I'm A Dirty Rotten Theif

So I have taken to shuffling about other people's blogs, and I came across this. I thought it was a pretty cool idea, and perhaps I would take it on myself, so here it is....

The Mosaic Picture Meme
Originally from Bud who changed the rules slightly, but stolen from Kathy.
The Concept:
This Meme is all about the Mosaic Collage that you are about to build by answering the questions in this meme by using pictures! First what we changed: The meme we stole required the use of programs that you needed to register to use. So it was tied to you downloading two programs (and learning them…) Here we do the same meme, the exact same way, but leave you to your own resources. We also simplified the rules to allow a bit more creative (and speed!). So here we go:

1. Type your answer to each of the questions below into Google Image Search or same type of search engine for pictures.
2. Using only the first page of results, pick one image. You can’t search forever for a certain image.
3. Copy and paste each in any program that you can post the pictures in a mosaic pattern. You can post them 3 X 4 or 4 X 3. We used Microsoft Paint below.

The questions:

1. What is your first name?… Linda
2. What is your favorite food?… Pizza (extra cheese, and deep dish, yummy)
3. What high school did you go to?… Leigh High School (I pray to never return to there again)
4. What is your favorite color? … Maroon
5. Who is your celebrity crush?… Trent Reznor (drool, I love him, for being a 40 year old man, I would do naughty naughty things to him!)
6. What is your favorite drink?… Cherry Coke
7. What is your dream vacation?… Sailing and fishing my way across the world
8. What is your favorite dessert?… Hot Fudge Sundae
9. What do you want to be when you grow up?… Veterinarian
10. What do you love most in life?… David, he's my love, my joy, my happiness. I would be nothing without him!
11. What is one word that describes you?… Odd
12. What is your blog name?… A Dazed Juggalette's Ramblings

The Wicked Clown In Me

Being a juggalette, a part fo me has this weird obsession with clowns, evil clowns. So while scoping out one of my favorite photoshop websites,, I stumbled upon not one, BUT TWO sections where people had turned celebrities into evil clowns. How awesome is that?

There are tons of these pictures, but these are the ones I found really cool. Check them out!

A very young, and very evil Christina Ricci. I think she would be stellar, even as an adult, in a seriously EVIL role.

I'm not very fond of Marilyn Manson, but I found this image pretty neat, and hauntingly true to his nature.

Liv Tyler, seriously hot to begin with, then as a clown. *drool* She would make an awesome juggalette. She looks uber hot all painted up.

Jessica Alba loks frightening in this picture, but so cool. Hard to even recognize it as her.

The one, the only, Christopher Walken. I love it, absolutely LOVE IT.

Bruce Willis, even more humpable as this. Yummy! (Sorry David!)

EDD: Empathy Deficit Disorder

Everything is a disease, everything is a disorder, no one is normal, nothing is normal anymore.

While looking over CNN today I came across an article about EDD (Empathy Deficit Disorder). Here is a small clip from this article that made me think, perhaps something is wrong with me and everyone I know:

Instead, on good days, she'd say, "Why are you crying? Nothing is wrong." And on bad days: "You'd better toughen up because life can get a lot worse." Looking back at my 20-something self, I realize that if, as LaBier says, empathy is "the ability or the willingness to experience the world from someone else's point of view," I wasn't brought up to be able to do that.

At least my lack of empathy was not unusual. Having practiced as a psychotherapist for 35 years, LaBier believes that what he calls empathy deficit disorder (EDD) is rampant among Americans.

LaBier says we unlearn whatever empathy skills we've picked up while coming of age in a culture that focuses on acquisition and status more than cooperation and values "moving on" over thoughtful reflection. LaBier is convinced that EDD is at the heart of modernity's most common problems, macro (war) and micro (divorce).

I think 90% of the world's population most likely suffers from EDD. No one gives a flying fuck about much of anyone else anymore. Why should we? Life is nothing but a rat race. Who can I step on to get to the top of the ladder? Who do I have to push off to stay there?

