Posts Tagged ‘samhain’

Halloween/Samhain has always been my favorite time of the year. I’ve always been a fan of scary stories and movies. So for the month of October I will be embarking on a series of blog posts I call “Internet Mythology” in which I will showcase form on the web’s most interesting boogieman.  Today I start off with Jeff the Killer.

Though I think most of the source material of the origin of Jeff the Killer is a poorly written piece of teenager fiction, I must say that the face of Jeff into Internet mythology.

The image of a man with large shadowed eyes and wide smiling mouth is most often accompanied by the words “Go to Sleep” Though the words are a reference out of his origin story, I always equate this to a long night of browsing the internet to stumble on this image and two thought come to mind. One is that it’s late and i should go to bed, but some where in the back of my mind the second thought says that is just what this smiling face wants me to do.

Jeffs back story and appearance may have been inspired by the Joker of the Batman comic books according to TVtropes.com.  A chemical alteration caused his face to be bleached white with his own hideous reflection breaking his sanity. Though Self inflicted, his mouth is carved open into what is called a “Glasgow Grin”.  The back story of the Joker is never completely spelled out and in many ways left a mystery; as the Comic book villain would say, “If your going to have a past, It might as well be multiple choice.”

Enjoy a some wonderful reading of the first Jeff the Killer story from my favorite Youtube ‘Pasta reader MrCreepypasta. You don’t have to look at the image if you don’t really want to but his voice makes the bad writing  bearable. Even with the plot holes…

So as you know, October marks so many things I love. First of all, my birthday is on the way, Fall comes into swing and Samhain is coming! I know you don’t need reminding from me about any of this as i’m sure many of you are already looking forward to the day.

My first day of work will come today (by the time this is posted, I will be there) and i hope that this blog can get into full swing.

Upcoming is my “Internet Mythology” series where I will delve into some of the “boogie-men of the internet”. Though not truly a pagan series I think it could be a fun bit of posts for the season.

That’s already i need to say….

Now with all that being said, how many of us as starting out solitaries were unsure of how to pronounce Samhain? It took a song about the holiday season for it to get in my head that i was an idiot. good thing i was solitary or that could have been really really embarrassing. Actually i can apply this story to every other Sabbat other then Yule and Beltane….

Anyway, Trial and error.
