    I don't know if any of you crazy kids still dress up or not, but I like seeing clever costumes.

    I absolutely HATE those Dr. Pepper commercials with the vendor guy, but for $28 this is a pretty cheap way to get a full costume. Well, you have to supply your own shorts. Actually, I guess you don't have to wear shorts, but then that's whole different costume vibe.

    Off focus, but I DID laugh when Dr. Pepper guy gave Flutie a boys medium shirt.

    Great thread idea, carry on...

    I'm building a couple of pine six-sided caskets right now. My wife's friend said she would velvet-line the interior if I built her one (hence why I made two), but the damn things are massive when you make them life-sized and and currently take up a good chunk of the living room.

    A buddy of mine works for a funeral home and he got us a dented casket one year. We used to do a pretty good job scaring the neighborhood kids. They couldn't tell if there was a dummy in the casket or if it was a real person, so the suspense was what was so great. Who was in the casket would have on a clown mask, too. We had more fun sneaking up behind the parents. "Oh, go on up there, Billy. Nothing's going to hu-" BOO! "GAHHHH!" Good times.

    That's what my wife really wants is a real funeral casket. The only way to get one here it seems is either she'll put thousands or be really quick and stealthy with a shovel & pick-up.

    If anybody else wants to order one of these, FYI: I got mine in the mail yesterday, and it's freaking hilarious. The wig-hat, flip glasses and Walkman headphones are worth the $28, so the fanny pack puts it over the top. FANNY PACK! The shirt isn't an acutal collared knit shirt - it's screen printed. But, still.

    I'm guessing Wonder Woman and Pennywise will probably be the most popular costumes this year.

    Almost finished the caskets, only need paint. Built them old school, no power tools. Saw, hammer, screwdriver, straight edge, plain. Eyeballed every cut. Why? Fucked if I know.

    ..... even if it's pine don't fucking do that if you already use tools every minute of the day for a living. You'll feel like you played Jai-Lai with carpal tunnel syndrome for a solid week.

    Goes as Schneider from One Day At A Time. It's the easiest and cheapest costume ever and people will howl when they see you. Don't forget the smokes rolled into the sleeve and the bad teenage moustache.

    Oh, if you're going to go in a costume that none of today's kids will get, why don't you just go as a hobo?

    Those little shits better know who Schneider is, or I'll kick their ass. I knew who the fuck Ralph and Ed were when I was a young lad, they sure as shit better recognize Gimmie A Break.

    I'm going back thirty years from MY time there. I watched the Honeymooners reruns as a kid in the 80's Christ, my dad would piss his pants. There was not one single episode that Ralph didn't threaten to knock his wife the fuck out. He never acted on it, but between that and Doctors in cigarette commercials recommending to you, the viewer, which strychnine and cancer-laced smokes will give your T-Zone the proper smooth and mild flavour.......it's safe to say times have changed.

    There's your costume: 1950's cigarette commercial doctor. Have a doctor's costume, t-zone chart, porn 'stache and then just smoke sexy like Mr. Don D.

    Yeah, I'm familiar with the Honeymooners. But, Schneider was on One Day at a Time, not Gimme A Break. Sometimes I think you post too soon after smoking a bowl.

    The Thing is the best horror movie of all time. Followed by the Shining. Then Exorcist.

    Discuss.

    Scariest movie I have ever seen...Evil Dead 2013 remake, then Poltergeist, then the Exorcist.

    Monster Squad for the win though.

    The Shining is kind of.the pearl jam of horror movies...in the genre but Not, you know?

    The Thing is definitely one of my horror faves.

    The ones that usually occupy tops spots for me are:

    Alien
    Suspiria
    Kill Baby, Kill
    The Haunting (1963)
    The Exorcist
    Shadow of the Vampire

    At least, insofar as actually scary horror.

    If we are going with everything in the horror genre then I would add Theatre of Blood, The Abominable Dr. Phibes, and House of Usher for sure.

    For entertaining horror, I quite enjoyed Jason X.
