How sweet, Fresh Meat.

I DO think that the younger a person is now days the more desensitized they are. Violence, sex it’s all there for them to gobble up on the news, internet, everything.
Point of fact: Who or what were you afraid of when you were a kid?
Now days there are some really over the top crap out there that just mildly disturbs “the kids”.
Jason, Freddy, Jigsaw are all getting pushed aside for bigger, worse, uglier demons.
You know who creeped me out when I was a kid?
Who caused ME nightmares and gave me the willies when I was but a lad?
The child catcher from Chitty-Chitty Bang-Bang.
Yup, that long nosed freak with the big black top hat that went around sniffing for children to toss them in the dungeon.
I can still hear his “I smell children” in my head and it makes me uncomfortable.
Just a freak with a net set me on edge.

I remember being in High School and coming home from partying really late, late. Wasn’t quite tired so I tossed in this flick I rented in the VCR ‘cause everyone said it was really scary.
I scoffed.
I scoffed like the big bad man I was. (AM! I mean AM)
“Nightmare on Elm Street, my ass. How scary can it be.”

I did not make it past the opening credits before the house settling creaks and groans were matching the movies pretty spot on.
I even got up and toured the house (just to be sure)
Finally I just shut the movie off and said “I am tired” and went to bed and watched the movie in the broad daylight the next day.

Now days, to High-Schools, Freddy aint nutthin but Bo-Peep on “her cycle”.

There is no wonder left in the world.


  1. I had a couple of fears when I was little, but fortunately I never watched horror movies until was older. I was afraid of whatever was under my bed...and I was afraid that the electrical sockets were going to get me. I talked to them every night and every time I was alone to try to convince them I wasn't so bad. :)

  2. @sky blue : Dont you hate it when you can scare the crap outta yourself out by just thinking someone is there or in the room.
    It's like "shut up brain!"


Thrill me...dripsome brain droppings here.
