Various Vampires on Tired Tuesday

It is Tired Tuesday (don’t judge), and I am resorting to my new favorite thing: downloading monster pictures from Facebook and writing stuff about them.  For one reason, I am mysteriously able to download on my own Facebook account once again.  I downloaded this one purely to test my machine:

He’s a pleasant-looking fellow.

It is a 17th or 18th century vampire burial. I downloaded it from Murder, Madness and the Macabre, one of my go-to Facebook pages.  After downloading that, I thought I would make this a vampire day and clicked around looking for more.  I went to The Golden Age of Monster Movies, always a good sources.

A new shot of my favorite guy!

Naturally I wanted to include Nosferatu, which, regular readers know, has my vote for the scariest movie ever.  I haven’t watched this one in a while.  Perhaps tomorrow I will give it a view.

Vampires can be scary in color, too.

Christopher Lee is the favored Dracula of many.  I do love the Hammer horror flicks of the 1960’s and ’70’s.  I only recall one vampire flick with Lee (perhaps you read my blog post about it).  I must seek out the other ones.

You didn’t think I would leave out Bela, did you?

What post about vampires would be complete without Bela Lugosi?  Oh, I’m sure others have written them. I may have written one myself.  I suppose your better bloggers would be writing scholarly commentary, comparing and contrasting the various vampires, perhaps including some of the blood-sucking lore and history of the legends.  And here we come to the ugly truth about me.  No matter.  It is Tired Tuesday, and I have made my blog post.  Now I must prepare for rehearsal for The Tempest (which I mentioned in yesterday’s post).  I must shake off my tiredness and act!

I hope I don’t meet up with any vampires.

  2. Not a vampire going on a month!You know those shards of glass headaches I have when the sun is shining? Well, I went to Dr Au for acupuncture for the first time(I went cuz I thought I had to ride the bus for a long time with someone and occasionally I find myself rolling out before my destination due to motion sickness and I didn’t want to inconvenience her) and I’m better. Didn’t know I could be better. The sun is just hot and bright now. God bless Dr Au! I still peek just in case and I’m still amazed it’s better.So, something to think about for your headaches : )Take care

    • That’s great that you found some relief! I’ll have to look into acupuncture. It’s appropriate to this post that you describe your headaches as “shards of glass,” because I believe that is how the female vampire’s voice is described in the book of “Dracula.” Take care yourself!
