just like a lot of white kids my age who grew up in the suburbs, hearing michael jackson's thriller meant one thing and one thing only; it's fucking halloween. i remember going trick or treating and every bloody house on the block would be blasting this from their kitchen windows and ghetto blasters. as a matter of fact, the video used to terrify me as a child. still give me the creeps to watch it, too. the vincent price part? comon! so as i sit here in my living room, listening to thriller on the radio, i now know it's finally arrived; halloween is mother fucking here. 

erin simkin
earlier this month, my dj partner lindsay and i had a killer day shooting with our wildly talented photographer gal pal erin simkin for some new bangs & blush promo shots! not only is this girl insanely genius when it comes to her over-all visual concepts, but she's a super rad chick on top of that. we're incredibly happy with our final images, and you will be seeing more of them very soon! but here's your first little taste, and you can see more at the Bangs & Blush Blog!

halloween crap from dollarama
i think i wrote last week about how much i love dollarama for halloween stuff; the amount of stuff i got to decorate with for $50 is insane. and i'm excited because i finally get to use it all tomorrow night at shake rattle & roll! you have no idea how many different types of halloween streamers are manufactured; is there a goddamn factory for halloween streamers? "halloween streamers and co."? shut the front door.

 pumpkin carving
last time i carved a pumpkin, it looked like this. 

 civil twilight by the weakerthans
every time i hear this song it takes me back to when i was about 16, 17. those were some solid years. brings back memories and over-all makes me feel warm inside. love the weakerthans!

phil darling's skunk costume
thank you for this, lindsay darling.


ten days until halloween!
the british are coming! the british are com-...eugh, um, halloween is coming... speaking of coming, i'm still coming down from all the neocitran. anyways, i can't believe halloween is only ten days away! this has been the weirdest halloween for me ever so far because jesse and i don't have cable; because of this, i haven't been able to enjoy all of the traditional tv show episodes/tv movies that are in constant circulation during this time of the year. i miss my tree house of horror episodes! all of the halloween/freddy/scream movies! the turner classic movie showings of all the original frankenstein's, dracula's and other creature features! and mostly; beetlejuice cartoon re-runs. but that's okay, i've already spent over $50 at dollarama on halloween crap; do you have any idea how much fifty bones gets you at dollarama? my costume is almost done as well, but still needs work. none the less, my pumpkins will be carved soon and my big bangs & blush halloween party is next saturday! i can't wait!
joe fresh sweaters
finally hit up the new joe fresh on queen west last week and got myself some amazing sweaters. they always fit so comfortably, made with quality thickness and stitching and i mix and match them with everything in my wardrobe. i've been wearing them nearly every day for a week now. please don't repeat that.
go go go joe!
jesse and i have spent the last 5 days, since saturday to be exact, in bed pretty much nearly all day. coughs, runny noses, hot/cold sweats, body aches, you name it, we had it! but that motherfuckin' neocitran takes you to a drugged out far off land of painlessness and body warmth. makes you sleep like a tranquilized bear, too.
way too much of this.
finally getting an iphone
it happened! it's awesome!

jesse (again)
good lovey bear hugs for me.

turkey subs
i fucking love turkey subs. personally, there's nothing better than a home made turkey sandwhich/sub, but on the go it's my favorite fast food snack. and there's something about my strange habit with sub toppings; this what i usually get on my sub: lettuce, tomato, onion, black and green olives (and lots of them), and barbecue sauce. seriously, have you ever had olives on a sub before? it'll change your life; try it.
"i'll have that as a combo. thanks."
the new slew of poster designs by yours truly


i've been sitting here laughing at this for quite some time, now.
