A personal message on this most auspicious day!
A little bit of musical paleo fun (hat tip to Mr. Weitzenhoffer):
For those unfamiliar the video for the original “Party Rock Anthem” by LMFAO can be found here.
You may want to wash this one before you wear it, it looks a little funky:
Yes, Evo-T’s is breaking out of the text only genre and moving into the world of graphics. Our first offering is a stylized germ (an original creation by yours truly) in both black (pictured above) for lighter colored shirts and white for darker ones. As always there are both men’s and women’s cuts available.
A percentage of every purchase goes towards keeping this blog running and keeping my lights turned on.
So give a hoot and buy a dang shirt! You won’t care much for the alternative…
Special thanks to my brother-in-law, George Pizarro, for helping clean up my pencil drawing into a presentable computer graphic image!
Actress & comedian Julia Sweeney gives a very funny account of when her eight year old daughter asked her about the facts of sexual reproduction.
However it is not merely a pigeon that has shuffled off its mortal coil, tis a late pigeon that was once studied by Charles Darwin (Natural History Museum at Tring, Hertfordshire, England), making its image being shared here a matter of course. Photograph by Annie Leibovitz.

Not my cup of tea* musically but fun just the same:

*technically no cup of tea is my cup of tea, as I loathe tea.
Well this year was a lot less stressful than last year, though it was still stressful and a lot of work (for one person). But I got most of what I wanted up and dressed, though a few detail were missed (my fog machine chose to fail for example) and it can always be better. Likewise the trick-or-treat level was OK for our neighborhood but I would still like to get a lot more traffic (I failed to get the yard haunt signs up at the ends of our street, which might have helped).
Anyway here are some pictures; I’ll start with the ones shot in low light to give you an idea of the desired look and then give a few shots with the flash so you can see more detail. Unfortunately I didn’t have a tripod or the photographic skills to get really good low-like pics (maybe next year). Click on the pictures for larger versions.
This year I brought my guillotine outside and put it front so the kids had to walk by it to enter the graveyard on their way to the front door.
