Here’s mud in yer eyes, boils and ghouls! JT and Baker return to the Last Bar on the Left and chug some pints while busting balls and babbling about horror. This month they cover upcoming events and cons, new genre TV pilots, preview new film releases and review Mama, The Sorcerer and The White Snake, Come Out and Play, and The ABCs of Death, plus an interview and music from The Gutter Ghouls.This is the last episode that will be offered for free. For Season Two of The Shocktail Hour, you'll have to pony up a subscription to Hauntcast! (Remember that you get some amazing vendor discounts by subscribing to Hauntcast, including 15% in the ShellHawk's Creations Etsy store!)
Judging your unfinished pot while it is still on the wheel is like deciding you don’t like a book because the cover is all wrong. It's like deciding that the film you are about to watch will be great simply because Bill Murray is in it. In other words, it is a preemptive judgment. While the pot is still on the wheel it not only suffers from the disadvantages of where and how you are looking at it then, but also from the fact that it is incomplete. A pot still on the wheel is something like a noodle before its been cooked. Sure, it will be the foundation for your shrimp scampi, your Miso soup, your Pad Thai, but to judge the eventual meal on what essentially is still an uncooked noodle just seems a bit preposterous. For beginners, at least….Here's to uncooked noodles, my friends, and learning how to cook them, just right.

With the sun and the moon in our hands/The jade-like Zisha are made out of the heaven and the earth/ Just like by God/Making all craftsmanship in the shade
The flame of the Long-kiln never/Never fades away for thousands of years/And the story of five-colors earth/Passes on from generation to generation
Jingxi gravel/the Fortune Zisha are/Turned out to be teapots/ the symbol of talent
Accompanying my adorable beauty/And embracing my bosom friends/I will cherish the lot, connected by the teapot/ reading the romance and the taste of the Han and Tang dynasty
Accompanying with my adorable beauty/And embracing my bosom friends/I will cherish the lot, connected by the teapot/reading the most beautiful lyrics from long ago
