Kreativ Bloggers

A VERY happy first day of October, the greatest month of the year!

First off, a big thanks to Wendy the VERY Good Witch, who nominated me for this! Wens and I have been cyber-buddies for a few years now, going back to the early days of MySpace. She's as big of a Halloween freak as I am, creative as all get-out, and a lovely soul on top of it all! Her blog, The Halloween Tree, is one of my favorite haunts on the net.

Okey-day, here's the dealio:

1. Thank the person who gave this to you.
2. Copy the Logo and Place it in your Blog.
3. Link the person who nominated you.
4. Name 7 things about yourself that no one would really know.
5. Nominate 7 "Kreativ Bloggers".
6. Post links to the 7 blogs you nominate.
7. Leave a comment on each of the blogs and let them know you nominated them.

Seven things you don't know about me? Hmmmm....

1. I love superheroes as much as I love monsters, and I'm a rabid comic collector

2. I collect toys, specifically monsters and superheroes (imagine that! Yeah, I'm a TOTAL geek!)

3. When I lived in Austin I got to meet and hang out with Quentin Tarantino, Robert Rodriguez, Richard Linklater, Nickie Katt, Willie Nelson and Bruce Campbell (not at the same time, mind you). All of them were super nice folks who were fairly down to earth.

4. I'm a sometimes actor who has also produced a play! While I prefer the stage, I've also done commercials and voice-over work.

5. When I lived in San Antonio, I moonlighted as a celebrity impersonator. I did various shows, birthday parties, etc. portraying such folks as Prince, Ozzy Osbourne, Mick Jagger, Kid Rock and Freddy Krueger. My strangest gig? Being hired to impersonate Ozzy for a high school prom!

6. For years I was the regular Dr. Frank N. Furter in the Houston cast of Rocky Horror. My final show was Halloween 2000 in Galveston. I hope to one day direct my own theatrical production of the original stage show.

7. I'm actually an ordained minister. I've even officiated two sets of friends' weddings!

Now, for the blogs I nominate (it was hard only including 7!):

The amazing, incomparable Trixie Treats!

Next up are two entries by members of Calabrese, the world's GREATEST HORROR ROCK BAND! Brothers Jimmy Calabrese and Bobby "Vamp"
Calabrese share their thoughts on all things spooky!

For those of you who dig home haunting and amazing Halloween photography, check out Pumpkin
Rot's blog! He's got an amazing page, and an even more stunning website!

The amazing art of Doo Wacka Doodles! Nuff Said!

My last entry is the blog for House of Mysterious Secrets, a great site for ordering horror-themed goodies! Everything from t-shirts to toys is available! My wife pretty much does all of her birthday/Christmas/Father's Day shopping for me from this site

Well, that should just about do it! Everyone get out there and decorate your houses and yards with spooky stuff! The Samhain Season is upon us!!!

Oh well thank you for such kind words, you are making me blush! And as I read your 7 things...I realized that I have 3 other guy friends who share your love of comics, toys and/or Halloween. I must gravitate to your kind...ha ha! Your 7 things are awesome...especially the ordained minister part. That is shocking to me for some reason. Thanks for being such a good sport and accepting your award. And thanks for being one my top Halloween Homies for the last few years. I'm waiting for you guys to come do Halloween Horror Nights with me! Oh...and Happy 1st Day of October! :o)

Yeah, the ordained minister thing gets everyone! It's more of an honoriffic than anything, as I don't have a job preaching in a church, but it is legally recognized! Needless to say, I'm a pretty laid-back minister, with a very liberal outlook on things!

Thank you!! I will have to make some time to get my award posted. Maybe after I figure out what I'm going to post today, this countdown is going to kill me. But it will be fun!
