Off Season Porch...

The Haunt makes the porch look way bigger than it really is...
I blame the blanket of leaves.

She Flew Away

I've gone on in the past about my fondness for the JEEPERS CREEPERS films...  This one was on the other night and I still marvel at how entertaining I still find it after all these years.  How I am rooting for the kids and not for the creature....  and how I relish the Creeper getting stabbed a million times at the end...and how I still get a chill when I see his eyes open in pure anger/hate as his body is shutting down for another 23 years...

Rest In Peace: George A. Romero

One of the few horror icons I actually met in person.  What a legacy he leaves behind.
The weird tag line of Dawn of the Dead was one of the earliest memories I have of something truly scaring me..."When there's no more room in HELL, the dead will walk the EARTH."  Some kids were talking about that in grade school when the film came out, and it really REALLY got under my skin.

Going Through Old Photos




Scarecrow


Dusk

So, as a guy who hates going to malls, I made a trip to a local mall where I knew they had a Yankee Candle Store.  Mind you, I'm not proud of this fact...  that I visited a mall for the sole reason of smelling a candle called Autumn Dusk.
I get in there and start sniffing around, and I can't find it.  I see their other new Autumn scents, and they're all soapy and perfumey.  But Autumn Dusk is nowhere.  So now I'm going to be forced to ask the store employee "Do  you have that new Fall scent?" [trying to butch it up.]  And she's like "We have a few new scents! Which one were you looking for?!"  And I lie "I think it's called something like Autumn Dusk."  And she says "No, that's not one of the new ones."  And I'm like "...nah...I'm pretty sure it's called Autumn Dusk."  And she SHOULD have been like "I thought you didn't know what it was called!"  but then she remembers, "That's our web exclusive scent!"  And I'm like "Web Exclusive?!  Who buys a candle without smelling it?!" [blowing my cover...and exposing my non-butchiness.]

So there you have it.  Save yourself a trip to the store.
