Haha, yup…they visit their oooold house and it’s new owner, and it’s haunted. Um, it’s rather graphic with a food grinder beneath the sink and a hand…and clapping monkeys, I hate clapping monkeys.
NOT CLAPPING MONKEYS.
ANYTHING BUT CLAPPING MONKEYS.
Monkeys are bad enough, but once they start clapping… that’s like the room full of laughing ventriloquist dummies in Doctor Who or the killer Barbie dolls in the Twilight Zone. The ordinary, innocent sorts of objects are the most frightening of them all. TV shows have to cut it out before we all have pantophobia!
A few days ago, I posted a graphic the dangers of fluoride added to tap water…
…followed by a long explanation as to why we shouldn’t worry about this. I used numbers and stuff because numbers are nice and help to add a bit of logos. There was even some sarcasm at the end. All in all, it pretty much said that whoever made it was an idiot if he/she was serious about it.
And of course, someone just reblogs it for the poster, and not my commentary.
But he/she does not delete my commentary. So my commentary is on his/her page without a rebuttal.
It’s possible that our reblogger didn’t understand it or something; the same person didn’t understand a graphic representing religious coexistence, and those are pretty straightforward.
I used to be really terrible with scary movies and TV shows, even trailers. I would watch mildly scary shows (i.e. So Weird) and be fine, though So Weird resulted in at least three nightmares over several years’ time. It was the ghosthunting programs and trailers for things like The Grudge that really freaked me out; one time, when I was rather little, a Halloween ghosthunting special had me sleeping in my parents’ room for a few months until they forced me to stay in my own room.
And this was years ago. The last time anything really got to me was back when I was in elementary school, and I’ve been watching shows about cryptozoology, paranormal whatnot, monsters, demons, ghosts, zombies… everything of that sort. Some of my favorite movies involve zombies. I wanted to be a cryptozoologist for some time. I’ve read books that my parents and grandparents couldn’t get through because they were too scary or depressing. I thought I was over most of that stuff.
Why, you ask? Because Supernatural made me turn on the lights in the middle of the show today. It’s not even that scary. Accursed Bloody Mary urban legend just ruined my night.
I have a lot of trouble photographing zebras. Also, ungulates with horns/antlers, but that’s a different issue entirely.
Cameras do not see the world as we see it. We can see the colors of a sunset and the landscape below it, but a camera can only see a sunset with a big, black blob below it or a pretty landscape with a blinding white sky above it. This has brought about the need for RAW image format and HDR photography to fix this sometimes-flaw of the camera.
Unfortunately, I cannot utilize either, so my zebras have very bright white stripes and very dark black stripes. Couple that with harsh winter light and you get the horror that’s currently sitting before me in Photoshop Elements.
I also have problems composing zebras within a shot for some reason. In all of my files, I only have, what, two decent photos of zebras? Curses.
I had $55 in Amazon gift certificates saved up from birthdays and Christmases, so I decided to finally use them. Unless Amazon messes up my order (as that does happen) a stuffed aye aye, a stuffed humpback whale, a Victory of the Daleks poster, and season one of Sherlock are all mine!
It was a pretty good deal, though; the poster was supposedly 80% off and the DVD was 46% off, and I only had to pay for shipping on the poster and the whale.
Sales, as I’ve found, are very nice when you’re the one doing the buying.
Now, hopefully Amazon doesn’t run out of any of those products; I really don’t want that aye aye replaced by a howler monkey or anything like that. Primates that aren’t Homo sapiens sapiens or prosimians really freak me out. They’re a bit Uncanny Valley for my tastes.
So I'm looking at the episode list for Supernatural
Who names these things? This series must have the best-named episodes ever.
It certainly beats out Doctor Who’s standard “The ____ of ____” titles. I mean, “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Sam Winchester” and “Shut Up, Dr. Phil” are pretty awesome as far as TV show episode titles go. You’d never expect it to be a violent and dramatic show with demons killing people left and right.
