Music, Footnotes & Ephemera

First section’s music is from the Omen score. Creeeepy. Then you’ve got that instrumental from Magical Mystery Tour and a piece from the score from The Cove, that documentary about the cove in Japan where almost all of the show and research sea mammals come from, and the f’d up ways that the Japanese Gov’t hides its existence.

    I had to write this down word for word. I told it around a camp fire of kids between 10-13. Really creeped them out!

    This is missing something fairly obvious: what started the panic? My guess would be a case, or several cases, of sleep paralysis. Legs don’t work? Shadowy, sinister hallucinations? That sounds like sleep paralysis, all right. People used to assume it was demonic possession because it was so obviously supernatural. These days, a few nutjobs assume they were abducted by aliens for the same reason. But in between, when there was no rationalization, it wouldn’t be hard at all for someone to assume something like this.

    As you said, mass hysteria would do the rest.
