Yankee Halloween "Party"

This Saturday, the annual [disappointing] event at all Yankee Candle stores - the Halloween 2014 Preview Party. 

Hopefully they have some cool Halloween scents besides the usual Candy Corn and Witches' Brew.

New Hope Horrors

We took a trip to New Hope, PA Sunday morning and found these creepy things.
























And the highlight of the trip.  A weird birdcage, left exposed to the elements.  With a dark mass inside.  When I noticed the human eyeball, I wanted to buy its creator a drink. 

This is pure horror gold.  Imagine this during a heavy rain in the middle of the night... wet and sloshy.  I think Ray Bradbury would weep with joy seeing this.  It reminded me of his glorious story The Jar.

Anaphylaxis

I got too close after disturbing their gourd home.  One got me on the hand as I snapped this [blurry] photo.  Nice little welt forming now.  Feels like concentrated sunburn.  I suspect I'll be dead by morning.

Happy Accident












Was listening to the main titles from the Fright Night remake while watching a video of Haunted Overload with the music track turned off.  It worked perfectly.

The Next In Line

In the market, the remainder of candy skulls from the Death Fiesta were sold from flimsy little tables. Women hung with black rebozos sat quietly, now and then speaking one word to each other, the sweet sugar skeletons, the saccharine corpses and white candy skulls at their elbows. Each skull had a name on top in gold candy curlicue; Jose or Carmen or Ramon or Tena or Guiermo or Rosa. They sold cheap. The Death Festival was gone. Joseph paid a peso and got two candy skulls. 
Marie stood in the narrow street. She saw the candy skulls and Joseph and the dark ladies who put the skulls in a bag.
