Halloween in Harbin

Hooray for Halloween. Hands down, my favorite social holiday. Here is the story on the 2005 Haunted Harbin Halloween.


I spent morning picking up last minute necessities to host a hole for our Halloween Golf Party. If you don't know what a Golf Party is, well, I'm not going to explain it here. Once home, I spent some time with quality horror films such as "Psycho" and "Night of the Living Dead (1968)," as well as some Simpsons' Halloween episodes. I carved a final jack-o-lantern. Then I put the costume together.

I went out this year as Baron Samedi, a figure prominent in the Voodoo religion of Haiti but maybe best known from his turn in "Live and Let Die" as a Bond baddie. (He's also in Goldeneye, one of the best video games ever. But you probably never use the Baron if you play, as he's very tall and often shoots over the heads of the other characters. I could go on, I could probably devote an entire blog to that one video game, but not here, not now.) Anyways, it wasnt too hard, and I got to use chicken feet in the costume. Not too hard to find chicken feet in China, actually, I can buy them almost immediately outside my front door.


Dan came over to do up his own paint job, he was shooting for a wizard outfit but seemed like everyone took it a different way. he got lots of "youre a demon!" or "youre that guy from that movie!" or "Darth Maul!" guesses all night, few got it right. Oh well. Still looked impressive, and once he was set we were already late, so we cabbed up to Craig's for the first hole of the night: beer.

At Craig's we met up with most of the Sunshine crew. Sadly, no one else was close to as geared up as Dan and I. Peer pressure is a wonderful tool though, so we got to work forcing others to get in the spirit. Jordan, one of our youngbucks, caved first. Wasn't sure it was possible, but, well, just take a look at the picture. Speaks for itself.


This post was going to continue on, I was going to fill it with humorous anecdotes from the evening, a few poignant observations, and the usual nonsense, but I just realized how tired and hungover I still am. So, know this: I served daiquiris, we took a break mid-golf to sit down at a restaurant and eat and terrorize Chinese people, and at the end of it all I passed out on the floor in the corner of a kitchen with a dog licking my face.

I love Halloween.

Now here are some pictures. Enjoy.

Hi The Bill, well you know we humans always start doing things on one topic and later found ourselves doing something else, this is always what happened to me. I started looking for something on webmasterworld 2 hours ago however have found my seself looking at all different topics, of course including your site Halloween in Harbin. I thought what the hell since I'm here already might as well just leave a few words. Ok I'll go on to search for webmasterworld related stuff again and hopefully it'll take me longer than last time to lose my concentration. cheers!

Hi The Bill, the content on your blog is quite interesting to me, although it is not quite what I was looking for. I was out searching for stuff on e-currency but I have gone through so many different sites that are not relate to the topic I was looking for, I did not feel like to post on any of them until now, I thought it's nice to leave something although Halloween in Harbin is not exactly e-currency related because I still kind of enjoyed it. thanks!

I was out search for some infor about e-currency profits but haven't had much luck so far, and since everyone calls blog "web 2.0", many have said that this is the next generation of internet, so I decided to try look for things in blog.com. and guess what? I still haven't had much luck, but your site got my attention although Halloween in Harbin is not a perfect much to e-currency profits. anyway, I think I'll keep going and try to understand a bit more about blogs. thanks for the reading, cheers!
