Hello, hello, hello, and welcome to this spooky addition of selling out. I am one of your host David Schultz, and this big old, freaky look at Pumpkin over here by my side is my pal Nate Gore Zinski made. How the Heck Are you? I'm good. I'm happy. It didn't go with the typical Frankenstein things. I'm so tall and Lanky I often get lurch sure Frankenstein, so I wouldn't do that to you pumpkin heads. Good Jack Skellington's I'm going. I'm I'm tall and Lanky and lean. Yeah, I'm almost ICHABOD CRANEY and my lankiness, but anyway, that's a weird way to describe us and that's a very dating profile. I'm ABOD craney. Yeah, man, when you think ichabod crane, you know that's that's basically what you get with me. But Halloween, baby. Are you excited? I am, and I mean I'm excited also because I'm moving more comfortably now. I don't want to bore our listeners with more talk of my physical woes, but dude, I was seriously incapacitated for a few weeks and we talked all about it and whatever, but I just want to update people that I am feeling a lot better. This still pain, but I have no trouble moving around really, and things, things are on the up and it feels great. It's nice to occasionally appreciate just feeling normal and good. Like sometimes you need a horrible bit of pain to make you appreciate how good it is when it's there. When it's not, they're like the whole bang yourself in the head with a hammer because it feels good when you when you stop. That's kind of what I got going. I get it, but the timing is bad. No, kid, much like how you shouldn't be dating someone before Christmas. HMM, if you were incapacitated, you wouldn't have to get up every three minutes because your dormel was ringing the hand o candy to a bunch of Snot Nos brats. Yeah, man, that would be a nightmare. It I want to be a nightmare, because now you can move. Yeah, you know I'd like, but at least I can do it now. Maybe I'll appreciate being able to move well for the first like hour. After that I'll be like, fack, these kids stop coming, but Fort Light off. Yeah, but to be honest, I'm actually probably. I think we're going out. I usually go out with my girl and her son because he loves to dress up, as any good kids should. Man, he's he'll watch some obscure fucking thing that only him and like a handful of people online know about and it's it's cool, whatever it is, but it's obscure and he'll be like, I want to be that, and it's like a lot of the Times it's not even like something you can find a ready made cost and fork or system. It's just some weird video he likes on Youtube or some video game or some shit. But well, whatever. It keeps it interesting. Can't just stroll down to Walmart and buy the twenty dollar costume for that. Yeah, and you know, whatever it is, the Inky blinky and the Stinky Pooh,...

...you know, or whatever he's watching. It really what it is? The INKY BLINKY STINKY POO? No, but I think I think I found the title for my kids book I'm going to write. and to kids, boocket sounds like a racket. Man. You could. I could write an easy kids book, I swear to God. But anyway, that's a whole other thing. Dude, enough with that. Let's turn off your porch light. Tiss the season to be scary, mate. I want to know what really terrifies or just scares a live and shit out of you. Wow, man. I mean by this point in life, I think I'm over a lot of my fears, but I've got a little one and up and kind of a bigger one. The little one is I still get freaked out by spiders. I can't help it. Sure I don't mind. I don't my snakes, I don't mind Rodin Shit like that. I Love Them. But spiders still freak me out, man, and that's so. That's my little one. It is what it is. You can still freak me out with probably a fake spider in my fucking bed or whatever. But but my bigger one, that's a little more, I don't know, abstract or not even whatever is playing on stage. One thing I started noticing is if I'm playing and something's going wrong, like one of the other members is off key and it just sounding like shit, or or a string snaps or something goes wrong, like I hate being on stage where I'm supposed to be entertaining people and something fucking goes wrong. That's out of my control, but it's fucking I don't know. That's that's a real fear. That seems really minor, like if you pop a string or something like corn unplugged, it's a minor malfunction. That yeah, well, plug getting unpluged, but restringing guitar, I mean yeah, if you're the type of musician has a few instruments ready where if a string snaps, you can just pick up your next one. But enough about my fears. Let me ask you something here. Yeah, you went from spiders, and I get it, the eyeballs, the legs, that the web shooting out their asshole. Yes, that's the freaky fucking Shit. It could elicit a scream, right, but fucking up on stage, I don't imagine that. Like, you know, grabbing your jaw. Oh No, Oh, my fucking string popped. But I don't have huge emotions anymore, as I've mentioned before, I'm I'm inside. Yes, I'm a dead Husk of my former self, where my emotions are dead. So I get it now. That as you need to say, Dude. I think being on stage, though, that a lot of people have fears of either public speaking or being on stage like that's a real fear. That's the thing people have, and mine it's not even the specific things I mentioned. It's just the idea, the feeling of being on stage with everyone looking at you and something fucks up and it's and it's not you hitting the wrong note, it's just some shit is going wrong and everyone's like, all right, that feeling that people are looking at you disappointed and pissed off, and that's Sashole. Yeah, it's just shit place, a shit doing. It is a shitty feeling and I don't like it and it freaks me out. So what my big question, and I think what all our listeners want to know, is what kind of things scare you? What is your great fear in life? Wow, I'm so glad you asked me and, as a matter of fact, I wrote a little ditty about it and it goes something like this, big toe. I know. Wow, man. Yeah, you summed it up there. I don't know, you want to be a little more specific, like where did this fear come from? And specifically, I think I know what you're talking about. You've even mentioned it on another episode or two. But, yeah, why don't you fill us in a little more? You don't know if the origins are that important. Okay, I think the fact of the matter is if someone has a digit on their hand, yeah, that looks like it belongs on their foot. This only applies to the thumb. It's not like sometimes a pinky. Yeah, you don't keep right right. That'd be stubby. Terrible ass. Yeah, my God, that stubby ass fucking big toe thumb. It's just terrible to me because can you imagine someone like preparing food with with with that, when it should be on...

