Halloween Song #6 - “N.I.B.” by Black Sabbath, Live in Paris 1970

This is one of my all-time favorite songs.

Geeks Who Drink will be doing a Ghostbusters quiz with a cash prize next Sunday a minute’s walk from my apartment.

Soooo… who wants to win some money with me?

I like Cleopatra’s expression here. “See ya, jerks! I’m off to be an Avenger!” Unfortunately it wasn’t Cap she left with, and just ended up being one of Tony’s History Conquests before being returned to the Time Before Soap.

I need a wig that looks like this hair. I’ll give you one guess as to why I need it.

Where in Austin can I find such a thing?

Halloween Song #5 - “I’m Only Joking” by Kongos

I like to put the occasional contemporary song into lists like these, and see if I regret it three years later.  I only heard this song this morning, and thought it had a spooky drumbeat.  The video is dumb, so just listen to it and imagine your own weird hipster vampire orgy party.

Halloween Song #4 - “Wolf Moon” by Type O Negative, live from Bizarre Festival - 8/22/1999 - Cologne,Germany

Pretty much every song by Type O Negative belongs on this list (except their not-very-merry Christmas song, “Red Water.”)  You’ll definitely see them pop up again.

And yes, I know this song isn’t about werewolves.

My comic shop has won a lot of awards, but getting recognized as one of the best by Mountain Dew makes me giddy in a weird way. What do you do when the drink you’ve loved your whole life tells you it loves you back? @greenlabel @AustinBooks
