Blow My Mindsday: Special Halloween Edition – October 31, 2012

Each Wednesday, I post some of my favorite can’t-miss links, images, and otherwise mindblowing goodies from across the web.

Designer and artist Michael Pippo created a series of posters for everyone’s favorite Halloween special, It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. Learn more at designworklife. Also, the show is on tonight at 8:00p EST on your local ABC channel. Watch it.

Suzie the Foodie came up with this fun recipe for Ghostbusters-inspired Ectoplasm popcorn.

The Etsy blog provides a short history and handmade overview of these wonderfully scary “Plague Masks” from the 17th and 18th centuries.

During my senior year of high school, I was really into these post-Ramones/Cramps/Misfits punk rock bands that took the whole 50s teenager/leather jacket/B-movie/hot rod/drive-in aesthetic to the max. Every Halloween, I still listen to some of their more thematic songs, and they still hit the spot.
