    I've enjoyed this series a lot. Written from the perspective of a Search And Rescue agent retelling their experiences with weird shit in the wilderness

    There's more than a couple gems in the roughness of nosleep

    fuck, the forest spooks me out so bad

    My friend's house backs up onto some woods, and you can hear deer screams sometimes and it's like, I know it's a deer

    but in my heart of hearts I know it's the fucking Goatman

    Deer make some awful goddamn sounds.

    Also! I know I've harped on it a couple times but if you enjoy the S&R posts on nosleep, check out David Paulides' turns as a guest on Coast to Coast AM, real spooky stuff.

    The David Paulides stuff freaks me right the fuck out. There was one episode of C2C: AM where Art Bell asked him if he thought it was aliens or something like that making all these people go missing, and David responded with something like "I wish it were something that simple." Sent chills down my spine, prime spooks.

    That's one thing about Paulides, he really attempts to not speculate on causes and stuff, at least from what I've heard. He's an investigator, he looks at facts and how they're connected and leaves the readers or listeners to draw their own conclusions.

    the thing I like about internet spooks in particular is that they tend towards the first person or blog posts or youtubes and a sort of little kid earnestness, "no really, he was tall as a tree and he had too many arms!" and I can pretend that the world has this weird unknowable underside, where terror is creeping and fantastical

    like, I can just sit and listen to Welcome to Nightvale and pretend that the world possesses this weird, indifferent, fatal magic

    instead of the regular old mundane horror that the real world is full of

    like, I can just sit and listen to Welcome to Nightvale and pretend that the world possesses this weird, indifferent, fatal magic

    instead of the regular old mundane horror that the real world is full of

    I've read some interesting essays on the feeling of place in a narrative that point out that the creeping and fantastical terror mainly exists in a literary setting because, in the real world, the fear is too immediate to appreciate its specific qualities.

    Like, on paper, a rip in your oxygen tank on the first trip to Mars is a pretty unique terror. You're alone in this alien landscape, and you are slowly dying because you do not belong. You're faced with the dawning realization of your own cosmic insignificance, the unique nature of your world in a grand pattern, and both the bravery and the arrogance that brought you to this place. And maybe, in hindsight once you've gotten back to safety, some of that sticks.

    But in the moment, it's just "Oh fuck oh fuck I'm gonna die oh fuck", no different than if you were about to be hit by a bus.

    There was a weird thing were people were remembering it as the Berenstain Bears and a group of people who remember it as the Berenstein Bears. I don't really get it but people were freaking out about it.

    Wait is it seriously just people remember the spelling wrong? Man it was always stain. I vividly remember as a kid reading the name and pronouncing it stain because I noticed it was different than Frankenstein.

    I don't even understand the bear name thing. Can someone explain it simply?

    People spent their childhoods misreading the name "The Berenstain Bears" as "The Berenstein Bears." "Berenstain" is kind of a weird last name, while "Berenstein" fits into a much more common naming convention with many famous examples, so most of them never caught the mistake as children. Then they spent a decade or two not thinking about it at all, since they are children's books. Then they re-encountered the name as adults, and a small fraction of them made the oddly narcissistic leap that this very minor memetic hiccup was proof that we are living in an alternate timeline from the one they grew up in.

    Then they went to Reddit and posted about it, and a bunch of other people either agreed or ironically shitposted that they agreed, and now here we are in the darkest Berenstain timeline.

    The genie thing is similar, but with the uncomfortable twist that it involves not being able to tell two black guys apart.

    I love the narcissistic leap from, miss remember a name to living in an alternate reality. Because of course that is the simplest explanation. Alternate reality. No possibly way a person could just be wrong. nope.

    Like, Berenstein being Berenstain I'm willing to chalk up to my dumb kid memory cause I can't find my old books to prove it. But I will swear up and down I saw Shazam when it was on the Disney Channel once and I have never seen Kazzam in my life.

    Being a little harsh don't ya think?
    The entire Stein/Stain thing was, like, 90% a joke, and in most cases was written about in the style of a creepypasta or non-scientific thought experiment. The most serious it got was when science educators used it as a jumping off point to discuss how memory remains subjective with time.
    At worst it's a simplistic story idea that is going to end up being dredged up for someone to make money off of at some later date because it went viral.

    It also seems ridiculous to call it narcissistic when the entire concept relies on community input rather than on an individual. The Stein/Stain thing would be nothing without other people and doesn't rely on any one individual or even any one group. The whole thing centers on two groups that are similar in every way but one. One group remembers Berenstein, and the other remembers Berenstain.

    like, I can just sit and listen to Welcome to Nightvale and pretend that the world possesses this weird, indifferent, fatal magic

    instead of the regular old mundane horror that the real world is full of

    I love Nightvale simply because of its subtlty to what should be horror. You got 5 headed dragons running for mayor. A sentient Glow Cloud [ALL HAIL THE GLOW CLOUD] as head of the PTA. And Strexcorp is all a plow to spread the glory of a Smiling God.

    Its those 5 sentience peaks into the darkness that give those fridge horror moments. Like the episode where Cecil takes the portal and ends up in the Desert Bluffs Radio studio.


    Its tied up in the book but if you got audible I'd highly suggest getting the Welcome to Nightvale book from there to find out more about the Man with the deer skin briefcase. Cecil narrates pretty much the whole thing. Comes out more like a audio drama.

    I thought Sinbad was in a genie movie that was roughly contemporaneous with the Shaq movie, but some cursory googling makes me think I must have conflated the Adventures of Sinbad with the Sinbad Show. I don't think I ever watched either show ever, but I probably saw commercials/was vaguely aware of their existence. They both have Sinbad in their names and I was in like fifth grade, so that's probably it.
