Boil & Wart
Minions Carolyn and Andrew have a witch problem.

Well, maybe not a problem in the classic sense of the word. Call it a pickle. A pickle of witches. Two witches constitute a pickle, right? Or would it be a cackle? Anyway, they’re pretty cool.

TheodoreAnd what’s more fun than a pickle barrel full of cackling witches but a Grumbley crow! His name, as I understand it, is Theodore.

Looking forward to seeing more from these guys in the future.

The funny thing about imploding witch heads

Spookyblue Witch ProjectI had been experimenting, some time ago, with Great Stuff as a filler material for paper skulls. (Never give up on a bad idea.) Great Stuff, for the uninitiated, is expanding, sometimes evil, foam in a can.

To summarize, I used too much, too fast, and it expanded unevenly during the curing process. My experimental skulls collapsed as the sticky ooze did weird things, and I was left with some very scrunched up faces.

Witches, happily, often appear to have scrunched up faces. >ding!< Thus began our Witch Project.

Special thanks go out to the folks who encouraged, prodded, plagued, heckled, and otherwise nagged your old pal Spook into finally finishing the ‘Witch Project’. You know who you are. :)

Terrified Beyond the Capacity for Rational Thought

Your 401K sits shivering in some back room in a New York bank, covered in a blanket.

A grief counselor tries to console her, but the camera flashes in the hallway outside make her jump. The lights reflect in her haunted eyes.

September 29 is going to be remembered for a long, long time. You can bet that in the coming weeks the voices will be shrill and angry as the talking heads try to out-scare each other and the politicians and partisans brawl over who’s to blame. If there are no fist fights over this by the end of the week I’ll be very surprised.

A lot of people are scared. If you’re one of them, then take a deep breath and go eat some pizza or fix a nice big lasagna with garlic bread and lots of cheese. Watch your favorite movie, pet the dog, go make a zombie. Relax.

Just because the “professionals” are terrified beyond the capacity for rational thought doesn’t mean that we have to be.

If that doesn’t make you feel any better, then here are a few pictures to help take your mind off of things.
