I-Mockery Going On Tour With Keith Apicary This Month!

[View Full Size Video Here]

So yeah, starting today, I've apparently "volunteered" to help out on Keith Apicary's tour around the country this month. If you're not familiar with him, just check out his other awesome videos on Youtube or his appearance on Doc Mock's Movie Mausoleum. We're going to be hitting up a variety of arcades, game stores, and plenty of random fun places along the way on this crazy road trip where you can see Keith perform all of his awesome video game songs live! Who wouldn't want to see a madman sing songs about the Neo Geo and other video game systems? If you live anywhere near one of the towns listed on the Apicarnage tour, please come out to show your support. Come say hey and I'll give you some I-Mockery and Abobo's Big Adventure freebies too!

And don't worry... we have plenty of Halloween stuff ready to go up on I-Mockery while I'm out of town until later this September. I wouldn't leave you guys hangin' without your Two Months of Halloween fix! Only difference now is I'll also be posting updates from the tour on here as well. Double your pleasure, double your fun. So that's the big surprise announcement and I hope to see some of you on the road!



Dig A Grave! I-Mockery’s 2011 Halloween Season Has Begun!

Greetings, ghouls 'n goblins! Welcome to I-Mockery's 2011 Halloween season!

Who here is ready for the one time of the year when rat-eating lizard men and robotic cephalopods puking up brain matter through a meat grinder-like orifice while one-eyed vampire zombies smile approvingly are part of the every day norm? I sure am! This can mean only one thing... it's time to get ready for Halloween!

As you should already know by now, September 1st marks the beginning of I-Mockery's annual "Two Months of Halloween" celebration. Everything you see on this site between now and October 31st will be filled with monsters, horror movies, candy and any other Halloween-related things I can get my grubby hands on, so whether you're ready or not, it's time to start getting into the spirit of the season. This is the best time of the year and there's no way we're going to celebrate Halloween for a mere month. Historically speaking, September has always been that long transitional month where we wait for the last remnants of summer to fade away and for fall to take over so the ghosts 'n goblins can finally come out to drain our blood whilst we sleep. Haha, I said "whilst"... Halloween sure brings out the fancypants in me. Pardon me while I go put on my top hat and meet some other fine gents at the high society social club to discuss the moral decay of society at the hands of many a rapscallion.

Anyway, there's simply no better time of year to be hanging out here on I-Mockery to discuss all things Halloween with us. We're a big Halloween family and you're all a part of it, so put your differences aside, scarf down some mellowcreme pumpkins 'til you're ready to puke, and enjoy the ride.

We always pride ourselves on going crazier over this holiday than any other site ever has, so we've got all sorts o' spine-tingling things planned for the 2011 Halloween season here on I-Mockery. We even have a brand new Halloween pixel poster coming out this month that will make a perfect addition to your haunted house decor. Of course, you can count on seeing coverage of crazy old Halloween movies, pictorial tours of haunted attractions, oddball horror-themed novelties, huge trick-or-treat candy reviews and much more over the next two months. You can also expect a special announcement that I'll be making in the next couple o' days. That being said, if any of you have suggestions for Halloweeny things you'd like to see us cover this season, please let us know here in the blog thread or shoot us an email. It doesn't matter if it's a Halloween event taking place in your area, a horror movie, an independent seasonal costume shop, some new candy, or some completely bizarro new Halloween novelty... we wanna see and hear all about it, so please get in touch!

To those of you who aren't well acquainted with our annual Halloween celebration here on I-Mockery, I recommend you check out some of our main Halloween attractions. And hell, even if you've been with us for years, it wouldn't hurt to look back over all that old stuff to help get in the spirit o' things.

-I-Mockery's Halloween Collection: Here you'll find quick 'n easy access to most of our Halloween material from the past. Extremely in-depth horror movie and candy reviews, product reviews, and of course the boppin' Halloween adventures of Count Pop himself along with other oddities.

-The Halloween Grab Bag: Much like our "Shorts" section, this is a place where you'll find our smaller Halloween articles, but often covering some of the weirdest stuff we've ever stumbled upon.

-The Greatest Horror Movie Moments: Another favorite is our ongoing quest to document some of the finest moments in horror movies. Sometimes they're moments you're well aware of, other times, it's stuff you probably never knew existed. Either way, if you're looking for some horror movies to check out this season, this is a great place to start.

-Trick-Or-Treat Adventure: Our largest Flash game to date... and it's all about Halloween. If you're a fan of classic adventure games such as Monkey Island and Space Quest, you'll feel right at home with this one as you go on an adventure to build a Halloween costume and then collect enough candies before you battle the ultimate evil! It even auto-saves your progress as you go play, so you don't have to beat the game all in one sitting.

-Haunted House Candy Hunt: In this Halloween flash game we pay tribute to the games of the Atari 2600 by creating an all new one in the same style. You must guide two buddies (who just so happen to be from a galaxy far, far away) through all the treacherous rooms of a spooky haunted house as they hold hands. Should you reach the end of the game, you'll have a showdown with the ultimate candy hoarder - The Grim Reaper himself! I've also heard from a reliable source (ie: myself) that there's a secret level select hidden somewhere in the game. But you don't need that anyway, right? Cheater!

-MonsterTime: With our most recent Halloween flash game, we pay tribute to the arcade classic BurgerTime. Only difference is, instead of building burgers, you're building classic monsters to save you from the modern slasher monsters who are in hot pursuit of you, Doc Mock!

-Doc Mock's Movie Mausoleum: Doc Mock, I-Mockery's official horror host, is currently looking for a new home to shoot his show in, but we have over 30 archived episodes already after just one year! If you're looking for a good cheesy b-movie flick, check out some of the Doc's episodes, including the 2009 Halloween specials! Doc is planning on hitting up Universal Studios' Halloween Horror Nights once again this year, so expect coverage of that too!

In addition to a ton of new feature articles, you can still expect our regular site updates to the Blog (don't forget the archived Halloween blog entries from years past) and Weeklies section (yes, they're back) this season. We've also got some great Halloween contests in store for you to participate in as well. I-Mockery's big 2011 Halloween season has finally begun and I hope you guys will stick around the entire time to join in all the fun!
