Warning: Possible Goth Triggers
If the camera "adds ten pounds" to peoples bodies then why does it deflate post-punk hair? Can't it be consistent? Have you been meddling with cameras so that they make fluff look less fluffy?

Even if I did know how to install a virus which would modify floofy hair images on any camera connected to the internet, how could I be sure enough people would install their third update that day *without* reading the 6 page single-spaced, one-paragraph user agreement with one line consenting to download the virus?

Who hits “Agree” to something they haven’t read?

It would never work.

Baby’s First Dracula

!!! I need this! I need many copies! One for my Dracula collection, and one for each of the tiny kidlings I hang out with!

Starting ‘em younger all the time.

I recently bought a decent amount of clothes while in a dark yet a smidge colorful fashionista mindset and I'm afraid I didn't think much on how it'll display my personality. Do you have any advice for someone who wants to keep their look classy, simple, and with a touch of color yet still show as goth? I feel like if I'm just goth through music choice and aesthetic/art then I'm losing a part of myself. I have no talent in accessories and don't know how to go back to looking like a femme fatale.

All of them. All the accessories. All the accessories you can accessorize are potential Gothic paraphernalia. For example; Etsy.

Here’s some blogs to avoid:

20 Years ago today One of the best movies came out called The Crow. Through the hardships that happened during filming and the people lost. Brandon Lee’s last performance was his best. I want to thank The Crow and Eric Draven for this movie. May 11 1994-2014

Drat you, James O’Barr!

You just wrote two rather long, passionate essays on classic horror and you still claim to be cured? Poor dear. You are in dire need of pastels.

It’s purely scientific observation.

Anon tricked me!!

Then my grudge lies with the script writers and the makeup department, yes?

The scriptwriters and *I strongly suspect* Universal Studios management.

However, a big influence on horror directors at the time, was the World War they had just lived through. 

This was especially true of Frankenstein director, James Whale, who was not only veteran of WWI, but had been a prisoner of war and suffered from PTSD for the rest of his life. Prior to Frankenstein, he had directed All Quiet on the Western Front, Hell’s Angels, and Waterloo Bridge - all centered around the horrors of World War I. 

Whale had a vision of haunting the public with the corpses left on the battlefield. (I can’t find the quote to that effect!!) I think the direction he and makeup artist Jack Pierce took was to make the monster a helpless corpse both killing and being hunted for reasons beyond it’s control. 

So, even though the specific decision to keep the monster silent was made before Whale was even assigned the project; I think he certainly did see the film as his own creative expression inspired by the wonderful novel NOT based on it.

In any case, you can certainly sleep well at night as a Boris Karloff fan. I think Mary Shelley would have like him, had they a Timelord to introduce them. He was a very kind, generous, and superbly gentle person. :-D

**Bela Lugosi, Claude Rains, Fritz Lang, and Buster Keaton were also WWI veterans**
