Hmm...looks like it might have some potential. I love a good vampire flick.

Nothing will ever top “Bram Stoker’s Dracula” for me, though.

The one with Gary Oldham? That was a good one!

Bring back some John Wayne type westerns. I am tired of seeing people bite each other when fistfights will do.

Yeah, I saw the World Cup too. ;-)

They’re out there. Well they’re cop shows set in the middle of no where, like Justified and Longmire, but they have a lot of the old western ethos.

Dracula has sort of been done to death (no pun intended). I still think Bela Lugosi was the best Dracula and that was the best movie.

The one with Winona Ryder was pretty good.

That’s the one. IMO that movie had it all-—history, gorgeous cinematography, and good scares.

Yes, Lugosi was from the right place, had the right height, right face, and the perfect voice and accent. Dewight Frye placyed Renfield perfectly as both the sane businessman and the enslaved lunatic.

"Bring back some John Wayne type westerns."

How about Humphrey Bogart as a vampire?

I love that movie. Oldman was spectacular, and the entire story was true to the book. I loved the manner of speaking, the costumes, the visuals, and the horror of the whole thing.

We have it on laser disc and on DVD.

We still have an old VHS copy (don’t know why) and the DVD. It’s one of my absolute favorites; I can watch it again and again. Everything in that film just came together perfectly.

Gary Oldman will always be “Dracul” to me.

Oh, I forgot about the music, including the song by Annie Lennox which plays over the closing credits. It’s wonderful, too.

Bryan keeps things. We have a bunch of video tapes, laser discs, and now a whole lot of DVDs.

We research TV show reviews, and if the shows sound good, we buy them as each season comes
out. We have quite a few of them.

We don’t have cable or TV reception, so we have no alternative if we want to watch the good shows.
Stargate, Stargate Universe, Star Trek (TOS, NG, and Voyager), Paladin, The Avengers, Game of
Thrones (a bit too pornographic, but a good story), True Blood, Farscape, Starhunter (very cheesy,
but **Michael Paré — need I say more?), Being Human, and who knows what he’s going to buy next?

** Streets of Fire with Michael Paré and Diane Lane. We really liked the music. We have it.

It looks to be a blending of the true story of Vlad Tepes with the fictional "Dracula" vampire mythos.

The novel is actually about the dangers of illegal immigration.

My David tends to hang onto stuff, as well...especially if it has anything to do with electronics.

TOL, do you like The Twilight Zone? I bought the complete set for David for Christmas one year. It has episodes we never saw on TV.

"** Streets of Fire with Michael Paré and Diane Lane. We really liked the music. We have it.

I can't believe you mentioned Streets of Fire, lol....same here. I've never gotten over "I Can Dream About You."

Oh! I can’t believe that I forgot we have The Twilight Zone!

We have the entire series, and we actually remembered a lot of the episodes from 45 years ago. ;-)

I forgot to mention that we have Streets of Fire on a laser disc. There isn’t a song in that movie
that we didn’t like. “Sorcerer” was one of my favorites, but they’re all great.

Yep, that Twilight Zone series is a treasure to own. I remember first seeing it back during the ‘80s, when it would come on late night TV. I’ll never forget the feeling of being blown away by “Will The Real Martian Please Stand Up.”

I can’t remember “Sorcerer”, but I’m heading over to Youtube to refresh my memor. ;)

“Sorcerer” was written by Stevie Nicks, and it has a great melody and greater lyrics. Here it is:

My pleasure, friend. That is the version that was in the movie,
sung by Marilyn Martin, with back-up singing by Stevie Nicks.

And by me when I’m listening to it, LOL!

Martin is the most common last name in France. Sort of like Smith or Jones here.

Stevie’s voice is easy to make out, even when it’s in the background. Love it.

I always liked her look, too. That big, wild hair!

LOL! I got in trouble in high school for having my hair “back-combed and lacquered.”

Tee hee! The nuns had hissy fits over that 1960’s hair.

But I was always getting in trouble for some silly, petty, minor transgression or other.

[Chuckles] That probably would have been a smarter strategy for me, but I had a kind of crazy home life.

By the time I was 7 years old, all of the rest of my immediate family were adults. That can really mess you
up if they like to tease children, make them cry, and tell them they are stupid.

My relatives were all older, too. My parents were in their forties when they had me. My cousins were adults when I was born. (First cousins, anyway).

I just don’t understand how someone would get pleasure from making a child cry-—least of all family! How awful, TOL. That kind of treatment during childhood is very hard to shake off and outgrow.

So, so mean.

The western is dead.

The millenials and kids today can't relate to westerns since it has never been a part of their culture. And that's sad.

The most recent westerns, Lonesome Dove and Broken Trail with Robert Duval were excellent.......

It has been 60 years since then, and they are all gone except my oldest sister, who is 80.

I am doing a bit better now. ;-) Life with Bryan and the kitties is good.

I’m glad.

I had my own issues during childhood and the teenaged years. They shaped how I thought and it took a long time to restructure that...I’m still not all the way there. But it IS true that a good, loving husband & soulmate is a healing balm.

(Kittehs, too, naturally).
