Having done the Halloween thing with the kids, and listened to both The Shaggs and Screamin Jay Hawkins, I’m now settling down in front of the computer to watch my annual allotment of scary movies. Sadly, John Carpenter’s Halloween doesn’t seem to be available on Netflix, so it looks like I’ll be watching either The Cabin In The Woods, Carrie, or episodes of 16 and Pregnant, as I dig my way though the enormous bag of candy that Clementine thought that she could hide from me.
As for the Shatner reference above, I suspect most of you got it, but, in case you didn’t, the mask worn by Michael Meyers in the original Halloween film was a Captain Kirk mask that had been shorn of its sideburns and painted white. And, for what it’s worth, I was just kidding about Shatner’s acting. I actually don’t think it’s so bad for a Canadian… In fact, I kind of enjoy watching him practice his craft.
One last thing, while we’re on the subject of Halloween… I didn’t have the nerve to hand any out, but I took a crack at editing what’s come to be known as the North Dakota fat letter… Let me know what you think.
Oh, and while we’re on the subject of costumes, I really wanted to really terrify my fellow Ypsilantians and dress Arlo as Obamacare this year, but Linette won the debate and he ended up going as an adorable, little squid.
