Saturday 9: Tubular Bells

Crazy Sam’s  Saturday 9: Tubular Bells (1973)

On Saturdays I take a break from the heavy stuff and have some fun…
Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

1) According to Reader's Digest, The Exorcist is the scariest movie of all time. Have you seen it, and if so, did it scare you?
Yes, I saw it and no I wasn’t scared.

2) The Exorcist has been made into a TV series on Fox, premiering last month. Have you become a fan of any of the season's new shows?
Nope, and I don’t intent to.

3) "Tubular Bells" is a popular ringtone for both Android and iPhone. What's your ringtone?
Ring, ring, ring. It is just an old fashion telephone bell ringing sound
I have the Tubular Bells album by Mike Oldfield on vinyl form 1973.

4) As Halloween approaches, do you watch more scary shows and movies?
Not and I actually hate the fact that the only movies on TV this week are horror movies.

5) Do you have any recurring nightmares?

6) Have you carved a jack o' lantern this year?
Nope and I hibernate on Halloween night with the lights off and watch a movie on Netflix or Amazon

7) Do you like the taste of pumpkin seeds?
I never really cared for them; I am not a fan of them or sunflower seeds. I feel they are more for the birds.

8) What will the trick or treaters who knock on your door get?
A bucket of cold water… just kidding. Actually the neighborhood has grown up, the only kids are the grandkids visiting their grandparents.

9) A Halloween "let's pretend:" Back in the 1950s, a home in your neighborhood was the site of a gruesome murder/suicide. Relatives retained ownership of the house but declined to live there. During the ensuing decades, a legend grew: The tragic couple haunts the halls. Generations of schoolchildren insist they heard strange sounds and saw curtains often move mysteriously. Now the house is about to be demolished. A local charity is raising money by sponsoring a Halloween sleepover. Would you be willing to stay in this haunted house over night?
No problem, I don’t believe in ghosts or goblins.

But funny you should mention that; I had a mass murder live on the street behind me and I went to school with him, his nickname for me was Einstein. He robbed a bakery with another guy and they killed 7 people, the bakery was a bookie joint (kind of dumb to rob a mafia joint, but then they weren’t that bright to begin with) and the other guy’s cousin walked in while they were robbing the place.

Hey! I am actually home this weekend!
So I will be able to reply to your posted comments.

Freaky story about the murderer you know!

So, Einstein, that's a creepy story about the bakery. (Which makes it great for Halloween.)

Sometimes my neighbors will hibernate and we will hardly get any trick or treaters as a result.

Did you find it surprising that that the guy would have done what he did or was it believable?

Diana_CT said...

Yes, it was believable. We never thought they would do something like that but I believe that they did it.

Oh man, what a story about the mass murder. That sounds horrible.
