I feel everything quietly and intensely. It doesn't feel very nice most of the time, so to subtract from it I began scaring the ever living shit out of myself. I have been a habitual self-scarer for two or three years. I cannot explain (to a regular person) my obsessions with:

-gore (real or no)

-<3horror movies<3

-ghost stories

I will post things of this nature because so few people can be found with whom to appreciate these things in a face-to-face type of way.

I also embrace the following philosophy:

Once, I was on a gore website (which I'll provide a link to if it's requested) and an unfortunate person who had ostensibly just stumbled there somehow posted a comment accusing all the site's users of being "sick and sadistic" (which in some cases is not untrue because gore sites are absolutely littered with prejudiced people, as well as seemingly peaceful people). A white-knight of gore then accused the anonymous assailant of being ignorant, saying that the underlying purpose of making gore public is to "spread awareness" about what goes on in other countries. While I do think there's some truth to that, I also think sites like this use that as a front to justify what some of the mods do or say.

(I do not want to in any way undermine the fact that horrible things happen in less developed countries, gang related, senseless, accidental, sadistic- people overseas get killed in horrible ways every day, and in a lot of these places it goes unpunished. This, of course, is unacceptable, and some sites operate in hopes that the public simply won't be able to turn a blind eye to such things anymore.)

What I'm trying to say is, I don't want to call it anything other than what it is. I typed that url into the browser because I wanted to see a dead guy. I'd say most of the other users did too. But I digress.

I wanted to start this blog to indulge things that poor, innocent people think are sick and senseless- the same things that I think are absolutely sensational. Call me sick, I might not argue.

Although I'm simply introducing myself, I feel this post would be a spam if I didn't at least mention a horror movie. My favourite horror movie of all time is either the Shining (predictable, but classics are classics for a reason), or Cabin in the Woods (pure post modern brilliance matched perfectly with scenes that make me cringe).

If you've bothered to read this far, thanks. Maybe I'll get better at this.
