I have always loved singer-songwriter Ingrid Michaelson – and there’s even more to love with the announcement of her Stranger Things inspired record coming out June 28!

She has released two singles so far from the record, “Missing You” and my personal favorite “Jealous“. Ingrid tweeted the following about her inspiration around the tune:

spookysounds

Greetings my spooky friends – it has been over a month since I last posted and I have no idea where all that time has gone. This year is flying by, but it isn’t a bad thing since that’ll bring Halloween season that much closer to us.

For today’s post, I wanted to share some of my favorite records with you that will keep you in an eerie spirit while we wait for summer to bring us Halloween once more. When I’m not obsessing over my favorite holiday, I am obsessing over music. I myself am a musician and songwriter with a strong passion for concerts, collecting vinyl, and immersing myself in music.

I was thinking the other day that I should share some of my favorite albums that I find especially spooky with you. Take a look at this list and share with me your favorite macabre records and together let’s sing these tunes loud to help us ring in Halloween 2019!

13 Days of Creepmas!

merry creepmas

Merry Creepmas to all! I’m so excited to be bringing a bit of Halloween cheer into December by participating in the 13 Days of Creepmas.

What is Creepmas you ask? This is the season where Halloween lovers and Halloween online content creators share frights, delights and spooky things to keep the spirit alive.

Just as retailers roll out all things Christmas in September and make us feel the Holiday stress before Halloween comes around, us creepers strike back with chills and thrills to bring out the most unusual, strange and creepy things about the holidays!

Be sure to visit the Creepmas website to see all of the bloggers and folks online who will be sharing Creepmas ideas from Dec. 1 – 13. I’ll be posting some fun recipes, ideas and outfits for my first Creepmas.

And to kick off Creepmas, check out composer Myuu on YouTube (or find a complete dark holiday playlist on his website here) for a playlist of eerie and dark renditions of Christmas classics:

My 2018 Monster Mash Bash!

Monster Mash Bash

This year’s Monster Mash Bash was a hit and a scary good time was had by all! I appreciated everyone’s compliments towards my creepy castle – some guests assumed it was just to liven up the party but I had to divulge, this creepy castle gets creeped out on Sept. 1 every year. The only way I know to enjoy Halloween decor and hoarding habits is to display it sooner and longer!

Keep reading to see some photos of my guests and their costumes and to get some inspiration for your upcoming or next Halloween shindig.

Becoming Ash Williams

I think I decided that I was going to be Ash Williams for Halloween this year sometime last year.  It’s not unusual for me to keep a running list of all of the characters I might want to transform into come Halloween. The idea hit me while watching the Ash VS Evil Dead series. I was enjoying it so much I decided I needed a piece of the Evil Dead universe myself and become the deadite-fighting-anti-hero: Ash!
