I guess one Halloween post wasn't enough. I was going to leave it at that, but then I decided to tear down the wallpaper in here and reveal the original stonework underneath, for that nice dungeon atmosphere...and I spotted and had to share with you RavensBlight
, which is something of a one-stop-browse for Halloween. This multimedia horror entertainment site has a little of everything from the mind of creator Ray O'Bannon: a large art gallery
with satisfyingly campy collections of paintings, drawings, photos, and objects, a sizeable arcade
of horror-themed games, a toyshop
of stylish downloadable paper models for board games, figures, dioramas, masks, and more, plus a fiction library and a collection of original music.

I suggest it just in case you felt you didn't have anything Halloweeny enough to do tonight. Too old for trick-or-treating, no parties, work at night and sleep during the day, leaving your evening too cramped to fit in any festive activities, and didn't get event tickets far enough in advance anyway? I hear you.
I might try to rouse myself early this afternoon, though, and go see The Hunchback of Notre Dame at Trinity Church
. I would have preferred to catch Nosferatu
at St. John the Divine for the Halloween Extravaganza last weekend, but I found out about it too late to get tickets, and each showing would have made me either dangerously late for work or miserably short on sleep. There's always next year.
