'The Count' is my idea of a vampire. My vampires are cartoonish and made of felt. They do not sparkle. The have OCD that manifests in their compulsion to count everything in their field of vision.
Or like 'Count Blah' from Greg the Bunny, they have an annoying vocal tick. See if you can pick it out in this clip.
Or they are like Brad Pitt's Louis in 'Interview With The Vampire' by Anne Rice. He had the most delicious ennui. Even with all his powers and immortality he STILL was a buzzkill in nearly every scene. I admire his focus.
I got the idea for this post from a blog I discovered when the blog's author left a comment here at the 'Cave of Cool'. See what can happen when you comment? You get featured.
In this case I recommend you check out Moody By Name. Steve pumps out the same irrelevant and irreverent balloon juice that I do but he does it in such a funny and well written way. I like that his biases are right out front and only fuel the comedy. I can work with a snarky bastard like that.
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
