"When your mom dies you're the best memory of her. Everything you do is a memory of her." -- Alice Oswalt, 7
She wrote lines that stung & hummed. 13 years in her presence was happily humbling. #RIPMichelleMcNamara https://t.co/bSYWFFD8NY
There will never, EVER, be a replacement for Prince. God knows I tried. https://t.co/DyedoBEJyO
Dear #Grammys: Let Willie Nelson do the Prince tribute and Lady Gaga do the Merle Haggard one. Not joking. Show how universal they were.
"Prince died? Welp, guess it's up to me now." -- Jimmy Buffett, probably.

31 HORROR STORIES -- "Thus I Refute Beelzy" (1940)

@ 1:00 PM

John Collier -- which one do I pick? The super-short "The Chaser" (shorter than "The Clock"!), which is a disturbing story about why love potions only cost a dollar? "Evening Primrose" has been so over-adapted, -anthologized, and -remembered it was pointless. And "Bottle Party" while not really a horror story, has one of the most horrifying and disturbing last lines ever written.

But I like "Thus I Refute Beelzy", if only because it uses a sitcom format to tell its story. One that ends with a nasty, nasty...bite.
