The song is "2 Big Pumpkins," written by Fred Schneider of the B-52s, and the video was produced as a result of Elvira collaborating with Ryan Adams on his new video, "Gimme Something Good." In exchange for her appearance in that one, the producers filmed a video for her song as well. Talk about doubling the fun! Double videos, double pumpkins, double Ds...
|Me and the Mistress|
It was one year ago today, on a day just like today, that I reported I was on my way to see Elvira perform her Knott's Scary Farm show Sinema Seance. Last year I was lucky enough to meet the Mistress of the Dark after the show and get my copy of "2 Big Pumpkins"/"13 Nights of Halloween" signed. At that time, the record had just come out, and since it was released so close to Halloween, Third Man Records decided to pull it and hold out for an earlier October release this year. As it turned out, I was one of the very few who ordered the record on its release day last year, so Elvira herself hadn't even seen it yet! We had a fun little conversation about it and she rubbed the heat reactive ink on the sleeve to make the Elvira image appear--yes ghouls, Elvira's fingers were all over my 7". With that tit-illating image in mind, here she is with her hands all over those prize gourds she's famous for:
Like an awesome sequel to the best horror film, I am once again just hours away from seeing Elvira in her new Knott's Scary Farm show, Elvira's Big Top. I already know my Halloween is going to be a blast, and I hope yours will be, too. So get your costumes ready, put razor blades in your apples, and forget those pesky morals! Until next year, happy Halloween and stay turned, my fine fiends!
