The Creative and Realism of Fictional Towns

Posted on September 20, 2019 at 8:20 PM Comments comments (0)

"You've seen them. Little towns, tucked away far from the main roads. You've seen them, but have you thought about them? What do the people in these places do? Why do they stay?" -Rod Serling's opening narration in "The Twilight Zone" episode, "Valley of the Shadow"



Fictional towns. We read about and see them in countless movies and television shows. Like the quote above that asks about s...

The Horrific Facts and Truth About Hades

Posted on September 20, 2019 at 8:05 PM Comments comments (0)

Hades. In ancient Greek mythology, he is the god of the dead and the king of the underworld. Now I could give you a rundown of who he was and who he's connected to in Greek mythology but that's not what this piece is about. I want to give you the gruesome side of Hades, the reason he is the god of the dead and king of the underworld. So let's skip the history textbook descriptions and eighth-grade project portrayals and get to the good stuff, shall we?

A Tour of the Past: Old Haunted Buildings

Posted on July 3, 2019 at 3:40 PM Comments comments (0)

Some buildings history can be seen on the outside from its age, abandonment or old rustic look. However, for some buildings the history and the past isn’t always seen on the exterior but rather the interior and its history still lingers thinking it’s the past. Some buildings histories have haunted pasts, ghosts or beings who stay inside the building haunting it because they either don’t want others there or they simply don’t know things h...

Exploring the Unknown: Abandoned Places

Posted on July 2, 2019 at 8:00 PM Comments comments (0)

Abandoned places. They fascinate, scare, and baffle us. They make us curious and wonder just what dwells inside and why it ever became abandoned. This is exactly what exploring the unknown is and while some don’t care for it, exploring abandoned places has taken on a life of its own and has become quite popular over the last few years. Urban exploring is going out and exploring man-made structures, especially abandoned buildings and areas not generally open to the publ...

Why Wax Is A Creepy Horror Theme

Posted on June 30, 2019 at 11:40 PM Comments comments (0)

There are many horror themes and tropes out there. It could be monsters and haunted houses to skulls and psycho killers, but then there's the simple normal everyday things we put into horror to make it scarier than it really is. In this case, I'm talking about wax. Now, what makes wax scary right off the bat? Well, nothing unless you're afraid of burning yourself with hot wax. However, a deeper examination shows that not only is wax used in the horror world as a...

Poetry: A Way of Expression

Posted on June 29, 2019 at 12:00 AM Comments comments (0)

Poetry. If you've read my previous articles on it and know a little about me then you know I'm a believer in the world of poetry. This time I'm not going o convince you to give poetry a chance but explain why poetry is one of the true ways of expressing one's self. Poetry has been written for over hundreds and hundreds of years and it has served as a unique writing form but also a way in which a person can express themselves. It gives them a voice they either didn't know they h...

Why You Should Give Poetry A Chance

Posted on June 27, 2019 at 11:35 PM Comments comments (0)

If you already like poetry then this isn't for you. If you don't like poetry or think it's out of date or doesn't do anything for you then pay attention as I will try to convince you to give it a try. First of all, poetry isn't dead it is very much alive. I'm not talking about every emo kid out there who writes about darkness, I'm not talking about every soldier who returns from war to write above the pain they are feeling, I'm talking about creative off the top of the noggin a...

Why Was Killing the Normal?

Posted on May 28, 2019 at 4:25 PM Comments comments (0)

You ever watch or read a western where a guy looks at another guy wrong and before you know it one of them’s dead? Or a guy rides into town and his sole mission is to kill as many men as he can or kill the fastest gunslinger in town? Why? Why is this normal? Just why exactly was killing as normal as waking up in the morning? I mean sure, people are killed everyday but back in the Wild West days it was just unnatural and a bit odd and unsettling if you real...
