Halloweenie Kent 2007

I didn't 'shrink' the pix....so if you have dial-up you will have to have patience whilst they load....

More pix than you can shake a stick at

Okay, I was camera crippled last night....my 'new' camera decided that the flash was going to no longer work, i could only take 'flashless' pix....so i had my old camera and eddie had his camera...you can tell the pix eddie took as the date is on them and the date is 6/9/05....i assure you they were taken last night...

it was raining all day whole town....it stopped raining around 10pm which is when we got downtown....there was NOT as many people as last year...i would say that the crowd was around 10,000....but as eddie pointed out there was more people dressed up than usual....it started to thin out around 1am which is when we left...

now kent always says this is 'unofficial' blah blah blah yet this year they had vendors on main street....so this 'unofficial' shindig had permitted vendors....here they are set up on main street...you can see this is still 'early' as you just see cars, no peoples really....it started filling up around 10:30pm....



there also had a dominos set up down on franklin and of COURSE Gyro Bob was there...who got the most business?? Gyro Bob of course! he has the BEST gyros! no, i didn't get one...the line was too long....

firstly we saw a drunk bush with his secret service guy.....nice...



now, in no particular order....except for my costume 'winners' which are last...and who knows where i'll toss in some milk maiden! ;)

Marge and Lisa Simpson were there...no Homer or Bart...they must have stayed home....



The Wicked Witch and Smurfette were getting excellent burritos at Taco Tonto's...and if you have never had a Taco Tonto's burrito you do not know what you are missing....



3 blind mice...these were the only ones down there, usually there's a few sets...impressive they knew which way the camera was eh?



there were people there who are 'regulars'....i should just have 'stock' pix of them...if i were to do that, i'd be re-running pix of the bag of pot, bird flu, leatherface with a REAL chain saw, and american gothic....but i am not one to do things like that.....but i have a new pix of a 'regular'....here's a new one of the American Gothic couple...they go around and pose like this.....very creative if you ask me...



here's the first Amy Winehouse we encountered....she did a good job with the tattoos....



this next Amy Winehouse was EXTREMELY excited when i saw her walking towards us and i said "here comes Amy Winehouse"...she started HUGGING ME she was so excited someone recognized her....gee....thanks, i guess....she was very enthused though...



is this a character from something?? or just a random pinhead?? i like this mask though...whatever it may be from....



as i was driving eddie home to drop him off, we saw Anna Nicole Smith walking home....eddie asked for confirmation that she WAS Anna Nicole and yes she was! i mean, she could have a been a very full figured Marylin Monroe....but no, she was Anna Nicole....he snapped her pix as we were at a red light....no Howard K. Stern or Larry Birkhead, they must have stayed home with Dannielynn....



Brains yum.....i really like the make up on this guy....he was with 3 other guys all dressed the same with the same awesome makeup job...



this is mario, mario kart? something with mario....i'm not sure what....there was like 6 or so of these guys riding around in traffic on trikes....here's a pix of them...



now, added enhanced halloweenie in kent reporting with VIDEO....here's the aforementioned mario kart whatevers and at the end is the 3 little pigs and the big bad wolf in the street....



Picnic anyone??



About a dozen guys were a dragon....this was impossible to take a pix of as they kept moving...so video came in handy here....



there were no limos this year....as eddie pointed out it was probably due to the economy....

there were people bundled up in the back of a pickup truck driving around....



and there was a hay ride...there usually is one of them every year...



a huge group arrived downtown in a party bus...



medievil characters...or maybe from a show or movie...i dunno...nice costumes...



There were OLD people there! They didn't smell like vitamins or pee though...



this girl was a fucking bitch and told eddie "don't you fucking take my picture"....eddie told her "don't you fucking dress up"...then he took her picture....he's right....don't dress up if you don't want someone taking your pix! dozens of people go around taking pix of the costumes....fucking bitch....



this guy is there every year too....usually he stays in a doorway...last night though he was walking around the crowd....



here's 3 seconds of the Jamaican bobsled team.....this 'team' had a shopping cart as a sled...there was another jamaican bobsled team that had a real sled...



Pacman, Ms. Pacman and the ghosts were there....



Santa and an elf were there...Santa sat on this bench for hours wishing everyone a merry christmas!



Whac-a-mole???



there was the usual non-PC costumes of 'sperm', 'used napkins', etc....but we had a couple 'new' entries in the non-PC category this year....by far i favored this one...



a non-PC and 'in the news' one would be Michael Vick....



