    1. Of course, it's one of my favorite holidays.
    2. You mean as in Halloween-exclusive candy? That I'm not sure.
    3. I'm not sure if YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN actually counts as a Halloween movie, but it's always enjoyable to watch this time of year; as for TV special, you can't go wrong with IT'S THE GREAT PUMPKIN, CHARLIE BROWN.
    4. I don't really think I have one that particularly stands out as a favorite.
    5. I've been to a couple, but they were when I was a really little kid, so my memories of both of them are really blurry.
    6. I have a whole playlist of 'em; I'll catch you later on this one.
    7. Low-tier candy for sure.
    8. No.
    9. No.
    10. There was one year where I had a bunch of specific Halloween songs stuck in my head such as "Werewolves of London," "Here Comes the Bride of Frankenstein," and especially "Vampire Girl."

    1. Sure do! I don't go trick-or-treating anymore, though.

    2. Candy corn (am I the only one who likes it???), Reese's peanut butter cups, Starbursts, Skittles, Butterfingers, M&M's (the peanut butter ones, specifically), popcorn balls (they count, right?)

    3. It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, The Day the World Got Really Screwed Up (an episode of Angry Beavers), and Garfield's Halloween Adventure (Thank you for reminding me of that, Erin! I always loved the part when Garfield and Odie kept pulling the masks off only to keep finding another one underneath.)

    4. Don't have one.

    5. I don't think so. If I did, I was probably very young and I can't remember it.

    6. This is Halloween, The Monster Mash

    7. Those gross candies like Necco Wafers.

    8. Nope.

    9. Of course.

    10. When my cousin and I were younger (I think I was around 9 and he was around 6), we went to a "Trunk-or-Treat" (which is when people park in a parking lot and give out candy in the trunks of their cars) with my mom and my aunt. Anyway, somebody was playing loud music, which scared my cousin and made him cry. He later calmed down and told us (and these were his exact words), "I didn't like that beat!" The way he put it just cracked us all up. We still laugh about it to this day.

    2. Favorite Halloween candy? Now that's tough. I'm gonna cop-out and say 3 Musketeers, but it's really hard.

    3. Favorite Halloween movie or TV special? Pretty much every horror movie ever. I'll probably watch the original Halloween when the day comes.

    1. What's your name? Karsten
    2. Where do you live? Somewhere in the south.
    3. Did you kill George Costanza? Maybe.
    4. Did you kill George Costanza? Why do you need to know?
    5. Did you kill George Costanza? That's none of your business. It's just between me and George.
    6. Are you a reptillian? I'm a Caribbean Amphibian.
    7. Is this Jurassic Park? Maybe. The president kind of reminds me of a Jurassic Park villain.
    8. Did you kill George Costanza? Well, he certainly can't tell you.
    9. Define "rarely." YOU CAN'T TELL ME WHAT TO DO!
    10. Did you kill George Costanza? Alright you broke me! I'll tell you everything I know! Elaine killed Kramer, and then Jerry killed Elaine, and George killed Jerry and married Newman, but that was illegal in the 90s, so they ran away. Newman was tired of hiding, so he decided to turn himself over to the The Po Po, but George wasn't ready to go to jail, so he killed Newman, and paid George Steinbrenner a handsome amount of money to pretend to be him, since they have the same first name, so it's only half lying. And then George Steinbrenner lived the rest of his days in a very hygienic rich people prison, and George Costanza thought he had gotten away with everything, when suddenly, he was walking to his car and he slipped on a stray banana peel, had a bad fall, and...was admitted to the best hospital in town, where he recovered in less than a month. But very soon, he began to regret everything he had done, and he started to feel nostalgic for his old life. So, he went back home, since he was no longer a wanted fugitive, and visited his parents' house for the first time in twenty years. He opened the door to find their bloody, lifeless bodies on the living room floor. George screamed in anguish and anger at the terrible sight, when suddenly, from behind him, his father showed up pointing a gun at him. And George's father was all like, "This has to end right now". And George is all like "Whaaa??? I thought you were dead!!" , and George's father says "No, but your about to be. Those were decoy bodies." He shoots at George one time, but misses. He shoots and misses again. One last fire of the gun hits George in the shoulder. George hunches over and grunts in pain. His father gets ready to finish him with one last blow, when suddenly, George's mother flies though the door wearing a Superman cape. She grabs her son, and they burst through an open window in the apartment. She flies higher, and higher, and higher. George looks at his mom, with tears in his eyes and says, "Ma, you saved me, even after everything i've done." His mom just smiles at him and says "Of course;You're my little boy". Just then, a skyscraper appears, seemingly of of nowhere. George's mother flies *SMACK! straight into it. Unconscious she begins free falling, 1,000 feet to her demise. George tries frantically to wake her up, but it's no use. George closes his eyes and waits for the inevitable. "Oooohh, if only I hadn't killed Newman and Jerry, and Jerry hadn't killed Elaine, and Elaine hadn't killed Kraimer, none of this would've happened." Just than, the army catches glimpse of them. An army general shouts "Old ladies ain't supposed to fly! Shoot 'em down, men!"
    And they did, they shot George and his mother down with their tanks, and guns, and missiles, atomic bombs, harpoons, and bows and arrows. The two smash to the ground in a horrible mess.
    They're both dead now ............................................................................................................ OR ARE THEY??????


    The moral of the story is, "old women shouldn't fly". THE END?

    4. Rocky and Bullwinkle Season 1.
    5. I think it was DODGEBALL: A TRUE UNDERDOG STORY.

    7. It was one of the following three: "Hitchin' a Ride" by Vanity Fair, "The Sounds of Silence" by Simon & Garfunkel, or "The Word is No" from SST.
    8. I honestly don't remember, but I think it was probably Whose Line clips.

    3. What was the last record you got?

    1. Don't remember...probably a show on Cartoon Network or something.
    2. Music CD? Um...possibly could be King Biscuit Flower Hour Presents Ringo & His New All-Starr Band, which we got at Borders.
    3. Nothing.
    4. I think it might've been Toy Story/Toy Story 2 as a two-pack, back in 2002.
    5. "Ernie's Little Lie" for Christmas in 2010.
    6. Apparently, according to my mom, when I was like 5 or 6, I bought these things on Amazon.com, but I don't even remember it. The earliest thing I actually remember is playing on Cartoon Network's website in late 2001/early 2002.
    7. N/A
    8. Jim Henson's "A Count of 10" film in June 2006.
    9. Nothing.
    10. Probably camera storage. It's much easier now to get photos and videos on your computer with memory sticks and SD cards than it was 15 years ago with cassettes and film development. Also the Internet, too.
