The worst costume I ever wore was a ghost made out of a sheet – every time I took a step I tripped over the front of the sheet, pulled the eye holes down to my mouth and stumbled around blind.

What’s your costume “horror” story?

Hello October!

October has always been a special month around here. I guess that should have been expected when that theatre nerd wound up with that gothy freak and they ran away to grow up together. So we thought we’d kick the month off with an old favorite, Dialed In: Ancient Evil

“The fact of storytelling hints at a fundamental human unease, hints at human imperfection. Where there is perfection there is no story to tell.”

WALTHER

While I’ve lived in WNY for almost a decade, I was born in Arizona and spent a good deal of my childhood in Nevada. I’ve chased lizards, rode horses through sagebrush, been bowled-over by more than one tumbleweed and my father wore cowboy boots.

Walther is a character that hangs out in my head. He’s the sum of a motley lineup of hard-working, ornery men that have passed through my life.

He’s the kind of guy who works through a problem with rough, calloused hands and grit. He’s as weathered and worn as a herdsman’s saddle.

His job is to pop up and let me know when something smells like bullshit – he always does it in a western drawl and occasionally with a wink and a nod.

“There is in souls a sympathy with sounds:
And as the mind is pitch’d the ear is pleased
With melting airs, or martial, brisk or grave;
Some chord in unison with what we hear
Is touch’d within us, and the heart replies.”

William Cowper
