Spectral Orb

What does Sussex County, Spectral Orb and Ikea have in common? That’s right, nothing. Today I did upholster “ol’ Chrome Domes” high back chair and also finished the two bookshelves. His Chromium DomeReflects the moonlightLike a Spectral OrbIn the middle of the nightA ghastly siteHis hairless headScares many a child You’d think he was DeadHe’s not a clownBut something far worseHis old beat up…

Haunted Harvest Moon

Well, today is the first day of my favorite season. Last year was a total disaster and write off. Autumn was all but ruined by both the smoke from the fires, Covid, and the biggest asshole I’ve ever experienced – Dirtbag Trump. That year of politics running up to and even past the election was a total dumpster fire. This year we were spared…

The (spineless) Protagonist

Today was great for a Monday. I was lamenting the end of the weekend late yesterday (my weekends are as close to perfect as you can get). But work was great today. Crazy how I still like work after 40 years in I.T. Guess I chose the right career! OK, ol’ “Floppy Disk” needs a spine so he can sit in this chair (well,…

Halloween 666 Series: Part 3 – The Death of Radio

When I thought about The Raven and quite a few poems and stories that Poe wrote where he suffers the loss of his young wife, I asked myself if I have lamented anything like that in my life. The answer is luckily, no. My relatives who passed lived a good life and a full life – so while sad, it felt natural and normal….

Ghostorola

Tomorrow will be an exciting day in the Imaginary Puppet Theatre. Photo shoot number three in the 666 series will go down. Be There or be square. Ghostorola (shown above) will be a central character in the “show”. She’s a real beauty. The theme will be The Death of Radio. I’ve recently come around to the thought that like a human, things also have…

Halloween 666 Series, Part One

I will have a series of 6 Halloween Scenes, with 6 songs, and Its just over 6 weeks until Halloween.

Fall Leaves

There is one time every year where the natural beauty is so great, I swear to God I almost believe in God (again). You know what, nature’s beauty always reminds me that “God” got the big bang started that led to all this beauty. Beauty that man can’t create himself. It truly is other worldly. Today’s song is more folksy, and I think more…

(Haunted) Harvest Moon

This morning was quite chilly. Its definitely been a cooler than normal summer, and luckily, the fog persisted for the entire month of August. Some trees are turning color and they look quite nice. We had a few of days this past week, but every night it got nice and cool. In some ways its perfect weather. Knock on wood that it continues this…

Unhappy Acres

I realized that while the cemetery model looked cool from a certain perspective, it didn’t work for the photographic intentions that I have. Today’s song was a blast. Fender Thin Telecaster, Gretsch Lap Steel, Piano and Bass. I thoroughly enjoyed playing every part.

Lichen

I’m done painting and decorating the haunted house. It turned out better than I had expected. The cemetery and gates / fence is almost done. I need to make it look weathered. The “mitre” was a funny happy accident. I’ll be doing a Halloween photo shoot sooner than expected, so maybe I’ll do several.
