At the behest of Nick and Keyar, I recently read the entirety of Uzumaki. It's a twenty chapter horror manga that is realized in disturbingly vivid detail. The only significant detail I can provide about the story without giving anything away is that the town is contaminated with spirals. It does a good job of setting the standard for creepiness from the first chapter. The horror factor climaxes around chapter eleven, so if you manage to make it that far you should be alright for the rest of the series. Also watch for chapter six. It turned out more funny than horrific, really. I found the series a pretty good way to get into the Haloween spirit. If you wish you can check it out here (it's read left to right).
What else have I been doing? I saw Zombieland last week. That was another great way to get into the Haloween spirit. I've been playing around with Magic cards and Fallout 3 in my free time. NaNoWriMo starts next Sunday so I'm looking forward to that. I can't really think of anything else to report.
