And the first Christmas trees are already up... [Nov. 21st, 2014|03:46 pm]
Spotted two walking around the neighborhood last night. Only three weeks late. ;)

I keep toying with the idea of putting up Halloween decorations on December 1st. Put some Santa hats on pumpkins. (The local pirate themed restaurant does this with their skulls.) If Walgreens stocked those cool life size skeletons they had last year, I could have dressed one up as Santa, with a candy cane stake in the chest. Too gruesome?

I think Steven Colbert might be a furry... [Nov. 18th, 2014|10:37 pm]

First he dresses up as a Hawk superhero at Comic Con a couple months ago...


And now he makes love peace with a species he's long been against. Starts at 5:00, if you're impatient.



Is that not the most adorable bear suit you've ever seen? I wonder who made it...

Dragonheart 3!? [Nov. 6th, 2014|05:53 pm]
This was unexpected...

Universal must be getting desperate trying to revive this after 14 years. (Then again, they're up to Scorpion King 4.) I never even saw #2, except for a clip of the flaming fart scene.

And now the screaming starts, Part Deux [Nov. 1st, 2014|03:39 am]
I dozed through the magic moment, but between midnight and three a.m., the holiday horror music express kicked into high gear. Thankfully, I was able to kludge together a way to record some of the Halloween music this past month to tide me over. Those cheapo digital tv converter boxes the cable company gave to everybody in the neighborhood a few years back are finally good for something!

If cable channels started Christmas movies this early, I'd be tempted to go all Elvis on the tv.

And wow, when it finally rains, it really rains. At least it didn't start until well after trick or treaters were done. Didn't see much traffic on my street, even with new neighbors in the new house across the way, but did I hear kids saying the right words for a change.

The stuff Gorn nightmares are made of... [Oct. 31st, 2014|12:53 pm]


Happy Halloween!

About damned time... [Oct. 15th, 2014|02:41 am]
The all music channel's endless Polka barrage was finally replaced with 24 hour spooky tunes. Only 15 days late, dickweeds.

I'm sure the Christmas music turd will drop on Nov 1st like it did last year.

Someone recently pointed out a holiday horror to me, that's apparently been peering out at unsuspecting motorists in town for quite some time. I need to get a picture of this, as there's nothing I can find on the interwebs about it.

And no, it's not the kindly giant Santa by the 101 Freeway that was saved from the scouring of Santa Claus Lane back in 2003. What has become of St. Nick's former home since then proves Santa is real, and you'd better not piss him off. ;)

Damn you Chia Pet, damn you to hell! [Oct. 6th, 2014|04:10 am]
Seeing a Chia Pet ad has long been one of my official signs of the inevitable creeping holiday doom, along the The Clapper, but now, it's no longer content with just stinking up Christmas...



There's also something wrong with the local home improvement store having more Christmas decorations for sale than Halloween. Target at least sneaks in the Christmas stuff at the very back of the store until the Halloween stuff clears out.

The Wicked Witch of the East inflatable legs made me smile though. A picture of her better known sister is on the box for some reason.

Walgreens has surprisingly good stuff this year. Hefty, solid tombstones that are nicer than the ones that I used to have, and Scooby Doo pumpkins. Zoinks! I'm certainly feeling more tempted to put up decorations and answer the door than I have in the past six years.

I might even be able to cobble together a spooky costume, if I could find a pumpkin large enough to wear on my head.

Baby, it's hot outside... [Oct. 2nd, 2014|02:40 pm]
weather.gov says it's 85 degrees outside. My thermometer says it's 101.

I'm pretty sure it feels hotter than 85 when I stick my head outside, therefore, the weather service's thermometer is clearly stuck on the side of an air conditioner.

Youtube invalid auth string error? [Jun. 11th, 2014|01:57 pm]
[mood |confusedconfused]

So, embedded youtube videos are broken/don't work anymore? Or is it just me?

And it's working again...
