Bates Motel is a new show on A&E, telling the story of a mother and son trying to start a new life in a new town. The father of the family has just died in an unfortunate accident and the mother decides it’s best to try to get a fresh start in a new setting where they can be free from the memories that may haunt their former home. Though her son is resistant at first, he does try to get involved in his mother’s new endeavor of running a motel and getting themselves back on their feet after their loss.
Oh yeah, the name of this boy is Norman Bates. You know, of Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho, and this is the story of how he and his mother became the notorious icons of derangement in that classic horror movie.
It’s Web Crush Wednesdays again! This week’s Web Crush is… *drum roll* Hyperbole and a Half!

This awesomeness comes from the blog Hyperbole and a Half by Allie Brosh. She describes herself as “heroic, caring, alert and flammable.” And though the pictures are what you often see online her writing, especially when paired with the pictures is even more hilarious.
“I’ve always wanted to not give a fuck. While crying helplessly into my pillow for no good reason, I would often fantasize that maybe someday I could be one of those stoic badasses whose emotions are mostly comprised of rock music and not being afraid of things. And finally – finally – after a lifetime of feelings and anxiety and more feelings, I didn’t have any feelings left. I had spent my last feeling being disappointed that I couldn’t rent Jumanji.
I felt invincible.”
I thoroughly suggest you go here and check out my latest Web Crush!
