Nightmare Delivery

Hell is commonly depicted as a lake of fire teeming with the damned, the craggy shores being filled with scenes of souls being tortured. While this mise-en-scene may be appealing as a painting by Hieronymus Bosch, the real Hell would never offer its denizens the solace of suffering en masse. In fact, lifetime journeys across bleak unchanging vistas separate any two penitents. Each of the damned suffers among waking nightmares of his own making knowing that he will never unto eternity glimpse another soul.

A veritable army of daemon-slaves has been raised to administer this cursed realm. Each of these, too, is separated from his nearest cohort by unimaginable distances. So it was that these blight-lorries, the likes of which is pictured below, were built and set into motion by the very breath of Lucifer Morningstar himself. Eternally these cross the plains of Hades in mute, leering caravans. They will visit each demon, bearing torture implements as well as tea and a decent selection of books on tape.

  2. When every set of books on tape is a copy of Moby Dick it doesn’t qualify as a decent selection.

    • Hey, I loved Moby Dick.

      • Never said that it wasn’t a good book, just that one book isn’t a decent selection of books.

      • They also have every back issue of Reader’s Digest. The demons can’t get enough “Humor in Uniform”.

  3. Was this about the Cracker Barrel? They have tea and books on tape, and the last time I ate there it felt like hell. :D

    That truck is fascinating, looks like a late 70’s Ford if I’m not mistaken. Wonder why it ended up there, great shot TR you really managed to capture the mystery behind this one.

    • Cracker Barrel is where we make IP eat on urbex trips because it gives her the howling fantods.
      And thanks, I had to mess with the lighting and exposure for a long time to get something to work.

      • Was this in a basement? It looks pitch black, I can imagine how much of a tedious back and forth it must have been with the exposure/lighting.

    • KInd of; the building’s built into a hill. It was trying to get the glowstick light to balance out with the flashlight, in a reasonable amount of time.
