THE WEEKLY BIATCH

 

Novelist Tom Clancy said it…
“The control of information is something the elite always does, particularly in a despotic form of government. Information, knowledge, is power. If you can control information, you can control people.”

So, here we have this amazing, awe-inspiring, sprawling, global, almost instantaneous information system. On the many, many, many ends of it’s tendrils we have, within our culture, a large number of folks of whom others say… “Oh, you really need to get in contact with such-and-such, they know EVERYTHING about that…!!!”

Ohhhh… is that right… so… ummmm…where is this information? Locked in a cupboard in the cellar? Sealed in a airtight bag in the freezer guarded by automatic cannons and a pack of Rottweilers? Do they keep it all hardcopied and stored jealously away in some hidden self-store unit?
OR

Is it only shared with a certain “class” of associates? Is it kept within a small circle so that, “you can control people”, is this like the “1%” that everyone tells me owns and runs the United States?

Ever wondered where this information goes? Is used? Is circulated? Because I’ll tell ya one thing… seems like the great unwashed masses are seen as a…

YEP, HE FUCKIN’ WELL SAID THAT AND DON’T BE GETTIN’ ALL PISSY AND WHINY ABOUT HOW SO-AND-SO DID ALL THE WORK BLAH, BLAH, FUCKIN’ BLAH…!!!

YA WANNA SEE SOME ELITIST NARCISSISM??? SUCK ON THIS…

Well-ah, Well-ah, Well-ah… might as well finish off in the right frame…

Here’s one for some very fine people I have known in my life, amazing people who have a culture and spirit that dates back some 40,000 years or more, some people I have worked with, broken bread with, drank and danced with (Yep, I’ve been to a stompin’ ground) and I’ll tell ya what – some of the finest bruddahs ‘n’ sheilas I’ve ever known…

Go Warumpi…!!!

T.G.I. Frīge’s day

Thrown together for ya in a complete state of disarray but who really gives, right? Edited, roughly, Written, naturally and Perpetrated by
T.

Yep, yep, don’t worry, here it is…

img. source: Web Design Library

First things bloody first…

img. source: Food Republic

Yes, yes, oh yea… it’s Frīge’s day…
“In Germanic mythology, Frigg (/frɪɡ/;[1] Old Norse), Frija (Old High German), Frea (Langobardic), and Frige (Old English) is a goddess. In nearly all sources, she is described as the wife of the god Odin. In Old High German and Old Norse sources, she is also connected with the goddess Fulla. The English weekday name Friday (etymologically Old English “Frīge’s day”) bears her name.

Frigg is described as a goddess associated with foreknowledge and wisdom in Norse mythology, the northernmost branch of Germanic mythology and most extensively attested. Frigg is the wife of the major god Odin and dwells in the wetland halls of Fensalir, is famous for her foreknowledge, is associated with the goddesses Fulla, Lofn, Hlín, and Gná, and is ambiguously associated with the Earth, otherwise personified as an apparently separate entity Jörð (Old Norse “Earth”).” [2]

 

…and you thought it was because you’re supposed to eat fried Chicken and Fries today…!!!

So… anyway…
Ma Parker and her son Carr are putting together a gang and they have four prospective accomplices together in a warehouse. Ma looks at the first one and says, “Whadda they call you kid?”

He answers, “Sammy Nineteen” as he lays a gleaming Smith and Wesson Model 19 on a table.
She nods approvingly and looks at the next one, “Whadda they call you kid?”

He answers, “Carlo Remington ma’am” and he lays a gleaming Remington Model 870 pump action shotgun on the table.
She nods her approval and looks at the third, “Whadda they call you son?”

He answers, “Thompson Ms. Parker” as he lays out a hand engraved walnut stock Thompson submachine gun on the table.
Again she nods her approval and then turns her attention to the fourth punk, a skinny, sharp dressed African American, “Whadda they call you kid?”
“Arlo Forteen” he replies but doesn’t make a move.

“Well, Arlo Forteen, whadda ya packin’?”

Arlo smirks and pulls his weapon out and slaps it down on the table. Ma Parker fainted…

THE WEEKLY BIATCH…!!!

Okay, here’s a scenario for ya…

A person is in an online group, said person is acting up a bit, making an ass of themselves and is gently told so, told that it might be in their best interests to calm down a bit.

Said person splits and makes own group, goes “member shopping” on everybody else’s “friends list” and drops them all in the new group, ZAP, Zero to 136 in a couple of hours…!!!

Next thing they are bleeding the original group they were in of material to fill up their own sad little effort…!!!

What’s a good name for a person like that? What about sycophantic little nut-sucking douche???

What’s that? “Don’t worry, it happens all the time.” Yeah, taxes and death happens all the time too and they ain’t pleasant things either…!!!

Obviously said Douche didn’t bother reading, “So, you want your own empire.”

Hey, amigo, break out the frickin’ Tequila…!!!

REMEMBER: RVL advocates responsible consumption of alcohol, DON”T DRINK AND DRIVE, RVL Warns that The United States Surgeon General has deemed smoking to be a health hazard.

Tim

Sunnandæg, dies solis, Sunday,

WELL… spank my l’il brown monkey!!! Yep, it’s here again… is it just me or have the days gotten all screwed up? Workdays seem to have become 30 hour days and weekend days seem to have become 18 hour days…??? WTF?

