Examples of Crap I Waste My Money On: Bootsale Report

And now another entry into show & tell ‘Crap I Waste My Money On’ because they’re fun to write, even if they’re boring to read

I was going to turn this into some new theme, ‘Bootsale Action Figures’ or something but bootsale season is winding down and I’m particularly paranoid about how many action figures I've been buying of late, and next year will see a drop in figure buying anyway, so instead we’re doing this.

The Long and Winding Five Nights at Freddy's

It’s me

Last Friday I found out that there had been not one, but THREE sequels to 2014’s Five Nights at Freddy’s and through these sequels a tantalizing and terrible lore had developed for the franchise (and a movie’s in the works!), I have spent a lot of time on YouTube, Steam and the Five Nights a Freddy’s Wiki.

11 Abandoned Theme Parks

I wish I had the money, athleticism, photography skills and testicles to get into Urban Exploration (or Urbex, or Haikyo). Derelict things fascinate me, there's a sadness and creepiness to abandoned and decaying locations, the combined feeling of which really feels good (to me at least). The vaguely tangible what was and what's just remembered in these old, ragged places. I'm also a theme park nut, hell I'm a theme-anything nut, I just greatly appreciate the amount of work that goes into immersing someone completely in something - and big whooshing rides to scream obscenities on in a mix of thrill and pant-shitting - and dinosaurs. As such I am completely in love with abandoned theme parks (of which there are many), sadly a lot of them are abroad or at least not within public transport of where I live, and lacking that money, athleticism and testicles all I can do is experience them vicariously through the internet; you can find loads of results for Googling things like 'abandoned theme park' but a lot of them are bullshit clickbait that tell you fuck all and just reuse the same photo, so whenever I find one that interests me I do a little research and make a not of it in a Word document, I thought I'd share some of this with you in an attempt to make a useful Abandoned Theme Park result for Google.
