Soccer for Halloween

I had to go to Jackson to cover soccer for work last night, therefore no Halloween partying for me.

During my drive, I did take pleasure in looking for spooks and haunts out scavenging for candy. I made a mental list that included, in order of appearance, an adult scarecrow riding as a passenger, a convict and a skeleton trick or treating together, an uncreepy clown, a sexy pink bunny, a fairy and a monarch butterfly riding with a ghoul who looked a lot like a zombie Uncle Fester, and a cowboy.

However, I did not spot this awesome family of Wild Things riding the subway.

Happy Fourth of July

I know I got going on my Fourth of July celebration a little early with the PES Fireworks video I posted yesterday, but there is plenty of Independence Day spirit to go around.

Here’s another video to get you in the holiday spirit (with kitty goodness included).

Fourth of July Fun

I know it’s a bit early, but I celebrated Friday on Thursday, so why not jump ahead and start shooting off firecrackers for the Fourth of July.

For more fun stop motion videos by the same artist, check out the PES YouTube site.

That’s PES, not to be confused with PEZ and that stop-motion fun song.

Feel Good Friday – Spooky Halloween

Happy Halloween everyone!!

In honor of the holiday, let’s get a little “Spooky” with Dusty Springfield.

The Classics IV did the original, but I like her version.

Newscoma’s FGF tune also has a Halloween vibe.

So does Ginger’s and she’s got a long list of others who’ve posted FGF tunes today.

Sushi Halloween Costumes

We’re closing in on the big scary night of Halloween.

If you haven’t already bought your $1 pair of reading glasses and some hair dillies to do your finest gosh darned Sarah Palin impersonation, you might want to check out the 10 “freshest” costumes I’ve seen in a while.

Here are a couple of samples.

Nativity no-nos

Newscoma has been bringing the holiday spirit to her web site in recent days, so I thought the Squirrel Queen should jump on the Ho-Ho-Ho (pimp my ride) bandwagon.

Kitschy, gaudy, odd, creepy.

At least one of those words (and often all of them) is apt for each and every entry in the cavalcade of Bad Nativity sets at Going Jesus.

Peruse them in all their holy glory.
