Stuff I Dig: Halloween Special

Hello boils and ghouls! Halloween is just around the coronerso here’s a creepily comical piece of animation from the short-lived 1998 Fox Kids cartoon, Toonsylvania! Featuring the vocal talents of David Gore-ner and Killy West, it’s a twisted tale about a monster played by Brad Scare-ett who gets a birthday present he’ll never forget from Frankenstein’s assistant, Igor (Wayne Fright). Here’s Darla Doily – Demon Doll!

In honor of the day Marty McFly, Doc Brown and Jennifer Parker arrive in the future from 1985 to prevent Marty’s future son from being framed for a bank robbery committed by Griff Tannen, the cybernetically enhanced and brutally insane grandson of former high school bully Biff Tannen (I’m really, really into these movies), here’s one of my favorite stand-up bits from actor and comedian Thomas F.

Food is expensive and lines are long. Do yourself a favor and bring a refillable water bottle and something to munch on whilst in line. Bring along granola bars, pretzels, Red Vines; whatever you can fit in your gear and preferably, something you don’t mind sharing. Making friends in line via food can be key when you need to take a potty break and dip out of line for the bathroom…
