Saturday 9: Monster Mash (1962)
1) In your younger days, did you ever trick or treat while dressed as a monster or ghoul?
I think that I was more like a Cinderella- with those crappy masks that would fog up my glasses.
2) Do you enjoy being frightened by celluloid boys-gone-bad, like Michael Myers (Halloween) or Jason (Friday the 13th)?
nah. I’m too logical to enjoy that stuff.
3) When you were a kid, did you ever TP a neighbor’s house or indulge in any other Halloween acts of vandalism? (Don’t worry, the statute of limitations is up.)
Actually, we did that in college.
4) Will you be attending any Halloween parties this year? If so, will you dress up?
Gal is having a party. Weren’t you invited?
5) Can you see any Halloween decorations as you answer these 9 questions?
Nope. Just a bunch of barking canines.
6) While Halloween is most popular in the United States and Canada, and isn’t really celebrated at all in Japan or South Korea. How would you explain our Halloween customs to a visitor from another land?
Free candy and lots of door bells ringing.
7) “Monster Mash” is one of Halloween’s most played songs. Are you happy to hear it every year? Or does it set your teeth on edge?
To be honest, I’m not sure that I have heard it in a long long time.
8) This week’s featured artist, Bobby “Boris” Pickett, started as a stand-up comedian who incorporated his imitations of Boris Karlof and Bela Lugosi into his act. Can you impersonate anyone?
Count von Count
9) Dick Clark was an impossibly young looking 33 in this week’s featured clip. Are you often told you look good for your age?
Dick Clark still looks young and he’s dead. Before mentalpause I was of a more youthful appearance so I’ve been told.
