Relief to be away. Determined to return.

Leaving the house was not as simple as I expected. Late on Thursday night myself and one of the other guests attempted to photograph the PRESCENCE; this was an error. Problems started in the dining room, which is below the Brown Room (where the PRESCENCE was first noticed). After the truly bizarre discovery that my trusty Pentax K1000 would not function whilst my companion's Canon Powershot S70 did, we realised that it is only digital technology that is not affected by the PRESCENCE.
Emboldened by this discovery, we returned after fetching the video camera.
Something happened. We do not know what. But it was as if the continuity of the evening had been tampered with. When we returned, the dining room was... different. Chairs had been moved, the table had been cleared, and the heavy velvet drapes pulled in front of the dark windows. Candles guttered in an unfelt draught.
Heedless, we photographed and filmed, then retreated to the safer part of the buildings, where we looked at our footage. It was truly chilling. On film, the chairs had NOT been moved, the table reamined laden with the remains of our earlier repast, and the windows loomed blackly, uncovered by curtains. Most horrifyingly, however, were the two figures on film in that room: photographing, filming, whispering to each other.
We had somehow filmed and photographed our own (alternate) futures. We decided to get very, very drunk.
I cannot write any more at the moment.

lol...nascar wrecks.

at this point, lexden, i would advise you and your friends to call in an exorcist, shaman, or a wiccan something-or-other to expel whatever this house holds. i would hate to see your psyche hacked to bits like you were a cast member of The Shining. with your return, bring a supply of bells, sage....and maybe a bit of holy water...to ward of the negative energy.

please keep the posts coming.....i'm curious to see what happens on All Souls Day, if your visit continues til then.

I'm not spam, by the way. It's a link to thoughts on whether vampires would photograph on digital cameras or not.

I want to see pictures and videos. If it is possible you maybe could take some photos and post them or something :) I want to see that brown room... how brown can a room be. Ooh perhaps it is brown and orange like the old rooms in the 80's...well at least my kitchen was like that.

fortunately for me, your choice of template and the difference in visual acuity in my left and right eye give the posts a ghostly 3D effect. nature's little wonders.

now, if only the blog could sing.

I could only watch 20 seconds of it but THATS THE MOST SICKENING THING IVE EVER SEEN IN MY LIFE. the way the camera zoomed in on the sweetest looking dogs face in a truck and then showed a guy droppping cages of living dogs high off of the truck on to the ground far below. HOW ON EARTH COULD ANYONE POSSIBLY DO THAT?! do you have to be treated like that as a child to be able to do that? words cannot express how sickening that is. it makes me feel guilty to be a part of the human race.
As much as im opposed to violence, if i could, i would chase after those people and gun them down.

i feel weird being positive after watching that video but i love your blog so much lexden. youre so creative.

thank you for the link rex, but i just think there should be a warning for the weak stomached. While I feel exposing this sort of thing to the public is most definitely necessary, just think a little heads-up is in order. Know what I mean?

fuck fur.

if its an undercover peta video its always gonna be gut wrenching

3:05 PM  
Blogger radiocoocoo said...

sorry warning dont watch that video cause it has dogs being murdered in it

the sadest parts about it is


alot of those dogs still have the dog tags on their colars from being stolen from their homes
its possible this is the worst video i seen ever

but please visit jcruel.com for more information sign the petitions.. and read about the things u can do to stop it or at least get better guidelines for the fur trade industry

yeah, i clicked off before the video started. not that i wanted to ignore what was happening, but because my empathy for animals is so strong, i would not have been able to sleep for weeks. the image of the violence would have been seared into my eyes like a laser. having seen such videos from peta at 13, i knew what i was in for. and it disgusts me. my grandparents dog and cats were stolen from them. they always believed, and there was evidence toward, someone who took them for experimentation or the like. absolutely sickening. i'd say that humans deserve any of the wrath that is to find them. war, slavery, slaughtering those "lesser" than them....it is all criminal in the most holy of ways.

At this point you should go to the library and read old newspapers looking for stories of the village.

It's time to change your camera ;)
