Music Monday: Thriller

On Carson last night Vincent Price said he commissioned a painting by Dali!
This beautiful one to be exact:
The Madonna and the Mystical Rose

I thought that was so cool, so I had to share.
I loved Vincent's art discussion with Johnny and Joan Rivers.
Sadly I couldn't find a clip of that episode, which was from 1974.
But I found one of the Halloween 1987 episode,
where Vincent recites his rap from Thriller!


I know you want to hear the whole song now,
so here it is with a doll version of the video:


Vincent's wife Coral Browne's birthday would've been Saturday.
You can read Vincent's daughter Victoria's post for Coral here.
I hope to meet her at Barnes & Noble in Arlington VA on August 6.
She'll be signing copies of Vincent's cookbook. All the info is here.

That song reminded me of this picture by Tylero88:
See an alternate version of it on my Facebook page here.

I was going to save the song for Music Monday,
but want to share this SDCC exclusive MH doll:

I got her! Tomorrow is the last day you can get her here!

Speaking of Monster High,
check out my friend Jaime with her Draculaura doll:
I love that she's rocking a Draculaura tee too!

I want to see a photo of YOU with a doll on the 31st,
which I've made Dress Up With A Doll Day!
If you'd rather not be in the photo, that's okay.
You can just post a photo of your dressed up doll
and call it Dress Up A Doll Day!

Don't have a doll? Print a paper doll!
Like this Halloween Betty Boop one:


Then cut it out, dress it up, take a photo and post it!

Or make a virtual doll here!

Music Monday: The Ballad of Chucky & Tiffany

Stuck With You by Voltaire with Amanda Palmer


I want those Chucky & Tiffany bows stuck (er, clipped) on me!
They're from Monique's Fun Accessories on Etsy and Storenvy.

The awesome Bride Of Chucky artwork up top is by Matt Ryan.
You can get it on a poster from his store. I want it too!

I also want this complete Chucky collection:

Music Monday: Spacation

Earthlings were making me cry, so I took to the sky.



First stop was Vegas In Space on the all female pleasure planet Clitoris.



The police queen Veneer busted me for breaking one of their laws.


And had her trainee Tracey take me to the less fabulous all female planet Venus.



Their queen sent Tracey away after hearing her tell me she used to be a he.

Queen of Venus from Abbott & Costello Go To Mars

I went with my new friend Tracey, who brought me back to Earth then left.
I'm sad she didn't stay for my birthday tomorrow, so I'm having a pity party.

Dad vs Doll in...

My favorite episode of The Twilight Zone.


The bad Dad's name is Erich Streator. 
He's superbly played by Telly Savalas.
The Doll's name is Talky Tina and I love her very much.
So much I'm applying to be one of her True Friends here.
June Foray voiced Tina and her inspiration, Chatty Cathy.
Tina was actually an altered Brikette doll though.
Here's one with a Talky Tina replica I really want:


If you haven't seen Living Doll,
watch this condensed version of it to see who wins:


Happy Father's Doll's Day!
