I have been reading a lot of rough posts in the last couple days. It seems Dame Fortune is on a bitchy kick lately, and has kinda kicked more than just a few of you.

Well, that sucks. A lot.

So, for what it is worth this is just my fondest wishes and positive vibes sent outwards from the War Room to all of you out there. Take care of y'selves, and get hold of me if you need someone to talk to. I'm good at that.


It's no secret that I have a fascination for goth girls. 01flux recently pointed out that it was even more obvious what my tastes were when she found out that my 2 favorite bands were Concrete Blonde and Curve (both fronted by 'dark' looking women...yummy...). But my foundations on this go much further back...

...back to a childhood when Saturday was a good day for TV (ah, the halcyon days of my youth). Awake at 6am for Kung-Fu Theatre. Cartoons from 8 until noon (funny cartoons, not just half-hour toy commercials...long live Bugs Bunny!!!). And then...then...the Creature Feature. The old horror films...I must have seen them all a thousand times, and never tired of them.

It was here that I first saw Barbara Steele and Elvira. And, through associations and research, discovered The Cool Ghoul, Zacherley, and the original Queen of the Ghouls, Vampira.

So, in honor of the woman who started a life-long adoration of the dark, pale, and sinister-looking seductress, I present the nice little collection I discovered today: Vampira, at Zomboid.Org

Here's to Zombies, the living dead;
May you find one, beneath your bed;
They live on blood and you should too;
Hemoglobin is the drink for you!

I'm fairly certain that this explains my kick with Lisa Marie, as well. But, man, c'mon, Tim Burton? I know she could do better than that...no accounting for taste, I suppose.

    Hoobastank - Crawling In The Dark

Posted For Someone

Hoobastank - "Crawling in The Dark"

I will dedicate and sacrifice my everything
For just a second's worth of how my story's ending
And I wish I could know if the directions that I take
And all the choices that I make won't end up all for nothing

Show me what it's for
Make me understand it
I've been crawling in the dark looking for the answer
Is there something more
Than what i've been handed?
I've been crawling in the dark looking for the answer

Help me carry on, assure me it's ok
To use my heart and not my eyes to navigate the darkness
Will the ending be ever coming suddenly?
Will I ever get to see the ending to my story?

(Repeat Chorus)

So when and how will I know?
How much further do I have to go?
How much longer until I finally know?
Because I'm looking and I just can't see what's in front of me
In front of me

(Repeat Chorus)

Strange But True

In Merryville, Missouri, women are prohibited from wearing corsets because "the privilege of admiring the curvaceous, unencumbered body of a young woman should not be denied to the normal, redblooded American male."

    Silent Hill 2 - Overdose Delusion


Just had a mild wave of apathetic depression wash over me. No clue as to why. Ah well, it'll pass. Somehow, I have the feeling that I will be able to think of something pleasant...
