All Hallows Eve #2

Posted on February 12, 2008

It wouldn’t be a proper Roadrunner Halloween without some words from the Murderdolls… so here are just a few Halloween-related questions we put to Acey, Wednesday 13, Eric, and Joey (being Halloween, Ben was in high demand as the Ghoul, whereabouts unknown…). What are you doing for Halloween? Acey: I’m still trying to figure out where I’ll be! W13: The Murderdolls would have been playing Halloween night with the legendary Danzig. It was gonna be a lot of fun, and I was looking forward to seeing the ghoulscouts on the day of the dead… however, the show has just been cancelled because of the fires in California at the moment, so who knows?! Eric: I will be attending a super-creepy Halloween party on an old school authentic pirate ship on the coast of southern California…… folks say the old ship is haunted……. Joey: Carving pumpkins and drinking Absinthe. Tips for the perfect Halloween? Acey: Lot’s of cool movies…House of 1,000 Corpses, Susperia, and Nightmare Before Christmas are good places to start. Make sure you have a love or even a ‘like’ one on hand too. W13: Halloween is a time when you should use your imagination… Don’t just go and be something that you bought at the store. Put some thought into it. Eric: Buy your eggs well in advance….. think ahead, rotten eggs are a more vicious assault…. plus, most stores won’t sell them to you close to Halloween… bring a couple of hard- boiled along, too….. why not? Joey: Walking down the middle of sunset out of my mind cradling a pumpkin drunk on absinthe (you know family stuff). Best í¢ä‰åñtricksí¢ä‰åŒ? Acey: Remote controls for starters….. W13: I use to hide in piles of leaves and jump out at unsuspecting people and scare the shit out of them. Eric: How can I even try to compete with Wednesday on this one? He’s devious….. This one’s all you 13…….. Joey: I think number 2 is quite the trick Best tunes for Halloween? Acey: AFI “Halloween” cover of the Misfits song. W13: They have the same fucking Halloween party CD’s every year, with Monster Mash, and The Purple People Eater, and I’m sick of it, that’s fucking boring. I would say an Alice Cooper song is perfect this time of year “I Love The Dead” or maybe the Cramps’ “Goo Goo Muck”, oh yeah and that band Murderdolls has some good ones too. Eric: Halloween – Misfits I Love The Dead – Alice Cooper Everyday Is Halloween – Ministry Bela Lugosi’s Dead – Bauhaus Code Blue (I wanna fuck the dead) í¢ä‰åäóì TSOL Any sort of musical re-creation of John Carpenter’s Halloween theme….. or the Exorcist (Tubular Bells) How-to-make-the-perfect Halloween costume? Acey: Never buy those plastic ones from Wal Mart type places… they suck and take NO imagination at all. W13: You can usually make the best stuff from stuff around the house. For example if you want to have rotting flesh take some white washable glue, the kind like you have at school and apply it to your face. Let it dry and pick at it to give the decaying rotting skin effect. Apply make up to it for shadow and realistic features. Fake blood can be made with corn syrup and red food dye. The ideas are endless, use your imagination. Eric: Liquid latex is the key to realistic gore!!!!!!! And good, thick fake blood…. not the crap in the tubes……… Joey: Everyday is Halloween to me in Slipknot and Murderdolls so I couldn’t really say… If you were to rewrite the history of Halloween according to the Murderdolls… Acey: Well that’s easy….there would be a Pumpkin King name Jack leading the whole thing and a misunderstood girl name Sally that would have a crush on him…he would have a dog named Zero and I guess you see where I’m going with this…. Eric: I’ll take it just the way it is, except for 2 things…… one, it should be once a month, maybe even more…. and two, a person should never be considered too old to trick or treat…………… for us, it’s everyday……we get to dress up, and there’s always plenty of tricks, and lots of treats…… Joey: Halloween has always been my favorite holiday, every kid always used to prefer Christmas but I always liked the dark and spookier elements that was Halloween. Murderdolls celebrate this holiday like most people do Thanksgiving and Christmas put together. I’ve always made Halloween an event and have always had a great time. So I couldn’t imagine rewriting a holiday that has meant so much to me growing up. Happy Halloween….
