"So He's a Ghost Story"

Well, Captain America DID call the Winter Soldier a "ghost story" the first time he heard about him, but these days Steve Rogers is carrying the analogy too far for Bucky's liking.

Even More Important Than Witches . . .

. . . are their CATS!


A witch is NOTHING without her familiars!


They always SET THE MOOD!


Their temperaments can VARY, so don't make ASSUMPTIONS.


A witch's cat can be JUST AS POWERFUL as its Mistress.


So a responsible witch must keep her familiars under
CLOSE SUPERVISION AND CONTROL at all times.

The Power of Film

This post does not necessarily concern Halloween themes, but nevertheless it seems an appropriate time of the year to pose the following question --


For me, the answer is immediate -- Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds. I saw it on TV when I was little and it scared the bejesus right out of me.


Like all of Hitchcock's movies, there was nothing excessively graphic or gory about the film, but the Master of Suspense made his audience visualize the terror and violence in their minds -- which is ten times worse!

More or less around the same time that I saw this movie (although I can't remember specifically if it was before or after), I developed a major phobia about things flying around my head. The causal incident was an ugly and traumatic episode with moths in a confined space which I could not escape. But this movie, regardless of when I actually saw it, certainly didn't help the situation.

This phobia still plagues me. I cannot set foot in a butterfly house at a zoo or botanical garden, nor can I tolerate any birds or other creatures flying around my head.

So what about you? Any movies that scarred you for life? Spill your guts in the comments (but not literally though, please) . . . .

Miscellany of Horror







Yeah, pretty tame, I know, but I'm not much of a horror buff. Sorry.

Fire Burn and Cauldron Bubble!


Now is the time of year when witches
emerge from every nook and cranny.
They reveal themselves in local community groups --

And work their magic in bars and restaurants --


Witches can meet up anywhere!


Membership is open to all!


Well, nearly all. Witches do have some standards.


And don't get on their bad side.


Ladies, the hour grows late!


See you at the Witching Hour!

Let Us Give Thanks


It's Canadian Thanksgiving today and time once again to count our many, many blessings!


Compared to historical living conditions, we are so fortunate to live when and where we do.


Even things we complain about should really be sources of gratitude.


And if you're a turkey getting a tarot reading, you have something to be grateful for, too. No, wait . . . April Fools!

Halloween Creepy Crawlies

Spiders do us humans a great service, actually.


But are we grateful?


It's enough to turn spiders off flies forever!
And then what are they gonna eat?


Some humans even genetically experiment with spiders,
like some kind of Frankenstein or something.


But is the result truly a fully functioning arachnid?


So can you blame spiders for occasionally
genetically experimenting with humans?


Let this be a lesson to us all.

What's This Spooky Thing Called Again?








And here's a bonus meme, just because I lurves me some Wolverine . . . .


Hey, don't blame me, you gotta expect some gore during Halloween month!
