I'm here, hanging out, y'all.
Where is everyone sis?
Just waiting for you Adsila
It's springtime! It's a very slow time in the blog world. I am not surprised. It's usually the hot part of summer before they rush back on again.
Awww thanks Barry. It is also Earth Day and Good Friday and some people probably have plans. Not me of course.
I visited my veggie garden on my patio today and fed it some happy fertilizer. I'm growing black heirloom tomatoes, herbs, zucchini and white eggplant.
You are not worried about the critters getting your herbs?
So far, no prarie dogs or bunnies, but everything is up on high shelving. I have room for even more. I think this fall I'll add a pot with a dwarf tangerine tree and maybe a dwarf pomegranate.
"Call me the American Nightmare, Call me the American Dream, Call me Your Soul Corrupted!"Howdy to you Autumn!
Hi-de-ho, neighbors!I am now officially unemployed... and there's not even any freelance projects on the horizon. So, I'll be hanging out on Friday nights. :)
Hey HN! You got me so excited about The Fog that it's in my VCR right now. Yes, I still have it on VHS! Haha. I don't know why, but I'm nostalgic about seeing it that way. I'm about ready to hit the "go" button!
Steve;That sucks! What kind of work were you doing?
Tell me, Autumn, did you see the prop Pumpkinrot built? It's a replica of the Ghost of Blake from "Fog". It's pretty effing awesome! There are some pretty cool pics on his blog right now.
Managing an office and its staff. Scheduling, payroll, bitchy clients, stuff like that. It was strictly a short-term thing, but I'd hoped to have something else lined up by the time it ended.
HN;Did I miss something??? I know pumpkinrot is at www.pumpkinrot.com but he has a blog? How did I not know that?
Steve;Well, life has a funny way of making us make change before we're ready. I'm certain you have a skill set that should land you something else. Have you ever worked with temp agencies? I did that for 3 years and it was a good gig,actually. How is the writing going?
Yep, just click the "What's Brewing" button.
Hahaha--HN! I never knew that! Every time I go on there, I avoid that button because I think he's just make pumpkin beer. Har har
Sorry, make that just "Brewing".
Yeah, I can't remember the last time he endorsed a pumpkin booze.
I just added him to my blog list. Jeez, I feel out of the loop. Is it possible that a person can be so talented it brings tears to your eyes? If I could have a wish, I would say "screw it castles and haunted famous places" just let me hang around his place for a week and that would be my dream vacation--in the autumn time, camping outside with the props, wandering in the moonlight amongst them, lighting a bonfire. Oh man, that would be my last dying wish.
Tried the temp agency thing once about ten years ago, but they kept sending me to do telemarketing. Not my thing.As for the writing, two recent book proposals have gone nowhere, but I'm probably going to finally finish a couple of revision projects that have been fallow for a while. They should earn me a few pennies as ebooks, given their humor roleplaying games. (A tiny segment of an already small market.)
Steve;Email me. firstname.lastname@example.org I think I can help you a lot with marketing your ebooks. We're in the same boat and I think you could seriously hit your market. Two heads are better than one.
Is it wrong to say I want to live in the world of the Corn Witch (his 2009 haunt)?
Autumn, Will do!Now I'm off to eat dinner: Curry beef with carrots and rice. Have fun all!
Nope--I'd like to be with the bayou/swamp one! That video he did, though--that was something I wanted to jump right into! I was sooooo fascinated with it. It was a world I only dreamed of. I wish he made short movies. He should stumble the pictures of his stuff on tumblr and he'd get so many reblogs on it! I just put an ad button up for him on my blog because he really is my favorite halloween artist in all the world. He gives us hope for those who love the season. I dream of living a life like that, surrounded by creepy things in my house and yard, writing horror stories...
Have a good one, Steve!
Sounds like a good dream. Me, I'll be content if I get to keep making stuff for Halloween.
Sorry I had to take care of the hubby *wink*
Yeah. I know what you mean. I'm so busy writing my horror, I don't have time to make a good horror spot. I want to horror-up my apartment more. The cool thing about having my own place is that I no longer have to keep it in model-house showcase condition. I can insert myself into it. I'd like to get long lengths of rusty chain and rusted farm implements to hang overhead.
Wow, sis, that was quick. You are ever efficient.
I've gotten a whole bunch of really cool Halloween-themed art work to hang on the walls of lair, including a "Trick 'r Treat" poster!
On a side note, I'm dead tired, and I'm off to bed. 'night, Autumn!
HN;I want to hear more about the decorating of the lair later. G'night
LOL he was on a schedule. I am going to scan the cable channels to see what is on tonight.
