Samara Morgan in Isla Vista

Something I’ve been meaning to do for a while: First, dig up that photo of my old college roommate passed out in the corner of the kitchen and bearing a striking resemblance to the corpse of Amber Tamblyn in The Ring. Next, put it right next to the original so as to accentuate how well she accidentally nailed it.

We had all seen The Ring and found scarier than the PG-13 rating led us to expect. I know I spent the night after I saw it trying hard not to think about the corpse of Amber Tamblyn, only to naturally think of nothing but. Later, after a party, someone woke up and went to the kitchen to get water. She opened the refrigerator door and the light from inside illuminated the room enough that she saw what initially looked like poor, dead Amber Tamblyn. Further investigation revealed Dead Amber to actually be another roommate, whose night’s activities had led her to believe that the kitchen floor would be suitable place for a nap. Of course, the event was photographed for posterity.

Here’s the corpse of Amber Tamblyn:


And here’s our roommate’s accidental rendition of it:


Brilliant, really. Oh college, how I miss you.
