Photo Op: Halloween Hangover
Here we have a hodgepodge assortment of photos taken over the last three days. Seasonal mischief. Graveyards. Costumes. Haunted Houses. Booze. Satanism. Cross-dressers. Jacky’lanterns. Candy. Bacon-wrapped hot dogs. Abraham Lincolns drinking Mai-Tais. KCAL reporters. Everything you’ve come to love about Halloween and much, much less. Let’s begin.
Dia De Los Muertos
Hollywood Forever Cemetery, Tinseltown, USA
Two people in a rowboat boat is just fine. Five? Five’s pushing it. Five is a number that sinks the edge of the boat precariously close to the water’s level. Five’s no good for me but five is not a problem for you five lushes.

Hallowed Haunting Grounds
Next-to-last-day-ever of a 33-year-run
Studio City, USA
I waited an hour in the cold next to rambunctious teenagers. My throat grew sore. My cheap poly leisure suitcoat screamed to be constructed of warm non-synthetic material. I grew colder still. I yearned for coffee. Finally I reached the yard. A silence engulfed the crowd. I began to look about. Chapel bells, owls and breathy spirits beckoned from the darkness. Very slowly, I began to discern something in the murky gloom. Something troubling. Something…unnatural. Man-made. Something cold and wiry. A reporter’s microphone. KCAL had stashed their crap in the yard during pauses between sporadic interviews. Flash reveals all, boys. Flash reveals all.
All Hallow’s Eve
West Hollywood, USA
Is he playing with a full deck? Definitely not, but seven or eight additional cards is a good start.
