Sparrow

Sparrow

The sparrow had disturbed Grandmother throughout the week. She was living with us, and had been for some time. Grandmother had grown so frail that I insisted she move in. For her advanced age, Grandmother was healthy and content with only the faintest hits of senility. Her eyes were failing, we weren’t sure she heard half of what was said in the home, and she tired easily; a woman with nearly one hundred years on this planet will struggle with…

The sparrow had disturbed Grandmother throughout the week. She was living with us, and had been for some time. Grandmother had grown so frail that I insisted she move in.

Attractive Nuisance

The worn brickwork and exposed pipes adorning Legendary Comics and Coffee’s interior miraculously succeeded in making the long, narrow café feel homey instead of dank and dingy. The atmosphere was equal parts historical renovation and intentional steampunk design. This atmosphere was welcoming to the faithful customers who saw the shop more as a clubhouse than a lair for outsiders; just one of the many triumphs of planning and execution by the owners. On nights such as this, when the monthly…

Ambrus Sanguine's Final Show

Ambrus Sanguine's Final Show

It was an elaborate set, as far as small television stations go. For over thirty years this faux Old World dungeon laboratory nestled within Studio 6 had been host to the Midwest’s longest running weekly hosted B-movie matinee.

The show’s lone curator during its historic run was Dr. Ambrus Sanguine, an aged Hungarian who never broke character. Sanguine, looking…

The Heart of Horror

The Heart of Horror

Long time, no see ghouls and ghoulettes! It’s been a spell since we’ve spent some time together here in the Waiting Room! You see, instead of sharing information with you all about the glorious gore and fearful fatalities of the medical world I have been working on another project that you may enjoy as much.
