Even though this is a relatively new site, this ain’t my first rodeo when it comes to blogging. I have an old blog I don’t write anymore and maybe one day, for the few of you who are reading this and have never seen it, I’ll link to it. Today’s not that day.
But today is the day when I’d like to celebrate a fellow blogger, buddy, and major inspiration. A while back, I had the pleasure of hanging out with my buddy Bill of Veggie Macabre. I can say without any exaggeration at all that if I hadn’t discovered him and his site, I wouldn’t be doing this right now. The dude’s sound as a pound.
I can’t express how fun his site is. It’s got beer reviews, food reviews, horror reviews, trips to spooky locations, and if you’re lucky, the occasional bee outfit. He just kicked off his Halloween Spook Show Countdown and I am lucky to be part of it.
We got up to a lot of beer swilling, video making, horror movie watching, and spooky stuff shopping. He took me out to his favorite oddity shop, Chester’s Collectibles, where I picked up this great Michael Meyers bobble head. Bill gave me the Freddy one to add to the set. Now I can sit them on my desk and watch Freddy taunt Michael, while Michael just nods silently and dreams of the day he can shove dynamite down Freddy’s pants.
Bill was also kind enough to give Retro Ghouls and Shocks some SERIOUSLY cool promotion by way of this video. More of this to follow soon…but for now, watch me mumble through a video and yell like a goober.
