This was fun – I pulled out all the stops this year because I am so relieved (and eternally thankful) that we are healing from last year with its Smoke, Pandemic, Trump / Politics, Power Outages due to Fire Danger – have I left anything out?

Now lets pray for rain. I expect to do one Thanksgiving / Christmas set and photo shoot – but my thing is Harvest Festival and Halloween – and Thanksgiving – which is a Harvest Festival. I’m a Pagan I think . . . .

Final Halloween 666 Series Episode Plan

Fun and Light Hearted

I’ll end this series with a bike parade in the town that has the Train Station, Haunted House, Cemetery and Circus.

Bad Assed

It will be Trick or Treat based, with “the kids” the star of the show. No entrails or other macabre stuff this time – just puppets and skeletons on bikes.

Stay tuned.

Halloween 666 Series #5: Circuscide

Everyone Loves a Circus!

Todays song is a joke – I used the chords and notes to spell out “CABBAGE” – since all of these letters are also musical notes / chords. I was a bit lazy today, but it was still a lot of fun.

Le Cirque Du Boucher

Circus Tent With Evil Clown Butchers

Boucher is French for Butcher – rhymes with Soleil too.

Anyway, I started thinking about Killer Klowns as my 5th installment of the Halloween 666 Series. The devil will be in the details. Literally.

Halloween 666 Series #4: Nevermore

The Full Nevermore Set

This year I am celebrating Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Raven” and quite a few other poems and stories that were inspired by both his Mother and Wife (both) dying at age 24 from Tuberculosis. He might have had some existing mental health issues – but his substance abuse and unending grieving seemed to drive him mad and over the top. He was a very smart guy – but had a rough life and died a really sad death. I suppose he would be sort of like “The 27 Club” – where famous artists died early. However, Poe made it to the ripe old age of 40. But in a weird way, he reminds me of Kurt Cobain.

I think with this episode – I’ve exhausted (exhumed) my Poe energy. Next week I will have a really diabolically funny (and yeah – somewhat cliche) Halloween Perennial Favorite theme – but I promise – it will be twisted in my own way and style. I’m quite excited.

Stay tuned, in Tune, etc

Spectral Orb

This Man Can’t Get The Shelves Installed in His Ikea Bookshelves

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 Dome
Reflects the moonlight
Like a Spectral Orb
In the middle of the night

A ghastly site
His hairless head
Scares many a child
You'd think he was Dead

He's not a clown
But something far worse
His old beat up car
Is a dusty old Hearse

He offers the children
A one way ride
To the cemetery
Where they can't hide

Its only a nightmare
Puppets aren't real
Except politicians
Who grift, lie and steal

Stay tuned for this weekends fourth installment of the 666 Halloween series.

The (spineless) Protagonist

Our Protagonist Needs a Chair (and a spine)

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!

Set Design for This Weekends Photo Shoot

OK, ol’ “Floppy Disk” needs a spine so he can sit in this chair (well, start of what will become a chair).

He will be the star of the next installment of the 666 Series. Stay in tune, er tubed, er tuned…..

Halloween 666 Series #2: Lenore

Lenore on KAW Radio

Todays Imaginary Puppet Theatre’s (IPT) Show is an adaptation of Edgar Alan Poe’s “The Raven” – but it concentrates on his wife who died at age 24 of tuberculosis – (which is what his Mother also died of when he was only 2 years old). He references his wife using many different names throughout his work. It seems to have been a factor in driving him mad – leading to a very sad ending to his life. Its amazing he even lasted until he was 40. Many famous Rock stars seem to have made it only to age 27 . . . .

The song is a funeral dirge – since Poe wrote many stories and stories about the loss of his young wife.

Happy accidents happened this weekend – I am Quite Pleased with this Assemblage piece

You might now have figured out that my “Modus Operandi” is that the puppet theatre and everything in it is an Assemblage. And that then is a still life for my photography. Music just happens – sometimes they mesh, but to have a sound track seems to be a good thing, regardless of whether they mesh or not.

Until Next Imaginary Puppet Theatre Show – We Bid You Adieu and Bonne Chance

This is the Second in the 666 series – the second photo shoot and second song in 6 weeks . . .
