I think it's time to start our annual Halloween thread!!!

I'll start with a post about my homemade pizza box lid Halloween decorations.

I've always kept the lids from the Little Caesar's pizza boxes I get every time I get a pizza from them. Why? I've never really known exactly, but for some reason, I just can't bring myself to toss out a nice, square, clean piece of cardboard. Same with nice cardboard boxes. I just know that someday I'll have a use for a nice straight, clean piece of cardboard or a nice clean box.

So anyway, I got these vinyl window Jack-O-Lantern things at the Dollar Tree, four in the pack for a buck, but they weren't really worth messing with. So instead, I used them as tracing templates on the underside of the pizza box lids, then cut the lids to shape, painted them etc.

Front side:



Back side:



Hanging in my yard:



I originally painted the backside black just to cover the printing on the lid, then decided to do a reverse image orange face on them. Now, when they spin in the breeze, you get two faces, one in reverse.

Had to take them down after taking the pic because it's been so windy here, they were whipping all around. Will put them back up in a couple of days.

Just dug out the few Halloween trinkets we had for the office today.
One of the tenants wants me to carve a Jack O Lantern out of a pumpkin she brought home. Told her if she scoops out all that pumpkin goo inside, I'll mark and cut out a face. Hate messing with that stuff.

Always look forward to the Charlie Brown Halloween special..... " I got a rock."LOL

Nice work, Jimbo!

I haven't done anything decoration-wise yet. I thought we would be spending Halloween in Rhode Island but that's not happening. Oh well. I'll put out my wooden jack-o-lantern and ghost that my sister-in-law made. And inside I'll put out my owls. We don't get any trick or treaters in NY so I'll spend the day and evening eating candy I can't resist buying and watching spooky movies.

Thanks, msmadz!!

Speaking of wood jack-o-lanterns, I've had a hankering for quite awhile, to cut a really big one out of a piece of plywood, with my jigsaw. Maybe four feet across. Paint it up and attach wooden stakes to the back side of it to drive into the ground and hold it upright.

Maybe even put some kind of lighting either in or around the eyes, nose & mouth, maybe around the outer edge. Or possibly put a solar powered spot light into the ground in front of it, pointing back at it.

I'd love to back light the facial features, but that would involve getting yellow translucent plexiglass and making a light box on the back. And that of course would start to cost some money.

And as of yet, I haven't found the right size piece of scrap wood anyhow.

I like to make these kinds of things from found materials with a minimal investment in things like paint, etc.

That's exactly what we have! And a ghost peering over the top of the pumpkin. We've had this thing for 18 years and it still is in great shape!

I would do more, but like I said, we don't get anyone coming to the door. It's sad because I love watching the kids all dressed up.

"Kitten" = "adorable".

Would enjoy seeing a pic of your big wood punkin, madz.

If not too much trouble.

Would be a great addition to the 2015 Halloween thread!!!

Anyone else who has Halloween decorations, how about snapping a pic and posting it here?

Leave it to PaW to drop a turd into the middle of a perfectly good natured thread.

Q.) What does a "good wolf" look like?

A.)


Wolves (and coyotes) are the sh*t of the animal world.

Happy Halloween.

I hear that they're coming out with a new movie.
It'll be called, "HALLOWEEN VII: SEASON OF THE SNITCH"
 
In this movie, some  http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=asshaberdasher" rel="nofollow -   digs up part of a stargate in Antarctica, grinds the chunk into itty bitty pieces, and implants them into millions of telephone handsets.
 
When they have the Horror-Thon on the telly and the Big Giveaway comes on at 6:66pm, the Magic Phone comes on, and everybody who used the adulterated telephones will suddenly find themselves overwhelmed with thousands and thousands of carrion beetles, baby brown recluse spiders, horsefly maggots (larvae), and dragonfly nymphs (on each victim) crawling out of the ear used most frequently for listening on the telephone.
 
