Happy Halloween

I'm a little early, but hey, it's one of my favorite holidays. Always has been. When I was a kid, I'd dress up twice and hit the houses in my neighborhood two times. At least the good ones. I lived in a very safe, enclosed neighborhood, and some of the people there went all out at Halloween. There were always three or four big haunted houses, with one guy going so far as to dig graves in his frontyard so he and his older kids could pop out of the ground in zombie gear. The spookiest house on the block was a big Victorian home with a large fountain in the courtyard, in which they'd put dry ice. The owner would dress up in his best vampire outfit, his wife in an Elvira get-up, and they'd lead groups of us nervous kids into their living room for a show and tell with all sort of gooey eyeballs and rat's tails and monster brains. We were never worried that anything untoward was going to happen. It was a safe place, a safe time. Grown-ups were everywhere, keeping an eye on things, and there really was no fear. Just hours of spooky fun. The times sure have changed...

2000 Miles

Some songs from that year when we all breathed a huge sigh of relief because the world did not come to an end on New Year's Eve 1999. 2000 was our last good year, before we put a monkey in the White House and discovered what a War On Terror would cost us.

Ha! I only got to C on iTunes before my eyes glazed over and I realized it's 3 in the freakin' morning. Go to bed, idiot!

Maybe next time you'll get more tunes.

As always, seek out and buy the CDS.
