Halloween Day by Day: Top Five Halloween Masks to Wear During the Pandemic


Halloween is just a few mere days away, and a day that's usually full of good cheer and playfulness has become somber and uncertain.  What is the point if trick or treating and parties are gonna curtailed?

Well, one thing about Halloween that MIGHT allow at least the trick or treaters to go out is that it's mask compliant!  So, with that in mind, here are my Top Five Halloween Masks to Wear During the Pandemic...

Let's start with a simple one- Ghost Face from the "Scream" franchise.  It's simple (as I said) and fun- while also being roomy enough to allow people to breath freely without spewing potential germs, etc on those around them.

The classic Michael Myers mask is a staple of the holiday due to the "Halloween" franchise.  Like Ghost Face, it's simple, but roomy and fun.  You don't even have to talk in order to be "in character"- which will cut down on the chances of inadvertently spreading COVID.

"The Karen".  It's a new mask that's come out to commemorate the viral sensation of entitled white women screaming at hapless cashiers, "I want to speak to your manager!".  Like the others, it's fairly roomy, so you can breath freely.  It's also a nicely detailed mask- the hair especially is well done.  Not only that- but if your child doesn't get enough candy, they can scream about wanting to see the manager...

The COVID-19 mask is supposedly being pulled from shelves due to it being "offensive", and mocking the 200,000+ victims.  I can certainly see it being seen as such... but it's still amusing to me.  If you wish to make a political statement with it, you can get a few others to wear it as well, and pair it with the following mask...

President Trump.  It's only natural that there will be many of these this year, as masks mocking famous people are usually popular at Halloween.  This one also looks quite roomy- allowing for free breathing, and some "herd immunity" to COVID.  I must confess though... THIS mask looks a little like a sex doll reject...

So, there you have it- my top five pandemic Halloween masks!

#CocktailHour: Slushtail

  Summer approaches, inspiring thoughts of sunshine, backyard parties, and having a tip and sip with friends.  With that in mind, I bring you this week sunny beverage. To make a slushtail, mix a can of frozen orange juice, a can of frozen lemonade (or limeade), a can of pineapple juice, a couple cups of black tea (or English Breakfast), and two cups of bourbon- such as Southern Comfort, in a pitcher.  When it's all nicely mixed, put it in the freezer until it's a nice slushy consistency. Scoop the slush into a cocktail glass, and pour in some Sprite or 7-Up.  Add a little umbrella for some frivolous fun, and a straw. Voila!  Ready to enjoy. This is a very refreshing drink.  The fruit juices, Sprite, and bourbon- when chilled makes for a great punch-like drink.  The bourbon doesn't overwhelm juices.   In fact, they are all nicely balanced in terms of flavors.  The sourness of the citrus fruits contrasts well with the slightly sweeter Southern Comfort.  It was refreshing enou

Marcus Flor vs Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

In film, there's nothing I enjoy more than passionate creativity. Compared to the sea of mediocrity surrounding it, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is practically overflowing with it. This animated movie is vibrant, kinetic, and extremely inventive with its art style. On top of all that, this is just a solid movie. It tells its story with sincerity and tact, always focusing on the important aspects of Miles' emotional journey. The script wastes no time on pointless scenes or moments, which also gives the film an energetic rhythm that draws you in. One of the other great aspects of this movie is its reinvention of the Spider-Man story. It's clever writing demonstrates a true understanding of the webslinger, and offers commentary on the current state of his movie adaptations. In the end, you get a film both Spidey fans and non-fans can enjoy. Above all other aspects, what I like most about Spider-Verse is how fun it is. It demonstrates quality animation and filmmaking doesn

From The Basement - the "final" three

Just a gentle reminder From The Basement returns next Friday -- June 11 -- to the mighty Radio NL with an all-new episode! That's the good news. The bad news it'll be the first of our final three prime-time shows. What, you might ask? Are you bastards quitting AGAIN!?!? No. No we're not. We learned our lesson the last time. Shawn and I's long-running show will return to being "just a podcast," and not adhering to any set broadcast schedule. Why, you ask? Our lives are becoming increasingly busy outside of The Basement, and it's getting harder for Shawn and I to keep up with the latest movies, TV shows and entertainment news. We'd rather cease our weekly duties than produce an inferior product. Simple as that. Much thanks to Howie Reimer and the Radio NL crew for hosting us the last three years, first as a Friday morning segment, then as a prime-time series. It's been a blast! Don't worry, we're not coasting on these last three episodes. T
