saturday 9: thriller

Saturday 9: Thriller (1983)

1) In this video, Michael Jackson is transformed into a “werecat,” with fangs, claws, yellow eyes and whiskers. What monster or ghoul frightened you the most?
i’m a scaredy cat, so most things frighten me. i think the most are the zombies.

2) Michael sings that evil things that will be lurking “close to midnight.” Where will you be at midnight tonight?
at home, snuggled in bed. 🙂

3) Horror movie icon Vincent Price does the voice over on “Thriller.” What’s your favorite scary movie?
i don’t like scary movies. i watched poltergeist when i was younger and had to cover my eyes at certain parts. i haven’t watched a scary movie since.

4) Mr. Price’s House of Wax, made in 1953, was one of the first 3D movies. What’s the most recent 3D movie you saw?
hmm. was it up? or it might have been journey to the center of the earth or something like that. it’s been a few years.

5) Horror fans might be surprised to know that, despite his sinister image, Mr. Price enjoyed very genteel and relaxing hobbies, like cooking, gardening and painting. What would we be surprised to learn about you?
most people are surprised to know that i used to perform given how much i don’t like being in the spotlight now.

6) A Halloween tradition is the jack-o-lantern. Did you carve a pumpkin this year?
no, but we might this afternoon. actually, i’d like to paint one, rather than carve. i saw some cute tsumpkins, and i want to make an eeyore one!

7) According to Yahoo!, the most popular costume of Halloween 2014 was a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle. Will you be in costume this Halloween? If not, who or what would you most like to dress up as?
i didn’t dress up this year even though my current colleagues are known for dressing up every year. we had an all-day meeting yesterday which is why most didn’t dress up.

8) When you went trick or treating as a kid, did you usually wear a store-bought costume, or was it DIY?
a mixture of both. my mom is a good sewer, but she hates sewing. so sometimes it would be handmade, and sometimes not. the past few years when i’ve had to dress up for work, i made my costumes.

9) When trick-or-treaters show up at your door, what candy will they get?
invisible kind. 😛 i won’t be home tonight.

  1. At least the invisible candy won’t have calories.

    • haha, true!

  2. I’m kind of done with the horror films too. They have gotten way too commercial.

    • true. i’m such a scaredy cat, though, that i can’t even handle the older kind.

  3. I am surprised that you used to perform. Did you sing? Play an instrument?

    • i danced. 🙂 i have done those as well, though, where it was on tv and all, but nothing that was really outstanding.
