Lights in the Dark...

Hello Lovelies!

Well, I hope this post finds you all doing well. Things here are really busy as usual, in a good way of course. I am getting the last few things finished up for the Picnic Art Show this Saturday in Portland, Maine. I am making the booth look like a carnival tent complete with sawdust and peanuts! I've found some neat old boxes and barrels to hold everything and more surprises to come because I'll take photos of course. Come if you can!

All the preparation hasn't kept me from putting some new photography up in the shop. The 3 pieces below are entitled Neosho Nougat, Chicago Coin Carnival and Grapevine Hair respectively. Grapvine would go well with the other faces of various types I have in the shop. (Can you tell they're my favorite?) That and neon, and there's more of that on the way too! Oh, and I just started offering different print sizes for all of my photography so you can get the weirdness poster size now! ;)

And the buttons have arrived! I will post those this weekend, they're very cute.

Now on to some good discoveries for you Lambs. First, some of you may have seen the cult classic Carnival of Souls about a woman who dies in a car accident and then wanders through the whole movie as a ghost or whatever. Well, the creepiest aspect of the movie centers around a huge abandoned amusement park on the water. A little trivia for you, this park is called Saltair and it's located in Utah. Unfortunately, the websites on this park basically suck and it looks like they've restored it, but I've dug up a few good shots for you and it's still really odd and creepy in my opinion, thus, I'm passing it on to you Kids.

And speaking of creepy, how about a movie review? It's been awhile so here goes... If you haven't had the pleasure of seeing Black Xmas yet, you're really missing out folks. (The "X" is meant to differentiate it from the 1974 "classic" Black Christmas... riiight.) So, the basic plot centers around a sorority house (of course) full of moody horribly poor actors. As they guzzle booze and cat fight, the neighborhood insane asylum goes one loony short. Pour into a pan and bake folks because we all know what's coming. That's right, murder and lots of it! From suffocations to stabbings to getting baked in the oven and eaten like a gingerbread man, what this movie lacks in plot/acting/budget it makes up for in gore so of course... I'm giving it 5 full corn cobs. Check it out if you have a free night. ;) (And I'm not sure why she's missing her eyes down there, I don't think that happened in the movie...)

Until next time: unpleasant dreams...

I really liked the original Black Christmas, but haven't seen the remake. I'll have to throw it on my Netflix cue for October Horror Movie Marathon Month.

I'm easily scared. That movie poster was so freaky to me that I had to cover it with my hand while I read the rest of your blog post. Great blog! :)

MAB: Put it on the list... hahaha.
Alicia: I'm sorry, I didn't want to freak anyone out. But that IS pretty funny about you having it cover it up to finish reading. :)
