Turn the lights down low, turn your spookiest music up, it is time for another edition of Carnacki’s Chiller Theater bwhahahaha.
Last week, an intruder from Maine entered my domain seeking his revenge for the theft of his diary idea. This week, I have surrounded The Carnacki Crypt with hungry zombies. Bwhahaha. Won’t Bill be in for a nasty surprise?
Tonight we have a special treat for you. My favorite pet gargoyle stole Bill’s <swoosh> machine and re-set it. This is not Cheers & Jeers. This is Chills & Thrills. What else would you expect at a sight named BooooooMan?
<creeeeeaaaaaakkkkkk> (ahh, what sweet music the swooosh machine makes)
Chills to the Bush Cult’s continued refusal to push the grossly ill-suited John Bolton to the ambassadorship of the United Nations. His mustache alone is too frightening for the diplomatic corps.
Thrills to the second greatest Romanian: Soj. Her PDB’s should be required reading by all for its rundown of genuine terrors, monsters, and ways to stop horrors.
Chills to cruise ship horrors. A giant, 7-story tall wave struck a cruise ship. In related news, poets and artists dream of underwater city ruled by Cthulhu.
Thrills to the discovery of headless skeletons. (I didn’t do it – sorry, habitual reflex when I hear bodies are found). The Yorshire Post reports on a terrifyingly great discovery
ANOTHER headless skeleton discovered in York is among a series of gruesome archaeological finds which could hold the key to unlocking secrets behind Roman burial rituals.
The latest discovery of human remains by archaeologists follows in the wake of another headless skeleton found shackled in a grave and a Roman mummy which was also unearthed in The Mount area of the city.
A total of 57 bodies – 50 adults and seven children – and 14 sets of cremated remains have been found during excavations, most by the York Archaeological Trust at a site in Driffield Terrace.
Archaeologists are now confident the bodies will provide perhaps the clearest indication yet on the Roman attitude to death.
It is thought the Romans could have beheaded corpses to release the human spirit, which they believed was contained in the head.
Thrills to genetic research unlocking an ancient secret.
After years of controversy and political intrigue, archaeologists using genetic testing have proven that Caucasians roamed China’s Tarim Basin 1,000 years before East Asian people arrived.
The research, which the Chinese government has appeared to have delayed making public out of concerns of fueling Uighur Muslim separatism in its western-most Xinjiang region, is based on a cache of ancient dried-out corpses that have been found around the Tarim Basin in recent decades.
Where is Robert E. Howard when we need him to write this into a fantastic adventure story?
Chills to Ice Man curses. The Guardian reports five researchers connected to the discovered body of an Ice Man have died.
Chills to the largest cult outside of the Bush White House. Go read what the Bush Cult has in store for us.
Thrills to the discovery of a necropolis pre-dating the pyramids. The BBC reports:
Archaeologists say they have found the largest funerary complex yet dating from the earliest era of ancient Egypt, more than 5,000 years ago.
The necropolis was discovered by a joint US and Egyptian team in the Kom al-Ahmar region, around 600 km (370 miles) south of the capital, Cairo.
Inside the tombs, the archaeologists found a cow’s head carved from flint and the remains of seven people.
They believe four of them were buried alive as human sacrifices.
Human sacrifices found in a necropolis!!!…you don’t get that at DailyKos. Bwhahahaha.
What is Chilling & Thrilling you this week?
