Giant Thurible

With absolute certainty, I used the word 'thurible' more than any other human did in 2018.  Searching for the right incense thuribles for the CHURCH Haunt was rather stressful.  I came across this massive thing in my online quests.

Not that I'm an expert on such matters, but I'm thinking Jesus would be rather concerned about how much something like this cost.

Dead Oak Manor

Another neat video below... (Love that there's a skeletal hand revolving in the cauldron):

The Haunted Basement

Been literally waiting YEARS for these photos to be updated!
You'll now see why I've always considered this Haunt one of the Giants.
Imagine being a kid and seeing this stuff on Halloween night.
















Way more images here.

Driftwood Art

By LenaTom. 
Was trying to find small spooky houses, but couldn't. 
I bet they'd make some amazing dark little things.

Blogger Changes

This appeared on my blog control panel, so it looks like some changes are coming in March.  Seems like the last one is saying that all comments by people using Google+ are going to disappear, so I just wanted to let people know.  I'm old and barely understand the other changes mentioned...


Now Playing: Square Hammer

By Ghost.

And a really great synthwave version of their song RATS.

Trailer: Terror In The Skies

The next documentary from Small Town Monsters.
Super excited about this one. 

My only brush with weirdness was a sighting of what appeared to be a car-sized bird.  Like a giant crow or turkey buzzard, but the size of a car.  A large car.  The weird part was that it was in a very populated area with loads of people and traffic.  I looked over, saw this massive silhouette of something gliding between a bunch of tree branches, and then turned to see the road and kept on driving, in a weird daze.  Trying to convince myself it was a play of light and shadow.

I talked myself out of it over the years.  That it was just some oversized buzzard gliding down for some food and my perspective was off. 

Probably was nothing at all.  Though it made a sound I'd never want to hear twice (this part is a lie).
