Rob Zombie's Ultimate Halloween Playlist

Rob Zombie shared his ultimate Halloween playlist with Entertainment Weekly here. I put all of the videos in one playlist on my YouTube channel. Since Rob didn't add any of his own songs to the list, I added Dragula. I'm kinda surprised he didn't choose any Alice Cooper.

Give Me Something Good To Eat...

We had trick or treat here in Akron, OH Saturday night from 5:00 to 7:00 PM. It was around 50 degrees out and I was freezing! I'm not usually that cold, but I recently shaved my head and I don't go outside that often. My wife brought me hot cocoa in my Spider-Man mug. she's a swell gal!

The big bag of candy I bought was mostly Whoppers. I counted 43 Whoppers, 19 Kit Kats, 17 Hershey's and 16 Reese's. I think I put together around 51 treat bags and ended up giving out about 40 of them.

I didn't see any really cool costumes, half the kids didn't even wear one. One cool thing though was the new neighbors across the street. For some reason we have a large amount of people from Nepal immigrating to our area. I think that's where they are from. Anyway, one guy stood on his car while another guy was in the porch window. They held a rope with a pinata on it and all of the kids got a whack at it. It was neat watching that. And then they all came over to my house and got more candy.

After trick or treat was over, the wife and I went to Outback Steakhouse and then to the movies. We saw Goosebumps. I thought it was a pretty good flick.


Cat over at Spooky Moon didn't have a very good October so she decided to carry on the Halloween spirit through the month of November. If you’d like to keep up with frequent posting Halloween stuff on your blog through November, grab the icon and let her know. I'm not gonna post every day, but there were a few things I didn't get to during October. Happy Hallowvember!

I'm A Pinball Wizard!

My local bowling alley Stonehedge Entertainment is also Akron's largest pinball parlor. My wife and I stopped in there Friday night to have a beer and see our son (he's a bartender). While there I played The Creature From the Black Lagoon and KISS pinball machines. Although it was hard to hear the machines because they had lunar bowling going on. I also took some pictures of some of the monster related machines because Halloween!!!

Wes Craven Poll Results

45 people voted and the runaway winner is A Nightmare on Elm Street with 21 votes! Kind of a surprise to me that The People Under the Stairs came in second with six votes. And tied for third place with five votes each are Swamp Thing and Scream. Thanks to everyone who voted!

My Son As Twisty The Clown

If nothing else, my son got a love of dressing up for Halloween from me. This year he is Twisty the Clown from the TV show American Horror Story.

I Won The Costume Contest At My Work!

Well, I was one of the winners. I was voted Funniest Costume! I got a trophy and a $25 gift card to Regal Theater. Yay me!
