It's like when people record sporting events on their DVR and don't want friends to spoil the outcome of the game; they want to go on the journey for themselves. I think that's a reasonable thing to offer them, and I do appreciate the courtesy of the spoiler tags.

    Yes, 4-pack of Misfits, in honor of the reunion they said would never happen (they're playing their second show this weekend at Riot Fest in Chicago, having already played in Denver). You could say "Halloween" comes early this year.

    I will be there, I am 1 of the 2 trucks for the Misfits. Can I say "I Love my Job"

    Maybe for a single artist pack, but for a genre or decade-themed pack?

    Yeah, at least it's an established theme as opposed to "why isn't Pink Floyd in the game yet?"

    If i read all the posts first then the puzzle answer would have been spoiled, wouldn't it?

    Was there a reveal on why the puzzle elements were chosen as they were. I gather that the letters were a quote from a book or something that shared the title with a Misfit song, but why little men and that flamey background?
    The quote in the puzzle was referencing "The Crimson Ghost" which was a film serial in the 1940's and is where the Misfits' logo is taken from (see toy's post on page 2). The little men are Danzig Men code, uh, I mean Dancing Men code. The background is taken from here:

    That's a great detail. Nicely crafted. Good puzzle!

    The Misfits ?, great add.

    I'd be happy with just Die, Die My Darling.

    So, out of the September Newsletter :

    A refused return --> Fleetwood Mack

    Some deviants --> The Misfits

    The passage of time --> TBD

    It's definitely not phones per se. Spoiler tags work fine for me on my (android) phone. Mind you, I do request the desktop site. This site has bigger problems than spoiler tags when viewed in the 'mobile friendly' version.

    Misfits? Really? Wow, my Saudi roommates are gonna hate me (but I don't care!!!!!)

    Second, for the individual that requested Halloween, I second that request!!! Makes me feel like I am in high school again!!!!

    And finally, I know I mentioned this a few months ago, but for an American sitting in Saudi Arabia, this post is something I definitely look forward to on Fridays. Good to see some of the senior members getting in on the game. Clues the last few weeks have been killer, at least for a guy who drinks too much Keep up the great work and the killer packs you guys keep putting out. Great help for those of us who are still learning

    I agree about the spoiler tags, it doesn't make sense and is annoying when on a phone. If you want to solve the puzzle by yourself stick to the first post of the thread.

    As for the misfits I have always heard of them but never gave them a listen. I just jumped on YouTube to have a listen and like what I hear, I'm hoping for the song Helena as it reminds me of clean my wounds by corrosion of conformity.
