Wait what?

I want to share with you guys some things my friend Andrew said.

"Technically we took High School to pass the eight grade"
"I couldn't hear him too much sugar"

There are somethings in this world that make me miss being dead.

Anyways I know the blog is still small and I might as well be typing to myself but i don't want to go back and change these posts later so I'm going to imagine there are hundreds of people reading this. So I'm going to suggest things and link stuff I think should be shared with the world, or at the very least the kind of people who would follow my blog. First, some books. If your a fan of horror, not horror movies but actual psychologically traumatic horror, then I would suggest to you my favorite book of all time, Mark Z. Danielewski's House of Leaves. Of course customers who bought House of Leaves on amazon also bought my other book suggestion John Dies @ The End which you can pick up here as well. It falls into the estranged genre of horror/comedy the likes of which only the head editor of could write. For those of you unfamiliar with the site, go there and read some articles. If horror or comedy are not for you then I have no idea what you think you'll get out of this blog.

"Who has never killed an hour? Not casually or without thought, but carefully: a premeditated murder of minutes. The violence comes from a combination of giving up, not caring, and a resignation that getting past it is all you can hope to accomplish. So you kill the hour. You do not work, you do not read, you do not daydream. If you sleep it is not because you need to sleep. And when at last it is over, there is no evidence: no weapon, no blood, and no body. The only clue might be the shadows beneath your eyes or a terribly thin line near the corner of your mouth indicating something has been suffered, that in the privacy of your life you have lost something and the loss is too empty to share."
— Mark Z. Danielewski
