My mind works in mysterious ways. There’s simply no way around it, and no use in trying to make excuses. Sometimes it creates strange scenarios that I find hilarious, and sometimes when people around me talk about something, my brain devours the information, uses some association magic and; Tah dah! The comic above is an example of the latter. I know, it’s kinda cruel, it’s kinda twisted, but at the same time funny. Don’t try to deny it, on the inside (or outside) you are smiling. It’s not because you’re a bad person, it’s because the scenario above is so twisted, so macabre, that your brain can’t believe it to be true. And that’s why it’s funny.
The coming weeks there’ll be some changes to Trial and Error, I won’t mention everything, where’s the fun in that? The characters seen above will be recurring ones. As some of you already know (or have guessed) they’re based on over-the-top, simplified versions of me and Daniel, my accomplice. But if you ask him, maybe I’m the accomplice? Who knows these days.
Yesterday I finished reading Little star, written by John Ajvide Lindqvist (Let me in, Handling the undead). (Spoiler alert) It’s a story about two fourteen year old girls Theres and Teresa. One of them was found in a forest and hidden and raised by a middle aged couple. What’s special about her is her voice, she sings perfectly, and even as a baby she only communicated through tones. The other girl Teresa is an ordinary, little odd, teenage girl. When they meet they finally stop feeling alone and a terrible plan is made.
I really must say that the author accomplished his goals; his book played my emotional register as was it a piano. Little star made me happy, angry, sad and depressed. Most of all angry. It’s one of those stories that you love, but at the same time hate. If’ you’ve seen Lars von Triers Dogville you probably know what I mean. Don’t get me wrong, it was worth the read, so I’d recommend it. But be warned, there’s no goodness in it.
Anyway, have a great weekend and take care of each other!
