Second Blog in a row deviating from the usual reviews I post here. I figured, for those of you who actually read the stuff I put up here, or those who may be mildly interested, I would let you in on a little more of the wild and crazy workings on all the screws loose in this fantastical wonder of a noggin' of mine....yeah, I kind of dragged that one out a bit, didn't I?
Anyway, No, I don't staple kittens to walls while wearing women's undergarments, but what I do Is that I have a fascination with the unknown. Such as Ghosts, Urban Legends, myths, and the macabre.
I have always been fascinated with the world of the Paranormal, mostly given the inevitability of so many questions which surround it. Such as the most well known of "What are ghosts? Do they exist? What are they exactly,etc?" Because, the truth is, no one really has a definite answer for that one. One can instantly say that it's the soul of a person that has passed, but they are still in the living world, in some form such as a full apparition or manifesting itself through energy. I tend to lean more towards the aspect of, yes, they are indeed the souls of those that have passed, but they exist almost on a totally different plane of existence. Their surroundings probably look exactly the same to them as they did when they passed, so we ourselves probably look like ghosts to them. So, if you think about it, both sides in the equation are equally confused...and more than likely a little freaked out, too.
Urban Legends have always been a big fascination with me. Those certain stories you hear about incidents happening in towns all across America, in which the validity of the cases can either be 100% truth, or total fabrication congered up solely to produce one hell of an interesting story to get quite the rise out of people. Whatever the case may be, it's always been interesting to me, and I love hearing them.
The Macabre is best described as "... a quality of certain artistic or literary works, characterized by a grim or ghastly atmosphere. In these works, there is an emphasis on the details and symbols of death. Macabre themes are often preoccupations in the Goth subculture." That may not really sound of much interest to you, but it is to me. Granted, you're also reading a Horror blog, so maybe that does interest you. If so... I like you.
Something else I have always been fascinated with was the mysterious world of Criminal Psychology, based mainly in the world of Serial Killers. To get a little more into it I'd say it all comes down to the aspects which really make you question how their minds work, what makes them tick, and how can someone go about life, living in society coming off as a completely normal individual...while still being able to live this other life? Ever since I could remember I have been fascinated with this, even recalling watching shows on A&E and CourtTV such as Cold Case Files, American Justice, Forensic Files, City Confidential, etc. It has always been of high interest to me, and is actually #3 on my list for Dream jobs (#1 being a film maker, while #2 is an Art teacher.)
Well, anyway, I hope you found this entry a little insightful in some way. I hope this doesn't make me seem like some crazy Horror crazed whackadoodle, because...I'm not.
