great pumpkins, music, and vampires, oh my!

Yesterday's poll about favorite Halloween TV specials/episodes had a clear winner: It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown! Thanks to all who participated.

So here's an appropriate wish for you all:

Can anyone recommend good Halloween music mixes? So far I've really enjoyed the Halloween mix by maidoforange, "Songs of Death and Wickedness" by fyrdrakken, and "Music for Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse" by baylor_mixes.

Incidentally, I also would suggest checking out "Revolution Science Fiction's 2005 Halloweenie Boonanza of Geek-Centric Fun 'n Such" and the History Channel's "History of Halloween" site.


And now a poem for the day:

In tombs of gold and lapis lazuli
Bodies of holy men and women exude
Miraculous oil, odour of violet.

But under heavy loads of trampled clay
Lie bodies of the vampires full of blood;
Their shrouds are bloody and their lips are wet.


"Oil and Blood," William Butler Yeats
