Boo! Happy Halloween everyone ... (and so when did ghosts start saying boo?)
Good to know: slutty Halloween costumes, a cultural history. "Halloween was about sex before it was about 'trick or treat,' and the wonder is that we ever saw it any other way."
Personally I've detected a shift; there now seem to be more scary slash weird costumes and less plain sexy witch / caveman dressing up. Everyone has to be something amazing. And the influence of mobile is strong; seems like every third person is an iPhone app :)
So be it; I will say, Facebook is always fun on Halloween.
Tonight we celebrated Halloween ... by going out to see a movie, Gone Girl. A weird movie. The first 2/3 was great; a good setup for a nice whodunit, in which you ping ponged between hating the guy and hating the girl more. And then the last 1/3 blew it away; a weird unbelievable pat ending which made no sense and left you wondering "so what"? The critics liked it but we did not.
