Friends Nick Thomas and Steve Jandick begin prepping their Halloween decorations a year ahead of time. They’ve been doing hardcore light shows for the past 15 years, but this season’s spooky lineup at the “Thomas Halloween House” in Naperville, Illinois may be their best year. It’s set to songs by artists like Queen, AC/DC, System of a Down, Michael Jackson and Animal Collective. Last year’s show had about 4,000 visitors per weekend! [Neatorama]
Dear Robert Wilkinson (aka drunk guy who sang “Bohemian Rhapsody” to a cop),
Hello. Nice to meet you. Queen is also my favorite band, although I prefer “Fat Bottomed Girls” or “Somebody to Love.” Sometimes when the world feels overwhelming and I don’t know what to do, I sing Queen. There’s something soothing about singing their songs aloud. They help put life in perspective. Speaking of “Somebody to Love” … I think you should drop me a line if you’re sober now. I’m not into drunks. Plus you live in Canada. I don’t know if serenading cops is a regular thing for you — I really hope not. But this happened back in November, so I’m assuming you’ve got your shit together by now. I should tell you, I really liked your message about “brotherhood of men on the planet earth.” I can tell you are a peaceful man at heart and that “physical violence is the least of [your] priorities.” I think we should go do some karaoke together. What say you?
It’s a well-known fact that Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” is one of the the
hardest songs to sing and until this very second, I didn’t think anyone but my beloved Freddie Mercury could pull it off. I don’t know whose brilliant idea it was to have The Muppets sing this classic rock song, but they should be given a prize or a medal or perhaps be knighted by the Queen. I particularly like Beaker’s contribution — mee-mee-mee-mee! [via Buzzfeed