The creatures all bite in unison, causing all of the victims to collapse into piles of brownish-white powder as all of their bodily fluids are drained by the slimey icky bugs. LOL Wink LOL

The other day, I got a Halloween blast from my childhood Halloween past.

One of my earliest memories in life, was when I was around four or five. We had this trick or treat bucket that, of course, was made to look like a Halloween pumpkin. You see them all over every October. Orange plastic with black faces. Except that this one, being from the 1950's, was made out of metal. Stamped steel actually.

The thing unfortunately got tossed in the trash like so many of the other little treasures I wish today that I'd kept, but I still had a very vague recollection of it. My recollection was so vague that the only things I remembered about it, were that it was metal, orange, had a face on it, though I didn't remember what the face looked like and the only pretty clear memory, which was this black lettering in a "spooky" font that said "Trick or Treat" right along the rim of the opening at the top.

I remember that lettering because as a child, it struck me as being the spookiest part of the whole thing. The capital T's reminded me of telephone poles out along some lonely, spooky highway or something goofy like that.

Anyway, a few days ago I was Google Image searching something to do with Halloween and by God, low and behold, there is this picture of the thing which I hadn't seen in decades.

Exactly the same one, detail for detail.



I had to sit and look at it for a minute, especially the back side, because the memory of those bats and the owl and the big moon as well as the stuff down at the bottom, had completely disappeared from my mind. After a short while, the recollection started to return and I remembered that mine was, in fact, 100% identical to the one in the picture, even down to the bare metal wire carrying handle.

Can you imagine... an object with a bare metal wire carrying handle being produced and sold for kiddies and their delicate little fingers to go carrying around the street at night, being sold today???

The nanny patrol would have a heart attack!!!!

That's the kind of things they gave us go play with as kids back in my day, young folks. "Here, take this metal bucket with the bare wire handle and good luck, kid!!!! If you rip the flesh off your fingers or slice a couple off, don't come cryin to us!!!"



Anyway, as I said, I sorely wish I hadn't trashed the thing back in the 70's when I was a teenager. If not just for the sentimental value, for the dollar value as well. The website I found the pictures on, was a retro "cool junk" site and the thing was selling for $75!!!!!



Happy Halloweenie!!!!

After 13 years of faithfully giving out candy from my California home, I finally get to ignore the whole thing.   I plan on turning out the lights and falling asleep in front of the TV. I don't know the kids around here or their parents, so I just don't care.

My tablet is having issues with YouTube videos on CIH.

Will have to watch it on my laptop later.

Was going to go downtown tonight and check out the freakshow, but I'm probably going to skip it. Parking is a hassle. Ten bucks to use a garage. When I used to live down in that area, I could just throw on a pair of shoes and walk.

Wish I was still good friends with someone who lives near there so I could park in their yard or something.

Maybe I'd go.

Watched a bit of a Munsters marathon on CoziTV last night (thanks, Jimbo).   It included a special presentation called Autotune the Munsters.   Apparently, someone took an episode of The Munsters, reworked it, autotuned the dialogue, added some music, and turned it into a "rock opera".   Anyone see it?   It was pretty clever.

I watched a good bit of it.

Odd.

Watched the Lawrence Welk Halloween Party show.

It was OK, but I didn't really like the song selection much.

I see Welk had two Halloween shows---one in the mid-60s and one in the mid-70s.   Which one did you see?

I'm more of a fan of 50s and 60s Lawrence.   Sometime around 1974, they upped the sophistication of the show, making it somewhat classier.   I preferred it in all its hokey 50s and 60s glory.

I did, however, like Anacani, Lawrence's "lovely Mexican senorita", who showed up in the mid-70s or so.

The one last night was from 1975.

Here's about a 10 minute chunk of it...



The "lovely Mexican senorita" showed up for a number, too

It's not in this clip, though.

Don't know why the entire show is not on YouTube.

There's this really cute gal dressed as a Raggedy Ann doll who did a number I would like to see again.

I think "Raggedy Ann" was his daughter or daughter-in-law or something.


edit:   Yes. Tanya Falan, Welk's son's wife.

That's worded ambiguously.   Would she be wearing it, or would you?

Oh her, definitely.

I'd be wearing something like that Superman costume Larry Hooper was wearing.

Or maybe the Frankenstein costume.

But probably just the ol' birthday suit.

You could dress up as Raggedy Andy and pretend she's your hot sister.

Msmadz, did you know Mr. Duggar has another family?   Or didn't you even care?

Hussy!

I can only wish I'd look as good in that costume as the gal on the right.

Or this...



I'd just look like a fat guy in a dress with a red mop on his head.

As long as you turn your toes cutely inward like the girl above, I'm sure you'd be lovely.

   YOU GUYS!!!

I have to say, the kids that came to our door were so polite! All "THANK YOU's" and "HAPPY HALLOWEEN". No eggs, no shaving cream, no grabing.

I love Rhode Island!

We had none of that horse puckey either (e.g., no uncooked eggs, no toilet paper, no M80s in the mailbox, no shaving cream, etc.); though I did politely ask a younger child, "What do you say?" when he thrust his bag forward and looked at the candy container with his eyes as big as dinner plates. Once he said, "Tricker Treat", THEN he got some candy. Smile
 
I had a pair of comments on the decorations; a teen boy said, "Cool, they've got glow sticks" in reference to the Life+Gear battery-powered glow wands that I had deployed on both sides of the otherwise-dark lower stairs. Later, a mother thanked me for deploying the glow wands to light up the same stairs as her young child stumbled up them in his Grim Reaper costume (complete with cardboard & aluminum foil scythe with broomstick handle). Clap

Well, Halloween has come and gone and is, once again, over for another year.

Amidst the feelings of disappointment I feel at it's lack of luster due to various factors including no Trick or Treaters around here and the fact that I sat home like I do every year instead of going out somewhere, it occurs to me that for me anyway, the real fun of Halloween is in the build up to it.

The month is October, which itself is fun, going out and buying Halloween junk is fun. This year I made my own cardboard decorations and hung them in the front yard. That was fun.

Posting the nekkid Thor cartoon here is always good for a chuckle.

And... I went to the Halloween party at the senior center again. Kinda boring this year. Last year they had pizza and played Halloween themed bingo. This year it was just chili and a costume contest which I left prior to.

So, really, the day and night itself is kind of an anti climax for me.

I'll just tell myself the same thing I did last November 1st...

"Maybe next year I'll go out and do something on Halloween."

Exactly the same one, detail for detail.





Pretty cool.

I remember having metal and tin toys back then.

I don't recall having anything like that. My most memorable Halloween candy container was a paper bag from the IGA that potatoes came in. It was purple with yellow handles. It quickly disintegrated in the pouring rain.     I had a tin Greyhound bus when I was about 4 y/o. It was about 12 inches long and had tin driver and passengers in the windows. I pushed one of them in with my finger which became stuck when I tried to pull it out. My Father pushed it in and freed my finger with only a minor cut. Did my parents throw the toy in the trash? No! Did they sue the manufacturer? Of course not! They rightfully assumed I would never do that again.

I got exactly zero. Northwest Oregon and Southwest Washington had pouring rain and 25mph winds. As far as I know it was much better way up North where you are.

Well, I had a lot of errands to address, yesterday and last night, so I got to see tons of costumes down around The Swamp, and lemme tell you, between all the cops blocking traffic so little masked hoodwinks could go on a candygrab in drug-infested neighborhoods, and their whore mothers (dressed as shown above, but many wearing 'devil horns') flagging down anyone with a dollar, I don't think I missed anything - 'cept seeing an ol'fat mule in one of those outfits, above (i prolly would have wrecked the car). One thing is true - Homey didn't go for any o'dat 'candy', and nobody beez gettin' mine!
