We are unfortunately not ready to fight extraterrestrial civilizations.  –  Sergey Berezhnoy

We’re only just beginning to see the Halloween links; two qualify this time around, plus the second video.  It’s the intro to the Halloween episode of The Simpsons, and was directed by Guillermo del Toro; see how many horror movie references you can spy in it.  That video was provided by Neil Gaiman, and the first by Mike Riggs; everything down to the first video was contributed by Jesse Walker, and the links between the videos by Judgy Bitch (“Poe’s law”), Popehat  (“elephant”), Mistress Matisse (“Twitterstorm”), Michael Whiteacre (“Kubrick”),   Wendy McElroy (“MP3s”), Radley Balko (“prosecutor” & “stink”), Franklin Harris  (“Snapple”), Brooke Magnanti (“Lincoln” & “future”), Walter Olson (“monsters”), Grace (“pipeline” & “bugging”), and Lucy Steigerwald (“together”).
