Favorite Holiday

 I still want to make these pumpkins. Yes, I am 100%  aware that making these tomorrow is like wear white after Labor Day. So what if they turn up for Thanksgiving instead of today...

Monster Mash #28: Werewolves

My friend Michelle Christensen Bullough is an brilliant illustrator who seems to love Halloween as much as me! Check out her blog for some All Hallows gems like THIS:
This is Halloween.

Lemongrab. Oh you.

It's no secret that I truly love Adventure Time. Lately, Lemongrab's catch-phrase has been on repeat in my head:

Monster Mash #25


Monster Mash #24


This SERIOUSLY scares the (I am going to say this like my grandmother right now) living daylights out of me. But I. Can't. Look. Away.

Monster Mash #22

1. Frankenweenie, an added bonus because REALLY we went just to see Andrew Glenn propose to his lady with a movie trailer. Needless to say, I cried buckets from the sweetness and truth that Andrew put into this proposal. I am so happy for my friend!
2. FEAR FACTORY. A haunted house with exceptional set dressing... but sadly lacking in actors/acting. I meowed at a leather-faced chainsaw fellow. Will they ever learn? Not all small girls hide behind a boy. But overall, kudos Fear Factory people.

Monster Mash: Zombie Time

I hate running. Yesterday I full on sprinted for 3.5 minutes carrying a laptop and five books to the train. I think my  lungs started bleeding.Thank UTA. I much prefer swimming lon repeat aps while my mind plays Queen songs or using the Elliptical in front of the Food Network (or beastly reality TV that I normally avoid aka Talentless Hacks The Kardashians or Sad Orange People Jersey Shore) think that the only time I am best friends with running is when I am running out of the basement away from velociraptors (ages 9-19... who am I kidding. That basement is still FULL of velociraptors. Thanks, Jurassic Park). I think that this principle can be applied to that future time when zombies inherit the earth and I MUST run to survive. Which is why I was excited when I found out about the 'ZOMBIES, RUN!' App... finally, a way to motivate me, really motivate me.

Haute Macabre says: " Zombies, Run! is an interactive iPhone game (out on Android shortly) that lets you play out a post-apocalyptic zombie scenario (presented in radio play format) as you jog."

Let the sweating begin.

Monster Mash #13 The Creature


This is what I think.

I'm not usually one to be political or stand up and be topical... I don't like to cause a scene or provide a means for contention. I'm known for my ability to duck behind pillars to avoid awkward moments and impassioned exes. But maybe, just maybe I'm getting better/care less. So I'm posting something that has really touched my heart and brought some solidification to my own beliefs, a speech made by abortion survivor, Gianna Jessen. Whether or not you agree with me on this one, please watch (both sections) and maybe let your heart soften and your mind be opened.

It's October again... my favorite month of all the months and you know the drill: a monster per day. MONSTER MONTH HAS BEGUN.
