Hello intrepid horror enthusiasts. You’re back! And it’s November! And I’m damn proud of you for coming back to visit me.
Although the coffin hopping has ended, and we are all wearing our sunglasses in front of the computer screen with the lingerings of make-up caked in the corners of our eyes, the horror fun has yet to stop.
Last night’s gallery show/ Halloween extravaganza of amazingness was, well… hilarious really. The Vultures rocked the house, the pub crawl made it’s shambling way down main street and there were tons of people packing the most popular bars all down the way. Turn-out was a little low, but that meant I actually got to talk to everyone who was there and I had time to get my palm read. So, all in all, it wasn’t what I was expecting, but it was still a very memorable evening.
Tonight my husband and I are off to visit the Deadites. They recently had us on their podcast, Trick or Treat Radio. We did a little clip of our top 10 guilty pleasure horror movies. You can find their podcast by going [here]. The Deadites are also a band and we’re going to see them perform up in Worcester MA. Tonight Alexander gets to be one of the costume contest judges and I get to just enjoy myself 🙂 which is good, because sleep continues to be a missing element in my life.
In my last hours of coffin hopping for 2014 I finally made it to to Axel Howerton’s blog (the supreme commander of the coffin hopping undead) and enjoyed the heck out of my visit. axelhow.com He has this great section called the Dead Poetry Slam were authors and readers can post a little poetry as a way to enter for a prize. I actually really like the one I came up with for him, so here it is:
Bare feet trample,
undeterred by shredding thorns.
Heart beats louder
Pounding through her shaking form.
Howls grow closer
Something massive charges on.
One foot catches,
The body crashes down.
Hand is grasping,
only dead leaves to be found.
Heavy claws slash,
ripping , screaming, gushing blood.
Sight fades away,
Shouldn’t have gone to grandmother’s house.
But enough chatter, I know why you’re here. Let’s get to the Halloween prize commissions.
