"You're gonna need a bigger boat"

We're shark free (hopefully!) but us East Coasters have experienced difficulties.
An earthquake (my first) and a hurricane in the same week! It's been insane!
Though I can't complain. No one here was harmed. Hope you all are okay?!

Anyway, I have much to do, including passing on blog awards to some of you!
But first, since sharks are on my mind, 
I must share this birthday card of mine...

It plays the Jaws theme and inside it says:
"Don't Look Now... It's another Birthday... And it's Headed Right at YOU!"

Best card ever from the best cousin ever! ♥
(The Birds card was equally awesome though!)

Also check out this badass bathing suit...

Look out Ariel!!!!

It was made by Black Milk, but it's no longer for sale, sadly.

Want more Jaws goodness?
Then swim on over to Totally Jinxed and check out her tribute here!
(Be sure to wish her a happy belated birthday too!)

"I wish I could write as mysterious as a cat"

Upon discovering there was such a thing as Black Cat Appreciation Day,
I knew I had to post about it.
Especially since yesterday would've been cat loving author H. P. Lovecraft's birthday!
Hence the Cthulhu-Cat above.

I decided to post my favorite adaptation of E. A. Poe's The Black Cat.
It's from the second segment of Tales of Terror (1962),
starring Peter Lorre and Vincent Price

You can watch it here, starting at the 3 minute mark...

Own a black and/or strange cat? You should submit his or her picture here.

If you do, please post it here too, so I can include it in a video I'm making.
The power of creepy cat compels you!

As for me, I'm currently pet free, sadly.

Lucy Cuts Vincent's Price

Lucille Ball and Vincent Price not only share a birth year,
they also shared scenes in this episode of Here's Lucy...

You can watch the whole hilarious episode (in two parts) here!

[Fact: Vincent Price and Desi Arnaz Jr. also starred in House of the Long Shadows (1983)]

This post is in honor of Lucille Ball's birthday,
which would've been Saturday, August 6th.
Happy 100th! ♥

Want to see Betty White go on a Killing Spree?!

Okay, not Betty, but another awesome old lady?
Her name is Cybill Siegel,
and she hopes to hack her way into your hearts!

Cybill's sad story turned gory starts at her 80th birthday party.
She discovers that her kids have secretly arranged to put her in a nursing home.
 Not only that, her estranged drunk of a son also plans to steal her vintage car.
Needless to say, mama is mad and decides to make them pay... permanently!

Want to see Killer Granny on the big screen?
Then kindly make a monetary donation here.
You'll receive some sweet stuff for doing so!

[Note: I'm not affiliated with this campaign,
just trying to help by spreading the word. :]

Sideshow by the Seashore

Which would you rather see as a weekly series?

1.) Bloody Beach of the Week
2.) Spooky Song of the Week
Or 3.) Freak of the Week

In this post you get all three!

Presenting Onethirtyeight and Jan Stephens' Coney Island Spooktacular!

Hope you all enjoyed the show as much as I did!
Did you spot some familiar faces in the audience?

Speaking of Coney IslandI went there in Fall of 2004.
Sadly the Sideshow was closed then though.
I did however snap this shot of where it would've been:

Doesn't this look like a post-apocalyptic scene?

Although the beach wasn't bloody (sorry to disappoint),
it was still sort of eerie looking, eh? So desolate.
