  • Get Real

    Halloween is about dressing up to scare away evil spirits and not about dressing your kids in sissy nerd suits. Unless you want them to be the laughing stock of their school or neighborhood. Of course, people that let their kids do this are pretty scary.

    I think I’ll be a Sansa for Halloween instead. Pretty much the same thing, just a blue light around the click wheel, and, of course, a Rockbox screengrab. That’s MY ideal halloween costume!
