Then came digital music. When I got my first iPod, the first thing I had to figure was how to use it for Halloween. I gather up all the songs I knew from the older recordings and hunted the internet for more. Then sound effects! There were sound effect records at the library! I recorded that and added it in. Every year I would find another song or five to add. Real old songs (the Boogie Man) and recent songs as they appeared (Ghostbusters, Nightmare before Christmas). The songs go from Bing Crosby to Frank Zappa. I got a iPod speaker, I load it up and it plays for hours without me touching it! It's great. No one really hears it all but me. And I let it play as I slowly dismantle the man every Halloween evening. It's the last thing I disconnect. And only then is Halloween over.
