Something talented this way comes...

It started with this fellow...

Now it has spread to this...

And another is on the way.  For those that may not know her, please allow me to introduce to you Shell of Shellhawk's Nest.  If you don't follow her blog, then you should, you're missing a LOT.  First of all, she's a regular on Hauntcast (if you don't know what Hauntcast is, it's a podcast of nothing but Halloween tips, tricks and instruction on how to make a first rate haunt and profiles the brilliant evil geniuses that spend their lives for one night each year.  If you don't know what a podcast is, I can't help you).  Second, her blog is always entertaining, informative and fun, (although her new banner makes me envious!).  Third...she's an artist and that's what this is all about...these pumpkins are hers and now they're mine!  The top one is raku, which is a glazing technique that can give organic, metallic colors that are very beautiful and from what I understand, is a bit time consuming to execute.  The bottom is a wonderful traditional design like what I grew up with (he makes me nostalgic, that's why I had to have him) in glossy pumpkin orange.  I love them both, they put me in the mood.

Link to her Etsy site (what the $#@% is an Etsy anyhow?! And while we're at it, what the &*%@ is an EBay?! Electronic tsy?  Electronic Bay?!  Whaaaaaaat?!?!?!)

Be on the lookout for more designs and larger sizes coming up!

Cussed Out

I have never been cussed out before...until yesterday at a customer's house.  It was unexpected, and his high pitched voice grated on my nerves.

I was cussed out by an African Gray parrot.  The fellow asked me if I spoke Spanish and I said very little, and for me to please not be offended by what comes out of this bird's beak.  This bird is bilingual and can cuss in English and Spanish!   He also tried to imitate the phone ringing and made an uncanny imitation of his master's voice.

YOU %$#^ SONUVA &*%#@$%  

You would be VERY surprised about what I run across in people's homes from time to time!  This is just one of the funnier ones!

Now that's what I'm talkin' about when I say breakfast!

Now kiddies, this is what I call breakfast!  2 Krispy Kreme classic donuts and a couple of greasy strips of bacon!  All I needed was a little maple syrup to drag the bacon through and I would have been all set but this will do in a pinch. 
Mrs. Macabre and I went to Nashville for a freebie trip from her company, which was nice.  They always do things first class.  I'm in love with Tennessee, what a beautiful state!  Nashville was gorgeous, it kind of reminded me of New Orleans without the stale beer/prevalent barf smell everywhere.  This was my mood 3 minutes after I woke up this morning realizing that I had to come back home to Alabama...

This was obviously BEFORE I pulled out the Mary Kay and Paul Mitchell....

I made an ever-loving hog of myself Friday night when the Big Boss treated us all to a free dinner at a classy restaurant.  I had never had a 24 ounce steak before...mind you the plate was about 16 inches across...a charger size.

I like my steaks to moo.  Nevertheless, it was delicious and the best part was that I didn't have to pay for it!

Lastly, I'm wiped out.  It was 96 here today with high humidity and tomorrow is supposed to be 100, but I've got some how-to video editing that I'm going to post soon that will be done in the nice cool air conditioning and a couple of pumpkins that I got that I've got to gush over....they're gorgeous and the best part is, Shell of Shellhawk's Nest did them!

More to come!

A Quick Blogger Question...

Is anyone else out there not receiving email notifications on new posts or replies to posts or is is just me?  About a week ago I stopped getting email notifications and thought no one loved me anymore until I checked my dashboard and saw the love there...

Random Youtube Scariness...

This one is dang scary.  Why the %#$@& would you pet a cat with human hands after he viciously ate a crow in the first place?!

This is somewhat disturbing, the 1920's music, the 'happy' dancing clown, I don't know, it just does...

What...just...happened??? (warning, they don't use &%$#@, they use the real thing)

Demon possessed baby doll...

And lastly...

And Now For Something Creepily Different! And A Review!!!

If you haven't had the pleasure of meeting Unkle Pigors, then you've missed a treat!  Allow me to introduce you to Toxic Toons, your one stop shop for all things creepy and WAY over the top!  His artwork reminds me of Rat Fink with all the wonderful vileness and depravity that you can stand with a decidedly Halloween twist!  He seems like the kind of person that you make SURE comes to your parties.

Now for the review...

Unkle Pigor's Spookhouse DVD
Available HERE

I have to admit that besides secretly listening to Rob Zombie and Marilyn Manson, this is another one of my guilty pleasures that I indulge in.  I'm not one to quote popular culture too much but THIS ROCKS, IZ DA BOMB AN ALL DAT, and pretty dang groovy too!  My two favorite sections have to be Children's Day at the Morgue and Lets Chop Soo-e!, an animated cartoon with all the the subtlety and restraint of a rabid cat on crack.  I can't stop watching it!  Lots of twisted and demented animations as well as a very interesting interview with Unkle Pigors (aka Eric Pigors).  I can vouch for the sheer insanity of this DVD.

Click HERE for a preview of Unkle Pigor's Spookhouse DVD, you'll be glad you did!

Crazy Cool Retractable Vampire Fangs!

Remember Gary Oldman when he's about to put the bite on Winona Ryder in Bram Stoker's Dracula?  His fangs slowly grow down leaving vampire aficionados like me drooling for a pair.

My dear dark friends...I joyfully present Vampfangs:

Ordered me 2 sets.  They were on sale too so hurry up!

A Little Bit of Everything

Some people do link dumps but this is a picture dump.  Just a bunch of pictures from my cell phone and around the house...
Pretty lily at my folk's house...
Blue Hydrangea in my garden
Wallpaper for my computer...
Yes, upside down tomatoes do work.
First one of the season to turn red.
Snuggie, the wonder Chiwienie! (Sleeps with me, tends to be a bedhog though)
Blue Angels over the house earlier last month...they nearly scraped the shingles off the roof!
Bought these at a discount clearance store.  WT@#&%* is going on here?! I'm trying to stay at 'multi-flavor colorings' to keep from looking down at the really horrific spectacle... I really don't know what terrifies me more, the scary @$$ clown vomiting the jelly beans or the Little Orphan Annie zombie kids eating the regurgitated confections!  Either way, I'm scarred on a very very deep level.
And the jelly beans were nasty, I managed to pick out and eat all the red ones and tossed all the rest.

Found these two animal crackers gettin' freaky in a box I bought and had to take a picture AND WHOA, WE DON'T GO FOR THAT THERE STUFF HERE IN THE SOUTH!  
*chomp munch munch*

And lastly, my first olive off of my olive tree...
