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.
