It’s All About the Satyr

Mark wallis Halloween 2013 Devil Costume

It looks like the whole tradition of Halloween goes back thousands of years, which makes me feel so much better when I’m walking around looking diabolical.

Mummery, or the art of disguise was supposed to confuse the spirits of evil by imitating them and confusing their dark hearts, rendering them useless.

Gotta love those Pagans, whose Gaelic heritage was plundered by the invention of christianity, and our loveable horny, primitive Satyr (the hairy drunken guy who will do anyone for a laugh) gets cast as Satan, Lord of Darkness. Sounds like a bum deal to me. Some of my best nights have been with Satyrs.

24 seconds of Insanity

On Halloween I became possessed by Mr. Jolly, a rather animated character of insane grin and wobbly top hat. Everywhere Mr. Jolly went, he was greeted by laughter and smiles and people took his photograph so many times that he can’t remember how famous he is. Mr. Jolly and his friend The Eye Monster entertained and frightened the revellers in Manchester City, dancing and drinking vodka. The over-medicated screamed and ran away, but in general, a good night was had by all!
