October has once again come to a close. The days have become frightfully short—the sun barely even stops by anymore—the trees are busy shrugging off their Technicolor coats, and just as Mr. C says, memories of our departed loved ones come back abruptly, and sometimes, painfully. Alas, I welcome November and bid a fond farewell to another eerie October. Sadly, this means I must also part ways with my beloved October Edition. Don’t fret; you can always find this year’s costume archived along with any entry from October. Forevermore.
Though the old and dusty cloth-bound tome is gone, I’ve decided to make the drop caps a more permanent fixture, however, they will be set in the typeface Century to better mesh with the usual site design. I grew quite fond of having them around last month; they not only round out the posts a bit more, but add a nice bit of visual oomph. I will need to clean up a handful of older posts to work with them, but the majority of the site is already good to go (you may need to clear your cache).
This Saturday I am off to Austin, TX for the last An Event Apart of the year. I hope to squeeze in a quick showing of either Cabinet of Dr. Caligari with live orchestra accompaniment at the Alamo Drafthouse (the amazing theater where we are also holding AEA) or the original Halloween at the Alamo Village. It honestly think it will be a bit weird to be in Austin and not see hundreds of people swarming the streets like there are during SXSW. I’m really looking forward to not only the fun times we always have at AEA, but also the chance to actually see more of Austin than the convention center. After all, I still need to see those bats.
