There, now we’re all ready… *smirk*

Been thinking about things Halloweenish lately… (No fucking kidding… DUH…!!!)
This is the first thing I thought about…

BITE

You talk, you dance, you laugh and drink,
While in the shadows, dark things slink.
In those closets where monsters were,
The corners of your minds now aver.

The glitter and sound that swirls around,
With dark senses, makes hearts pound.
The taste and sense of bodies drawn close,
That heady drug, a massive attack dose.

While shimm’ring beyond pools of light,
Ever ready to dart in, draw blood in a bite.
The wide eyed expectants hope to find,
Salvation from boredom within dark kind.

Beware, beware that gentle dark night,
When All Hallows stretches senses tight.
We are waiting, circling, with delight,
Now you dance in our hell, with one bite…!

That’s a little something for all the “wannabe’s” that’ll be out and about this weekend in their funny clothes and heavy make-up… have a wonderful time won’t you…

Oooooh, wasn’t that bitchy? Care factor – fucking zero, i’m in a bitchy mood today so deal with it…!

…annnnnnd I feel like making sum NOIIIIIIIZE…!!!

For ANYONE that’s EVER been, or felt, DIFFERENT…!!!

You know, there comes time when some things are just more trouble than they’re worth yeah? Ever come across one of those things? Jobs, Cars, Getting out of bed, Facebook… etc.

So, in accordance with that precept we’ve shut down our Facebook portal… I mean, let’s “face” it (very punny eh?) Facebook has done more harm to the modern Vampire Culture than any other single event or process ever did. In fact, to be quite honest, yeah, let’s try that for a change eh? – Facebook, for something that started out as a “good” idea, Facebook has fucked up more lives and situations than any other single thing in the history of history. Just go and Google search some Facebook “bads”… you’ll see there’s only one possible conclusion.

That’s why we now have modern Vampires, with all their experience and knowledge, hanging around on fucking Gamer chat platforms… fer chrissakes already – does that put our people in the same league as momma’s basement dwelling, pop-tart stuffing, socially retarded gamers? What happened to dignity? Or… hey…maybe that means that the “gamers”, dare I say it… the “roleplayers”, now have a legitimate “in” to the modern culture?

It’s especially concerning when you hear reports of good, solid, respectable modern culture people being harangued, slapped down and insulted at the hands of the people in these “channels” and especially disquieting when you hear stories that it’s one or more of the supposed ‘moderators’ doing it… you REALLY wanna be there? Really?

Sheesh, as if things weren’t bad enough around the place…!!! Anarchy in the V.C. ???

Yeah, right on John…!!!

So, what’s next on the agenda… mmmm…mmmmm… more “social commentary”…. hmmmm…

Oh, yeh, yeh, that’s a thing…

Have you been following the latest MedSang Saga??? y’know, the one about manifesto’s, counter-manifesto’s, betrayals, excommunications, underhanded skullduggery, apologies, swipes and counter-swipes along with seemingly endless reams of “why’s and wherefore’s” about the whole thing?

I gotta be honest with ya, it’s getting worse than the Walking Dead… worse than General Hospital, worse than The Young and The Restless… I mean fuck me sideways people, really? An internal issue, a COMMON issue in just about every single group that’s ever been, or ever will be, in the culture and it’s getting bigger than Ben Hur?

I mean, why the sudden transparency and urgency to discuss internal politics by a faction which, historically, has pretty much rejected every single person who ISN’T absolutely in agreement with their “manifesto”???

Holy Fuck, suck it up and go back to your lives citizens…!!!

Y’see… these angelic little boys WERE prophets yeah?

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh we’re on a roll now aren’t we *manic giggle* but y’know the hoary old saying, “Some things just need to be said”… ’bout time we just stopped thinking it and stepped up right?

Bwaaaaaaaaaaaaahahahahahahahahahahaaaaaaaaaaaa…!!!

Oh-kayyyyy, we’re off to… ummm… ahhhh, here’s a good one

Yeah, I think we’ll make this time for… you got it… your favourite part of the show…

THE WEEKLY BEE-AHHHHHHHHTCH…!!!

 

Okay, we have this wonderful, amazing, swirling, roiling, boiling, rockin’ an-ah rollin’ thing called the Modern Vampire Culture. (Known fact)

Within this splendid amalgam of social microcosm we have a myriad of individuals who are walking many paths, following many faiths, credos, manifestos ec. etc. etc. We have Havens, Houses, Temples. Cults and so forth – We have Elders, Leaders, Magisters, Matriarchs, Patriarchs, Lords, Princes, Goddesses, Kings and Queens who (sometimes) have some semblance of control over what goes on in their “Houses” and battle for influence without… they fight a war for the hearts and minds of “the people”, persuading the persuadable to betray, divulge, delete, blacklist and generally “create anarchy” to unbalance their rivals… sound familiar?

