How's it going my gumdrops? Is it just me or am I the only adult, who is jealous of kids for Halloween this year? I don't know about everyone else but my portion of Wisconsin will be warm, this weekend.
If you do NOT live in Florida, California, or another state(s) with sunny and warm weather, October's usually cold. Trick-or-treating at the end of the month always sucked in that aspect because the weather was usually cold.
Growing up, it was a little difficult flaunting our Halloween costumes mostly because we would be trick-or-treating in freezing cold weather. Normally we had to carry our coats and jackets with us, if not wear them OVER our costumes. If you didn't carry a coat or a jacket with you, there was a great chance you would be sucking on a cough drop because you were coming down with a cold within a matter of hours.
This Halloween in my hometown, it will be in the 50's and 60's. It may even reach 70 degrees on the day of Halloween! Consider children to be lucky this year. Yes, I know adults celebrate Halloween, too.
As for me, my family and I haven't celebrated Halloween in YEARS. My neighborhood consists of mostly retirees and senior citizens. Also, my street is mostly a ghost town. At the same time, it is 1 of the busiest main streets for drivers, which makes it noisy for us to sleep.
Meanwhile, you may have noticed on Thursday, that It's Not All Gumdrops & Unicorns was down, AGAIN. I have no idea what has been going on with Webs, lately. Usually, I don't have these types of glitches where this entire website is down.
Last week, Webs experienced server issues. Considering that a lot of popular websites suffered from DDOS Attacks last week, it would NOT surprise me if Webs had another DDOS Attack as well. Regardless, most of us with our own sites have been very irate. In case you missed the last blog, here it is once again.
On another note, today is the last Song Saturday of this month. If you were here last Saturday, you already know that you are getting another dose of Michael Jackson. You all knew this was coming, right? If not, you really should've.
The music video and song, "Thriller" off Michael Jackson's Thriller album were already considered classics before ever reaching 20 years. Normally, a song has to be at least 20 years old, in order to be considered "classic." I believe it is safe to say that almost everyone young AND old, and from all different walks of life STILL love "Thriller," 34 years later.
Generally speaking, had the music video for the song "Thriller" never been filmed, there wouldn't have been any singer or groups from various genres and sub-genres turning their music videos into short films. Just think about it.
How many in The Music Industry have turned their music videos into short films?
After "Thriller" was turned into a music video/short film, other mainstream musicians in the industry jumped on the bandwagon. Whether you love Michael Jackson or hate him, the man was not only a trend setter, but also had leadership skills.
I have NOT even had the chance to read all the accolades, that Michael Jackson earned and received over these last 3 decades or so.
In 2006, Guiness World Records had listed the music video for "Thriller" as the "most successful music video." Then 3 years later (2009), the Library Of Congress inducted the music video into the National Film Registry.
Supposedly, "Thriller" was the 1st music video to EVER be inducted into the National Film Registry for being "culturally, historically or aesthetically significant."
That right there should speak VOLUMES. Also, let's not forget that it is automatically a given that EVERY Halloween, someone somewhere around the world is celebrating the holiday with "Thriller."
During Halloween Season, Party City always advertises their stores using Michael Jackson's song.

That baby dressed in the devil costume looks so adorable. Anyway, here is Michael Jackson's "Thriller" for today's Song Saturday.
