  4. Cure-related pumpkins - I've collected a few of them on Flickr but would love links to more.

    Here's the collection right now -

    I can't add my own pics to the collection, but here are two of mine - The Top one is the one I just carved yesterday and the Nightmare one is from last year.

    My special blessing for Cure peeps, Craig and the Band, is may all of our most cherished hopes and wishes and dark dreams come true!

  13. I guess this is the season for adding Cure songs to your Halloween playlist, all the cool kids are doing it:

    Lullaby makes the list -

    and speaking of Burn, MTV has a series out about the 15th anniversary of the Crow, mentions The Cure's contribution to the soundtrack -

  14. I wonder, was Justin Schneider born a tool, or did he cultivate it? :-p

    Rev, thanks for the blessing! :-)

  16. The Crow is an absolutely phenomenal film (one of my top 10 and it's first sequel is underrated too Mr Pope), however it never lived up to its awesome soundtrack. If it did The Crow would be the greatest film ever.

  17. how does one reach you these days, Craig ??

    ReplyDelete
  18. AHAHAH! WUT? never drunk up an ewok! :D

  19. 7bluestars, I think that for someone to become a tool on the level of Justin Schneider requires a lifelong commitment to douchebaggery. Just sayin'

  20. Damn Ewoks. Not contempt with just ruining Return of the Jedi, now they have to screw up Halloween too.
