Having Nightmares.

I had the day off today and instead of spending the day tidying my place and finding more entries for Halloween's Countdown, I spent the day 'oot n aboot, shopping and and wasting tons of time. Enjoyable but ultimately unproductive.

I did score a new pamphlet today for an anthology film I've never seen called デビルゾーン
(Devil Zone), though it is better known by its American title, Nightmares.

Based on this trailer, it looks pretty good.



I suspect it doesn't live up to the hype. The Wiki page does a far better job of describing the movie than I ever could (I told you, I haven't seen it.) Therefore without commentary by me, I present the highlights of the pamphlet.
















With Lance Henriksen, and Veronica Cartwright, it must hold some merit. Estevez is probably good and cocky and Richard Masur undoubtedly plays Richard Masur.
Besides, it has video games, killers, rats and a priest. That's a recipe for a good anthology or a good barroom joke.

I wanted to fill my tank at Costco since gas has jumped up by a dime and it is cheaper there, so I trekked through to the other side of town to fill up and get some kerosene. First thing I noticed was a distinct lack of Halloween displays and nothing but Christmas!!


Scattered among the snacks were a few Halloweeny items.




Finally I saw all their Halloween displays scrunched into one tiny section at the front, with almost everything sold out. The only costumes they had left were Minions, but even at half-price, I refuse to dress up as one.


I'll discuss what purchases I did make at a later date, for now, I'll leave you with today's Kemono Friend, the  ピーチパンサー (Peach Panther). She has a panther's ears and tail, other than that she is just pink and peachy. (This video rather obviously proclaims where her origins are from. With apologies to Henry Mancini.)


That's it for now, I have to go to bed!

Creepy Sticker Time!

I went to Hillside Mall and there is a Candy Shop there called a Dagashiya, a traditional type of store that dates back to the Meiji age. (That link links to the top ten Dagishiya including a cool one in Sendai's S-Pal.) I didn't get any sweets yet I did score some awesome spooky stickers.


There are several doubles, so I shall give them away in a contest!


Each of them has the phrase カードネムリ (Card nemuri) written upon them. Nemuri means smoke, so maybe these were originally Tobacco cards. I dunno.






 

 

 

 

 

This is what the obverse of the card looks like. That red streak in the middle is a strip of glue so you can attach it somewhere.


Gee, there are only 15 different ones, that means there are many duplicates since I bought a book of fifty. If anyone would like one, let me know in the comments and I'll send you a little care package with a sticker and one or two (or three) other goodies within.

Sticking to a creepy theme, I discovered a Gatcha machine with Minion Monsters within.


I only wanted the Creature yet after several tries, I was unsuccessful. I finally got one and completed a set in the interim.







I noticed that they have crept into the grocery store as well. I didn't pick up any snacks of theirs yet, I may do so later.



Today's Kemono Friend is a canine cryptid called イヌガミギョウブ  or Inugami Gyoubu.


I'm not sure why it says "808" on her flask so I'm going to pretend that it says "BOB" and is thus related to the Minions above.

While at the Hillside Mall, which coincidentally is located on the side of a hill, I took a photo of the surroundings. (You may want to click upon the pic to embiggen it.)


There is a toy store there that sells stuff really cheaply and they just happened to have some new Funko Mystery Minis. I bought several Justice League and a few Star Wars ones but they also had Dr. Seuss and Coco.


Yay, I got Horton!
(Of course, I checked the weight of all the boxes and chose the heaviest one but don't tell anyone.)


I was worried that I might not get a skeletonized character but fortunately I snagged Bony-Coco.


For a buck, I took a chance at a Pint-Sized Heroes set of Snow White. I wanted to get a villain and not a Dopey Dopey, and Woohoo!, I scored the Queen as crone.


A pretty good trip after all!

If you're ready for bed, you may want to put yourself to sleep reading a new book such as those found at Spooky Kidlit. Good night!

ps. Don't forget to comment on the stickers and I'll send you one of your favourite!
CONTEST!!
