“All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream”
Edgar Allan Poe

“I’m sorry, but can you tell me where I am?”
“You are at the beginning,” she said.
“The beginning of what?” I asked.
“The beginning of The Wandering Wish.”
What is real, what is not? The journey is your own.

GAHHH! I just watched a Suspense movie I thought looked interesting/scary and saved on my Watch List, and saw it was leaving Prime in 14 days and thought, "Eh, if I don't watch it now, I probably won't."


I was not prepared for that ending. 💔

HIghly recommended. It's a very good story and the actors put their *all* into it.

#365Stories in 2023 - 157/365
"The Monkey's Paw" (1902)
by W.W. Jacobs

The Whites are visited by a friend, Sergeant-Major Morris. He shows them a mummified monkey's paw, which will grant three wishes for its owner. Morris throws it in the fire, warning the Whites about interfering with fate; but Mr. White retrieves it and puts it to use.

Jacobs's oft-adapted tale of unintended consequences offers a clear warning - be careful what you wish for.

Like the villain in the final frame of a scary movie, some horror franchises just refuse to die. Nineties and noughties movies "Final Destination," "I Know What You Did Last Summer" and "Saw" all have revivals in the works — as well as bona fide classics such as "Alien" and "The Exorcist." Here are details on when we can see new installments. Which — if any — are you looking forward to seeing lurch back to life?

Astounding Stories vol. 6, no. 3 (June 1931)

No idea who are the good guys, or why that leopard looks like taxidermy being held up by someone out of shot.

I would say the gorilla is Copyright-Safe-Tarzan's ally and is protecting legally-non-actionable Jane, but it seems rather emasculating for C-S-T, he's all floppy and weak.

FRIDAY THE 13TH PART IV: THE FINAL CHAPTER (1984) has an awesome opening montage. The pacing in this one is a little slow. It makes up with it for some excellent kill scenes. This is peak Tom Savini. Once this thing gets going, it’s a series of frenetic moments. The early films in the franchise are just so strong.

All the White Spaces by Ally Wilkes - Historical horror set on an Antarctic expedition right after WW1, drawing deeply upon the traumas of that war & upon its central character's trans identity. I'd heard good things, but this book still blew me away. It's absolutely gripping, the characters fascinating, the atmosphere intense. Read if you have any taste at all for horror, or want to read more trans protagonists.

"The Thing on the Doorstep" by HP Lovecraft.

A rendering in modern verse.


#Lovecraft #TheOffspring #horror #90s

"The Thing on the Doorstep"
by HP Lovecraft

I married this girl,
And she's trying to possess my mind.
Well she does witchcraft,
And it's of the necromantical kind.

She talks about Deep Ones,
And that Abdul Alhazred bit.
I ain't a psychic sensitive,
So I'm really scared of that shit.

And I said, yeah, yeah,
Oh man, she does witchcraft,
And I'm gonna pay.
Yeah, yeah,
She married a Pickman, yeah.

Now, I know she'll do sorcery
If I don't watch her real late.
And I know she'll get me committed
If I don't let her turn me into a Waite.

And I said, yeah, yeah,
Oh man, she does witchcraft,
And I'm gonna pay.
Yeah, yeah.

I don't know why you're messed up,
I don't know why you study cosmic lore.
Just do me a favor,
And leave your demons at the door.
Now she talks about elder gods nonstop,
But I don't mind.
But when she invokes their names in bed,
That's where I draw the line.

You told me a hundred times,
How your father died and he's gone.
But I wish you wouldn't call your daddy,
From the hellish beyond.

And I said, yeah, yeah,
Oh man, she does witchcraft,
And I'm gonna pay.
Yeah, yeah.

And I said, yeah, yeah
Oh man, she does witchcraft
And I'm gonna pay.
Yeah, yeah,
She married a Pickman,
Now she's putting her soul into me.

And I'm gonna pay.
Gonna pay.
Gonna pay.
Gonna pay.
Gonna pay.
Gonna pay, woo, wow!

If that's not your familiar,
Then why does it follow me around?
If you're not stealing my brain,
Then why is the Abyss dragging my soul down?

I don't know why you're messed up,
I don't know why you study cosmic lore.
Just do me a favor,
And leave your demons at the door.

This is a masterpiece, lines, colours, perspective, the over-exposure if that's the right word for what's happening bottom left; it's dynamic and expressive. Everything around the outside is sharp straight lines but what's going on in the middle is organic-looking with curves.

Research question:

In a small-ish US city, the protagonist has stolen really valuable shit but is a complete amateur. They've probably left a bunch of evidence.

What kinds of forensic evidence and other research can a city's local police process quickly? What has to go off to labs or be sent to better-equipped state or federal authorities?

fun fact: that scene (& the incredible musical number that followed, "he's the wiz" was filmed at The New York State Pavilion from the 1964 New York World’s Fair, famous for its "flying saucer" design. it was also used in "men in black."

Topic: Contrarian Barbarian's Book Club (Of greatness!)

@bookstodon I'm popping this up once more, just in case anyone else wants to join before our first meeting in late June.

Is anyone out there interested in being a part of a Contrarian Barbarian's Book Club where we read whatever the hell we want individually and meet up once a month on the newly formed Contrarian Barbarian Discord server to tell each other about it for a couple of minutes each and then discuss? (All genres/fiction/non-fiction on the table.)

The key focus would be sharing books we love with other people in a positive way. It'd have the diehard rule that if you freakin' love a thing, no one can be negative about it because that would be raining on your parade and your parade is spectacular dammit!

All time zones welcome to say hi!

LGBTQIA++, disability and neurodivergent friendly, with a structure with set rules of conduct--meaning that boorishness (repeatedly talking/typing over people and not respecting boundaries) or trollishness gets booted with the might of Gandalf warding off the Balrog.

If you like the sound of this, reply to this and tell me about the book you love most with the power of the sun.

We've already got a bunch of amazing people and the more the merrier! :blobsmilehappyeyes:

A pretty black woman is wearing a lacy, off-the-shoulder white dress is sitting in a wicker chair and reading a large hardback book.

My son is over and we're playing a bunch of games. My current favorite (and also one of his) is the INCREDIBLE roguelike Death Road to Canada. And like it sounds, you're fighting pixelated digital zombies in the apocalypse, trying to make your way to the safety of Canada. This game is SO fun and replayable (but beatable, we've beaten it three times since he's been here) and I suspect it would make an EXCELLENT party game. Up to four players can jump in and out. Every game is random and you don't win every time, but it's so wild and really hilarious too. I won this game in a giveaway and was pretty psyched but had no idea it was such a great game. Just a blast. You can even make your own characters too (and you'll meet some familiar ones), as you grab buffs, upgrades, and all KINDS of weapons. There's some really cool decision making involved along the way, along with skill you learn and luck you hope to have. Onward to Canada!

The entrance to a cave. In the distance you see ribs towering over you. There is a giant skull decorated with giant red flowers laying on the ground. It is beautiful and terrifying.
Pink glowing flowers dot a shoreline. There are sharp rocks protruding everywhere. The actual shoreline looks like it is made of obsidian. Light is glowing through cracks in the ground. It looks dreamy.
A wall is broken and in the distance, where it broke, you see a nebula. It looks like you are in a hallway in space. There is writing on the wall talking about self-hate and a dialogue bubble just underneath.
I giant skeleton rests against an iridescent obsidian cave wall. The cave is glowing like it is made of stars. It is gently purple, pink, and blue. The skeleton looks like it is made of old rock. It is holding a beautiful large red flower.
