Being Alone, Creepy, and Life: 0 A MISSOURI COUPLE SUED THE SELLER OF A HOUSE, FROM WHOM THEY HAD BOUGHT IT, WHEN THEY DISCOVERED THAT BROWN RECLUSE SPIDERS WERE "BLEEDING OUT OF THE WALLS." IT WAS ESTIMATED BY AN EXPERT THAT AROUND 4,000 5,000 SPIDERS HAD INFESTED THE HOUSE. WHY IS BLACK AND WHITE SO CREEPY? - SUBMITTED BY LUKKYNUMBER โ€ข Did you ever notice that black & white movies are much creepier, in a way, than modern-day color films? Not more horrific, per se, as sheer terror can be brought on by graphic imagery, modern special effects, and myriad lighting tricks that are readily available in today's movies. But there's just something very unnerving about old Twilight Zone shows, for instance, with the grainy white & charcoal filling up the screen. And don't get me started about the creepy music from back then! But the way some movies from the 40s & 50s look, they're just very... unsettling. Part of the reason why is because everything in them is so foreign. People dressed different back then, and talked different; they were scared differently too. The horror movies from the '30s are an entirely different genre than horror from the '50s. Have you seen the early zombie flicks, like Night of the Living Dead? You can't tell me that the black & white isn't creepy shit. The original Psycho? Blood splattered on the wall in that film puts me on edge in a unique way, because it's a malignant black coating, instead of the red that we know blood to look like in real life. Do you know why black & white movies are truly scarier though? Distraction, or lack thereof. In modern cinema, there are literally thousands of different colors, shades, & combinations to distract your eye. You don't realize it but our eyes are constantly darting back and forth all over the screen, so even the most hellish monster is only capturing PART of our attention. The rest of our eyeballs are glued to the wallpaper in the background, the table in the foreground, etc. In a black & white picture, we are almost watching a blank slate of imagery. So the slightest movement of the monster, we see. The way the protagonist gingerly creeps down a dark staircase, we see her and her alone. We aren't distracted by brilliant lights and colors, so we feel a different kind of primal fear than what we feel watching in color. Distraction is a tool. While you've been reading my drivel, did you even notice my footsteps go into your child's bedroom?

Batman, Blockbuster, and Crying: alIISTORYO EBATMAN THERE WOULD BE NO DARK KNIGHT HISTORY HEBATMAN WITH R.D.R ADAM WEST Today has been a hard one for me Gothamites. To be honest, I've been crying throughout the day once hearing about the death of Adam West. The "Batman" tv series in the late 1960s was my first introduction to Batman, always watched the reruns and instantly was captivated by the POP art status of the show. Ever since I watched those episodes, I wanted to watch more and especially read more stories about this character. I wouldn't be your Dark Knight Archivist I am today without Adam West as the Caped Crusader. Adam West's important role as the Batman goes beyond my fandom. Before the tv show began, Batman comics were diving in sales. Once Batmania hit, a resurgence of fandom for both readers and those watching at home happened and it literally resurrected the desire for Batman to continue in DC Comics. The 1966 show led to the popularity of characters like Barbara Gordon's Batgirl and even to the reinvention of its Gothic mythology in the 1970s, issuing in a whole new world for the Dark Knight in the 1980s. Once the "dark" back in Dark Knight returned, adult graphic novels and blockbuster films happened, giving us movie franchises that we continue to see today. Whether or not you are a fan of the "campy" nature of Adam West and Burt Ward's Dynamic Duo of the 1960s, there is no denying that without West becoming the pop culture icon from this series, the Batman you love today either wouldn't be here or wouldn't be the powerhouse hero that Batman is within DC Comics and Warner Bros. This is why Adam West's Batman IS THE Batman. His Caped Crusader is the one that paved the way for all the other Batman media we love from film to tv to video games. You don't have to love the camp but you should respect it. This and the fact that Mr. West was one of the nicest people are just some of many other reasons why he will truly be missed in this world. Farewell, Old Chum, we'll always leave the Bat-signal on for you. Thanks for following and we'll have more History of the Batman soon. RIPBatman โœŒ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿฆ‡๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ
