Words and draws by Russ
I love the visual of a 10-year-old boy laying the in dark with headphones scaring the bejeezus out of himself on purpose!
I had a similar album. Lots of cool sounds on one side and one long boring scary thing on the other. I wasn't allowed anywhere but the basement with it. It was like a banishment to me.
I wonder if this was the album that my Mom used to scare the fear of the dark out of me when I was around 9 or 10...I wonder how many images that album conjured for you that has made its way into your work..? Such a cool memory..!
Agreeing with Vickie. That is my favorite part of this toon. The image of Boy-Toon shivering under the oversized headphones and loving it.Hey, I still have a couple of those CDs. -Cin
Nothing better than vinyl and scary noises :o)
I used to have a 45 that had sounds from the Haunted Mansion at Walt Disney World.
I think I would like the spooky house sounds!
I loved those albums!Are there Killer Kiwi lurking? I did not have internet most of the time here in Korea, sucks when I can't get my fix of net...
I liked this one so much! The only difference between our experiences was that one of my brothers had the "scary sounds" Lp, and that when I listened to music with the earphones, I had to sit on the stairs (with all the animals, siblings and their friemds running up and down, and stepping over me)!Great times!(sigh: I was--and remain--such a dork)
