{April 6, 2007}   The Renfield Movement

The Renfield Movement is what I have been calling my essay (some would say my manifesto). And I guess it’s time I started to explain it. Pretty much everybody around the hcvp headquarters knows what I am getting at, we see it every day on the city streets and in the media. Now I know this is not going to be a popular idea, or at lest I should say not a positive one. What I am meaning when I say the Renfield Movement, is the fact that Vampirism has become a religion. Not the act of vampirism (though one could say it has but that is another conversation in itself) but the fact the media has turned the idea of the vampire into a god. Alot of “lifestylers” have bought into the media’s fictional iconic vampire and mixing it with paganism have created a religion based on the vampire. Therefore more and more people in the last 35 years have become part of the Renfield Movement. This is my thesis, and the main point to my essay. I will be talking more about this over time.

Your Primary Mythical Creature

Fire Types
The main strength of the Fire types is achievement. The second element indicates the most probable focus for this urge to achieve.
Fire with Air

Astrologically associated with Sagittarius and the Ninth House

Dragon types are charismatic leaders. They exude confidence and optimism and thrive on competition. They are progressive and expansive, socially oriented, and eager to achieve something for the greater good. They are informed by their love of ideas and exciting possibilities, and are often guided by strong moral and religious feeling. They can usually back up their plans with faultless logic. They are constantly active, moving restlessly from project to project, often having several going at once. They need to have control and will delegate tasks to people they can trust to perform well. They work hard and play hard. They are popular, both at work and socially. They have a flair for the dramatic and for display, but nevertheless they can be difficult to get to know intimately. They crave stimulation, are unconventional, and hate red tape.

Your Shadow Creature

Water Types
All the Water types have problems relating to feelings and closeness. The weakest element indicates the main focus of these problems.
Water and Earth

This shadow is by turns self-neglecting and over-indulgent and exhibits lack of discipline and self-control. A proper diet is avoided while harmful practices are pursued to excess. They are very active physically and mentally but produce nothing lasting. They want power and can be ruthless in their attempts to get it. They are secretive, and don’t trust others because they themselves can’t be trusted. They have an urge to dominate others and can be insensitive to their emotional needs. They are plagued by an underlying sense of emptiness that explains an apparent self-destructiveness. The biggest obstacle of weak Earth is to overcome self-centeredness and greed; the biggest obstacle of weak Water is to overcome insensitivity and alienation.

I just tried and failed at embedding a video for the Fall 2007 Fashion Highlights….speaking of Fashion, It seems to be in fashion right now to work with Tarots. I have been using tarots for the better part of 16 years, and still I find new things within them every day. The 4’s seem to be popping up alot as of late in my readings. I understand they are connected to the 4 elements of earth, air, water, fire (pentagrams, swords, cups and wands) what I just learned actually from reading
78 Notes to Self blog is that the 4’s mean that you are in the middle of something of substance. You have come past the planting stage of things and are ready to relax and enjoy, or rethink things. I also just found out today that Jupiter is going retro for the next few months, and that there will be blockages galore ahead, but when it returns to a direct phase in Aug. there will be benifits from this forced blockage.

{April 4, 2007}   Our Lipstick Jungle

I can’t believe it is snowing! We just got rid of all the winter and now a flash storm has covered the city once again! Damn it Janet! We have been working on the film over here at hardcore Vamps Prods., and this week were suppose to do some of the outdoor shoots, well crap! Now we will be all crammed into the office like hockey fans at a home game on Molson Night.
I just finished reading “Lipstick Jungle” by Bushnell. It was a good read, but I was disappointed by the ending. I have been a fan of her’s since “Sex and the City”, and loved both “4 Blondes” and “Trading Up”, but this one…left me alittle dry.

{April 2, 2007}   The Donald Trumps WWE

Lashley beat Umaga.
What does this mean folks? Well if you watch WWE then you know that at the payperview last night, Donald Trump got to shave Vince McMahon’s head bald. It has been a silly but pricey feud that the Billionaires have had for the last few months, hyping the largest wrestlemaina ever.

{February 26, 2007}   Trailor Park Boys The Movie

Cigarettes let’s go A common line in the series and not used enough in the film. I rented the DVD this week and LOVED IT! I wasn’t sure how they were going to get away with calling it TPB-The Movie considering the whole thing started off as a b/w film before spinning off into the tv series, but….Now that the history lesson is done this film strays from the tv shows usual buddy genre (Ricky, Julian, Bubbles) and deals more with the romantic comedy side of things between Ricky and Lucy. This gives us a few new characters, one being played by Canadian star Hugh Dillon ( best known for being the lead singer of the Headstones and star of Hardcore Logo) as Sonny the strip club owner. The boys are out of jail once again and out to do that one last job that will set them up for life on the easy. And it is not hidden that it is a Canadian film, they worked toonies and loonies into the plot. This is a fun film.

{February 15, 2007}   Torn between light and dark

I am curious. Anyone who is into the occult/wicca/pagan who might shed some light onto this for me. My friend calls herself a White Wiccan. She is all about magick without harming anyone. I see her point of view. My close male friend calls himself an Occultist. He doesn’t understand how one can be using magick without it somehow harming someone wither it be on purpose or not. I see his point of view. I see his point of view stronger then I see her’s. Is there a real defining line between Wiccan and Occultist? How can being a Pagan be light or dark? It is what it is. You chose to work with/against nature when you chose to use magick. He pointed out that most Wiccans would never dare to trust the Necronomicon the way an Occultist would. My female friend also talks about the empowerment of the Goddess when she talks about Wicca. She doesn’t believe in love/lust spells. She doesn’t agree with the use of spells for one’s own gain. But my male friend points out that even when you do a working for someone else, you are doing for yourself as well because you care enough about the person to feel the need to help. Therefore you are gaining something out of it, their wellbeing. Anyone who comes across this blog today, I would be interested in your point of view on the topic.

{February 9, 2007}   Was it drugs?

By now everyone has heard about Anna Nicole Smith’s death at age 39.
The former Playmate was found in a hotel room by a private nurse and body guard. Her body is being held for dna in the very odd court case of her baby daughter. Her own mother had done interviews saying she believes it was a drug overdose that caused her death. 3 different men have been named as the potential father of her newborn.

{February 7, 2007}   AAAAAAAAAHHHHH!!! Ranting

Where do some people get off?
I have joined a few groups on yahoo, and most of them don’t ask for an introduction but I decided to introduce myself in one because of the respect I have for one of the main members. No sooner did I then some small self-serving louse attacked me as being a spammer. If they had bothered to look at the websites I had in my intro they would have seen I am anything but. And yes I did check into them, not a website, or link or pic or anything…Ironic isn’t it? To top it all off they seem to have more nonsense posts unrelated to group topics then anyone else. Okay ranting done for the day back to your regular scheduled blogs. banner8.jpg
