It's happening, Northern Virginia. IT'S HAPPENING. See you on August 19th! These tickets are going...going... https://t.co/ZekNmk8cy1
Have to cancel my 8/6 Maui shows -- too much of a scaredy-cat with the storm & the winds & the maybe-crashing. Re-booking now. Stay tuned!
Every American should go into an alley, mourn intensely for 5 minutes & 20 seconds, then put on sunglasses and walk away. #RIPRoddy
Hey Maui! I'm at The Castle Theatre next Thursday! Here's a link for the last remaining tickets: http://t.co/tiNH2FKO51

31 HORROR STORIES -- "The Boarded Window" (1906)

@ 1:00 PM

Ambrose Bierce. His "An Inhabitant of Carcosa" got H.P. Lovecraft's blood a-boiling. Being the Ramones to the whole Cthulhu Mythos alone gets him on this list. But, again, he's got so many to choose from.

Fuck it, I'm choosing this. And all because of the last two sentences. It's one thing to have Bierce's gift for casually describing horror head-on (a favorite: "A man though naked may be dressed in rags", describing a hideously mutilated corpse). Here, he tells a folksy, outdoors-y tale of the frontier. Nothing seems all too horrible -- until those last...two...sentences.
