Song of the day: I Drove All Night – Celine Dion

You’d might think that I’ve learned my lesson to stay the hell out of Best Buy, but if you were to think that, you’d be an idiot. I don’t know what it is, but everytime I go in there, I end up spending way more than I intended. All self0-control goes right out the window. It’s like putting a kid in a candy store… except every piece of candy costs $10 or more.

It all started with the countdown to the Simpsons Season 3 coming out on DVD. I, of course, had to have it, and knowing that the cheapest place was Best Buy, I made the trek. I also forgot that I’ve been wanting Spirited Away (possibly my all-time favorite animated film), and little did I know that the Family Guy Seasons 1 and 2 Set was also out.

What could I do but buy all three? I had to, I tell you. I had to.

At this point you’re not likely surprised at my lack of self-control in the relative Toys ‘R’ Us for adults, but more likely you’re stunned that for the second day in a row I’ve made an entry in my blog. Yes, I have a day off, and I’ve been forbidden from destroying any more of the kitchen (remodel, you see), since it is to be a team project, and Peterbuilt is out with the mother.

I am supposed to be working on a short illustrated story for a couple of kids, but “feh” I say to that.

“Feh.”

Not what I’ll be saying when PB comes home and sees my lack of progress, I can tell you that.

So on that note, I’ll spring my second surprise of the day. Remember way back when I promised to show you the photos from my last project? Think hard, I know it was a while ago. Well, here they are.

Tales from the Reverend Bob:
Mommy, will my doll go to Heaven?
It’s strange how a lack of color changes things. I would never have imagined that this story could be told so clearly when I captured it. But when I stared down at the black and white proofs I held in my hands one day, there could be no mistake… these dolls did not indeed go to Heaven. They will continue to cry, decay, and beckon. Their soft whispers can almost be heard, cursing the children who once owned them.

Tales from the Reverend Bob:
In the court of the Elephant King
Wanting to add a little brevity to the stories I was capturing, I decided to include this one. The comic appearance of the characters is light hearted and entertaining. The snapshot feel of these scenes also lifts the mood, making us simply enjoy what might be going on rather than wonder about the meaning of it all.

Holy shit.

Okay, so I’ve been a horror junkie since I was about 4 years old. At this point in my life, I’ve subjected myself to a lot of spooky stuff.

Do you have any idea how difficult it is to scare the hell outta me anymore?

Apparently, you do!
