Dates That Really Rate: February 14th!

In-between Midnite Monster Hops, the Phantom Creeps travel in the Bucket o'Blood throughout all of space and time! There are countless wonders to behold to inspire the young and the old: Artists, dreamers, and creators, have struggled and fought not just throughout time on your own planet, but on infinite spheres throughout the inky, infinite, blackness of space!

Earthlings: Throw out your hollow Hallmark holidays! Today is important!

As this writhing universe collectively races towards its inevitable doom, the Midnite Monster Hop marks the births & beginnings of those that really rate! Invest time and energy into the existence of Ray "Crash" Corrigan, who was born on this date in 1902, Art Hern, who was born on this date in 1907, David Kyle, who was born on this date in 1919, Bill Campbell, who was born on this date in 1920, Murray the K, who was born on this date in 1922, Blowfly, who was born on this date in 1939, and Sylvain Sylvain, who was born on this date in 1951!
