Halloween At High Noon: Corpus Vile

The latest from the guys at Halloween at High Noon records.  Always such an amazing alternative to the usual lineup of Halloween music heard this time of year.

So many great tracks on this album.

When I'm a millionaire and have the world's largest Halloween Bash (you'll all get invitations hand-delivered by local theater actors speaking in faux Cockney English), these albums will be playing nonstop.

Minimum Orders: $25

I had emailed Primitives by Kathy regarding their $50 minimum order requirement on web purchases.  Good news:  They dropped it down to $25.

Product Review

We bought one of these thinking it'd be a fun weird Halloween decoration that would look a lot like the green liquid from John Carpenter's Prince of Darkness.  And it kinda does look like that, until the sensor shuts the lantern off.  There's no option to keep the light on continuously.  So you either pay someone to continually tap it (or force your mother to do it), or you take it back to the store, or you throw a fit like Jesus in the Temple (which was my option [before taking it back]).

Wish I read some online reviews.  Seems everyone hates these things for the same reason.


Pumpkin Spice Gum

I dig it.  Not over-the-top with the sweet.
We found it at Target.  They're JUST starting to put the Halloween stuff out too.

Happy Laugh Clown

LAUGH, and the world laughs with you;
Weep, and you weep alone.
For the sad old earth must borrow it's mirth,
But has trouble enough of it's own.
Sing, and the hills will answer;
Sigh, it is lost on the air.
The echoes bound to a joyful sound,
But shrink from voicing care.

Here are some of the scents I've ordered and really dig...

SPICE THYME: The aroma of bayberries and apples with a base note of fresh pine needles and thyme, with a top note of freshly ground cinnamon bark. 


SWEET ORANGE CHILI PEPPER: A sassy, saucy combination of Valencia Orange, Sparkling Bergamot, Tangerine Zest, Tart Cassis, Orange Juice, Neroli, Ground Pepper, Fiery Chili Pepper, and Sheer Musk. 

WINTER CABIN: A wonderful blend of bayberries and cranberries with a top note of freshly crushed cinnamon bark with hints of orange zests.

Down With The Sickness

It has been established that persons who have recently died have been
returning to life and committing acts of murder. A widespread
investigation of funeral homes, morgues, and hospitals has concluded
that the unburied dead have been returning to life and seeking human
victims. It's hard for us here to be reporting this to you, but it does
seem to be a fact.
