Boney Island…Too Damned Cool!

Hey, SoCal weenies. Been to Studio City lately? If so, did you lamely tour the amazing neighborhoods, the LA River Walk, the Brady Bunch house and CBS Studio Center? What the hell for when you could have been at this family’s awesome house? (All right, so technically, it’s Sherman Oaks but meh, once you’re taken the hideous stopped-freeway-drive-through-hell that distinction kind of blurs.)

But aaaaaaaaanyway. Yep. That’s a house, people. It goes by the half-cute moniker of Boney Island, but don’t be fooled. This family sets up every year and allows, with free entry (my favorite price, frankly, any time of year), total strangers to walk the absolutely amazing, one-notch-above-kick-ass animatronics and synched singing of thousands of props.

There are goodies for sale supporting a new charity each year, and the walk through the Holy Shit Treehouse (I don’t know if that’s the actual name, but that’s what I thought when I stared up its winding-staircase double-story height) is $10. But barring those little costs, yes, you can walk this person’s yard and view the staggering setup for a total price of absolute fuck-all.

My kind of place!

Check it out if you can. It’s open nightly 6-10 from Oct. 24-31 at 4602 Morse Ave. Below are a few amateur shots from Mr. Weenie’s phone. They just don’t do the place justice. You’ll want to go a-Googlin’ for more.

(And by the way, check out the Yelp reviews. They’re overwhelmingly positive but hardly do the place justice either. I’m telling you. Just go, Weenies. Fabulous fun for nada in a cute neighborhood…where you’d least expect it…FABULOUS.)

Holy hell. That's a treehouse.

How Different Age Groups Celebrate Halloween

Tee hee.

This list could have been a little slicker, but it still gave me a giggle. Click the linkie and enjoy, weenies!



A Haunting Interview

Thanks to halloweenforum.com for bringing this to my attention.

Come on, Dave…look alive there.  Photo: hotwirefoamfactory.com

Anyway…here it is, folks…an interview from hotwirefoamfactory.com about how a haunter operates.

Heads up (yar har): the page looks very non-pro, but I felt the haunter, Dave Dankanyn, had some interesting things to say.

Dave is also the host of Youtube channel Dead With Dave.

Enjoy, my Weenies.

I Am So Addicted to This Vlog

I HEART the Bloodshed Brothers’ Youtube channel. Heart, heart, heart. (In an evil and very Halloween-ie way, of course. But yeah. It’s love.)

They look so innocent.

Synopsis: twin brothers Zach and Jeromy have inherited a love of Halloween from their mother and today, build a very cool mega haunt in SoCal called Field of Screams.

They’re documenting their progress daily, which is cool (and hilarious) enough (these dudes really should do standup – they’re like a unisexual George and Gracie).

In addition, they put in tidbits about holidays, girlfriends, swearing, driving their tiny dogs nuts, driving their parents nuts, picking through other people’s stuff (eew), and more.

Go Zach and Jeromy! Keep vlogging. And I love your haunt, dudes!  Check them out, Weenies.

Props to HalloweenForum

I LOVE this site. I love the peeps. I love the amazing tutorials. I love Larry, the admin guy dude thingie (not sure exactly what you call that position).

If you’re addicted to haunting or just like to stalk other people’s haunt ideas, check HalloweenForum out.
