I never really celebrated Halloween growing up. I KNOW, it’s crazy, but I grew up in Puerto Rico, OK? But then I moved to NYC, where Halloween is totally a big deal. And why shouldn’t it be? Halloween means candy and costumes and DANCE PARTIES GALORE. Since I love any excuse to shake it anywhere and everywhere, here’s a perfect playlist for all of your (our) dance-party moments, whether you’re channeling Wednesday Addams at a party or Beyonce while in the comfort and privacy of your own bedroom. Guaranteed to make even the most serious ghouls drop the gloom and doom and have a ball.
HEY, ROOKIES! Next month’s theme is LOST AND FOUND. We’re looking for writing, illustration, photography, video, collage, etc., on things we have lost and times we’ve been found; on being independent vs. asking for help; on solitude, pros and cons; shyness and the conquering of same; misanthropy and empathy and love and how they can coexist. On everything that makes us feel less alone in this world. Here is where to send your stuff. Thank you! ♥♥♥
