Michael C. Hall with Brad Carter, Dexter’s first kill of season 5.
Picture taken from this video interview with Brad Carter in which he discusses working with Michael C. Hall and Dexter.
You’ve Got To Hide Your Love Away — The Beatles
a lot of people think this song was about lennon’s gay love for brian epstein; perhaps. anywho, it’s really dylan-eque and fucking awesome, one of my favs, love the video for it too.
I cannot get this song out of my head lately. I listen to it & try to listen to something else, but find myself returning. I love the way John’s voice sounds. It soothes me.

A Toast To Halloween
Here’s to the season of the year
When black cats run and witches ride;
Here’s to the season we hold dear
When wisdom’s mask is laid aside,
And in its stead gay jollity
Rides broomsticks over land and sea.

Here’s an excerpt from the Novelties section:
My Halloween Mask
I’ve made a Halloween mask
With jagged teeth and ugly eyes;
I’ll tell you what I play to do
But sh! It’s to be a surprise.
I’ll sneak behind Betty Jane
And then behind Sally, too;
I know they’ll all be scared to death
When I hold this up and yell, “Boo!”
[Child holds mask in his hand. As he recites last line, he places it over his face.]
We found this absolutely darling book at the library. Isn’t the cover fantastic? It’s a book of original plays, poems & activities for teachers or program directors Halloween pageants. The best part of the book is that there are neat little pencil notes in the margins. I like to imagine an enthusiastic young teacher in the late 40s casting her class in the play Hocus-Pocus Halloween. Adorable!
