Judgement House 2012 (content pages)

Repent -- before it's too late!

JUDGEMENT HOUSE 2012

Evangelical churches might not be big on Halloween, but they have Judgement House -- a walk-through drama that takes attendees on a journey through Heaven and Hell. It's actually pretty darned fascinating.  (10/25/12)

A Quick Halloween Custom!

In your heeeeeeee-eead, in your heee-eeeaa-aad

So as I put the finishing touches on my package for the AEIOU and Sometimes Why Great Pumpkin Gift Exchange, I wanted to briefly highlight my favorite included item: a custom painted screaming zombie toy. The screaming zombies (as well as screaming ghosts, devils, and other creatures) are available at Party City and cost $5 -- and while they're pretty neat without modification (their screams are pretty horrific and their eyes are red LEDs), I wanted to make this thing extra special for my patcher. I think it turned out pretty well! (more...)

Thrift Store Thursday: Video Edition

Hey there! So in keeping with my video posting experiments, here's a special video installment of Thrift Store Thursday. Do let me know what you think!

Also, in keeping with the Killjoy cameo, here are the links to the Full Moon Direct website and the product page for Killjoy. I've also included the link for Full Moon's Killer Toy Sale lot -- 'cause if you're willing to drop $20 for Killjoy, why not get a couple other toys for free as well? The Pimp from Blood Dolls also kinda looks like a clown, so if you dig Killjoy you'll probably enjoy having the Pimp too.

And that's it for this post! Thanks for watching this video installment of Thrift Store Thursday -- if you actually managed to sit through the whole rambling thing. And if you couldn't, thanks for giving it a chance! Hopefully I'll deliver more focused and streamlined commentary as I get more vlogging experience.

Video content preview…

So a while back and periodically since then, I've mentioned the possibility of having some video content on the site... and here's a preview of how that content will work. Nothing really involved, and I still want text and photo content to be the main thrust of the site, but I do think there are times when video content will better serve the items I'm spotlighting (as I note in the above clip). And while I misspoke slightly in the video -- I clearly feel it's possible to convey one's passion for items in writing; otherwise I wouldn't be so passionate about text! -- smileys and onomatopoeia don't quite have the same effect as real life smiles and squeals.

Anyway, your feedback on this preview will be appreciated! Among other things, I'm thinking I really need a better camera for video.

Petco Park @ SDCC 2012 (content pages)

The path to power begins with a step.

PETCO PARK @ SDCC 2012!!!

Since it's never too early to start planning for next year's San Diego Comic-Con, Scary-Crayon takes a look back at the nifty stuff that was on display in the Petco Park parking lot during SDCC 2012. HAIL SHREDDER!  (10/12/12)

Thrift Store Thursday #4

And here's some relief from the Scary-Crayon content drought with Thrift Store Thursday #4! (Dig this -- it's actually Thursday, too!)

Bags of toys for Thrift Store Thursday #4!

Today we've got three bags to look into: one that cost 60 cents, another that cost 80, and one that went for a buck -- at least according to the tags on the bags. I want to say that at least one of them was discounted, but it's been a while since I bought them. I can't remember whether I picked them up on a Sunday or Monday... and if I did, I can't remember whether their tag colors were discounted 50% that day. I'm thinking not. (more...)

A birthday update!

Yeeah, it's my birthday today! I usually like to spend a good chunk of my birthday working on the site -- you wouldn't know it from the posting frequency these days, but I really do enjoy creating content for Scary-Crayon -- but I've got some errands to run and a job to get to so I can't do that right now. (Hopefully I'll have more time tomorrow and Saturday, when the birthday celebration will still be in effect as far as I'm concerned.) Just wanted to check in and let y'all know not to abandon SC, 'cause there's more content on the way! Specifically:

UV cake-flavored vodka!

To celebrate my birthday, I bought cake-flavored vodka! I'm totally going to review it. (more...)
