Genres: Non-fiction Source: Author On Friday night my time, while I prepared to run an obstacle course to benefit MD research, Paris was the scene of a something far worse than a real life action movie. Cowards and human monsters killed indiscriminately in the name of their god and their […]

Haunting Halloween History

Resolutions…?

Another year comes to an end – huzzah! Now, I’m not one for resolutions, not because I don’t think they’re a good idea (because goals are good, people), but if I decide I’m going to do something, I don’t need a new year to motivate me into doing it. Usually. […]

Disneyfication

Disneyfication

Disneyfication is: the transformation (as of something real or unsettling) into carefully controlled and safe entertainment or an environment with similar qualities. That definition itself is almost sanitized enough […]
