    (Of course, if it turns out it's hanging there right now, over in the corner, where it's been for 20 years, um...I'll be a little embarrassed.)
    Well what Mansion is this picture from? Disneyland? WDW?

    Disneyland. This is the DL forum and unless otherwise stated, that's the assumption.

    Whoa, whoa, whoa!

    You guys must be joking. There's no way that the lace and bedazzled bride can out creep the faceless bride.

    Stoic and emotionless, this shadowed bride hides in the musty corner of an abandoned attic waiting for a suitor who will never come...



    That my friends, is friggin' creepy.

    Re: Revenge of "Long-Forgotten Haunted Mansion Effect," or The Thread 3

    I know a man whose percussion group was featured on The Gong Show once...

    Haunted Mansion, right! Sorry! Hmmm...let's see...ah, there's something to say--I miss the "perhaps Madame Leota..." spiel. The other removed lines can remain omitted, as far as I'm concerned, but I like the Ghost Host's introduction of Madame Leota. I really felt their absence last time I rode, about a week ago. Actually, almost exactly a week--give it one more hour. Time flies. Anyway, I understand the claims that it steps on the toes of her spiel, and I understand that it was the original Imagineers who wanted the line out...but I think they're flat-out wrong in this case.

    Here's how it fits:

    The Mystic Knights of the Oingo Boingo, formed in late 1972 by Richard Elfman, was a musical theatre group who would later become Los Angeles ska/New Wave/punk band Oingo Boingo.

    At the time, the band employed as many as fifteen musicians at any given time, playing over thirty instruments, including some instruments built by band members.

    As Richard's interest shifted to filmmaking, younger brother Danny Elfman would take the helm. They gained a following in Los Angeles, and appeared as contestants on The Gong Show in 1976, winning the episode they appeared on with 24 points out of a possible 30 (and without getting gonged.



    Towards the twilight of Oingo Boingo's 17-year run, Danny Elfman would become a renowned film scorer, earning himself accolades equal to that of peers Alan Silvestri, Hans Zimmer, and John Williams.

    Yet, most notably to HM fans and many low-level goths, Danny not only scored the music for Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas but would also provide the singing voice of title character Jack Skellington as well as other minor characters.

    Nightmare, though not a box office success, would gain notoriety in VHS and DVD sales, so much so, that Disney would establish an annual holiday overlay over perennial favorite "The Haunted Mansion," whereas the film's characters would "take over" the attraction between the months of October through January.

    So there you have it. From gong to The Gong Show and back to the HM.

    So anyway, there's this gong hanging in the Séance Circle in a 2000 photo, and I was just sorta wondering about it this afternoon, and uh...
