Happy Halloween.

It’s all over the world now. Even Down Under they think it’s Halloween. I guess it could be, but globalism is ruining every fucking thing that makes a place unique and desirable. I really don’t want to go to Aussieland and see trick or treating. This tradition actually goes back to the Middle Ages and has it’s origins in Britain and Ireland. The festival is believed to have pre-Christian roots. In the 9th century, the Catholic Church made 1 November All Saints’ Day. Among Celtic-speaking peoples, it was seen as a liminal time, when the spirits or fairies, and the souls of the dead, came into our world and were appeased with offerings of food and drink. Sounds like Dia De Los Muertos down there in Mexico, although San Francisco always had a great Day of the Dead parade through the Mission. It was so nice there sometimes. It’s a cryin’ shame that the place is being destroyed by Progressives. The weather is awesome.

In any case, the souls of the dead, the pixies, the fairies, or other liminal entities may or may not appear today . I hope they do so nicely. I’ve had a run in with them already trying to get my phone to work yesterday. Some say that Trick or Treating may have originated in Greek antiquity. The ancient Greek writer Athenaeus of Naucratis records in his book The Deipnosophists that, in ancient times, the Greek island of Rhodes had a custom in which children would go from door-to-door dressed as swallows, singing a song, which demanded the owners of the house to give them food and threatened to cause mischief if they refused. What does dressing as a Swallow actually look like? I don’t know. I don’t answer the door any more on Halloween night. When teenagers who don’t bother dressing up even as Swallows start appearing and demanding sweets, I’m out.

Nope

It has been fun in the past though. Maybe I’ll do it again. Never say never, but not this year. Perhaps when America becomes America again, it might be worth doing. It’s Helloween all year round at the moment. I’d rather be giving candy to someone I really like than to random strange children who probably don’t need all that sugar in the first place. What am I talking about? I meant High Fructose Corn Syrup obviously. It’s garbage stuff and should be banned, but nobody cares about your health other than to give you pills when it eventually fails due to the toxic ingredients in processed foods. So to rephrase that, I’d rather be giving something sweet other than candy to someone I like.

That’s probably enough shit posting from me today. I have nothing much to say except try and watch the F Halloween Special. It will be up for about two weeks, and then it will be gone. I put a lot of work and effort into making it. Days, in fact. A few production notes. The multi track, which should have been the basis of the audio was full of drop outs. This meant that every song had gaps in it. In order to fix this, I had to isolate the gaps and patch them up with a basic track that was whole, but wasn’t anywhere near as good as the multi. Three cameras stopped recording half way through the session, so again, gaps where there was no video had to be made good. A tedious process, but nevertheless it still sounds and looks quite good. There are mistakes in the playing, but as entertainment it’s more than an hour of what would really be a live show if we ever did one. We might one day, who knows? Because there are no jokes in the video, I’ll leave one here.

I went to see the nurse today for a checkup. She told me I’d have to stop wanking. When I asked her why, she said, “Because I’m trying to examine you!”

Later…..

The Halloween Special. It will be online for two weeks. Check it out. 1 hr and 17 mins of pure entertainment.
