Afternoon Links: Horror Conventions, Infinite Jests, and Illegal Bieber Tats
The Days of the Dead horror convention is in Los Angeles this weekend, and judging by the website, it looks like it might feature Mrs. Potato Dick on stage 15. Too scary for you? I’m not going to entertain that argument because we live in a world that houses giant spiders the size of your face and a war between Ivy League alumni and the undead. Horror movies are way tame compared with them spiders, y’all. Thoroughly modern Carrie even washed her hair in the newly released trailer so you wouldn’t worry about her laying her telekinetic head on greasy bedsheets at night after being forced to pray in the closet. I’ll take a “blood monsoon” over “really dark black meat” any day.
