Ooh...which one to shoot first???

Vampgirl in Wordfish
missvontrapp (Uma Thurman) has a crisis on her hands. After citing a blunder in the ballot design, her hope that her past misdemeanours would go unnoticed is in tatters, and alienfox, her former aide (Christopher Walken), is being investigated for fraud. wildgift93 (Jodie Foster) cooks up a contract on her own life. Never was their a more interesting cabinet. Unless you include furniture.
Produced by ianiceboy


Vampgirl in Blood Clarinet
In this action packed epic, missvontrapp (Lacey Chabert) is a disgruntled informant with a libido to kill. She has to eliminate alienfox (Jesse Bradford) before her former partner, wildgift93 (Elisha Cuthbert), reaches him. Following a chain of very obvious clues, she sneaks into a subterranean lair under false pretenses. The action movie of the week!
Produced by ianiceboy


Rar! Both titles are appealing...especially if I get to be Uma Thurman in 'WordFish'...

..............................................

On another note...I really ought to get to bed lol!!

I cooked a very spicy chilli noodle thing, but could only eat half of it due to lack of appetite after the effort of cooking for oneself...then had a mug of Whittard's Malted Chocolate...might take another to bed with me...

Uber-Goth
Uber-Goth. So.... How does it feel to be god-like?
There's no denying it. You are a Goth QUEEN.
Demi-Goths worship you, Un-Goths fear you,
and other Uber-Goths despise you.
Please off yourself now, because it doesn't get any better than this.
And when you aren't around, the rest of us look better...

Do I get extra 'Uber Goth Points' for recognising the film from which that still in the quiz picture is taken?? Do I?? DO I???

*thinks it's high time she got back to her cabinet*


Nick Cave : The Carny

And no-one saw the carny go
And the weeks flew by
Until they moved on the show
Leaving his caravan behind
It was parked out on the south east ridge

And as the company crossed the bridge
With the first rain filling the bone-dry river bed
It shone, just so, upon the edge

Dog-boy, atlas, half-man, the geeks, the hired hands
There was not one among them that did not cast an eye behind
In the hope that the carny would return to his own kind

And the carny had a horse, all skin and bone
A bow-backed nag, that he named "Sorrow"
How it is buried in a shallow grave
In the then parched meadow

And the dwarves were given the task of digging the ditch
And laying the nag's carcass in the ground
And boss Bellini, waving his smoking pistol around
saying "The nag is dead meat"
"We caint afford to carry dead weight"

The whole company standing about
Not making a sound
And turning to dwarves perched on the enclosure gate
The boss says "Bury this lump of crow bait"

And then the rain came
Everybody running for their wagons
Tying all the canvas flaps down
The mangy cats crowling in their cages
The bird-girl flapping and squawking around

The whole valley reeking of wet beast
Wet beast and rotten hay
Freak and brute creation
Packed up and on their way

The three dwarves peering from their wagon's hind
Moses says to Noah "We shoulda dugga deepa one"
Their grizzled faces like dying moons
Still dirty from the digging done

And as the company passed from the valley
Into a higher ground
The rain beat on the ridge and on the meadow
And on the mound

Until nothing was left, nothing at all
Except the body of Sorrow
That rose in time
To float upon the surface of the eaten soil

And a murder of crows did circle round
First one, then the others flapping blackly down
And the carny's van still sat upon the edge
Tilting slowly as the firm ground turned to sludge

And the rain it hammered down
And no-one saw the carny go
I say it's funny how things go...

Uber-Goth? I'd have been very suprised if you were anything but, frankly. Knowing what film the still is taken from merely puts the black cherry on the cake.

I am a mere demi-goth but I still knew the movie that the still was from...

but then its the Crow...and everyone and their mother has seem that movie...

Weirdly I was thinking about that today....

Its true you know... all demi-goths would love to be uber-goths... some of us merely far below the mark merely cos we cannot be bothered with looking cool...

It's true. You have to admire the sheer hardcore commitment to the gothic aesthetic. It takes years to master, which explains why all the best uber-goths started young. Let's face it, if you're not uber-goth by the age of about 23, it's too late.

It's a great thing to aspire to though. Fashion, music, literature, stacks of history, all the flavours.

We demis can hide behind the excuse that we have competing interests, and therefore cannot fully devote ourselves to the cause, although we're right behind you ubers. Yes, that'll do it.

It's not The Crow...

It's The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari

The Demi-Goth image is of The Crow, however...
