    Stupid dad. Everyone knows that monsters are befuddled by door knobs. And blankets.

    Gah! Why tf did I watch that?! Why did you link to it?! (Also: admittedly closed my eyes as he plunged from the Eiffel Tower.)

    Some of my favorite songs growing up were about murder: “Lizzie Borden” by the Chad Mitchell Trio, “Frankie & Johnny” by Guy Lumbardo, “Tom Dooley” by the Kingston Trio, “the Fields of Athenry” by the Dubliners, “the Night That the Lights Went Out in Georgia” and “Bobby” by Reba McEntire They’re just so heartfelt. That’s one of the things I love about country, too—they sign stories about the human condition. I actually think that these songs made me realize that ethics are situational. Man, there are so many country songs about justifiable homicide…

    Wishing I’d had Murderpedia a while back. All of those reports on people I thought were interesting seem so dull now…

    I bought Gone Home, because it sounded so interesting. It costs $20, and I beat it within 1 hour. I am not a great gamer by any means, so this game was ridiculously easy. The reviews are misleading, because this game was not good. Don’t buy it! All you do is walk around find 2 combinations, and unlock 2 doors, and then it ends.

    Oh, Gone Home was soooo good! The story was wonderful! It’s one of my favorite games ever made!
