OH GOODY! THANKSGIVING AND XMAS ARE COMING! UGH!

Aw MAN! You mean I have to wait another year for Halloween?! BOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Well, there ya go. At the very last minute, I decided to dress up for work, and TA-DAH! I went back in time to the decade where I'm sure I had a past life, the sixties man! How groovy! Make love not war! Get out of Ira...ER, Vietnam I mean! The overwhelming majority loved my costume. I got lots of laughs (must've been those amazing pants), and two idiots who had no idea what the hell I was. ARGH! Yes, some people can be really dense! I guess I came out a cross between Lennon and Hendrix. Not bad I'd say. As for Halloween night, I fizzled out not wanting to deal with driving/crowds or leaving the comfort of my home, so I stayed in and watched Halloween-based fare on TV. I may go to the West Hollywood Carnaval next year, since my fav holiday will fall on a Friday in 2008. PERFECT!

Yeah, so here come Thanksgiving and Xmas. Holidays I used to enjoy as a kid, but now kinda don't care for really. Turkey genocide man! And then Xmas comes around and television is littered with nothing but commercials to go out and spend your hard-earned cash! Frankly, I'm sick of that shit! The mall can kiss my ass! I'll still put up the Xmas tree though I suppose, so as to not be a complete Scrooge.

Oh yeah, The Nightmare Before Xmas in 3-D was really really enjoyable. I had not seen that movie since it first came out in 1993, and seeing it again in this new format recently was really great; made for some awesome visuals. I'd forgotten too how great the music for that little movie was. Danny Elfman (and Tim Burton of course) is a genius.

Yeah, it's a bummer Halloween is over. Now on to the worst time of year. I hate this season.
But I love the clothes, man. Really dig 'em.

Wow, I had the same costume a few years back. Looks good on you too. (P.S.: My departure video is now live. I'd forgotten to change it from private to public view on YouTube since I'd posted it there several days ago. Sorry!)

I used to have pink round glasses like that... used to take them out clubbing and everyone would say "why on earth d'you wanna take those out with you?!" but I would and then at 4am when everyone was high on E I caused quite a stir merely by walking by wearing them through the room... however in the late 90s by which time such round glasses were rather out of fash darling nobody reacted in this way and so I dumped them!

Really a no-brainer choice, sooo entirely you being that you are such a sixties-ophile. Groovy glasses, psychedelic look and... such a tall boy.

Did you raid my closet???? You look far-out, man!! Truly groovy.

alexgirl said...

Aaaah! WAT you look fantastic. I miss Halloween already. Sigh.
But I do love Thanksgiving and Xmas, don't hate me. I just love getting the fam together and playing games, eating, and drinking. That sounds lame, huh? Well, it's true!

Gavin Elster said...

Wow I kinda want to fuck you.

Great costume and you look fantastic in it. I did a theme park show many years ago and sang the title song from Hair in only jeans and a groovy vest that was hand made of cloth and would glow under the black lights. When the season was over I asked to keep the vest and they let me. So for years I was a hippie at Halloween (and whenever the mood struck me). I never had the funky glasses though.

kimy said...

that's a costume??

great post!

I think we need to take back the holidays from greedy grubby powers - when we do that maybe we won't have such widespread holiday angst!

Love the stache Wat. You seem to encompass everything there is about that era...

You almost passed as a porn star...

LOL
