Jeremy Blaustein (who worked on Silent Hill 2,3,4) defines horror as follows [ENG, Thread] 

To summarise, a killer with a knife, machete or chainsaw that is about to break down your door is fright.

Finding that the killer is already in your home is horror.

Discovering that the killer is actually you? That is psychological horror.

So many great filmmakers, writers and game creators understood this. Stephen King with his “shitweasels” in “Dream Catcher; David Cronenburg and his twisted transformed bodies; Silent Hill 4: The Room using the concept of invading personal space. The list is endless.

Jeremy Blaustein (who worked on Silent Hill 2,3,4) defines horror as follows [ENG, Thread] 

The boogeyman in the night is “fear”, the boogeyman under your bed or in your closet is “horror”. Seeing a person with a twisted stump of a hand pumping blood is “fear”, seeing your own is “horror”. Seeing a maggot crawling on a lump of meat is “fear”, seeing one crawl out of your infected wound is “horror”.

What then is “horror”? Well, to me, “horror” is when it crosses into our personal space. When that place which is our own personal space, our pure sanctuary, is invaded by the impure and the external –that is when horror happens.

Jeremy Blaustein (who worked on Silent Hill 2,3,4) defines horror as follows [ENG, Thread] 

Simply put, we want to feel safe in our personal space and we want our personal space to be clean and pure. In contrast, that which is external to us, removed from us can be more easily considered impure, dirty, threatening. THAT is the source of fear. An external source that threatens us –whether it be a shark swimming in the ocean or a terrorist living in a cave or a killer banging on our door.

So you can easily see that the concept of privacy is related to the concept of personal space, but there are other psychologically related concepts as well.

Mary Douglas, in her world famous book “Purity and Danger” talks about human societies’ concepts of internal and external (“us vs them”/”in vs out”) and how it relates to our ideas of purity and impurity, safety and danger.

For humans, the concept of personal space is very important. We have our bodies of course –that’s our most personal space (and within that body, some “spaces” are more personal than others even!). Beyond our bodies, extending out around us is more personal space. Our rooms, our bathrooms (where we do our private stuff), our workplace, etc.

There are so many things one could write about horror, but I think I’d like to talk a little bit about my idea of the difference between “fright” and “horror”. So what is this difference? I think it has to do with proximity. Let me reach deep into my college anthropology class and try to explain what I’m talking about.

Das war ein schöner Tag heute! Auch wenn es heute Mittag/Nachmittag sehr grau und nass war, zeigte sich am frühen Abend doch nochmal die Sonne und wir konnten den Tag auf dem Balkon ausklingen lassen.
Nun sitze ich wieder im Zug nach Hause.
Es ist toll einen wunderbaren Menschen mach langer Zeit wieder zu sehen! ❤️

Sketches, Doodles, Drawings 

Just wanted to share my latest sketches and doodles. I will keep working on my Beanie-Boy but I just couldn't draw his eye today.. :D

The smell and sound of rain in summer is pure relaxation and perfect for meditation.
Look how vibrant the colors of the plants are!

2 years ago I stopped wearing bras.
It was one of the best decisions I made.

But I still feel uncomfortable when other people stare at my braless breast like they've never seen this before.
I think it's disrespectful.

Ein Gang in die Stadt, um Pfandflaschen wegzubringen, ist nun nicht das, was ich mir heute vorgestellt habe, aber immerhin bin ich draußen und in Bewegung!
Vielleicht halte ich mich danach einfach in den umliegenden Parks auf.

Der Tag ist noch lange nicht vorbei, wer weiß was auf mich zukommt?!

Nach einem leckeren Frühstück geht's unter die Dusche und dann ab auf Balkonien!

Ich hoffe, dass sich bestimmte Menschen noch zurück melden. Hätte schon Lust mit jemanden etwas zu unternehmen (ans Wasser fahren, wandern, ...).

Schönes Wochenende euch allen! 🌞

People expect you to grow,
But they never want you to change.

Musik, Interpret [GER] 

"Nie" 💙 sollte das erste und letzte Album von Fynn Kliemann sein. Doch nun liegt das neue, limitierte Album vor mir: POP ❤️

Ich freue mich darauf es zu hören und meinen Gefühlen freien Lauf zu lassen.

Personal Life [ENG] 

My surgery was 11 Weeks ago.
My bone, mucosae, cartilage and scar healed quickly. But my nose itself isn't flexible enough yet and the skin and muscles are still swollen. It might take 3 (maybe 6) more months for the final result.

Breathing through my nose, especially if I'm taking deep breaths, is so much better after the surgery and I don't snore anymore in my sleep. :D
