And here’s the most important thing to remember as we move into Halloween itself. The creepy stuff is fun, it’s great to have a thrill or two, but ultimately evil loses out. I know, I read ahead the the end of the Book. So on that note: HAPPY HALLOWEEN! Introduction to the Monster, Monster series […]Read more "Monster, Monster – Devil is a Loser"
Saving the best stuff for near the end and this is one of my absolute favorites. Dee Snyder and Alice Cooper, plus a cameo by zombie makeup king and sometimes actor Tom Savini (who also did all the makeup effects for the video).

My latest nerdicure turned out so cute I was compelled to share. It’s a base layer of Nicole by OPI in Freshly Squeezed, topped off by Espionage Cosmetics ‘Nailed It’ wraps in Batty, which has a clear background, unlike their other wraps. I topped the whole thing off with a single coat of clear Sally […]Read more "Halloween Nerdicure – I’ve Gone Batty"
Alice’s signature tune. Sadly all copies of the clip from the CBS special with Vincent Price seem to have been pulled from YouTube, Boo!!! This is, if I have to guess, from the Trash tour.
