@nicknicknicknick that’s what I’ve heard.
@checkervest out damn blood, out!
@checkervest I like cooking with beets because my kitchen becomes the scene of a murder
@Mainebot fuck social media tbh.
@nicknicknicknick why not both? 🤣 co-op where one of the two is given an objective to work against their teammate.
@Mainebot this sounds ridiculous and good. Not quite the same but the card game Blank has you adding rules as you play the game, it’s really good
@Mainebot legacy games taken to the next level
Brian Evenson, horror
@ryanlittlefield the day therapist was more like an apple than a banana. He would not be easy to peel. Perhaps it would be better to chew all of him up.

There’s something disquieting about this:
An apple wasn’t like a banana, he thought. His night therapist was wrong. They both had skin, but with an apple you could eat the skin, and with a banana you couldn’t. You could peel a banana easily with your fingers; an apple you couldn’t. To peel an apple of its skin, you needed a knife. A person was more like an apple than a banana. You couldn’t peel a person easily with your fingers. With a person, you needed a knife.
@paeneultima I’ve not read her! Will have to check them out. There’s a film adaptation of another of his stories, Wandering Earth, which has that same thread of hope. It’s not a perfect film but it was a pretty decent watch if you haven’t seen it! It’s not as far reaching as Remembrance of Earth’s Past but still good.
@paeneultima for sure! It’s made me want to read more of his work. Definitely liked it not falling into the patterns so much other sci-fi falls into where you can tell pretty generally where it’s going to go
@paeneultima that ending was so perfect. The chapters leading up to it were so bleak, I was very happy with how it was all resolved
@paeneultima I can definitely see that being helpful. It was pretty intense to read with how high the hopes went and the depths of hopelessness, though hope persisted throughout.

Finished reading Mona Awad’s Bunny yesterday. Started out very strong with a weird mean girls vibe, lost its way a bit in the middle third, but finished pretty strong in the end.
Now I’m onto Brian Evenson’s Song for the Unraveling of the World, which is my first of his work. #amreading
@paeneultima I finished Death’s End last week. That damn book was very much a rollercoaster. How are you feeling about it now with a few weeks(month+?) to sit on it?
@Mainebot *bows* I’d like to thank my bed for supporting me and my cats for being snuggly
