Retrocrush's Worst Halloween Costumes of All Time. Made of genuine plastic, for your budding celebrity spree killer.:
Your little tyro's well on his way to the rubber room thanks to these creepy costumes, all lovingly assembled for your perusal pleasure. Caution: may cause compulsive flinching.
Yep, They Want To Charge More:
The Register brings us a story of the music industry and capitalism at work: Not making enough? Raise prices on the format that costs the least to bring to market! Unless you profit less when you do that - which will likely be the case when they try to double (or more) the price of a downloaded song.
The McCartney Version:
Paul McCartney considers launching a fully-animated film, and in doing so may pick up the ball where the Disney corporation has dropped it. Via Reuters.
All the better to pick up where they left off. The Pixies hit the tour stage, as told by MTV.com.
