Halloween Mix Tape 2012


For the first post, I’ve compiled a list of some of my favorite songs to listen to during the Halloween season. Some of these vid’s may be incredibly cheesy, I didn’t make them, but the songs are good. Also, caution when opening some video’s, some are NOT safe for work, they will be labeled but use caution with any of them. Without further pause, the best of my Halloween mix.

Switchblade Symphony – Witches

Aqua – Halloween

Inkubus Sukkubus – Wytches

Within Temptation – Forsaken

Avenged Sevenfold – Piece of Heaven: this is NOT SAFE FOR WORK…. and probably most religious, sane, or normal thinking people….

Rocky Horror Picture Show – Double Feature

The Exorcist – Mike Oldfield – Tubular Bells

Rob Zombie – House of a Thousand Corpses: Lyrics may not be considered safe for some work, check description on the video for lyrics if you’re not sure. Note the woman moaning*

Insane Clown Posse – House of Horrors: Lyrics may not be safe for work, Explicit

Lords of Acid – Kiss Eternal

Little Shop of Horrors – Mushnik and Son

Nightmare Before Christmas – Oogie Boogie’s Song

The Fog

Alice Cooper – Man Behind the Mask

Jace Everett – Bad Things

The Ramones – Pet Cemetary

Scissor Sisters – I Can’t Decide: the video is clips from Dexter, should be enough said

Thou Shalt Not – If I Only Were a Goth

Ushiromiya Maria (Horie Yui) – Happy Halloween Maria


Back, Like a Baws!


Did you miss me?

Just kidding! I am back though after a couple of weeks exploring the wonders through the Mists. Panda haters be damned, but I do love the new zones, and yes, the new race and class.

If you don’t know that Halloween is on its way, you are obviously living in another country, or else quite deprived. But we still love you anyway <3. For the next 3 weeks I’ll be bringing you the best of my tricks and as always the treats! If you’re still playing WoW (and if you are reading this you probably are) it should be noted that Hallows End will be starting this Thursday October 18th in game.

Some things of note for this year’s Hallows End event.. Scarlet Monastery has been updated with the expansion, so I highly suggest going in and doing the Horseman at least once. The item levels will be equivalent of current MoP end game gear. If it matches Brewfest (as I’m sure it will), the level to go in will be 89. The Headless horseman’s mount is now account bound, so if you have more than one toon that is high enough take them in to try to win it. And if you haven’t been in a while, there are some new rewards that can be earned with the trick-or-treat candy like the Feline Familiar (or you can just buy one of mine of the AH $$)

Onward to the first of our Halloween goodies! Are you having a hard time deciding on your costume? Why not go as the original evil playable class, a Warlock! PMF has an awesome papercraft design for a wearable Warlock helm based on the Hood of Malefic. I put this together in relatively short time at work, and I can attest to it being big enough to be wearable… perhaps a little too big in design though.

Some comments before you get crafting though.. the horns do sag on the finished product, I used interlaced drinking straws reinforced with toothpicks taped to the underside to give a little more stability. I would advise you to glue the pieces once you have their locations mapped, it is tight enough that with the double sided tape it does get a few ‘holes’ in it. Also, this is a little difficult as far as wear-ability, there is a liner for the head built into the base, but it shifts very easily because of the weight of the horns, so you may want to think of a way to anchor this with a rubber band or pins or something.

 

You can find PMF’s post with the download to the pattern here

And here is my completed version, with my little Windrider Cub for reference

 

Stay tuned, next week will feature a double post, one for a peek at my epic Halloween playlist, and one featuring some of the best Halloween tracks released by the WoW community!!
