Zombo's Closet of Horror has declared Halloween in August with this challenge/demand/threat:
Smash those pumpkins (your blogs), dig deep into those squishy, slimy innards (your posts). Paint your face with them and war-whoop your scariest scream of terror to raise the dead (post your links, like donning your Ben Cooper Land of the Lost costume to jump into that awfully big pile of withered leaves. Not that I ever did that, of course, just saying.)
Post your links about Halloween, or send them to me to post, or hold your own Halloween in August posting-seance with friends, or do a bloggy Halloween Carnival with monsters. Once a week, thrice a day, two by midnight? Whatever suits your fancy.
Just do it! the power of Vampira and her pumpkins compel you!
I for one am pretty damn psyched. Good on ya, Zombo.
