Devil, incubus, gentleman, martini, scoundrel

The vampire, the ghost, and the monster...

Tastes like Halloween...

Count Chocula, Fruit Brute, Frankenberry, Yummy Mummy, Booberry.

Being that Halloween has always held a most favorite appreciation, undoubtedly for the Dracling, on the lighter side of the darkside, I have partaken in these creature delights since forever. When it comes to cereal, while others ate their Wheaties or whatever, these fellows have graced this monster's bowl {of course, also acquiring the Addams Family and Batman cereals as well, yet were unfortunately transitory}.


[Also listen to 'Monster Adventures In Outer Space', and 'Monsters Go Disco']

The above 45 'flexi' record was on the backside of the thrilling threesome's cereal boxes, when cereals still contained such fun toys and prizes within or upon them, veritable tricks and treats, which really added another dimension of amusement, along with the tasty delights within, which one could play with while enjoying these sugary confections acquired as often as possible, although predictably more available during the Falloween season, sometimes lingering on into the new year, which always somehow seems to end up on My table. These can be enjoyed with or without milk, and perhaps would make an amusing addition to festivities presented in an appropriate receptacle for guests.

Well, contingent on being the most amusing time of year, the most current versions of Count Chocula, Booberry, & Frankenberry are in stores now {which I Am pleased to possess, brought in by The Witch}, not including the discontinued Yummy Mummy, Fruit Brute {a werewolf}, or the rare, but still available Quisp {an alien}. Cereals based on timeless Universal Monsters, evocative to the hilt, and a joy to consume.

I Am reminded of that interview segment in the Danzig Lucifuge Video with drummer Chuck Biscuits wherein he talks about these monster cereals.

The backs of these boxes feature "Monster Showdown", where the trio compete as to whose cereal is the scariest; you'll have to see whose clever antics wins this round! ∞

Addendum: Same idea as rice krispie marshmallow squares except instead of Rice Krispies, use Count Chocula, Booberry, or Frankenberry, or all {recommended}, and even add some Reese's Pieces / M&M's, if so inclined.

"I fully endorse it! Let's try it at once!"

I have long since enjoyed these pizzas already, but I Am very pleased by what is being done for this season's Halloween celebration. The same delicious pizza pies, but now decorated with monster characters is amusingly splendid. I first became aware of these when I viewed the entertaining gangster ads for them, plus the eventual claim of being "The Official Pizza of Halloween", so thusly intrigued to have an 'educated' opinion on their quality, I decided to give them a try, & found that they are actually pretty damned good for store-bought. Great for dinners with the little monsters, perfectly complimenting the monster breakfast cereals.

Then, when I saw they were included in The Addams Family film {the scene where the progeny are selling lemonade}, it became even more of a favorite.*

* I actually did experience something like that scene, while on My way to see the subsequent Addams Family Values, a troupe of girl scouts were selling their cookies out in front of a supermarket, when asked if I wished to purchase a box {they are actually quite delicious}; of course, yielding to temptation, not wanting to waste such a perfect opportunity, the resultant question was of course, "Are they made from real girl scouts?" It was a hoot! ∞

The Shuttle has landed

In the wake of the Autumnal Equinox, the space shuttle 'Endeavour' flew by The Noctuary today. From My vantage point, I witnessed it glide over the nearby mountains, and an impressive spectacle it was. Reminded Me of when the Nazi Zeppelin premiered to the awestruck German people, which surely inspired confidence in the populace. It also reminded Me of the stealth bomber cruising over these hilltops one misty morning on New Year's Day to head off the Rose Parade. That particular one also featured Elvira on a Universal Monsters float. It looked like the bat plane, like a wingspread Lucifer arising from behind the horizon.

I happened to take a look out when I first perceived an atmospheric vibration, followed by the roar of jet engines and the massive NASA 747 looming in the sky with the shuttle firmly perched on top - it was one Hell of a sight.

I was reminded of The Challenger & Columbia {1/28/XX, 2/1/XXXVII} predecessors bursting in the sky, embodying the scientific method, even by their sacrifice, that the space program may continue with precious lessons learned.

Realizing & shaping the future, frequently making science fiction into fact, there is nothing like them. Through them, the amount of data and knowledge that has been gained has been remarkable, from depositing drones to photography, collecting samples for further study, enlightenment to likely travel to foreign planets.


Taking a four-hour flight throughout various Kalifornia landmarks, & various points in-between, like City Hall, The Griffith Observatory, Disneyland, The Golden Gate Bridge, & the state capitol Sacramento, greeted by 'Devilinos' & actress Nichelle Nichols, who played Uhura in Star Trek, it landed amidst fanfare and cheers; finally returning to its birthplace in 'Los Diablos', The City of Dark Angels, which after being celebrated from its relocation from a hanger at LAX through city streets to be honored at the Science Center, in the shadow of JPL & Devil's Gate; in launch position once situated.

Viewing and contemplating the Promethean shuttle asserts the Darwinian nature of technological progression, the feats of this infernal machine promotes the innovation of the superior man towards the essence of the upwards evolution of the human species, by those precious few iconoclasts who dare venture into the stars. ∞