Yep – it’s called The VC

Now, at the ground level, within this this magnificent melting pot we have the “members”, the proletariat, the “public” who are being fought over with grandiose schemes, proclamations and edicts, manifestos, creeds and vast, oft times unintelligible “speeches” and rhetoric… yes, it’s like a sad semblance of the Imperial Roman Empire of antiquity but without a Senate…!!!

And you know what? PEOPLE DON’T REALLY GIVE A FLYING FUCK ABOUT IT ALL… Y’all driving away more good people with the stupid games and bullshit than at any other time in the history of the whole thing.

Really, people, in general (and I’m speaking from a vast range of comments that I personally have received) are really, really, really sick and tired of it. So, just think on that for a minute – build your empires, hold your enclaves and develop your manifestos but at the end of the day WHAT GOOD IS HAVING AN EMPIRE WHEN THERE’S NO ONE IN IT BECAUSE THEY THINK YOU ARE A PRIZE DICK…???

Nuff said…

Meme by T.

There’s something else that’s been in the back of my mind for months and goes back to a little while back when my lady and I got suckered into a particular situation that turned out to be one the most heinous examples of bullshit, misrepresentation and psychological manipulation ever… Loyalty? Honesty? Integrity? – as we say in AustraliaIN A PIG’S FUCKIN’ EYE…!!!

Okay, breaks down like this…

In our wild, weird and wonderful culture – as I mentioned earlier – there are many, many paths, trails, journeys etc. Everybody’s headin’ someplace, by some “road”, somehow and without reservation I wish everyone out there all the best of luck and good journey. I hold everybody to be free to follow whatever path – that’s one of the highest gifts you can give to another person, the right to be what they will.

Having said that, let’s say you go into a group, Haven, House, Temple…whatever… you go in because it is a – see above list – for Vampyres. When you get inside you find there are Vampyre-Therians, Vampire-Witches, Vampire-Fae, Otherkin, all kinds of folks in there – great…! Wonderful..! Amazing…! Vive la difference I say, it’s a chance to learn from other sub-cultural factions and celebrate the diversity in our modern culture – then it begins… “Oh, you should be a Vampire/Therian/Fae/Witch/Otherkin… especially if you’re going to be in our haven…! Let’s put you in with these fine folk…”

WHOA…!!! Hold the boat… you said you honour ALL paths, right?”
“Yes but…”
“Hang on a minute, if you honour all paths, what about my path?
“Yes, well, we are a more ‘spiritual/theological/esoteric/metaphysical’ (whatever) house”
I’m a Vampyre
“Yes, well, that’s fine, you can be a Vampire…we just think you need to be…”
“But I’m a Vampyre, just a Vampyre, that’s all… I don’t have any spirtual/esoteric/theological/magickal etc. interests… I just want to learn…”
“Well, of course you can learn, here, here, read this… it’s our handbook/manual/bible/manifesto… it’ll make everything clear to you dear.”
“WHAT’S NOT CLEAR ABOUT I’M A FUCKING VAMPYRE? ARE YOU A FUCKING RETARD? ARE YOU BLIND? DEAF? HAVE YOU ACTUALLY UNDERSTOOD WHAT I’VE SAID ABOUT MY PATH… A PATH THAT’S AS RESPECTABLE AS ANY OTHER? WHAT THE ACTUAL LIVING FUCK… HAVE YOU GOT TWO BRAINCELLS TO RUB TOGETHER???” 

Yep, that’s actually happened to my wife and I on more than one occasion now and then, after you’ve done ALL the work you suddenly become the REAL BAD DUDE/DUDETTE and you’re fuckin’ shafted, rudely, with a blunt fucking sceptre…

Vampires/Vampyres who are just that – MOTHERFUCKING, A-GRADE, 100% REAL LIVING VAMPYRES… and you wonder why there’s so many “RONIN” vampyres around…!!!

WOW…!!! Fuel dissension man, what a ride…!!! Yeah…fuckin’ sing along mothers…!!!

Betcha I can’t get this on our good friend Lady Sylvere’s Grumpy Vamp…!!!

