Creative Minds – “Stop being such a child”


Good Evening my creeps.

I would like to take a moment out to discuss one of my biggest pet peeves. When I use my creativity I get told “Stop being such a child.” As if it’s a bad thing to be a creative person within the world. You see, being creative and having an imagination as an adult doesn’t make you less of an adult — it makes you a more successful one. Those “adults” that go around telling the creative people to “stop being such a child” are actually the children. They go through life playing house and doing what they are told they should be doing as an individual their age should be doing.

Without creative people we wouldn’t have technology, advances in life, entertainment, books, music, etc. We would all be bland and boring walking around talking like Charlie Brown’s teacher and hopped up on pills. At 21, I’ve learned a lot from the adults around me. They always tell me the same thing: “Don’t live for others” “Don’t do what I did” “Don’t loose heart” And, it made me realize it’s because they wish they could re-live their youth and do things differently. The shell ages and grows cold. But the soul lasts forever.

One Step Beyond (T.V. Series Review)


Dearest Creeps,

Lately, I have been dwelling in the depths of vintage television series. I must say that I am ashamed at myself for almost forgetting one of my favorite vintage television shows:

This television series was the underdog of the popular television series, The Twilight Zone. The original run of this series was from 1959 – 1961. It’s a shame it only had three seasons because it was much different from the Twilight Zone. This series was introduced by John Newland in each episode. Unlike Twilight Zone which was a series composed of fictional science fiction and horror stories to stimulate your brain, One Step Beyond is a show that re-created REAL cases that have been documented. What I like about the show is that they don’t tell you if the tales are true or false. It’s up to the audience to come to their own conclusion and wonder the wonderful question: “What if…” It’s like a constant cliff hanger that would drive a nerd such as myself to research the cases presented for more information to come to a well thought out conclusion.

I always enjoy shows that are based upon documented cases. It’s good to see this series up on Youtube with a channel dedicated to these marvelous episodes. If you like shows such as Twilight Zone, Night Gallery, The Outer Limits, etc. and are a huge vintage nerd, check out the episode below:

Thanks for wasting time with my existence.
