Halloween is such a fun holiday. I'm not real nuts about super scary modern stuff. I like the deep rooted superstitions and festitivities. my favorite traditions and decorations are those from the turn of the 19th to 20th century. I collect the postcards like the one above and I make reproductions of the decorations complete with tinsel, crepe and german glitter glass. Once of the traditions I especially love is the one about how if a single woman looks in the mirror at the stroke of midnight brushing her hair and eating an apple by candlelight, she will see her true love reflected in the mirror. that's a lot of stuff to do to see a dude but I love it. there are tons of old postcards portraying this.
colonial traditions and early american traditions are fun as well. I swear I could totally do a master's dissertation on the history and traditions of Halloween. I love it.
however you celebrate Halloween, enjoy!

I wish I could watch the Dracula TV series that was on in the late eighties early nineties. that was campy but awesome. it had a very young Mia Kirschner in it. Google the series. if anything it's worth the campy laugh.

speaking of stan smith...I got stan smith II back from the Super Cool Bike Store today. yes that is its epic name and they are indeed epic. I can't wait to ride stan. hopefully when I am on stan I'll be able to come up with some interesting ideas for my mss. today on the interstate I got quite a few. two characters had an entire conversation and a scene played out. that was awesome. what wasn't so awesome was I was driving and had to try and recall it when I got home. that's the down side when those things happen. if you are in an inconvenient place you had better remember it or it's gone.
