So here it is, another chance... http://t.co/PBCW69OB42
Gay marriage legal. This feels like the summer that grunge broke & all the religious conservatives are suddenly Queensrÿche.
I know some folks are upset about the #SCOTUSMarriage thing. Does the fact someone you care about feels less excluded soften the blow?
Lot of punching down on homophobic, bigoted assholes this week.
"This #SCOTUSMarriage ruling. What's next? [A pulled-from-my-ass hypothetical that will never happen]???" -- all the egg avatars

31 HORROR STORIES – "Men Without Bones" (1954)

@ 12:00 PM

Gerald Kersh is another one of those writers who have so many good stories -- and such great titles! -- but the problem with Kersh would be choosing his SECOND best story. "The Dancing Doll", "The Man Who Sold His Head", "A Game Played in the Twilight", and "The Unkillable Man" would all be up there.

But Kersh took a trip into the metaphoric jungle, as well as outside the margins of space and time, for this one. If you're a fan of British gangster films, and are as aware of how influental Kersh's work was on the genre, then this story will confuse and chill you.

An explorer is dying, and tells a fellow passenger on his boat about discovering a crashed alien spaceship deep in the darkest jungle. And then, before he dies, he lets slip the even WORSE thing he discovered.

I know everyone likes "Sweets for the Sweet" and "To Serve Man" for their punch-in-the-gut, final line, twist endings.

But I think this one's got 'em beat.
