All Hallows' Eve - Halloween, Y'all

Get your Alabama I-ain't-sceert on with The Dexateens.

Spooky Alabama Goodness:

"Directed by Paul Hanninen
Produced by Elliott McPherson
On Halloween, 2008, the Dexateens traveled out to 'Old Bryce', the abandoned Jemison Mental Hospital on the outskirts of their hometown, Tuscaloosa, Alabama, in an attempt to conjure up whatever spirits might still lurk there.

They took their guitars, recording equipment, and a handful of songs.

Things did not go according to plan.
Part 1: In which we learn the history of the hospital, the band arrives at the hospital and performs, and plans go awry."

Part 2: In which a 2nd journey is proposed and carried out, another song is performed, and an unexplained encounter occurs.

Part 3: In which unexplained evidence is examined.

Excellent work, Dexateens!


From one of the scariest places on earth comes on of the most hilarious commercials you'll ever see.

I would not want to be haunted by the Ghost of Robert Lee.

The making of contains more high hilarity:


Because Republicans are scary. Scary because it's truthy.

Obama's Declaration Of Swine Flu Emergency Prompts Pro-Swine-Flu Republican Response | The Onion - America's Finest News Source:

"WASHINGTON—Claiming that the president was preying on the public's fear of contracting a fatal disease last week when he declared the H1N1 virus a national emergency, Republican leaders announced Wednesday that they were officially endorsing the swine flu. 'Thousands of Americans—hardworking ordinary Americans like you and me—already have H1N1,' Republican National Committee chairman Michael Steele said during a press conference. 'Now Obama wants to take that away from us. Ask yourself: Do you want the federal government making these kinds of health care decisions for you and your family?' Other prominent Republicans opposing Obama's declaration of emergency include Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal, who urged residents of his state to continue not washing their hands, and radio host Rush Limbaugh, who made a point of dying of the virus during his show on Wednesday"

Oh, South Carolina. What would be do without thee.

Halloween in SC? Viagra, a few dildos, a stripper.... in a cemetery.

Police: Ex-SC lawmaker caught with stripper:
"A former South Carolina legislator has been fired from the state prosecutor's office after authorities say he was discovered in a Columbia cemetery with a stripper."

Happy Halloween!
