Seriously, the level of detail on tonight's Ferris Bueller episode of @TheGoldbergsABC is at @alyankovic early-80s video level.
2 1/2 HOURS, WEST COAST. I envy you getting to see tonight's episode of @TheGoldbergsABC for the first time.
Knowing Bill O'Reilly's set to go meth-lab-explosion-angry trying to salvage his shitty career is my Christmas. #GoBillzilla

31 HORROR STORIES -- "Born of Man and Woman" (1950)

@ 12:00 PM

There were so many Richard Matheson stories I wanted to choose. "The Distributor", for instance.

And choosing this, his first published story, is in no way an insult to his later work. But it's so rare when a writer knocks one out of the park his first time at bat, I had to celebrate it.

Not that "Born of Man and Woman" is going to leave you in a celebratory mood. It's told from the point of view of a monstrous baby kept chained in its parents' basement, and reads like a diary scribbled in the dust of a concrete floor. It becomes clear, as the story grinds on, that the "baby" is not only deformed, brain-damaged and sick, but it's also beginning to manifest superhuman powers. And, being starved for any kind of love, it's learning to hate.
