On the 18th Day of Halloween... I will serve up some cuteness, fine. But we were all supposed to instantly, magically grow up at 18, were we not? Art is "Princess of Bones" by Jasmine Becket-Griffith. The sonic edge is provided by Kittie, the queens of metal, covering Pink Floyd... fantastically. This ride on the Ghost Train only gets darker from here, kids. Enjoy the...

Here is the first of several entries that I will only post here... because I don't think any other social media site will appreciate it. Art is photography (!) by Emma McEvoy... the music is by Blue October. Follow me to climb aboard the Ghost Train, and get daily Halloween art and music... the sacred month is half over, kitties and cats. Gets to knows...

I love this song! And gorgeous photo

Holy 17th of Samhain! Hold onto your halos. All I will say about this piece by @ mel.artworks is that I do get it... some stuff is irrevocably lodged in my brain, too, and it busts out when I don't let it. The song is my very favorite Disturbed track... and whenever I hear it, just like certain verses of eloquent dogma, I find...

Tell your friends, if you like.  Much more Ghost Train to come...

For the Sweet 16th of Halloween, Kai Carpenter gives us Medusa as a young Goth ("Mortal Sister"). The score is a deceptively catchy, yet dauntingly catastrophic, electrosoul gem by Robert DeLong. We are all, in this era of humanity, perhaps on a steady, systematic decline... but attitude counts for an awful lot. ;-}> Learn to enjoy the Long Way Down. It helps, trust me...

Already the midpoint of the hallowed month approaches, and I have not even fixed the straps on my hockey mask yet. ;-} We'll take it old school today: a classically grim image by James Nathaniel ("Deathly Abduction") paired with a song I am officially nominating as a rightful Samhain Hymn: "Them Bones" by the real Alice in Chains. The Ghost Train rumbles on into the...

So now I am caught up on the October days I missed. Here is some wow photography featuring Katya and Stepan the Bear. The song is by Henry Hall, and is a true unheralded gem of vintage spookiness.

Loved that song as a kid.

Me too, @wizard0 .  And as far as the pic, there are a whole series of these out there... they are not, as far as I can tell, Photoshopped.  Amazing, and scary.  That is one brave little girl


Happy 14th Day of Halloween! Perfect weekend for binge watching horror movies (if you can escape the dreaded honey-do list). So your Samhain Sunday Brunch guests this week are Ripley, Jones and Mama by Jen Bartel. Musically, I could not decide whether to go with a straight-up horror tune, or something more complex. I opted for the latter. The song is Panic Switch. Enjoy, my...
