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:
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.
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.
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.
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.
