The thing is if you are looking for some insight into the world of vampire folklore and aren't quite ready to invest hundreds of dollars for some key library necessities, the next best thing you do is check out Anthony's blogs. I'm a big fan of his work as you can tell from an interview I did with him on our site Vamped, early this year. I'm not trying to promote him for the sake of being my colleague, but because he is an extremely thorough and talented writer. I have mentioned before on Vamped he inspires me every day. [read more]

It's almost summer and the flowers are in full bloom, the grass is green, the sun is setting later and the familiar smell of BBQ floods the neighbourhood each night. You noticed the family next door finally sold their house and last week a new guy moved in. You watch suspiciously as your new neighbour exhibits strange behaviour? Only going out at night, not being very sociable, dressed in black everyday and he is sporting that funky haircut. Perhaps he is just a night owl or he is the infamous Lord Vampyre from the Lego Monster Hunters line trying to retire from the spotlight since shooting to fame in 2012? [read more]

Do You Think You Have Logolepsy?

May 5, 2014 // 3 Comments

Proud of my new project I showed my friend Anthony my masterpiece and due to his Scooby Doo nature, he began to analyze my over usage of words as opposed to pictures. This in depth conversation was an eye opening experience. It made me realize the condition had been there the entire time, just I had no idea there was a term for it. I had always assumed my little quirks were just part of my visual learning style and the simple fact that I love reading. Part of this could be true, but the further we delve into the discussion the more it all came together and made sense. [read more]

Sex, Blood and Marketing—Oh My!

April 4, 2014 // 0 Comments

At first glance True Blood may appear to be a show about blood, gore and vampires, when in reality it is way more complex. The show actually has a story line unique to it's own and delves into the world of witches, vampires, shape-shifters, faeries, and hybrids. It takes place in a small town called Bon Temps where Americans eat burgers and tote guns, religion is as pure as apple pie, people don't lock their doors, everyone knows everybody's name, porch swings are a common occurrence, and oh yeah, vampires hang out in the local bar drinking Tru Blood.

November 7, 2013 was a amazing day for me. It was the day I was fortunate to meet Anne Rice, a woman that has influenced me since high school. Over the years I have read hundreds of books, but this one author stuck out from the rest causing me to pick up one novel after the other. [read more]

Every year for Christmas I always get books! Most of the time I usually get something random like cook books, but this year I was on a mission and had very specific requests. A good friend highly recommended these two books to me last month so it was a hands down decision to add them to my Christmas list. [read more]
