August 3rd 2015

“Definitely cracked and broken. We can cap these or pull them and do dentures,” the Night Dentist said. “No pulling!” the nosferatu hissed. It was odd to see such a horrifying creature look so vulnerable and afraid. “I understand your fears completely,” the dentist said in a gentle tone. “To put the caps on, I’ll […]

Technology

August 1st 2015

Eventually, Dracula embraced a bit of technology, under the gentle prodding of the young ones (those under 500 years of age).

“I told Robert to mail these out posthumously so, TA DA, the fat lady is thusly singing,” the letter said. “I want you to remember me going out the way I came in – making a fuss and looking for the free drinks, my cheeks rosy and my hair Hollywood perfect.” “Don’t let yourself dwell […]

Training

July 24th 2015

As they sat in the bar, Luke’s training continued. “The Force moves with us, moves through us, is part of us,” Obi Wan said, signaling for another round. “So,” Luke interjected, “the Force is in all of us?” “No,” the Jedi master replied very abruptly. “You must resist childish generalities like that.
