“ Of each particular thing ask: what is it in itself? What is its nature?” – Hannibal Lecter quoting Marcus Aurelius

I am a Horror nut. For a number of years, Horror was all that I read. Stephen King, Peter Straub, H.P. Lovecraft, a number of blogs including the amazing chiaroscuro.com which, regrettably folded. I enjoy movies, though usually not as much as the books.

But every once in a while, a gem appears. Like Alien – pure horror that just accidentally is set in a Sci Fi realm. Or Silence of the Lambs. A murder mystery that crosses over to Thriller/horror. These tend to be the movies that excite me.

But here is where I get to bring my own personal fascination with the elements of horror into our own weary existence here in the matrix. When a quote by Hannibal Lecter can become a guiding principle in life.

I use this quote when listening to and reading the lamestream media. Ask what really is going on that they are reporting about. For example, I will take the most prominent headlines on a subject from a number of different news sites and see where it takes us. The Subject: Portland Oregon Protests:

MSNBC – “Veteran beaten by Federal Agents in Portland Speaks Out” –

CNN – “Breaking Down What’s Going on in Portland”

FOXNEWS – “Avoid the Area:  Portland protesters clash with feds as downtown violence escalates overnight”
