Cancel your appointments. Unplug the fax machine. Log out of Twitter.com. Send the kids to the in-laws’ house. Tranquilize your pet(s) with a potent yet non-lethal prescription-grade barbiturate. Wrap your phone in several scarves or old bedsheets until it is isolated within a distraction-muffling core of fabric about two-feet thick on all sides. Move the roast from the top rack to the middle rack and turn the heat down to about 200. You are now ready to experience the nirvana-like consciousness that this remix of Jeff Goldblum’s weird jaguar-like laugh from the helicopter scene of Jurassic Park imparts upon all living souls. #Om #Shanti

As a companion to our scary book rec post yesterday, here’s Flavorwire’s list of The 50 Scariest Short Stories, with links to read some of them online.

A story on Newsy yesterday proclaimed that after all of his recent troubles, Shia LaBeouf is geting us to like him again. LaBeouf is currently on a press tour for his new movie Fury, and he has been opening up to various talk show hosts about all the misbehaving he has done. This include strange performance art, grabbing Alan Cumming’s ass, and getting into what seems like over a thousand fights.
This turtle has better moves than me.
This video is from an old Cracked article called the 6 Most Eerily Convincing Ghost Videos On YouTube, and fair warning, there are some super creepy screenshots at that link. Most of the videos are obvious but well-done short films that aren’t trying to pass for real ghost videos, but this one is interesting because the footage is so comparatively crappy:
Scene setting: A crisp, New England fall evening. As it rains on and off, a group begins to form around a large sculpture grouping memorializing the Irish Potato Famine. Huddled under umbrellas, pulling our jacket collars up against the wind, friends and strangers gather around a gent named Hank. . .
