As you know,I love Junji Ito, I get scared easily, but somehow his gruesome depictions of the dead and the monsters are kind of poetic to me. Weird, I know. I just don’t get scared easily with is mangas.

Today I was thinking about giving Uzumaki another read (5th, 6th?), as it is my favorite manga. And decided to compile some of the pictures from different Junji Ito works, for the sake of remembering it all.
This time I am showing you the Museum of horror and Lovesick dead (otherwise known as ‘The undying love’) the last one being one of my favorite stories.
The first one is the Museum of Terror (1 and 2). A collection of short stories covering from classic ghostly stories to doppelgangers

One of my favorites, The Undying Love (otherwise known as Lovesick dead), telling the love story and troubles of a very young couple living in a town haunted by what they know as ‘the intersection’s handsome boy’. This one got me wanting to play intersection fortune telling.

The Future starts slow

This song makes me think of you. You already know it, cause I shared it with you like a week ago or something…

It kind of reminds me of what I told you last week, about dragging me to hell and all.

Whatever, I’m an over sharer, but I actually don’t want to share this, so I really don’t want to talk about it, at least not here, but it’s just, a lot of things have been so “you-centric” and I’m enjoying it…

I know this is not the regular channel, but it’s pretty awesome to have you in my life.

And this song is actually great and I can’t stop listening to it, which is a good change considering what I normally listen to…

Writing here, even something that doesn’t make much sense, makes me feel good and in touch with myself.. Idk…

But I’ll never give you up, if I ever give you up
My heart will surely fail…

BWotW: Weeks, Years…

Originally written on Big Words on the Walls, October 3rd, 2010:

These last few weeks I’ve been feeling not quite myself. As if I was anyone to begin with.

Last week I took part of this documentary project about suicide and self-aggression. Cathartic, yet not… A lot of open wounds left open and bleeding, a lot of sadness. I had a recorded interview and was photographed for about 4 hours.  It left me exhausted, happier yet sadder. That’s life

I am bored.

Today, I’ve been cleaning my bedroom in Leon. I found these notebooks I wrote for myself back in junior high full with notes, descriptions, events and stuff. There are about 12 or 13 of them, all of them telling the story of how I became what I became then, and what I swore myself to never became again. Letters and notes, countless of writing relating how I used to behave, how I used to think, how others used to visualize me and attempted to save me from my own doom as if I needed them to save me.

I was a loon and as soon as I got out I promised myself to never go back. I swore myself I would never, ever, ever be that girl, and I would never ever ever let the thoughts win over me again, no matter how constant they were, and I would never ever ever think about it. And it was all long forgotten. But it wasn’t.

I tried living with the vertigo as if it was the fear of falling, instead of the desire to throw yourself out there.

That’s why I write here. Cause I know the outcome, and even though I refuse to become someone elses redemption, I still demand my own redemption…

I Ended up substituting 7 years of paper writing with 7 years of online ephimeral writing. I never had to own it up as I was still the anonymous writer of those sorrowful words. I filled my life with fanfiction and Angels, and Girls of red eyes as red as their head and dreams as It meant salvation and chance. As it meant belonging.

But lately…

There are no more angels, no red girls, and it’s been years since the last time I cared about fanfiction…

I don’t have words or things or anything to keep me stucked in this place. I don’t have anything to tie me onto, so I don’t disappear. I’m going to float any moment soon…

And nothing is going to stop it, as I see…

A long time ago, there were these blogs named spaces by Microsoft, I loved them with a passion, but for some reason they ended up closing, and offered to move your content to WordPress. I did. And I just bumped into this jewels of an old-time me.

Oh, boy, I was a little idiot back then. I’m going to reproduce things I find there, for amusement and to remember.

First, an introduction of myself

My name is Tomie Kourai (It still is), That is a name I’ve chosen for myself. I am about to turn 25 (almost 5 years ago), and just figuring out what I want to do with my life (still am, I guess). I am a single child from a divorced mom, I have a boyfriend I deeply love (Pff… the boyfriend is done and dusted), I enjoy the whole learning process, and sometimes life is a burden. I’ve been involved in self-destructive behaviors for about 13 years (Bad habits are hard to die), I sometimes recover, and sometimes relapse (Still do). I have problems coping with reality. I don’t eat fruits, My best creative work comes out to life at night and I was once on a hospital for depressive anorexia. I tend to mock my own life. I like to write on both Ingles & Spanish (OMG, what a pretentious little idiot I was to write it like this). I love myself, but I have some huge insecurities I am working on. I am usually a very happy person despite what this brief introduction may lead you to think.

I wrote a lot, I wrote extensively about my time struggling with suicide and depression (sorry if you didn’t know, now you know) and many other things that went through my head. Right now that I have a little more time, I think I am going to cross post some things that are half decent.

It was fun finding this. There’s so so much I had forgotten.
