Evil is real. The excitement happens when it invades our safe areas. Dean Cundey understands this well. Back in 1978, the legendary cinematographer expertly used shadows to illustrate the encroachment of evil into the otherwise idyllic small town of Haddonfield, Ill. in the original “Halloween.” The film — which revolutionized horror cinema when it introduced the sadistic Michael Myers and scream queen Jamie Lee Curtis as student Laurie Strode — celebrates its 40th anniversary on Oct. 25.
For a minute I thought that Github had gone all IndieWeb by changing color/branding to match that of the IndieWeb.org website and logos.
Then I realized that it was probably just a one day Halloween thing.
Alas… Happy Halloween IndieWebbers! 🎃
Everyone I know has jumped on the Halloween bandwagon on Twitter and added one or more Halloween related emoji to their Twitter name. Jack-o-lanterns, ghosts, etc. abound. Some have even changed their names a bit to fit into the theme.
Some of my favorites:
@JordanUhl is now jordan ghoul 👻 ☠️ 🎃
@rachsyme is now🎃 rachel slime 🎃
@VictoriaAveyard is Victoria Graveyard 🎃
@BrendonHope is 🎃 Abandon Hope 🎃
@spicer is Christian Spider 🕷 🎃
@Juliet_Shen is 🎃 Ghouliet Shen 🎃
Despite the fact that Halloween is my favorite holiday, and since retailers are already jumping the gun on Christmas, I thought I’d do the same. I’m changing my Twitter name to something like:
