To shave or not to shave? That is the question. Welcome to Movember.
Movember starts on Friday. You may be asking yourself if you’re going to participate. Your lady may not be thrilled. Your boss even less so. You may even encounter a cynic here or there. The idea of being 100% clean-shaven on November 1st may simply be a terrifying thought to you.
Is the beard so sacred that one cannot go mo for a month? You’d likely find a few men in Joseph D.R. OLeary’s universe who’d say so…
De-mythologizing the creepy bird mummies of Northern Tanzania.
The internet can be a spooky place, haunted by goblins and trolls (lots of trolls) and seedy mischief makers who roam its dark corridors with nothing better to do than frighten the more wholesome members of our online community. To a troll, everyday is Halloween.
And everyday, the internet ghouls wrap their tentacles around quirky news stories in order to cast a pall of darkness upon your Facebook feed. In this instance, it's the story of a lake in northern Tanzania that instantly turns all its living inhabitants into stone! "OMG NOOO THAT LAKE IS EVIL AND KILLS PRETTY FLAMINGOS" was basically the internet's reaction.
A century ago, kids dropped the cute act and brought the fear at Halloween.
Today, there are too many rubber reproductions, faulty costume props, and half-ass celebrity impersonators. The origins of fright lived centuries ago and their hand-made creations trump anything you'll find on Amazon.
In all these images, the costumes are all original pieces. Which is disturbing. They're costumes inspired solely through one's imagination. Stripped of mass-made props, these hand-made costumes crank up the eeriness with ease.
Don’t walk down the dark, haunted hallway, we’ve got your horror guide, right here.
We’re about to get creepy. Very, very creepy. It’s the eve of All Hallow’s Eve, and Huckberry’s got some treats, and a few tricks up our sleeve.
These skeletal saints have their own spooky story.
In the late 1500s, a series of tombs were discovered beneath the streets of Rome. Interred therein were the long-decayed skeletons of early Christian martyrs.
Exhumed, these skeletons were sent to churches throughout Europe where they were dressed with wigs, expensive cloth, crowns, and rare jewels. So-dressed, they were replacements for the holy relics lost to the Protestant Reformation.
Eye catching with a story to boot, these are costumes that would prompt a lot of conversation.
Michael Paul Smith brings us back in time with his model size community, Elgin Park.
Michael Paul Smith developed, what he calls, a “quirky hobby.” After having collected 300 diecast model cars (The Danbury Mint, The Frankin Mint, and West Coast Precision Diecasts), Michael sat back and realized that having these replicas sit on his shelves wasn’t enough.
He wanted to contextualize them. He built a 1/24th scale gas station. It wasn’t enough. Before long, he had built fifteen dioramas. All scale. All with a vigilant attention to detail. He began calling his fictional town Elgin Park.
Three fall cocktails to warm your belly, from our friends at Mason Shaker.
It's fall. And, as summer meant bourbon, fall, too means bourbon. (Can we get enough? No. No we can't.) So we asked Josh and Eric over at Mason Shaker to give us the run down on a couple fall cocktails. They generously agreed.
Here's three deliciously simple drinks, right in time for the cold weather. If your bar's in need of that handy shaker jar, head over to the shop to pick one up.
