A couple of weeks ago, I stopped to gaze into the window of Magnolia Bakery in midtown while en route to the NBC Studios to attend a taping of that week’s Saturday Night Live (Host: Rami Malek). What a delight it was to see this tiered Halloween-themed cake right up front. So scary cute! Whatever your plans (or lack thereof ), have a safe and enjoyable Halloween!
Hey what’s up. Welcome to the first Video Clip of the Week for Fall, 2015, courtesy of the Canadian band, Dilly Dally! Aurally, Dilly Dally’s “Purple Rage” sounds like Maria McKee possessed by the spirit of Kathleen Hanna fronting The Pixies. What that means is that your ears are in for a blast of grunge-melodicism that is, in a word, irresistible. In the video, Dilly Dally lead vocalist, Katie Monks plays the challenging role of the embodiment of Rage, a popular and underrated emotion which takes the form of a Creature from the Purple Lagoon, or something. Purple Rage then wanders from the marshlands into the streets of downtown Toronto for a story line that is both surreal and totally familiar simultaneously. It is a lot of fun to watch, and the song is just fantastic!
“Purple Rage” is the second single from the band’s hotly anticipated debut album, Sore, due out October 9th, 2015 on Partisan Records. Enjoy!
Everyone I know has a few hilarious photos of them laying around from a time when they got all dressed up like a freak for a Halloween party they can’t even remember attending. Guilty as charged! And you know what would be good to own for tacking up that photo of your likeness dressed as Han Solo or Lady Gaga or something really horrifying…like Snookie from The Jersey Shore? How about a magnetic frame decorated with the faces of crazy Monsters? I know I would like to own something like that!
