Controversial Album Covers X (Pt. 1)

Yes everyone, I am back. I thought this was going to be a short year, but I managed to pull through. Let’s see how this works. I’m doing something a little bit different this year. I couldn’t put them in order this time, so they will go in order of file name that I saved them as. So, here goes…

Year: 1993

Dismember: Indecent and Obscene


The Problem: Looking at grindcore, gorecore, and death metal album covers, the bright red blood and graphic effects can become almost passé. This 1993 album cover from Dismember is decidedly less shocking than some of the other entries on this list (it’s clearly not real gore, for one), but it’s garishness is actually reminiscent of Dario Argento’s seminal gothic giallo film Suspiria, so it deserves a mention.

My Take: That just looks so painful. Looking at makes me wince.

City Lounge: Berlin (Book Three, Chapter Fourteen: Stephanie’s Boyfriend)

Chapter Fourteen: Stephanie’s Boyfriend:

As we were cleaning and diving up Stephanie’s junk, I hear her phone ringing.

“Stephanie!” I shouted from her room. “Your phone’s ringing!”

“Okay!” she said. I looked at her phone charging on the nightstand. When I caught a glimpse of the name I got puzzled. Who’s Sugar Bear Brown? I looked up when Stephanie burst through the door. I stepped aside as she picked up her phone.

“Hello?” she asked. “Babe! How have you been?” I watched as she moved around in the spot where she had her phone charging. Wait… Does Stephanie have a boyfriend now? When did this happen? Who was he? Why hadn’t she said anything? Did her troupe know? More

Itching to Play Sims Again

I haven’t been playing much Sims 4 lately due to going overtime with my writing. Last week was the worst. I would just run out of time. I don’t know what happened. I would have to push myself to being up until three in the morning. I do not like this. I only got to play my game on Saturday and Sunday. Maybe this week will be different.

So far, I have almost all of my work done. Tomorrow will probably be a short day. I am still watching Asian horror films and reviewing them. I’ll be done with a story tomorrow. And then I will be done with another story in ten days. Wish me luck.  Meanwhile, you can…

Autumn is Here

Summer is officially over. Autumn is now here. Time for the pumpkins, Halloween, all things horror, Thanksgiving, and food to rain down upon us. Put away your summer clothes and get out your hoodies. I will get out my winter stuff in a few weeks. I also have some things to work on as well.

October will be the time I let loose with the horror on my Wasteland Project. Plus, I will be doing some romantic fluff pieces as well. I have some plans for Halloween. Again, I will be doing Asian Horror month. Look forward to that. LGBT Scream is about to wrap up on Sunday. Brace yourselves for an active fall. For now…

City Lounge: Berlin (Book Three, Chapter Thirteen: Dividing and Cleaning)

Chapter Thirteen: Dividing and Cleaning:

I didn’t have hopes on the acting troupe to clean up Stephanie’s apartment. But, they were helpful will clearing out everything she had been hoarding. I didn’t expect them to come over right away. I looked up when I heard the doorbell ring.

“I’ll get it!” Stephanie said. She leapt up and hurried over to the door. I looked up in time to see her opening the door to her acting troupe. My jaw dropped.

“Hello, Garth!” she said.

“Hey,” he said. “How’s it been?”

“Oh, we’re just cleaning up my flat here,” Stephanie said. I came around just in time to see Garth give her an odd look. More

City Lounge: Berlin (Book Three, Chapter Twelve: Cleaning House)

Chapter Twelve: Cleaning House:

Stephanie led us back to her apartment. I wouldn’t let her stall. She kept looking over her shoulder at Sebastian and me. He had his hands stuffed into his pockets. I had my hands on my hips.

“Don’t try to pull anything on us,” I said. “Take us straight to your apartment.”

“Yeah, yeah,” she said, brushing me off.

“I mean it!” I said.

“I know!” Stephanie said back. We finally made it to her front door. She turned to Sebastian.

“Welcome to my flat of doom,” she said. “Em’s already been here today.”

“It’s a mess,” I said. Stephanie frowned at me. More

City Lounge: Berlin (Book Three, Chapter Eleven: The New Emily)

Chapter Eleven: The New Emily:

Already with my new hair I felt like a new person. I couldn’t stop looking at myself in the mirror. Stephanie had to tap me on the shoulder and clear my throat.

“I know you’re pretty,” she said. “But we’re not done.” I turned with a curious look on my face.

“Oh?” I asked.

“Wait here,” she said. Stephanie disappeared down the hall to the living room. When she came back, she had the bag in her hand.

“We just need to add the final touches,” she said. I found myself smiling.

“Yes ma’am,” I said. I sat down on the toilet and waited. Stephanie got right to work. More

City Lounge: Berlin (Book Three, Chapter Ten: Beauty Shopping)

Chapter Ten: Beauty Shopping:

Stephanie and I went out to the local shops for the rest of my makeover.

“You don’t need to wear too much makeup,” she said. “Just a small amount will do you just fine.”

“If you say so,” I said.

“I know so,” Stephanie said. She narrowed her eyes at me in front of the store. “Hm…”

“What?” I asked.

“You would look great with a darker color,” my best friend said.

“Okay…” I said.

“I mean it,” Stephanie said.

“Okay,” I said again. She grinned and took me by the arm. I followed her in without any argument. More

City Lounge: Berlin (Book Three, Chapter Nine: New Life for Emily)

Chapter Nine: New Life for Emily:

I am tired of being the good girl. The more I think about, the more I realize that I am really that boring. But, I don’t want to do anything too extreme. I’m not really that brave to try anything like that. I looked at myself in the mirror. I’ve always had a baby face. Round cheeks, small nose,  brown freckles, and a big forehead. I looked cute.

Too cute.

I don’t have to look sexy. I just want to look… more mature. I knew I was taking a gamble with this. I picked up the phone and made the call. More

I am Back

I have survived the storm.

I lost power Friday evening. I managed to finish my drafts before the battery in my laptop got too low. Power came back Saturday, but I had no internet. So, I played Sims and wrote to pass the time. The internet finally came back up on Sunday. So, I played catch up with my posting and writing. And now, here I am. I am alive, my home is okay, and my work is done.

I finished The Innocents today. The pacing is good and they didn’t reveal who the bad guys was until the season finale. I wonder what they are going to do for season two next year. Next, I will watch the movie, Threads. And then maybe check out The Conjuring. I will see how I fill. I need some new podcasts though.

Oh and I am resuming City Lounge: Berlin tomorrow. Until then…
