oh my gourd

Every fall my friend Laura paints gourds for Halloween. They are the COOLEST and they sell like hotcakes. How can you resist these gouly gourds? If you're in the Marlboro area, go buy some at Trombetta's Garden Center and have some delicious homemade ice cream while you're at it. These gourds look like evil friends. AWESOME!

excuse me...

... while I retire to my fur-lined sensory deprivation skull designed by Joep van Lieshout of Atelier Van Lieshout. I'll take one please.

completely awful song...

...but excellent footage of The Buddy Deane Show circa 1962. Some chick is singing a horrible song that she wrote. This was at the beginning of the dance craze era that started with the Twist, The Pony and Mashed Potato. Where in the crowd is the Amber Von Tussle character? They all look like secretaries. Waaaaaaaaaaaaahhh!
