Powerfully crreeepy images! Six Flags has the makings of a new kind of theme park. Imagine if they cleaned this up only enough to make it safe for guests, even accentuated the rundown appearance, and then re-opened it as the Six Flags Haunted Cajun Carnival. (That's probably an example of an idea the public would go wild over but the business types making the decisions would never understand or allow.)

I am also reminded of how much the film Carnival of Souls has a Bradbury flavor. This still you've posted above looks like it could have been taken straight out of Carnival of Souls.

Oh, my - do so! It's both terrifying and surreally beautiful at the same time.

Quite possibly Ray's thoughts when he first bought his kids a TV. BTW, that isn't one of his kids in the picture, is it?

thanks for the sugar skull recipe, dandelion, I just may try it this halloween. They had some at a Dia de Los Muertos celebration I went to a couple of years ago, but they seemed more like for an altar than for eating, so I didn't get one.

I love the sugar skulls in the Halloween Tree animated cartoon.They make such a nice crunch when the kids bite into them.

Available in ceramic, too!



You know, I was trying to figure why the graphics looked so familiar, and then it came to me:

Well, maybe Heinleinesque more than Bradburyesque, but what the heck:
