Morticia and Leticia

I got these albums in celebration of Women's History Month:

The Addams Family Exclusive Vinyl LP from ThinkGeek

Here's Morticia's Theme:

Mae West Sings from Myra Breckinridge (1970)

I had to download the album after seeing Mae as Leticia in the film.

Listen to her cover of Hard To Handle here.
The link to download the album is there too.

I also watched her last film Sextette (1978), featuring Alice Cooper!

The rest of March will be all about wicked women here, except for the 24th.
That'll be Shatner Day in celebration of William's birthday, which is the 22nd.

Sirius Story

Simone Mareuil, the movie hottie, gave up her body
Burnt it like toast, but she couldn't give up her ghost
Self-immolation caused her damnation
Now the sad spirit of Simone wanders forever alone.
I wrote that sadly true story about the suicide of Simone Mareuil.
I titled it Sirius, cause she's the star of An Andalusian Dog (1929).
Sirius is The Dog Star.

The art is by Jessicka Addams. You can get it on t-shirts at her store here.
The words in pink are from her band Jack Off Jill's song Strawberry Gashes.
Their song Star No Star reminds me of Simone and the end of the film too.
Both songs are on their album Clear Hearts Grey Flowers. You can get it here.

I ordered this Sympath Tea pin from Jessicka's store here:

I'll post a photo wearing it on my Instagram here soon.
I finally got a new smart phone, so I'll post there more.

Monster Dog (1984)

Alice Cooper plays rock star Vince Raven in this fangtastic film.
He returns to his childhood home to shoot a music video, 
while wild dogs are on the loose killing off local residents.
The sheriff suggests that Raven knows something about it,
since Raven's father was accused of being a werewolf and murdered years ago.
Now everyone suspects Raven, including his girlfriend, Sandra (Victoria Vera).
Is he a werewolf? You'll have to watch it here to find out.

You can watch the music videos from the film below though.

Thought I'd share this Alice figure I got at Toys R Us years ago too:

I got the Lemax Spooky Town skeletons from Amazon recently,
because they remind me of the dancing skeletons in this video:

I'll be posting dogs in horror here all year, since it's Year of the Dog.

The Seventh Annual Vampire's Day Soiree

Listen to Dracula's Greatest Hits:

While you have a glass of hot chocolate blood:

You can put these popcorn mashmarrows in it:

And have some bleeding heart Junior Mints for dessert:

Then join Dracula's bride Vampira (Teresa Graves) on the dance floor:

As she flew out, two love bats flew in and requested this song:

Dracula's son Count Downe (Harry Nilsson) will play the last song:

That's my favorite Nosferatune.

Speaking of poor Count Orlok,
check out this artwork from the Curse of the Vampire comic book:

You can get it on Etsy here.

Win a $25 Etsy gift card by guessing how many candy heart pills are in this jar:

I'll announce the winner this Saturday.

Be sure to visit all the guests listed here.

Happy Vampire's Day! ^♥^

My milkshake brings Evil Grimace to the yard

And he's like "It's a dinosaur!"

Damn right, it's a dinosaur.
(A tri-shake-atops to be exact.)
I tricked you, but I didn't charge.

Speaking of dinosaurs, I learned about Evil Grimace from Dinosaur Dracula here.
That's when I found the figure of him on eBay, which was in the box/on the card:

I only opened one side of the box, so I was able to put him back in it.

He was a 2007 SDCC exclusive, so getting him for $50 was a good deal.

I love everything about him, but wish they didn't sew his arms to his body.

I wish mini milkshakes with velcro to stick on his hands were included too.

Now here's all the dirt I dug up on Evil Grimace:

He was introduced in November 1971.
In his first three appearances, he was depicted with two pairs of arms to steal shakes.
(Dinosaur Dracula posted those three commercials. I found one more with him here.)
"Evil" was soon dropped from his name and he was reintroduced in 1972 as a good guy.

Evil Grimace still existed as a sticker, a cookie, and a valentine card though.
As you can see:

You can get those stickers here and watch the commercial for them below.

That screen cap is from this cookie commercial:

You can get the other McDonaldland valentine cards here.
The commercial for them is at the 3:41 mark of this video:

I think there are two Grimaces. Fraternal twins. One evil, one good.
Evil Grimace was banished from McDonaldland, so he moved to England.
Where he became personal assistant to Justin Hawkins of The Darkness.
Doesn't that look like him drying Justin off in their best video below?

Poe Playthings

Back row Poe is a Living Dead Doll. I posted about him here.

Middle row Poe is my new action figure from McPhee.com.

Front row Poe is Lil Edgar, who was from McPhee.com too.

Here's the animated version of the mini comic that came with him:

This post is in celebration of Poe's birthday.
