I always appreciate any joke about LA that goes beyond the easy Hollywood punchline. Like this one, during tonight’s repeat of 30 Rock:
Oh, Liz. You’re a long way from Burbank.
L.A., how was your Halloween? I went to the 4th annual Halloween party held by one of my writer’s group friends. We had amazing dj music courtesy of the big outdoor Mexican wedding next door. And we had an always enjoyable theatrical bent to many of the costumes. These included:
–Maleficent from “Sleeping Beauty”
–The Cure’s Robert Smith as a goth zombie, or “Gombie.” I didn’t realize how much he looks like Edward Scissorhands.
–A pink Crayola crayon
–A Renaissance Vampirella
–A Killer Bee
–The Bride of Frankenstein
–A crazed Laker fan (aren’t they all?)
Surprisingly, we had no “Jersey Shore” cast members, and no politicians. But we had some topical characters, including a Chilean miner and a couple from “Dancing With the Stars,” albeit with a fishnet twist. And, perhaps appropriately, our costume contest winner was a tv character: Tina Fey/Liz Lemon from “30 Rock,” including rectangular glasses, clipboard, and bag of Sabor de Soledad Mexican cheese puffs.
So, how about you? Any standout costumes at your Halloween wardrobe (mal-)functions?
