If you’re like me, you’ve probably been slacking off watching Cupcake Wars in your underpants for the past three months and suddenly just realized that you don’t have a Halloween Costume!!!
If that’s the case, here’s a few creepy ideas that will scare the pants off of everyone you know, assuming, of course, that everyone you know still wears pants. If everyone you know is like me and just says no to pants, you should probably start meeting some new people.
MY IPHONE SHOT OF THE WEEK - “EXCITEBIKE”
I liked this one best because of the awesome dilapidated seat and the fact that it made me think of EXCITEBIKE, one of the best 80’s Nintendo games ever! Also, I like orange.
For those of you unfamiliar with EXCITEBIKE, here’s a picture of the original box!!! I found it using a website called Google.
I wish I could still pop a wheelie like cute little EXCITEBIKE MAN, but these days I can’t even do a sit-up without crying, so that’s probably not gonna happen.
Anyway, feel free to check out more of my daily iphone photos here.
GREAT MOMENTS IN PHOTOSHOP EXCELLENCE 02 - “HAPPY BOBBLEHEAD BIRTHDAY!!!”
So today is my sister Rian’s birthday, and as such I took it upon myself to make my first ever GIF, because, after all, nothing else puts the GIF in GIFT like a GIF!!!
Anyway, my mom took this picture of me and my sister chillin’ on the doorstep of our Wyoming rancher in probably 1983 or 84. We were probably waiting for a lonely tumbleweed to roll by so that we could chase it, as not much else was going on in Wyoming in the early 80s.
Anyway, happy birthday sis! I sure hope this gif works on your computer.
FLASHBACK FRIDAY 08 - “2 GUYS, 2 BIKES, AND THE END OF MY INNOCENCE”
The good news…
I know for a fact that this photo was taken on May 15th, but I’m not sure which year. I’m guessing 1986 or 87. Anyway, it was my birthday and my folks hooked me up with a brand new shiny red and white Spalding to replace my used and abused Murray. I remember being so excited to have a bike with “hand breaks” as opposed to “foot breaks”. I also remember scrubbing those white tires with warm soapy water every night before bed.
Anyway, my dad didn’t have a bike at the time so I gave him my old rusty Murray, and my mom took this picture to commemorate our new acquisitions.
The bad news…
Unfortunately my new bike was stolen about a month later, along with my innocence. Fortunately my dad let me have the Murray back, free of charge. But nothing, not even my dad, could give me back my innocence, that was gone forever.
PEOPLE OF JAPAN 27 - “LOOK CLOSELY”
Look closely… she’s hiding something. Could it be a mogwai? I hope so.
For any Gremlins enthusiasts out there, here’s a question that has always bothered me…
I know that the most important rule for “keeping” a mogwai is “Don’t ever feed him after midnight”. My question is, at what point after midnight can you feed a mogwai? I assume there must be a specific time, is it noon? It’s very confusing because midnight is the beginning of the day so everything that follows would technically be considered “after midnight”? Do you see what I’m saying.
I’m only asking because in my dream world I’d like to eat pancakes for breakfast with my mogwai. Unfortunately I prefer my pancakes at around 8am on Sundays. Would this be possible, or would I have to eat pancakes for dinner? I’d obviously make the sacrifice to prevent a “gremlin situation” from happening, but damn, pancakes are sooooo good in the morning.
Any advice would be much appreciated.
PEOPLE OF JAPAN 20 - “JAPANESE UNCLE BUCK?”
A few days back I posted another photo of this amazing man along with a quiz question asking which 80’s comedic actor he resembled. I had an overwhelming two participants which I’m pretty sure means that my blog briefly went viral. Anyway, congratulations to John Carleton and Drew Shannon, you both answered correctly, the correct answer was indeed John Candy! As you two read this imagine me throwing some popcorn in the air and Vicki yelling “Yay”, because unfortunately that’s the only prize you guys will be getting. I was going to give the winner a nice gift certificate to Applebee’s but since you guys tied I decided to just throw it in the trash.
Anyway, everyone should follow John and Drew now as they are two cool guys who are not afraid to answer the tough questions.
