  • long spiral staircases (often combined with something scary)
  • intense colors in the night sky. The most insane, explosive meteor showers you can imagine.
  • taking pictures of things. Usually something goes wrong so that either I don't get to see the pictures, my camera is stolen,or the pictures don't turn out well.
  • something awful hiding in the basement, lurking unseen for months. Finding out what it is is always a dreadful moment.
  • running from things, escaping, trying not to die
  • zombies (that may or may not want to eat me). I usually start off the dream trying to destroy them.
  • dogs that want to eat me
  • sexy men

  • Carowinds/IKEA trip!
  • Trip to Asheville in Nov.
  • getting a job that, for a while, didn't suck
  • ditching excess fat
  • watching Westworld
  • new Radiohead album

I hate to jump on the bandwagon, but 2016 was really more of a filler year. Not even a particularly good one. I got a job, but I just worked and was bored. And the politics... oh god the politics. I can only hope our country doesn't completely go to shit in 2017, that we still have some semblance of a democracy at the end.

  • Alchemilla (Silent Hill mod): Very impressive for a fan-made mod. It's a little slow at first, and honestly even once it gets going, it's never very action-packed. The devs couldn't find anyone to implement weapons, enemies, or inventory, so you'd think the game would be almost unplayably boring, but the strength of the visuals makes it worth it. I hope whoever made this is hired by whichever studio is making Silent Hill these days, because the visuals were spot-on. The gameplay is very puzzle-oriented. It's basically like Silent Hill 1-3 without enemies, but it still manages to be surprisingly creepy. Without enemies though, there's never truly that same feeling of dread as in the real games. 7/10
  • Amnesia: The Dark Descent : 8/10
  • Bioshock : 10/10
  • Bioshock 2 : Worth playing, but doesn't add much to the original. 7/10
