Leslie's Playlist: Halloween

I realize that it's been a very long time since I shared a playlist with you, I'm so sorry! Things have been very busy over here at Casa de Q. But since Halloween is right around the corner, you know I HAVE to share my favorite spooky songs with you. So without further ado, here we go.

No Halloween playlist is complete without this song from Dark Divine! It's the quintessential Halloween song.
I was trying to not put the obvious songs on here, but I can't help it with this one. The Misfits belong on every spooky playlist that exists. Forever and ever amen.
I recently discovered this song from Call Me Karizma. It's a sick jam and I'm living for it.
If you're not already familiar with Mike's Dead, you've got to get on board. You won't be disappointed at all.
What a beautiful ode to Psycho. Have you seen this video all the way through?? Major kudos to Ice Nine Kills for getting Joe Bob Briggs as the Judge. Man, I love this song!
An ABSOLUTE classic! This one from Concrete Blonde belongs on every spooky playlist.
You knew I was going to put something from Motionless on this list, I mean, how could I not?
Another ABSOLUTE classic that should never be passed up for a spooky playlist.
I could literally go on forever with this Halloween playlist, but I'll end it with Stabbing Westward.


I hope you enjoyed my Halloween playlist. Can't wait to share more spooky music with you next year.

Hair Experts Celebrate the Mullet’s Return: Rock 'n' Roll's Timeless Symbol of Confidence

The esteemed celebrity hairdresser, Christophe-Nicolas Biot, offers insights into the resurgence of the mullet, a haircut deeply associated with the rebellious energy of rock 'n' roll, and shares tips to master the trend for 2023.


Channeling the essence of rock 'n' roll, Christophe-Nicolas notes, “the most important thing to remember is that the mullet is not just a mullet, it's something that inspires attitude and style in clothing.”


He adds, “Whether you like it or not, the mullet is making a real comeback because it can distinguish people who were quite ordinary with their usual haircut.” Source.


Highlighting the confidence radiated by this iconic style, Jared Henderson, who styled Doja Cat's "soft-serve" mullet for the 2021 Grammy Awards, describes its embodiment of rock 'n' roll audacity. Henderson says, “It oozes, ‘I’m this confident being, and I really couldn’t care less about what people say, because I know I’m rocking the hell out of this hairstyle”. Source.

Where to get some coffee deals on National Coffee Day

Ah, coffee! As a commercial once sang to us, "the best part of waking up is Folgers in your cup". Can I get an Amen here?!

Friday September 29th is National Coffee Day and there are some places around town that are giving their loyal customers deals & discounts on their coffee.

Here's a list on what national chains are participating*.


Participating Dunkin’ locations across the U.S. are offering a free hot or iced medium coffee with the purchase of any other beverage or bakery item on Friday.

Krispy Kreme

Customers at participating Krispy Kreme locations can try the chain’s new drip coffee or espresso drinks (one per customer) for free on Sept. 29, no purchase necessary. Anyone who purchases a dozen doughnuts can also buy an additional dozen Original Glazed doughnuts for just $2 more.


In honor of National Coffee Day, new subscribers (or former subscribers) who sign up for Panera’s Unlimited Sip Club between Sept. 29 and Oct. 10 can join for $99 per year (a savings of approximately $20 over the regular annual rate) or $5 per month for four months (a savings of almost $7 per month).


While not offering any national deals on coffee or drinks, select Starbucks locations are said to be hosting coffee tastings on Sept. 29. (Customers are asked to inquire with their local shops to find out who may be participating.)


While this small list is just about national chains, be sure to check with the many independently owned coffee shops here in town. We've got a lot of them and it doesn't hurt to ask if they've got anything going on for National Coffee Day.

Details for the 2023 Tax-Free Weekend

If you've got kids, or maybe you're getting ready to go back to college, this weekend is the tax free weekend!

Here’s what qualifies:

  • Clothes that have a taxable value of $100 or less.
  • School supplies – not exceeding $50 per purchase.
  • Computer software with a taxable value of $350 or less.
  • Personal computers at $1,500 or less.
  • Other computer devices like a mouse, keyboard, external disk drive that cost $1,500 or less.
  • And graphing calculators at $150 or less.


Missouri is one of only 16 states in the county offering tax-free back-to-school shopping.

According to the Missouri Department of Revenue, every store in Kansas City and the rest of the state will be part of Missouri’s tax-free weekend.

Municipalities within the state can no longer opt out of the sales tax after Senate Bill 153 was passed in 2021.

The Department of Revenue said tax-exempt items bought online also count toward the tax-free weekend. Items can be delivered after the weekend, and the transaction must be completed during August 4-6 and shipped to a Missouri address.
