In The Circuit - Bruce
Some time last year, I read about a Twilight Zone episode from the 60's (I think!). It was about a person that comes to a town, and that town becomes more and more surrounded by a dark cloud. This cloud is the town's negative and destructive feelings, and the inhabitants are not able to leave due to this cloud surrounding the town and keeping them in. That's what I remember of the synopsis, anyway; I haven't been able to find it later. After reading this, I couldn't help but instantly think of Darkness (the song) - there are just too many similarities for it to be a coincidence. Does sound familiar to anyone?

Just started reading this again (the last time may have been when it was released), and even just a few pages in, I'm drawn in. Drawn into the story, but also King's...universe, if you will. I haven't kept up with King, started to lose a little interest in the mid-Nineties, "Rose Madder" is responsible for that. I started reading King even before I discovered Bruce, my first was Pet Semetary and I was 11. Then Cujo (first the zombie cat, then the rabid St. Bernard...would this be considered good parenting today? 😂) Anyway, one line really stood out in the aboslutely awesome start of the book, when the car crashes into Hapscomb's Texaco in Arnette, Tx.; an ambulance comes to transport the driver to hospital: " ...red domelight pulsing blood-shadows across the gas station's tarmac". That's either an absolutely fantastic description, or a bad, cheap one. I love it, to me, it's a great description - though I've never seen a blood-shadow, I still know exactly what it looks like, thanks to Stephen, here. And it reminds me of why I used to love Steve so much, I just might fall in love with him all over again.

Wembley 2002. Arguably the 2nd best of the Euro barnstorming shows (Stockholm being the best).
