Okay, as an added bonus, I also found this Supersuckers song. It's not really a video, but this song rages so hard, I couldn't pass it up. It's called "Someday I Will Kill You." Anybody know where I can find it??
UPDATE!! The previous song can be found on their release wonderfully entitled "Motherf*ckers Be Trippin'" on Mid-Fi Records. And because I'm in such a great mood tonight, I also present "Bloody Mary Mornin'" If your feet aren't tapping for this one, you better call a doctor...
For those of you that don't know about Etsy.com, the site dedicated to buying and selling handmade crafts, here are some unique Halloween items I found yesterday (my first visit). First were these aged skull gift tags.
And thumbs up to the seller of this Edgar Allen Poe cemetery dirt art bottle. The background is creepy and reminds of my walk through the abandoned tuberculosis ward at the Ridges in Athens, Ohio (except there I was surrounded by human feces and varmint, not famous poet remains).
Quite a good first impression; I can't wait to kill more time searching this site for Halloween treasures!

Keep your eyes open for my next post. I'll be spending a weekend at the haunted Lucerne Inn in Bar Harbor, Maine!
I used Gorilla Glue to attach the skull to the recessed area and added some spackle plaster to the outer front edge.
Next was the fun part: the epitaph. I had always wanted to pay homage to my favorite classic horror actor so I got all of his information, found a great gothic font, did the layout, 11" x 17" printouts and trimmed out the letters (remember to leave an area attached on your A's, B's, D'd, O's, P's, Q's, R's, 4's, 6's, 8's, 9's and 0's, or else you'll cut the inner area out!) to form stencils. I laid the stencils onto the tombstone face and traced the edges with a sharpie marker. With the smallest lettering, I actually just filled the letters in with the marker.
I then went back and filled in the larger letters with some flat black latex paint. Almost done!!
I really wanted to give this stone an extra zing, so I got some red LED lights from deadheadprops on Ebay. They're cheap and they're bright. And they run off of a standard 9 volt battery. I added a section of drinking straw to both lights, slightly longer than the width of the tombstone (I taped them in place with electrical tape). This would give me the rigid "tube" sections I would need so that they would hold when they were threaded into the foam stone.
Happy Friday the 13th everybody!
