Why are you wearing that for Halloween?

Mark, Atlanta:
I'm the Crimson Ghost. I loved the movie and it's my favorite band's [Misfits] logo. I loved all those old black-and-white horror movies with Bela Lugosi and Boris Karloff. Halloween was like my Christmas. I always loved to throw spiders at my Mom and other people who were really scared of them. Every year of my life I have dressed up for Halloween.
Gouda, Atlanta:
My Mom made me wear this. She thinks I'm a little fairy princess. But I would rather be a blood-sucking evil bat. I've been in witches hats, feathers, boas. People love it. They treat me like a celebrity. I know it's Halloween because my Mom goes crazy with treats and toys for me. These wings can be irritating, but I get a lot more attention. I suffer for my art.
Calu, Atlanta:
I'm a satanic dead Catholic schoolgirl. I like the irony of Catholicism and Satanism mixed together because it's all the same thing really. I don't believe in Satanism and I like to take the piss in organized religion. We don't have Halloween in England, but I make my Dad celebrate it with me. But being English, I have a real problem with Thanksgiving. Bloody Americans.

It's taking that next step to support a professional team. There’s been a number of teams over the years that have come and gone for a ton of different reasons. Hopefully Arthur Blank is going to pull the... | more...

Whether it was September 11th or the economy and all these kinds of things by the time we were 22, we had a lot of these things on our plate that we processed and acclimated to and included into our experience. I don't know what... | more...

image-1Sam: Hot dogs are good. Better buns at the Top Dog Express. Those dogs are perfect because they're a foot long and you can really dress them up. If you get a regular dog, it's a gamble because the buns fall apart and you have to put more effort in keeping that dog in there. We buy peanuts from the sweet lady under the bridge coming down here. I get a $3 peanuts bag every time. Same bag... | more...

I came out bobbing my head. They were concerned I may have had some mental defect. I constantly bumped my head in my sleep as a baby. She would hand me cooking spoons and I would get pitches and sounds out of... | more...

image-1Greg, Greenville, R.I.: Atlanta is definitely one of my best shows every year. It's right up there with Pittsburgh and Boston. It's just a very enthusiastic crowd, very educated crowd and they like crazy funky weird art, too, which is perfect for me. People are really nice, polite and good natured. You don't get that in Boston. They're grouchy. Hopefully, I'll be coming back in the... | more...
