Monday Music Moves Me (The Late Edition): Music In the Dark #CountdowntoHalloween2023

 Hey Zombie Friendly People! I do realize it is Wednesday and music was to be posted on Monday. Remember though, zombies can be slow so we are just catching up.

Those great gals over on the 4M's felt the theme this week should be dancing in the dark or music in the dark. Something like that. Hey, I am hungry so, ya know. Need brains! I digress.

First song seems perfect to dance to. Bruce!

Next up dancing with monster friends.

Finally, if you are scared you should dance.

Link up and have some fun! ~Master Crypt Keeper, Michelle

Those #Halloween Test #CountdowntoHalloween2023

 I am sure all of us at one point or another have played those name test or trivia test on FB. I know I have.

I thought it would be fun to do a few of the Halloween ones that I could find. Here are my results...enjoy!

Tell me in comments what ones you have played or play one and share.

I would have thought werewolf but okay.

Pretty much. My home is not decorated scary at all.

Well, yeah.

Pretty true I suppose.

This is supposed to be my Halloween nickname. LOL

I am not going to tell you which one for at least a week. What do you think?

~Master Crypt Keeper, Michelle also works! ;)

Monday's Music Moves Me: Freebie #CountdowntoHalloween2023

Photo credit to: Guy Gilchrist

Well, hi my favorite spooks! I have missed a few days but was trying desperately to get the Countdown blog fixed. I finally did that so I can get in now on the fun more.

This week, like every week, Monday's Music Moves Me boils and ghouls spin some tunes. It has been so long since I played, I bet they think I don't like them anymore. Oh, but I boo! (see what I did there.)

Anyway, this week is freebie week so let's go!

The theme for the Halloween Countdown this year is Grave Yard Smash. So guess what me first tune is?

Well, who else is dancing in the grave yard? Hmm..maybe these guys are rattling.

Then there are these "folks".

The zombies crashed the party and some are not happy.

No dance party in a grave yard can be complete without drinks.

See you next bat time,

The Crypt Is Open and the Zombies Are Walking Among Us #CountdowntoHalloween2023

Hey! Welcome to my crypt. This is where zombies and all sorts of creatures hang out and have fun. You never know who or what is going to show up here so, come back often.

I am 4 days late getting the crypt open for the 2023 season. Ugh! However, that only means twice the fun. Ey?

Ok, so it is Wednesday and I thought we should have a Wednesday dance party. Makes sense right?

Let's go!

The whole family gets in the groove. Check out Thing!

Lurch, he had to take dance lessons but look at that smooth dancer.

See you tomorrow!

Day 24: #Vampire Facts #CountdowntoHalloween2022

Credit to playbuzz

vampire is a mythical creature that subsists by feeding on the vital essence (generally in the form of blood) of the living. In European folklore, vampires are undead creatures that often visited loved ones and caused mischief or deaths in the neighbourhoods they inhabited while they were alive. They wore shrouds and were often described as bloated and of ruddy or dark countenance, markedly different from today's gaunt, pale vampire which dates from the early 19th century.

*The earliest confirmed record of the word vampire in English dates from 1688, with a lack of explanation of its meaning suggesting it was in regular use.

* Vampire HistoryIn Russian folklore, vampires were said to have once been witches or people who had rebelled against the Russian Orthodox Church while they were alive

*. Burying a corpse upside-down was widespread, as was placing earthly objects, such as scythes or sickles

*One method of finding a vampire's grave involved leading a virgin boy through a graveyard or church grounds on a virgin stallion—the horse would supposedly balk at the grave in question

*Some traditions also hold that a vampire cannot enter a house unless invited by the owner; after the first invitation they can come and go as they please.

*Methods of destroying suspected vampires varied, with staking the most commonly cited method, particularly in South Slavic cultures

Hello my Zombie friends. It is time to get down and dance with the Monday's Music Moves Me folks. As the theme this week is whatever we want to play, you know it is going to be Halloween stuff from me. But what? Hmm...

First up: I truly love it when the skeletons rattle their bones to some Disney dancing.

Next: Did you all ever see Lurch dance? He did with Wednesday!

Finally: Witches enjoy dancing and singing like these do.

Toodles....Master Crypt Keeper, Michelle

Day 11: Did You Know? Fun Facts Part 1: #Zombies

My photo from Denver, CO copyrighted

For the next few days I am presenting to you some facts that I have found around the blogsphere. I am going to start with (of course)...


Zombies may have the trademark zombie limp because their bodies are affected by the same decomposition process as any normal corpse. Additionally, rigor mortis would cause serious tissue and muscle damage at the zombie’s each step. Since zombies do not regenerate or heal, any damage is permanent. Eventually, a zombies’ top speed would be reduced to a crawl and perhaps even slow to the point where it could not move. ~Source:

Bonus : There is a law in Haiti that makes it a crime to turn someone into a zombie. Article 249 states that if someone drugs another person, buries him as though he were dead, and then digs the person up and brings him back to life, it is still considered murder. Wow, good to know!
