Have a Safe Weekend

Because.

Because even a pandemic is a little better when narrated by Vincent Price.

For the folks south of Dallas: by the time you read this, the TROTS (Triffid Ranch On Tour Secretly) tour to scenic Austin begins, setting up for Nosferatu Festival on Saturday and Sunday nights. If you can make it, I’ll see you there.

The Leap Day gallery open house is Saturday. If you wonder how such a thing could be possible, consider that I remember seeing a toy store in downtown Lansing, Michigan with a stack of these in the front window when I was two, and THAT was the moment where the timeline split and all of my other realities involved my becoming a football star and Catholic priest. Selah.

And for this weekend, a little round from one of the best blues musicians Dallas has ever produced. Not familiar with the one and only Cricket Taylor? Well, that needs to be rectified.

By the time you see this, I’ll be setting up my booth at the Arlington Convention Center for the spring NARBC reptile and amphibian show (now with carnivorous plants to go with the chameleons, axolotls, and various invertebrates), and this song makes a handy theme. Contrary to popular opinion and terrestrial radio station “classic rock” programming directors, music in the 1980s wasn’t “all Phil Collins, all the time,” even if it sometimes seemed that way for those of us who had to live through it.

If you haven’t made plans for next weekend’s NARBC reptile and amphibian show at the Arlington Convention Center, look into buying tickets: the Triffid Ranch makes its first appearance in nearly seven years. In the interim, it’s time to get ready: a week from right now, I hope to have the booth already set up and ready to go.

Getting the gallery ready for tomorrow’s Chinese New Year gallery open house, finishing up the latest newsletter, and getting started with preparations for the big NARBC reptile show in Arlington on Valentine’s Day weekend…to quote Matt Howarth, it may stop, but it never ends.

One week to the Chinese New Year gallery open house, and everything is getting in order. Before then, music.

Because as bad as January can get, we’re still a ways off from purple mohawks and bondage pants…so far.

New year, new decade, and now new show: this weekend, the Triffid Ranch sets up in Grapevine, Texas for the first Repticon Dallas show of the year. See you there.

And the year

Have a Great Weekend

The last weekend of the year, the last weekend of the Twenty-teens, 40 years since this song came out, and Caroline’s and my 17th wedding anniversary. Let the music commence.

Well, the last Nightmare Weekend Before Christmas open house for 2019 is Saturday starting at 6:00 pm, so it’s time for that one song that best sums up the reason for the season. Sadly, we’ll never get an updated live version, mostly due to guitarist Colin Grigson’s untimely jenkem overdose, but at least we have the memories.

While the third Nightmare Weekend Before Christmas gallery open house runs this Saturday, take into account that one of the best themes for Dallas in August came out 35 years ago:

Have a Great Weekend

For Paul Mears, who has had to put up with me for 40 years as of tomorrow and hasn’t buried me in an unmarked grave…yet.

Due to a death in the family, this Saturday’s Nightmare Weekend Before Christmas has been cancelled, but expect a full return to form on Saturday, December 7. If you’re really nice, I might even sing for the occasion:

Once more for the year, the Triffid Ranch is on the road: once again, it’s to Austin for the Blood Over Texas Horror For the Holidays show, now spread out over Saturday AND Sunday. For the Dallas folks, don’t worry: a couple of days of recuperation, and then the Nightmare Weekends Before Christmas gallery open houses start on November 30. Sleep? What’s that?

Have a Great Weekend

Because things are going to get interesting next weekend:

Have a Great Weekend

Heading out to the Deep Ellum Creative Market on November 9 and 10, and anyone in the vicinity is welcome to attend. For obvious reasons, this will be the last outdoor show of the year, and the second-to last external before we return to the gallery on November 30 for the first of this year’s Nightmare Weekends Before Christmas. Let’s enjoy the weather while it lasts.
