Potter

Someone at work asked to see some photos from this year's Halloween display.  I shot them the link and they wrote back "Someone likes the Dementors from Harry Potter."

These guys...
















Now, I didn't go Christ-in-the-Temple on him, but I found his comment odd since a child on Halloween night made a similar comment.  A child who is currently in a compost pile.

I don't see it.  Unless dark figures can all be lumped into the same Dementor category.

compost pile.

Harry Potter fans can associate anything and everything with Harry Potter...it's frightening.

HA. That's great.

And children make excellent fertilizer for flower beds.

Nope, don't see it. unless there was flying stick scarecrows in the movies....

If anything, I could see someone making that comment about the Deathlies/Deadlies from last year...but no one made the comparison.

You should stop talking to coworkers like me..
It helps keep my blood pressure down.;)

Rot said...

Yeah...they don't get it.
I think I mentioned a while back how one guy asked me if I had built any figurines over the weekend.

Figurines.

And the number one hated question that is asked of me constantly:

"Do you do any kind of dark and crazy Christmas display?"

I should travel with a spring-action wrist knife for people who ask that.

Figurines? Ohmygawd.

LOL. To all of your comments here, Rot. Figurines. Like you're really in your garage painting Warhammer figures. At least they didn't call them dolls ;)

You're an artist, damnit! An ARTIST!

I get the same stupid question about a Christmas display at least a couple of times every year. My response is always the same....."HELL NO!!!!".
Those type of questions and comments or comparisons always come from people that I refer to as "pod people".

Jeff said...

um.................what?

Yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, no.

Coming from a guy outnumbered at home by Potterphiles, I know dementors, maybe the cloaked ghost you did and I so blatantly cribbed from...

But not this year's masterpiece, no...hell no.

LOL! Poor kid didn't have a chance ;)
FIGURINES?!? Wow! Non-haunters can be so lame lolol!
I get the, "Wow, ya'll must go all out for Christmas" comment EVERY YEAR. And I don't hate Christmas, but I also don't go all out like I do for Halloween nor do I see the connection of my Halloween display to an awesome Christmas display. I guess that's the only way that they can relate to what we do >=)

Awful..people are morons.

When I did my annual walk around the block in my H2 Myers costume on Halloween night, so dipshit yelled "Hey Jason, I bet mine is bigger than yours". I almost went over and choke slammed him.