...their foot to begin with? Right or ripen? Wiping something off your face? You have be a lip like you got food on your face, girls like wipe it now, because I'm thinking. I'm thinking of who I've seen the the first time I heard you mentioned this was with the actress Megan Fox, who's, you know, a beautiful woman. She's known as that's her, that's her title. She's a hot movie star Chick. Yeah, sure, yeah, until he's her hands. Well, that's it. I and I didn't even notice, and I feel like a lot of people probably didn't notice, but after you brought it up that she has this freak is big toe thumb, I've looked it up online and that's it's like a thing people notice, like people have mentioned. There's at least one or two links on Google the references to Megan Fox's big coat thumb. Yeah, well, you know she's a scapegoat. Yeah, easy, because you can google her. Yes, not as easy to Google lunk uncle Lou yeah, yeah, whatever tavern, because you won't find them. You know what I mean. But but she just happens to be a celebrity that has okay, so this, this is cross gender, like I always think of it as the hot chick with the thumb, the big toe thumb. That freaks you out. It freaks you out on anybody where you're saying, okay, anybody think of that monkey pog going on that fucking like grip, you know, forget about it and willing. He said. The worst thing ever is if you don't see it at first. Yeah, but then, let's say they're your waiter. Yeah, coming, they put the plate in front of you. That thumb is right on the edge of that porcelain. Or are you running out that door, baby, hell yeah, or that your uncle Leu or whatever is making hamburger patties and slapping them together. There would this thumb says too much for me to handle. I just can't take it. No, I wonder it's so disgusting. Dude, I don't again, I apologize. People are born this way. Yeah, it's not like it's their fault. They weren't like genetically modified or asked like, Oh, could you please let meet my big toe on my hand. No one requests this. Well, that's that. That may not be true. I was just going to say, what if you find out that the person was either born without a thumb or had a severed thumb and an accident and he rended ask to have his big toe put on his thumb? That's that's a little kink in that statement. But I fuck. But I say is go thumbless, motherfucker. You'd rather go thumbless. I would rather not have a thumb than have my big toe put on my hand. No Way, this is no way. I'm it's like if you were born with a tail. Yeah, when they say the tail just kind of creeps back into your spine. Yeah, I think that happened with the big toe, thumb in the womb, like maybe they had a normal thumber. For some reason. They're, you know, terribly crappy DNA instructed there, whatever. What's that fluid in there? Well, and amniotic fluid, whatever controls the life of a baby. Yes, I am theodic fluid, and there you go. Whatever it is, I'm just making shit up. I'm throwing shit out there. I make no sense, but the point is thumb recedes back into the hand. It's just a terrible tear, rrible mutation of plague upon humankind, and if you're listening and you have one, you should probably go have it amputated, go get it cut long or just go. Go get a thumb wrestler, remember those WWF thumb wrestlers from the s yes of crazy? Glue it on your thumb so no one ever sees that fucking monstrosity you have on your hand with a tail. Rather, look out of thumb wrestler and look at that freaking rather look at Roddy Roddy Piper asking me the thumbs up, and it's like, Hey, say your prayers, take your vitamins. Hey, better than that fucking big toe thumb. Happy Halloween, DC's count track you Lah. Don't trick yourself into believing you can't quit smoking or that vaping is too expensive.

