Halloween zombie mistaken for murder victim


"BERLIN (Reuters) - Passengers on a German train mistook a Halloween reveller dressed up as a gore-covered zombie for a murder victim and called the police.

The 24-year-old man fell into a drunken slumber on his way home from a Halloween party in Hamburg, police in the northern town of Bad Segeberg said on Monday.

Believing his hands and face were smeared with blood, passengers alerted police after getting no response from him."

illness

i am sick. it is a cross between a sinus infection and the plague. i stopped at rite aide today for provisions, and managed to forget tissues and tomato soup. i did, however, manage to obtain cold-eeze and vicks vaporub.

i have been brought up in a household that views vicks as a cure-all, catch-all remedy. i have uncomfortable childhood memories of my mother slathering me in vicks from head to toe. i think my yiayia may have been the root of the vicks obsession, as she always used to say "i love vicks so much... i could eat it" (to this day, this still creeps my brother and i out. because SERIOUSLY DON'T EAT IT.)

anyway, in honor of the matriarchs of my family, i have slathered myself in vicks.

fun game: put on fuzzy pants, rub vix on face, watch this video and presto! you're at a rave

go ninja go ninja go

i am exhausted times 10 from this weekend's festivities. i attended several halloween parties, and tore up pittsburgh, ninja style. i had a ninja mask, swords and even nunchucks (sp?)

this weekend i've learned that swords will make you popular. mostly with douchebags who want to battle. i was even challenged to a duel by a female pirate. it was awkward.

here's vanilla ice. just cuz

gasolina

as you may or may not know, daddy yankee's gasolina is one of my favorite songs. i cannot tell you why. i'm not really sure what the song is about. i don't speak spanish. and please don't tell me what it's really about. i know it's not about the rising cost of gas.

so, please enjoy the booty shaking video.

philly is fat, ugly

i am contemplating a light box. it seems like a good investment. it may stop me from the perpetual pajama time that usually occurs in november.

i cannot stop listening to electro awesomeness.

i just bought the justice album at the advice of my bro stuart. it is sick sick sick electro. my favorite tracks on the album are "stress" "newjack" "genesis" and "D.A.N.C.E."

here's D.A.N.C.E.



i've also been listening to a ridiculous amount of chromeo. currently bangin' the track "tenderoni"



surkin also puts some sick shit out. here's a live clip of "ghetto obsession." it makes me want to dance, a lot. if you can, try and get your hands on surkin's remix of vhs or beta's "burn it all down." it's amazing.