I know I'm not a very empathetic person, but does that mean there is a problem with this? I don't think so. I personally look at it as a means of self preservation. I only allow in the things and people I feel are important, and everything else gets shut out, and locked down. I keep things, and people, at an arms length, just to be safe. I see this as something very much necessary in our day and age. If we allowed everyone in, and allowed everyone close, it would leave nothing for ourselves.

Look at our president and chief, George W, he's a fine example of the typical, non-empathetic American. Perhaps he suffers from EDD. Hey, Georgie 'ol buddy, 'ol pal, if you read this, YOU HAVE EDD (possibly ED too, but that's a whole other debate!).

But then again, most men don't show hardly any empathy. ATTENTION ALL MEN, YOU ALL SUFFER FROM EDD, GO SEEK HELP.

I think I am going to go home and tell David he suffers from EDD.

Engrish... Chinglish... Whatever you want to call it.... (part 1)

Engrish, where do I begin. Well first off, I assume everyone knows what Engrish is. Oh, you don't, well let me explain. Engrish is the strange and often humorous misuse of the english language. It often ends in things being explained, or described in a manner that is very inappropriate for the object, or just down right STRANGE.

Til Death Do Us Part

So, have I mentioned recently, how utterly terrified I am about getting married. Yes, me, I am a nervous wreck. Wow... It is less than 2 months before I tie the knot and I still have so many things to do. So many things I haven't even touched, I just don't know where to begin. Plus, Jamie is leaving in 2 weeks. I'm gonna miss my best friend.

So I haven't really posted in a while because life has been moving at super sonic speed lately (plus my laptop took a shit on me at home). David and I went back home to visit family. That went well, then we came home and Ramal is moving out. We're both flat broke right now, and struggling to make it through the next week.

I found some food in the freezer last night that I know I didn't buy, but I think I am going to cook it to prove a point (since Ramal has cleaned our freezer out!!!).

Anyway, this post is here just to make a statement that I am still alive, struggling through my wedding plans, and just trying to make ends meet. I will be back soon with more useless crap. I promise.

True Story Horror Review, part 1

I was sitting down today, checking out some stuff online about good horror movies. Tons of sites claiming to have lists of the best horror movies ever. Well, I don't give a flying fuck about if it is the "best" or the "scariest." Which movies are honestly based on real life events, that's what I wanna know. So here is some information I dug up on some movies that claim to be "based on real events."

The Exorcist- By far one of the most famous horror movies of our times. Everyone has seen it, or at least has seen or heard references to it. It was marketed as "based on real life events" and that isn't exactly the truth. The novel is based upon a story heard about an exorcism of a young BOY in 1949. This exorcism supposedly took place in Mt. Rainier, Maryland and Bel-Nor, Missouri. It took a little more than 6 weeks to exorcise the demon from young Robbie.

So, is it based on real life. Yes, and no. It depends on if you believe in exorcisms in the first place. It is based upon something the writer had heard about and supposedly researched. Oh well, this one gets a silver sticker from me. It's hard to say if it really is, because so many facts were changed to help hide the real victims identity. Oh well, still a classic horror film in it's own right!

Amityville Horror- We've all known someone who knew someone who knew someone who's ACTUALLY been there, and it really is haunted, right? So, this movie was based upon a certain amount of what I will call "known truth." In other words, it is on record with the police, crime units, newspapers, and more of really happening.

So, here is the known truth. A murder really did take place there, a murder of the Defeo's. Ronald Defeo murdered his mother, father, two brothers, and two sisters. Here is the truth of the story (read the entire Wiki entry on it here)

At around 6:30 on the evening of November 13, 1974, Ronald DeFeo, Jr. burst into Henry's Bar in Amityville, Long Island, New York and declared: “You got to help me! I think my mother and father are shot.” DeFeo and a small group of people went to 112 Ocean Avenue, which was located not far from the bar, and found that DeFeo's parents were indeed dead. One of the group, Joe Yeswit, made an emergency call to the Suffolk County Police, who searched the house and found that six members of the same family were dead in their beds.

