It's alive! IT'S ALIVE! The Halloween countdown is live and ready to count the ways until All Hallow's Eve! Hard to believe, but this is my tenth haunted hoedown. The tenth time that my mild-mannered blog, Neato Coolville has turned into Neato Ghoulville! Again we will celebrate all things fun and creepy everyday during the month of October. Our pal Vlad will be returning with some of his monsterific Castle Vlad videos. A new batch of horror movie desktop wallpapers have been created. Plus there will be lots of random weirdness and surprises along the way.

Now go grab a paper bag, some scissors and glue and make yourself a nifty Halloween mask just like these kids.

By the way, before we get started with the countdown, I just want to say...what's up with Owl Boy? In the neat 1952 Halloween illustration above, all the kids are laughing and having a fun time but Owl Boy in the corner looks out of place. Hmm...I bet he creeped out all the kids at that Halloween party back in '52.

I like the kid cosplaying as "Weird Al" Yankovic behind Owl Boy!

Linda - Thanks for stopping by and the nice comment! Have yourself a happy October too!

Phillyradiogeek - I didn't notice that kid but you are right, that kid does have the "Weird" Al look!

It wouldn't be Halloween without you. Happy 10th Anniversary!
