me and my friends on halloween
me every day.
new aesthetic: cryptidcore
- kitschy t shirts and keychains from souvenir shops depicting the local urban legends and monsters
- glow in the dark stuff and generic alien themed stuff
- tin foil hats
- muffled x files, gravity falls, and twilight zone theme songs playing in the distance
- staring into the night sky and wondering if we’re alone
- lots of pictures of the woods and abandoned houses
I feel like she would dig this post
a) omg :3 and b) “new” aesthetic, awww, does this makes me a TRENDMAKER? do I get money / fancy articles in obscure magazines no one reads? interview me about my garlic bulbs and my alien keychain and the abandoned barracks I climbed around in!
Happy first day of September, Halloweenies! :D Only three more weeks until Autumn! And just two months until Halloween!
so… I’ve had an outrageous number of new followers this week! hi, new followers! I suspect you are here because of this post, which has gone viral again despite being two years old. in that case, I have bad news for you. that post is a super accurate introduction to me and to my blog. wacky demonology facts are about as cool as it gets around here. IT DOESN’T GET BETTER.
(I didn’t source that post because I didn’t expect it to go viral and in the context of my blog that day I’d already mentioned, but I was liveblogging The Encyclopedia of Demons and Demonology by Rosemary Ellen Guiley*, as you do. yeah, that’s a real thing that’s really in the historical record; I did not make it up.)
anyway, hi, I’m Jo! I live in eastern Kentucky and before that I lived in New York. I like cult tv, wine, punk hair, YA fiction, folk music, Wikipedia at 3am, and Halloween. I am currently convalescing from being super extra crazy, and I don’t feel too great about that, so that’s a thing. my hobbies include teaching myself to drive a moped and learning how to enjoy hobbies again. I sleep on a couch surrounded by stacks of ufology texts and empty coffee mugs, which, uh. I also have feelings about mental illness and about class issues and about Jesus, but often find these difficult to articulate. my big thing used to be being interested in everything but I am now having to re-learn that. I’m studying to be an actual for real folklorist, but until I can afford school that means “READ EVERYTHING ALL THE TIME AND EAVESDROP ON PUBLIC TRANSIT”.
I am really not scary at all but sometimes forget to answer messages BUT YOU SHOULD SAY HI ANYWAY, FEEL FREE TO COMMENT ON ANYTHING OR ASK MY OPINION OR WHATEVER, I GENUINELY CARE. I also try to tag consistently and for all obvious phobias &ct and am always willing to tag something for you. also, hi.
* who I am going to see do a talk on murder-victim ghosts of West Virginia at the Mothman Festival in September, I AM NOT JOKING I AM ACTUALLY THE BIGGEST CREEPIEST NERD THERE IS
