Politicians and Halloween – A Truly Terrifying Mix

Just in time for Halloween, the latest Obama dub is here, and it’s perfect.

If you’re looking for a politically inspired halloween costume, the Internet is full of ideas for you. How about Paul Ryan – our new Speaker of The House and all around swole dude?

Or the ridiculous “Sexy Donald Trump” – extra points to guys who rock this costume.

I asked the Internet for good Bernie Sanders costume ideas, but all it came back with is this. Bonus! You’ve already got this wig on hand from that time you played Benjamin Franklin in a school play.


Now that I think about it, maybe just go as one of the Kardashians.

Slacker’s got your Halloween parties covered with a whole collection of Halloween stations!

Ease On Down, Ease On Down The Road… Again

WHAAAAAT? This is exciting!


After a couple of questionable attempts to bring live musicals back to television (The Sound Of Music in 2013, Peter Pan in 2014) NBC might have finally struck on a winning formula. And that formula involves Ne-Yo, Mary J. Blige, Common & Queen Latifah, along with other huge stars!

And while YES, I’m very excited about this… I have to wonder – where’s Wiz Khalifa? How you gonna put on a live version of The Wiz and not include the biggest artist of the moment ACTUALLY NAMED WIZ? You can’t tell me he wouldn’t have made an excellent Scarecrow.

If you want to get ready with the soundtrack from the 1978 film featuring Michael Jackson and Diana Rosscheck it out on Slacker!

Don’t Call It A Comeback…

What would you pay to see your favorite artist in concert… if you had thought you were never going to get a chance again? OK, what if it’s actually a hologram of that artist? What if that artist is Whitney Houston?


It’s happening, according to a company company called Hologram USA, who are spending millions to develop a 3D moving image of the late superstar that will launch a world tour in 2016. And surprisingly, they have the support of her family and estate, with her sister Pat Houston saying:

“It’s a great opportunity for her fans to see a reinvention of one the most celebrated female artists in history and to continue a legacy of performances that will not be forgotten in years to come. I look forward to the partnership.”

I know, I know, this seems like kind of a bad idea on the surface. But let’s check out a couple of super cool holographic performances from years past that might change your mind. The first one everyone tends to think of is the epic Tupac resurrection at Coachella in 2012.

And what about bringing back the late, great Michael Jackson for last year’s Billboard Music Awards. You’ve got to admit, he looked good.

Is it worth it to have one last epic Whitney experience? Or do you think these artists are better left alone? Let me know where you stand on Twitter by talking to @ParkeronSlacker – and check out some of the biggest hits of the past 3 decades on Slacker’s 80’s, 90’s & Today station!
