Actually I'm wrong on the film, it's not a studio piece, but a indie thing. There is a web series though

SV and I have been hunting around for a decent eating establishment somewhere near the hospital, with no luck so far, but apparently the falafel cart right in front of MSK is excellent? And it was right in front of us the whole time. So I know what I'm eating next week.

RE: Slenderman: I can't really find him creepy, either. The basic concept is sorta freaky: just some grotesque figure standing outside your window or an inhuman shadow striding past you in the twilight. But then, of course, they went ahead and ruined it with DETAILS and BACKSTORY and 4CHAN and whatever, so I have pretty much zero interest in Slenderman and his place in the horror canon.
1) Dammit Tumblr
2) In Bloomy defense, I only had 15 minutes to secure food.
3) Yeah, the current "canon" is like 40 something pages long. :/ At this point now, Slenderman rates between Homestuck and those booths that sell Meme shirts at Malls in terms of annoyance.

It's from the organization that had a table in the photo alley at AN2012. They do sales, breeding, events, outreach, etc.
I was talking about this guy.

I bought a pass for this year's AN --- I only used it once to get the artist's alley and left without checking any booths.

There's not a whole lot of content at anime cons that's in my interests :/

I like Marble Hornets alright, and TribeTwelve. It's not that any of it is outright scary, but I love me some creepypasta.

Penners I found this and thought of you:

I just get my creepypasta fix from the SCP-Foundation.

...in the daytime. When there's at least on other person in the house. And my mobile's fully charged. And I have my trusty mallet propped up against my bed.

I scare easily.

I love SCPs, but my favorites tend to be the non-creepypasta type.

Suppose I should just leave the creepypasta to the young'uns and stick to my Old Timey horror lit.

There is always a spider within 6 feet of you at almost all times.

Let's see...

Mr.Widemouth
An Egg
The Russian Sleep Experement
Candle Cove
Lone Stones
Gateway of the Mind
String Theory
Baby Dolls (child abuse trigger)

Derp there's so many I like that I can't remember the name of. Reddit No Sleep user '1000vultures' has gotten huge notoriety for his stories done in the style of himself recalling childhood events leading up to trauma. I believe he even sells books of them now. Here's a page that has them all in one if you keep scrolling down the next story loads up:
http://www.scribd.com/doc/68546802/1000-Vultures-Series

Mr.Creepypasta on youtube has the first three or so stories up on his channel if you want to hear them audio-book style. For reals, these where insanely good.

Warning/Spoiler

SPOILER: (highlight to read)

The stories do involve pedophilia,kidnapping, implied child-abuse and implied rape at the very end. It's not done in a graphic manner, and comes to a head at the very end of the series.

There are spiders who live in your eyelashes, home boy.

...I don't know where that "homeboy" came from.

My mom got clothes for the wake/funeral. I got a new skirt and light weight open weave black sweater to wear to the wake. (I froze at the same funeral home last summer).
The skirt is not for the wake but I fell in love with it. It's This:

But it's a lot darker and more blended.
