Happy Celebration Of Hell, Dear Readers!

by Jim Newell

For the second straight year, your Wonkette and operative “Roommate Rob” would like to remind you, the delicate readers, not to get murdered this weekend. Can it happen? Anything can happen, on Halloween. [YouTube]

Tim Curry is not now, nor has he ever been, very butch.

freakishlystrong October 30, 2009 at 6:05 pm

Fer fucks sake, I’m a straight woman and I’m considering a sex change so I can be a gay man…

SayItWithWookies October 30, 2009 at 6:06 pm

He’s right, anything can happen. In fact, around midnight I’ll probably be turning into a bar.

[re=447636]Tommmcatt[/re]: Don’t be mean to Gay Donny Osmond.

1. David Bowie looks weird in this… I mean, Tim Curry looks like a cross between Peter Murphy and Colonel Sanders in this.
2. The 80′s really fucking sucked.

rocktonsammy October 30, 2009 at 6:09 pm

Halloween has always been an excuse for a gay pride parade in the fall.

Except, I love the Snickers.

Extemporanus October 30, 2009 at 6:14 pm

[re=447636]Tommmcatt[/re]: He’s a bat out of hellooo, Dolly!

[re=447638]SayItWithWookies[/re]: Don’t be redundant.

PoignancySelz October 30, 2009 at 6:17 pm

I’m still scared of Y2K, also.

SayItWithWookies October 30, 2009 at 6:20 pm

[re=447646]Extemporanus[/re]: Marie would disagree with you.

Extemporanus October 30, 2009 at 6:28 pm

[re=447648]SayItWithWookies[/re]: There’s an Osmond Family Saying: “Any Mormon in a storm.”

Or is that “Any port in a Mormon”? I can never remember…

Naked Bunny with a Whip October 30, 2009 at 6:35 pm

Ah, Halloween. The one day of the year when wearing fursuits is socially acceptable.

BeWoot October 30, 2009 at 6:42 pm

Second? Sure. Straight? Not so much.

nyhfrog October 30, 2009 at 6:52 pm

Who pitched this? And why didn’t they use more Cocaine in shoot and post?…I mean it was the eighties for Chrissake! It would have only helped.

Aurelio October 30, 2009 at 7:00 pm

Bah, humbug!

chascates October 30, 2009 at 7:02 pm

Too dangerous to go out.
I’ll just lay around the shanty and put a good buzz on.

Sharkey October 30, 2009 at 7:12 pm

If Anything = (Peg Noonancy article on Wonkett) then this video will not be a waste.

SayItWithWookies October 30, 2009 at 7:12 pm

[re=447654]Extemporanus[/re]: You can’t put port in a Mormon — they have rules against that. Caffeine, too.

bago October 30, 2009 at 7:22 pm

Allrighty. Time to make me costume and scare people.

Car Ramrod October 30, 2009 at 7:24 pm

Ah yes. I remember this movie. It was like an early Harry Potter, but with a production budget of $3.82. I watched the shit out of it when I was a kid. Now I’m a gay vampire (I-CT), too.

Doggy Halloween.

They (the dogs) looked pretty happy, on the whole.

user-of-owls October 30, 2009 at 7:37 pm

Someone must have gone to the event dressed as a Virginia Dept. of Corrections officer.

so THATS what a blingee movie would look like…

bago October 30, 2009 at 8:53 pm

Alright. I made the costume. PH34R!

Potater October 30, 2009 at 9:12 pm

This used to be one of my favorite songs of the season when I was a child.

Years later I would go on to suck dick. Total coincidence, I’m sure.

[re=447692]user-of-owls[/re]: No, peeples in Ohio are just naturally fat. I should know, I moved here from skinny NYC.

(Realizing I’m not actually responding to your point, and just whinging, etc.)

Could be worse.
Then, on all All Saint’s Eve, to roam select bistros along the East Coast:
And who indeed are we to question?

Mahousu October 30, 2009 at 10:14 pm

I’ll see your Tim Curry and raise you one Bobby Conn.

It’s not exactly a Halloween video, but it’s not exactly not one, either.

Mad Brahms October 30, 2009 at 10:22 pm

[re=447703]Jim89048[/re]: It’s the war on the… opposite of Christmas! Next thing you know they’ll start calling them “holiday pumpkins”, I swear.

hobospacejunkie October 30, 2009 at 10:32 pm

Oh sweet pig-fucking jeezus I hope my candy hasn’t been cursed!

Jim89048 October 30, 2009 at 10:35 pm

[re=447733]Mad Brahms[/re]: Not to mention all the witches praying over the Halloween candy. Thanks for that one, Unka Pat…

Terry October 30, 2009 at 10:43 pm

To the end of that clip, I was hoping he’d fling open that cape to reveal a corset and stockings.

SayItWithWookies October 30, 2009 at 11:36 pm

[re=447689]user-of-owls[/re]: Hm, that might be a bit of a reach. Like when the Rastafarian who played reggae in obscurity for years suddenly got a hit, with his first check he went to buy a sportscar and said, “Any Porsche in the store, mon.”

Zorg October 31, 2009 at 2:11 am

God, is it possible for a good looking, singing queen to be that boring? I guess it can…

iolanthe October 31, 2009 at 2:18 pm

[re=447733]Mad Brahms[/re]: Uberchristians already call them “harvest pumpkins”, and call the day “Harvest Festival”, apparently not realizing that “Hallowe’en” is *already* the Christianized name for the day.

End the War on Hallowe’en!

El Pinche October 31, 2009 at 4:25 pm

[re=447805]RoscoePColtraine[/re]: ACORNZ. JOIN US. YES WE CAN . YES WE CAN…

fatherfigure October 31, 2009 at 9:46 pm

Unspeakably depressing.

Jim89048 October 31, 2009 at 11:59 pm

Only had one crack baby come begging, so I loaded him up with a shitload of candy and turned out the lights. I hope his parents have fun tying him down tonight.

Egregious November 2, 2009 at 8:17 am

Looks like Tim Curry left a little treat in his pants at 1:15.
