Three Hour Halloween Special 2011!

(Sorry this is late, we swore we posted this right after airing it, but I'm an idiot and forgot to click "post")

Here it is: the Halloween special that our entire radio year pinnacles toward. We had a surprising lack of guests on the show, with the exception of perennial ghoul Grim Gravesly, who shambled in and chided myself and the Boom Operator for our awful puns (my personal favorite was Die-agra). But, for the most part we focused our 3-hour special on the music, stopping only to discuss some horror movie tropes, like how arbitrary and random it is to kill Boogeymen like Michael Myers, Jason Voorhees, and Freddy Krueger when their survival is inevitable. We also discussed horror genre trends, how we moved from psychological, heterodoxy-driven films to slashers, and the newer trend of voyeuristic "torture-porn". Halloween Tavern Trivia falls this Wednesday, and you don't want to miss that. Trust me.
