Wooden Grave Markers

Ever wonder why there are so many empty spaces in old cemeteries?

Michael Emery, who has spent two decades documenting historic cemeteries throughout southeastern and central Pennsylvania, has concluded that these seemingly empty spaces were once occupied by temporary wooden markers, most of which have rotted away long ago. While some of these were replaced by formal tombstones or markers of modest fieldstones, others were never replaced at all, leaving empty gaps among the oldest memorials in historic graveyards.

Shadow's Edge

A now-defunct haunted attraction in Omaha.  Not many prop photos on their social media, but I thought this one was pretty neat.

Death's Grip

The rate of preventable injury-related deaths occurring in or around the home has increased 253% since 1999. This rapid increase has erased the progress made over many decades. Between 1928 and 1990, the death rate decreased 65%, from 25 per 100,000 population in 1928 to 8.6 in 1990. In the last 10 years, the death rate has increased 86% while the number of deaths increased 96%. This increase in deaths is largely driven by increases in unintentional poisonings and falls.

Fire Goooood

Broke in our new Halloween fire pit last night after work.  

The maiden voyage was a blissful success... and seeing glowing bats and a jacko face smiling fire wasn't too shabby either.

A neat IG account featuring witches in children's literature.

Trailer: Psycho III

One of my favorite horror films.  Beautifully directed by Anthony Perkins himself.  

And always perfect for Mother's Day.

The fan trailer below captures the feel of the film if you haven't seen it.
