The second set of photographs from this year’s “Jack O’Lantern Spectacular” at The Roger Williams Park Zoo!
Midnight Syndicate thrills audiences at Cedar Point’s HalloWeekends with their first live performances in the multimedia Halloween horror music concert, Midnight Syndicate Live! Legacy of Shadows.
Halloween is a particularly spooky time in Terror Dave Albaugh’s native New England. He’s fortunate to also be working at a place that has a unique way of celebrating the holiday, The Roger Williams Park Zoo! Jack O’Lantern Spectacular is their big event and features a gigantic collection of skillfully carved pumpkins and we’ve featured it for the past several years (you can see last year’s introduction HERE). Like last year, I won’t be able to see it for myself so, like many of you, I’m relying on David to send us pictures from the big event (though this should not imply that pictures are a suitable substitute so, if you’re able to get there, DO IT!) . Because these are real pumpkins, they eventually die and new designs are sent in as replacements. So even if you are fortunate to attend one night, you’re bound to see something new via these posts. Every year has a theme and 2014 is “The Alphabet” promising a cornucopia of thrills from A to Z. The event began October 2nd and will run until November 2nd. And so, without further adieu…
On September 7, 2011 I published the first in a three-part series (seen HERE) covering a favorite topic of mine, Halloween novelty songs. I initially became a fan thanks to the Dr. Demento Show (visit the official website HERE) that I would listen to as a young teen every Sunday night, pulling in a weak signal from a Boston-area station. Like all good things, the Dr. Demento Show eventually went off the air in this area but thanks to Rhino Records I was able to start building up a collection of novelty songs, with an emphasis on my favorite holiday, Halloween.
The Daves are pleased to announce that JAMMIN’ WITH JAMIE returns to the airwaves on Saturday, September 27th! Jamie Lee Cortese has been a friend and supporter of the Daves since day one and has also been a regular contributor to our site.
(Continued from Sunday 9-21-14) We no sooner entered The International Cryptozoology Museum when David started photographing every inch of it. Thank the Universe for digital cameras because there was so much to see that it soon became obvious this was one attraction warranting multiple visits. What amazed me was how they were able to display so many interesting objects of varying shapes and sizes while still managing to have it all relatively organized. I didn’t see the need for us both taking a million pictures so I decided to leave that endeavor to him while I chatted with Sarah and made my way around the building.
