This Is Halloween

I finally made it to LACMA's Tim Burton exhibit, which was all the awesome that I was expecting. No one is allowed to take a camera into the exhibit, but people are permitted to take a photo of the entrance, which is suitably twisted.

I am a huge Tim Burton fan, although I acknowledge that his work has been uneven (Planet of the Apes, anyone?). But in the spirit of Halloween, I thought I'd share some Tim Burton love.

First of all, Cakewrecks recently highlighted Tim Burton themed cakes that you just have to see to believe.

Secondly, I stumbled upon the original version of The Nightmare Before Christmas poem, narrated by Christopher Lee, and here for you to enjoy:



Finally, here's a sneak peek at Tim Burton's Dark Shadows, which releases next year. (Yes, I have ridiculously high expectations.)



Bonus video: And because it's Halloween, I have to include Neil Gaiman's (why isn't Tim Burton directing The Graveyard Book?) pitch for All Hallow's Read.



Happy Halloween!
