Hah! Given my mundane and low-paying job right out of college, I'm forced to stay at home with my mom living in her basement, which just so happens to be infested with these hellspawn. There are nights where I can't sleep, can't even set foot down there, for fear of getting leaped at. Your description couldn't have been more spot-on.

Just got a pair of BB guns for Christmas from my cousins, with a post-it note: "Happy hunting." We'll see how it goes.

 
Good luck, watch your back - they're sneaky little monsters.

Aside from the claustrophobic atmosphere of such a space, there is the disturbing abundance of "camel crickets" - otherwise known as Rhaphidophoridae.   I don't know if you are familiar with them, but they're horrible, horrible things.  While essentially harmless, these odious creatures look, to me, like the spawn of a shared nightmare of H.P. Lovecraft and H.R. Giger, and they are completely unafraid of humans.

Wow! This is and always has been my favorite Foo Fighters song. Spooky but settling, and brings a dark pine-y green to mind. Always brings me deep, deep into the woods of my mind.

Nice! Thanks for sharing your Rhaphidophoridae horror story.  We don't get many of those here.

Maybe being talented and making great music is enough to be a "genius" in some people's opinion.  For that, you should definitely put them down on the boards to show your superior discerning nature.

 
Of course people have different opinions - that's the point I was attempting to make.  Unlike your post, there was no "put down" intended; I was working in the assertive tone of the post to which I was responding; i.e.,

"Like it or not, Dave Grohl is a genius. You may not like it but deal with it... "
