Empty Space Orchestra Halloween Video and Costume Rundown 

Empty Space Orchestra video and a list of my favorite costumes from this weekend's festivities.

Things were relatively quiet out on the town on Halloween night, as it seems many a ghost, goblin and Michael Jacksons were still at home, fixated by the severe throttling the Ducks were giving USC.

But then things picked up by 9 or so and it seemed that the McMenamins Old St. Francis School campus was the epicenter of the Halloween tomfoolery. This seems to be the case with most major party holidays. They should change their name to McMenamins Old St. Francis School and Hall of Seasonal Celebration. Or not.

Here's some video of Empty Space Orchestra getting totally spooky in the McMenamins theater, complete with a freaky video projection serving as the backdrop.

With Halloween falling on a weekend this year, it seemed that people had extra time to devote to their costumes. In no particular order of awesomeness, here's a rundown of some of my favorite costumes from Saturday night.

Swine Flu: I saw four different renditions of this topical costume, three of which used a pig snout, and one that featured an entire pig costume.

Bleacher Preacher: Complete with one-piece Spandex suit, wig and John 3:16 sign.

Mustaches: Halloween is a great excuse to grow a 'stache, as evidenced by a slew of cowboys, cops and other characters who incorporated a hairy upper lip into their costumes.

Pair of Ninjas: I assume these folks weren't real ninjas, but due to their rather convincing garb, I walked on the other side of the street, just in case.

Sexy _______: Just about any noun works here. Cop, nurse, jar of mustard.

Telethuggy: A more, um, urban take on the popular childrens' characters.

    We at the Blender believe in good ol' American justice -- and every other kind of justice. That's why we're asking you, the Internet reading folks in Bend, to help us find the low-life couple that distracted local filmmaker Chris Kas, then proceeded to jack his leather jacket which contained his wallet, keys and a borrowed HD video camera.

    It’s been a while since we’ve seen the talented (and now married) Matt & Kali in Bend Oregon… but that’s all going to change tonight at Silver Moon Tap Room! If you’ve missed past coverage of The Ascetic Junkies, well… you must have been hidden under a rock.