Very common with Halloween is alcohol, nudity, craziness, you know, basically stuff that happens three hundred and sixty five anyway, but you know it's more pronounced on this holiday,...

...if you will. And Nate, I have a nine one one call from the grand old state of Tennessee. Now I think we should take a listen to what are you saying? Yeah, let's do it like I didn't know what happens about already the FA I saw the flood. That was part of a nine one one call made by a man in Tennessee was heading to work. He made the call after he saw what appeared to be a dead body lying in his neighbors driveway. I thought it was somebody. I thought somebody land up on the driveway. I thought him what happened and I said will send somebody out to checket. What a fucking sense of urgency that cops have, Huh. They could be a dead body on the scene and you know we'll be out there. We'll be out there to check it. Yeah, we'll stop by at some point. Get the cookies in the milk. This morning, about ten o'clock, I get a pounding on the door. Several deputies went to the House to investigate. I said, thank you, guys, for Karen, but I'm doing just what. That realistic looking body in the driveway turned out to be just a decoration for Halloween. Well, that's pretty surprising. I would have thought that was exclusively an Easter decoration. Yeah, but weirds me out is that, if you look at this man's house, this is the only decoration he has. So so you can understand why people are freaked out like that. It's not like it's one of those houses with all the shit in the art. It's Yeah House with a dead body at the garage. It's nothing for context. There's no Jack Lanterns right, no webbing from the railings, just a fucking body underneath a garage door. He couldn't even write happy Halloween and blood. When the police came today they pulled the boot off to make sure there wasn't a person in there. That is some top notch forensics right. There's we have a body I don't know. Man Take up his shoe. Right there's CSI technology gonna yeah, this is like grab the boot, pull it off. Let's see Tennessee's finest right here, Ladies and gentlemen, and the splattered fake blood, food coloring and hair jel. The family says Halloween is their favorite time of the year and they're getting ready for an upcoming party. This was actually starting out of the joke because when I have my Halloween party I was actually going to dress up under there. After everyone's seen him for so long and then when they come out to get drinks or something, pop up out of the garage door and scare everybody. Snickers, peanut buttercups and heart attacks come get them. Folks, a joke they thought would never go this far, but I thought it looks so real and so fun. So and I hope people don't take offense to him. And to make sure there aren't any more mixups, the sheriff's department posted this on their facebook page. Attention everyone, this is a halloween decoration. Do not call nine hundred and one on reporting a dead body. Instead, congratulate the homeowner on a great display. Did this guy set up the perfect murder? I'm telling a right, because he's got the cops already posting on their fucking twitter or whatever. Don't call nine hundred and one about this guy. We're not going to check up on this guy. And now the guy can kill whoever the fuck he wants and put them in his yard and the cops will be like, yeah, we've got a boy who cried dead body scenario. Yeah, and you're right, though. He get just litter the whole fucking yard with bodies and people drive by and me like, Oh, great job, Jim, that's a wonderful display you have there. My real question about this is in you know, listeners can't see this from the video, but it's obvious this guy is white. Ya, we're not let an African American man, hapend a man, anybody of color, get away with doing this. Right. They'd still charge him with something like freaking out the public or public nuisance or some shit. They'd find a way to, yeah, get a warrant or probable cousin fucking dude likely. Ye, this is fucking white privilege on Halloween, fucks, look out. Yeah, don't call us about crimes at this white dudes house. Exactly. Just fucking ridiculous. You know, this whole call is just kind of, you know, nonsensical and stupid. We're making fun of it and everything good. I mean seriously, Tennessee, and I don't know the town this is in. Yeah, but this just I can't get over the stupidity involved here on every side, every angle. Right. Well, yeah, it doesn't. It doesn't look good for their finest, for Tennessee's finest, the cops down there. They don't the story doesn't make them look good. Is when I'm saying you looking for like a nickname for the cops, like the Tennessee ten men or the there you go, Tennessee, oak trees, I don't even know. But yeah, the fuck. I'm Halloween sucks in Tennessee. Now,...

