Friday Favorites, Fantasy Art & A Funny...

Wheee! It's Friday again! My work Christmas party is tomorrow. Should be fun. Doubt it will be the kind of raucous affair you see in movies, lol!

Anyway, on to the topic of Friday!

Favorite books/authors: K. C. May has remained in my mind as a favorite. I'm beginning to like Joseph Lallo as well as a shameless plug for my friend Carol Marrs Phipps. What can I say? I'm a sucker for Fantasy.

Favorite movie: This is an oldie but a goodie! Well, old for me anyway. When I listed my top 10 favorite movie quotes, it reminded me of it. Near Dark. One of the funny, campy things about the movie is how the vampires are a bunch of cowboy-like misfits. Okay, well vampires are misfits anyway... lol! But these guys are just... well can't explain it very well. Have to see the movie.

Favorite music: I'm going to go with the Pogues and add to it, Flogging Molly as well as The Tossers. I love the music! Rowdy, fun, Irish!

Fantasy art:



And the funny:


Have a great weekend!

Near Dark is so underrated! Best vampire movie that never uses the word vampire.

I don't really have any favorite vampire movies. I know I've never seen "Near Dark". If it comes on television, I shall check it out.

Wow. A moment of silence for the fantasy art.

And I haven't seen Near Dark either. Will have to Netflix it.

Really like that art;)

Near Dark has to be the best B movie out there. And you're right, Alex. They don't ever mention that they are vampires.
