To start this month off with a bang, here’s the 2014 LBJ Halloween Mood Table! I stole the idea from Matt over at Dinosaur Dracula, and its always been a good way to deal with all of the Halloween decorations I don’t have room for in my apartment. This year, though, my Mood Table ended up expanding more than I thought it would. (I ended up needing to use an old PC tower I haven’t junked yet - it’s seen more action covered in a tablecloth and Halloween tchotchkes then it has in years!)
Included on the table is a bunch of spooky light-up stuff (you can’t really see it, but that Frankenstein, those creepy skull candle things at the base, and that skull-shaped LED candle all glow), random spiders, Universal Monster/TMNT hybrids, secret Chuckys, mini sodas, Monster Cereals, DVDs and even that cool Aliens watch from Matt hisownself! So thanks DD for the inspiration, and here’s to a good month of spookification!
This morning, mummyshark made a post on his site about his tradition of a Halloween Mood Table. I was inspired to try it myself, considering I needed a boost for my Halloween spirit. Being sick kinda put a damper on it, but this helped a lot! It was very cathartic and fun.
I had to skip the live candles/candy, my German Shepherd bumps into this table far too often for to be safe.
If you’ve never seen The Wickedest Witch, you missed out! It was a Halloween TV special that aired only once back in ‘89. Behold the glory of Rue McClanahan as an evil witch, surrounded by creatures that looked like background players from The Dark Crystal!
I reviewed it years ago on X-E, but sadly, that review is currently down. If I can find the tape again, I might give it another go.
Thanks to Jeremy Sung on Facebook, the mystery of the Robot Super Mart figures is solved! They’re apparently US rebranded versions of Takara’s “Telecoma Senshi”, with the ramen packages reinterpreted as canned goods.
A teenage group of cultists set up at Crystal Lake because of it’s dark forces. Jason begins to slaughter them as they perform hedonistic rituals, but can he finish them off before they bring about the end of the world?
This is actually a very cool concept!
Most people view Jason as a sort of hero — something like this would be a great way to make that happen without changing him one bit. (It’s not like he needs to know he’s doing “good work.”)
