A Brick Facade Appears to Melt Off of an Apartment Building
From the Knees of My Nose to the Belly of My Toes is a surreal display by British designer Alex Chinneck that makes it look like the brick facade is sliding right off the front of a building in Margate, England. The eye-catching installation, which took Chinneck approximately one year to bring to fruition, takes a four-story residence that had been abandoned for eleven years and replaces the old frontage with a new one that slumps down and curves outward, leaving the front door lying perpendicular to the top row of windows.
“ My apartment complex doesn’t have recycling. So every week I have to sneak my bag of recycling into my neighbor’s blue bin. The amount of stress I experience over the possibility of getting caught is astounding. But when I get away with it (and I always do), I feel like James Bond. So to answer your question, yeah I consider myself a very adventurous person. ”— Ron Babcock
This story was about a stalker/serial killer, but im not sure how exactly it happened. Our fsmily and friends were at a mosque and theres one of my sister's friends whom i observed and thought acted weird, n soon she started blaming my sister for dping something wrong that she didnt do. Days later when everyone found out about the truth they started shunning this "friend" of hers and putting her to shame. We were at the same mosque & she went out the door, slamming. Later some of my sisters' friends from that mosque had a sleepover in our big house with my family n weirdly we all sleep in one huge bed, cramming everything. Soon it was time to do the dawn prayer and someone called my grandpa's phone. He answered it and it was from that psycho girl. Same goes with my uncle's and sister's phones. After we prayed we felt hints that she was in our house, trying to either kill us or use us for something else by trying to "befriend" us first in her weird ways. Prayer after prayer, she did try making friends with me by striking obnoxious conversations but i shrugged her off.
This went on repetitively for a few nights.
The final night, we started to sleep in the dark and not make a sound since we figured she might come back for us. My grandpa's and uncle's phones rang again & we panicked shortly but i say not to answer them. I also suggested them to change numbers and service providers so she couldnt track down our house anymore. It almost failed cuz once again she made it inside our big room.
We heard news from my sisters' other friends who didnt stay over in our house. I read one girl's blog and she said she was getting married to her best friend whose name is Nadya (apparently theyre a lesbian couple) and she received a locket which strangely was blank at first but then grew scratches all by itself. The locket is made of steel and it's an off-red heart, and the scratches were black. Quickly this girl dipped the locket in mercury (or some other preservative substance) and stopped the scratches before growing a few more & making 13 scratches. There were only 7 scratches at the moment and she said that lucky it didnt made 13 yet, otherwise the psycho girl (whose name was Aisha) came to her or Nadya's house and might do some serious stalking and damage.
Long story short, this 'Aisha' someone never bothered us anymore. We did encounter some other stalkers too and this time they were guys (but i forgot their names) but in the end we solved these cases.
The next few days (or probably years since my sisters now live in an apartment) my mom and I wanted to visit them & we were supposed to go outside to eat that night. She asked me to go upstairs yo fetch them since she doesnt feel like going up the lift. Turns out there was a Tukul stand up comedy late night show on the lobby and she prefered to sit down n watch it for a while.
As i went up the lift heading for the 13th floor there was a creepy guy entering from the 6th floor. He tried striking a conversation with me using creepy-ass cliches like "whats your name" and "you should give me a smile" bit i jist ignored him like he wasnt there and maybe flipped the bird after he got off at tje 11th floor. Later i arrived at my sister's block n was greeted by her housemate. The place was quite small between the elevator n the doors, but one apartment unit was quite huge. I grabbed both my sisters saying that mom was already downstairs.
The dream ended there.
Seems like i was back as a freshie in a new college, this time i started with Tina n Reisha. I was roommates with them in the beginning n we rented a room together in a rather grand hotel-ish but small n cheap apartment. During the first few weeks i seem to be forgettinh everything, and tbe front office seem to be lacking in their service skills, cuz they didn't give me my keys and bus card on time.
Months later, Tina and Reisha moved out of my room (or rather i was the one who moved out of the room and got new roommates) but we still hang out in college. The rooms look like 3-star hotel rooms, complete with carpeting and sturdy cabinets and drawers. Now, after i moved in the new room i realized there were 4 other people; Kurisquare, another random guy which was her friend, Denorii and her boyfriend. Ugh, just my luck.
Weirdly we got along quite well after a few weeks, but there was too much romance coming out from Denorii and her bf (they took different courses; she took medical and he took music, violin espdcially) and i have no idea what Kuri and the oyher guy took but in the end they ended up falling for each other and started dating, leaving me the fifth wheel. I wished i was back living with Tina and Reisha.
Had a dream about a mix of Persona and Marvel Superheroes. The story goes like they're staying over at a hotel, and the guy with glasses and long-ish red&black mullet was reluctant at first in gettinh these guys their own rooms, but he sorted them anyway, into weird classes like "red spider" "blue dragon" "green snake" etc
Suddelny in the middle, i forgot all their names (but i only remember spider-man)
And suddenly the one who are staying at the apartment became me and my family. The superheroes n persona characters are nowhere to be seen,
And then i woke up.
