Thomas Ligotti - The Bells Will Sound Forever
2008-08-10 15:37:06 ET

His hands trembled as he found all sorts of odd disguises lying about the floor or draped across a wardrobe mirror, elaborate and clownish outfits in rich velvets and shiny, colorful satins. Rummaging among this delirious attic-world, Crumm finally found what he barely knew he was seeking. There it was, buried at the bottom of one of the largest trunks--a fool's motley complete with soft slippers turned up at the toes and a two-pronged cap that jangled its bells as he pulled it over his head. The entire suit was a mad patchwork of colored fabrics and fitted him perfectly, once he had removed all of the clothing he wore as a commercial agent. The double peaks of the fool's cap resembled the twin horns of a snail, Crumm noticed when he looked at his image in the mirror, except that they drooped this way and that whenever he shook his head to make the bells jangle. There were also bells sewn into the turned-up tips of the slippers and hanging here and there upon the body of the jester's suit. Crumm made them all go jingle-jangle, he explained to me, as he pranced before the wardrobe mirror gazing upon the figure that he could not recognize as himself, so lost was he in a world of feelings and impulses he had never before imagined. He no longer retained the slightest sense, he said, of his existence as a traveling commercial agent. For him, there was now only the jester's suit hugging his body, the jingle-jangle of the bells, and the slack face of a fool in the mirror.

exploding glass - a tale of great wonder and mystery
2008-07-24 23:27:10 ET

Today this morning, I woke up and decided to make myself some strawberry milk. I actually drink soy milk though since I'm somewhat lactose intolerant. Anyways, I poured a few tablespoons into a glass mug thing. I usually add milk first, but I just woke up and didn't care. Afterwards, I poured in the milk. As this was occurring, I heard a few strange cracks. Suddenly, the glass split into two, spilling its contents all over the counter. "What the fuck," was quite the appropriate phrase for this incident.

I saw this movie the other day, and thought it was very good.
Anyone familiar with Bob Flanagan at all?
