Shame on me!

Meet Horatio Fogblower, another unfinished prop.  I shamefully left him out in the weather and he looks horrid, in the good and not so good way.   In the good way because he's kind of creepy; in the not-so-good way in that in the shape as he is now, he looks like crap.  The prop is a tombstone with his head protruding and fog billows out his mouth.  
A front view.  A sad front view.  The nose has broken off, the Model Magic has holes in it and the eyes are faded.  There's dirt and mold on him and the whole thing looks a shambles. 
Here we go, looks like the plastic surgery is going to be a smashing success!  Used a commercial papier mache' product to fill in the gaps and reconstruct the broken features. 

New teeth, filling in the skin gaps and a rhinoplasty.
He's going to make it through after all!  I owe it to him.  More to come!

Happy Birthday To ME!

I'm 48 today!  Just always remember as you get older and see bright and promising youths with hope and wonder in their eyes and a shining light in their soul:
Age and treachery will always overcome youth and skill!

Noteworthy Blog...She Didn't Float

No words, just pictures.  But if a picture paints a thousand words, I've read the Library of Congress.

Enter She Didn't Float, a blog of old, odd and vintage pictures.  Some disturbing, some thought provoking, some macabre, some darkly beautiful.  Go have a look-see, you'll be glad you did.

Some samples, for your enjoyment...

For my dear friend Mel who has a crush on Bob. 

Now THIS is a vampire, or vampyre rather!

I so have a crush on her!

Close Encounters of the Crawly Kind

Yesterday I felt something hit my back and when I finally stopped screaming and dancing around, this little (or rather big since he was about 2 1/2 inches) fellow was staring at me. The marks kind of look like a ghost's eyes. Anybody know what he is, besides a big ol' bug?

Happy Mother's Day!

Show your mother how much you love and care about her today!  Or else.

Who IS this person?! Holmes' Haunted Homes

This blew me away...

Seems that there's a haunter near Niagara region of Canada (there's a bunch of great haunters in Canada!) that knows his stuff!  All I can say is wow (and he must have blisters on his bottom from sitting in front of the computer programming this show!).

 Click here to go to the website (well worth it!).

DO WANT!!! And a must-see movie.

First of all, this clock is da bomb baby!

Second of all, this vampyre don't sparkle...I remember seeing this movie way back when and it's absolutely fantastic.  Klaus Kinski is creepy enough as it is but with the makeup, truly terrifying!

Another disturbing scene...I would have had to change my tighty whities.

The film I saw was in German with English subtitles, didn't take away from it in any shape, form or fashion.  SEE THIS FILM!
