Greetings to one and all!
Last night, we had a very small Halloween party at the Undisclosed Location (in keeping with its size). M. did a great job with festooning the place with black and red, along with pumpkin lights and a curious beetle sculpture we found in the brightly-lit corner of a chain home goods store. M. was a witch, and I went as Sherlock Holmes (sans pipe, I’m afraid). Little Yig came out for a brief while, under the overprotective guardianship of her dad. The hippo, now freed from his imprisonment, swathed himself in a couple socks and appeared as a ninja.
Some wanted to play The Rocky Horror Picture Show, but we never got to it. Instead, I decided to maintain the holiday spirit with some classic black and white films – White Zombie, Last Man on Earth, and Nosferatu. (By the way, if anyone knows of a good still of that contract perused by Renfield in the latter, please let me know.)
You can also check out my Halloween party iMix. As with most mixes, it omits a great deal that iTunes does not have in its library, but it seems the essentials are present.
