    “The Outsider” a short story in “The Lurking Fear” by H.P. Lovecraft. It is a simple story on the surface but it can be thought provoking if you read deeper. It is about a man trying to find out where he is and why. Even though the story is in a collection of macabre horror it is more of a mystery than horror story till the end. The writer’s descriptions are so vivid that the reader does not notice the lack of characters. “I know not where I was born, save that the castle was infinitely old and infinitely horrible”. (Lovecraft 107) The main character is not sure where he is not sure how he got there and doesn’t even have a name. His main motivation turns to getting out where he is and finding sunlight. He is in a dark castle with little or no light. The only way out is a tower that he has to climb its sheer walls to get out. There is also the question, of where is he for the reader. The descriptions of the area are so detailed that the reader can miss clues of where the character is. The action builds slowly but that is needed to build tension to why he has to leave. Lovecraft describes the dank darkness and hideous dampness of the castle. There is an accursed smell everywhere from the generations of piled up corpses. The terrible trees block the sunlight and only one tower of the castle actually goes through the trees. There are books and candles for reading but no other people. “I do not recall hearing any human voice in all those years-not even my own”. (Lovecraft 108)…

    increase with thicker basis weights. (See Exhibit 1 for material costs associated with each product, or grade.) Thus, unit level (or volume-related) drivers made sense for applying certain types of overhead to products. However, other important costs were incurred without respect to volume. For example, grade changes induce instabilities into the manufacturing process that result in scrap until the process resumes stability. On average, production engineers estimate that approximately one-half…

    In 2012, McDonagh released Seven Psychopaths, a black comedy film starring Colin Farrell and Christopher Walken. In Seven Psychopaths, a character’s head explodes, there’s a decapitation, a man’s hands are fastened to a table with knives and then he’s burned alive.

In an interview with the New York Times shortly after the film’s release McDonagh said he does not welcome the Tarantino…
