I don't know much about art, but I know what I like.
It's coming. Coming soon. Only about two months away now.

That time when all God-fearing people must take desperate measures to keep wretched, unholy abominations away from their homes and loved ones.

That time when evil will disguise itself as the innocent, then talk you into giving it something valuable. And God help you if you don't give in to their demands.

That time when all sorts of nightmarish tales abound of the dreadful, inhuman monsters that hide in plain sight among us.

Oh yes, you know of what I speak, even if the truth is too terrifying to behold.

Election Day is coming this November.

One thing I'll say in favor of Communism: at least you aren't harassed with obnoxious campaigns from sleazy politicians. No stupid recall elections, no Democrat-vs-Republican rhetoric, no Lock Up Hillary bullshit. Those damned campaign flyers are showing up in my mailbox again. Not only is this a shameless abuse of the United States Postal Service, the potheads in Madison who've been shipping out these flyers are already a step ahead of me: these flyers are made of some sort of fire-resistant material. It took me a good fifteen minutes to dispose of an anti-Hillary leaflet with an ordinary gas lighter. And that just won't do.

On the other hand, my absolute favorite holiday is coming up soon: Halloween. I'm too old to Trick-or-Treat, and too young to die, but that doesn't mean I can't still have some fun. I'm currently knee-deep in the works of Edgar Allen Poe, Robert Louis Stevenson, H. P. Lovecraft, and a number of less-talented horror writers. Plenty of good reading material here. Hopefully, this will be the last bit of inspiration I need for writing my own horror fiction.
  • Listening to: Irish pub music
  • Reading: The Dunwich Horror
  • Watching: Ghost Adventures

To my watchers: just curious, why'd you decide to watch this account?

Ian Brost
Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
United States
Current Location: Neenah, Wisconsin
Religious Affiliation: Lutheran
Political Affiliation: None
Race: Hobbit (yes, I'm 6'5" and wear shoes. What's your point?)
Ethnicity: German-American
Moral Alignment: chaotic evil // neutral // chaotic good lawful good?
Preferred Character Class: Lore Master // Thief // Archer

I have Asperger Syndrome (… ), which gives me a little trouble with talking to people. I manage fairly well, but it's not always easy. It's kind of like speaking English as a second language.

My favorite activity is reading. My favorite genre is science fiction, but I will read almost anything.

I enjoy things weird, creepy, macabre, strange, and unusual. Naturally, Halloween was my favorite holiday as a kid. Even now, the whole month of October resets my age by about 15 years.

My favorite subject is history. The 18th and 19th centuries in particular I find interesting.

Be warned, I have a terrible sense of humor! But I think it's much better to be able to laugh at bad jokes than to be unable to laugh at anything at all, and a sense of humor has helped me to get through some very difficult times over the years.

Places I have traveled to:
Chicago, Illinois (2003, 2004, 2006)
Daytona, Florida (2015)
Dubuque, Iowa (2004, 2006)
Indianapolis, Indiana *needs to fix their $%&@ potholes*(2016)

Grand Admiral Thrawn is back in the canon universe. Timothy Zahn himself is writing a new book that will be canon that focuses entirely on Thrawn during the Galactic Civil War before Episode IV!!!!!!!!!!!
