Re: Quirk Classics

Twelfth Night at Dr. Locrian's Asylum by William Shakespeare and Thomas Ligotti.

"What does it mean to be alive except to court disaster and suffering at every moment?"

Tibet: Carnivals?
Ligotti: Ceremonies for initiating children into the cult of the sinister.
Tibet: Gas stations?
Ligotti: Nothing to say about gas stations as such, although I've always responded to the smell of gasoline as if it were a kind of perfume.

Re: Quirk Classics

If we are allowed songs, I believe that Clown Puppet on a String won the Neurovision Song Contest in 1967.
