Though the notion of vampires was greatly exaggerated and adapted by the European writers through Carmilla, Dracula, Nosferatu to name a few, the concept of vampires predates everything that we’ve seen portrayed in the last century or so.🧵 ImageImage
Vampiric myths in and around the Indian subcontinent are as countless as constellations, with each culture, each tribe and subsets all boasting of their own mythos and lore, some so multifarious that it becomes difficult to pinpoint all.
The true concept of vampirism is less to do with drinking blood but more so with cannibalism. In pre-silk route historical accounts, if we are to abandon folklores, the fearsome nomads of the great Steppes grasslands were said to drink the blood of their enemies, and sometimes

We got to speak to a 'real-life' vampire🧛🦇​

Merticus, in his 40s, is the head of the Atlanta Vampire Alliance in America and has identified as a vampire since 1997.

While he hides in plain sight, he does feed on human blood😶
#vampires Man hiding
He is what many would consider a sanguinarian vampire – an individual who says they cannot adequately sustain their own physical, mental, or spiritual well-being without the taking of blood from other sources.

1A día de hoy ¿cuál dirían que es el caza ligero por excelencia? ¿El F-16? ¿El Gripen? ¿Y si hablamos de un aparato que era la mitad de la mitad?

Para mí, este es el caza ligero por excelencia, una pequeña historia del Folland #Gnat (y su hermanastro indio HAL #Ajeet)
2El padre de la criatura era el ingeniero William Edward Willoughby "Teddy" Petter, quien había trabajado previamente en numerosas aeronaves de la firma Westland, como el #Lysander, el #Whirlwind o el #Welkin Image
3incluso trabajó en el proyecto para mejorar el #Spitfire corrigiendo cierta inestabilidad del diseño original

Tras ciertas desavenencias con la dirección de @westland, en septiembre de 1944, Peter se despidió y se llevó consigo los trabajos para la propuesta B1/44 Image

Been down the rabbit-hole of #Croatian #folklore - here's a #thread of what I found:


This one is especially close as its my family island.
'From #Folklore to Fiction: Early Literary Manifestations of the #Vampire Motif'

Fun fact: the term 'vampyr' first appeared in an 11th century Slavic manuscript vilifying #Bogomils, a #Gnostic dualist heresy that was endemic to the #Balkans
'#Witches' Zoopsychonavigations and the Astral Broom in the Worlds of #Croatian Legends as (Possible) Aspects of #Shamanistic Techniques of Ecstasy (and Trance)'…

I started playing #guitar in college. Some of my friends back home played, so I thought I'd learn. It's been years since I kept up with it. With no job and an empty house, I had time. Plus, I could crank up my amp. Ava would have hated it. All the more reason to do it.
Strumming a few chords or playing a riff through a loud amp usually makes me feel better. It's more of a distraction this time. My amp is a little old. Even a #ragpicker might pass on it. "If you're not going to play it, sell it," Ava nagged. Life always got in the way.
Or I got in the way. Not even ten years ago I kept getting sick all the time. Painful stomach cramps would radiate weakness throughout my body. I learned how to wash it away like healing #rainwater. That's when I really started to figure out who I was and what I could do.

There's a tumblr post doing the rounds about Faeries and Vampires.. and I'm not sure I agree with it.. but it has got me thinking of my own Faerie/Vampire interaction using some of their lore...

Pallid Vampire waits by river at night, playing a lute or something

Elven blood is, by repute, the best blood. This Vamp's got a plan to get himself some of the good stuff

So yeah, plays his lute, says: "Oh look at me, just a talented young minstrel all alone in this big dark forest at night... Oh I hope some alluring women don't shown up"

Quick as a flash Queen of the Elves rocks up... "A talented young minstrel all alone in the forest? Poor baby, come along with me!"

"You're inviting me into your home?"

"Yes young man,"

He's on her horse, it runs into a hill and... they're in Faerie land.

It’s #Monday, I’m boozing it up at a 4 seat bar, the #barkeep is a long pourer, and I’m all fucking set if I get something stuck between my teeth.👇🙃 #RandomThoughts #drinking #OutAndAbout
Shooting the shit with a friend, she’s proud to be doing well with her plants - unusual for her.

The key was a #video explaining the benefits of pruning.

She needs REASONS. She got them.

Apparently, pruning in a particular manner stimulates growth hormones.
Of course, this led to me initiating a discussion about the #movie I just watched on Hulu, called “The German Doctor.”

The main character was Josef Mengele. #ThisHappened

People, this is why I’m known in my circles as “The Black Hole Of Conversation.” SMTH
