Let The Countdown Begin!

The Halloween Countdown 2008 has begun! I'm gonna try to post something Halloween or monster related every day in October. Please don't be too disappointed if I miss a few days :)

Be sure to visit the sites listed below and try not to overload on the strange, macabre and bizarre. A special thanks to Jon at Random Acts of Geekery for the Halloween Countdown logo.

Gotta love those elvira albums ;)

Good list of sites this year - I hope I can find time to check them all.

Rozum said...

Good Luck this year, Erick! I look forward to seeing what you bring. Halloween Stomp is one of the best Halloween Albums of all time. You wouldn't believe the trouble I went through to get one back before the music sharing days.

Your Halloween Countdown idea is awesome! Hope you'll let me join the party. I've got a month's worth of monsterous posts in the works, starting with today's look at the 1970s Spectre.

Here's my link:

I have a wax museum blog, and all my October posts will be focused on the Chamber of Horrors! Here's the link:

The list of Halloween bloggers keeps getting bigger and bigger. I think I've added everyone to the list.

@Rozum -- Believe it or not I found the Halloween Stomp CD at my local library.

@The Groovy Agent -- The Halloween Countdown wasn't my idea. I believe it was started by John Rozum.

@Everybody -- be sure to let John and Random Acts of Geekery know that you want to join the Countdown so they can add you to their list.

Thanks everybody. It should be a wild month.

I don't know that I started the Halloween Countdown. I think some of us (Secret Fun Blog, Neatocoolville, Plastic Pumpkins, myself) were doing it independently. I tried to bring everyone together as something of a group event, rather than everyone just being isolated and posting alone into the void.

Erick said...

Well, even though you may not have started it, thanks for bringing everyone together.

Great Blog! I would like to take part in the Halloween countdown if its not to late. I have a couple of things on my blog that I haven't seen anywhere else. Add me to the list if you can.

Howdy. My asylum at is doing 32 Days of Halloween, because we're heavily caffeinated and couldn't wait for 10/1. You can find that mess here:
