Happy Halloween

Halloween Party

Every year I help out a very little bit with my friend and neighbors Halloween front yard display, this year adding a couple of items and the soundtrack that will play over this ghoul child's room theme she had chosen. Happy Halloween and have a good night folks.

Road Trip

Salem, Boston and Marblehead... ahh the ocean! One of the cool things that happened was we got a great price on our hotel then since we asked for second floor unit they upgraded us no extra charge to a two story so I had my own room upstairs. We ended up staying longer.

and a shot from the Bunker Hill monument in Boston, a 300 or so spiral step climb straight up with a panoramic view at the top.

Salem and Boston

The last picture is of the house where Nathaniel Hawthorne's girlfriend lived and which he used for the basis of his story Dr. Grimshawe's Secret. Hawthorne said when he was sitting in the Grimshawe House by the fireplace a ghost walked in and sat in a chair beside him.


Apart from being a great zombie flick THE LIVING DEAD AT MANCHESTER MORGUE has a terrific soundtrack as well. I also watched the documentary on the proto-punk band Death which was as good as I hoped. Like many others I was blown away when this long lost album re-surfaced years ago and the story of the band is awesome and touching.

goodies.. the headstone cast was taken from the tombstone of Sarah Belknap who died the day after my birthday so I had to get it.

Witch House

Back from Salem, I'll try and post more photos/sketches at some point but its a pretty hectic month ahead. Salem/Boston/Marblehead were all fantastic tho, an amazing time.

Went to the Bowie is show at the AGO last week. A really wonderfully put together show of outfits, notebooks, videos, props, inspirations and more. Tho my favorite Bowie stuff pretty much ends with Scary Monsters the process stuff from later years was still very interesting. Recommended even if you are not a fan. My favorite period is the Berlin trilogy and seeing his use of cut up and other idea generating tools was cool inspired by Dada, Surrealism and Burroughs.
