My new Lps for Halloween!
Here’s a sample of a couple of these monster jams!
Wolf Call by Lord Dent and His Invaders
The Thing (Part II) by Curtis and the Creepers
The Guillotine by The Executioners
It’s gonna be a killer night!
You know, Rocktober wasn’t a total failure…I realize that now. I’ve been particularly hard on myself the past 31 days…worrying that no one was enjoying all the (mostly) hard work I was putting into my month long horror/metal celebration.
But that wasn’t the case at all.
The lovely and talented, Becca, over at No Smoking In The Skull Cave gave Rocktober, not one, but two separate shout-outs this month! If you haven’t checked out her awesome blog, do yourself a favor and peep it post haste! Just click the banner!
My favorite Auntie and Unkle even threw a parade in honor of Rocktober over at Kindertrauma…(well, that’s not totally true…there is a parade, but it’s the 1st Annual Kindertrauma Halloween Parade and has nothing to do with Rocktober…heh.) Thanks, boys! You’re the bestest!
Oh, I can’t forget The Wife! She stood by her man during the soaring highs and soul crushing lows of Rocktober…and even though I couldn’t find a way to work in Mike Schank for her, she definitely helped my Rocktober dreams come true with her suggestions, comments, and understanding.
I also gotta’ give a special thanks to my good buddy and inspirational coach, Steve. (Steve has no links…he is a private man…and a genius…seriously…he’s super smart.) Thanks, Steve, you’re always good for a swift kick in the pants area to get me back on track! You’re wicked awesome. Say hello to your family for me.
Alright! Let’s do this! It’s Halloween and that means it’s the 31st day of Rocktober!!!!
Today….One Man…Three bands…all metal…all horror…
That’s DANZIG, you chuckleheads!
First there was the horror punk of The Misfits!
Then there was the death rock of Samhain!
And finally, the dark metal-blues hybrid of Danzig!
Happy Halloween, fellow fiends! Thanks for sticking out Rocktober with me….now go eat some candy and watch a scary movie or two.
Best novelty song EVER.
Never will there be another Rocktober in my life…or yours.
Who wants to hear a song?
The video kind of sucks, but I still like the song.
See you tomorrow.
Yummy and spooky!

You know, I guess it’s just my need to finish what I started that’s kept the miserable failure that is Rocktober going. No matter how many friends tell The Wife how much they miss some old favorites of Awesomeness past…or how many work mates politely hint around that 31 days of one subject (they don’t give a shit about) doesn’t make for a good blog…
won’t quit, NO…I JUST CAN’T QUIT! NOT NOW! NOT EVER!
DO YOU HEAR ME, INTERNET! I DON’T CARE IF YOU HATE ROCKTOBER! I HAVE 3 FUCKING DAYS LEFT! AND YOU’RE JUST GOING TO HAVE TO KEEP IGNORING AWESOMENESS FOR AWESOME’S SAKE UNTIL I GET THIS WHOLE STUPID THEME OUT OF MY SYSTEM!
Whew. Sorry. So, uh, it’s the 29th day of Rocktober…and, uh, I guess, uh…here’s a video…or whatever.
Yeah…that was Lizzy Borden, uh, performing Psychopath…from, uh, their 1985 Lp…uh, Love You To Pieces…
