Nancy Drew and The Hardy Boys Precocious Mystery Solvers, Meddlers

October 1st is here and what was once Ghost My Senses* becomes simply The Halloween Edition. All this month we’ll feature a post per day, every day. Each bit shall explore the monstrous, frightening, nostalgic, violent, Halloween-y or just plain creepifying corners of Internet life. At least they will be when we’re done with them.

Let’s begin, yes?:

The Hardy Boys Nancy Drew Mysteries TV Show Opening Theme

As a young groonk, we partook of mystery novels. Encyclopedia Brown was the favorite. EB was also the only series available in the public elementary school library the law forced us to attend. This did not detract from Brown’s awesome in our young eyes.

Then came afternoon mystery TV. The Nancy Drew/Hardy Boys mysteries were one step above your basic Saturday morning Scooby Doo adventures. Three guesses whose ass was plopped on the living room floor in the middle of the day.

They Live… and You Just Ran Out of Bubble Gum

I had so many links collected and unshared for this ghostly month. Those that can, will be re-purposed. On this Halloween night, I sign-off the month with a visual feast. The Halloween movie lists have been running fast and furious as the day wore on. But none of the lists I saw stepped into the realm of the late 80s John Carpenter mind-twistyness of THEY LIVE.

Thanks to Twitterer Sultanica you and I can watch Carpenter’s masterpiece dark comedy/thriller. Marvel at the silent confusion of Roddy Piper guiding you through a story. Cheer as he and Keith David wail on each other for about 20 minutes of the flick. Nod knowingly at the idea of yuppies really being secret space aliens sent down to pacify lowly humans with subliminal messages of CONSUME and OBEY. (They also want sex with our women but that’s a whole ‘nother list of xenophobia fears that we won’t get into right now.)

Behold The “Spider Wreck Chronicles”

Baked pastries are not beyond fail. Cake Wrecks is a site found via a friend on Facebook. It seems they log all the horrifying confection malfunctions and display them for all to see and laugh at. Cake Wrecks were running their own holiday theme. The following images are from their “Spider Wreck Chronicles.”