...being this creepy Halloween season, I have even more of an excuse to indulge in one of my favorite activities, which is watching horror movies. And Mind You, I don't stop the rest of the year, but Halloween is like, for if my girlfriend is like, you know, are you watching another fucking horror movie with my son, it's like it's Halloween, you know. I mean, let's say that pass. Yeah, let's work this kid's mind. So I always he loves horror movies. Man, my guess show he's awesome. But I was thinking, you know, you and I were talking about horror movies and you know, let's make a list, okay, the five horror movies that I don't want to call them the five best or my top five, because they're not in any particular order, right, but these are all. These are five horror movies that really affected me or I really appreciate or whatever. They shaped me and played a big part of my life. So, okay, great, I want to hear these because you are the officianado. I don't know Dick About Dick? Yeah, and I literally have Dick Right next to me. Hey, Richard, how are you? I know you know I mean a seriously. So it's update your guide, your five. Like you said, they're no particular order, but it's right films. Right, I gotta put them on a watch list. Well, all right, I mean you've probably seen some of these, but I'll start with John Carpenter's movie, the thing, back from whatever it was, one thousand nine hundred and eighty two. I believe it was actually a remake of an old horror movie from like the s called the thing from another world. But it's this really dark, creepy, gory movie and it came out the same time or the same year as eat, so it was like you've got the friendly little e team moster alien movie rather and then you've got the thing, and people did not react well to it when it came out. It was like a bomb. The critics slaughter it, said it was like full of needless Gore. It's very gory, very gross, but it's got Kurt Russell, so it's awesome. And it's, yeah, about a shape shifting, weird alien that disguises itself as people. It's really fucking gory and worth checking I get a strong stomach. I would have to argue with you about et being really friendly, though. Okay, like we took him that way and I don't get it, because he looks like eighty six year old man who got abandoned in a bathtub eighteen. You know what I mean? There's is very separates. Yes, it's very little that separates et and the the Sullen, dried up alien from cuckoo. It's all wrinkles and nipples. That's it. Like me. Yes, I guess eat. He's a little creepy to. So put him on the list. Yeah, all right, but I would say another movie that really I would this maybe the first harmy. The next movie on my list is probably the first horror movie that showed me that I really love horror movies, and this was I was at a friend's birthday party when we were all about eight years old. I'm at his house and his mother, not really paying attention to what she was renting for us kids, just left us alone in the living room with a copy of return of the living dead, which was an s that punk rock, sort of pseudo comedy, gory horror movie and this movie. As a kid, the comedy went right over my head. It was just scary as hell to me. But watching it as an dull I see there's a lot more humor in it and it's a really good movie and it's there's for kid watching it. There was like full frontal nudity. Is there was, yes, zombies eating people. It's where the term brains comes from. It's where the whole zombies eat brains thing comes from, because you watch most Zombie movies, they just eat people. That's and but when you watch something that parodies zombies, you'll hear the Zombie sue, brains, brilliants, and that's all from this movie. It was originally supposed to be Kiche K came and broke into people's houses looking for Keiche della. He's wise. Fine, yeah, oh my goodness. So, yeah, so return to living dead kind of started my whole love for and you say it was a a foe comedy. Yeah, I mean it fomity. Can we call it a comity shift? It's a Hamedy because it's horror combody. Yeah, yeah, so that's a great movie. Next on my list is a movie that kind of turned the tables.

It made the monsters into the good guys and the people were kind of scared of what they didn't understand, and we're fighting that. The movie is called night breed. It's a Clive Barker story that was turned into a movie and the Awesome Horror Director David Cronenberg, who did not direct this movie, actually acts in it. He plays this homicidal murderer character. But anyway, it's a really good movie. Like I said, the it's about the main character basically becomes this monster and finds Sol is amongst, like a community of other monsters who all live underneath this cemetery. It's like they have a whole world under the cemetery with with rope bridges like like the e walks had on end or and Shit. But it's all underground, you know, and it's really cool visually. It's very cool and, like I said, it opened my eyes to seeing the monsters as not necessarily being bad and it's kind of got an interesting message in that way. You know, doctor, just not to hate what you don't understand. So so it's a great movie. Yeah, I recommend that one too. That's number three on my list. Number four is I'm all these seem to be very gory. I'm looking at this list in you like it. Yeah, Hey, but hey, number four. At its time, and I don't know if this still holds true, but it was touted as cinematically the goriest movie ever made. Now, the movie which you have seen is called dead alive. It's sort of it's a Zombie movie, I guess, but it's more than that. It's this strange thing where a guy, he's grandmother, or mother, whatever it is, this old woman, she gets bit by some weird rat at a zoo and the rat bite infects her and she becomes this horrible undead thing that's oozing puss and eating people, and it's all made in New Zealand. The director was Mr Peter Jackson, who went on to do the whole Lord of the Rings. Never heard of He's ring about? Well, that's the thing. Peter Jackson went yeah, he became this