While dressing up humans for this time of year can prove to be either spooky or silly, our companions in the animal kingdom can get away with almost anything. From being able to pull off looks so deliciously edible to our favorite films and music stars, these looks may look trite on us, but go to a whole other level of cuteness once our four-legged friends strut their stuff. So take a look and be prepared: Can you get through this post without saying "awwwww" or "ERMAGAWD?"
SpiritHalloween.com This year's pet costumes are out of this galaxy in cuteness!

The uninitiated moviegoer might toss out a dig at silent films, and be heard speaking dismissively of black-and-white movies. It's a juvenile offense. But nobody jokes about The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, Robert Weine's 1920 horror film and an early gem of German Expressionism. That influential movement sought to convey mood, emotion, and psychology through the lighting and sets, an approach that directors of film noir copied a couple decades later.
We're not the type of person to harp on slutty Halloween costumes. We frankly don't give a damn about whether you think wearing a silver bikini makes you an "astronaut" because, let's be honest, Halloween is a holiday about getting laid, just like New Year's Eve, and National Feral Cat Day. If slutting up Big Bird helps you accomplish that, then, well, we can't say we applaud it, but we do understand. With that in mind, we present to you the most downright laughable "sexy" Halloween costumes this year. Because now we have uncomfortable images of Sesame Street characters in our head and we don't want to be the only ones.

In his Halloween! The Ballad of Michele Myers, drag performer Raya Light brings a bunch of people to their deaths, but, more importantly, he brings the 1980s back to life. Dunn cherishes the glory decade for its music, sitcoms, slasher flicks, political incorrectness, and its San Francisco Halloween spirit, which has changed for the worse, he says, now that "so many people come in to gawk."
In the spirit of Halloween, we present to you life advice from a zombie, who may not have all the answers, but he's definitely got the brains.
I used to have the most beautiful girlfriend in the whole world. I feel like I have too high of a standard now with who I choose to date. I've been single for two years. What do I do?
Beauty is important in a relationship because it is what originally attracts us to each other. It can also help keep the flame lit during those rough times (all relationships have them). So physical appearance does have some importance. But honestly, all that really matters is a girl's brains.

Did the season premiere of The Walking Dead leave you with a craving? Not to worry. The fine folks of San Francisco Theater Pub have your back. Over the last couple years they've done an amazing job filling the theater week's dark nights with cold pints and footlights, interpreting the works of Václav Havel, Alfred Jarry, Euripides, Sophocles, and the Bard in an atmosphere that makes all that sophistication pretty easy to swallow. And we're not just talking about the tasty victuals from their rotating pop-up kitchens.
