Happy Halloween, everyone! Today’s edition of the In The Sphere focuses on the popular traditions of this wonderfully ghoulish day, so let’s have at it.
Halloween starts with a good costume, so Hummingbird604 asks if you have decided on your Halloween costume yet. That was a couple of days ago and if you’re still on the hunt for a creative character this year, you’re seriously running out of time. Be sure to check out the comments on that post to see if you can find some inspiration.
To the younger kids in the audience (and to the kids in all of us), Halloween is all about satisfying that sweet tooth. Long Countdown has been largely deprived of chocolate treats, because Japan only has three different kinds of candybars in stores. Thankfully, Nick has received a ton of chocolate through the post from his dear mum in England. Schedule that dentist appointment now!
Today can be quite a frightening day and the What If Blog follows that trend by asking you to consider if vampires watched from the shadows. Can you imagine if those well-dressed bloodsuckers were lurking in your closet, waiting for an opportunity to pounce and bite into your neck? If they are there, I’d prefer the classy vampires in Interview with the Vampire over the insane hybrid monsters introduced in Blade.
Creativity takes on all forms. You could spend a fortune on a great costume or you could take the route of Tyler Ingram and simply carve up a stellar collection of Jack-O-Lanterns. Personally, I think Robyn’s pumpkin looks better than Tyler’s, but that is still quite the collection. Be sure to check out his Flickr album for more pumpkin carvings.
What’s the scariest thing in the world? Is it a werewolf? A zombie? Michael Jackson? Maybe it’s when you turn to Mostly Lisa to discuss Madonna’s insistence to avoid pants. At what point is that woman going to act her age?! Then again, she could quite possibly be in the best shape of her life. Are you disturbed by Madonna’s legs?
