And now the VU's "Sunday Morning" is playing. While I'm watching fleshy waves of Super Bowl fans clog the airport. Beautiful.
@johnmoe 'Cuz we'd like to listen to something melodic/And our mood has been elevated by your musicianship
The Judy Collins cover of "Sisters of Mercy" playing in Sky Harbor Airport while Super Bowl fans pour off the planes? Nicely done.
Wow, @standuplive was really fun. Clubs are intimate live-wire affairs and I gotta remember to do 'em more often.
@BabsVan Oh shit I gotta go on. Nicely played!

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.
