Halloween Watercooler


Vincent Price with a severed head.

Happy Halloween from Firedoglake.

Tonight, let’s take a few moments — or 26 — with the Muppets. Back in 2010, Suzanne shared some choice sketches from Vincent Price’s Halloween appearance on The Muppet Show. Here, tonight, is the complete episode.

In the spirit of changing our identities, here are a bunch of creative Guy Fawkes masks.

Unfortunately, for Central Texas, Halloween came with a record-breaking flood in parts of Austin and surrounding communities. Many people are displaced or face damage to their homes, vehicles, or belongings. Occupy Austin members and some other community members are collecting volunteers to help with clean up in the coming days, like a miniature Occupy Sandy.

We have a Google form where you can fill out your volunteer availability, or your needs if you or someone you know has been affected by the floods. Fill out your info or pass the link along to people you know in the area:

I’m also maintaining a pastebin list with a few #ATXFloods resources, but it’s far from complete. Let me know in the comments if you know of something I’m missing.

Housekeeping notes:

  • Please review our About Us page if you need a refresher on site rules, and
  • We encourage you to use our flag system — if you see an abusive comment, user or post, please flag it rather than replying. We review every flag and take the best action available to us.
  • If you have questions or concerns about Firedoglake-specific issues, please limit their discussion to Watercooler posts rather than starting new posts or making off-topic comments in others. But remember,
  • Firedoglake editors and staff are not allowed to comment on any moderation decisions.

What’s on your mind tonight? The Watercooler is an open conversation.
