DISSECTING YOUR HOLIDAZE: Halloween Style


I did a Christmas one a long time ago, so here is my follow-up.  I am older and more jaded now, so excuse me if my youthful exuberance has vanished. And I know that I said I didn't want to post more right now, but I'm attempting to do it because it makes me feel better. 2013 has been hard. I am hoping 2014 holds something more promising for me. God knows what that is, really.



I know, I KNOW: they are speaking IKEA.

Chapter 1: The Background

I live in Collegetown USA now, so no one really decorates. They are all too busy being drunk and having sex.


BRA? BRA?!!?!?!

I only have the first thing in common with them.


What I am writing about will be things from memory andddd what the Internet tells me is popular. The Internet has never lied to me.


Chapter 2: The Costumes

When I was very little I went as the Cookie Monster for several years in a row. Then I went as a fairy, then Casper the Ghost, then Robin from Batman & Robin, then I went as Darth Vader. My sister took me trick-or-treating. Some dude was like, and I think in retrospect he was hitting on her, but he was all like "HOW CUTE! Taking your little brother trick-or-treating." ... 

As I got older, I realized Halloween was less of a holiday to be SPOOKED by and more of a holiday for girls to embrace their inner whore. Even if all other 364 days a year, they are a whore.

Every costume can be made into a slutty costume, with just the right amount of effort and elbow grease. But don't ask me! Crowdsource Pinterest under the hashtag "#regretful Halloween blowjob."

See, for instance, TEACHER:

I feel like I would have gone to Harvard if all my teachers were like this.

You could also just make your cat a slut:

MEOW

Chapter 3: Decorations

I always have loved Halloween garbage bags. Do you realize Halloween the only holiday with its only official garbage bag? Why don't we get any Thanksgiving turkeys?!?!?!



You are now trying too hard.


You could also use some pillowcases and cotton balls to set up a weird display of ghosts:


If all else fails, there's always that GOOD OLD fallback, the INFLATABLE. This one is of a ghost giving birth to a cat:


Chapter Four: Getting Scurrd! BOO

Are you throwing a Halloween party? Congratulations! I hope no one secretly hates you.


Here are some ideas for a SPOOKTACULAR good time!

Tell scary stories!
This can be anything from vampires to demons, to the existence of Kristen Stewart, to the government shutdown, to predictions about the economy, to various chapters of "Raptured by the Raptor."

Have drinking games!
Have each guest at your party discuss their BIGGEST fears. Then, drink tequila afterward. Or rubbing alcohol. Only conclude when someone gets alcohol poisoning. (Note: This can be easily substituted for a game of Apples to Apples).

Watch scary movies!









Happy Halloween! Don't eat too many gobstoppers!

"Chang-E" - Emmy the Great (new album out 10/9)

Emmy the Great drops her new album tomorrow on Bella Union - the fastest album she says she's ever created.  "April /月音" was completed after a trip to to her birth city Hong Kong in 2017. In early 2018, Emmy the Great made "April /月音" in a two-week period in Brooklyn - which was delayed for release until now because of her maternity leave. After recording this album, Emmy moved (for good) back to Hong Kong.  Since her original trip to Hong Kong, things have become quite tumultuous there. Said Emmy. "I’ll never know why the city called me back, but I know what it gave me. In return, I want to give it this album. That Mid-Autumn, nobody could have predicted what was to come, neither the atomization that began with the anti-Extradition Law protests in June 2019, nor the struggle for democracy that continues now, through the Covid-19 pandemic. To witness your birth city in its greatest moment of need is a powerful, humbling event, and I know I watched Hong Kong

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawso

movies you should see: hiroshima mon amour

Hiroshima, Mon Amour this movie has been on my mind a lot lately, due to the recent events in Japan. when I saw it about a year ago, it easily made an impression on me. easily. it was just so beautiful, in every way thinkable. it follows the story of a French actress and her Japanese architect lover, having a conversation together as they lie in bed. the majority of the film is told in flashbacks of their lives in WWII (the film was made in 1959, so there's a ten year gap there). he was directly affected by the dropping of the atom bomb in Hiroshima; she was ostracized due to her involvement with a German soldier. the reason I was propelled to see it was the song "Burning Hearts" by My Favorite- "I was an architect, she was an actress, I drew the Eiffel Tower upon her dress." (really good song too, by the way! RIP My Favorite). luckily, you can find the movie online. here's a portion of it: I HOPE YOU LIKE READING FILMS it's given credit (so I am
