Say it isn't so

Maybe some of our readers won't be able to get here, but the folks at PervScan have a site dedicated to news of the depraved. This is not a porn site, but rather a collection of news stories with perverse themes. Of particular note is their necrophilia category. This shows how many people have unwisely indulged their dark urges outside the safety of Party with the Dead.

Pierced posers

With a name like Graveyard Girls, what's not to love? This site features photo contests with a stone cold theme, goth girls with gravestones. Brilliant!

Meet Karen Cooper

Karen Cooper is the 10-year-old girl zombie in the 1968 documentary "Night of the Living Dead." Karen, you may remember, gets bitten by the walking dead, dies, and rises again in her family's basement. Upon her re-animation, Karen eats her dad and kills her mom in a memorable scene with a garden trowel. Karen's face is certainly a recognizable icon that symbolizes the best in the horror genre. Karen was played by Kyra Schon. She has a website that discusses her involvement in the film. Kyra is now an artist that sells some NOTLD inspired memorabilia - including my favorite new gift idea, custom signed trowels. Perfect gifts when having guests for dinner!

No relation

While looking for the undead breathern, I came across this happy site. It is not a band, and it is not a place to get personal with the cold and the gray, but another Dead Man's Party. This is a very entertaining comic by Mike Akers, a Florida artist with a very dark sense of humor. Great stuff!

Crowded out

Paul Hester hanged himself in Australia over the weekend. For those who don't know, Paul was the drummer for Split Enz (1983) and Crowded House starting in 1985. (Story) Yet another Behind the Music story of a band making it big... then not. Reminds me of another Aussie rocker that reached the end of his rope, Michael Hutchence. We should have a "Party with the Dead Aussie Rockers" event to pay tribute to these folks.

Just not the same

With the launch of our website, and the global interest it has generated, it is not surprising that some folks have gotten confused by the imitator sites that can be found. This is the only true home for Party with the Dead. This should not be confused with Dead Man's Party, an Oingo Boingo cover band. While we would welcome DMP to perform at one of our events, it's just is not the same. Be sure you aren't stuck in the audience listening to 80's music when you really want to be your own star and Party With the Dead!

More partiers found!

I came across a blog that chronicles the history of a party with the dead in Nederland, CO. They have coffin races, T-shirts, and Champagne sipping at dead grandpa's shed. Read all about it.

St. Patty's Day

Being a special day for some folks, I offer the following: This site attempts to capture leprechauns on a hidden webcam (including a 360 view) and offers visitors the change to report a sighting. While "party with a leprechaun" has a nice ring to it, I think I will have my green beer with a dear friend that just happens to be sporting a fine covering of green mold (very tasty!).

You are not alone

Think partying with the dead is just a human thing? Think again! Read about these randy birds who don't need a warm body to have a good time. "The sad tale of the Dutch homosexual necrophiliac duck last week inspired enormous interest among readers all over the world..."

Welcome!

This is the official launch of the long anticipated Party With the Dead site!
