You're in a mind. A dream, but it's not yours. You delve deep inside and traverse bizarre alien geometry, fighting off the projections of whoever's subconscious you're in. You open safes to look at their deepest hidden memories, and get to the heart of their deep-seated fear and anger to solve their problems, and in the process, fundamentally change the dreamer themselves.
No, Psychonauts isn't Inception: The Game, released far before we were talking about dreams and cool stunts. It's much more inventive, much more imaginative, and much, much more fun.

“When I sat back and thought about what scared children the most. I could not go beyond the thought of a clown smiling.”
With this thought process which occurred to Stephen King, Pennywise – the Clown came into existence and so came It. It is like most of the novels written by King that tends to mold fear and carve it into something that can be taken in by the masses in abundance. A horror presented in a rather elegant yet fitful manner, not letting the readers feel that they have just read a book but make them feel that they have been on a journey. Isn’t that the very purpose of a novel in itself?

I had been thinking of writing about this for ages. I kept putting witty-sounding lines together in my head, thinking of them faster than I discarded them, without ever putting a word on paper.
I kept putting it off.
College, and exams, and more college kept getting in the way, and when I finally began to write about the series that made me fall in love, I realised it had been ages since I had last watched it. So when I sat down to finally write, I began watching Monster for the third time.

With the recent airing of the Sherlock Christmas Special, The Abominable Bride, we’ve come to ten full episodes of Sherlock over six years. And since ten is the best number to use for a countdown list, why not take this moment to rank all the episodes released till date?
Before we get on with the list, though, some clarifications. Firstly, only full fledged episodes will count, so Many Happy Returns, the promotional webisode, will not be on this list. Secondly, this will be quite a subjective list, so if you don't agree with it, go make your own instead.
Without further ado, let's go through the top 10 episodes of Sherlock!
SPOILER ALERT, of course.

Given that Flash - the TV Series is building up its plot for the second season around another
speedster. The mysterious yet ‘supposedly having a cooler costume’ than the Flash himself - Zoom. It is only worthwhile to take a look at the current Flash story arc being run by DC (which came to a conclusion, only gearing up to address the aftermath, in the latest issue) centering around the actual rival of the Flash, the antagonist of Season 1 of the Flash TV series – Professor Zoom aka Eobard Thawne aka Reverse Flash (one among five others) aka a-few-other-aliases.

Don't get me wrong - I used to love berlin-artparasites. Used to, when it made sense.
(Now, if you're thinking, "When did it ever?", well, I knew you would.)
Of late, it has become pretty vague and monotonous, and if you'd followed the fall through, you must've noticed something was off. It is, to quote a friend, " too high school now."
While there's nothing wrong with a page being too "high school" (I mean, we've all been there - FINISH SCHOOL, CHILDREN), it limits art. You can't feel the connect between images and writings anymore. Or maybe, I can't. I used to. Just as bad.
(If you're thinking, "haha 'it limits art' naki, pleb saala", I knew you would.)
In its (much) better days, it used to be curated by Jovanny Ferreyra, who sadly didn't own the page. Due to some ideological differences, he left the reins, and boy did it go astray.
Upside, however, is that he now has his own page, The Artidote (parasites, antidote, geddit?).
While that's all about why berlin-artparasites doesn't make much sense (to me) anymore,
(and why Artidote might fill that void, and Nihilist Memes would stare at it),
that's only half the claim.
Now, for some Joan Cornellà, and a smile you've seen. Somewhere.

Why are we here, and what are we really? This is a question we’ve all asked at some point in our lives, and are quite frankly bored of not being able to answer. Here’s another question: We’re human, but are we humane, and if we are, what separates us from animals, besides the lack of claws, and our supposedly superior intellect?
