    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:

    'One of (Lucas) Cranach's masterpieces, discussed by (Joseph) Koerner, is in it's self-referentiality the perfect expression of left-hemisphere emptiness and a precursor of post-modernism. There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    "Suppose it didn't," said Pooh, after careful thought.
    Piglet was comforted by this.
