Now on to the fun things, Happy Halloween! This picture has been floating around the internet for a couple days, and I think it’s one of the most creative mixed idea costumes. I know a ton of people hate mixing genres for costumes, but I figure there is only one day a year where it is socially acceptable to dress up, so might as well go all out.

I love mixing ideas, though mine usually end up as a zombie cheerleader or dead Axl Rose…..really I just pick something I want to dress up as and then zombify it.   What did you dress up for this Halloween?

Also NPR had a couple of fun Halloween links over the past couple days:

Lastly, for those like me who won’t be trick-or-treating on Halloween (alas I work) you can still give yourself a fright with a collection of Halloween poetry or if you are lucky, you can visit some of literature’s most famous haunts.

When Edgar Allen Poe owned Katy Perry

I had another blog post prepared for today, but came across this video and had share it instead.

Sometimes two diametrically opposed ideas crash together into greatness. This is one such time. Take a generic (sort of “Eye of the Tiger” rip-off) song and add one comedian impersonating, Edgar Allen Poe, and you come up with a masterful piece.

If only this was playing on my radio instead…..
