♫ Music for careening into the holidays: “Domino Polka” by Ray Henry and His Orchestra.
Whoah, Neil Gaiman started teaching at Bard College this year! I was a student there when Sandman helped reintroduce me to comics. http://www.tor.com/blogs/2013/10/neil-gaiman-bard-college-professor
The year after I was born, legendary DJ Larry Levan remixed legendary muppet Cookie Monster.
I got brainfreeze while washing my hair in the coldest shower I’ve ever taken today. I hope the power comes back by tomorrow!
When the power goes out…
…the ghost cat appears!

This Halloween I hung out with my friend Anne as she doled out treats to hordes of kids, and I donned the traditional bedsheet ghost costume so rarely seen these days. I almost didn’t bother because even with help it came out crooked, but I’m glad I did because kids’ reactions were a hoot (the photo’s just a pose; I sat on the stoop with Anne).
The first pair shook my hand before leaving. One boy asked if I was a Mister or Miss Ghost and got agitated when I played coy, trying to get a close look and saying things like “What is your gender?” and “Show me your mustache!” We had a couple of skeptics, too; one said, “Nice costume, but I’m not buying it,” and later another said, “You’re not a ghost!” — but only after peering closely :)
Anyone know a good way to share playlists online? I was using Youtube because it has a lot of music but their ads ruin the experience (I only noticed recently on a friend’s computer; I use an adblocker on mine). I basically want to post online mixtapes but I haven’t kept up with streaming music stuff so I don’t know what’s out there or if it’s even feasible given copyright issues.
