You know that thing where you try to make sense of a topic, and it simply refuses to click?
I have that about certain corners of the internet, specifically the weird ones where creepypasta, ARGs and Cursed Images are formed.
I also have that about teenagers.
So what better way to try to make sense of it all than to combine those things, by asking my 17-year-old daughter to join me and explain her mysterious online life?? I’m not sure I succeed in applying rational thought to much here, but I manage to sneak in a word about the Slenderman assault in Wisconsin, and groupthink, and even the Salem Witch Hysteria.
I feel a little… mush-brained… after editing this one, but I hope it makes sense to one or two of you out there. There are bigger, more organized things are in the works, but I didn’t want you to have to wait for those things.
Promos this week from Martinis and the Macabre and Best Forevers.
