13th…

In celebration of the last three Friday the 13ths, I’ve run a personal toy photography challenge wherein I use a Jason Voorhees toy of some sort in a series of photos for the Monday thru Friday leading up to the 13th.

The five photos get tagged with the hashtag #AWeekOfVictims and the intent is that it would feature Jason killing or stalking or otherwise menacing some other toy.

For the last two challenges, I actually wrote poetic couplets to accompany each photo. It’s kinda fun and turns it into a creative writing challenge as well.

Here are the results from the first celebration of 2023…

Perhaps this face off was a flaw.

Why bring a twig to a machete fight?

Can Egon and Lucky spirit away
The towering menace that stands in their way?

Your day is finally here, my friend.
But now your story comes to an end.

 

Next batch coming in October. In fact, our anniversary will be Friday the 13th. I may have to up my game for that series of photos.

In the last year, I’ve found myself rewatching some of those tripped out 80s kids/teen fantasy/sci-fi movies. Why? To see if they’re really as weird as I remember them being. Or, if they were movies I’d never seen, to figure...

I swear I watch way too many horror movies to ever want to own a basement. The A Nightmare on Elm Street series. It. Barbarian. Motherly. Us. Hell to the nope.
