Maybe I will win one at the fright fest, I am leaving in two hours for it. I will be a guest reader for two nights doing my Primmsylvania Prose books, wich I have also donated a couple for the fright fest. Hope to see and meet you there. Per normal, your work is gorgeous! The first one with the spider is my favorite too. Scott, I am awestruck again by the level of detail that you create.
I cant believe that you made 23 of these, Im still struggling to bang out one for a scarecrow head. I had a notice from UPS on Monday of a failed package delivery attempt Well, since I am at work all day, I signed for them to just leave it on Tuesday and stuck the slip back on my front door. I got home from work Dejected I went in the house, waited I decided to go ahead and get my work out in since it didn't look like the package was coming. An hour into my work out I hear the doorbell ring I run downstairs, covered with sweat, and I fling open the door just in time to see the UPS guy putting the package down.
I can honestly say, I now know what all the fuss over Stolloween is about.
Only time will tell…. Time to get geared up for spooks and candy and all things horrific and gruesome. Who am I kidding? But October holds a special place in our cold blackened hearts as how it is synonymous with our favorite holiday. I have decided to share with you a list, in no particular order, of my mandatory watches for October. These are what get me in the Halloween mood as I watch them throughout the month, getting geared up for the 31st. I highly recommend all of these to the Nth Degree. Before you bombard me with hate emails,nasty comments or spring-loaded axes sent via UPS to my humble shack here in the swamplands for not including your favorite films or whatnot, please understand that this is MY personal viewing list.
Night of the Demons. And while it spawned a few sequels and a remake a few years back, you can stick with this and oh so satisfied. A heavy metal icon returns from the dead through a possessed record to help a hapless outcast get revenge on his bullies. But when things go too far, can Eddie stop the murderous spirit of rock? Anyone who has seen this anthology film can agree that this film kind of embodies everything most people love about Halloween.
This adaptation of the Ray Bradbury book takes you through the history of Halloween through the eyes of 4 kids trying to save the soul of their sick friend. I also found a list of what all the codes given in the instructions mean, complete with a color coding guide! Given all the hanging parts, it might be better to take the time to adapt this into a cloth costume. When you factor in what a spilled drink can do to a paper costume, it suddenly becomes clear why this style fell out of fashion.
RavensBlight has printable masquerade gear in addition to papercraft monster masks and various costume accessories. I found the post discussing how to make a simple dress out of an old pillow case to be particularly creative. Mom vs the Boys shows how to make a shirt into a ninja mask, while Celebrating Halloween has ideas for both Halloween costumes and makeup. I Love Halloween has some skull and skeleton-themed nail art and LittleThings has festive ways to accent your eyes along with countless other Halloween makeup tips. Clown makeup is surprisingly complicated. Thankfully making your own is much easier.
It can also be used to create makeup for other Halloween characters!
Just be sure to test a small amount of any makeup you plan on using on your arm the day before you do the full application in order to test for allergic reactions. Popular Mechanics has plenty of makeup tips for you to peruse including…making a fake nose out of Silly Putty? A little investigation shows this idea is more widespread than one might think. Personally, I prefer the monster costume and makeup guide from their October issue even though it lacks Silly Putty. Speaking of scouts, the October issue of Scouting has instructions on making various costumes and masks. Creating Halloween Crafts by Dana Meachen Rau shows how to make easy costumes from sweat clothes, along with some headband ideas and makeup advice.
I first learned about crow hunting while looking up information about creating crow caws for an upcoming article about making spooky sound effects. Primmsylvania Prose 2 - Kindle edition by Kurtis Primm.

Therefore desires and fear or greed and hatred are the great motive forces of the human heart. View all 5 comments. Sep 20, Walter rated it liked it. This is a better book of translations and more useful to read than the Analects, but its author's opinions - while ostensibly offered to demonstrate the wide range of potential interpretations of these texts - is often a bit intrusive or extraneous.

