Defenestration: October 2007

Oct 20th, 2007 | By | Category: Editorials

Welcome to the October 2007 issue of Defenestration!

The October editorials are always the most fun to write, because Halloween is a mere week or so away, and everyone enjoys talking about it. Especially me, because then I don’t need to strain myself writing anything terribly clever. 

This year, Genevieve is going as a professional blogger with a poor outlook on life and a cynical disposition towards all humanity. It’s a little esoteric, but as soon as she showed Eileen and me the costume she had whipped up, we knew immediately what she was. 

Eileen, on the other hand, doesn’t take as much time to assemble her costume. According to her, the only viable costume-making material in her house is a roll of tinfoil and some rubber bands. I shudder to imagine what kind of robotic horror she’ll transform herself into, but I can guarantee that, halfway through our habitual trick-or-treating session, she’ll have more candy than the entire Defenestration staff put together and poor circulation in her limbs.

I’m going as a stripper-turned-respectable-woman’s wedding night linens. It’s a white sheet. No one gets it though and thinks I’m going as the worst cliché in Halloween history.

Other than that, Bigfoot’s going as the Loch Ness Monster, Haratron’s going as an ATM, and the editing monkeys are going as every character from the Venture Bros. cartoon. It’s going to be one hell of a Halloween.

That being said, check out our latest issue. You know the drill. Here there be poetry (three poets!), artwork (times two!), and prose (an even five!). Also, columns and stuff.

Happy Halloween!
