Happy Halloween! Almost!
Here’s a giant compilation of spooky TV commercials to put your head in the right place:
Enjoy! Consider this a Free-For-All Halloween Thread, too. Talk about anything!
It’s Halloween weekend! I mean, not really, but technically?
Halloween falling on a Thursday is rough, but I’ve also gotten the impression that many folks have already gotten “their fill.” And that’s… fine? We always want the action to keep ramping up, but on the other hand, we’ve already gotten two full months to revel in spooky nonsense. It’s not like there are hard and fast rules to any of this stuff, so long as you’re having fun. “Halloweening” isn’t a job, y’know? Do what feels right for you!
That said, I’m gonna keep on keepin’ on until the 31st. I’m working on the third (and final) edition of 2019’s Best Halloween Junk Food, which’ll hit the site tomorrow, and then will do a few more pieces next week. For now, let’s watch a movie and be merry! (Not that kind of merry. Not until next weekend, at least!)
Here’s Poltergeist III, which for whatever reason is currently streaming for free on YouTube. I’ve never seen this one, but I suspect that it’s a pretty good choice for Halloween weekend!
Let’s add a SURVEY tonight, too:
Have YOU had any experiences with ghosts, UFOs or strange monsters? Share your stories, in the comments. Even if they’re about things you used to believe but no longer do.
I only have a minute to spare tonight, so take it away, Fat Boys!
Here’s the Fat Boys with Are You Ready For Freddy? I love this song so much.
Jeez, you can find anything on YouTube…
Here’s UFO Cover-Up? Live, a 1988 television special hosted by Mike Farrell of M*A*S*H fame. It’s about aliens, duh. I’m such a sucker for this stuff, and this is a waaaaaay obscure special that I’m guessing most of you have never seen. (I just covered a promo for it on the main page, too!)
Since we just talked about it on the latest Purple Stuff Podcast, tonight’s pick was only fitting:
Here’s an episode of The Super Mario Bros. Super Show wherein Mario and Luigi meet DRACULA. (Count Zoltan Dracula, to be exact.)
It’s enormously cheesy and I love every second of it. I really need to binge this series at some point. I’ve seen almost every episode, but it’s been so long that I barely remember the parade of insane guest stars. Enjoy!
