Thank you for your comments! Yes I thought YTMND needs some non-fad stuff now and then. Also fixed stuff again. And yes, the original "M" caption would be nice.

I like it, but the music isn't nearly as creepy as I'd like it to be. It's simply too serene.

I bought that book in New York City, in some little mystery book shop hidden away somewhere. It's quite small and morbid, but certainly a classic. Lovely ytmnd.

I must say it was quite morbid indeed, but at least it thinned out the gene pool a bit.
August 15th, 2006

the music doesn't quite fit it. the book is supposed to offer a macabre humor, not a sad collection of deaths. right now, the music is sort of sad, and reminiscent, where it should be evil and sinister

3 of them seriously creeped me out with good reason. Living in New England means frozen lakes, so getting stuck in ice is quite real. Falling in a drain, namely a sewage drain was one of my biggest fears as a little kid, cause you don't want to die in complete darkness with no escape. The 3rd creepy one was being swept out to sea. A lot of the local beaches are known to have nasty riptides.
