i can't believe my mom bought the wonderfalls disc set after watching 7 minutes on youtube!

once upon a time, there was a teenage girl who loved the x-files. there was one episode that was particularly memorable. mulder and scully traveled to gibsonton, florida, to investigate some weird murders. now, gibsonton is a real town in florida that was once home to circus people, carnies, and side-show 'freaks'. i say once because these unique people that make their lives and living (2 different things) off of their differences are a dying breed. sure, people are born with deformities every day, but their parents aren't as likely to exploit them by selling them to ringling brothers like they would have during the 1800's or the depression. that being said, my high school girlfriend and i always wanted to take a trip to 'gibtown', but we never did. this may be partly due to the fact that we had no internet maps and our aaa map did not locate gibsonton. like, such as, the iraq...

back to x-files...

in this episode, a side character was this jigsaw puzzle tattooed man that pulled a gollum and ate a raw fish by the lake that he'd caught with his bare hands. i'd all but forgot about one of my first (of many) somewhat disturbing memories caused by x-files, until i checked the fx guest list again....


the enigma will be at fx this year, and i'm weirdly excited to see him in person.
