They already have a counting vampire, so why not?

I expect a zombie to show up on ‘Sesame Street’ soon, teaching kids to count.

Edge of the World

It was as if when I looked into his eyes I was standing alone on the edge of the world . . . on a windswept ocean beach. There as nothing but the soft roar of the waves

Against Sleep

Against sleep . . . Good luck.

Dracula, by Bram Stoker is a good read. Without this there would be no Hellsing Ultimate!

Oh, the terrible struggle that I have had against sleep so often of late; the pain of the sleeplessness, or the pain  of the fear of sleep, and with such unknown horror as it has for me!

–Bram Stoker, Dracula

Outward Surge of Power

horror, weird, quote, Algernon Blackwood

An excerpt from The Man Whom the Trees Loved, by Algernon Blackwood

The outward surge of some enormous Power was what she felt . . . something to which every instinct in her being rose in opposition because it threatened her and hers. In that moment she realized the Personality of the Forest . . . menacing.

We Fear Death

Horror, Quote, Alison Gopnik

We fear death so profoundly, not because it means the end of our body, but because it means the end of our consciousness – better to be a spirit in Heaven than a zombie on Earth.

The Irony that Kills Us

vampire, quote, Anne Rice

The world changes, we do not, therein lies the irony that kills us.
― Anne Rice, Interview with the Vampire

They’re Quite Sickly

Vampires get the joy of flying around and living forever, werewolves get the joy of animal spirits. But zombies, they’re not rich, or aristocratic, they shuffle around. They’re a group phenomenon, they’re not very fast, they’re quite sickly. So what’s the pleasure of being one?
–Margaret Atwood

We’re on a Kick!

10_quote

Werewolves were far more terrifying than vampires. It is probably the idea of seeing the human within the beast and knowing you can’t reach it. It might as well be a great white shark. There is no sitting down and discussing Proust with it, which the traditional vampire model seems to leave room for.
–Glen Duncan

Inventing Interesting People

12_quote

I love inventing interesting people and then pushing them to their absolute limits – and usually those absolute limits involve homicidal faeries, werewolves, or some other paranormal menace.

Ashkenaz Likes Werewolves?

Horror Quote #9

Another werewolf thing. Like most animals, we spent a large part of our lives engaged in the three Fs of basic survival. Feeding, fighting and… reproduction.
― Kelley Armstrong, Stolen

The third F was obviously farting. Feeding, fighting, and farting. Reproducing is for carbon-based life whose  ancestors were amoebas . . . What am I talking about? Well, it’s not me talking (Penny), it’s actually Ashkenaz. The other mortals have had their free-will (which is just a placebo, as you creatures are simply puppets) sucked out of them. I’ve noticed that this tends to happen to you when you’re preoccupied with work. Work is not as delightful as those illusory cats you desperately try to cling to.

Regardless of what I am not trying to say . . . As an overlord (and apparently an imprisoned resident of Jake’s attic–I have no idea how that happened, I swear) it is my infernal duty to pick up the slack of Team Monster.

I hate my non-life.

P.S: Enjoy your cat illusions! 

P.P.S: I really do like werewolves . . . They are . . . Delicious . . . 

(He really, really, wants to be relevant–Penny)

Adults Are Evil

Adults Are Evil

Adults Are Evil

Let me tell you something about full moons: kids don’t care about full moons. They’ll play in a full moon, no worries at all. They only get scared of magic or werewolves from stupid adults and their stupid adult stories.
–Neil deGrasse Tyson

I happen to take pride in my ability to ruin everything. Cute little puppies? Nope! Those were just . . . puppets . . . Good clowns? No, they’re pure evil. Kittens. Well, cats are actually just elaborate illusions orchestrated by spider people.

Cheers!

Access to What?

5_quote

Access to What?

I certainly believe that what we perceive as humans is just the tip of the iceberg. I don’t necessarily believe in vampires or werewolves or that kind of thing, but I believe there is definitely a realm we don’t necessarily have access to.
–Alan Ball

The horror quote of the week comes a day late; a migraine came to visit me Tuesday, and decided to stay until Wednesday afternoon-ish. Not pleasant, not one bit . . .

Believe in Things

4_quote

Believe in Things

I want you to believe…to believe in things that you cannot.
–Bram Stoker, Dracula

Sometimes you’re better off not knowing. That’s my counter-argument for the day, besides the fact that Dracula is a good book, and so is The Historian.

Unfunny Zombies

3_quote

Unfunny Zombies

A zombie film is not fun without a bunch of stupid people running around and observing how they fail to handle the situation.
–George A. Romero

Business Man Zombie. If there was a zombie that was not fun, it was that one. My favourite zombie movie is still Shaun of the Dead. Actually, I’m not really a fan of zombie flicks unless they’re comedies–the whole idea of a zombie is a bit depressing. Maybe I haven’t seen a decent zombie flick yet?

But that Business Man Zombie . . .

A Very Different Matter

quote_36

A Very Different Matter

Night was a very different matter. It was dense, thicker than the very walls, and it was empty, so black, so immense that within it you could brush against appalling things and feel roaming and prowling around a strange, mysterious horror.

― Guy de Maupassant, The Complete Short Stories of Guy de Maupassant, Part One
