It is September.
The end of Summer, the beginning of the greatest season of the blessed year.
Not that a real Hallowe'en has to be made -- Hallowe'en happens all by its glorious self -- but for we haunting types, September is the deadline month, the time of do-or-die, of now-or-never, of damnit-where's-that-glue-gun-and-why-haven't-you-been-to-storage-yet?
But this year, I am sort of combining September with October... though I suppose for true Hallowe'en types they're sort of the same long, lovely month anyway.
I could call it 'Septober,' but that's kind of lame and besides, it's already a Martian word -- when it is December on Earth, it is Septober on Mars. Just ask Chochem.
But for the beginning of Septob -- ah-ha! almost got me doing it, darn you! -- September, I think a visit with dear old friends is needed.
For your enjoyment and edification, the Skull & Pumpkin presents the entire 1967 original motion picture soundtrack from our beloved Rankin/Bass favorite, Mad Monster Party!
Oh, such mad monstery music...
Much like your very life, it won't be available forever, so enjoy it while you may.
And what's coming up next on the jukebox?
Much like your very afterlife... who the Hell knows?
There is more Hallowe'en-making mayhem to come.