this award winning director and doing all this beautiful work, but he came from low budget horror. You've seen the movie bad taste that you referenced like a an episode or two ago with I'm a Derek and Derek's don't run, and that's from this low budget horror movie called bad taste. But Anyway, the one that I'm interested is dead alive, which in some countries was released under the title brain dead. So it's weird. Horror Movies sometimes have different names if they're released in different countries. So it's confusing. But I do too. Yeah, I got like ten different passports. You know you're on the lamb. You gonna do what you gotta do. Yeah, but evil, dead, evil, dead. Dead Alive has a character who's a priest who somehow is also a Kung Fu master and is kicking the shit out of zombies but in his priest garb with the collar and the wagon. It's entertaining and he says I kick ass for the Lord in one part. So it's it's pretty awesome. So yeah, that's my number four pick. If, again, if you're into really gory, this one is disgusting. It's got pus dripping into custard, it's got intestines and guts coming alive and attacking people and it's got a guy picking up lawn mower and just using it, like running at people with it up in the air and just smashing zombies apart with the bottom of a lawnmower that he's strapped to himself. Getting asked for. It's great, really, it's fucking disgusting. And the last one. It's funny. I as I was just talking about dead alive, I accidentally said the word evil dead and now I'm bummed out that I forgot. I mean I would say evil dead to is probably it belongs on this list and I've probably talked about it before, and that's an amazing movie. But and that's that's truthfully the movie that belongs in the number five slot. But just because I made this list already and I want to just complete it. I want to say a much cheesier movie too many people, but to me it was special and it almost doesn't even fit in the horror...

...genre. But when I was a kid, the movie the lost boys made me think I wanted to become a vampire and I thought key for Sutherland in the lost boys was the coolest motherfucker in the world. And looking back on it now, it's very s and it's a lot cheesier when you're older, but something about the lost boys wrote it still is very special to me. It was probably the first movie that you could watch with me and I would annoy the shit out of you because I would literally say every line as they were saying in the movie. I could recite the whole movie front to back. But it's a vampire movie. It's got the two coreys, Corey Feldman and Corey Han. Yeah, it's got key for Sutherland with an awesome mullet and dangly yeah, it's got dangly earrings and some some great s fashion, but it's it's fucking special, man. But truthfully, evil dead to probably belongs at that slot. But I want to you know they're going to duke it out I just mentioned a line from the lost boys. You didn't hear me and I was trying to win kudos points. When you will Kuda, let me Kudos. You up what happened, but you say to it. Haggats, Michael, reading maggots. Howd an a taste? You're eating maggots. Hardly taste and your misstic if you waxing poetic or nostalgic, or was waxing your legs. I don't know about the movie. I said it, you didn't hear me. I don't need to be here, but listen. Let's readap real quick, because you had a list of five. It's now will list six. Yeah, so you want to sit down, get fucking grossed out, just totally get so into the Halloween spirit. Give me those six movies right now. Okay, the thing return of the living dead, night breed dead alive, and the lost boys or evil dead too. We're both. Yeah, we're both Welch, both both fucking awesome. Until you already cheated, you can just put on my list of five. You know, a fun without some protection, and became a list of six. Here you go, man. I'm not really going to recommend any movie to anybody. But I will say this. I prefer my horror with a dash of comedy, like we talked about earlier. A little fomity or a harmony. Yeah, whatever the fuck you want to call it. So I'll say you want to watch a funny movie, Go out in and see if you can find Ed and his dead mother as a great one. Wasn't good one? Right, the Boushemi, and that was Zombie Esque, if you will, a little bit of a twist. And Yeah, I think it's good for laughs and yeah, will enjoy it. And a lot of people, and I mentioned it, they go what well fucking movie is that? I'm like, yes, it's a littld I remember it from back in the s when I was a whipper snapper. Yeah, isn't that in black and white? No, no, that was in color. Okay, what am I thinking of? I remember it was a great movie. And Yeah, because even, I believe, Ned baby was in it too. And yes, yeah, that's my Gore. See, I'm gory to and you are the Gore, because you are Nate Gore Clu Ski. That's you. See that it all fucking ties together a nice little bow around your neck before it t kappa takes your head for Halloween. Curses. What is a curse? Well, a curse also known as an anathema, which happened to be the name of about six thousand metal bands. Maw yahds. Yeah, we knew been name and Athem. We did. I use my uncle's band, but the thing was again, every other fuck you can find any band flyer in a gutter and that was like one of the acts on it right. But a curse is any express wish that some form of adversity or misfortune would be fall or attached to one or more person's, a place or an object. In particular, lar curse may refer to a wish or pronouncement made affected by a supernatural or spiritual power, hmm, such as a God, Spirit Natural Force, spell by magic or witchcraft. In a ladder sense, a curse can also be referred to as a hex or a jink's and many belief systems the curse can be dispelled requiring elaborate rituals or prayers. That is your lesson for the day on curses, which leads me to ask you, Nathan. MMM, if you could curse anybody on the earth, who would you in fact curse? And what would you curse them with? Jess, who would I curse some with? I mean who, who would I curse them with? Know,...

