Trick or Treat, Smell My Feet, Give Me Something Good To Eat

Halloween is a time to be thankful…a time to reflect, a time to reinvest in oneself, a time to rejoice…

Wait. No.

Dracula

Dracula, vants someting vrom you!

If you’re like me it’s a time to finish a really SCARY book  about VAMPIRES called The Strain by Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck Hogan and have a book club discussion at Hell’s Kitchen with your Book Club called Book Club For Hotties.  This is a group of world-class literate hotties who like to 1) read, and 2) eat. (Not necessarily in that order) Books 4 Hotties is no longer just for hott babes of the female of the species either. Our first (token) male member (heh) is joining us on Sunday, and that would be my own personal lover of vampires, Steve.

I would add that The Strain is destined to be a movie, and it’s destined to be a big hit. It’s the first in a trilogy by the peoples who wrote Hell Boy I & II and Del Toro also penned Pan’s Labrynth. It has vampires, a tepid relationship between co-workers, a hot rat exterminator, and creepy rich guy who is trying to take over the world and become immortal at the same time. Mwuahhahahahaha!!!  There are some problems with the book, but you should read it for yourself to find out what they are. There is a great deal of scary suspense, and it is a fast read, so I think all you non-book club types will dig it.

The Kid is dressing up as a mime or a Frenchie artist or a beatnik, he can’t really decide. He went from wanting to be a knight, to a dog, deciding to be a lab over a dalmatian, Bobo fet (sp.) from Star Wars, a Viking (not a football viking, but an Eric the Red sort), to a mime. He has a problem not talking, so I am not sure how this mime thing will work out. We saw the Masterpieces of the Louvre exhibit last night at the Minneapolis Institute of Art, and thus he was inspired to go French.

    The original Dracula movie is one of my favorites. I had seen it several times before I learned that there is no soundtrack – so several years ago, Patrick and I went to Northrop Auditorium to watch the movie while the Kronos Quartet (sitting behind the movie screen on stage) played the new score by Phillip Glass. That was a night to remember – and the music was perfect.

    Awesome Sue, our friend Paula used to have a coffee shop and she screened the silent Nosfuratu with music and it was great!
