Probably some of the scariest children’s literature we remember. We wanted to do something a little special this Halloween so we picked one of the scariest stories we remember reading as kids and we’re gonna read it to YOU. (Special effects compliments of Mr. de Torres.)
Also, we’re going to be watching who reblogs this nugget of horror and gift any scary iTunes movie to one lucky person who reblogs or shares this on Facebook to share in the scariness of All Hallows’ Eve. We’ll announce the winner tonight at 8pm PST.

The Rocket Summer Tour: Road Update Vol. Three (New Song: “Stay” Acoustic)
A few months ago, our management reached out to us about an opportunity to write a song that would have potential for placement in a hotel/travel commercial. Someone out there was looking for just the right tune for their project. We happened to be hanging out at the time we got the news. We were bouncing around song concept ideas and both felt like this was the perfect challenge.
This song is a product of that writing session. We have no idea if the company ever heard the song or not, but then again… does that even matter?
We humbly present, “Stay”.
Location: An abandoned train car just outside Denver, CO.
Lets pack our bags and hit the road With 13 hours to San Francisco And if Georgia calls our name, we’ll be there just the same Making homes away from home Heard Seattle’s nice this time of year Take a ferry through the Sound Then head south right down to Portland Chasing sun over in Tucson Catching waves in California Making homes away from home
Stay with me Stay as long as you like We’ll see the world every day sunrise to sunrise No matter where we are How we got there Close or far I just hope that you’ll remember To stay as long as you like
Lets take a plane to Tokyo Pass the time just taking pictures Meet the locals for some dinner Then we’ll head over to London Riding trains, traversing Scotland Building homes from what we’ve known
No need to rush, time is always on our side We’ve got the world at our fingertips tonight In the morning when we wake, a new adventure will await And when we’re done, we’ll know exactly who we are
