Tonight,
Saturday night, was supposed to be
the Halloween celebration...

But they'll be no Moonlight Drive,
like last year, tonight ...

I'll be grounded,
as a typhoon has blown in...

So I've got popcorn, candy,
and made a plate of brownies,
and revisited my list of
13 of my all-time favorite Halloween movies.


I scored with 2 from that list :


Ed Wood's, "Plan B From Outer Space";
featuring Vampira and Bela Lugosi.

Bram Stoker's Dracula;
featuring Gary Oldman, Winona Ryder, Anthony Hopkins, Keanu Reeves, Richard E. Grant, Cary Elwes, Bill Campbell, Sadie Frost, & Tom Waits.
Directed by Frances Ford Coppola,
with music by Wojciech Kilar.

And last,
was this golden nugget,
a classic, not on my list :




The Mummy

Boris Karloff, Zita Johann, David Manners
Directed by Karl Freund
1932









My All Hallow's Eve iPod list:

Danse Macabre - Camille Saint Saëns
Red Right Hand - Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds
I Was A Teenage Werewolf - The Cramps
Waltzinblack - The Stranglers
Tubular Hell - Van Helsing's Curse
Season of the Witch - Dr. John
Carmina Burana - Carl Orff
Symphonie Fatastique: Dream of the Witches Sabbath - Hector Berlioz
Belladonna - Siouxsie & The Banshees
Dominatrix Sleeps Tonite - Dominatrix
Witche's Promise - Jethro Tull
Noctem Aeternus (Eternal Night) - Midnight Syndicate
The Time Warp - Rocky Horror Picture Show
Love My Way - The Psychedelic Furs
Autumn Leaves - Cannonball Adderly, Miles Davis, Hank Jones, Sam Jones, Art Blakey

I've been sick with a miserable cold.

My dear friend Akie dropped by
with a care package :
packets of soup mix, kiwis,
and one big, gorgeous pear.

My upcoming 4 month tour for 2011,
that I've been waiting for almost 2 months for a confirmation for,
went

Combine this with a recent split with another music agency
for idiocy beyond the pale,
and you've got one surly - girl- y...

I got out my watercolors,
to paint my blues away...



Here's my "Pear-Shaped" series:

I went out yesterday
to enjoy a warm, sunny Sunday.

The opposite was predicted by the weather forecast.

So what was thought of as a rainy day indoors,
became serendipitous:

It has been lovely October weather, lately...

Yesterday, I visited Roppongi Hills.

Just a couple shots:

Walk this Way

My gig is one week from today,
at The Shiba Park Hotel...




It truly feels like October with the orange-blossom fragrance
of the now blooming Osmanthus, or kinmokusei...

I've recently finished a new Digital Art piece.
It is the first of this year.

I will post it very soon...

October is here
My absolute favorite
Sight, sound, taste, smell, touch...

© 2010 Pamela MacCarthy



When I need to escape for a minute,
I get on my bike and head for the river.
The river is my dope.

I went late afternoon to cut some pampas grass,
or susuki, as it's called here.

But no silver sprouts yet!

Other wild grasses,
cosmos flowers,
jumping grasshoppers,
and a lone guitarist picking out a tune in the distance,
were there ...

I walked along,
at the time of day when everything gets a fiery glow-
I found some gnarled, dried milkweed to cut.

Here are a few other things
that caught my eye:
