The Vampire That Hollywood Missed

Leslie Kendall Dye | Posted 06.17.2015 | Books

Fevre Dream is about friendship as much as it is about ghouls in the night. It is about the violence in us all and the choices that determine our character. It is also suspense at its finest, paced to maximize dread.

The day our selfies accurately reflect our inner lives is the day we become an integrated species. This is the day the Shadow recedes and the Self of higher awareness shows up. It's a day worth waiting for. The struggle is right before us, projected on our computers, phones, TV screens and in new genres of literature dedicated to the paranormal underbelly.

Da Sweet Blood of Jesus

Dwight Brown | Posted 04.14.2015 | Black Voices
Dwight Brown

Spike Lee, the old guard of black indie filmmaking, gets his mojo back with this classy, urbane, bloodsucking art film that is a beauty to behold. Sophisticated, demented, eerie, erotic -- prepare to be shocked and flabbergasted.

Marshall Fine | Posted 04.14.2015 | Entertainment
Marshall Fine

Written and directed by the team of Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi, this film presents a flock (coven? pride? school?) of vampires sharing a flat in contemporary New Zealand. The documentarians supposedly not only have been granted access to film the vampires' private lives but have been promised that the vampires won't eat them.

These aspects of the production were what made the adaptation work best for me. In film, special effects can make flying vampires look naturally at home in an otherwise realistic world. This is harder in an intimate theatre space.

I haven't made a New Year's Resolution in many years, because they've always struck me as somewhat desperate. A bit like lines drawn in the sand: bold and dramatic and exciting. That is, until the tide comes in and washes them away.

Ethan Rabidoux

Payday loan companies have managed to fly beneath the radar of public scrutiny for far too long. I suspect it's because their victims are the weakest among us who don't have a voice.

Since vampires need to avoid sunlight, we found the average number of cloudy days in a year for each city. Then we looked at how long the bars and clubs can serve alcohol, which is a good indicator of how late places stay open at night (giving vampires something to do).

'Ultimately, my advice would be the same for any writers -- write about real characters and interesting plot lines. LGBT readers want representation, not lectures or sob stories (at least not all of the time).'

The Irony of Current Russian-Ukrainian Relations

In all the wise commentary on the tragic Russia-Ukraine situation, I have seen few observations (admissions?) that 20th-century Ukraine is essentially a Soviet geopolitical construction.

Saying 'No' to Horror Movies

Marshall Fine | Posted 07.27.2014 | Entertainment
Marshall Fine

For starters, I have no interest in the supernatural and paranormal -- mostly because I don't believe in it. (Of course, that's the perfect set-up for a horror story.) I've never had a paranormal experience, though I'm sure there are people who believe they have.
