Well hostel 17 owes me kittens

Spudguns!  We are in the middle of another Mercury retrograde. Which means technology meltdowns, bad traffic accidents, storms of all kinds, and massive communication mix ups.  Remember, this happens three times a year for about 3 weeks each.
It's also a time for reviewing. Reviewing contracts, reviewing your goals, reviewing yourself.

And that's what I've been doing lately. Reevaluating everything. Every so often it needs to be done anyways right? Right.

When I started this blog, I had joined a bunch of online groups, all with the intention of just getting out there more. Online of course. They were suppose to be support/friendship communities but they ended up mostly being ratings pushes. I stopped partaking after a few months.
It just didn't feel right to me.  They kept talking about finding your tribe.  Which, is about the only thing I actually agreed with. Sort of. Finding your identity and going with it. 

Five years or so later and I'm still not in any "tribe" that I'm really aware of.  I'm just too weird. Too me.  And that's what I wanted Domestic and Damned to be.  Me on a plate. A large onyx plate covered in bats and coffins...Only it ends up the older I get, the less weird I really am.

I'm part of the Twin Peaks generation, and my younger sister is part of the Nightmare Before Christmas generation.  We both fall squarely into that whole Addams Family generation that seemed to sprout up in the last twenty years. And we just keep on trucking.

At one point, I had an idea, vision almost, of this blog being a Martha Stewart style how to blog with a vampiric twist.  yeah that didn't really happen. Ends up, I'm terrible at the do it yourself stuff.  And the older I get, the more I see it's not unique at all. In fact, it's a large genre all its own.

So, not as weird as I have always been led to believe I am. So sad when you think about it, rip my soul's rug out from under me letting me smash my skull on the edge of the crypt on that one...anyways, just waiting for the coffee to be ready, which given the fact I drink instant means me admitting that I haven't gotten off my arse yet to boil the water is a sad sad thing too, and thinking out loud that this blog needed a little something other than just the tarot videos I've been doing as of late; which I still have a few to post down the line.

The remake of the Craft...seems to be a big topic last few days with the broomstick crowd. I might have to really think about it before I chime in...or you know just open my mouth like I always do and let whatever drip out. But I think I will make that a whole post on it's own later.

So why might you be asking, the two separate Buffy the Vampire Slayer quotes for the title...why not?

kiss kiss noise.

Tarot Talk Episode 4

Here's the next installment in my tarot series. Again, from February 2015, this one has to do with the 3 of Cups and the Page of Cups.

I am working on some new themes for videos, I know I need to be more relaxed with the way I present the tarot. Somewhere along the last few years I lost myself. So, yeah...I'm also trying to figure out a way to bring some of my other blog topics into video form, without it being too...well too.

Till later...kiss kiss noise

Coffee and Tarot...tarot episode 3

Spudguns! This is the next video I did back in February in my tarot series. It's a bit more comedic, with many coffee breaks and me stumbling over the words I was trying to express. The cards were the 10 of swords and the 6 of wands.

May 10th 2015

Spudguns!   Yes, I am trying to get back to writing on this blog in a more regular fashion.

So you know we have yet another Mercury retrograde coming up next week right?  No? You didn't know that?  Well, we do. They happen three times a year.  And it messes with your communications, your technology, and travel. So expect your widgets and gadgets and flights etc to break down next week. Here's the kicker, they last for about 2 and a half -three weeks at a time too.

I didn't want to just slap another of my tarot videos in the post, not today anyways. I do, however, have five or six more on my youtube that I did few months ago, and will be adding them over the course of things. With plans to make a few videos just for the movie blog. At some point...soon. Some of which will be cooking related.

Until then...I would say more, but I know I will start ranting about the fact NBC cancelled Constantine. So, I'll just end it here for today.

Tarot break

I've been thinking about how to bring some life back to this crypt, and I think sharing some of my tarot stuff might be a good start.
I've been doing some tarot videos the last few months, trying to improve my speaking skills, and just wanting to get back to doing videos in general. Here's the first one I did back in February 2015.
