And on this farm he had some pigs, E I E I O
With a hack hack here,
and a chop chop there,
Here a shriek, there a scream
Everywhere the blood streams...                                           
Old MacDonald had a farm, E I E I O

In rural Georgia in 1948, a man was lucky to get any kind of work.  Which was why Cletus Pink felt he'd been blessed when an old farmer named MacDonald offered him a job.  But what was making the horrific sounds coming from the main house? Worse, why was there always fresh blood oozing out from underneath the kitchen's back door?

Re-release! THE TUB, an Erotic Tale of Paranormal Horror



An Erotic Tale of Paranormal Horror
by Linda Mooney, writing as Gail Smith
Music And Press
ISBN: 978-1-941321-27-0

Word Count:  7.2K

Amanda Storey was sent by her company to a tiny rural town to convince the community that having a chain mega-supermarket
built there would be a boon to their economy and job market.

She never showed up for the town hall meeting, even though the company insists she was scheduled to be there.  The motor inn where she had reservations claimed she never checked in, and police have not found any trace of her body or her car.

This is what really happened.

Headless Photographs

You probably have heard of post-mortem Victorian photography, but did you also know that Victorians combined images from multiple negatives to create portraits known as "Headless Photographs."

And Then BOOM!

Designer and art director Kevin Weir sources old photographs and animates them into comical, absurd and often haunting gifs. Trawling the online archives of the Library of Congress, Weir uses the instantaneous nature of gifs to rough out short and snappy ideas. The photographs he uses as a base are all black and white, straight-faced, historical snapshots and result in a very Monty Python-esque comedic sketch.
Innocent Grandmas suddenly morph into tens of menacing crows and fly off screen. Bombed-out cities have strange monsters stalking in the background, materializing through wisps of smoke. We witness composed soldiers having their souls depart their uniformed bodies. Some changes are so subtle, we think maybe we are imagining it, adding to the haunting illusion of the whole scene.
Hosted on a tumblr site called The Flux Machine, Weir shows off his knack for humor. From an early age Weir was playing around with Photoshop and adding his own spin to various images. Throughout grad school he had a lot of spare time to fine tune his skills and years later spiced up his hobby of animating birds – coming up with these bizarre ideas. He says he is always drawn to “unknowable places and persons”; to pictures that aren’t loaded with modern day associations. The little “Princess Juliana” child sitting in her rocking chair conjuring up a flame, would feel completely different in a modern day context. The blend of antiquity, deadpan humor and surrealism in Weir’s work is a potently hilarious combination.

I will be posting more of these gifs in the days to come.
