Vampire



QUICK ! GET DOWN !

...shhhhhhhh !!!
...don't talk.
...just listen.

hear that ?
Creepy Alexander Crenshaw has 'escaped' from his graveyard crypt again. It seems like no matter how many times we drive a stake through his heart, throw holy water on him, spread purified salt around his coffin, or even leaving silver mirrors and hanging garlic inside his tomb...he always finds a way to come back and chase the residents around.

I still say we gotta decapitate him, burn the body, and spread the ashes over the Kalamazoo river. But NOOOOOOO. The priests don't wanna desicrate a human body. Pfffft !!!
Those silly knuckleheads just get in the way.
*sigh*

I need more sleep. Now what was that quote...?

"...the nethermost caverns are not for the fathoming of eyes that see; for their marvels are strange and terrific. Cursed the ground where dead thoughts live new and oddly bodied, and evil the mind that is held by no head. Wisely did Ibn Schacabao say, that happy is the town where no Wizard hath lain, and happy the town at night whose Wizards are all ashes. For it is of old rumour that the soul of the Devil-bought hastes not from his Charnel Clay, but Fats and instructs The Very Worm That Gnaws; till out of corruption horrid Life springs, and the dull scavengers of Earth wax crafty to vex it and swell monstrous to plague it.

Great holes secretly are digged where Earth's pores ought to suffice, and things have learnt to Walk that ought to Crawl..."

Does the stick have to be a specific type of wood, Isay? I've also heard about placing salt into a corpses mouth to prevent it from becoming a zombie.

Gruesome fun !
:-D

Thanx, Secret Creatures ! I still try to do fine line ink work now and then.

Howdy, PinknPretty ! Yeah, I had some fun fooling around with foreshortening here.
Glad you liked it !

Well that is really cool. The only vampires I care for live on BTVS and are blond and blue eyed. Therefore, how about I mail you a stack? Or you could chop his head off or set him on fire. Those are the only ways to kill a vampire. I know - take if from someone who can recite the dialog on Buffy. Seriously (yes very) this is a really great drawing. The perspective, everything. Very nice indeed. And this is not spam.

Heh.. Rocket Corpse. Nice one Steve, really got that movemtn down there. :)

You've done it again, Steve...I especailly enjoyed the quote at the end with it's aged colloquialist rhyme and meter.

 
At 10:24 AM, Blogger carla said...

I don't know what's more frightening...those fangs or the view up his nose! One thing I do know...I would definitely want to escape him. Nice work here. I get the feeling of a low flying stealth bomber...the perspective creates a real sense of menance. I always enjoy the stories you include:>

A hole in the tapestry of the universe was opened and you had to let this guy in! It reminds me in a way of the Langoliers (S.King) Chewed their way through the firmament and beyond. You have a knack for mixing the wierd with the commonplace... is that a button down shirt?

Hey, Vampires need some love too! Expect for the Spam Vampires. Rip their hearts out & feed them to the volves! (Accent implied)

Well, Janey, my favorite vampires were from the movie 'The Lost Boys'. But I gotta agree, Buffy's vampires were pretty kewl at times too!

But I'm more of a 'Xena' fan than a 'Buffy' fan, but I also like 'Farscape' and 'Inuyasha'.

...and thanx for not being a spammer, Janey!
:-D

Hi Sarah !
Rocket Corpse? I like it ! Great term! I've gotta use that one of these days...heh heh heh!
:-D

 
At 9:27 AM, Blogger steve said...

Y'know, Mick, that's actually from a Howard Phillips Lovecraft story (I think), but I can't remember which one it was (I wrote the quote down cause it was so kewl). I'm strange like that...

But thanx for the props anyway!
:-)

That protruding proboscis rilly is kinda prominent, isn't it, Carla! Watch out for nasal maggots!
I'm glad you mentioned the stealth bomber concept, I wanted to convey a sense of fast approaching danger that you don't detect until it is too late.

Glad you liked the story too...there may be some truth to it...
:-D

Sometimes reality unravelles and comes undone, Ginger, and then I gotta clean up the mess afterward. Vampires are soooooo unsanitary!

