Re: “WT[Fox]: Another Memphis News Station Reports Halloween Drug Hoax

Seriously? Why would anyone give away hundreds of dollars in drugs?

Re: “Horrortober: The Invisible Man (1933)

Una always does squawk her head off. She was the best at it. I need to rewatch this one.

Re: “Horrortober: Dracula (1931)

Lugosi was a master of stillness. He was a theater actor in Hungary. Here's fun irony considering the discussion of Dracula as Anti-Christ, the earliest known pictures of him are from 1909, as Jesus, from a Passion play. (when I do vampire day on my Halloween Livejournal, I always lead with that)

Vampire mythology is very heavily invested in inverted Christian symbolism. The words Dracula says as he feeds Mina his blood are Biblical, and often used in the marriage ceremony "Flesh of my flesh, bone of my bone, blood of my blood."

Re: “Horrortober: Night Of The Living Dead (1968)

I watched it a while back and live-tweeted it. I have a high gross-out tolerance on movies like this. And it still got to me. Although it read very much as a contemporary political analogy. Heroic Black Dude does his best to keep a group alive against overwhelming odds and ever-growing resistance from Hidebound White Guy.

Re: “Council to Review Ban on Sale of 'Body Parts of Aborted Babies'

*facepalm* So we're passing a bill about something THAT ISN'T EVEN HAPPENING! (the monetary amounts were about storage and transport, all tissue is donated)

Shall we have a bill against riding unicorns down the boulevard greenway of Elvis Presley next?

Re: “Mark Norris, Al Harvey Invited to Runnymede for 800th Anniversary of Magna Carta Signing

Think it will get it through the Republican head that rights were wrested from the crown, not given by God? Probably not. They need some Kipling.

And there they launched in solid line
The first attack on Right Divine,
The curt uncompromising "Sign!'
They settled John at Runnymede.

At Runnymede, at Runnymede,
Your rights were won at Runnymede!
No freeman shall be fined or bound,
Or dispossessed of freehold ground,
Except by lawful judgment found
And passed upon him by his peers.
Forget not, after all these years,
The Charter signed at Runnymede.'

Re: “More From the Mid-South Con

The Bunny is my youngest daughter. She made the costume entirely by herself.
