Oh wow. THANK YOU. Down the wormhole I go... https://t.co/0dL82uPdTg
I've now watched it 15 times. Not exaggerating. Frame by frame. It is perfect, self-satisfied shittiness. #Emmy https://t.co/yu6Q71tcYd
"You Pepperidge Farm ad mothefuckers!" Watching @timothycsimons rage is scarily gorgeous. Thank you, @VeepHBO.
The beautiful, clunky edit to cover him CLEARLY fucking up the swing should be taught in film classes. https://t.co/FMqc6hVbAp
Jonah's campaign ad was so hilariously awful they ran it IN FULL after tonight's @VeepHBO. Like THEY couldn't believe how great it was.

31 HORROR STORIES -- The opening paragraph of THE HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE (1959)

@ 1:00 PM

"No live organism can continue for long to exist sanely under conditions of absolute reality; even larks and katydids are supposed, by some, to dream. Hill House, not sane, stood by itself against its hills, holding darkness within; it had stood for eighty years and might stand for eighty more. Within, walls continued upright, bricks met neatly, floors were firm, and doors were sensibly shut; silence lay steadily against the wood and stone of Hill House, and whatever walked there, walked alone."

Shirley Jackson could write short stories that hung with you like great novels. She could also write paragraphs which could, alone, creep you to your toenails. THE HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE starts out that way, and never lets up. Stay with us forever, Eleanor.