I remember th' Langoliers! They kinda looked like giant Pac-Men with sharp rotating teeth. Very eerie!
Yeah, I've been heavily influence by Howard Phillips Lovecraft and his old horror stories, he combined the strange and the ordinary all the time.

And as for the vampires clothes, he's kinda old fashioned, and enjoys wearing outdated formal wear...

Vampires also need industrial strength deoderant, Tony. Except the spam vampires, they need an ass-whuppin!

Here comes the volves...I mean wolves!
:-D

Hey Steve, Great as always man!

Before I go, I gotta talk ta Joe! You are too kind, dude!

Thank you, Steve, for not giving us a pretty vampire. I like it!

 
At 4:21 PM, Blogger steve said...

Yeah, I have gotten a lil' tired of the romantic view of Vampires our culture has developed, Miss Daze. Necrophilia is dead, man! Ugly is in! Spam-mail is evil.

And Government Intelligence is an Oxymoron...
:-D

This particular vampire looks like he was shot out of a cannon! *G*

Spike (from tv's Angel which in turn was a Buffy spinoff) was burnt to the tiniest of ash particles. However one powerfully evil spell was able to bring him back to life, so anything you do to kill off this guy should be capped off with a spell to keep him dead. *G*

 
At 9:44 AM, Blogger steve said...

Thanx for the good advise, Aravis! I'll keep a spell or two in reserve, just in case...
:-D

Really enjoyed your posts. I have a hypnosis site I think you might enjoy. Let me know what you think.

Many people try to achieve goals. Most fail. Some strive, work hard and plan for all the details yet they achieve little or nothing at all. Others strive, work hard, plan and achieve huge success. Yet there are a few individuals who do little else than take small steps and seem to achieve a great deal with what seems like effortlessness. What is the difference between these people and which one would you like to be?
Most members of the human race fall into two categories - those who live in the past and those who live in the future. Most live in the past. Many of these are the people who achieve very little in their lives and are so fearful of the future that they dare not strike out to get anything. They are the under-achievers who hang onto bad episodes in their lives and either relive them time and again or look at new situations as similar potentialities. They say things like "all men are deceivers" or "all women are interested in is money" or "I can't do it. I tried before and it didn't work so why bother!". Due to bad experiences in the past they believe that all future events will turn out the same way if they dare to go after what they want.
The other type of person lives in the future. This type tends to create more of the things they want in life. They have a vision of where they want to go and exactly how they are going to get there. They work diligently at making concrete plans and they pursue those plans with a persistent ferocious appetite for success. These people are the high achievers - The Richard Branson and Bill Gates of the world. These people have much to teach us about setting and achieving goals.
However, there is a third type of person who almost goes unnoticed. They are the person who takes life in its stride and yet achieve most of what they want. I am sure you know of such a person in your life that just seems to saunter through life and yet they always come out on top. Or a person who you hear of that has decided to open a shop. You meet them a few months later and they have three shops all doing well! So what makes these people so successful and if they aren't living in the past and aren't living in the future where are they living?
I suppose you guessed it! Whether they are consciously aware of it or not they are living in the present. It is in the 'living' present that we have our greatest power. Everything happens in the present. You live your entire life there - even if your mind does not!

By becoming more aware of the present and by 'accepting' it as it is we are much more in control of our emotions and focus. When we live in the past we are fearful of making bad choices and/or getting hurt. We do not wish to recreate the past again! When we live in the future we can also be fearful of what might happen. But even if your future vision is full of power and worthy of working towards many people can, and often do, get stuck there. By constantly reaching for bigger and better goals they fail to enjoy what they have in the moment.
If you wish to start living a life that is almost effortless begin first by living in the present. Accept your situation the way it is and then you can enjoy what you have. Your focus changes from a memory of what was or a vision of what might be to a realization of what is. You become much more empowered to then see the beauty of life and also look at where you wish to make changes. But to make changes you must first accept the situation as it is. Trying to escape from your present only increases your focus on your problems by creating resistance to what is. Accept your life as it is now. Make no judgement, just accept it and then you will be free of doubt, worry, pain and fear. For you only experience these things when you live outside the 'moment'. hypnosis
