Spooky Tunes

Happy Day After World Goth Day, all.  If you're into listening to music about things that go bump in the night, I recommend listening to The Long Losts.  They're a goth, punk and rock & roll band that celebrates all things Halloween, Autumn, horror and romance.  The band's sound consists of haunting vocals, spooky keyboards, horror sound effects over rock, metal, punk guitar, bass and drum rhythms with lyrics to match.

If you're interested in purchasing The Longs Losts debut album, "Scary Songs to Play in the Dark," head on over to their bandcamp site.  There, you'll have the option of buying either the CD or digital album.  But wait!  There's more!

Want to see The Long Losts live?  Well, good news.  They'll be performing this September at Voltaire's Necrocomiccon: Enter the Black Labyrinth.  Still haven't gotten your tickets yet?  Then, hurry up and CLICK HERE!!!

What's Up? What's Down?

Last week was kind of screwy.  On the upside, I signed up for instagram, got some work done on my latch hook project, applied for be a Spooky Box Club reviewer and had plans to go with my cousin to see Avengers: Age of Ultron.  Then, towards the weekend, things took a hard left.

Saturday morning, my mother and I had an eviction scare.  There was a lot of fast packing and calling of family members for help involved.  Luckily, rent money was scrounged up at the last minute.  So, no panic moving for us.  As for going to the movies, that didn't happen.

My cousin and I were originally going to go see Age of Ultron on Friday.  She sends me a text Friday morning telling me that she forgot she had a doctor's appointment that day and asked if we could go on Saturday.  I agreed and went back to sleep.  Saturday rolls around and she forgot again.

She made all these other plans.  When, I called her out on it, she tried to squeeze it in to her schedule.  Already feeling aggravated and annoyed about the packing/unpacking and other family drama, I declined her offer.  Don't fucking make plans with me to do something if you're just going to flake out.

A Necrocomiccon Miracle

Last week, something happened that I did not see coming.  I was given 2 free tickets to Voltaire's Necrocomiccon: Enter the Black Labyrinth.  This is the best news that I have ever gotten.  I immediately started flailing around like a muppet.  This is going to be the first comic convention that I have ever been to.

I'm finally going to get to meet Voltaire and learn the secret handshakeTold my brother about this over the weekend and he said he'd go with me.  Also, as an early birthday present, he said he would get me a room at the hotel where the convention is going to be held so I can at least spend 2 days there.  As awesome as that is, I want to take part in all 3 days of the event.

So, I'm going to have to get my hustle on and come up with the money for one more night.  I also need some spending money for convention swag.  Hoping to make this happen before September rolls around.  You may now return to your regularly scheduled activities.