...who would I curse? Is the weird question. I'm I'm tempted to go the easy route and say I would curse our president, Donald Trump. That's too easy. Yeah, that's what I'm saying. It's so easy, man. And so what would who would I curse? I know what persons. Yeah, let's get personal on air and expose someone. You can't stand everybody out there in podcast land on the Internet. Man, I don't have a lot of enemies, dude. I mean, I guess I'd. I could, I could pick an old teacher from school that I couldn't stand, but that's like getting petty, and because that was fucking twenty five years ago and I don't have a lot of enemies. Dave, I don't know. How about okay, how about this to the asshole that was working at starbucks the other day and could not get my order right and then acted like an asshole when I brought it up and needed him to change it and had to return what I got because he didn't make what I wanted so perfect. So that fucker gets my curse of every time he goes to like poor sugar or salt into something, the cat malfunctions and all the sugar assault goes into his shit. So wow, yeah, man, whatever. He came out of a job. Yeah, well, I'm talking tired. Well, I didn't even think of the job ramifications. I was thinking of just his personal ruining a lot of meals or coffees for himself. But you're right, being a Barista, he would. Yeah, he would suffer, although you put your own sugar and shit, I guess, in most of the stuff. So I don't know. Whatever it would it would ruin a lot of his personal dishes, though, so fuck that dude. Curse off. What would be the ritual in that loose but I just gave you? would be the thing, like any fucking run through the streets naked screaming yeah, weird or something. or He have to sacrifice a goat it? Um, yeah, I think you just have to shave his head and then put a bunch of the coffee stirs from starbucks up His ass light them on fire, because their wood. They use the wood ones and ECO friendly. Yeah, but not say me, rainus. It's definitely be naked. And Yeah, I think he'd have to. He'd have to walk down a busy street with the his anus flaming and his head shaved and completely naked. I love how your first your curse, initially wasn't job oriented, until I brought it up to you. You Oh, yeah, it's like pouring sugar and stuff in the cat falling off. This really sucks. Yeah, that's why you use it as a curse, and that makes a lot of sense. But then after that, you like you. You made it so he would have to go into work, grab a bunch of these stirs, Sham them into his rectum, I emphasize, and yeah, his wrecked them. Light them on fire. That's right, move this is hecks. That's right, holy cow. Yeah, Dude, fuck it, we're going all the way with this starbucks thing. Man. Oh, social media, all that stuff. That's amazing technology we have in the world. We can talk to perfect strangers get their opinions on things, and vice versa. We tend to be fairly prominent on twitter, and so I asked the twitter populace, in your opinion, who is the most iconic horror movie character, contemporary or classic? You just comment below. To which we get some some nice responses here. First one from at Professor Frenzy, who's a great podcaster in his own right. Thank you for listening to this show. He is the Great Jerry Green. He picked Bella Lugosi, Dracula. HMM, that's a classic right. That's what we asked for. At Greg Litchfield shows, the Wolfman. Thank you again for the response. At Ron Bar three hundred and sixteen, put Freddy Krueger, which is a very popular choice. We got a lot of the Freddy so I don't know what it is about having your face look like a melted cheese pizza. It's but clauseman. I'm thinking it's it's very, very hip. I might need to get one of those myself at bad drunks. Another popular one was Jason Voorie's HMM, so, get your hockey mass ready. That said, to me, that's at the most generic, most boring Halloween costume of all time, though. MMM, like if a kid came by door and he had just a fucking like glow in the dark hockey mass from the dollar store. HMM, I kick him the fuck out. Get Out of it at retail podcast. The final one I have here. Another popular choice that we got quite a few of was Michael Myers from hey. Why not? Is Halloween, m I want to thank all that replied and to those that I...

