A PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT

AS YOU KNOW, HALLOWEEN IS A BIG THING IN MY LITTLE WORLD

and I usually like to participate in the yearly COUNTDOWN TO HALLOWEEN blogathon.  Perhaps you were wondering if I was going to this year.  Well, the answer is yes . . . and no.  Yes, in that my audio blog BATHED IN THE LIGHT FROM ANDROMEDA will indeed be officially participating by posting Halloween songs every day in October.  However, due to circumstances beyond my console, I can't commit to this here blog's usual participation in the manner to which I would like.  For a good idea of what I would like to do, click on the archive over on the right for "October 2011" to see what I did last year. 

Now, having said that, I'm not going to abandon you all.  In fact, I WILL try to due a mini-Halloween Countdown -- sort of a COUNTDOWN TO HALLOWEEN LITE, I guess.  While I can't know if I'll be able to post something every day, I will try to put up some little Halloweenie things on this blog as often as possible.  Some days will be smaller, single paragraph blurbs while other days will be more in depth posts i.e. an updated post concerning the fantastic Halloween DVD "GROTESQUERIES" which I posted about here back in 2008 and which has been re-issued in a new edition.  Halloween and all it stands for means to much for me to ignore no matter what difficulties are occuring in my personal life.  So, I hope you will visit my audio blog BATHED IN THE LIGHT FROM ANDROMEDA each day for some gruesome tunes (which will remain up and NOT be taken down every day so don't worry if you miss a day -- they'll still be there) and also stop by here during October to see what treats I manage to pull from my little plastic pumpkin.  In the immortal (if slightly paraphrased) words of Dr. Shock:  "Let There Be Fright . . . . Lite"!

"try to due" ?

A Kubrickian deliberate error meant to unsettle the reader and signify the the Salem Witch trials or should I say a continuity flaw deliberately placed to represent 'due to try' as in 'about to deliberate' the fate of the innocents. Methinks Jack Torrance had a hand in this post.

Oh I've only Kubricked that last comment with 'the the'.

All type and no typos makes Rick a dull boy.

For once, it was actually deliberate -- as in the other "deliberate typo" neither of you mentioned when i say circumstances "beyond my console" instead of control. Trying to keep my readers alert . . .

. . . both of 'em.

I did actually assume that console was deliberate but should point out that when you refer to "both" your readers you are in error as I am totally a figment of your imagination.

Hmmm....the two identical comments can only lead me to assume that you are TWO figments of my imagination. The William Wilson of my psychosis!!!

One comment was probably posted by my own doppelganger.

Cerpts said...

Funny, that's just what HE said about you!
