Halloween Phone Clean-Up

I've been passing out candy to cutie-patootie trick-or-treaters, and watching Re-Animator.  Is this what Halloween is at 41?  I've been doing Halloween stuff all month, so I think I'm fizzled out for the actual night of my favorite of all holidays.
 
So, this is pretty silly, but here are some Halloween-ish pictures that I've saved in my phone for ages, and want to delete.  In the cases of artsy stuff, per usual, I regret not remembering/finding out whodunit.  Sorry, artists! 
 
A fantastic Halloween/Christmas portrait of
my favorite author...Neil Gaiman.  Y'all know
that by now, I guess.

A wonderful poster of one of my
top five favorite films.


One of my favorite incarnations of this meme.  Alas, I still
need to see the movie.  (Straight Outta Compton, not Hocus Pocus).

London under attack.  ACH NOH!!!

Not really Halloween themed, but I adore
this painting, and it pretty much looks like this
tonight.  I do know who created this.  It's
Night, by Alice Neel, c. 1936--the year my
dad was born.

So stinkin' clever.  The human body mapped as
as a subway system.  Credit is given at the bottom
but I can't see it.  Click to "embiggen" and maybe
you can read it.

This really cracked me up.  I love examples of
kids' work that proves when he or she is
"one to watch".

Always makes me smile. :)

It's a night of masks, after all. 


Love her and this, for those of us who aren't offbeat on just one
night a year.


Again with the Gaiman fan art.  So perfect.

I'm taking the skeleton down from my door and
turning out the porch light.  Happy Halloween, all!

In which I Write for You a Poem, Right Now, with Much Forced Rhyme, and No Wit, Per Se, and which is Best Spoken Aloud by You at as Quick a Pace as Possible, with the Typical Shouting at the Sight of All Caps

Wanna hear it?  Here it goes...




It's...
  
 
Halloweeny, Halloweeny!
Time for ghosts and ghouls and meanies
 
Halloweeny, Halloweeny!
Jack the Ripper, clowns and Sweeney
 
Halloweeny, Halloweeny!
Time for spells in books, on screenies
 
Halloweeny!  Halloweeny!
Wear a glow stick, wear a beanie

 
Halloweeny!  Halloweeny!
Lenny, Squiggy, Shirley Fini

Halloweeny!  Halloweeny!
Be the lamp or be the genie

Halloweeny!  Halloweeny!
More forced rhyme that ends with "eeny"
 
Halloweeny!  Halloweeny!
 HALLOWEENY!  HALLOWEENY!



That's it.  Happy Halloween, everybody!
