OKJEWPID -- Hilarious new sketch from @SadTireComedy: https://t.co/mVkiuxWUvI
Right now, @ShittingtonUK & @undeadmolly are debating the @MarkSteynOnline essay I RT'd. Smart people using Twitter right.
"The doctors were in the sky cutting up the moon." -- Things my daughter says that would make excellent post-punk lyrics
.CaptainSpringer @AgentsofSHIELD TRUST ME, Alex. You will be proven wrong. Gloriously, joyously wrong. In time.
RT'd an essay on PC censorship by @MarkSteynOnline. Now getting accused of agreeing w/Steyn on EVERYTHING, which proves Steyn's point.

Join the List!

31 HORROR STORIES -- "The Boarded Window" (1906)

@ 1:00 PM

Ambrose Bierce. His "An Inhabitant of Carcosa" got H.P. Lovecraft's blood a-boiling. Being the Ramones to the whole Cthulhu Mythos alone gets him on this list. But, again, he's got so many to choose from.

Fuck it, I'm choosing this. And all because of the last two sentences. It's one thing to have Bierce's gift for casually describing horror head-on (a favorite: "A man though naked may be dressed in rags", describing a hideously mutilated corpse). Here, he tells a folksy, outdoors-y tale of the frontier. Nothing seems all too horrible -- until those last...two...sentences.
