely no mention of my site anywhere as the source material, well, I wanted to call him out on it.

I simply do not get how someone can feel that they are truly creating if the entire premise of their works, the very end product of their hard work, exists solely because they saw it elsewhere.  And I'm not even going to get into the issues I have when that person starts selling these works.  Is it legal?  Sure it is.  Is it honest?  Absolutely not.

Here's a photo of his "Guardians of the Gate" (Sentinels):

And here's some text from his website:
The scarecrows and corpses you see on this website were designed for this event and I have continued to produce them in varying forms and sizes. They are a culmination of my study of the natural effects of time and the elements on various materials and surfaces, while at the same time designed to have a classic, bygone era appearance that in a curious way simultaneously invites and repels. Using photos I have taken of these creatures, I have designed Halloween greeting cards featuring composites of them on the property and combined with sunset photos I have taken to create a style that is uniquely my own.

"Uniquely"... This guy has some chops.

Anyway, below is the source material for this guy's existence.  My Pumpkin Sentinels.  I love these guys, and am very proud of them.
Here's the guy's site...

Slight update on this issue:  The builder of these Guardians of the Gate, Kerry Lawton, claims that any resemblance to my Pumpkin Sentinels is, and I quote, "purely coincidental."
