Coming Soon: The Mothman Of Point Pleasant

Looks like this is almost ready to be released to the public...


...a soft, irregular sound of footfalls on the stairs! They were slow, hesitant, uncertain, as of something that did not see its way; to my disordered reason all the more terrifying for that, as the approach of some blind and mindless malevolence to which is no appeal.

Book Food

Another great post over at the Vintage Séance blog.  Food inspired from literature.  A spread based on the one in The Legend of Sleepy Hollow would probably make me weep openly if I saw it at a Halloween party.

Still wanting Yoda's Stew, Blade Runner Noodles, and any potion made by Grandpa Munster...

The Pinhead Experience

I think I would be creeped out meeting the Hell Priest of the Cenobites in the flesh at a horror convention.

Now Playing: The Caretaker

Some appropriate music for thoughts of Old Halloweens from decades ago...

Ye Goblins Karnival, 1921

Turns out my great great grandfather was a Yard Haunter.  Found a bunch of photos in my parents' attic over the weekend.  It seems we had a lot in common.

So this Halloween, rather than doing my own Haunt, I've decided to simply feature his Haunt.

I feel he would have wanted that.

Here's one of the photographs we found.

Nordic Akvavit

Aquavit is a spirit traditionally enjoyed in Scandinavia. Nordic Akvavit is flavored with caraway, dill, and fennel. Aquavit is traditionally taken straight, however, it does make a tasty Bloody Mary and can be used in many of the same cocktails that normally call for gin.

Disappointed that Mike Nelson isn't a part of this, but I'll certainly give it a shot.

Now Playing: The Curse Of The Scarecrow

One of the finest Dark Ambient projects around - Megaptera.
Specifically the album below...  one of the reasons I started listening to Dark Ambient.

And with tracks with names like "Kingdom of Death," "The Curse of the Scarecrow," and "Hear My Bowels," how can it be bad?

The Reed Family Abduction

In 1966, the same year the family moved to the farm, the young brothers purportedly had their first extraterrestrial experience. For Thom, though only 6 years old at the time, the images are still vivid. Their bedroom was on the second floor of a big old farmhouse, and one night, after they’d gone to bed, they had a strange feeling, he says. Scared, they wandered into the hall and saw two figures appear at the top of the stairs—“ghosts,” the boys called them.
