Another Silly Halloween

*DISCLAIMER: If you want to go straight to the music, head to the bottom of this post and click on "Click Here to Continue Reading."*

Hope you all had a happy Halloween!

Almost every year, I get quite amped up for my second favorite holiday. Unfortunately, this year I spent it writing and incredibly frightened by this news (for strike stories, I find that this site, this site, and this site are the best). The strike truly affects everyone in entertainment, even non-Guild writers like myself. My writing partner and I had two showrunner meetings in the next week, both of which will most likely be postponed indefinitely now. Here's hoping The Great Pumpkin bestows a negotiating miracle...

Despite the subdued spirit this year, I did dress up for work. I'm fairly certain I won the costume competition. In keeping with my TV theme from last year and the year before, my 2007 costume was "Kenneth the Korean Page"...

It was nice to dust off the old Page uniform. Still smelled like poverty and alcohol. Ah, the Page Program. Best time of my life.

Anyway, email me your Halloween costume and I'll post it here, or just tell me what you were in the comments! I've put together a little 31-song Halloween mix, so click below and enjoy while you eat the best treat ever invented.

I spoke to the Great Pumpkin and he said no problem...One miracle coming up! You guys look so cute in your uniforms/costumes. Oh and thanks for the Halloween treat.

Just wanted to say I'm crossing my fingers and toes that a settlement is reached Sunday!

As for Halloween, I went to a party as a never-nude.

I'm sorry the Great Pumpkin didn't come thru for you. Hope the strike doesn't last long. I'm gonna miss my new TV shows.

Oh man, I passed two of the best costumes ever this year on Frenchman Street - Dr. Who (the David Tennant version) and ... wait for it... THREE-HOLE PUNCH JIM.

I only recognized him because of your outfit a year ago! He was pretty excited to be recognized, even if it was by a slightly drunk Kwanzaa. Did I mention that I was Kwanzaa? I was with a bunch of other holidays.

I'm super upset about the writer's strike. I hope everything works out for you though!

In the mean time is there any chance of a Soundtrack Saturday/Sunday to distract everyone as tv shows begin to taper off? Please?
