Horror of Football

HorrorFootballHey, boys and ghouls. I’ve been away for a while but don’t worry, horrific things in real life haven’t stopped happening.

Today I’d like to talk about sports. First, let me say that I love sports. I don’t want anyone to confuse my explanation of Horror in sports as my condemning them. That isn’t the case. However, I do get a little testy when people are oblivious.

Now, I knew from a young age that sports weren’t the Norman Rockwell/High Class – chess matches that everyone wants to believe they are.

Mrs. Calamity’s Cherry Cornbread Coffee Casserole and Other Reasons to Hate Plastic-Wrap

Plastic Death Wrap

Plastic Death Wrap

Am I the only one who thinks that Dante missed out when he didn’t put plastic wrap as part of the nine circles of hell?

I’m just going off my past experiences here, and it seems to me that food wrapped in flimsy plastic instead of contained in proper Tupperware always tastes like warmed over rabbit turds.

Food underneath that clear sheet of death never looks appealing. It often reminds me more of a mutated ancient straight from the bowels of Lovecraftian fiction. Click HERE to read the rest of the article.

Horror Is Attractive

Horror Is Attractive

Let’s face it. We find horror attractive.

Take the oft used example of the car wreck on the side of the road.

Why do we look? Is it because we hope to see nothing? That’s doubtful as the mere act of looking implies that we want to see something.

In truth we are a curious race and while most people would say curiosity is the only reason for playing peek-a-boo with disaster, I do not.

Curious? For what?

What is that curiosity hoping to find?

THE END…….Of Samson

The Horror of Samson

The Horror of Samson

Bible Horror study.


And as the title suggests, the end of Samson in particular.

Towards the end of the story, Samson is caught by his enemies (with the help of his own wife), who blind him. They keep him alive in his weakend and crippled state to laugh at his disgrace. Samson makes a final plea for God to allow him strength enough to kill his enemies. God grants this request and Samson knocks over some pillars bringing down the building around everyone; himself included.

This, I’m afraid, is a bit of a touchy subject. A lot of people miss the last bit of this story. They skim over it and don’t even notice what really happened here.

Death Day Cake

Death Day Cake

My birthday is fast approaching and as I get older I tend to think more long term.

For most everyone who is not having a birthday, it is a day to celebrate the mere fact that a friend or loved one was born. They are saying they are glad you exist. That’s a great thing and possibly one of the furthest things from Horror you could imagine.

Yet, I dare say that to the person having the birthday, it often means none of that.

Horror Kitten

That’s right. I went there.

That cute cuddly cat could have rabies. Imagine it’s just waiting for you to get close enough, so it can go all Cujo on you.

Not so cute now, huh?

It makes me think about what other things Horror is like. And why.

A friend and I, whom I respect a great deal, were having a conversation. It revolved around the roll of entertainment in a Christian life; notably the amount of “evil” acceptable in entertainment.

I’ve always been on the side of the fence that believes fiction should mimic real life, that “evil” in any story or movie must serve a purpose and that all good entertainment helps reveal a greater truth. A truth we may have known about before but that is shown to us in a more profound way.

That is not to say that all fiction or movies actually accomplish that task, but usually good stories strive for that position.
