What To Wear On Halloween?

Thanks to My most favoritest Auntie and Unkle over at KINDERTRAUMA, I have found the perfect costume for myself this year! That’s it, right there on your left! Isn’t it the most awesome thing you’ve ever seen?

I’ve expressed my love for William Friedkin‘s CRUISING for decades…and I never knew they actually made a Halloween costume for deep, deep, and I do mean deep, undercover officer, Steve Burns!

Oh, and get this, it has assless chaps! Super-sweet!

Since I don’t have a time machine to zap myself back to a Woolworth’s in 1980, I guess I’ll be trolling ebay for the best Halloween costume ever made! And to think I was going to be an Indian this year…

What are you guys going as this year? Need some ideas? Be sure to check out the rest of The 10 Worst Halloween Costumes only at Kindertrauma, of course!

Rocktober! Day 9

So before we get to today’s Rocktober video, I thought we should discuss Jon Mikl Thor.

Thor’s a strange one. I mean, it’s like he’s three different people or something.

I know this post is a bit link heavy (what else is new?), but I suggest you click through to really get a feel for today’s subject…

There’s 70s mustache and cape Thor…who seriously rules.

There’s the card carrying member of the Society for Creative Anachronism mid 80s Thor…who totally rules.

And then there’s Extreme Sports 2000 Thor…who kind of bums me out…but we can’t stay young forever and you can’t beat the song title, “Devastation of Musculation“, so that’s cool.

Okay, I think we’re ready to get to it! The brave souls at Synapse Films were daring enough to reissue the 1985 horror/metal movie, ROCK ‘N’ ROLL NIGHTMARE!

Here’s the plot according to Synapse:

A hot new rock group… their sexy young girlfriends… It should’ve been the best time of their lives, but it ended up being a ROCK ‘N’ ROLL NIGHTMARE!

Recording some new music in an isolated farmhouse, the band Triton gets more than they bargained for when something horrifying stirs in the darkness. Eternal evil haunts this place and the band members start turning into demons from Hell itself! After a day of making music – and making love – this band is starting to break up… one by one… limb by limb. The bands lead singer, John (Jon-Mikl Thor) Triton, holds the key to defeating this horror once and for all – a secret that culminates in a battle between good and evil! Triton versus the Devil himself!

You see? Rock group…eternal evil…The Devil…himself….Sounds like we have a winner for Rocktober Day 9!

So…uh…here’s the video for “We Accept The Challenge“:
