Unfortunately, I won't have any photos of this Halloween, since I was a lazy bastard. A lazy, still kind of sick bastard.
I just noticed that Big Bear is playing at the Warehouse Next Door in two weeks. I'm so there. As long as I finish my Deterministic Models homework before Monday night. Also, the cover art for Doin' Thangs by the other Big Bear may be the best thing ever. Too bad all of the cover art scans on-line are so small or you could really bask in the glory of Doin' Thangs.
On the way home, I purchased ingredients to make some fake blood for my costume. Tonight or tomorrow afternoon, I'll mix it up and get some red on me.
Another Halloween, another round of stories about The Bunny Man. Well, it's time to burst the bubble of the boogeyman of Clifton, Virginia. Go read The Bunnyman Unmasked and find out about the origins of this (sub)urban legend.
I was going to post another Halloween related song, but nuts, listen to
This Scene is Dead by We Are Scientists instead.
"The girl I killed before/has come alive once more/her dirty, bloodied eyes/have somehow come alive"
Get ready for Halloween by listening to
She's in Disguise by Thee Headcoats.
Check out these Detroit Pistons pumpkin stencils. I really want to go home and carve a Rasheed Wallace pumpkin now. Have 'Sheed screamin' at the trick or treaters!
For the past couple of weeks, my musical obssession has been We Are Scientists. I wasn't able to see them last week at the Black Cat, but hope to catch them on their next trip to D.C. If you haven't heard them yet, head over to Coolfer, and download Inaction.
After much deliberation--and partially because my cough appears to be going away--I've discarded Doc Holliday as my Halloween costume for this year. Just not the same without that authentic cough. Instead, I've decided to go as Shaun. So, anyone have a cricket bat I can borrow?
"I promise you that I'll never get well/I'm throwing out all my vitamin pills"
Snag a copy of The Nation of Ulysses'
50,000 Watts of Goodwill before I take it down.
Call my number, it's on the thermometer. In a rather ridiculous development, I've come down with a cold right after the flu, which has caused a relapse of the cough I just kicked to the curb. The cough that lingered on for 2 weeks after my bout with the flu had ended. I'm back on track in physical therapy, so at least my knee is getting healthier even if my lungs aren't.
If you're into modern dance, be sure to check out my friend Jane's Efficiency Project at the Washington Performing Arts Society this Saturday night.
Another shot of the Duke Ellington bridge at night. The other photo is here.