Despite my disdain for the end of summer each year in my less than enthusiastic reception of autumn, I do hold a special place in my heart for that most fun of all holidays, Halloween. Maybe it's the Kiddeney or some rem in of my gothy teenage years, but it's one of the few situations where I still feel that sense of magic in the world seems a little more exciting than usual. Last year, at this time, I centered the Halloween episodes nates notes around the Goth Genre in general. I mentioned some acts that had a hand in creating the goths sound and some that continue to carry the Goth Torch to this day. There are tons of variations on what could be considered goth in a musical sense, from rock and metal bands like typo negative to electronic sample heavy bands ranging from skinny puppy to conby Christ, who are more or less a dark, rave dance band. A lot of it has become unwittingly self parody and truthfully, kind of easy to make fun of. One artist I mentioned briefly last year was Australian singer Songwriter Nick Cave. This episode I feel like delving deeper into the guy because in a genre so watered down by cookie cutter hot topic knockoff bands, Nick gave has not only remained super prolific and steadily inspired to write and perform, but his work has always seemed to have more depth and authenticity to it then a lot of the bands who've popped up in the forty years since he started doing his thing. Cave began in a sort of postpunk project that was called the boys next door, but before long things shifted and it became...

...the more confrontational and avant garde band the birthday party. For a time in the early s, the birthday party made a lot of noise and inspired a lot of artists that went on to more success than they Henry Rollins, for one, has written and spoken of his respect for their aggressive sound and they're dangerous image. He freely admits to being a big Fan. It was punk rock, but more chaotic and unpredictable, and at the center of it all was frontman Nick Cave, with his Pale, almost skeletal frame and shock of wild jet black hair, throwing himself around the stage and barking out lyrics like a man possessed. At the time, there really wasn't anything like it. All things unfortunately come to an end and, as well as having some personal issues with other band members, cave was eager to flex some new artistic muscles. On the final birthday party album, he had started toying with a different lyrical approach. Instead of the sort of stream of consciousness lyrics found on earlier songs, he decided to work in more of a narrative on some of the material, write a song centered around a fictional character, storytelling as songwriting. When he branched out on his own, taking a member or two of the birthday party with him to help out, he shifted further into this style of writing stories into the songs. Thus Nick Cave and the bad seeds was born, a perfect example of what I'm talking about. Can Be found on the song the mercy seat, which was one of his first songs with the bad seeds and still remains a crowd favorite. Johnny cash did a cover of the mercy seat years later and it sounds like something he would have written himself. The term the mercy seat refers to the Electric Chair and the song is Sung from the point of view of a man sitting on death row, noticing his perspective on things changing as his time draws to an end. The refrain is I'm not afraid to die, but it almost becomes less convincing the more he says it. It's a haunting track and set. It's the tone for what would follow on subsequent albums, and there have been a lot of subsequent albums. stylistically, the bad seeds are miles apart from the chaotic yelping of the birthday party. As well as experimenting with lyrical approaches, there's been a lot of musical experimentation. To date. This project has released seventeen albums and there are blues numbers, folk music, Piano Ballads and torch songs and some stuff that borders on country, but there's also more artsy and confrontational material just not really in any kind of punk rock sort of way. He seems to be inspired by Leonard Cohen and Tom Waits on a lot of tracks. The most recent few albums have leaned into electronic and experimental ambient territory. But through it all, the connective thread that runs through all of his work is a tendency toward dark topics. The songs are often about creepy or morbid subjects. One record is called murder ballads and each song tells a poetic story involving surprise murder. Over the course of his long career, cave has created this dark, mysterious persona. Between his lyrics, his album art were or can, even the way he gives interviews and the way he answers questions. It's all to perpetuate this image of a black clad, almost vampiric character. Over his roughly forty years in the game he has sculpted this image, even going so far as to take part in a foe documentary in two thousand and fourteen that depicted a fictional twenty four hours in his life, making him look less like a guy in his late s working on the grind of writing a new album and more like some musical magician harnessing his muse while living this intriguingly dark lifestyle. The man's work isn't all fictional and calculated, of course. The most recent few albums have been experiments in mournful, droning, almost meditative ambience. His...