The victims were Ronald DeFeo, Sr., 43, Louise DeFeo, 42, and four of their children: Dawn, 18; Allison, 13; Marc, 12; and John Matthew, 9. All of the victims had been shot with a .35 caliber lever action Marlin rifle at around three o'clock in the morning of that day. DeFeo's parents had both been shot twice, while the children had all been killed with single shots. The DeFeo family had occupied 112 Ocean Avenue since purchasing it in 1965.

Ronald DeFeo, Jr. was the eldest son of the family, and was also known as "Butch". He was taken to the local police station for his own protection after suggesting to police officers at the scene of the crime that the killings had been carried out by a mob hit man named Louis Falini. However, an interview with DeFeo at the station soon exposed serious inconsistencies in his version of events, and the following day he confessed to carrying out the killings himself. He told detectives: "Once I started, I just couldn’t stop. It went so fast."

So, a real murder did indeed happen there, although there is arguments as to if it happened as most seem to believe. After that, the Lutz family moved in, and only managed to stay 28 days. The family had been full on aware since day one of what occurred in the house, and had not a single issue with it. Strange things started happening, according to Mr. Lutz, from the move in day (the dog attempting to hang itself over the fence, a priest while blessing the house stating uncomfortable feelings in a certain room, and other "small things").

Mysterious and repulsive odors pervaded the home. A strange green jello like substance leaked from the walls. The toilet bowls began to turn black. Swarms of houseflies were found time and time again in the sewing room. Strange drops of black goo oozed from the keyholes in the doors. Small indicators that something was wrong inside the house at 112 Ocean Avenue.
Personality changes also began to affect the Lutz family. George would suddenly awake precisely at 3:15 am each morning... with an uncontrollable urge to check the boathouse. He would go for days without bathing. George was often sick, losing a lot of weight, and energy. Kathy began having nightmares. The children often fought and argued with one another.

The Lutz's had never intended on abandoning their home. But the events unfolding night after night were becoming unbearable. The plan was simply to spend some time away from the house... and sort things out. Figure out what was going on. So arrangements were made to spend time at Kathy's mothers house.

The family managed to grab a few changes of clothing, while the temperature inside the home fluctuated from chilling cold, to hot. Strange banging noises were heard, and the interior walls of the house seemed to shift about, making groaning noises. And... as they were leaving the home, George encountered another apparition on the second floor landing. This time.. a hooded figure that stood motionless, pointing directly at George Lutz.


You can read through his entire interview, and take it to mean what you like. Some argue the Lutz family just did it to gain attention and earn some money. Which, it does appear they did indeed do. It has been reported that owners since the Lutz have experienced no problems, and the movers who moved the Lutz possessions out did not experience anything either. Personally, I see this as mostly fiction. Hoax! Red Star, bullshit!

Deranged: Confessions of a Necrophile- So most definitely a movie not many have heard of, and I doubt you've seen. However, this movie is believed by many Serial Killer buffs to be the best and most honest depiction of Ed Gein after his mother's death. Not a real life story, but supposedly a great movie that perhaps will let you see things the way Ed Gein may have. Gold star, real life horror, go check it out!

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre- Takes a silver star. Ed Gein apparently was quite a man, inspiring all sorts of movies with his killings. Here is another. Leatherface is NOT a real person. Never has been, probably never will be, just get over it. Apparently, the writer of the book once visited Ed Gein's house, and became en charmed with the story. From there he created a character whom we all know and love, Leatherface. Is it a true story, no. Is it based loosely upon a real person, yes. Is it a good movie, hell, I like blood!

(stay tuned for part two of my "true story horror" review)
