Well that was good for a morning laugh. :)

Actually she does celebrate Halloween.

They just haven’t found the bodies yet. I’ll bet being inside her head would be like being a BB in a empty rail boxcar.

Reminds me of the Satanic Panic of the 80s. Church groups (usually spearheaded by creepy “youth ministers”) went on tours all across the country speaking to schools, law enforcement, city councils, etc. informing them of the wide-spread incidences of Satanic human sacrifice and so forth. They would make up the most bizarre things imaginable and present them as fact, and people ate it up. Including, most ominously, law enforcement agencies, who in some cases actually established “Satanism units” that set out to look for evidence of Satanic cults.

If you were a teenaged fan of heavy metal, you were probably “deeply involved” in Satanism. If you were not a fan of heavy metal, you were probably COVERTLY “deeply involved” in Satanism. And god help you if anyone found out you read something by Alister Crowley, Anton LaVey, or H.P. Lovecraft. Perilous times to be an introverted geek with insatiable curiosity.

If you were a teenaged fan of heavy metal…

I was. It was a pain in the ass to own any albums that looked even remotely satanic (a highly subjective metric), and Black Sabbath was completely out of the question. The only thing that saved me was blank tapes and fellow metal heads who didn’t have screwy parents.

When is being an introverted geek not perilous? I only lived in the 1980s for about four years so I have to ask if there was a connection between that whole crusade and Tipper Gore’s war against free expression in music.

re: #3 Timmeh

Three options:

1) She’s since realized her views on Halloween were nonsense.
2) She was just saying that crap on Maher’s show because she figured the more crazy shit she spewed, the more often she’d get invited back and thus raise her profile.
3) She still believes what she said, but has since (or already had) pledged her soul to Satan.

In order of likelihood I’d rank them 2, 3, 1.

Not really. The PMRC was more or less a Temperance Movement of sorts, focused on dirty words and suggestive lyrics, not really so much on the Satanic Panic.

Having the “Parental Advisory” stamped on certain albums ended up doing her cause more harm than good.

Oh indeed, but it did make for some great political quotes from Frank Zappa.

Have you ever read The Adventures of Kavalier and Clay? The last part of the book goes pretty in depth into the 1950s comic book scare that resulted in the Comics Code Authority and generations thinking that “comics rot your brains.”

You could have done MUCH worse.

Of course she doesn’t celebrate Halloween. She’s not a witch.

I celebrate Halloween. It’s a bacchanal of sugar, fat, greed, and begging. It’s perfect! A little letting loose from the strait and narrow of bran flakes, fruit, lean meat, strict deportment, self reliance, and so forth is good for kids.

A little dipping the toe into the waters of scary is also a good thing. Call it an inoculation.

Don’t get your life mixed up with children there. How many kids do you know that are self reliant?

You know what’s scary? That weakass grown-out perm and barrettes.