Y’know, I’ve been “awakened” – if ya wanna use the term since 1979. Awakened as a Sanguinarian in the days before internet and Facebook and so forth, all we had then was each other, we didn’t have computers, we didn’t even have frickin’ cell phones – even in the darkest night we ALWAYS had each other. now we hear, from folks down NOLA way, the “spiritual” home of Vampires in the U.S. no less, that different factions will actually diss each other, in the street, in public as they go about their daily business. WTF is that???

There’ll be a whole load of you that are reading this and saying, “Yeah, yeah… blah, blah, blah… heard it all before…!”

Well, in the words of my sacred homekin…

T-Meme

FUCK YOU… We have fucked everything up and now we are heading toward leaving the mess to the younger generation. What are we going to leave to them?

img. source: Pond5

Yeah, exactly…

So, this is my message of warning to the younger ones, to the ones who will inherit, to the ones whom, hopefully, will build something better than we have…!

Yep, yep, yep, yep, yeppers…!!!

I feel so much better now, so much better because I know that there will be one person, maybe one only out of thousands, who will read this and it will help them make a better choice for them… when that happens I will know that my job has been done and done well. That’s about all we can ever hope for right?

So listen, everybody have a great Halloween, everyone be at peace, everyone think about stepping up and doing the right thing… above all… have some fuckin’ fun yeah?

THE WEEKLY BIATCH…!!!

So, who’s been watching the news lately? Who watched the DAY LONG broadcast of the Senate hearing on Cavanaugh’s nomination? Who watched Bill carted off to prison on a 3 to 10?

Well, THIS HAS GOT FUCK ALL TO DO WITH EITHER OF THOSE so just hold ya horses and sit th’ fuck down willya…

It’s frickin’ simple but I guess that here and now, in this country at least, someone’s gotta spell it out…

Okay, follow me very carefully now okay…

It is NEVER okay to approach a woman and make unwanted advances, disgusting verbal suggestions or allusions, put hands on them or molest them in ANY manner when they have NOT invited such.

See, wasn’t that easy… if a lady wants such attention she’ll let you know… if she doesn’t let you know BACK TH’ FUCK OFF ANIMAL

Where I grew up, if you talk dirty to a women without invitation you’re an animal, if you laid hands on a lady against her wishes you’re scum and her brothers (or male friends) beat th’ living fuck outta ya, if you sexually molested or assaulted a woman you’re fucking filthy scum and like as not you had better hope the cops got to you first…!!!

Now, I can hear the men screeching, “…but what if I’m the one being molested or abused?” GENTLEMEN, simple, WALK AWAY…!

’nuff said

Yeah, right, there, got it now? 

…and while we’re talking about having class…

“Nagy erdőben sötét és mély,
Kilométerem van, mielőtt alszom”

Awright kidz, that’s it from here for today… be safe and well and remember,

Make your balls happy…

“Vampire’s Ball”
Bram Stoker International Film Festival – Whitby, England

Good morning, we trust everyone is well today?

Well, it looks like the countdown, traveling and what-not is on. We’d like to wish everyone happy, safe and peaceful times with their balls and we would also like to remind everyone to take precautions, just the normal stuff you know but nevertheless it is sometimes good to remind ourselves what our balls are all for…!!!

No matter where you’re going or what you’re going to be doing over the Halloween period personal safety is the first and foremost consideration… things like being in a group, don’t leave your drinks unattended, don’t accept lifts from strangers, let friends know – if you’re going out – where you’re going, who you’re going with and what time you expect to be home.

Make sure you have phones with you – if you can, ladies, fit them into your gorgeous gowns somehow, if not might we suggest the time honoured garter?

Stick to public frequented areas, hang in the lights and noise and keep your wallets/purses secured – again, if you can fit them in your evening wear, if not have your escort take care of it ladies.

Consume responsibly, self-respect and public image might not count for much where you are from, your “home turf”, so to speak but in another city or town…

Image source: Gazette Review

Truly, if you do get into some strife LOOK FOR A POLICEMAN, they might look at you a bit strange in your Halloween rig but, at the end of the day, they don’t want anyone messing up their city.

Above all, have fun…

Yes, it’s a macabre time of the year, all full of ghosts, goblins, witches Vamps and Weres but at the end of the night we want to see everyone safe, well and with happy memories.

Event organisers, security for your parties is always going to be a consideration – make sure your guests, invited or public, enjoy a happy and hassle free environment – don’t mean to tell anyone how to suck eggs but if you’re going to have big balls make them happy balls… or, ummm, events…

Happy Halloween from John Reason’s Real Vampire Life E-Zine, we hope your balls are a smashing success…
