Are You Thirsty, Charley?

In this house, Fright Night 2 is considered to be a perfect sequel. Nothing is lost from the first film, and the continuation of the characters is spot on. It has no official DVD release which completely, well, sucks. Thank goodness someone took the time to upload this scene in HD. I loves it.

Poem
















The Houses Aren't There Anymore

The houses aren't there anymore.
Just some rubble
and seeds that won't take.

The only movement
is plastic that ripples
in the wind.
Upturned bones
of broken frames
white in the moon's light.

I drive by some nights
when I can't sleep,
spy through windows
no longer there.
Faces look back at me.

Each time I hope
they'll wave me in,
night doors
swinging open.

But the faces remain still,
their plate expressions
staring the simple truth
it's not the lack,
but what comes after.

Sorcerer

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XOkfBbVZEGo
















This song gets stuck in my head quite often (it seems there's always a song up in there). It's from the film Sorcerer starring the always awesome Roy Scheider and directed by one of my favorites, William Friedkin.

Workroom


















Workroom

This is dark work, what we do
it stains
what it touches.

Spine-sung, bone-knotted,
we hold our tools
wet with our longing,
blood and bile.

Watchers from the windows
have no mind for it,
cover their ears
so as not to hear.

I don't blame them.
Even as I stand on this far side
I can scarcely see.
But I see,
I see.

I Never Liked Camp

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tg80CsS9src






















I must admit, I love this reinterpretation of a classic theme (click picture).

I find it's best to always use headphones - the music is so much more warm and intimate, and the little details don't get lost. At least, that's how I listen.

Night


















The Night Is Darkening Round Me
 
The night is darkening round me,
The wild winds coldly blow;
But a tyrant spell has bound me,
And I cannot, cannot go.

The giant trees are bending
Their bare boughs weighed with snow;
The storm is fast descending,
And yet I cannot go.

Clouds beyond clouds above me,
Wastes beyond wastes below;
But nothing drear can move me;
I will not, cannot go.