I'm watching the end of "Scream" (the original). I was in the mood for it and then I'm putting on "The Fog." Yahoo! GA is running in a marathon tonight.
When we buy a house it will be decorated with cool old furniture. My room will have a western Steampunk look to it.
I love that!!! I am having a hard time figuring out how to coordinate my Ikea home with horror, but I might concentrate the horror in one room. I still want the vampire mannequins in costumes! I want to find Dale a 3-month old baby's outfit that looks Victorian steampunk. We must invent his costume! He'd be a cool sidekick if he looks steampunk, wouldn't he? He needs a hat too.
Watching GA right now they are at the Stanley Hotel
I missed that one. Was it any good? It'll be on here, but not until about 9
Zak got to play with an axe and we all learned what Aaron's snores sound like lol
Seriously? No screaming like girls and running? No Zak trying to entice a girl (or guy) ghost into his bed?
Definitely Dale in Steampunk clothes. I made put his picture in one of my crafts. You can turn your office into a horror room.
He would look very creepy in one of our crafts with a little hat and all. We are going to have to do a little online shopping for him. I'll send you pics and you help me choose his new look. He's going to hate it, which will make it even more fun. I wonder if we can get him a monocle?
Would we see Zak any other way but screaming like a girl, LOL?
I had an idea for a parody of Zak. I will be putting that up soon on the blog. Hee hee
Dale might like the Steampunk look. He will probably will think he is too cool and be even harder to live with.
This is true, but still, he has to wear baby clothes which always pisses him off.
He may take on a biker hardass personality with his new Steampunk clothes. You should let him get a tattoo, LOL.
That is oh so tempting. He's way too squeaky clean for me and I'd like to make him disturbing like the other dolls...
I guess that might be a little too much like Chucky. We shall find him some cool new clothes to wear for his new singing gig.
Yeah. I do like the idea of a hat. He could use sunglasses too. They make those baby ones with a strap on them that holds them on. Then his creepy eyes won't stare. Maybe he should go on the next road trip, huh? Should I play the old "happens to be in the trunk" trick on our car ride partners?
Yea take him on our trip to Tombstone. The ghosties in our room will love him.
I think it might freak everyone else which makes it even more fun. He needs just the right duds. I gotta start searching...
Tombstone is a western town, so dress him either like a sheriff or outlaw.
Holy shit! Can you see him in the little boots and vest and hat? That's ideal for AZ!
Dale the shit-kicking doll.
I found a woody costume from Toy story! haha
I don't know. I'd like him to wear something less babyish and more like those little genuine costumes. Hmm...
You could go crazy at Dale's expense, haha!
The baby costumes crack me up--a tootsie roll, a sunflower... haha I actually want to make him disturbing cool and edgy.
Those will do it..... ha
Oh yes, he would look wonderful in poses. Can you imagine his expression while wearing a lion costume?
Mad as hell and not going to take it anymore. He will definitely plot an evil plan of revenge.
Remember his expression at Hotel Vendome when we left him propped against the door to the haunted closet? Hee hee. I swear he has expressions.
Yeah he went from happy to scared when you sat him by the door. That scared me.
Imagine what his anger looks like.
I don't want to see that.
Yeah. I figure we make him look either very preppy like an Intel employee with khakis and an izod and sunglasses or we put him in full-out cowboy with hat and boots. Oh, I have a great idea! I'll find the outfits, post them on the blog and let everyone vote!
Bingo, that is a great idea.
Haha. I never thought I'd shop for a baby again. This is fun!
Technically he is your baby.
I don't claim him. He certainly doesn't take after me. Well, perhaps the dollie porn filming. I could see me doing that. Well, I could also see me hiding the knives at Halloween. I could see me filming myself while sleeping. Oh hell! He's just like me (wink)
Yep. He even has red hair, haha!
Creepy, huh? I'm thinking he might look good as a hipster with a fedora...
If you can swing it, get him a couple of fun costumes.
I decided--definitely hipster. An untucked silk bowling shirt and a panama hat--he'll look like he should be in vegas.
Viva Los Vegas! And on that note I wish you a good night. I am getting tired..... night Sis
G'night Sis! Anyone else, I'm still up.
Hey Autumn! They say Banana Republic has clothes in Dale's size.
Seriously--gotta check that out!
Hey Autumn! Sorry I missed ya tonight :( I had to help out a photographer with a family shoot. I'm a pro at holding reflectors now :-pAnyways, I sent you an e-mail (Hopefully it's your current one), and I was really hoping you could get back to me on that one :) Hope everythings going well :-D
