NoSleep, no problems!

The NoSleep Podcast has been around for a long time, and so I’m sure that there have been many people many times who have written blog posts, articles, and what have you’s about the horror anthology18955 podcast.  The thing that I love so much about this podcast is that they showcase writers at literally every level.  There are people whose first story was literally for the podcast, and people who have gone on to have novels published.  It’s all inclusive, and all encompassing of the many facets of the broad umbrella of “horror”.

NoSleep started out as forum to bring to life the top stories on the Reddit subforum “NoSleep”.  It has since evolved into so much more, and authors can now submit stories through email for consideration.  One of the things that I think is so fascinating about the NoSleep podcast is its unique format.  Every episode has at least two stories that are available to the public, making each free/public episode at least one hour long.  In order to get the full, over two hour long episode, people can buy “season passes”.  You can purchase individual episodes or the entire season, but if you’re a broke college kid like me don’t worry!  The NoSleep podcast, as I said, offers at least two of their stories from each episode as their own individual episode for free.

The NoSleep show runner is David Cummings, and they have 30+ voice actors that contribute to the podcast from all different walks of life.

On a more personal, less informationy note:

The thing that I have come to appreciate so much about this podcast is the way that people are exposed to every subgenre of horror.  There are stories about creatures, killers, demons, and so many  more.  If you want to be unsettled, darkly delighted, or anything in between there will always be an episode for you.  I’ve been listening long enough now that I even have my favorite voice actors, and am learning to identify their names! (I realize that there is no way top put emojis, but picture that laughing crying face emoji here…)

I have even submitted my own story to them, and I plan to work on and submit more.

I think I will start posting some more specific reviews/discussions of the individual episodes eventually.  Right now they are at the end of their 10th season, and so I will probably wait until the 11th season starts up to do this.

As always: keep it horrifying, friends.

Hey remembered when I lied? That was fun.

So I was just going back through my blog, and I realized I posted forever ago (like literally…over a year ago) that I would be posting once a week and wow WAS THAT A STUPID THING TO PROMISE!

I completely forgot that I ever made that post, and knowing myself I don’t know why I would ever put a time frame on myself like that.  But, I’ve been thinking about this blog on and off for awhile and while I realize that I’m pretty much the only person that reads it I still want to get back in to posting from time to time about horror things.  I cannot promise any sort of posting schedule, and I can’t promise that I’ll remember everything I’ve posted.  The one thing I DIDN’T lie about in that last post was that I don’t want to keep this strictly movie reviews.  I want to talk about books, YouTube videos, creepy places, spooky experiences, podcasts, and really anything that might have to do with things that go bump in the night.

So I AM back, really, I am.

That’s not a lie.

The lie part would’ve been if I gave you a hard and fast schedule for posting.  I think there will be another post today, and I’m going to TRY to post once every two weeks at least, but please don’t hold me to that (she says to the zero people reading this right now).  If you ARE reading this, THANK YOU AND YOU ARE A GEM.

Keep it horrifying, friends.

I’m back witches

Hello all you out there in internet land (even though I’m not sure anyone is actually reading this other than maybe my dad…HI DAD). I have been so ridiculously busy since the beginning of this semester that I wasn’t sure at all whether or not sustaining this blog was going to be possible. As you can all see so far it hasn’t been. But things in my life have been changing and recent events have made me realize that keeping this blog is actually going to be something useful to my future career, unlike when I originally started keeping it and it was just for a class project.

I have switched my major from Strategic Communications (a pretentious way to say Public Relations) to English: Writing Track and through that I have decided that keeping a blog about something I actually am passionate about, not because I’m being told I have to but because I want to, is a good way to exercise my writing skills.

So here is my promise to those of you out there who may, or may not, be reading this right now: I will be posting a new blog on something horror related once a week.  It may be a film, it may be a book, it may be a real life horror story but regardless of what it is it will be up.

I hope that those of you who may be reading this are still somewhat intrigued in the ramblings of a long time horror nerd who just wants to keep my writing muscles well toned and continue to build them up.

Thank you to those of you who have still come back even though I completely neglected this and you for months now.  I appreciate it and you.

Keep it horrifying my friends.
