Masculine Halloween costumes for your effeminate son

This video is a few years old and is courtesy of The Onion, a satirical digital media company.  However it is still funny and intended in good fun, although it doesn’t stretch the imagination to see something like this on the morning show FOX and Friends.

For those of you who love the more ghoulish side of Halloween, visits to one or more haunted houses always seems to be in order.  While I’m no expert on this sort of thing, I’ve done some digging and wanted to share with you some haunted houses you and your friends can plan to visit between now and the end of the month. I’ve not attended any of these locations so please share your comments to help others pick and choose where is the best haunted house.

Barrett’s Haunted Mansion is south of Boston in Abbington, MA. Tuesday, Oct 21 they will host their special Darkness Unleashed, which requires advance ticket purchase. Here is a $3 coupon good for visits Sunday thru Thursday.  More details can be found on their website,

Factory of Terror has three locations in Worcester, West Warwick, RI and Fall River. Print off a $2 coupon good for visits  Sunday thru Thursday WorcesterWest Warwick, RI and Fall River.  More details about individual locations, tickets and hours can be found on their website,

Salem’s 3-D Haunted House adds a twist by making this tour a 3-D extravaganza. You can also purchase combo tickets to get nightly walking tour through parts of Salem. Visit their website to get more info about tickets and  the 3-D Haunted house.

Spooky World may be the largest of the haunted houses in the area with their two locations in Litchfield, NH and Cranston, RI.  Based on feedback I read online, it seems like you would be best inclined to purchase their VIP tickets, but these come at a hefty price of ~$60 on Friday and Saturday or ~$50 Sunday thru Thursday. More details about Spooky World can be found on their website,

Theater Offensive Fundraiser: Masquerade

This past Friday I attended the Theater Offensive’s masquerade fundraiser at the Manhunt mansion in Brookline. You always know it is a good party when “Gay” Jim Clerkin from KISS 1o8 FM is spinning music for a party.  Jim is such a sweetheart and he always seems to be surrounded by such handsome, friendly guys. #Good2BTheDJ.

What you dressing up as on Halloween

Halloween hobo homoOne of the things that I love about my mother is her ability to remember and share funny memories from our past.  Earlier this week my mother sent this funny email to my younger brother and me.

“I remember one Halloween when you (MY BROTHER) wanted to be a homo.    Rob corrected you and said, ‘You mean a hobo.’ Funny how life turns out!

Love, Mom”
