Dreamt about a treacherous mountain ascent, probably inspired by this article a friend sent me about mountain climbers left to die on Everest.

Ceiling plaster by Johann Georg  Leinberger, 1729- 1731,   Bamberg 

Why doesn’t my ceiling look like that?  Time to ring the builders.

I did some dusting this weekend; I’m betting that most folks don’t have to dust their skull or their fencing dagger.

Or their coffin.  Heck, most people probably don’t listen to music on actual stereos these days either!

They have never caught me and they never will. They have never seen me, for I am invisible, even as the ether that surrounds your earth. I am not a human being, but a spirit and a demon from the hottest hell. I am what you Orleanians and your foolish police call the Axeman.

Now, to be exact, at 12:15 (earthly time) on next Tuesday night, I am going to pass over New Orleans. In my infinite mercy, I am going to make a little proposition to you people. Here it is:

I am very fond of jazz music, and I swear by all the devils in the nether regions that every person shall be spared in whose home a jazz band is in full swing at the time I have just mentioned. If everyone has a jazz band going, well, then, so much the better for you people. One thing is certain and that is that some of your people who do not jazz it on Tuesday night (if there be any) will get the axe.

Over the weekend I fished these DVDs out of the bargain bin.  I just couldn’t resist the siren call of weird, creepy history.
America’s 60 Greatest Unsolved Murders & Crimes was a mere $4.99.  I fully expected it to be absolutely awful, but it’s actually fairly fun!  The voice-overs are a real hoot.  Best five bones I’ve spent in a while.
The others were about $3 a pop.  They will definitely come in handy next October; I always seem to miss these shows when they appear on the History Chanel.
Nevertheless, the search continues for a full-length documentary on Lizzie Borden.
