Halloween is nearly upon us and it's time to enjoy the spoopy things in life. Now, I used to be a huge Halloween fan. Scratch that. I was a huge fan of excuses to dress up and make costumes. Either way, I would usually plan an outfit in about June, trying to get it to match up with friends. Unfortunately, time commitments and low cash flow have forced me to put that particular passion on the back burner.
So what shall one do if they're not attending a Halloween party or dressing up? Well, I might have a solution (though admittedly one specific to me.) I'm attending a Monster Mash performance by the local circus troupe here in town, Circus Bacchus. These guys are putting together quite the little show. I know, I've already filmed their warm ups. And... there is also the potential that one of my wrestling students is in, like, four of the acts. And I'm getting a free ticket.
Okay, so that's not a great solution for everyone, but you gotta find your spoopy where you can. If it wasn't this, I'd be settling in for Nightmare Before Christmas and, of course, The Corpse Bride. I don't know what it is about the latter, but I really dig the vibes. Maybe it was just too long sine Nightmare and I needed a fix. Who knows?
Either way, Halloween is almost here, so find an excuse to get your spoopy on. Watch some slasher flicks. Go to a haunted house. If possible, do something local and support the artists that try so hard to give you a little scare here and there.
And of course, no matter what you end up doing...
Be Excellent to Each Other.
