Men can easily get a bad rep for not wearing a Halloween costume. it can show a lack of planning, confidence, and make one seem rather…dull. Don’t be in the “Dull Club” this year. If you haven’t planned something for tonight/tomorrow/or Monday, try any of these quick, humorous choices:
1. God’s Gift to Women
*Dress yourself in all black, take old wrapping paper and tape it around you, put a giant tag on your head that says “To: Women, From: GOD”


2. CD Burner
*String together numerous old CDs, put them around your neck, and carry a big lighter.

America’s Most Haunted Places

Saturday, October 22nd, 2011



People always wonder: are ghosts real? Paranormal TV presents a very interesting series on America’s Most Haunted Sites. Some of the stories are pretty eerie, so sit back and relax…if you can.

Manhattan Bistro, New York, New York
Manhattan Bistro, located at the ultra-trendy section of Soho at 129 Spring Street, is a French restaurant known for its famous ghost Juliana Elmore Sands. She was reportedly killed in the building in 1799 when her body was thrown into a well in the basement. Her spirit is often referred to as the “Ghost of Spring Street,” and can be seen as a vapor rising from the kitchen floor, occasionally scattering dishes and throwing ashtrays.

Moundsville Penitentiary; Moundsville, West Virginia
Moundsville Penitentiary, located in West Virginia, has a history of being one of the most violent prisons in the United States. Around 1,000 inmates have made their way to this location and were holed up in cramped quarters. Many of the prisoners were hung or executed in the electric chair, but some were murdered by their fellow inmates, especially due to the excessive riots. Built over 100 years ago and closed in 1995, the tortured ghosts of the inmates are thought to be still trapped behind the jail bars, and visitors report to have seen and heard them on tours.



Waverly Hills Sanatorium Louisville, Ky.
Legend has it that this former Kentucky hospital is haunted by the ghosts of some of the thousands of ill-treated tuberculosis patients who died here in the mid-1900s. One of the most famous features is the “body chute,” which was used to transport corpses from the hospital to the bottom of the hill.

Stanley Hotel: Estes Park, Colo.
Staff at the 1909 hotel—which inspired Stephen King’s novel The Shining but is not where the 1980 movie was filmed—have heard parties in an empty ballroom and music from an untouched piano. Ghost hunters also report seeing a table jump two feet in the air.

1796 plantation was reportedly location of a Native American burial site, which might explain some of the horrible happenings. Chloe, a slave-ghost who is alleged to have had a passionate romance with a rich Myrtle son but whose ear was cut off when she was discovered eavesdropping. Apparently she baked a poisonous birthday cake which killed the wife and two children. Ewww. Creepy.

FROM their official website: “These famous spirits include Michael, the Irish stonemason who fell to his death while building the hotel in 1885, Theodora, the cancer patient of the Dr. Baker hospital days who seems to need help finding her room key, Norman Baker in his white suit and lavender shirt, Morris the cat, a mystery patient in a white nightgown who appears in the luxury suites at the foot of your bed or any of the innumerable “spirits” who have been captured by the thousands of guests and hundreds of thousands of images captured while roaming the halls of this world famous hotel.


Investigated by the Sci-Fi Channel’s Ghost Hunters, the hotel has also been featured on NBC’s Today Show, A&E’s Haunted Road Trips, USA Today and most recently the Bio Network’s My Ghost Story, the hotel continues to gain popularity as the legend continues.

In 2011, a new mystery has surfaced with a sighting believed to be world renown dancer Irene Castle seen at the hotel by a young visitor. Castle retired to Eureka Springs and passed at the local hospital. Read more on this celebrity ghost discovered in “America’s Most Haunted Hotel.””

Halloween’s Beginning

Tuesday, October 18th, 2011

How did Halloween come about? Well, the History Channel says it originated from the Irish.

Sterling Silver Skeleton Spider Cufflinks

Celtic farmers used the word Samhain, which means “The End of Summer” to signify Halloween. They believed there was one day per year that represented both the living and the dead, where spirits could rise from the dead. The Celtics lit great bonfires and dressed up in order to repel the spirits from ruining their feature crops.

In the mid-19th century, after a devastating potato famine, one billion Irish came over to the United States, which brought the traditional holiday known as “All Hallows Eve.”

About 40 odd years after Christ, the Romans had primarily conquered Celtic land. Over the next four hundred years the Romans ruled over the Celtic land and certain traditional festivals were combined and inter-woven into both cultures. The first festival was called Feralia, which happened in late October when the Romans traditionally celebrated the passing of the dead. The next festival was to honor a Roman goddess of fruit and trees named Pomona.

(For Scary Stories, try this website called American and have fun re-telling age old spooky tales like “Bloody Mary,” and “Don’t Turn on the Light.” )

Needless to say, when the Celtic traditions came to the “New World,” the concept of Halloween didn’t go over well with the New England Puritans. But slowly it was disseminated into Puritan society and great bonfires were replaced with jack-o-lanterns, spirit dancing/deterring was replaced with dressing up in spooky attire, but no one really knows where/how the candy giving started…

SO the question remains: How did we go from deterring spirits from ruining our crops through rituals to giving candies to little children? We don’t let them in the house, we block them from coming inside, and appease them with bon bons. Creepy. Thought to chew on until next time.
