Though it’s April, far from the time when pop culture was full of ghosts and goblins and such, in that terrifying season where we hope that the sun isn’t dying once and for all, it’s still a time when scary things are on our minds.  It’s a time of year where your humble MS-QOTD (whose dreams, it must be noted, are constant and vivid) tends to move towards dark and foreboding dreams, occasionally bordering on nightmares.  Of course, what brought this all to mind was the fact that, after a recent ‘Why Do You Hate Me’ review of which I wish to never speak again, I had a truly terrifying (albeit candy-colored and a little bit cartoony) night terror.  It was so unnerving as to even wake me up, but thankfully didn’t recur when I got back to sleep, though it did lead to today’s trenchant query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) made the mistake of watching ‘Full Metal Jacket’ right before bed once, a mistake I’ll never make again, asking: Has any pop culture experience ever given you a nightmare?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.
