Creepy

Just a little.

I caught a link this morning that took me to a page at Wired where some vintage Halloween pictures were displayed. Guy named Steven Martin collected the pictures, mostly via e(vil)Bay. The photos, some pictured below, seem rather….I dunno…off. Like they’re all ho-ho and ha-ha and yay, but hiding something really sinister and hideous. Like clowns.

No clue what the guy in the lower right of the above picture is supposed to be. It all kind of trips my creep-o-meter. Art does that to me sometimes.

Mr. Martin describes himself as “obsessive compulsive” where collecting old photographs is concerned. Interesting condition, that. I mean, the guy does have a strange obsession with things old and odd.

Speaking of which…the Fink is late. Gotta git. Happy Tuesday!

    Yes! Absence of color…the washed-out, non-smiling faces…the home-made masks. It’s just a totally bizarro feel. The pointy hats make my skin crawl, too, and I don’t know why.
