Twisty the Clown, from American Horror Story: Freak Show, is terrifying.  Quite possibly the scariest thing I've ever seen on the small screen outside of the VT game earlier this year.  <shudders>

Casting Harry Potter into the same bucket as Twilight is blasphemy.   One in an epic coming-of-age story with themes of death, corruption and evil expertly woven throughout the series.  The other is a story of how important it is to have a boyfriend.   I will say you are very right on some of your other choices though.

If you want some football books, I found War As They Knew It and Three and Out to be especially interesting.  They're quite different from each other but provide an interesting look at OSU, Michigan and college football.   Somewhere in the 11W archives, there is a summary of Three and Out.

I would also add Stephan King's It to the list. The Dark Tower Series and It are often regarded as his best works.  I recently finished the 1000+ page It, and It doesn't disappoint.   You wonder why people are afraid of clowns, Pennywise is the reason.   I also really like The Shining as someone else mentioned above and The Green Mile series as well as 11/22/63.

Are you referring to the chatter through the summer that they're going to make his character gay?

As long as Daryl is still alive, they can kill whoever they want.  It will be interesting to see how the cannibal thing plays out.

That kind of makes the bus looks backwards though.

Edit: Also, there won't be any shadows when the bus is returning from the game since it will be long after sunset.

Chase Rice's father, Daniel, played football for Ohio State so it's not a totally random pairing.  He [Chase] also co-wrote the hit Cruise fwiw.

To be fair, he does have a full set of teeth.  Many Arkansas women are likely not used to that.

A word of advice, if you do plan to donate then make an appointment!  I waited for over 90 minutes last year with my appointment in the Wexner Center, the people without were waiting closer to three hours.

Also, not all central Ohio donations count towards the Battle.  I think you have to give on campus or very close to campus to count.

Only in this case, the bully's a nerd wearing a sweater knotted over his shoulders and sporting a sparkling GPA.   hipster wearing dreads knotted over his shoulders and sporting 10 year old Birkenstocks.

 

Fixed that for you.

In the age of media outrage- some faux, some not- how did Brian Kelly keep his job after that poor videographer was killed?   I know that isn't what this post is about but seriously?  Gee "retires" after making Catholic jokes yet someone dies and that isn't enough to oust the guy responsible?

You are exactly right.  I'll be at the Florida A&M game and I am quite disappointed that their band won't be in attendance but I completely understand why.
