Random Musings: Slightly Spooky/Creepy/Horror-ish Books, Games, Movies, & More for Scaredy Cats

I know it's a bit late this year since October is almost over, but blog posts are timeless! And perhaps I'll add to this list in the future if I discover more slightly spooky stuff to recommend (which is why I included the "and more" bit, since I might end up adding podcasts or something), since who knows if I'll ever find enough in the future to make a whole part two. Anyway, I don't normally...

Update: Life and Books (Sep 2021)

I truly do not know how to start these posts anymore. September is over? October is starting? Hello, welcome, I’ve survived another month, and I’m glad you have too?? I’ve been jumping around between a lot of games lately, most of which have not been good for my head/eye problem, but sometimes I just need...

Important Announcement: New URL

Hey everyone! This is a post to let all my followers know I'm changing from https://metaphorsandmoonlight.com to https://metaphorsandmoonlight.com It's the exact same blog, just a different web address! I've transferred my Wordpress, email, and Bloglovin followers already, so those should be good, but some of you may use Feedly or other methods. So please check whatever method you use to...

Update: Life and Books (Aug 2021)

Another month, another monthly post in which I have to figure out what to talk about. I played some of the games I bought in the Steam sale last month! The Starfighter: Eclipse game, the one I'd wanted for a long time, was unfortunately a disappointment. Monster Hunting... for Love was fun though. I also played a bunch of very quick, free games by npckc on itch.io. They were cute, and my...

Update: Life and Books (July 2021)

I'm not sure what I did in July. Not much, to be honest. I bought a few games in the Steam sale that I thought might be accessible with some sort of TTS only to find most of them weren't, so I returned one. Kept one because it was 50% off and a game I'd wanted for a long time. One was partially accessible and only a couple dollars, so I kept it too. And the last was also only a few dollars and...

Update: Life and Books (June 2021) + Late Mermay Art!

Let's see, what did I do in June... I finally watched Cats (2019)! To be honest, I didn't hate it. It was weird, like everyone said, but some of the songs were fun, and I liked the dancing. I loved the Magical Mr. Mistoffelees! Munkustrap was pretty adorable too. I think most of the weirdness was just from the original story making no sense (from what I know of it), rather than the movie...

Update: Life and Books (May 2021) + Mermay Art!

I know I technically did one of these posts last month (even though I skipped some parts), but it feels like it's been so long since my last update. I became Twitter famous since we last talked! Just kidding, but I did have a tweet go viral. It was a wild experience for someone who normally gets 10 likes on a good day. Anyway, if I was going to have a viral tweet (or thread, in this case), I'm...

Update: Life and Books (Apr 2021)

This isn't going to be a full update with all the books I've read and everything. It's more a quick update to say my head/eye problem has gotten really bad again, I can't look at my computer or phone without headaches, so my blogging has slowed. For now, until I'm feeling a bit better, I'm posting blog posts I already have finished. That means I'll run out of book reviews soon, but I have some...

Update: Life and Books (Mar 2021) + I Finally Made Some Art!

So it appears we've made it through March? I've been pushing myself too hard because I need the mental distraction, but that means a lot of headaches, and I banged my bad foot against something, and I temporarily hurt my arm (though it seems back to usual tennis elbow pain now), so not my best month. But I made some art! Something I have not done for almost a year. And I really, really love it....

Love to Listen: Audio Drama Reviews – Peter Pan, Interview with the Robot, Beezer

I had an Audible subscription for a few months last year, and each month they offered a selection of Audible Originals, so I had the chance to listen to a few. Me being me, I always went for the sci-fi and fantasy options! I was new to audio dramas (and still haven't listened to many), but they can be a fun break from books since they don't have narration but do have full casts and sound...
