I can't believe its already October. If I had to pick a favorite month I think this would be it. If you were fortunate enough to have your baseball team make the playoffs, then you have at least one more week of rooting for the good guys (3 weeks if you're lucky). October is usually fun for me sports wise. And with the season the Patriots are having so far it looks as though the following months will be pretty cool too.
October weather is top shelf. You finally start getting that hint of cool air in the mornings and evenings, but you can still catch a sunny 80 degree day without a problem. You wake up and toss a hoodie or a windbreaker on and in the afternoon yer good to go with sleeves rolled up. Makes for excellent cycling, cyclo-touring or walking.
October also houses one of the best holidays going, Halloween. Costumes + Candy + mischief + darkness + Misfits = awesome. I find myself listening to a lot of horror punk in October, and there is nothing wrong with that. Danzig, Misfits and Samhain are all perfect for the occasion. Its also good to put away your summertime jams (Saves The Day, Belle and Sebastian, Rites of Spring, etc) and concentrate on Kid Dynamite, The Misfits, and Kill Your Idols. These bands are perfect for the fall.
I look forward to night time BBQs too, we have this little fire pit in the back yard that provides eery light and a little heat if necessary. Perfection.
