The Minkoff Minx {Go Ahead…Make Your Move!}

"I get very passionate about what I think is right."-Hillary Rodham Clinton

I vant to suck your blood…

So, I just saw the trailer to this new movie coming out next month…and I really want to see it!

It seems every generation has its own vampire obsessions. For my kids generation it seems that the Twilight Series is the one that is causing a stir.

My generation of the 80’s was hip to all the Interview with a Vampire, and the rest of the Vampire Chronicles written by Anne Rice. I absolutely loved the books, but the films…meh. I must say that Kirsten Dunst was such an awesome little actress in Interview…

As far as my absolute favorite media production of a vampire story has to be Dark Shadows. The one that came out in the late 60’s and early 70’s.

My bird, a cockatiel named Mahi, even used to whistle the tune to Dark Shadows. I had a poster of Jonathan Frid as Barnabas Collin taped up on my wall…next to Howard Jones and Sting. I even made up a parody song with my Cousin Irene and my mom…instead of “Bette Davis Eyes”…it was “She’s got Julia Hoffman Eyes.”

Every sucker Plecostomus fish we ever had was named Barnabas, and every little catfish in our tank was called Willie…cause they always had to clean up the crap that Barnabas left.

Now that Johnny Deep and Tim Burton will be doing a movie based on the  old series…I am sure that a new generation will love Barnabas as much as I do.

  • Sunday Reads: Don’t expect humanity from a #ShitholePresident
        When talking about the racist president in the White House… (and I still can’t believe a year later that turd of a man is the president.) Whether, it be Asshole or Shithole, both words describe both his personality and outlook on and to humanity. Well, I should place a caveat there and state […]
  • Wednesday Reads: Need a Laugh
    Yeah, that image above is perfect. That about puts my family’s emotional state on display, “Fuck it all  Man.” My mom’s cancer is back and if you remember, surgery was not an option because of her blood issues and problems with anti-bodies…and chemotherapy was difficult because she could not tolerate the medicine cocktail that was […]
  • Sunday Reads: Make This Weird
    Do you think some people consciously start the day saying something like that to themselves? It’s going to get weird…I’m going to make this weird. I think tRump surrounds himself with people who have that sentence as their mantra… I would say that tRump also makes this his chosen path to follow, but I am […]
  • Wednesday Reads: Between a Rock, a Cock and a Hard Place
    Which way do you go? That is one tough decision… At any rate, things are getting bad over in the Northeastern United States. I mean, when sharks are becoming “sharkcicles,” it is time to take these cold mutthafukken temperatures for serious. Sharks are freezing to death in the US, due to a record cold winter […]
  • Sunday Reads: New Year 2018
    Hell yes, it is time for another fucking year to roll around. So let us start the party early with this kickass artwork by surreal artist Surazica. There is something about that poodle’s attitude that grabbed my attention. You can scroll through some close-ups here: I don’t know what 2018 will bring, but I do […]

Its dark green, glossy leaves shaded politicians and heads of […]
