I ran across this old ad at eBaum’s World and thought it funny.
When I was in high school, I loved to listen to Alice Cooper, yet somehow I missed this episode of the Muppets:
Knowing that many of you have animal friends, I thought I’d share these photos of Halloween “Trick or Treat” Dogs with you:
You can see the excitement written all over this poor dogs face (I’m getting goosebumps):
Now, this group is actually frightening:
As we move into Halloween, here are a three (cool) carved pumpkins and one bonus (lame duck) pumpkin (I think I would enjoy having just a touch of this creativity):
Here’s the first (brainy):
and the second (interesting):
the third (artistic):
and the lame duck:
Since it’s the week of Halloween, here’s a very life-like carved pumpkin head. You can click here to view a series of pictures that follow the process of carving. It’s worth it – I found it very fascinating to see how this was made.
I wouldn’t mind having this kind of artistic talent.
This is mildly disturbing. It reminds me of a pumpkin version of the snowmen in the Calvin and Hobbes cartoons.
This is frightening, yet oddly fascinating. I wish I had this kind of talent for carving pumpkins - this would look so awesome on our front porch. Unfortunately, I’m happy to carve something that has eye holes and some kind of jagged streak that doubles as a mouth. This is cool:
If you haven’t completed your candy shopping for halloween, here are the top five suggestions for halloween candy, brought to you by Bnet:
Sour Candy. The favorite of little guys and ghouls. As Bnet says, “The more the face puckers, the better.” Kids like the weird shapes.
Snickers or any other kind of candy bar – chocolate is top choice, full-sized is most desired.
Novelty Candy, or candy with a toy. Lollipops with plastic-bug centers and finger boards filled with candy are top choices.
Sugar-Free Candy. Sales are up 12%. Click on the photo to link to a place where you can find your favorite candies in sugar-free form.
Assorted Bags of chocolate miniatures, lollipops and hard candy. Bnet has obviously never been to my neighborhood. Fun size is not fun. My neighborhood kids would think this was a trick.
It’s October, thus it’s time for some frightening fun. Pop Culture Madness offers its visitors an opportunity to vote on top stuff. Here is the Scariest Pop Music of All Time (as determined by visitors to Pop Culture Madness) – these are the top five songs, but the complete list is at the end of this post or you can click here:
The Monster Mash by Bobby “Boris” Pickett and the Cryptkickers – lot’s of fun!
Haunted House by Jumpin’ Gene Simmons (not the one from KISS).
Thriller by Michael Jackson. More a film than a video, but very well done with top talent (and great dancing) - this was made before Jacko became so wacko.
Ghost Busters by Ray Parker, Jr. A fun video with lots of cameos of people who were popular at the time.
Ghostriders in the Sky by The Ramrods. No lyrics with this version, but the video has Clint Eastwood – a must for anything to do with country.
