God Speed Chris

I can still remember clearly the first time I heard his voice. I would lay around listening to the radio, trying to catch his name or the name of the band he was frontman for. I would always hear parts of the song… but never enough to make a purchase in the 5 music stores I went to. I would try to sing words from the song, always to a very confused music merchant. Finally, a person at Virgin records had heard it too. They placed the elusive CD in my hand and I was off. I popped that thing into my car and turned it up so loud the walls vibrated and shuddered. The voice was haunting, dark, melancholy. It was deep like the vocals that have attracted my attention since I was a small child. I played that CD endlessly until people refused to ride in my car. I can laugh at that now. That day Chris became my favorite singer. He had the voice of a dark angel. The kind of tone that hits you inside the chest and gives you that twitchy pain behind your eyes. The tone you feel into your very soul.

I’m a firm believer that some people are just not meant for this world. They try so hard to conform and live amongst us. But their souls are always restless. No amount of love or money or beauty or fame can tame them and their search for that “something” that will keep them steady and quiet their soul…it just never comes. Some people will say he was selfish. Some people will say he abused drugs or alcohol. Others will discuss what was in his mind; depression, mental illness, bi-polar, whatever… as if they knew him well both inside and out. The simple fact is no one did. We only knew his music.

What I say? I pray that God wraps loving arms around his family and friends. I pray Chris has finally found his inner peace and is free.  God Speed Brother.

Halloween 2015

Posted in Uncategorized on October 4, 2016 by anuvuestudio

Well…after 2014 and the brown tent I decided to find a big black tent. If I have to fit in a tent…it better be black. It is after all Halloween and there are certain rules to play by.

Halloween 2014

Posted in Uncategorized on October 4, 2016 by anuvuestudio

I don’t want anyone to think I’ve ended my love affair with Halloween. No, you’ll still find me as big a kid as ever. I’ve just toned it down quite a bit. I find (as I age) I’m not quite as coordinated… and when I almost lost an eye to a rebar robot arm…Mike started yelling.  I realized I’d better take care of myself first and then the beloved day. Mike said whatever I can fit inside a tent, I can do. Well…you know me. I can creep out a bit sideways. 😉

I haven’t posted in quite a long time. I’ve been very busy these last couple of years but I did manage to snap a few pics to immortalize my favor day. 2014 was the first year of “fitting inside the tent”. I create Carnevil. Moo HOO HA















Oh Holy Night

Surf City News for Oct 31

Posted in Uncategorized on November 1, 2013 by anuvuestudio

A very nice lady (Marcie) from Surf City News came out and did this feature on our Halloween Scene. I’m the odd one in the middle 😉

I eluded to this being the final “Biggie” as I am covered in bruises and almost lost an eye this year. That tetanus shot wasn’t great either… but the look on the Doctors face was priceless.

I would not have traded these last 18 years for anything. We’ve tried our best to spread magic to all the wonderful trick-or-treators and hopefully made an impression on one of them to carry on the torch (or crown). I will always favor Halloween over any holiday. I will always celebrate with some madness that evolves from my head. But I’ll do it in a style that’s safe to my body parts. I may try to trick or treat next year. Hey, and maybe by golf cart!

Moving right along…

Cindy, Julie and Kathy are following from far away planets so I’m doing my best to keep up.


This is a member of the H31 Planet Inspection Team. I had to consume allot of pollo bowls to complete the chest plates.

Harry and George are now completed and waiting on their lights.