Maybe the rest of the solar system is running in the right direction and we’ve gone flamin’ retrograde…!!!

Hmmm… better get the obligatory out of the way…

img. source: Web Design Library

Yep, we’ve got naughty words, we’ve got drug references, we’ve got some blood, sexual innuendo and maybe a little attitude along the way… so, get the kids some popcorn and a Disney movie and shut ’em in the other room…!!!

DID YOU KNOW…

“The seven-day week originates from the calendar of the Babylonians, which in turn is based on a Sumerian calendar dated to 21st-century B.C. Seven days corresponds to the time it takes for a moon to transition between each phase: full, waning half, new and waxing half. Because the moon cycle is 29.53 days long, the Babylonians would insert one or two days into the final week of each month.”

“Sunday comes from Old English “Sunnandæg,” which is derived from a Germanic interpretation of the Latin dies solis, “sun’s day.” Germanic and Norse mythology personify the sun as a goddess named Sunna or Sól.”

Ref: Live Science.com

 

The end to the weekend for a great many brothers and sisters in the workforce, two whole days of freedom, the time to let it all hang out and wash off the cares of the working week… if you’re lucky –  unfortunately, in this quaint little industrial system you have here it’s not the same for everyone… as for those brothers and sisters who had to pull weekend shifts, who had to cope with “mandatory Saturday’s”, in a system that should have been outlawed in the early 1900’s, this one’s for you…

 

So it’s SUNDAY…
Let’s raise a fuckin’ glass to Sól… and make some more fuckin’ noise…

 

 

Now then, what’s been happening, Ooooooh, Yeah, BIG NEWS… which you may have already read about… It’s official…

picture frame by gothyka.com

Yeah, yeah… go ahead but ALL the *eyerolls* in the world ain’t gonna faze us none…

From this point we are considering the future expansion of RVL and we are looking into a bigger, and better, pro domain. We are seeking to engage other knowledgeable people to reinforce our staff and give us the ability to look at a much wider range of subjects, questions, dilemmas and issues within the Modern Real Vampire Culture – all while maintaining that inimitable RVL style

WATCH THIS SPACE FOR FURTHER DEVELOPMENTS…!!!


So, now then, moving right along, what has my lovely Lady M found for us this week?

“Every thought is new when an author expresses it in a manner peculiar to himself.”

Been doing a bit of reading meself, first off, an interesting little piece by author Brian Harrison on Exemplore… it’s inspired me to take a deeper look into the actual chronological history of what I shall call Lamia Americae

The Vampire Legends of New Orleans
by Brian Harrison on Exemplore

 

…annnnd, speaking of reading, there’s an awesome site called “The Vampire Library”, we were fortunate enough to be able to feature it back in the day… it’s probably the most comprehensive listing (currently at 1625 titles) of Vampire books and entertainment resources you’re gonna find, do yourself a favour, check it out…

“Be careful of the words you say,

Keep them short and sweet.

You never know, from day to day,

Which ones you’ll have to eat.”

Anonymous

Yeah, that’s right… something’s been bothering me lately… you know, there are times when a lotta folks hit on hard times, maybe it’s a transient thing, maybe it’s gonna be a long haul back – one time or another everyone gets there to varying degrees but when a situation gets so desperate that people can’t, quite literally, afford enough for proper food then we need to remember that we are lucky enough to have enough. When it gets to a stage where folks NEED to reach out, or someone intervenes and reaches out for them, we need to show a little compassion, a little understanding for fellow man. What we DON’T need is for assholes to sit back and criticise them for getting into that position, what we DON’T need is for assholes to sit back in their comfy all-the-mod-cons houses, with their fancy cars and hi-tech living and lay down some line of pure bullshit about the situation that they know fuck all about. If you’re not in THE position SHUT THE FUCK UP and let us who can help, a little or a lot, get on with the business. Just go back to your $2000 Lazy Boy recliner in front of your 200 inch flat-screen whatever the fuck it is and be an asshole – just keep it to yourself…! Nuff said…

For those of you facing down the hard times…

 

I reckon we’re going to have to make up a special name for people like those assholes for the Vampban dictionary… oooh, yeah like…and speaking of that, four newly invented words for the Vampire Culture Urban Dictionary program today…

Vundablunda (N) A Vampire who is so wrapped up in their own “press” that they can’t wake up and smell the coffee. A true narcissist who is only interested in what they can screw out of the culture for their own benefit.

Droglet (N) A junior vamp newbie who comes blasting into sight and thinks they own every fucking thing and that everybody should follow their commands.

Drogging (V) The act of getting rid of Droglets

Bluking (V) {esp. Sanguinarian) Gorging on blood until you puke.

 

Cool track huh? Reminds me, wanna check out some more cool stuff, some indie stuff, some music stuff? Go check on the latest at Dave Wolff’s AEA Fanzine…

You can keep an eye on the previews right here at RVL by going to our AEA Fanzine Page

Okay, that’s a wrap kids… have a nice night, don’t think about tomorrow until the alarm goes off tomorrow morning…! And Hey, HEY… be safe out there…!!!
