Happy Halloween!

The most wonderful day of the year has finally arrived! It's always a little bittersweet because that means Halloween is over for now, but it's also time to start making plans for next October. For me, it'll be a tall order to top this one--Sharon Needles, the B-52, a visit to one of Poe's homes, horror films galore, a Halloween party filled with friends last night, and tons of trick or treaters tonight--but I'm up for the challenge!

The last song of this year is also bittersweet because it comes from one of the saddest losses of a year filled with sad losses. "Scary Monsters and Super Creeps" comes from David Bowie's 1980 album of the same name. Bowie's influence on those of us who love the inventive, the strange, the glamorous, and fearless risk-taking can't be measured. He's left this realm, but the dead are always closest to us on Halloween, and we can still celebrate the immense body of amazing music he left us throughout his long and eclectic career. So until next year, let's dance!
