What comes after…

Marvel Comics character “Thor”

The etymology of the word “Thursday” can be connected to the Norse mythology. The Norse god of thunder and lightning, Thor, gives its name to the day. Thursday literally means “Thor’s day”. –  Morris Eigi ( www.qa.answers.com )

So, I was watching, speaking of Thor, a little YouTube this morning and one of the featurettes was, “Who are the other superheroes that can pick up Mjolnir, Thor’s hammer?”

Well, turns out that the majority of them are women and, in the Marvel Universe comics, after Thor died, the mallet was taken up by a babe who, subsequently, became known as… Thor…!!! True story – apparently “Thor” is a title not a name… oh-kayyy… so what was Thor’s real name marvelites? I mean we all know Iron Man was Tony, The Incredible Hulk was Bruce but nobody ever mentioned Thor’s real name… was it Edwin? Arthur? Fred? Quincy?… so many questions unanswered right? Could it be that, if you’re a Christian, maybe God has a first name? I mean, we know Jesus right, and Joseph The Carpenter was actually recorded in a Roman census of Galilee way back when… what do you think God’s real name might be? Bears thinking about doesn’t it?

Alrighty then, now I’ve given you something to puzzle over here’s the latest from the “Maths Room”, Stats and Circulation for RVL this month have been stellar, a very big thank you to ALL the dudes and dudettes who dropped by over April…

 HEY… you ever get the feeling that you’re missing something? That there’s some great universal secret that somehow slid by while you weren’t looking? Don’t worry, happens to everyone and sometimes all you need to do is kick back and relax, just let it all out…!!!


The other you could try, I guess, is wait for nightfall, take a nice blanket, spread the blanket on the lawn and lie flat on your back staring up at the stars, do it buck nekkid if it pleases but I’d recommend warning the neighbours first…!!!

Ahhhh… now here’s something a little darker…

Some very good friends in Italy forwarded us a theatrical trailer from a major television and movie series production that’s going on down there right now…

We are very proud to acknowledge our close ties with, and support for, these friends and… well…check this out kids…

DEL DIARIO DELLA BESTIA FILM E SERIE TV – IL VIDEO PROMOZIONALE

…and with that we’ll leave you with your Thursday, have some fun where you can, don’t work too hard (cuz no one else is) and be safe…!!! We’re gonna go out with what is arguably one of the single coolest pieces of music that can possibly be listened to…

Ciao

Coming up in the interview rounds:

We are still hopeful of bringing you the interview, that we have been advised will be ASAP, we were granted with the newly established Vampire Court of Chicago – this one’s close to our heart of course. (Please note this is not a Court associated with the “Unity Project”

An interview with the Author of “Arcane Ramblings of a Teenage Vampire” is in progress and half done. We’ll have that for you soon barring fire, flood, earthquake or man-made disaster…

Don’t miss the second part of our interview with Goddess Rosemary Sahjaza as we continue to put to rest some of the rumours, guesswork, half-truths, misconceptions and other assorted comments that have been flying about lately.

Yeah, ooh… and speaking about other members of the wider overall community…
SWANS, our dear Swans – Black, White, any shade in between… without y’all we’d be a pretty sad bunch of Vamps. Blessings.

Ain’t that some cool-crazy groove??? One for the Ska-ists

One of the things I love about doing this is getting to “chat” and work with amazing people, finding out about what they do and why, discovering new outlooks and fresh ideas and opinions.

Once in a while a special opportunity comes along, an opportunity where the tables get turned. I’ve just completed, very recently, just such an adventure with Dave Wolff, writer and editor at AEA Fanzine.

In a full length interview with Dave I was able to share the what, where and why of RVL… and get deep into some other pet subjects that seemed to spark interest.

The interview has been published and is available at;

AEA Fanzine interview with Tim Bey of RVL

It was a rare pleasure working with a professional like Dave and to be able to contribute to the amazing AEA Fanzine.
