Dates That Really Rate: December 4th!

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 Wendayne Ackerman, who was born on this date in 1912, Freddy "Boom Boom" Cannon, who was born on this date in 1936, and John Lear, who was born on this date in 1942!
