If you need to be mean, be mean to me
I can take it and put it inside of me
If your hands need to break more than trinkets in your room
You can lean on my arm as you break my heart

I have been listening to this song religiously for the past few weeks. 

Today I was reading one of my favorite blogs and I literally thought “I want to write for this blog” and I swear to god I just got an email today from the blog soliciting me for writing.

I am magic.

Bye. 

- John Carpenter re: The Thing’s music + over-scoring today
Although sometimes I like when horror films are over-scored. Like The Conjuring had a lot of problems but I think it has a great, “we’ll tell you exactly when the scares are” score. I loved that ridiculous orchestral score in Shutter Island because an over the top, gothic film like that deserves it. I don’t know if those scores are “Mickey Mouse-ing” per say, but they are certainly a deviation from that ’70s-’80s minimalism Carpenter references here.

A 15th century double-sided portrait painted presumably at the time of the sitters’ marriage. On the front: the couple young and alive, on the back: the couple’s rotting corpses covered in toads and snakes. This front is titled “The Young Couple” at the Cleveland Museum of Art, the now unhinged back called “The Dead Lovers” is in Strasbourg. On each side there is an inscription: “We will give ourselves up to worldly joy…We have lost eternal life.”
CUTE, RIGHT?
