First there is the above picture I saw on Brother May's place from Maury Povich's 'FEAR' shows. Pretty much the greatest topic done on any show ever in the history of the medium. I SO need to tell everyone about the best episode of this series of show. This is TRUE FEAR in the month of fear.
Those are the awesomely wicked Maury Povich 'TERROR' shows. They bring in people with crippling fears of things...mostly bugs or snakes or dogs or birds or kittens or chickens. I mean REALLY bad fears.
They are first interviewed and Maury will bring out a kitten or show only a picture of a kitten at which point the guest loses her shit and usually runs screaming. I kid you not.
Then after the torture of having the think you fear shoved in her face, Maury has a guy hypnotise them and by the end of the show they can hold a kitten or a tarantula in their hands and in some cases juggle them both at the same time.
It's the best thing I have ever seen anyone do a show on ever. The best one - and please know that to choose ONE is a real 'Sophie's Choice' for me - was the one about the woman who was terrified of cotton balls. Yes, COTTON BALLS.
So they got one Maury intern to dress up like cotton ball snowmen. Must have taken them a day and half to glue all the cotton balls on him.
Next 'Snowy' came out at her from backstage. I thought she was gonna DIE. The woman runs backstage thinking she is going to safety only to find interns in the hall with plastic container FULL of cotton balls to shove in her face. What kind of sick fuck IS this Maury Povich?
At the end of the show, however, both her and the intern without dignity hugged it out. It was beautiful, man. I half wanted the Cotton Ball Man, as he was going in for the hug, to start screaming at her and try to grab onto her like a crazy person.
When she breaks away and runs in terror off the stage for the second time, you show Maury looking at the hypnotist when he says, "I guess that one didn't take, huh?".
Here is the clip. Don't say I don't love you or ever do anything nice for you. You can thank me later.
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
