Just a dream

Back at home it is not easy to imagine myself back at that house. I left in something of a panic, after that horrible night when I found myself naked on the lawn just before dawn. Getting home was easy, in the end; but I had beeen worried that it would somehow follow me. Nothing, so far, suggests that it has. I had to abandon this blog for a while for personal reasons, but I have just time to mention that, despite everything, I may be forced to return to that house in the woods later in the year, towards Christmas.
One thing; I have not heard from any of the others since I left. Once again I am concerned that they may - still - be at the house, staring from the windows at the skeletal trees threshing in the wind. I told them that it was imperative that they left, as agreed, on Friday afternoon, and that on no account should they remain on those malevolent premises any longer than 5.45pm. However, I admit to a degree of concern.

How very kind of you both. Unfortunately I do not need a loan or any promotional products. If you ever have any completely free money or a set of sophisticated ectoplasma-gathering machines I suggest you try elsewhere.

In any case, Halloween should be interesting for you...

advertising in the guise of friendly bloggers, dear dear me, it makes you wonder doesn't it? is anywhere actually free? i was sitting on the bus the other day, which now contains plasma screens upstairs where they loop breaking news and shiney new products.

the others may well be fine, but perhaps you should check up on them.

i don't blame you for leaving. but why, i ask, did you not leave with the others to make sure of their safety? do they know you were put in the brown room and attacked? how did you get into the brown room while asleep?
i dont think i would spend all saints eve in that house. i would remain in your safe home if i were you......or maybe i would camp under the window in a tent with a buddy.

Perhaps you were experiencing a sort of sleep terror, or maybe the owners of the house should invest in a carbon monoxide detector. I once stayed at a motel known as the lighthouse inn. It is on a huge lake. I stayed there during the most frigid two weeks I have ever experienced (-6 degrees farenheit). The lake had become an incadescent desert, with waves tirelessly attempting to stave off the onslaught. nonetheless, while trying to sleep at 3am, with a 6:30 wakeup call impending, I had a visitor. I was lying with my pillow folded around my head. My arm was pushed against my head tightly. I leapt out of bed and turned on every light. Then my breathing became very shallow. With the lights on I still felt something moving me in the bed. I think when we let the presences replace our humor with terror---that is when they can move us--to brown rooms or front lawns. Or perhaps we need only crack a window to let some of the CO escape.

here's a radiohead-related question:

what would be the best name for a project that played the music of radiohead. i know a rose by another name could never smell as sweet, but this is merely theoretical. I say "on a saturday" but my friend chachi insists "killer cars" is the winner.

Not back til December? Maybe for the best, though I'll miss hearing news.

I hope you return better prepared for the PRESENCE, and that the others are ok. Maybe the supernatural atmosphere has fed their creativity during their stay. But we wouldn't want them all, erm, eaten or something.

I hardly know but I do like plugging, plug, plug... I plug the plug and get anyone I want to do what I want... because of the connections... isn't it good the things I want are small little things that are often enjoyable and always funny.

Oh, yes your blog, right?

Hello stanley (lexden). I've rather enjoyed your harrowing account of the radiohead recording process, thus far. I'm sure the paranormal activity shrouding the forlorn manor will offer up a flotilla of ideas concerning the new album art. Inspiration is most often extracted from the most trying of situations. Although you don't know me, I've been following your work for quite some time. Forgive me if I've come off as standoffish. The computer is a novelty to me and I usually communicate through personal correspondence which I feel is infinitely more intimate. In the rare instance that you haven't already conjectured my existence, I am a woebegone, 400 year old vampire from old-world Romania. My bloodline is strong and of the most ancient lineage of the damned. I dress in exquisite Victorian clothing and pass the days brooding over a love once lost in my grandiose, disconsolate castle which is haunted by ghastly spirits. When night envelops the surrounding countryside, I make my baneful rounds, ravenously preying on the meek until my seemingly insatiable bloodlust is temporarily quelled. I graciously lap up every last drop of the crimson essence, fervently relishing the familiar metallic taste of the fluid that revitalizes my abominable existence. On particularly lonely nights, I seek out innocent virgins, casually seep into their usually unguarded rooms in vapor form and remorselessly enchant them. I then proceed to instinctually pillage their netherlips in wolf-form, while they writhe in masochistic ecstasy knowing full well that they have become the devil's concubines. Throughout the ages, I have witnessed the unfaltering degradation of soceity. Brilliant art is no longer king and the almighty dollar rules all. It has been rather difficult for a well educated, highly cultured vampire such as myself to stomach this unfortunate truth, yet in this maelstrom of mediocrity, I have become a surreptitiously savvy business tycoon. I've sucessfully cornered the real estate market and own plots of land and various establishments in a plethora of European cities, including a highly modernized blood bank in Berlin, a burgeoning dentistry practice in London, and a popular chain of brothels in Amsterdam. In fact, I recently, (and rather ironically, I might add), won a painstaking bidding war on a Florentine glass-works company specailizing in the production of finely crafted mirrors. I am planning to extend my highly lucrative enterprise by branching out into North America. With the much appreciated help of the local gypsies who exhibit undying loyalty to my cause, an insanely hefty revenue accural, and unfathomable uncanny powers (control of the weather and foul creatures, ability to morph into several loathsome forms, and superhuman strength to name a few), this should be a relatively facile task. Most consider being "undead" a cruel, forlorn, curse. I, on the otherhand, view my dark, unabashedly sinister fate as utterly titillating and I wouldn't have it any other way. I sincerely hope I haven't startled you, but from what I've gathered you've had extensive exposure to this sort of thing. Cheers.
