Best and Worst Halloween Candy

Kat’s 6-picks-Best and Worst Halloween Candy. Let’s get right to it-

Top 6 Worst Halloween Candy

3. Floss/toothpaste. This is what my Mom used to give out when we were little.

2. Raisins. really? Only good on yogurt or on a salad.

1. Tooth Brush. Unless it’s chocolate covered!

Top 6- Best Halloween Candy

6. Candy Corn. Awesome sugar high!

5. Skittles. Gets yer hands nice and colorful!

4. Twizzlers. Low in fat people!

3. Tootsie Rolls. Let’s see how many you can put in yer mouth at once!

2. Snickers. Delighful!

1. Anything Reeses! Peices and peanut butter cups! The Best!

Ghost of Jim Morrison?

Check it out, is it real? The picture was taken in 1997 at Jim Morrison’s grave site in Paris by Rock Historian Brett Meisner. (you can see half of his body in the picture as well, Jim is to the right) and has just surfaced now. The photo experts and the ghost experts have unequivocally denied any tampering or airbrushing has been done to this photo. In other words, it is real! Look close and you will see Jim in his famous spread-arm pose. You can check out this ghost photo and many others in the new book- ‘Ghosts Caught on Film2 : Photographs of the Unexplained’ Available now and just in time for Halloween.

So YOU think YOU’RE a KISS fan?!?!?!?

Really?  YOU think YOU’RE a KISS fan?  For some reason I don’t think you can touch the passion that KISS (something tells me that’s not his real name) – from The Green Room on Decatur – has for the band.  KISS was one of my favorite bands growing up.  Probably MY favorite band.  But, never in my wildest dreams would I have the cojones to celebrate my favorite band like KISS (probably not his real name…) has.  Check it out…

See what I’m sayin’? I knew a guy from Longview, Texas, that had a couple of KISS tattoos, but nothing like this. My friend Clint – HUGE KISS fan to this day. Owns things KISS doesn’t even know they put their name on. But, he has zero KISS tattoos. Until someone steps up and proves otherwise…I submit that KISS (maybe it is his real name…) IS THE ULTIMATE KISS FAN!!!! Look for him at the show (KISS at the Voodoo Music Experience) Halloween night…or at The Green Room.

BTW, new government rulings say that anytime a blogger appears to be promoting a person or establishment, they have to disclose any personal monetary gains derived from said promotion. That being said, if anyone from the FTC is reading this, I didn’t get a friggin’ dime for sharing KISS’s passion for a band he loves with my Bayou friends. So suck it!!!

Vampires, VoodooFest, Kisstober and KISS!

It is officially KISSTOBER on the Bayou! With Kiss headlining VoodFest Saturday Kisstober 31st-WORSHIP THE MUSIC! Keep it here all month to win tks and passes in the Miller VIP Tent. As we get ready for this bewitching season, now is a good time to introduce you to one of the greatest Vampire authors ever! Sure, we still have the masters-Anne Rice, Bram Stoker. And the recent chicks-Charlaine Harris and Stephenie Meyer. But you GOTTA check out J.R. Ward and the Black Dagger Brotherhood series. Vampire King Wrath and his band of Vampire brothers take on the baddies. It is vital to your love of Vampire authors and novels that you check her books out! I like them because they don’t pay too much attention to humans. The Vampires are the shyte! Good Vampire love, sex, betrayal, gore. This may be good and bad, Hollywood has come a callin and may turn her books into a movie. I hope they don’t eff it up. Vampire believers check out her books! I believe Vampires are among us. And most of them are good creatures. Happy haunting this month!
