Inflatable Reaper Carriage

Image Hosted by

WalMart, last year. If I weren't so poor, this would have been mine.

Not so sure it would have come down after Halloween, either. Like, ever.

Oh, Sarah Palin could spin that display as further proof that Obama is involved in devil worship. Or something...

I'm not really crazy about the recent Poofication of outdoor halloween decorations. Fluffy inflatables and Horror to me just don't mix, though I will admit this thing is much cooler than most of them.

Any Major Dude: So you're rooting for Obama then, I take it. :)

Steve: I agree with you generally, but I'm okay with the inflatables, if only because they're usually huge; the sheer, attention-getting size of them trumps the cutesy-poo factor for me.

But no, I'm not normally keen on the cutesy stuff either.

Not terribly subtle, am I? Tell you what though, those photos of McCain after the final debate, the pics with his tongue out and appearing to prepare tackling Obama around the waist, that look would be great for Halloween.


Music is posted for a short time, and while I use it in part to (hopefully, though not always) go along with the theme of the photo, I also post it in hopes someone will give it a try and fall in love with it as I have. Perhaps they will then seek out more by the artist and buy more cds. That's how it works with me, anyway. If you like it, pick it up at the store; support the artists you love.
