  1. Electronic/Software: Creating a cheap 5.1 surround sound system

    Halloween Props
    Hi, I would like to make a speaker system where voices seem to move around an area. As people walk up the driveway voices travels around them. Back in the bad old days I had an 8 track player and quadraphonic speaker system that played Dark Side of the Moon. I always loved it. Today I'm...

  3. MySQL has gone away

    Site Issues and Feedback
    Got this error briefly a few minutes ago. I am pretty sure from my Drupal days that "MySQL server has gone away" means the MYSQL server restarted. The site was back up within a minute or two. I had seen that error before but that was month or so ago, and this is the first time since then...
  4. Festivus

    Off-Topic Stuff
    Hey party people. Any Seinfeld fans out there that have hosted or attended a Festivus gathering? Or just have any ideas on the matter. :D We've been talking about doing one for years, but it just never panned out. This year I realized that 12/23 is a Saturday, so I told my friends it was a...

    General Halloween
    Looks like Target is starting to list Halloween items on their webpage. Not available to order yet but found the Gemmy Palm Reader Sign (same as the one HD will carry from the pictures with the Blue text and Pink/Red Palm). The price on these seem to be about the same. Some places will have...
  6. What do you do when you miss Halloween?

    General Halloween
    About a month ago hubby and I moved into our new house. The movers got a kick out of all of the Halloween boxes/bins/bags. They also said it was the first time they ever moved an actual coffin. I was so excited to have a new territory to haunt! I even left a note for the buyers of our old house...
  7. Babadook Theme Invitations for 2015 party (someone called the police!!!)

    Party Ideas. Experiences and Recipes
    Here was my save-the-date/invitation I sent out this year. I like to keep things vague and creepy. I've been scaring people like this for years, and like to add some new recipients every year. Well this year a co-worker's wife was so unnerved she had the police come out. I must say I'm proud...

Let the card exchanging begin! Post if you want to exchange with folks, then pm the people who say they...

  13. Static: Scarecrow Corpse Prop

    Halloween Props
    This year, my biggest project was a scarecrow designed to look like a corpse strung up to a cross, with a burlap sack over its head. It took about 3 months to complete, between work and other projects, but I think it's my best prop to date. I also made a short video documenting the process of...

    Would like to get a jump on next year with after Halloween sales, and ideas for my meeting in February.
