Life is falling to pieces: an illustrated journal

Life tends to suck if you let it. An illustrated journal about the way I've totally screwed up my life and (hopefully) how I'm going to get myself out of it.

Unrelated realization: Holy Crap! I'm almost out of pages in my sketch journal! (Home of teh blog, circa Entry #10) Thats alot of freaking pages! I'm gonna have to invest in another one of these things.. that or just switch completely over to complementry drug-rep post-its. :/ Maybe I should stop posting so many double pages and conserve.

Listen, about Halloween, one of us is throwing a party next year. Let's make sure to get back to each other on 10/1/07 and we'll be sure to attend. Pact?

Next halloween you could drape something potentially incriminating over the Empire State Building, like an aborted fetus or something. You'd be the stuff of legend.

macoosh, it probably was the same one ^^

ultimately, while neither attraction scared me, I thought the haunted house was better than the cornfield. see, the cornfield could have been really cool, but it was too obvious when they were coming cause you could sorta see/hear them up ahead. it was pretty funny thought, cause when you first entered into the maze, you gotta walk through this trailer filed with fog and strobelights...which is cool and all, but then i guess someone lost a cell phone cause this guy comes walking past us in the opposite drection asking us if we've seen one... then turned around and came back after us with his chainsaw. kinda ruined the effect there dude! it was pretty funny though.

like i said, the haunted house was much better. there were alot more people there dressed in black to jump out at you (not that we werent good at spotting them) and they would appear right next to you out of nowhere. given, i've always found those kinds of things silly and cheesy, but what made the haunted house the better of the two was two things: a) at one point you walk down this pitch black hallway that actually just got smaller and smaller so if you had clostraphobia you'd probably piss yourself as you squeezed through, and b) they had this spinning tunnel thing that you usually find in those cheapy haunted houses in traveling carnavals, only instead of having to walk through the spinning tube, the painted it with neon dots that reflected in the black lights and built a bridge straight through it. can i tell you what kind of extreme vertigo and loss of balance we experienced going through there! it was so freaking cool.

it was the same one!!! i remember now that we went b/c we had friends working it (actors, what can ya do :)) and yea, i agree w/ everything. the only time i freaked out was the time the guy chainsawed me b/c we really did NOT hear him coming and all of a sudden he threw the chainsaw on right over my ear and i FLIPPED OUT. and, he was wearing a mike meyers mask which just a
added to the effect of giving me a heart attack:)

i remember tho, the haunted house was pretty cool! i have the best pic of that night of the bunch of us being "afraid of our tickets" (actors, what can ya do :)) priceless. :)

yay, thanks for the walk down chainsaw memory lane!

I recently heard of a thing called Hell House that churches do as an alternative to the Satan worshiping version of Halloween that we are all accustomed to. There are a series of rooms with gay weddings, child molestations, liberal politicians, family violence, and other scenarios that are apparently intended to scare you into the arms of the “Laured.” Very bizarre.

Yeah, I was reading about them too. They're apparently a hit in the Bible Belt, but made some news here when a non-religious theatre group in Brooklyn put on a serious rendition of it for Halloween.

Apparently they're all sorts of fucked up. Like a rape victim that contemplates suicide, abortion, etc. Also, supposidely you dont just walk through it, but have a devil tour-guide leading you through the sins. I don't know if they did this in the Brooklyn show, but typically at the end there's a big Christian Ho-Down.

You never fail to amaze. Without question one truly innovative thing on the internet let alone the blogosphere.

I have a couple of referrals from you in terms of link exchanges. You deserve the largest possible audience.