One eyed trouser snake...



and in the 'porn' category would be the Devil in Miss Jones...



speaking of porn there was several Paris Hiltons....we didn't get pix though....

i am not sure if these people are in costume or not...they look good either way....



these guy were down there last year and they returned with their same act, which is very good...the Village People! They go around and do a little 'performance' then move on and do it again down the street aways...

i HAD this village people clip on youtube, but their copyright holder is a nazi and apparently my 13 second clip of people DRESSED AS the village people playing YMCA and dancing along made them loose money...how, i have no clue....

watch the village people HERE ...you must have quicktime....it takes a sec to download....

the DOG was there with his wife Beth....praise christ...



Marie Antoinette, pre-head loosing...



we walked up towards campus...this 'unofficial' kent halloweenie had official looking electronic signs denoting parking...parking in the Rockwell Hall lot too...yeah, i am sure the campus didn't mind collecting $5 per car....you can see across the street the crowds of people walking downtown....



as we were walking back down town eddie encountered asshole frat boys...these assholes were heckling eddie that he wasn't in an costume....they're from delta tau delta Drew Carey's old frat [he attended Kent State]....drew should be ashamed of these assholes...



large police presence as always....unless it is BLATANT, the police are very cool about halloweenie in kent....though i do take issue with why they are in big groups.....i mean, WHY??? it seems like wasted manpower there...



i saw this guy dressed like a flower with his eyes crossing as he staggered past us going down main street...i told eddie he'd be down for the count soon....when we were on the other side of the street we saw a large gathering of police escorting the drunk flower to an ambulance....it took 6 cops to walk this drunk to the ambulance....a little excessive if you ask me...



right after we saw this, we crossed the street and saw a drunk chick get busted....again it took a huge group of police to escort one drunk chick....



at this same time there was a cameraman from some tv station filming the drunk chick get arrested.....the newsvan had no identifying logo on it...



this guy is a total asshole....so i'm posting his pix here....here's a pix of an ASSHOLE CAMERA MAN.......



after the drunk chick was arrested, the police were writing a ticket to some guy in the alley...the camera man was filming this too...eddie went to take a pix of the guy getting a ticket...for some reason the cameraman thought eddie was taking a pix of him and got all assholey and said "don't take my pix".....so i went and took his pix (don't fuck with my friends) and he told me "fuck you"....so i flipped over to video mode...it's dark, hard to see, don't care...i called him an asshole and he IS an asshole...



i wish i had gotten a pix of the 'birthday suit' outfit...that was very clever...the girl was carrying a happy birthday balloon and had on beige tights and a leotard (nude colored)....i like clever costumes...

Ms. Piggy was there with Kermy baby...



i dunno if this chick is related to Ms. Piggy or not....i am sure she was cold though....



Carmen Miranda is alive and well!



it was nippy out...not as cold as last year...but cold....these guys (or girls) were warm!



Popeye and Olive Oil....



a couple hospital patients, replete with urine looking filled catheter bags!



Here's a milk maid and her cow....i dunno why her face is in the cow's ass in the first shot...methane gas collection to save the earth from global warming?? i'm sure al gore would applaud that effort!



this is a nice pix of the milk maiden.....



here's another pix of the milk maiden with the cow in the 'proper' position....nice job with the 'milk' spilling out of the bucket!!!!



now onto my 'winners'...like they get a prize...haha....

honorable mention is the 3 pigs and the big bad wolf....



for another honorable mention is California...yes, CALIFORNIA....he was california...he was walking around saying "i'm california and my brush is on fire"...over and over he kept saying that......brilliant...yes seriously....brilliant....



now onto the top 3.....and believe me this was difficult, as there was no real stand out costumes like last year...there were great ones...but no real "wow" types....(but wow, check out that milk spilling from the milk maidens bucket! haha...yes i do personally know the milk maiden....)...

#3 is Pirated Music....very clever....



#2 These ladies were excited that i identified them! the 4 seasons and the one on the far left is 'mother nature'....so here's the 4 seasons and mother nature....very creative...



#1 is Lincoln with a bullet hole....here's 2 pix, one from eddie and from me as they show different angles....why is this #1? because of the creativity and execution (no pun intended there...or is there??)....





thus concludes Halloweenie 2007's post...next year i WILL have a camera with flash....and i am hoping that it doesn't rain all day...i think the rain kept people from out of town from coming....don't let it bug you!!!

and hopefully they won't have an overabundance of assholes.....like that cameraman....i wish i could figure out what station he repped....and those asshole frat boys....well wait, they're always assholes....that's redundant....whatever....

very nice evening!!!!!! i didn't get that cold and i am not really sick today!!! HOORAY!!!!!!!
