Monsters of the Grid Iron

Do you guys remember Monsters of the Gridiron?

I was never a kid that was into sports, but I remember thinking these were super cool. I lost these somewhere, alongside my Goosebumps collection, but a good friend of mine had Ronnie "The Rattler" Lott's card and generously gave it to me!

They never really scared me, but I did get weirdly creeped out by some of the make up.  Apparently there was some sort of contest, but I don't remember that in the slightest.

There's even a BEHIND THE SCENES video over on the NFL site. This is the most enthusastic I've ever been about pro sports.

First Trip To Spirit 2015

Took my first trip of the 2015 Halloween season to my local Spirit Halloween... of which there only seem to be 2 so far. Check out a very short, unimportant video of stuff that I liked.

It's Heeeerrreeeee

I took a grocery trip to my local, friendly H.E.B. only to find these fellas on the shelves. School just started this week, so that means as soon as the binders and college rule notebooks are packed away, the best season of the year officially arrives.

Getting Closer By The Day

Last year I discovered Dinosaur Dracula, and watched, like, EVERY video he put up about Halloween. When I need that little October feeling in my life, I can throw on one of his videos, and scratch that itch.  A few weeks ago a couple of friends and I decided to try and do a Halloween podcast. It didn't work out so hot, and we kind of dropped the whole thing, but Dino Drac had the same idea it seems. Him and a buddy have done two episodes of the "Purple Stuff Podcast", and so far it's gold. The second episode was about childhood fears, and it got me reallllly thinking about mine (aliens, dingus!). Maybe we'll give our podcast a second go and try and put her up. Maybe.

In the mean time, I made a little animation for you, as well as trying to get The Spook Troops up and going..... again. So much time, so little energy.

The 2015 Season Approaches

Ok, we've hit August. I've seen the Fall decor in craft stores since late May, but I didn't get my first peek of anything department store-ish until this week.

We've got our first seasonal beer on the shelves at HEB (Mueller for you locals).  Out Of Your Gourd Pumpkin Porter, eh? I'll have to give these fellas a shot here pretty shortly.

I also saw a pinball machine called "Monster Bash", which the classic horror icons are a rock band. Obvi.
