Visit The Past You’ve Never Seen (

I take original images from the early 1900’s, make new monsters and environments and superimpose the photos to look like the photos are still from that era. I’ve recently started making mini graveyards and terrariums that I call terrorariums and cemetariums.

Bat’s Day 2018

batsdaycastlepic2018Celebrating 20 Years of Spooky at the Park!

When we heard this would be the last Bat’s Day Weekend, we knew we had to go and show our support!
(Good news – the annual meet up will continue on, just not the entire weekend of events – whew!)

This Bat’s Day was full of friends, fun, corsets, parasols, meet ups, new friends and of course, many rides on the Haunted Mansion.

Welcome to The Spoodoir

About the blog and author.

This is a day of endings and beginnings. If you found this site because of my work for the Geyser of Awesome, then you already know about its ending and I humbly thank you for following me over here for the start of something new. Welcome!

If you’re here because you know me personally or follow me on InstagramFacebook, or Tumblr, thank you! It means a great deal to me that you’re joining me on this new endeavor.

If you have no idea what I just referred to, allow me to quickly fill you in: Until about 2 weeks ago, I’ve spent nearly every day of the last 7.5 years combing the Internets for all manner of art, pop culture, science, style, design, technology, food, travel, nature, and human interest-related things I deemed “geyserworthy” and then wrote about for a blog called the Geyser of Awesome. After learning that the Geyser was shutting down I considered how strange it would be to no longer do something that has long been such an essential part of my day. That’s when it dawned on me that there was no need to stop; I could simply do it for myself and, with any luck, some of my existing audience would follow me over here and onward we would go.

So here were are at The Spoodoir. Welcome and thank you for joining me!
