Halloween Haute Couture

Hallow's eve is almost upon us. Have you got your costume yet? You don't know who to go as? Well, this is your lucky day. nonamedufus is happy to share with you some ideas for the costume-challenged among you.

Hugh Laurie

Is there a doctor in the House?

Cut your hair with a straight-edged razor, grow a three-day beard, swipe Uncle Gimpy's cane and don a T-shirt that's been sitting in the laundry for several weeks and you too could trick or treat as Dr. House. Who knows, maybe you too could attract a Dr. Cuddy, voted as having the best breasts in television.

Betty White

Women are from Venus, Betty's from Mars Bars

She's on Saturday Night Live, in every second television commercial, situation comedy and feature film this fall. She's everywhere. And now she could be trick or treating down your block. A white fright wig and an able walker are all you need to be the hit of Halloween this year. The popularity of this character's iffy as she may drop dead at any moment.

Justin Bieber

Pop's Canuck mop-top

Entirely up to you. If you're looking forward to having eggs pelted at you, go for it.

Keith Richards

"It's great to be here. It's great to be anywhere."

If you like to mumble, smoke ashes, and pretend you still know how to strum a guitar this costume's for you. An unbuttoned shirt, scarves and a head bandana are all that's required. Carrying a bottle of Jack Daniels while chain-smoking, stumbling down the street and flipping the bird are sure to enhance the impact of this character.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad

Asshole of evil.

Cut your hair with a straight-edged razor, grow a three-day beard...wait, didn't we do this one already? Shouting out such phrases as "Death to American infidels" and "I've got a nuclear reactor, nanny, nanny, boo-boo" is sure to separate you from the mere ghosts and goblins on your street. Caution: this costume only performs tricks and receives no treats.

Keith Richards is by far the SCARIEST rocker ever. He's even scarier than MEATLOAF or GEDDE LEE.

That's pretty darn scary!

(Can't he afford some botox for those drug-grooves etched on his face?)

hee hee

Keith Richards *almost* looks like a wax figure in that picture. I wonder what he would look like after a face lift. I wonder if *anything* could be done with his face.
Ziva said…
You're a genius! Of course I'll go as Ahmadinejad! A straight-edged razor and a three-day beard shouldn't be too hard to find. Now I just have to perfect my "I'm the President of one of those Middle Eastern countries, couldn't care less about human rights, hate Israel and everything it stands for and am fully prepared to level the rest of the world with the ground with all the nuclear weapons I have in my pockets"-act, and I'm golden.

Quirks: I don't know how the guy has managed to stay alive this long. For all we know he might be a zombie!
nonamedufus said…
cardiogirl: Oh, don't touch the face. That's the face we've all come to know and... well, come to know.
nonamedufus said…
Ziva: A genius? Pshaw. Um, you sure said a mouth full there. You really are golden. *bows down*

And for those twins, there's always the Palin/O'Donnell option.
nonamedufus said…
00dozo: That'd be really scary. The bitch and the witch. Ha, ha.
Boom Boom Larew said…
Bitch & Witch... hahahaha! Love it! With my walker, I'm all set to go as Betty White. (And with my luck, I could always fall over dead in the process!)
nonamedufus said…
Boom Boom: I know she's everywhere but I love that Mars Bar commercial where the guy says "C'mom, man, you're playing like Betty White" and she goes "That's not what your girlfriend says". Okay, well I thought it was funny.
Linda Medrano said…
I'm going to be Pam Anderson.
nonamedufus said…
Linda: You're doing a new spread for Playboy? Send pictures!
Jaffer said…
Oh darn it ... I was gonna be Pam Anderson !

Jaffer & Linda: Now girls. Tray and work this out amongst yourselves.

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
