This post is part of Bloggers Dressed In Blood, where we celebrate the dark and twisted all through the month of October. I co-host with Kate aka Midnight Book Girl and Danielle from Mercurial Musings. This year we are giving away a $50 dollar gift card to Amazon or Barnes & Noble (or 3 books of choice up to US$50 from TBD for international readers). Check out the main page to get more information and join in the fun! And, for those of you entering the giveaway, the secret code is now…PRINCESS. This code will be valid until Monday, when you can get a new secret code at Mercurial Musings.
I meant to have a scary review today, but I’ve been in a bit of a reading slump. It’s October and yet I can’t settle on anything that isn’t cute. I KNOW. What is this madness? But I have picked up a cool werewolf book and should have something creeptastic next week. For now I thought I’d share the scary non-books I’ve been indulging in lately.
I’m not going to lie. The whole reason I am watching this show is because the fans are crazy on tumblr. They are also hilarious and I only get half the jokes. I don’t like only getting half the jokes. But there are beasts and violence every episode. It’s been perfect for the rainy weather we’ve had this week. I just started the second season and the show has just launched the brothers into a place where they question if what they are doing is right. Moral ambiguity is one of my favorite things ever and the Winchesters aren’t faced with easy choices. I also think this show has quite a bit of subtext. And I love subtext.
This was recommended to me by the friend who recommended Doctor Who. Doctor Who was obviously an excellent recommendation, so I’m less hesitant to trust her than I was at the beginning of our friendship. Welcome to Night Vale was described to me as NPR for The Twilight Zone and that is a decent description. It’s a radio show for the town of Night Vale where there are color coded helicopters, magical beings in hoods, and a secret police. Among other very strange things. It is strange. It is very, very strange. But it is also entertaining and a little funny. This is a free podcast and I’ll listen to a few more episodes before I decide whether or not I like it. Right now I’m still saying WTF every fifteen to thirty seconds.
Any suggestions for scary things I might love?
