It’s raining again…

Which is irritating really… Though I haven’t really had a chance to wear my red PVC raincoat this year…

<winks>

Anyhoo… What to discuss today…

Hmmm…

Oh! I know!

This.

Yes it is another political discussion/rant/opinion…

Just has one little mention of Succubi in it which is:

Today, in the post-Columbine, post- 9/11 United States, the sublime has been evacuated while the gross substance of horror has been literalized, commodified; those pleasurable chills once roused by apparitions and succubi are now evoked by a grisly imaginary no longer situated in the imagination.

Now I can’t argue against his opinion… If you look at all of the movies that are appearing it is mostly shock factor and little substance whatsoever in them…

And of course the confusions with Succubi and Vampires I’m not going to rant over again at this point, though I would love to see ONE movie get it right for once…

But I am going to say this…

Horror is what it is and it will always be the way it is in the movies…

What is being forgotten is the sensuality that IS a Succubus and what she can be…

Just having blood for its sake and losing all of the other possibilities doesn’t make for a good movie or a good character in it whatever it is…

But regretfully the movies I think will not be returning to anything that can be seen as interesting in my eyes for a while to come…

    No, Majesty, that is why we have to write our own stuff.

    Now, if we could just MC a few studio heads, we might have something.
