The Asylum: Psychiatric Clinic for Abused Cuddly Toys

I especially like the no suicide sign.

One of my favorite flash games ever, The Asylum. Takes a while to play.

Spooky flash games

Paranormal State's Hidden Spirits. You get to work on your own paranormal investigation. Takes a while to play.

Exmortis & Exmortis 2. Pretty creepy. A bit of gore and some depressing storylines, so not for the easily disturbed. I'm already disturbed, so I'm ok with it.

The Hilarious House of Frightenstein: Truly Trippy TV

Asylum Eclectica

I haven't gotten too far into Asylum Eclectica, but it certainly looks freakishly fun. Be sure to check the Morbid Fact Du Jour for really morbid facts every day. Obviously.

I spotted this little kitty as a thumbnail and clicked it right away. Seeing the rest of the picture made me smile...

This is a picture of our cat Machete watching a man fall to his death wearing ill-fitting shoes. Like this one it was a pic done for a Webuyyourkids job and was rejected as some album artwork. The brief was to "make it dark". So we submitted these. The feedback was "not that dark". Which made me smile.

Plently more eerie art (lots of skulls!) over at
Found through, well, FFFOUND!.

Recreated Shining set for commercial

This is quite neat: Channel 4 in the UK has recreated the set of Stanley Kubrick’s horror film The Shining - complete with crew and cast-member look-a-likes - for a TV ad:

Viewers get Kubrick’s point of view as he walks through the set, ending up in his director’s chair as the crew prepare to shoot the famous scene of Danny Torrance, the son of Duvall and Jack Nicholson’s characters, riding round and round the deserted corridors of the Overlook Hotel.

The promo, filmed as a single tracking shot with a cast of 55 actors, was meticulously researched to "remain as faithful as possible to the period in which it was shot and the culture of the British studio in the late 1970s".

Link | If the video didn’t work for you, check out the clip at The Fire Wire - Thanks Larry!

To make things easier, I've embeded the clip here.

Freedom To Express by Shelly Wiseberg

Shelly, a prolific poet, has given me the honour of letting me do the photograph for her latest book cover! This being the first publication of my photography! Inside it says something to the effect of "Cover art by DK Rising used with permission of the photographer". I feel blessed, proud, purposeful, and ecstatic.

Freedom To Express is a collection of poetry on a variety of subjects from personal experiences and observations on the human condition written from the heart and depth of soul of one on the path of spiritual healing towards personal growth.

Buy the paperback or download of Freedom To Express HERE.
