This Footage of a Wooden Doll Being Made is Just Very Peaceful and Satisfying

We, as a blog, are clearly very drawn to dolls for whatever perverse reasons we can’t control or explain. They fill us with terror and revulsion, and yet we cannot look away. So when you hear me say that this video is NOT AT ALL CREEPY OR HORRID, I wouldn’t blame you if you called me a goddamned liar right to my face. But I swear it isn’t. Categorizing this as a doll video almost seems unfair, because it’s really about a super-talented guy making something lovely out of a few ugly lumps of wood. It even leaves you with a vicarious sense of fulfillment at having joined him in his craft for a few minutes.

You know what? Maybe dolls aren’t so bad after all, you guys. Then again

  1. I feel like I just had a therapy session. That was so soothing.

    And I want one of these dolls, because surely nothing made with such care would ever turn evil. It would probably protect you against other possessed dolls.

    I don’t think i’m mentally prepared to click the “then again” link.

    I loved every second of that. I’ve always gotten a lot of enjoyment and relaxation watching people paint or draw or just use their hands to make something, which is why I love watching Bob Ross. Well, that and his obviously very soothing voice.

    I’ve done a terrible thing.

    This post reminded me that I have something to tell you guys. I realize a lot of you have an affinity for ghosts and all things haunted, and I totally respect that. I used to feel the same way, but since I had a kid, the very special fear-based part of my brain meant to protect my offspring has gone ballistic. Because of this, my daily (hourly) thoughts of actual real, living possible dangers and horrors has been more than enough for me. This is a long version of saying I don’t want to think about haunted. But this morning, I woke up at about 5 AM because the overhead chandelier had been turned on. I didn’t do it, and my son didn’t do it. I am a very light sleeper and am very sensitive to where he is at any given moment (see above), even while sleeping. So, what gives? I know it was off, because I stumbled to bed in the dark. It’s a dimmer light turn-style thingy. Do those sometimes turn on by themselves?

    • Yeah, it’s probably just an issue with the dimmer or the wiring. I had one once that was really old and the room would slowly get darker and darker (or vice versa) and by the time you’d notice, it would be completely off or on. I’d have someone look at it if it keeps happening.

        Your description of that makes me feel better and worse.

          If we leave our hall light on, sometimes it will turn itself off and on again. I assume it’s shitty electrical work. It’s not a dimmer switch, and it is weird when it happens.
