Goodness I hope not, that was one of the more hyped-up outfits of the year, and thankfully I didn’t see ANY Palin’s running around Vegas.
Did someone say Vegas? I heard Vegas and Halloween within the same paragraph-ish.
Alas, it’s true. I, as well as fellow blogtastic Nintendo Power Glover Matt were there (separately, although we did cross paths at Dan Marino’s Wing Hut at the Hooters around 2am) celebrating the holiday with excitement, crazy costumes, and drinks. Lots and lots of drinks. So instead of talking about relevant and important issues, like the recent election, the UK’s slash in interest rates by 3%, or that crazy rabid fox that attached itself to a runner in Arizona this past week, I’ll be giving my thoughts on Halloween, Vegas, and on whatever randomness I feel like.
Best Halloween Costumes I Saw:
Rubik’s Cube: Now, I’m all about constructing your own costume and whatnot, but I’m pretty anti costumes that get in my way when walking around, hence my dislike of ever wearing wings. But the Rubik’s Cube…SHEER GENIUS. I mean, it was perfect. The guy seemed relatively agile in it (clearly he had been practicing walking around in costume at his local mall), it was well built (IT MOVED!), and the guy was never without a drink in his hand. Bravo!
Green Man: OMFG GREEN MAN?! Seriously, I had to take a picture with him I was so excited. “Always Sunny In Philadelphia” is one of my favorite shows, and this ode to Charlie’s “Green Man” was just…wow. Not sure what Green Man is? Seriously, click HERE, be amazed.
OLD GREGG: Words do me no justice. Just WATCH
What I Wish I Had Seen: 3 hole-punch Jim from “The Office”. I don’t know why hat cracks me up, it just does.
Vegas Clubs: The Good, The Bad, The Ugly
Rain (The Good): Paul Oakenfold spins there. To make it better, he brought DAVID GUETTA up on stage with him. Now, I’m by NO MEANS a club rat, but even I know who he is. Does it get any better than this? Hell no. Ok, maybe the falling possibly toxic foam was a little…umm…scary, but it was Halloween, right? I should prolly get checked out by a doctor, some of that definitely fell into my drinks.
Tabu (The Bad): Now, Tabu isn’t THAT bad, I mean, it’s kinda trasher as far as Vegas clubs go. It’s like the Jersey of nightclubs; you know it’s there, you don’t really want to go, but sometimes you get bullied into it. So naturally, upon entering the bar, we did Jager Bombs. I mean, come on, how can you not?
Studio 54 (The Ugly): On Halloween night, we waited in line. Mind you, this is a mediocre club to begin with, but NOT worth waiting in line for that long. So, we split to find bigger, better things, like seeing fat chicks in rainbow-brite costumes and blackjack tables. So take THAT 54. Pffffffffff.
Gratuitous Shout Out To Best Mash Artist Alive:
Girl Talk. BOUNCE THAT.
Halloween Traditions I Wish Would Die:
Giving out toothbrushes to trick-or-treaters. This was the worst thing that could happen to you on Halloween, next to being Silly-Stringed by the older, popular kids or having to be chaperoned by your mother at the ripe old age of 13. Who the hell is gonna even USE your crappy Crest toothbrush anyways Mr. Dentist? I’ve got a pretty sick Oral-B waiting for me at home thankyouverymuch. Now where’s my damn Kit-Kat bar?
People who decorate their front lawns with fake spider webs. Unless you’re a professional set designer or work as a window display bitch at the Macy’s, chances are you are going to DO IT WRONG. When was the last time you ever saw a spider web that was clumpy and looked like someone’s cat destroyed a throw pillow. Never you say? Shocking.
Scary Movie Marathons: Hey, TV networks! Halloween stopped being scary over the age of 6 a lonnnnng time ago. I do not care to watch “Pet Cemetery II” on repeat tonight, nor do I want to see “Saw 32” at the local Cineplex. NEXT.
Totally Necessary Information For You, The Reader:
In case you haven’t heard, the GSBN will be having a totally bitchin’ garage sale/drinking party on Saturday, November 15th in the Mission on 19th St. (message the network for details). Sale starts at 9am, bring your junk, bring your PBR, and most importantly, bring your smiles, because that’s what really sells random crap.
That’s all from me folks, be sure to tune in next week when I’ll be discussing the pitfalls of finding roommates on Craigslist.org, and how their recent crackdown on their prostitution ads has affected it. Good day.Stumble It!
