The Black Dragon Returns...

"They" say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but impersonation is just pathetic. As I was on vacation, someone who shall remain nameless opportunistically initiated a vile campaign to defame The Blackthorne Legacy, by making all sorts of fictional and scurrulous claims in My name, and even annoying others with infantile and insulting remarks - but this has now been cleared. The offender has been identified, excommunicated, and banished. So if you have received any correspondence from an email address other than DBlackthorne@yahoo.com or WarlockBlackthorne@yahoo.com, then it is false.

In the meantime, many wonderful opportunities have arisen and some really great possible prospects have come forth, inclusive of My writing of another book, called "Vampiricon", which details some of My personal techniques at etheric predation, and is also an additional primer for Dracomeroth. More information will be made available in the near future.

Mummy's The Word...

Enter at your own risk! Run by Proprietor Günter Von Hegel, this attraction features real corpses who have undergone a process called "plastination" which involves saturating the tissues with plastic and various epoxies, said to preserve a body for a hundred years. The corpses are positioned in various poses from varied professions, including a chess player with brain exposed, a pregnant woman, and two writers atop a horse. Additionally, various medical conditions are featured smoker's lungs, cancers, and tumors. Von Hegel, A.K.A. "Dr. Death" and "Frankenstein", asserts that these are for educational purposes, and is incidentally, quite the showman himself, sporting a fedora and cheek scar {sound familiar?}

So where in the world did he acquire the bodies? Not from midnight excursions at the local graveyard, but from both donations from aficionados {you can sign up at the event} and in the beginning, from unclaimed rejects who were originally scheduled for incineration. Being a Doctor, he decided they could be placed to better use, and debut the necro-art in Japan. Since then, so far, there have been mixed reactions. On a couple of occasions, some patrons have even fainted at the sight of these incredibly preserved and detailed pieces. At one point, one man sought to poke at one subject, and another covered the pregnant woman {"mummy dearest"} with his coat. But overall, the reactions have been primarily that of dark interest that would be attractive to Satanists, considering Rex Diabolos Church's works {particularly "The Abomination of Desolation" series}, and Owen Lietch's Necro-Sculptures. I Am also reminded of Leilah Wendell's Museum of Death, and a tribute to Azrael, The Angel of Death. So when this attraction necromances in your area, do take a perusal.

Rating: 5/5.

Addams Family Discussion Group!

Addams Family Discussion Group: I have initiated the first ever Addams Family/Munsters/Bewitched/Dark Shadows Discussion group, where fantoms of these timeless presentations may gather to ruminate the various theories, values, ethics, and practices of these prototypal characters, which are all-too familiar. Can you relate to these situations, attitudes, aesthetics, eloquence, and etiquette? A lighter shade of darkness, with a Satanic sense of humor. If so, this group is for you!
