Billy Corgan probably didn’t have this in mind. Or maybe he did.

In any case, filmmaker Devin Graham brings us — just in time for Halloween — the real thing: smashing pumpkins.

Graham shot the video at 1,000 frames per second and slowed down the footage so we can see the pumpkins in all their glory. Watch as seeds, pulp and orange chunks go flying. Graham also reverses the footage, so you can see just how the Jack-o-lanterns break apart. Read more…

Bathe With This Pumpkin Spice, But Don’t Eat It!

We thought you’d have to pry our Bliss Lemon + Sage Body Scrub from our cold, dead hands. But watch your back, Bliss, because you’ve got competition! The Body Deli’s Pumpkin Spice Scrub smells can-I-eat-this? yummy and the sea salts and shea butter exfoliated our dull winter skin, leaving buttery softness in its wake. We particularly loved using this scrub on our always-calloused feet instead of a trusty Ped Egg! You will have to act quickly, though, because this special-edition scrub is only available in the month of November. Pumpkin pie might just be for Turkey Day but you can bathe in pumpkin all winter long.
