Diary of a Breton: journey to Solitude (part 1)

Awake. I started my journey in the forest, not far from some nameless town. Itís nameless because I didnít bother to remember it! The town itself, let me admit, is ugly. It had a strange smell. You really donít need much ti...   0

Are you afraid of the dark?

Two years ago I decided to read 120 Days of Sodom by Marquis De Sade. I only made it halfway through the book before I decided not to finish it - the book was simply too disturbing to read. I thought I can handle the dark ta...   0

Labor Day: Abandon all hope ye who enter here

When Dante's Inferno was announced it had a couple strikes against it right off the bat: it perverted a celebrated piece of classic literature and it shamelessly aped its gameplay from God of War. But screw it, this is vide...   0
