Starred Saturdays: week of October 17

The leaves are changing, the days are getting shorter and the weather is quickly taking a turn for the worse.  Perfect time to stay in with a good book, right?

Want to scare your kids away from the candy bowl next weekend?  Try putting this gummy worm in there.  $28 gets you 26 inches (3 pounds) of worm.  The video of a guy eating it is really quite gross (and kind of NSFW).

Don't have cable but need to get in the mood for Halloween? Techland has found The Best Horror to Watch Online.  I strongly recommend Vincent Price in House on Haunted Hill.  I have it on DVD though.

Lenore has a new kitten and she is adorable!  Welcome to the book blog world, Kaia!  We can't wait to watch you grow up.

I've seen this book dominos video a few places this week but maybe you haven't come across it yet.  I love that it all ends with a book in a customer's hands.

I know it's not a scary picture but it still freaks me out.  These, on the other hand, are scary.

Something I didn't know about myself until I saw this photo spread -- I love seeing dogs in cars.  Not the poor ones locked in the sweltering heat on a summer day but the ones that are out for a drive with their families and like to check you out when you're stopped next to them at a light.  Warning: these are pictures of the sad, trapped types (but it's all for a good cause).

Fred Eerdekens ... Shadow Art ... enough said.  Here's one of his pieces.

Alright.  I'm tired now.

Perfecting the weekend collapse,


  1. Love that I got a new kitten is big news :)

  2. LOVED the book dominos! I must post on my facebook page. Thanks for sharing it.

  3. I am loving the shadow art!!
    And I'm a little scared to click on the scary photos link.

    And a 3 pound gummy worm??? I'm vomiting just thinking of it.

  4. The gummy worm video was just wrong. And yet...I couldn't turn away...

  5. Lenore - Well, it is! We all get to know those kitties like they're our own.

    Karen - I can't believe that they put 14 hours into setting it up!

    Jenners - Those shadows were truly amazing. I love unique art like that.

    Paige - I know. I watched the whole thing even though I wanted to hurl when they would take a massive mouthful of gummy worm. Blech!

  6. Okay, that gummy worm is just kinda gross!! :)

    And, I LOVE House on Haunted Hill with Vincent Price! But, we have already agreed that he is brilliant! :)
