live like jack and sally

Tim Burton was born in 1958, Burbank California. He began making movies at a young age. After high school Burton attended the California Institute of Arts to study character animation. After he graduated from the Institute in 1979, he was hired by Disney.
Later in his career, an old poem he wrote back in 1982, caught the attention of Disney and they decided to use it as the blueprint to make “The Nightmare Before Christmas” which was then directed by Henry Selick, a good friend of Tim Burton.

This is Halloween

“Hey, Holtz?” Erin hesitantly knocked on the door to the lab, where the blonde engineer was - as usual - completely emerged in another one of her projects. Not for the first time that day, Erin wondered if she had even taken a single break at all already. Every time she came up to check on Holtz, the woman was hard at work, and it wouldn’t surprise the physicist one bit to learn she was running on sheer force of will alone.

“I was just wondering…” She continued, fingers fidgeting at her sides. “Did you have a Halloween costume idea yet? Because… I don’t know… I thought it could be fun to… Maybe do something together? With the Ghostbusters?”

Song of the day #276

The angel from my nightmare
The shadow in the background of the morgue
The unsuspecting victim of darkness in the valley
We can live like Jack and Sally if we want
Where you can always find me
And we’ll have Halloween on Christmas
