Shark Week

Get ready my friends – Shark Week 2022 is coming! The Discovery Channel has been hard at work preparing an entire menu to satisfy its viewers. They’re ready to satisfy our every shark-related craving.

Why are dolls always possessed by evil angry spirits? The more real a doll looks, the creepier it seems. Why do some people find them so creepy, you ask?

The Judas Cradle is yet another torture device invented by some fucked up guy back in medieval times.  (Although there is always speculation as to when these things were really invented.) . It seems that devices for torturing a person’s sexual organs were a particular favorite…

My Favorite Australian

Artist, musician, madman, recreational psychopath”. This is how my friend Michael describes himself. But he forgot to add “really sweet guy”. When we spun the Scary Matter globe and landed in Australia, I immediately thought of him. Who better to get ideas from than a native Aussie?

Phobias You Might Not Have Heard Of

Everyone is afraid of something – Whether they admit it or not. Spiders, snakes, heights, and clowns. Things like that. But those things don’t interfere with their lives. When they see something that they’re afraid of, they react for maybe a couple of minutes – then they move along. But that isn’t always the case.
