William Shatner’s Halloween

shatnerFun trivia: the original Michael Myers’ mask from HALLOWEEN is really a $2 Captain Kirk mask that the filmmakers painted white. But that’s not all.

  • The original hockey mask worn by Jason in FRIDAY THE 13TH: PART 2 is an exact replica of the hockey mask William Shatner used as a high-school goalie.
  • Freddie Kreuger’s red-and-green sweater from A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET was knit by William Shatner’s great aunt.
  • Leatherface’s mask in THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE was made of full-grain leather from a cow raised and slaughtered by Leonard Nimoy.
  • The hundreds of pages reading “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy” in THE SHINING were typed by William Shatner.
  • Contrary to popular belief, William Shatner was in no way involved with THE EXORCIST.
  • In ROSEMARY’S BABY, Mia Farrow was actually pregnant with William Shatner’s child.

Poof

I have a special vacuum for ultrafine particles and use it to clean the ash out of our wood-pellet stove. This morning, I inadvertently hooked the hose into the unit’s exhaust port, flipped the motor on, and put the nozzle into the stove. That was a bummer.

Bluegrass Pixies

I’m a sucker for interesting covers of beloved songs. I heard this walking into a bar two Fridays ago and it really set the tone. On a related note, I’m trying to learn this on electric guitar, which I’ve been playing sporadically for less than a season, and the bar chords are killing me. My old fingers are starting to figure it out, though.

Mantis

He tried and tried to climb my parents’ wall, but the siding was just too slippery for mantis feet. I suggested The Serenity Prayer and oh, he gave me such a look.
