    In anticipation of this sequel, I'm gonna start re-reading The Shining tonight/whenever I can catch time to decompress.

    Haven't read it since elementary & jr. high school. (Stephen King books practically raised me, haha)

    Gotta refresh my memory. It's cool to see how the voices, textures, & tones within the story tend to shift over time with one's perspective.

    I don't always enjoy family guy, but this video seemed apt:

    "An upsidedown wire heart
    Being sucked into a periscope
    Still the mind is dull
    Like you need another excuse"

    … a theory is primarily a form of insight, i.e. a way of looking
    at the world, and not a form of knowledge of how the world is….
    .. all our different ways of thinking are to be considered as
    different ways of looking at the one reality, each with some
    domain in which it is clear and adequate….
