098-Buried Alive?

Play

PREMATURE BURIAL
To die is natural; but the living death
Of those who waken into consciousness,
Though for a moment only, ay, or less,
To find a coffin stifling their last breath,
Surpasses every horror underneath
The sun of Heaven, and should surely check
Haste in the living to remove the wreck
Of what was just before, the soul’s fair sheath,
How many have been smothered in their shroud!
How many have sustained this awful woe!
Humanity would shudder could we know
How many have cried to God in anguish loud,
Accusing those whose haste a wrong had wrought
Beyond the worst that ever devil thought.

097-Blobs?

Play

Beware of the blob, it creeps
And leaps and glides and slides
Across the floor
Right through the door
And all around the wall
A splotch, a blotch
Be careful of the blob

080- The Donner Party?

Play

There have been many horrific tragedies in the United States but none seem so gruesome as the Donner party. The party was enticed to take a short cut to California instead of the well traveled trail. Many members of the wagon train would not make it to their final destination. The party, being trapped by massive snow storms in the Sierra mountains, we forced to survive by unusual means.


069-Curses?

Curses, jinxes and hexes have a life as long as human history. Some curses can follow families or objects while others are associated with areas or buildings. Diametrically opposite of the blessing, the curse remains a lingering belief to this day.

044-Absinthe?

Play

Absinthe make the mind wander. Some call it the Green Fairy. Some call it a Devil in a Bottle. We call it very refreshing.

Today for the end of the Halloween season we dive into the green world of Absinthe. The ban has been lifted on absinthe after a century and we couldn’t be happier. We try several cocktails including the Sazerac, a Corpse Reviver #2 and a Slow Death in the Afternoon. Of course we also try it straight and the traditional drip method. We gave the Bohemian method a try by lighting it on fire to not the greatest effect.

We want to thank our friend Mike for corrupting this episode with us! Check out his blog Dust & Corruption here.
