Re: Menacing clown sightings form "harlequin triangle" in North Carolina

A part of me is revelling in this. Between Trump idiocy and whatever thing I'm supposed to be offended about on a celebrity's Twitter feed today, it's nice to have something weird, dark and mysterious going on. It's becoming a sort of modern day folk horror.

I wonder how Ligotti feels about all of this.

Pointed this out in another thread, but it's smart to capitalize on this for Ligotti. Capitalism ftw. No need to fear ligottian pastiche yet.

More $ equals more comfortable lifestyle, maybe more time to write stories or to chill out not having to worry about things.

How TL feels now vs after this all dies down and checks bank balance. Only he knows ;)

Re: Menacing clown sightings form "harlequin triangle" in North Carolina

This is so odd. The tiny area of land I leave my house to walk around in is now victim to terrorising clowns. The local area is buzzing with fear. Kids are skipping school. Adults are afraid to go out after dark.

I'm loving it. Went for a walk in the woods last night listening to black metal and constantly looking over my shoulder for adroit jesters.

Re: Menacing clown sightings form "harlequin triangle" in North Carolina

Are these bogus clown sightings making people fidgety?


A short time ago, I was sitting on my front porch steps, smoking a cigarette, tall bushes on either side of me. It was around midnight and the night was unseasonably hot. I felt like a king on his hidden throne.

A teenager walked by. Suddenly he saw me in the shadows, grabbed at his heart (honest to God!), stumbled and gasped audibly.

"Whoa, I didn't see you, man. You looked liked like a werewolf."
"Yeah, I am," II responded, "but a good one. Nothing to fear."
"Thanks, man," he said as he continued to stumble away.
True. But weird.
Weird.
Damn clown sightings.

Re: Menacing clown sightings form "harlequin triangle" in North Carolina

I guess the clowns have had enough clowning around.

Coulrophobia (Extreme or irrational fear of clowns) was on the shortlist for word of the year.
