Happy early hollow weenie!
I love Halloween. The smell of the air (smoke, leaves and the promise of winter), the little kids running around having fun, the smell of blood on my hands and the fear in the eyes of my sacrifice to the dark lord. Candy too. Candy is good. Yep, all hallows eve is a great holiday. The souls of the dead pouring through a portal, fairies playing pranks and my favorite Samhain cd playing the background. Oh and Snickers. Kit-Kats too. Love those things. Ohhh corporate monetization of holidays/beliefs, you so cray cray.
I've always loved this one.
Anyone been playing any horror games? I've been digging back into Dead Space 2 and had forgotten just how good the sound was in that one. Did they win any awards for that? They should have. Fantastic audio and a great game. I love how gory and truly horrifying the creature design is too. It reminds of Guillermo Del Toro's stuff. Human, yet alien at the same time. Stuff that just hits a nerve. Ugh, those babies. *shivers*
What else..... eh, I got nothing, have some caps.

Well that wraps it up for me, your gracious host and possible psycho. Have a safe Halloween and send me any razors you find your candy. I need them. Oh and would someone please punch that one asshole who gives out healthy food. You know the fuck bag I speak of. I'm sorry but I don't let my kids eat for shit and you wanna push your hippie bullshit on me tonight? On fucking Halloween? Ever since I had kids that's been pissing me off. At least have an extra bowl of real candy for the kids who aren't fat pigs.
