Phones not working. Strange noises.

Things have taken a turn for the worse today. Last night passed without incident, but dawn did not bring the usual level of daylight. All day we have been existing morosely beneath a shifting blanket of dark cloud. It reminds me of the weird reflected light which one experiences during a solar eclipse. A fitful wind, seemingly wearied and distressed by the strange climatic conditions, tugs at the flowering shrubs and whips through the unkempt lawns of this misbegotten manor house.
We have kept all the lights burning in the house, and even so the gloom is palpable. The other guests took a break from their schedule and attempted to watch the television. However, no picture appeared, just a fuzzed mirage of indefinable figures and a horrible sound that was reminiscent of tortured screaming. Shortly afterwards we discovered that our telephones, both landline and portable, had ceased to function.
I had intended to return to my home tomorrow, as my bicycle is unaffected by the misfortunes which have now been visited upon almost every mechanical contraption here. The cars will not start, the washing machine and tumbledryer have packed up, and the cooker will not cook.
The monk has not been seen again.
One of the lower rooms is now host to strange aural phenomena; snatches of commentary, bleeps, repetitive thuds and a mournful wailing.
We will attempt to leave tomorrow, and intend to return on Monday, rested. I will try to write more later, as the icy temperature in here makes typing difficult.

the roof is leaking through the light fixture and the canal is spilling over on to the road. back home it's been the worst drought in 17 years. waging a daily war. captive is subdued, listless.

if the phone lines are down, the cars won't start, and the tele is not coming in, how come your computer still works? why do you suppose that would be?

A good point. I will consult google for possible reasons for this bizarre anomaly. Then, I will attempt to sleep. One of the musicians has vowed to patrol the wood-panelled corridors with a digital camera.

hello jack selby.. nice to see you have a regular connection in frim frimley i know essex isnt the best place for technoligy... hows your hand by the way? the last time u vbloged it didnt look so well
did u get my e-mail just wondering as i havent heard back its okay if u dont answer though i know time is of essence for u.. i do have to say i have noticed a strange familiur look to you you almostl look like u could be related to the greenwood family ... but i doubt it since i dont think they moved to cyprus?

lexden perhaps u should ask for a rental? perhaps somhing more reliable..

im not sure if this works but try talking to the ghost in the haunted house perhaps it can somehow show u that it means no harm.. or the other way around.. i own a cottage about an hour from here on the lake it was built in 18 somthing.. i dont remember.. anyway i would go there alone for the summer the first year i owned this cottage on the lake i had the strangest feeling in my stomic that somthing was watching me.. it was really bothering me.. not to mention i was scared of the bacement even seeing the door to the basment gave me the willys
then one night as i was scared to even leave the bed with the sheets all covered around me and my thumb pressed down hard on the keychain light i had ...i started talking to the ghost telling it how it made me feel inside how it made me scared to even leave the bed... before i knew it i was waking up in the morning... but the house felt clean it felt like i was all by my lonsome with nothing watching me.. like the house was spirit free

perhaps this thing that was in the cottage felt bad for me.. perhaps it raped me and ran into the woods to hide from the man.. i guess i will never know

but till this day i dont feel scared anymore.. not even one bit..

perhaps its still their just leaving me alone

the point is be friendly with your feelings

nothing can bring peace..... but yourself

night the two of you hope the rest of your week goes well and ur weekend is full of happiness

you are to return? my my my that's a brave move. perhaps it's the curiosity that is to kill the cat. ghosts can't harm you can they? unless it's a poltergeist then you are in trouble. i would hide under the stairs.

But if all this is true I strongly suggest you choose another house.

Have you tried playing something scary to scare those damned ghosts

ok ok. if this is, in fact, the true and only mr. donwood (though i am rather skeptical on this matter), i must state earnestly that you are the reason why i pulled out of the creative void i was in for the last eight years or so. you have inspired me to paint and draw and the like. and radiohead has inspired me to make music. for that, no gratitude can ever be achieved to illustrate how very important that was for my life. if the only people i share my art with is my friends and family, that is enough to fill my remaining life with joy. thank you.

please expect a gushing fan letter promptly.

i know, radiocoocoo. the last time i got like this, morrissey had to get that restraining order. couldn't he see that i was only trying to show him how much his music affected my life? so what if i sent him 53 letters in two months and called him five times a day after discovering his phone number. you would not believe how upset he was after i would try to talk to him at the various restaurants and stores he visited. oh well. as long as i stay 500 yards from him and send him no more letters, i will be able to stay out of trouble. i can now spend more time thinking about stanley. i hope he likes all the letters i've written and the drawings i made of the two of us.

i dont know who stanley is.. but if i were him i would be scared..

lexden watch out ... "rubs your head for good luck"

maybe it's peeves. poltergeist rather than ghost?
in any case it's very interesting reading, particularly the inconsistencies. is that oversight, a case of fiction being stranger than the truth or perhaps a truly bizzare situation? i very much look forward to the next installment. i haven't been so captivated in some time.

then shut the fuck up. stop posting stupid comments. it's annoying. I don't care who's blog you think this is.

Just shut up and maybe there will be another post. Just keep it to yourself.

Blogger Octobreana said...

look enh, whomever you are. i MEANT maybe the presence in lexdens house was "peeves" who is a poltergeist from a book. i MEANT that maybe the presence in the house was a poltergeist rather than a ghost. i wasn't making any sort of comment as to lexdens identity as i really don't give a fuck who it is. so why don't YOU shut the fuck up and read something thoroughly before getting nasty.

radiocoocoo - was that post for me or for enh? i don't care in particular who lexdon is but i am interested in his/her blog. maybe i'll just keep my comments to myself they don't seem to be going over well.

i must say.....i love nothing more than a ghost story. however, in the presence of such energy, i cower away like scooby and!

art affected by such a thing must be of the most interesting nature. something i hope to view or experience. images are able to be posted here. maybe i will post in my new little blog my doodles and thoughts that were influenced by non-humanoid entities/energy.
