halloween
Originally uploaded by Jeremy Dennis.
Well, no trick-or-treaters this year. The crack wrappers I find on my doorstep suggest to me that this is not that sort of area any more. So, eat your own halloween candy. No pumpkins or parties, just the pop-pop-pop of other people's fireworks. Celebrate Halloween by reading heavy books (Incubus Dreams, Jonathon Strange & Mr Norrell, Ritual Magic) and trying to crush 30 pages of story into 23 pages of comic for no real reason as I won't have the drive to do anything with it when I'm finished.

Oh look, my Report from Grrr! Comics festival has been published.

This morning's walk into work suggests that the problem with the foot may be the shoe.

EDIT: I think it's byebye to nanaimo, who's been sending me progressively shorter and shorter and less and less this last week or so. Goodbye, Spambot of my heart (it replies):

Halloween Bummer...
Yeh, it ain't what it was. I blame all the plastification and pricey junk-flogging in supermarkets, etc...Although those skull mugs & cereal bowls in ASDA are just so dreadful they're kinda cool... I didn't even feel much thinning of the veil last night, and fell doltishly asleep watching PLANET OF THE APES (God, I wasn't expecting it to be really that bad...
The INDY thing is way cool, especially the photos. Takes me right back. Thanks.

I don't know ...
I own quite a lot of skellingtons and bats and glow-in-the-dark whatsis ... Marks and Sparks had Halloween chandeliers, though, which I thought was taking it a bit far.

if you mean the guy
... well, lots of Serbian guys look like that. It is easy on the eye, isn't it? If it's the girl, that's Ellfriede, a German artist I ended up making many small pictures with.

(not all that many comics people have strangely coloured hair)

Re: if you mean the guy
MMMMmmm, Howard Moon! Me too!
And yes, lots of Serbian guys are hott. (Unfortunately, the women tend to be obscenely good-looking...)
Oh the unfairness of Life, etc.

Oo, nice music. Hadn't realised you were a Hefner/French fan.

me either
but, well ... I've been listening to a lot of old/tribute/memorial Peel Session stuff this week and they played Gabriel at the Airport and I was going to buy some music anyway so I got the album ... which was just as well as it had Porn Shoes on it which is now my current favourite song.

Thank you for the link and a nice, snappy report. It looks like it was a wonderful event and gave me much food for thought (and eyecandy).

For some reason, I can't get the Report to load up properly, and I only got to see a few pics. I'm missing out - bah!
The computer hates me no doubt, but from what I was able to see I now want to go to Grrr! next year too.

hmm,
might be worth going through from the main page http://www.indyworld.com/indy/ and seeing if that makes any difference . It is a very long page -- I was expecting it to be carved up a bit!

It's not just your area
We didn't have any trick-or-treaters either, and our area is infested with kids. I believe that parents who allow their children to go trick-or-treating are considered irresponsible. "Respectable" parents organise Halloween parties for the little monsters, complete with fireworks, candles and pumpkin carving for those added elements of danger. Still, if you really want a cute little urchin to turn up on your doorstep demanding sweets with menaces, then I'm sure we can arrange something....

so respectable!
... last year we got very little door-knockers with hovering supervising parents, which is quite my favourite combination. I had no sweets, so I gave them plastic caterpillars and glow-in-the-dark skulls. With a warning not to try eating them.
