Ferguson – Dennis Cemetery, Leesville, Louisiana

Hello! Come take a small walk with me through the old Leesville Cemetery. This very vast but quiet cemetery sits on about 6 acres of land and is located off LA HWY 8 in Leesville, Louisiana. The original name for the cemetery is “Ferguson – Dennis Cemetery” but local residents refer to it as the Leesville Cemetery. I was reading through what small historical information I could find about it here but there wasn’t too much out there. I did come […]

Hollywood Community Cemetery: Orange, Texas

I’m so blessed that I live Louisiana which is full of rich history and a cemetery explorers dream. But my next adventure took me to Orange, Texas to a very small place full of history and sadness called the Hollywood Community Cemetery.       Hollywood Cemetery lies on a very small portion of land surrounded by a vacant buildings and a few houses. The cemetery is old and the grass is getting high in some areas, but that is […]

Halloween Party Music

I searched and gathered some great Halloween themed tracks from the 1950’s and 60’s. Some obscure, some are not. They will make your toes tap, your hips sway, and your shoulders shimmy. Rest assured, there’s no Monster Mash type songs here. Happy listening Please note: I do not own the rights to any of these songs. This is strictly a fan based collection. Track listing: Screamin’ Jay Hawkins – “Little Demon” (1956) 0-2:23 Round Robin – “I’m The Wolfman” (1965) […]

Type O Negative Black No. 1

Today could be Christmas and everyone around you could be singing songs of delight and happiness while opening brightly wrapped presents but then suddenly, your goth cousin breaks out their Type O Negative cassette and regardless of where you are at, you instantly shift into Halloween mode. There is no escaping the trance that Peter Steele’s voice puts you in.  There is just no escaping the sound of Type O Negative. This song reminds me of the many heavy metal […]

Spellbound – Siouxsie and the Banshees

As I watched the episode in the 4th season of True Blood come to an end, there was a sudden burst of music and a reminder that the name of the episode was Spellbound and now here, over my speakers, was the beautiful voice of Siouxsie Sioux wailing and mesmerizing as usual. Anyone that hears this song has to be instantly drawn into another world, whether it’s a dark mysterious land where you are sitting under the stars by a […]

Bloodletting (The Vampire Song)

By the time this cassette reached my grungy little fingers, it had already made its way around the airwaves. Joey was a big hit and an amazing song, but that is not what captured my attention. A very close friends amazing Mother had the cassette in her car, she played it, and I could not shake Johnette Napolitano’s vocals or raspy storytelling from my mind. I was late to the Concrete Blonde fan club, but it didn’t matter, it was […]

A dark dance club night featuring Bauhaus

Depending on how you spent your years growing up, this song may mean absolutely nothing to you. But for some, such as myself and my fellow author Bryan, this song meant everything. This song meant is was time to creep on the dance floor and walk slowly to the ever growing population of humans dressed in all black. This song meant it was time to let everything go and let your arms flow around you like you had just grown […]
