ASMR No one asked for

ASMR is a sort of feeling that is triggered by soothing visuals, whispers, audio bites and other gentle stimuli. Paper tearing, soap cutting, and fake pillow talk are extremely common. What I want to do is the opposite of that. I want to make ASMR that is unsettling, uncomfortable, and no where near relaxing. Good ASMR is suppose to send tingles down your spine, I want to make you cringe… hard.

  • Farrington telling you need an elsewhere in you poem
  • Weinstien getting excited about something in class
  • Kneinkamp laughing at her own jokes
  • Farrington’s “2 minute” warning alarm
  • typing a paper at 2 am
  • Marsden drinking his 3rd cup of tea
