This is an oldie but a goodie from 2004. At the time it was the basement of the Dion Den. It was a crazy party & a great night. This set was thrown-together, and it was a ridiculous amount of fun:
☠ Misfits Tribute Set – Oct. 30th, 2004 @ the Dion Den ☠
Filmed like a stalker would film, by a guy that eventually became to be affectionately known as “Creepy Dan”, the lighting, “effects”, & continual shots of Mike’s crotch are kind of disturbing.

I have a bunch of stuff I wanna blog about, but I need the time to sit down & do it. [I have some goofy World (and Lunar) Domination ones coming up, some half started... that seems to be what grabs more readers/comments.]

This one is relevant & easy to knock out because of the time of year. I was trolling through Netflix on the Wii the other night, trying to find a good Halloween-ish movie to watch.
Shaun of the Dead
My wife is scared easily, and wasn’t in the mood for House of 1000 Corpses-like gore or Alien-like “Ah!” jumps. (I still can’t get her to watch Silence of the Lambs.) I was thinking The Crow, maybe Monster Squad or Shaun of the Dead.
I thought of a bunch that weren’t available for streaming, like Wolf and Teen Wolf or even Beetlejuice. I found myself unable to think of campy other spooky fun.
Help me build a go-to list of all of us who are too old to remember good scary/funny/creepy movies like Ghostbusters, Batman, Zombieland, Fido, Edward Scissorhands, etc.
While we’re on it, does a streaming service other than Netflix offer these movies, or am I going to have to start trolling the cheap DVD/Bluray bin at Walmart? Maybe I just need to get a device like Roku that streams Amazon movies.
What movies make you want to mentally escape in front of the blue glow of your TV under a warm blanket on a cool October day?

When I was a kid, and I went trick-or-treating… there were always a few memorable houses; The people that weren’t home but left a bowl of chips on the porch, the guy who gave out quarters (or 50¢ if your costume was “above an beyond”), and the guy who decorated his front porch like a haunted house and scared the crap out of you every year. The best was when he dressed as a scarecrow dummy and sat ridiculously still until your finger was just barely touching the doorbell and jumped up with a terrible scream. I nearly filled my pants with fear at that place many a year.
That was fun. Now that I’m of the old age where I need to pass out candy instead of collecting, I’d like to be that fun too. Sadly, it seems to me that parents would get angry these days if I scared the bejesus out of their child.
I saw this comic online and thought it would be funny to set up shop on the front porch for Halloween:
I don’t think I’ve grown out of wanting to wear costumes, and this looks like a good excuse. All I need is some paint and an Ackbar mask. Would you be creeped out to bring your kid up to get candy if Admiral Snackbar was set up, or would it be a cool memorable Halloween adventure?
