Sparkle and Shine

The photo is flipped by the way, I can't seem to get it the right way, but here is my tattoo. It is actually the left arm.

Now, on to other things.
The year 2008 will be over in like 48 hours or so, and it was an okay year, not fabulous but didn't totally suck either.

I find myself on a bunch of new websites talking to morons. Oh sorry, I mean 16 year old kids who think they know everything but can't even type a sentence without using numbers in place of letters. You know the kind I mean. I hate that. Yes I know I need to find someone my own age to play with, but given the state of the internet that is almost impossible. And forget the people where I live, they are nothing but drunk bar stars.

And the topic seems to still be about the Twilight book/movie. Everyone I have come across seems to be in love with Edward Cullen. 15 year old girls are swooning at the idea of this character. When I asked one girl in a book chat about why it was she was soooo in love with him her response was the parts in the book when he comes into Bella's room at night through her window.
I don't know about the rest of you adults out there, but if I were to wake up in the middle of the night and see some dude had broke into my window he better be covered in blood with a large knife in hand twitching cause the voices told him to be there.
Because that is not romance it's a restraining order.
Someone else was talking about the part where Edward is telling Bella that he doesnt want her hanging around other guys. Again, the possessiveness is not sexy it's scary.
And if this is what the young women are drooling over, then we have just prepared this next generation for abusive lovers.
Not that it seems to matter, as we just raised a generation of men who are gloomy brooding babies. What is with the hair? If I live to be 200 I will never understand this socalled Emo subculture.

Speaking of guys with unwashed hair, has anyone been following TNA Impact lately? Note to Chris Sabin it's called shampoo.

Belly Dancing P.2

Well...I am sheepish to say that I let it slide for the last couple of months. And now I am wishing I hadn't. Got back to my belly dancing today and not only was I so out of shape I could not remember anything I managed to learn this past summer. I am starting pretty much back at ground zero with my training.
Given that it is being incompassed into other aspects of my spiritual rituals right now, I feel mad at myself for having gotten out of the routine I was in only 5 months ago. At lest now I have an idea just how much I need to do to get back on track.

Have We Gone Past Good Taste?

I am a fan of horror. Let me rephrase that, I am a fan of good horror.
Vertigo, Rear Window, Psycho, Nightmare on Elm Street 1, Hellraiser 1, Carrie, Secret Window. But what I have been witness to this last week on some of the discussion boards have nothing to do with horror. Everyone wants just death and ass.
One person said if you want mindless bloodshed watch the news, if you want sex watch a porno. Well I have to agree with them. We watch horror films not just for the high amount of bodies but for the characters. What is more frightening watching someone running through the woods screaming for 2hours or watching how someone slowly begins to doubt reality?
Madness to me has always been creeper then some dude with a hockey mask. There is a reason H.P. Lovecraft is considered the master of horror. He planted the seeds of doubt and panic into all his main characters hinting at something more sinister and darker then we could understand. And he did not need to hide his monsters behind sports gear.
Bram Stoker delighted audiences and made them faint with baited breath when he wrote Dracula over a hundred years ago with the idea of temptation of the soul. Mary Shelley handed the world the beginning of the end when she wrote Frankenstein almost 200 years ago; delivering mortality vs morality.
When did temptation and ego become the gunk we today are clogging our minds with?
I am on another site where the owners are having some troubles with the hosting company. Why? Because they were told to clean up their site. Too much sex too much death. The one owner is trying to locate a place that will let her post uncensored porn and gore. What she isn't understanding is that she's not going to find that on a free hosting site. Nice person but total posterchild for the desensitized generation-sheep I am talking about.
The world is truly a gutter and everyone is just playing in the sewers. Have we become as mindless as the zombies on our screens ;simple sheep , is there a chance for us as a society to free ourselves from this dumbass- watered down -so called demon thrall? Or have we as genre fans gone past good taste because no one is serving us anything but regurgitated slock?
