Witches Evening

Hey Bloggers, it's finally zombie day today is here. Boo! Horror, horror, abracadabra, trick or treat, the ghosts have come to town and the dead have risen, maybe, the pagans are out, the witches are here, the devils are here, the jack o lanterns are here, curses could abound. Ghouls, crows, vultures, black cats, spiders, goblins, zombies, mummies, skeletons, and demons are around. It's ritual celebration of something time. And that's such a cool photo of that devil and his pentacle above that I thought to post it in this entry for Halloween, All Hallows Eve, All Hallows Day, Day of the Dead, All Saints Eve, Night of the Witches or whatever you may want to call this what could be the coolest day of the year when everyone could be free to be who they want to be, maybe. If only every day could be Halloween. And that nonsense nyc event list, that list that is all events in New York City all the time sent out yet another event mail list for this week. And there are so many parties listed on this day for Halloween events that I thought to just repost them All.:

The less our neighbors have to complain about, the more fun we can have.

Halloween Critical Mass

Critical Mass, an international event held in more than 325 cities on six continents, occurs on the last Friday of every month when bicyclists spontaneously come together to ride the ordinarily car-clogged streets of their cities. Critical Mass focuses on the rights of bicyclists and the rights of pedestrians on their own streets. It also brings attention to the deteriorating quality of life -- starting with the toxic levels of air and noise pollution -- that cars create for cities. Critical Mass's aim is to make people take notice of cyclists as road users. Although some obstruction of normal traffic occurs, we are only seeking to raise the profile of cycling, and put cycling and transport issues on the agenda so that they will not be ignored.

This is usually a costume ride. Followed by a Halloween party ride at 8:40p on the Brooklyn side of the Williamsburg Bridge Bike Path.
