Poe and Price

That cake was served at the Poe Museum in Richmond,
during the opening of the Vincent Price Exhibit on May 26th.
(The day before his birthday.)

The exhibit displays rare memorabilia from Price's eleven Poe-themed films,
 as well as a casting of the last life mask made of Vincent before his death.
It will be open till August 26th.

I must venture there before then!

The Baltimore Poe Museum also paid tribute to Vincent with this video...
(Near the end you'll see shots of him visiting Poe's grave in 1977.)

The Vincentennial celebration will continue here all year!

Note: Since I'm still unable to post comments,
I'm taking a brief break till the issue is resolved.

The Birthday Boys

Peter Cushing would be 98 today.
Tomorrow Christopher Lee will be 89,
and Vincent Price would be 100!
(He gets his own post.)

Though they often played enemies in their many films together.
In real life Peter & Christopher were best friends till the end.

"I don't want to sound gloomy, but, at some point of your lives,
every one of you will notice that you have in your life one person,
one friend whom you love and care for very much.
That person is so close to you that you are able to share some things only with him.
For example, you can call that friend,
and from the very first maniacal laugh or some other joke,
 you will know who is at the other end of that line.
We used to do that with him so often. And then when that person is gone,
there will be nothing like that in your life ever again."

- Christopher Lee (On his friendship with Peter Cushing)

(Anyone else having this problem?)
So, I'll reply to the comments on my last entry here:

I love Todd McFarlane's figures though!

Multimedia Review of Whoever Slew Auntie Roo?

I watched Whoever Slew Auntie Roo? (1971) on Mother's Day and fell in love with it.
Except for the ending. I was rooting for Roo.
I wish they made an Auntie Roo 2: Roo's Revenge.
She could've been a female Freddy, killing the kiddies in their dreams.
Tagline: Christopher & Katy will rue the day they sent her away!

I'd be kind of sad to see little Katy go though. I related with her.
Since we both lost our mom, and now depend on our big brother.

Anyway, it reminded me of one of my favorite songs by Katzenjammer Kabarett.
So, I decided to combine the two of them.
Here's the result.... (My first video!)

Gemini Girly Song

My darling baby now let's go to bed
But darling sounds like beloved instead
Mommy ignores the lurking dread
Sweet child of hers has twins in her head
Has twins in her head...
"I got twins in my head!!"

The bed was tucked, there was no one around
I wish I could move but my limbs are bound
The night is so thick and sweet Mommy's gone
Afraid of the dark and the voices come
The voices come
(and my Mommy's gone)

Dollies and puppets dance on the shelf
Night-night me, night-night myself
Pictures, voices and thoughts in whirls
Girlies kissing other girls and other girls

Silent moans: "Oh Mommy please help me!"
"Kiss her, no, kill her!" Can't help this uneasy
Dolly mixture of feelings and shadows
Anger and joy tension and sorrow
And everything goes...

Gingerbread bogeymen, void wedding dresses
Dance in the trees, giving cold kisses
Legions of shades walk by the windows
While winds blow the cries of weeping willows
(She's the one to know)

Through the moonlit forest pale feet ran fast
Trying to escape from herself aghast
The very last step was made to the river
Where lily-white dresses float forever
For ever and ever

Everything hastened in the fake roundabout
Poor Gemini girl, she found no way out
By her lily-white hand,
The dead dollies took her
And tied her to dreams for ever and ever

Gemini Girly came and said to me
"Don't you be worried, I lie with dollies
And they look after me
Just like sweet Mommy
Used to care for me
Used to care for me

And now every night, she comes in my sleep
Now every night she comes in my sleep!"...

[Note: I chopped about 30 seconds off. Listen to the whole song here.]
[Note 2: You can watch Whoever Slew Auntie Roo on YouTube too!]

Coast-To-Coast Crystal Lake Toast

You're invited...

WHAT: Pour a glass of Crystal Lake Wine (or any kind),
and photograph or film a toast to post.
A panel will pick the toasts they like most and award prizes!

WHEN: Next Friday, the 13th

I was going to order some Crystal Lake Wine,
but I'm too cheap to pay extra to get it in time.
I'll still be celebrating though! How about you?

I have lots of fiendish fun planned for May, (including a giveaway!)

I also received my first blog award from my favorite fiend, iZombie!

I'm instructed to pass it on to fifteen bloggers.
But first I must state seven facts about myself.
So, here we go...

1. "I am the girl anachronism." I feel out of place in this time period.

2. That quote is from a song by my favorite band, The Dresden Dolls.

3. Speaking of music, I'm an aspiring rapper singer/song writer.

4. I also aspire to be like Elvira, but those are some big cups to fill!

5. Speaking of size, I'm a midget fun size! A mere 4 ft. 11 in. tall.

6. So I'm often mistook for a kid. Especially when I wear lolita attire.

7. Yes, I'm a girly ghoul. I like dressing up and attending mad tea parties.

And the award goes to...

This was tough. All my followers are versatile and make me smile.
I noticed many of you already have this award though.
So, I gave it to the brilliant blogs who seem underappreciated.
I also want to thank everyone who's following me.
(If you're following me and I'm not following you, let me know!)
