Coulrophobes – you may want to stay the Hell away from Michigan!

Published October 7, 2016 by Shadow Girl

The nationwide #CreepyClown epidemic has come to Metro Detroit, and in several instances has gone beyond creepy to criminal.

The #CreepyClowns are invading Shadow Girl's territory!

The #CreepyClowns are invading Shadow Girl’s territory!

Multiple sources have confirmed the #CreepyClown incident at Carlson HS on Tuesday.

Details here so far are sketchy because I have not been able to verify information about the gunman, but I spoke to multiple people today who were right there at #CreepyClown Ground Zero.  Even if you haven’t been following the nationwide clown-demic – this shit is terrifying!

A student, dressed as a clown held the teachers and students hostage with a loaded gun as he piped creepy circus music throughout the school. The police had the school on lock-down until the student gunman was eventually arrested. (Watch for upcoming interview with CHS student.)

But, that’s not all… apparently the circus came to Brownstown on Tuesday, because the high school clown brought a posse >.< (oh come on, it’s funny! – you know that this is where ICP is from, right?) and the clowny shenanigans continued throughout the night.

Police in Downriver are searching for a suspect who robbed the Walgreens on West and Telegraph roads in Brownstown Township on Tuesday night.
According to police, the suspect entered the store with his gun drawn and demanded cash.
“He had on a black hoodie pulled over his head, a white clown mask underneath and dark colored pants,” Deputy Chief Robert Matthews told WWJ’s Charlie Langton.
The suspect escaped with $300 to $400 cash, fleeing the scene in a blue Chevy Impala.

Two women and one young child were also assaulted Tuesday night by men dressed as clowns.
In the first incident a boy was attacked by a man wearing a clown outfit and wielding a knife in a trailer park in Sterling Heights. The boy suffered minor cuts.
The second incident a couple hours later, involved two women who “were approached by three men dressed as clowns at Lowell and Boulder streets in Sterling Heights.
“Three men in clown masks with baseball bats jumped out and started swinging them at the women,” according to the report.

Earlier MI incidents include –

Clinton Township – A motorist posted a video on Twitter at 2:45 a.m. Sunday of a #CreepyClown incident. The tweet says: “We just saw this clown on Cass and Moravian. He tried to follow our car. This is getting insane.” The tweeted video of the clown sighted at the car wash can be found here.

Reports have also been confirmed in Big RapidsPort Huron, and  in Lapeere.

SEX, MARRY, KILL by Todd Travis

Published March 30, 2015 by Shadow Girl

I’ve played a different version of SEX, MARRY, KILL.
In the game I know, you’re given the names of three people – usually a group of celebrities – and you choose who you’d 1. Have sex with, 2. Marry, and 3. Kill. Use the Brady kids as an example. If you’re picking women, choose between Marsha, Jan, and Cindy. (My choices would be: Sex – Marsha, Marry – Jan, Kill – Cindy). If you’re picking men, choose between Greg, Peter, and Bobby. (My choices would be: Sex – Peter, Marry – Bobby, Kill – Greg). My answers for the Brady Boys may be slightly influenced by Adrianne Curry’s obsession with Peter Brady, (don’t judge me!), and by Greg’s poor judgement with his brief Rock Star career. Adios, Johnny Bravo, indeed.

SEX, MARRY, KILL is played a little differently in this story. The player is only given one person instead of three, and they must choose whether they’d have sex with, marry, or kill the selected person.

It’s all fun and games until… well – you’ll see…

“Absolute power corrupts absolutely”

It was the class trip that brought them together. The class trip, and… fate.
The tables in the restaurant resemble the high-school cafeteria; the students have divided into multiple sub-groups and cliques. Jocks, stoners, mean girls, etc. ‘Birds of a feather’. Except for the last table.
The five kids seated around the last table have nothing in common except for their social standing. They’re labeled as losers, each of them tormented and harassed by their so-called peers. Loners.
A ‘geek‘. A ‘fat chick‘. A ‘slow learner‘. A ‘psycho suicide girl‘. A ‘wannabe criminal‘.
Together, these outcasts will become The Furious Five, and it’s their turn to be on top. Anything they desire will be theirs, and what they desire most is revenge.

FF:
* The author, Todd Travis, dedicated this book to one of his teachers. Right now, you’re probably thinking… “Aww! His high-school english teacher must be so proud…”
Well – no.
It’s dedicated to his middle school gym teacher, and for a very good reason.
The next time you have your glass raised in a toast, remember Todd Travis, and give him a nod & a wink.
You’re awesome, Todd. Here’s to you!

CANNIBAL FAT CAMP by Mark C. Scioneaux & David C. Hayes

Published August 3, 2014 by Shadow Girl

Boy, that escalated quickly.

Mark C. Scioneaux & David C. Hayes

The school year is about to end, and Miles Landish is ready to start his summer vacation. Especially since he just got busted, again, for stealing his classmates lunches. Not just a Twinkie here, or a sandwich there – oh no. Miles had just binged his way down the hall, breaking into lockers along the way. If the embarrassment from being caught red handed wasn’t enough, he also split his pants bending over – flashing The Goat to every teacher & student in the hallway!
The principal has had enough of Miles, and wants him to spend his senior year at another school. Well, if you’ve got snooty parents, and more money than God, you can pretty much write your own ticket – and his parents take full advantage of how much the school needs their financial support.
They put their heads together and come up with a mutually beneficial decision – send Miles to Camp Tum Tum, ‘A weight control camp for spoiled teens’, aka a Fat Camp for over privileged brats. Miles is nervous, but he knows that he needs this – he can’t lose weight on his own. He’s tried.
Camp Tum Tum is completely isolated, no phones, no computers, nothing to distract the campers. That’s a good idea, in theory. But when TSHTF, and there is no way to call for help – things spiral out of control faster than their will-power at an all you can eat buffet.

CFC is a great story, bonus for having a kick-ass title and the best cover art ever! I used to have full collections of Garbage Pail Kids, and the cover pic makes me want to jump on eBay and pay a fortune to start collecting again!

The Killing Club by Ty Schwamberger

Published June 4, 2013 by Shadow Girl

Kristen always wanted to be part of the “in crowd.” Her social worries intensified after transferring from a small, public school to private, upscale Smithshire Academy in the middle of her high school career. She wanted so badly to be part of the social network in her new school, she didn’t think twice when one of the existing members of the popular girl’s group, The K-Club, invited her over one night for a sleepover. Where all the girls whose names started with the letter “K” are going to be. Kristen’s self-doubt allows her to be pulled into the group on one condition…

She must first go through the initiation process that the other girls have set forth before her.

What ensues is a group of popular high school girls practicing in the occult, Kristen going over to a stranger’s house to “scare” them and sacrifices to secure Kristen’s spot in high school legend.

Will all Kristen’s work be enough to appease the girls of The Killing Club and the great God of high school popularity to let her into the group?

The extent of blood that Kristen wishes to get on her hands will hold the answer.