...lyrics particularly introspective after years of writing about fictional characters. It turns out that during the writing process of the first of these newer, different albums, cave was dealing with some real personal tragedy, so he had plenty to write about. His fifteen year old son had taken acid for the first time with some friends and decided to go on a walk about of sorts, but ended up falling from a cliff and dying a sad ending to such a short life. A few years later, in a couple more records on nick cave continues to write, record and tour to the pleasure of his many fans. The man is timeless and his music continues to entertain and inspire. He's survived personal tragedy, changing cultural zeitgeists and even managed to crawl out of his own heroin addiction years ago, which is a whole other story. I won't go into here, but suffice it to say Nick Cave is a legendary, almost mythical creature stalking around his own dark corners of the musical landscape. Do yourself a favor and check out some of his material this Halloween, or really any time. There's an almost intimidating catalog of music to pick through, but I often suggest the song that I picked for this episode's recommended listening. When someone asks where to start, it's a little devilish tune called red right hand. Being USHAM game, soulberder, won't be single thing that you do. These dogs us a ghost using food. There sprees names through this supreme but d n school is a read rat hand. So yeah, Dude, Nick Cave is this weird, dark, living vampire, but he's a troubadour and he's yeah, he's just created this great last name. So I don't know, is that his real last yeahs last name even like Min Chevatz or something. I'm sure it's fake, to be honest. I actually am not one hundred percent sure, but it would be really cool if it were his, his real name. I think I'm literally looking it up as I'm talking to you. Okay, and thank you. Thank you guym yeah, it's it's just saying Nick Cave was born in Australia in one thousand nine hundred and fifty seven. It doesn't say yeah, apparently, yeah, Nicholas Edward Cave, that's just drailing. They're all made up there as an island of prisoners, the names came from where you lived. Yeah, not what you did for a living, because everybody was a thief. So it could be John Thief, bob thief. Had to be like well, I'm Nick Cave and I'm a Jimmy under the Rock and I'm by. He was in the tree named named after where they hid from the cops. Yeah, that's what Dave seven eleven. That's yeah, every wrong because you be robbing a seven eleven. Nate Bulkhead, kid nate bulkhead or basement or some shit. I was gonna saying. Okay, Geez, Louise, that's that's actually kind of impressive. Like cave, I like it. WELCOME BE NEAT Bulgan. Thing about crane to bulkhead. There you go, what a transition from beginning to end of show. Now something that I like is nate's notes. I love it, can't get enough of it. And each and every episode you give us some recommended listening, some homework to do, if you will, good little bache, a little bit right, and you post it on the facebook page. Sure. So what do you got for us this time out? All right, I am thinking I'm gonna recommend a song by a band that in the first few episodes of our show. I mentioned them almost, I probably every episode for a while, but it's been a long time burnacy, I think. Yeah, I think we're due for a little recommended listening of no effects. And the song is called it ain't lonely at the bottom. And so, yeah, I think that would be a good one too, to leave you people with on this holiday. And Yeah, enjoy it. We call it a holiday. Halloween isn't really a holiday that the mail is still delivered, banks are still open, there's school. So I mean really, you know, it's more just an excuse for people to get drunk and girls to dress slutty,...

...and I've got no problem with that. Maybe we should good in fact make it a holiday. What do you think I mean? To me, it is all day. It's always been holiday. You know, for kids it's a fucking holiday. They may not get the day off. But if you ask any kid, Halloween is a holiday. So, yeah, we should get a day off, though, if that's what you're getting a yeah, let's do it. Pay Damn it. Not just a day off, get it off fucking with like paycheck involved. You know what I mean. But yeah, okay, this is a lot of candy I gotta Buy at the dollar store. That's a lot of cheap fucking smarty's and generic fucking orange slices I gotta buy, which, to be honest, I can't believe I just said that, because that's one of the worst things of any Halloween is when someone puts like a loose candy, yeah, man, and all kinds of shit gets stuck to it like lint, and then it's get sugar on it and the sugar is flaking off. So, yeah, if someone gives you an orange like candy, aren't like, yeah, not a real artist slice, because right, that's such a get weirder. Yeah, yeah, as a soccer mom, right there, don't get into her, man, don't do it. But yeah, you know that that's the person deserves to be Egged toilet papered or, you know, the cap up in Nana's. They given that fucking fruit and shit, that's it sucks. All that's big toe, thumb ass, because I don't eat fruit. Yeah, I couldn't imagine such a thing that banana would end up in that motherfucker's tailpipe two seconds flush. Thanks for their fruit. Now fucking choke on your fumes, asshole. You know. But even though it's not an official holiday, you know we're griping about it. Whatever, I want to wish everybody out there happy trick or treating, happy drinking, happy accidentally making a spawn on Halloween, because of course I'm sure that's gonna I thought she was hot. She's dressed up like a fucking nurse. I woke up. I was so wrong and it was my cousin. Oh Shit, fucking hellowe. But anyway, everybody else and that didn't happen to me. Just, Oh, just quickly, I have to just clarify. I just want to see. Yeah, but I do want to see. I'd haven't mentioned my dad's birthday is Halloween. So I just want to say Happy Birthday to my dad. And my brother's birthday is two days before Halloween and my girl's son is the day after all, but my dad's is right on Halloween.
