Corpsing Status Update

Ordinarily, I prefer to post updates about my corpsing projects here¬†after I’ve completed them. But, this next series of corpses is taking a lot longer than normal. A typical corpse takes me less than a week to build. It’s usually as simple as melting a first layer of plastic onto the bones, then staining the flesh and giving it 24 Read More …

Grumpy Old Man Rant – Halloween Edition

Even before I was a haunter, I was a horror fanatic. I have always held a special place in my heart (or in the void where my heart should be) for Halloween. The Gaelic, Pagan, and Christian traditions that ultimately contributed to the formation of All Hallows’ Eve may have had nothing to do with modern horror as we know Read More …

An Open Letter to “Normies”

In my effort to teach my old self some new tricks, I was poking around on Google the other day and typed “how to survive as a drifter” into the search bar. These following three results caught my eye and are the purpose of this post. What It’s Like Living as a Crust Punk Reddit: I want to become a Read More …

Green Bay and the Wild West

Seeing as how I’ve decided to remain in Green Bay for the foreseeable future, I think it’s time I settle back into my home. No One Strolls Anymore There’s a scene in Penny Dreadful where Dr. Seward hypnotizes Renfield and they stroll through a Chinatown dreamscape to find Dracula. The scene has stuck in my head – for whatever reason Read More …

The Stars at Night

I’ve just returned from yet another trip to my favorite campsite in Nicolet National Forest. It was likely my final visit to the campsite as I prepare to move far away from Wisconsin. Part of me will miss hiking around in that forest and swimming in Butternut Lake. But part of me will not miss it. Final Visit? Even if Read More …

Hard Truths and a Reality Check About My Nomadic Identity

This past weekend, I was so excited. I hadn’t been to my campsite up at Nicolet National Forest since December. And it was two months before that when there wasn’t snow on the ground. I’ve been waiting seven months to do some camping! I monitored snow coverage maps for weeks, waiting impatiently for the snow to melt. Then I waited Read More …

Till Death Do Us Part

I’ve completed one other corpse project after “Nasir”. I had two more miniature skeletons to use, so rather than make two individual corpses, I decided to take what I did with Nasir to the next logical step, and actually depict some necrophilia. Say “hi” to Shaun and Zach. The Build As I did with Nasir, this piece features multi-layered fleshing Read More …

Nasir, a Sex Doll for Necrophiliacs

I’ve been saying for a long time that once I got the hang of corpse-building, that I would eventually make a sex doll for necrophiliacs. I wasn’t joking. Allow me to introduce “Nasir”. Nasir’s Namesake There’s no shortage of cute guys I could have named him after. I chose Nasir, a character from Spartacus played by Pana Hema Taylor. I Read More …

My [Mostly] Completed Battle Jacket

This is my battle jacket – that I began before my road trip, and now completed (for all intents and purposes). Featured Patches The jacket features my favorite horror-comedy movies, including Deathgasm (back patch), Dead Alive, Ghostbusters, and Evil Dead. Other patches allude to my road trip, Necrophilia, and other philosophies. Missing Patches I’m thinking about getting an Apocalyptica patch, Read More …

Two and a Half Months In

I wager this is a long overdue status update. I can’t believe I’ve avoided writing anything here for six weeks. Part of the explanation is an utter want for something worthwhile to say. But the days bleed from one to the next. Most days, I’ve no idea what day of the week it is. Not that it would matter. I Read More …
