EIGHT MORE DAYS TO HALLOWEEN
(Small .WAV file of the jingle from the Silver Shamrock Novelty Co. TV advert).
 
So, is anybody going to dress up (and if so, as who or what?) or are you just going to stay home and hand out candy (please, no razored apples or toothbrushes!) to all of the little ghouls, goblins, witches, Princess Leahs, green M&Ms, Spidermans, etc.

Angry, I am so happy you always post this! It's one of those things that get stuck in your head for days but oddly, I don't mind!

I have a great friend - we probably saw the movie together - and every year he calls me up singing this!

I don't get any trick or treaters where I live and I'm debating about going to a party. Don't have a costume idea yet, though.

Won't be dressing up myself, but I'll likely go along with my sister when she takes her kids out.

Thinking about taking a drive to Santa Mira and seeing all the beautiful sites there e.g. laser fried mouths, snake filled masks, and suicidal androids (though technically that dude's gasoline bath was outside Dr Challis' hospital).

Besides the Silver Shamrock ad song, the entire movie has some very creepy and effective mood setting music. Of course Mr. Carpenter has a knack for musical score choices in most all of his movies.

Interesting also in that Body Snatchers & Season of the Witch have somewhat of a similar plot.  Well, similar as far as the antagonists' plans go, anyway.

Haha, nice find. Apparently Santa Mira is the sci-fi/horror version of "Val Verde", a fictional South American country mentioned/featured in Die Hard 2, Commando, and a couple of other things.

I was going to start a "Halloween 2014" thread, but I'm glad I held off so that the CIH tradition (which I had forgotten) of the "Silver Shamrock" thread can be the official CIH Halloween thread.

This year, I have decided that for Halloween, I am going to indulge my love of ice cream sandwiches, by getting a box of them (one dozen) & eating either the entire box, or as many of them as I can, either in one sitting or over the course of the evening.

Might even become my new Halloween tradition...

Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

DAMN IT JIMBO - Now I am CRAVING an ice cream sandwich. I may have to saunter over to the cafeteria later.

It's been years since I had one and now I won't be able to focus on anything else.

Never!!!

I brought it out, dusted it off & used once already, though earlier than I wanted to.

But there's no rule that says I can't use it more than once.

Just waiting for the right moment....

And I've still got 8 more days!!!

Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

Of course there's no rule Wink   Unlike horror movies where there are in fact rules to be followed.

Ya know, Ang...I was considering dressing up as a drunk for Halloween...but then again, I figured people would just ask me why I didn't wear a costume...

Three more days (not counting today).  Just remember to take care of the little goblins and gremlins that come a knocking, lest you feel their wrath (hey Thor, this remind you of that little girl who was the America's Got Talent contestant? LOL)

That was cute, but I couldn't help noticing how the back of her head looks like someone's butt with a witches' hat on it...

I think I have my TV viewing all sorted out! I just need to pick up some candy (for Beloved and I) as we get no kids to our house.
