Good day weary popcorn snacks, I’m so close to completing a third novella/connected short story collection/thing I can almost see it in my hand.
Recently I made a post on my favourite crime/creepy info YouTube channels but was unaware of the hidden gem of Obsolete Oddity. Serial killers, creepy twins, old ladies locked in rooms for decades… if you have a spare ten minutes visit his channel and give one of his videos a watch, there’s plenty more where these came from.
The Strange Case of Emilie Sagée & her Ghostly Twin
The French Socialite Locked in her Attic for 25 Years – Blanche Monnier
The Pickled Human Flesh Seller – Karl Denke
The Booby Trapped Hoarders Mansion – The Collyer Brothers Documentary
True Unsolved Crime – The Locked Room Mystery – 1929
Merry Halloween! Ho, ho, ho! Have you been good, or bad? Reach into my sack and…I’m sorry, I seem to be delirious.
Anyway, I thought I’d share a few spooky artistic things with you on one of my favourite days.
First up is some evil popcorn from artist Katarzyna Redesiuk:
Second is blog Can of Mystery, a plethora of strange and true tales of places and people that have oddness leaking from their pores, such as Countess Bathory. Want to know more? Have a look.
Thirdly my free fiction site Legends of Odd has had an influx of spooky posts in the Guest Author section. If you’d like to be included follow the instructions on the home page.
Next up is a squirrel sticking it’s head inside a dangling novelty Halloween decoration:
Next up I’d like you to have a look at the miniture world of artist Slinkachu’s Little People, occasionally disturbing, often funny and always fascinating.
And lastly is a music video from The Cure, Lullaby:
