I loved those Alvin Schwartz books (even though those illustrations are way too scary for kids or adults or any humans really and they show up in my nightmares sometimes ugh god they are so perfect and so creepy), and my favorite was the one about the girl who always wore the ribbon around her neck. It always made me really sad for some reason, but I loved it too?
I'm going to tell you what I wish someone had told me when I was trying to be the edgiest 12-year-old: NEVER WATCH TROMA FILMS. all of them feel like they were written by a middle schooler wearing a Cannibal Corpse t-shirt who swear they're going to marry a Suicide Girl.
the internet made yeti love story sound 10000x funnier than it actually was because that was the most terrifying thing i’ve ever seen in my entire life. also i love that their filmography includes gems like Cannibal! The Musical, Killer Condom, Surf Nazis Must Die, then the english dub of My Neighbor Totoro
WHY IS TOP ALWAYS SOME KIND OF ELDRITCH GOD IN THESE DOWNPITCHED VERSIONS WHY DO I FEEL LIKE IF I TRY TO CROSS THE OCEAN AT A CERTAIN TIME OF YEAR IT WILL OPEN UP AND TOP WILL BE THERE WAITING FOR UNHOLY VENGEANCE
“These BigBangs were not composed altogether of flesh and blood. They had shape - for did not this star-fashioned image prove it? - but that shape was not made of matter. When the stars were right, They could plunge from world to world through the sky; but when the stars were wrong, They could not live. But although They no longer lived, They would never really die.”
