Yay, Trick 'n Treats are in the supermarkets and only two months before Halloween gets here. My first craving is Pumpkin-Pudding flavoured KitKat of course!

If that isn't too sweet for you, here is the AKB48 gang sing their hit ハロウィン・ナイト (Halloween Night) live.

You get 13 mini-wafers, each with a little character and a different Jack-'o-Lantern face. As you can see, they aren't evenly distributed.

If you crave more of the same, this is the "Staff" version of the same song. Just a bunch of different people dancing to the tune.

Tastier than usual, it doesn't have the gourdish kick to it as before.

More "Staff", beware, the Waldos at the 20 second mark are creepy.

I tried what looked like potato chips but turned out to be mini-wafers of "France Pan (Bread)". Yummy enough but a tad too sweet for my palate.

This version may help you with the choreography so you can dance along at home.

The last treat I picked up is a Youkai Watch Pocky. I'll try it at school tomorrow.

This is the JKT48, a Dangdut* version. JKT48 are a clone band from Indonesia (Jakharta?).  
*Dangdut is a genre of Indonesian folk and traditional popular music that is partly derived from Hindustani, Malay, and Arabic music.

I kind of prefer it.
Finally the one craving that nobody has had is the demise of Wes Craven. RIP Freddie!


Frankenstein vs. Iron Man!

We all remember when the Frankenstein monster fought Iron Man way back in issue 101 of his comic, don't we?

Since today is the anniversary of the birth of Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley, and I happen to have a different version of this meeting, I give you Tetsujin 28 vs. Frankenstein

横山 光輝 (Yokoyama Mitsuteru), emulated the style of Osamu Tezuka (Astroboy, etc.) and created his own Iron-man, Tetsujin 28 gou (Iron Man #28) better known as Gigantor in North America.

Here is the story of the clash of these two Titans.

End of Chapter 2. If interest is there, to be continued...
Happy Birthday to Mary Shelley and thank you for creating such a versatile character!

I'm not sure how I missed the live action movie. I'll have to keep an eye out for it.

The Family Jewels.

My nephew William has asked whether I have any family heirlooms that he can give his current girlfriend, soon to be a fiancée if all goes well. (I hope she doesn't read this.) I had a few jewelry boxes full of loot stored in the back of a closet yet tough to reach due several boxes in the way.

This cameo was my mom's and I don't plan on giving it away anytime soon. (I did give a chain to an ex-girlfriend 2 years ago, this one I'm holding on to.)

These are the ringu I have. Some were either my mom's or owned by me once upon a time.

These are definitely from UFO Catcher. Years ago before they cracked down and made it tougher, I was  expert at winning stuff. These would be from that haul.

I am fairly sure this cross was given to me from my Godfather back when I was a teen (and he was still alive), yet the others I'm not really sure where they came from. More than likely, they're my moms.

 These were definitely UFO Caught.

I have a couple of chains, no idea whether they're real gold, or silver or whatever.

I lead a charmed life.

I gave my mom this hunk of silver back when I used to work at Johnson-Matthey Refinery as a security guard back in the early 80s. It has probably depreciated since then.

Will, you are welcome to any of the above (including the cheap crap.) I hope your gal likes it.

These cuff-links were given to me as a youth but I don't think I've ever used them. I need a shirt with cuffs first.

I doubt if this tie-clip is solid gold. I suspect I received it as volunteer which I did for about 15 years in the 80s and 80s for AYSP.

Just so I don't have my nerd credentials revoked, in the same drawer that these were found also included several lighters, most of which were also UFO Caught.

Finally, I have a Last Samurai pin. Not sure where I got it but I seem to recall seeing the movie on its opening day.

Hmm, now that I've disclosed all my worldly goods for the entire readership of this blog, I'd better start locking my door.