I have enjoyed the book and yet I am glad that the experience of it is over, as it contained many great insights of Confucian wisdom with significantly less repetition than, say, the Analects though still with an appreciable amount , and also with far more context, and yet there was something indescribable missing for me.
There is much gold to be mined here, but, truth be told, I am happy to leave it for a time and come back to it as the going is challenging. For ardent Confucianists this is a paradise, for mere enthusiasts perhaps more of a chore.
Watson aka umberto rated it really liked it Shelves: We still need to learn something from this great sage who was born 2, years ago. Please allow me to verify from the Internet since I heard from a few TV reports on the event in China, some mentioned 2, therefore we understand why China has long been great as regards her history, culture, scholars, etc. They can tell you when Confucius was born, how come? Aug 19, Greg rated it it was amazing. This is a gracefully written, wonderful introduction to some of the ideas of classic Chinese thought.
It features a substantial portion of selected verses from the Analects, the collection of saying of, and stories about, Confucius compiled a couple of centuries after his death, as well as some of the insights of one of his most famous later disciples -- Mencius, and throughout insightful, helpful, and enjoyable commentary by Lin Yutang.

In fact, it was Lin Yutang's writings that led me to purchase an excellent course on the Analects from the Teaching Company's Great Courses lectures and to also begin to read the full Analects with commentary selected from more than two thousand years of scholars. Recommended for all looking for an intelligent, but approachable, introduction to the accessible writings of the Chinese masters. Dec 15, Miron rated it really liked it.
This is good for an introduction to the topic, or for a better understanding for those who may have no idea at all. The history of the life of Confucius was probably the most enjoyable section, as it cut out some of the unnecessary opinions of the author some of which prompt a questioning of his own translation. The rest of the book was a bit redundant and disorganized at times. While this book provides a good start, I am sure there are better sources available. Apr 18, Tim Burrington rated it liked it. I read this to get a better understanding beyond the jokes and short sayings attributed to Confucius that you learn as a child.
While this book did give me a bit more of that understanding it does suffer from some unavoidable problems with the age of the underlying text.
After a leader or two in power destroyed writings attributed to him, what we are left with are reconstructions of things written on bamboo stalks.

With that particular medium being fairly expensive at the time, words became expensive to store and thus what he wrote may have been truncated or rewritten to save space.
The text that is left covers a wide arrange of things from how to run a government down to how individuals behave. Substance, according to Spinoza, exists in itself and is conceived through itself Ethics , I, def. Everything in the universe is necessary, and there is no free will, except in as far as Spinoza is in favor of calling someone free who is led by reason Ethics , I, prop. Each human mind is a limited aspect of the divine intellect. On this view which has its antecedent in Stoicism the human task is to move towards the greatest possible rational control of human life.
Leibniz was, like Descartes, not primarily an ethicist. The rationalists were not denying the centrality of God in human moral life, but their emphasis was on the access we have through the light of reason rather than through sacred text or ecclesiastical authority.
After Leibniz there was in Germany a long-running battle between the rationalists and the pietists, who tried to remain true to the goals of the Lutheran Reformation. Examples of the two schools are Christian Wolff — and Christian August Crusius —75 , and we can understand Immanuel Kant — , like his teacher Martin Knutzen —51 , as trying to mediate between the two. Wolff was a very successful popularizer of the thought of Leibniz, but fuller in his ethical system.
He took from Leibniz the principle that we will always select what pleases us most, and the principle that pleasure is the apprehension of perfection, so that the amount of pleasure we feel is proportional to the amount of perfection we intuit New Essays on Human Understanding , XXI, He thought we are obligated to do what will make us and our condition, or that of others, more perfect, and this is the law of nature that would be binding on us even if per impossible God did not exist. He saw no problem about the connection between virtue and happiness, since both of them result directly from our perfection, and no problem about the connection between virtue and duty, since a duty is simply an act in accordance with law, which prescribes the pursuit of perfection.
His views were offensive to the pietists, because he claimed that Confucius already knew by reason all that mattered about morality, even though he did not know anything about Christ. Crusius by contrast accepted Scotus's double theory of motivation, and held that there are actions that we ought to do regardless of any ends we have, even the end of our own perfection and happiness. It is plausible to see here the origin of Kant's categorical imperative.
His idea was that we have within us this separate capacity to recognize divine command and to be drawn towards it out of a sense of dependence on the God who prescribes the command to us, and will punish us if we disobey though our motive should not be to avoid punishment Ibid.
