Just a heads up.

Get it?
Welcome, welcome.
I'm your humble pubkeep, Mike C.
I design, build, paint, sculpt, carve, glue, bolt, sing, play, record, program and otherwise bring to life many Hallowe'eny, monstery creations!
And this little pub is where we Autumn People hang out.
I am so happy and humbled to discover that I have garnered some loyal patrons who've only recently shambled into the Skull & Pumpkin and discovered its charms.

A Hallowelcome to all of you!

I thought it might be a good idea to introduce any new guests just in from the breezy evening sidewalks outside, to the 'regulars', the constants of this fine little pub.

For a full appreciation of what this place is about, who we are, and what in the world 'Dumdumshrekpop!' means (and why it's all over the blog), make sure to read these posts:

1. Kindly step all the way in, please

2. Hallowe'en Mike C. Style
3. The What & Whoozits?
4. Long Ago & Far Away, the first part
5. Long Ago & Far Away, the second part
6. Long Ago & Far Away, the third part
5. Really? Already? SWEET! (explains DDSP half way down)

... and when you get time, just about everything in the 'homemade' and 'animatronics' categories.

There'll be a test in the morning.

Of course, you are not at all obliged to do any of that. Feel free to just explore at your own pace... and please visit any time. There's a lot to see, and the S&P is nothing without good October people resting their bones and raising a glass to the finest time of the year.


  1. Why thank you! That was a lot of fun reading those posts. I realize that there are more crazy (I mean that in a good way) Halloween people out there than I thought! :D Great blog! (wish I would have found you sooner, so thanks for the links!)

    Thanks for sharing. Looking forwar to your creations for this year.


  2. Hop on in anytime, your majesty!

  3. This is a great site! This and the Universal Monster Army are my favorite sites!

  4. You new visitors are in for a treat. The proprietor is NUTS! And I mean that in the kindest way.

    And Mike, I love what you have done with the place. Homey as ever,but the new decor adds that certain undefinable whoozits!

    In honor of Mike and The Skull and Pumpkin, the next round is on me!



  5. I am so happy to have found you today and cannot believe I didn't know you were here before.

    I shall play catch up now by reading the aforementioned posts.

  6. Where have you been all my life?! I think I'll belly up to the bar and stay a while.

  7. You are welcome to stay forever, Ghoulie! Fester's buying a round anyway, and I say drinks on the house for you the rest of the month. Get to know the place!

  8. What a great blog! I am definitely a heart-and-soul autumn person, so I am glad I found you!

  9. Cheers to having a whoot on halloween.
