"Hypnosis" is the eight full length album by the long established and widely acclaimed swedish dark ambient artist Johan Levin. This new opus is a massive 2CD release! A truly dark orchestration of the subconscious levels of the human psyche as it reveals itself through our dreams. As one could expect from Johan Levin’s undeniable craftsmanship, this is an engrossing and carefully crafted work. It’s major focus and intent was to convey the intricate details and strong emotions of dreams and nightmares that were submitted by friends and fans, as well as those of Johan himself. With a strong narrative and a distinct progression from surreal melancholy to feverish fear this album is an intense odyssey through the ever fascinating subconscious mind.

Stopped at Solly Farm for their recommended apple cider slushies and to poke around their field of pumpkins. Annoyingly hot and way too sunny for that kind of thing, but we had a lot of fun.
Found this rotted guy at the edge of the field so I figured I'd give him a face and make him a happy greeter for everyone entering the patch.

Going to be putting up some fun Halloween decorations leading up to the High Holiday. Then we'll take them down and replace them with the props/stuff I've been working on.
We wanted to do some Old School fun stuff though in the weeks before. Some store-bought foam tombstones...and we're going to hang this guy from a branch of our gnarly old cherry tree.

Always a cool experience to hear someone's Halloween playlist, so it was great to find one posted on K.O.'s The Skeleton Key blog.

Years ago our son had the flu, and I sat on the edge of his bed one night and listened to my husband walk into the room behind me. It's a colonial home so the floor boards creaked in the whole house. I heard him come over and felt him sit on the bed behind me. I turned and he wasn't there.
Told to me by the owner of a house-turned-restaurant in Bucks County, PA (rumored to be haunted so I asked her about any experiences).
