Saturday Matinee – Halloween Pumpkin Carving, Frank Zappa & Oingo Boingo

Saturday, 25 October 2014

Nice pumpkin carving tips. I use an orange Sharpie to mark the design, and carve with a serrated fish boning knife. Pre-designed push-pin patterns are for pussies, and using a Dremel is cheating big time. BTW, this is NOT how to do it.

That’s from Frank Zappa’s MTV Halloween Show 1981 at the Palladium NY. “Doreen” is classic, with doo-wop lyrics and chord patterns done in 4/4 time. “Goblin Girl” is typical FZ snark and innuendo.

The best Halloween Band (IMO) is Oingo Boingo, and they got their start as “The Mystic Knights of the Oingo Boingo on The Gong Show. Pure awesome.

Have a great weekend, folks. We’ll be back here tomorrow for more stupid.

All Hallow’s Eve Grumpkins – A Retrospective

Monday, 31 October 2011


Our Grumpkins were known to make dogs bark and little kids cry. A red Sharpie marker, a serrated boning knife and Tom Waits’ “Bone Machine” / Mickey Hart’s “Planet Drum” blasting through the neighborhood made it all worthwhile.

The neighborhood kids are all grown up now…

Grumpkins (4)a

Dang. Lost my boning knife so I had to wing it with a serrated steak knife instead.  Grumpkin on the right lost an eye due to that unfortunate handicap, but Ms. Spaulding came out better than expected.

Two freestyle grumpkins in 75 minutes is a decent crank, though.
