Once More, With Feeling…

Another winter storm is coming. This one might actually be bad. Atlanta natives are determined not to be caught slipping (literally) again. The weather-drama has achieved epic levels.

This is pretty much the general consensus among my fellow Atlanta natives at this point:

    And, as always, hare I am frying eggs on the sidewalk.

    I was thinking about you this morning, concerning this storm. My area in MD is supposed to get somewhere around a foot of snow, plus/minus a foot. Thank God I can telecommute, and just hope the power doesn’t go out on us. If it does, I’ll just have to wire my furnace controls to my generator. I have enough gas on the farm to keep us going for a couple of days if needed.

    Weather Channel says you guys got freezing rain today, which is the shittiest kind of winter weather IMO. I’ll take a foot of snow over freezing rain any day. It’s not the cold that gets ya, it’s the cold precipitation.

    Anyway, hope you guys are safe down there. Remember: Ammo = supplies.

    Only because this is the latest active thread…

    I watched the 1986 movie From Beyond yesterday, based on the HPL story of the same name. Not bad. I don’t recall the story, but I’m sure I’ve read it at some point. The movie was pretty good, some decent FX work, and a typical HPL flair to the story telling. As a general movie, I’d give it a 6, for an HPL based movie I’d have to rate it a bit higher since most adaptations of his are bad, so I’ll say 7.5 on that basis.

    Please God, let this kid NOT be a fan of Eric Hood. Amen!

    I haven’t been here in three months, and it doesn’t look like anyone else has either. What a shame. This is the second site that I used almost daily that has died this year.

    RIP, and thanks for the stories.

  7. nate, August 31, 2014:

    Well, I remember my password. DI, I don’t expect you to start back up writing, but are you even still around? I can’t believe I’m the only one who misses you. Best wishes. Hope things are better.

  8. Rumo, October 22, 2014:

    nate, you’re not the only one. RIP this site. DI I hope you are healthy and happy and still writing somewhere

  9. DarkIcon, October 28, 2014:

    I’m still alive and about as healthy as I’ve always been… although, honestly, that isn’t saying much.

    Writing? Not really. I don’t check this site very often, and I check my main darkicon email account only every couple of days.

    Is this site dead? Sadly, yeah. I fully intend to keep it around and, even if I can’t for some reason, I’ll make sure the stories are available somehow/somewhere. As for new content… I’m hesitant to use the word “never”, but I’d definitely agree with “not very likely.”

    Things do change, though. I just don’t see them changing in the right ways at the moment.

  10. nate, November 3, 2014:

    Glad to know you’re still alive, and happy belated b-day.

    The only reason I’m even here at the moment is because of an article I just read concerning American Horror Story, and how each season is stand-alone but also has ties to the other seasons. That whole concept of inter-connectedness reminded me of the complex connections in the December and related series of stories. So much was left unanswered.

    Life, scratch that, EXISTENCE goes on.

    This looked like something DI might like, I think. At least the description reminded me of a cross between the last story he was writing, and some other stuff.

  12. nate, March 30, 2015:

    Just dropping by to see if anyone’s been here. Doesn’t look like it. So sad, but I’ve got the memories of this place’s golden days. I hope the various authors are still writing, and I can manage to stumble onto new works at some point in time.

  13. nate, April 9, 2015:

    Just because this is the last active thread, and DI likes HPL.
