Planned (with forethought) Developed, Edited, Arranged and Presented by
YES…!!! I planned it, I actually thought about what I was going to put here today and then I actually, really, meticulously (well, more or less) arranged today’s foray… don’t you feel privileged now???
First off, before we go anywhere…
Well, slap me frickin’ upside down and call me a fruit bat…!!! I mean, how much can a fuckin’ Koala bear right???
With all the fussin’ and frothing that’s been going on I’m surprised we haven’t all quit and retired to open beach front bars in the Cayman’s…!!!
OKAY, OKAY… It’s THOR’S DAY, let’s make some fuckin’ noise…!!!
HAH..!!! Yes… that’s just the way to start…
So, what’s an amazing wtf? thing that’s happened this week…? Ahhh… yes…
Didja all see the grand opening of our latest Vampire group on Facebook? It came across our screens and declared that;
“Only rule: Must be at least 18 (age must be publicly displayed) & posts must be vampire, metaphysical, occult, vampire community related or at least loosely related to something along the same lines, other than that, there are NO rules. Say what you want, when you want, to who you want, but respect is expected. Since we do, of course, want some sort of civility here, no derogatory behavior will be tolerated. That is up to and including badgering anyone for an answer if they’ve declined to comment.”
“Say WHAT you want, WHEN you want, to WHO you want but RESPECT is expected”
Swear by ALL the Gods, I laughed so hard I nearly got a hernia…!!! Talk about askin’ for trouble. Well, happy to report that it held up for around a day and then became;
Any and all are welcome. Otherkin, vampyre, witch, curious, metaphysical practitioner etc. provided they follow the rules.
1. To join the group, please answer the required questions. Your membership will not be considered without these responses.
2. Rules MUST be agreed upon after joining, see “pinned post”.
3. 18+ only
4. Post an introduction upon joining.
5. Respect! Productive conversation and respectful/cordial debate only. Zero tolerance for abuse and/or disrespect. Do not challenge or instigate hate with name-calling. Respect NightSide identities. Intolerance will get you booted.
6. Keep photo reposts to a minimum or at least make sure it’s relevant to topics of discussion.
7. No deletion of posts or comments or disabling commenting unless done by or approved by a Moderator/Admin.
8. No blocking of Admins or mods. If they were previously blocked before you joined, I will not require anyone to unblock an admin or mod.
9. Please keep posts vampire, occult, otherkin or metaphysical related or at least a fairly good correlation and explain.
10. No screenshots are to be taken and posted elsewhere or shared with anyone. This is an automatic boot should they be found and/or reported to an admin or mod and said person reporting provides solid proof.
AGAIN, Thank the Gods, we have another sensible, respectful, focus oriented Vampire group. It’ll be interesting to watch what comes out of the initial outrageous sales hook…!!!
Might be safe to take a peek now… ummm, are hippies welcome too???

I have a confession to make… Lady M doesn’t really get overjoyed about taking me shopping, see, I’m a bit of a Jackdaw and I get easily distracted by shiny things… always darting off in different directions and so forth so when this next item popped up… Oh Em Gee…!!!
The sky darkens
The moon floods the landscape
A captivating dramatic necklace
“Hand crafted alchemic red enamel pewter necklace surrounded by bats
Necklace sits upon a a 21″ (53cm) nickel free trace chain with fastener
Weight & Dimensions (approx.): H: 58mm (2.28″) W: 50mm (1.97″) D: 10mm (0.39″) Weight 30g (1.06oz)”
…and speaking of shiny things, here are some of mine, another guilty secret, I am a collector…
TOP: A Pakistan produced “King Cobra Bowie” style bush knife, or machete. Blade folds into handle and the guard swivels to lie along body, wooden handled, brass fittings, stainless steel blade.
LEFT: A Bear MGC Gut-Hook Blade knife from Bear Cutlery in Alabama.
CENTER: A custom made “Damascus” blade hunting knife by Shaka JGW in South Africa
RIGHT: Carl Schleiper Trophy Hunter series Skinning/Hunting Knife. After much research I believe this particular knife is a somewhat older model that may have been produced at Schleiper’s Solingen Works in Germany.
Yes, people smirk at me and say, “Why would you bring a knife to a gunfight?”
I smirk back and say, “Fella holdin’ the gun’s gotta see or hear me coming…!”
OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHKAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY…. MORE NOIZE…!!!
Who said rock and roll was dead???
Oh, yeah, I’ve decided to start a new project… got someone helping me…
The project is THE VAMBAN DICTIONARY. Yes, that’s right, our very own cultural “Urban” dictionary…!!!
We have the first four entries…!!!
(Noun.) An annoying little modern Vampire who just keeps going on, and on, and on about nothing except b.s. and eventually pisses EVERYONE off.
(Verb.) When a poser paints their face white, throws on a cape, chucks in some plastic fangs and waltzes around like they own the culture.
(Noun.) A modern Vampire who has so many medical problems they should be dead and buried.
(Noun.) A female modern Vampire with a permanently resting bitch-face.
Yah, Yah… tasteless, crass, outta line… have you read some of the other crap that’s getting made up out there…???
MORRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRE FUCKING NOIZZZZZZZZE…!!! In YOUR honour dear reader…!!!
Well… how’s that for a noisy THOR’S-Day??? Ahhh, hold on, one more thing,
According to a VERY recent poll the top MOST ANNOYING trait exhibited in the modern Vampire culture is…
****** Drumroll ******
I would go so far as to suggest that to get anyplace in this modern cultural free-for-all one need have a certain measure of both of those to make any difference, no?
Which begs a question…
And with that, dear reader, I’m going to throw all the drapes aside and…
