The annual event I look so foward to...when my desk becomes a tourist attraction and small minds try to figure me out, as I sit here wishing they would be shipped off to a Nike factory.
|I kinda wish they were more like these kids.|

Incredibly spooky with some nightmarish images of victims of this strange phenomenon (or peculiar accident). The comments by fire investigators were the creepiest.

Of the Spontaneous Human variety.
I spent way too many hours worrying about bursting into flames when I was a kid. And I blame that photo. And that foot. Over the years I always kept an ear out for any proof that there's simply no such thing. That these people were human wicks and their body fat enabled their bodies to burn holes through floors and leave the rest of the room or house undamaged. But nothing ever seemed entirely persuasive.

Last The Fog post for the day.
It's my favorite track from the soundtrack - Reel 9. It will forever remind me of sitting on the cold cement steps of my parents' porch, handing out candy dressed as Mr. Michael Audrey Myers. I've written about it before, but there's a strange and peaceful solitude when sitting alone on Halloween night under a latex mask, in charge of a candy bowl. A tiny slice of weird. Like putting on a one-man show where you don't say a word. You let the music and the fog machine and the lighting and the mache monsters do that for you.
Happy Birthday, Antonio Bay.
This is Rot, signing off.

Currently listening to The End of Summer's playlist from last year's THE FOG tribute. Every time I watch that film, I always say "I'D listen to that station!" so finding a KAB playlist was an absolute gas.

For anyone who has a blogger account and is experiencing that horrid situation where you upload a JPEG image and it turns light and distorted and pixelated, the solution is related to Google Plus' auto-enhance feature for photos.
Click on Home > Settings.
Scroll to the "Auto Enhance" section.
Uncheck "Automatically Enhance New Photos."
That should fix this problem.
For the past few months, I've been copying all images which I've put on my blog into Photoshop or Paint and saving them as a PNG file. And that was getting really old.

Bumped this blog entry up.

Was just thinking about something weird that happened to us as kids and put it there.
